Well, today’s run was the first big fat greek fail.
It’s really got nothing to do with greeks. I just feel a need to add that whenever I say “big fat”. And this run was very… greek.
I only had time for one run today, because me and my girlfriend are moving in a month, and today we’ve had to empty out the shelves and pack everything into bags. The couple we’ve been subletting from have decided to sell the apartment, which suits us fine, since we are signing a contract for our very own apartment on thursday morning. But they’ve decided to get some homestyling to make some extra cash, and the homestylers have ordered some furniture to be thrown out of the apartment. We’ve been working all day, and were finally done once they arrived. Now we’re living in boxes for a couple of weeks.
Anyway, the run was a complete fail from the start. I got into Blackfathom Deeps, and from the looks of it, our mage was tanking it. He sure pulled aggro from everything he could. And made sure to mention he had a level 45 draenei warrior. I don’t know why. Probably some kind of information service. Very kind of him.
The tank tried, but wasn’t able to keep aggro for his life. I don’t have much to complain about with regard to him – he tried his best, it wasn’t enough. But at least he tried.
The first healer went offline and had to be booted. The second healer seemed to think he was on world explorer challenge, because he seemed to run over every inch of the dungeon he could get to. He would’ve been better off healing. But nooo – running around and pulling extra adds seemed to be more his melody. All the while, the tank is trying to kill stuff, the mage is tanking and yelling for heals (on him of course, not the tank), while a poor DPS paladin is trying to keep everyone topped off while everything is falling apart around him. Myself, I’m softly hitting my head against the desk.
I swear, this challenge sometimes doesn’t seem like so much a challenge of only finding gear in the dungeons, as it seems to be about finding a functioning group in the dungeons. Skill over gear? Heck yeah!
Anyway, here’s a screenshot of the last wipe before I decided to pull out.
