Last night the group I ended up running Lost City of the Tol’vir with had the most unfortunate luck with tanks. We wiped on the first group of mobs due to the tank having connection issues, and only just scraped through the second group before we decided to give him no more chances. Our next tank left after the first boss, third tank lost connection on the run up to mobs to the third boss and the forth tank left just as we were about to start Siamat as he didn’t get the drop he wanted from the boss before.
During all this we were quite fortunate the DK had a tanking off-spec which was enough for trash but without the gear we didn’t want to risk trying a boss.
After the lengthy run we thought we may aswell give Siamat a go otherwise we would just be standing around waiting. The fight began pretty smoothly however with the tank taking more damage than usual and with 1 less dps the adds spawning were beginning to take their tole on the rest of the group which stretched my healing and drained my mana pretty fast. Before phase 2 I had already become oom so with the druid’s innvervate on CD I wipped out my shadowfiend. This managed to squeeze me though to phase 2 where innvervate made its appearance. A few AoE heals and the group was topped backed up in time to nerf the boss to oblivion. Needless to say I pulled in quite an applause from the group which made this experience one of my most favourite healing times to date.
Adlanna dings 85
Last night I managed to hit 85 with Adlanna after a fairly easy stroll. After I got Wizzam kitted up in 346 gear for raiding I soon began dabbling on my 60 priest. It wasn’t long before I grew quite attached and wanted to play her more and more becoming quite fond of a healing role. Soon after I had reached Cataclysm content and within 2-3 weeks I now have her level capped. Now I just need to round up a few more to try and re-maintain a trend that was beginning to form.
When I first started playing WoW my first level capped character was Wizzam (or Poncho before my first realm change) at level 60. After capping him again at 70 when TBC was released I began on my rogue Tynee who hit 70 only weeks before WotLK was released. So 1 capped in Vanilla, 2 capped in TBC I had hoped for 3 capped in WotLK but the trend stopped there. I only managed to get Wizzam capped a couple of month before Cata and at this moment Tynee has been shelved since I began that cap.
If the mountain didn’t appear to be so steep I would love to drive myself to get Tynee capped at 85 with Wizzam and Adlanna as well as maybe bring Deewon my DK up to 85 along with either my Warlock, Warrior, Paladin or curveball Druid to get 4 capped for this 3rd expansion.
Last night I managed to polish off the last of my Northrend dungeons and finish a few quests in K3 to ding the al infamous level 80. It was getting late and I had been playing my priest quite a bit recently so I didn’t get far into level 80 however I did manage to complete a couple of Mount Hyjal quests to begin upping my stamina and replacing my now pretty useless heirloom gear.
I’ll probably take a little bit of a brake from her for now to allow myself to get a chunk of rested exp in order to make the 80-85 walk more of a jog.
