Deathwing Meets the Old Ladies
I love football but it has a soporific effect on me if my team is not directly or indirectly involved. Doesn’t matter what time of day the game is, if it has no bearing on my team … snoring is likely to happen. Since MY team can’t fire their owner, the Colts vs. Chiefs wild card game means nothing to them … sssssnore … OMG! It’s 6:30pm, WAKE UP!
We first visited Firelands again where that Cat was up to her usual inadvertent attempts at tanking. Gurdrid, our tank for Firelands was very understanding and didn’t yell at that silly Cat. I don’t know, I blame it on always being alone and I think what’s going through Cat’s head is OMG! OMG! QUICK, KILL IT BEFORE IT KILLS ME! HELP! I’M GOING TO DIE! FASTER, FASTER! Maybe she should change her profession to tank but considering she’s directionally challenged and everyone expects the tank to lead on, that probably wouldn’t work out.
Shocks were to follow as Ragnaros grows feet … I KNOW … in Heroic and doesn’t stay conveniently located so that Cat can happily stay in one spot whaling away on him. Thankfully we quickly put an end to THAT.
Cat was pouting because once again that ratbastard Staghelm did not drop a certain staff so she stalked back home and Cim the Warlock joined. To be fair to Cat it’s really because I hoped Cim would be less likely to cause trouble in Dragon Soul. Never having faced Deathwing or even read up on it the likelihood of me screwing up was GREAT.
I don’t raid, I don’t have helpful addons, I don’t know what my dps is because I’m afraid if I did know I’d die of embarrassment and never return. I was … concerned.
I had been happy that Neo, my Fenris/Dragonblight server mate had joined us for the evening. Gurdrid, after having to deal with cheeky cats, said she’d rather not tank Dragon Soul as like me, she’d not met Deathwing before, at least in there. Neoangalo the Warlock left us and Neostrike the Death Knight came in to tank for us.
It was wonderful, I could not see anything with all the tentacles waving and bad guys jumping around and blood running and … yeah … chaos. And through the chaos a Death Knight voice calmly directed us and WE PREVAILED.
I was stunned silent. Okay … yeah … I’m always silent but you know what I mean. Deathwing was dead. Something I’d never hoped to see. I think that’s when Cim ran over to check and make sure he wasn’t hiding. It was a lot like another WoW moment that meant a lot to me.
