Make it stop…
Anything but that…
Don’t make me run Scarlet Monastery Graveyard any more!
I think I ran SM-GY on my priest at least a dozen times yesterday. I never want to set foot in it again.
Except unless “AwesomeRetributionPally” needs to run it. Just once for you. Now hurry up and level.
Spent all weekend on my priest, hit level 32.
1 FULL FUCKING level of that was done in the graveyard.
But I have a mount!
Most of the time we were 3 or 4-manning it.
The first attempt we were 4-manning. New group. A pally tank, holy-spec pally doing DPS with an arclight spanner while bouncing off the walls, myself, and a non-retarded hunter. (He’s one of the hidden toons from my guild.)
We buff in the hallway, I sit down to take mana…
Hmmm…. everyone but the hunter is suddenly out of range and line of sight.
Sure enough, they managed to pull the entire first room, the one with the Interrogator.
I tossed a few heals but just didn’t have the mana to keep up with that level of stupidity.
It wasn’t a wipe because I didn’t die.
Had a chat with the unstable paladin. Explained that the healer needs to have mana before starting.
Reminded the tank that we were 4-manning this.
After that, the only deaths we experienced were the gankings when we would step outside to reset the instance. To be fair, we did a bit of PVP ourselves.
I managed to get this before level 30:
Check out ths one:
I happened to be at the Crossroads when the Crossroads was under attack. (When is the Crossroads NOT under attack? Seriously.) I’m rather proud of my killing blow on a DK.
We swapped out several players during the graveyard marathon, but the core was always tweaker paladin, the hunter, and me. And when tweaker paladin wasn’t wielding his Arclight Spanner he was going at it bare knuckled. He even tanked for us a bit. With a fucking wrench. /facepalm
Bragging moment: The non-tweaker paladin tank whispered me to tell me my heals were great and even told the party. I also ran BFD the night before and the caster-druid we coerced into tanking said it was the best heals he’s seen in a while. (Poor guy was running BFD non-stop to get some staff.) /flex
Like many of you, I’ve come to the conclusion that the Statistics page is garbage.
My priest has died 5 times.
The statistics page is correct on this.
I have 1 death by falling. (Which I call total bullshit on.)
The statistics page is correct on this.
I have 1 death by random mobs. My bad, I pulled a crapload of stuff at level 6 or so to see what I could do. I learned that a level 6 priest does not enjoy the same level of mana regen that my level 80 mage does. Oops.
The statistics page does not have a place for this death.
I have 3 deaths by other players. 2 in Crossroads, 1 in the entrance to the Scarlet Monastery.
The statistics page says I have died 3 times in a 5-man instance.
After getting bored in SM, “AwesomeBMHunter” and I ran out to Desolace to quest. (I have to call him something…)
I have never before had the pleasure of running with a hunter that knew what a trap is and what to do with it.
It was like magic.
Bam! Mob on ice! Bam! Mob on fire! Bam! Ice all around!
He even used them in the instance to protect us squishier folk in the back.
His pet only did something stupid once and he was able to take care of it.
We even used the pet as an OT in BFD when things got a little crazy. (We were 4-manning the end of BFD. We’ve been able to 3 and 4-man level-appropriate instances on our alts. OP? I don’t know what you’re talking about.)
A non-retarded huntard. Who would have guessed?
Priest noob moment!!!!!
So… I’m using mouseover macros for just about everything. Flash Heal, Power Word: Shield, Shadow Word: Pain, Renew, Dispel Magic… just about everything.
I’ve been having a hell of a time with the Dispel Magic. I had heard before that it was a touchy spell, like a Paladin’s Cleanse and it sometimes failed to remove an effect.
But I can hardly get it to work at all. I finally narrow it down to the macro only working if I have the creature/player targeted. That doesn’t really fit my mouseover theme.
I tear the macro apart.
Remove the default to the target if no mouseover available.
Maybe because it behaves differently between friendly and hostile targets? Try two casting lines, one for help and one for harm.
Tearing my hair out.
Resolve to research this the next day.
Wake up this morning and have an epiphany.
OMG. What if I never actually dragged the macro icon to my toolbar and I’ve been using the standard spell this whole time?
In my defense, the action bar that I keep some of my lesser-used spells on is really tiny. I can’t read the macro name text on them, it’s just a white smudge at the bottom of the icon. In this case, there just wasn’t a white smudge.
Or I can just blame it on having clawed my eyes out in SM-GY.
