My mom took it upon herself to talk to the manager of the bus drivers in my town. He wasn’t there (haha yeah), so she gets a call back from the head boss guy about an hour later.
“Hi, I’m Tom from Transit.”
So my mom said, tersely, her name. So he responded with…
“No, I’m Tom.”
Not even joking. So not joking.
Believe it or not, the conversation went downhill from there.
“We”, meaning us, meaning For Whom The Bell Tolls, have cleared ICC. Lady Deathwhisper keeled over, sexy rogue loot was handed out, then the elevator kidnapped me. It was hilarious.
At one point you have to fight a trash mob dragon with a million hitpoints. Your spell effects look absolutely monstrous on a model this huge. Our druid threw up Insect Swarm and it apparently looked like space invaders from melee.
Gunship battle was all kinds of crazy awesome. People rocketing back and forth, rifleman tearing into our raid, fireballs and cannonballs and rockets, oh my! It took a few wipes to figure out what was killing our captain tank, but we shortly got to watch that silly alliance ship go down in flames.
Then our zeppelin bugged out and we were stranded in the middle of nowhere.
The druid took a leap of faith and died.
The priest levitated gently to the ground, where she was promptly ripped apart by angry alliance NPCs. Then one by one we all teleported to her corpse and were mercilessly murdered as well.
It was both sad and hilarious. Bugs are fun!
Saurfang was an absolute blast. A merciless enrage timer, cleave damage like you wouldn’t believe, and unforgiving adds. Saurfang summons these blood beast things (FEAST, MY MINIONS) and you have to kill them. The trick is, you can’t let them melee any raid member. So you have to kite them while killing them.
Frost Trap from Ghostkid and absolutely pro roots from Tomms (the druid of awesome) kept them under control, and emergency frost novas and death grip/chains of ice combos kept us going through emergencies.
Down goes Saurfang the young, and Saurfang the old wept in the manliest way possible.
We tried to screenshot the corpse, but Saurfang the old just picked up his son and walked off with our screenshot. Jerk.
I picked up a couple hot pieces of loot, though I didn’t win the rolls for anything. Tomms won them all, but he graciously passed them to me, I have no idea why. I rolled a two for Muradin’s Spyglass. A TWO. WHAT IS THAT?
Oh well, got it anyway, thanks to the infinite kindness of the best druid in existence. Now comes the tough decision whether to use both Muradin’s Spyglass and Eye of the Broodmother, or go with Muradin’s and Resurgence…
My gut feeling is to go with Muradin’s and Eye, but I reeeally like the extra intellect on Resurgence, and having nearly 600 extra spellpower during cooldowns is awesome. But does that compete with a near permanent 125 spellpower?
By the way, just so you know, Slow Fall counts towards stacking the buffs on trinkets like Eye and Muradin’s. Feel free to spam that to build a full 5 stack before the fight even starts, and to keep it going during lulls.
Got my 50k lifetime kills achievement thingy yesterday. There was much grats, and all I could think of was “I’d have like 150k by now if I didn’t have alts”, but you know what? That’s fine. PvPing on multiple characters teaches you far more in the long run then just PvPing with one class forever.
I am absolutely in love with fire for PvP. It’s surprisingly easy to control both enemy casters and melee, and the damage is really, really good. I didn’t really think Scorch would be this powerful, but chain casting it into a target afflicted with Living Bomb leads to extremely quick kills.
My fire build, however, is being tailored specifically for BG combat. So, I took Empowered Fire, but not Improved Fireball. I do use Fireball, though infrequently, but the purpose of it isn’t a combat nuke.
It’s for those situations where there’s a fight going off a long ways away, nobody is paying attention to me, and I see a good target to snipe. Nothing ruins a healer’s day faster than getting crit out of nowhere for 10k. My highest crit so far with fireball is 12k.
Totally random strategy. Find a destruction warlock, and follow them around. Just attack whatever they attack. Hilarity ensues.
Tactis wise, I play extremely defensive. Hiding as far away from the main fighting as possible, judiciously applyig fireballs, scorchs and living bombs to everything. Immediately LOS anything gunning for me, run from melee whilst wearing them down with instants and living bomb.
Lemme tell ya, melee gets really tired of chasing something that never stops moving whilst maintaining DPS on them the entire time (even just using LB and fireblast, that damage adds up extremely fast). I can’t even count the number of death knights, ret pallies, etc, who chased me for a good twenty seconds before saying “you know what? screw it” and breaking off to go fight something else. At which point I killed them.
Silly melee. Never let a mage cast freely. It leads to you burning to death.
Also, Flamestriking a stealthed or vanished rogue is probably the best thing ever.
Actually, reflecting Chains of Ice onto a death knight is the best thing ever.
Actually, no, putting Living Bomb on somebody with low health on a flying mount, then watching them die in midair is the best thing ever.
