Yeah so, I really do queue solo into pug heroics to show off that some healers know what the hell they are doing.
I’m not quite 120 yet but I’m getting a little frustrated with the Alliance side of things, as well as some of the Horde stuff. So far we had the Horde completely destroy Teldrassil and basically that entire god damn island. It’s gone, the whole thing, not only the tree but the rest of it as well. They also took Lor’danel, which was another little town I use to defend from Horde all the time.
In another cut scene several Alliance ships were chasing a horde ship with some damn Loa priestess on it who calls a Loa dinosaur to push their ship along and then 100 or whatever horde ships show up and destroy ALL the alliance ships. I think all, anyway, maybe one got away.
Then WE head to the Ruins of Lordaeron to get Sylvannas, but she makes us look like an idiot over and over, once when she dumps the poison all over the place and we get totally fucked, then another time when we DON’T for some reason, blast her immediately in the face with several arrows, she lol’s and nearly kills everyone by destroying the building. WTF, seriously? You know she destroyed the WORLD TREE and killed probably 900+ Alliance right? You don’t talk to crazy, YOU FUCKING SHOOT IT IN THE FUCKING FACE. Oh there’s Sylvannas, SHOOT HER.
I’m out in Windshorn hills right now where Horde carpet-bombed the town and is running around killing everyone. So much winning right Alliance?
We fought a group of Horde for a good hour today after the Tol Barad battle. A paladin named Racknar, who had something like 30 ilevels on me, would practically one-shot me so any time I saw him headed in my direction I had to run like hell! Getting hit by 1 kill for literally over 2 million damage is crazy. I wanted to log into their server and say GG but it rankles a bit when someone outgears you so much and they can’t but help hit you for a fuckton of damage naturally.
So, I did it! Thwarting the Twins! I figured out that keeping the adds up is vital, I mean I already knew that but what was really messing me up was my Ice Time shoulders. It causes the frost bomb to explode for around 400k damage, which was killing all the adds, which made this encounter basically impossible. I swapped those shoulders out, remove any talents that increased the damage of Blizzard, and easy peasy:
So all the prior 60+ attempts were for naught because of that dang legendary. Sigh.
I got the pretty weapon finally!
I then immediately named 2 battle pets after Karam and Raest. I may switch them to squirrels though if I have two that match.
Back during MoP, gear out in the world got extremely unbalanced. The best pvp gear level was 550, but raiders could get to 580ish. That meant they could destroy pvpers very quickly, we’re talking 3 globals. I personally recall dying to a raid tier shadow priest on my resto druid in the span of a Silence, or getting destroyed with a penance or two by a disc priest on my 550 hunter.
Timeless Isle was a real problem on pvp servers in particular, because raiders were gods and could kill pvpers like it was nothing. I didn’t ever want to see THAT again.
But, here we are. I’m around 935 ilevel on my mage and priest, but if I run into say, a warlock who is 960ish, they can melt me and NOTHING I can do will save me, I can’t even outheal the damage. On top of that, you can have someone hit you even at the same item level or close, and take you to 20% health before you know it. It’s pretty bad.
Though I will say out in Tol Barad, with the exception of that raiding warlock, I’ve still been doing ok.
But, it makes me want to raid just to keep up, it’s frustrating. It’s totally not fair for me to do that, or have a raider do that either but here we are, again.
