The other day I did a random and ended up in Halls of Reflection. In my frost tank spec, I’m comfortable with the waves and the gauntlet. Does take fiddly management of all my abilities, and isn’t easy, but normally I get through it without any deaths.
This time, however, we kept dying and I could not work out why. I still don’t, really, but the team pulled through eventually and I really enjoyed the run. Gave me positive hope for WoW’s community.
What was great is the guys in that random team. To help, the hunter Seigfreid switched to BM, got his gorilladin out, and offered to hold secondary threat in the waves. That worked really well, but nerfed his dps. A few times, I’d see his gorilla holding off a rogue or other mob, and I’d not need to worry about taking over. Fatts, the tree, did well too. Once we wiped and he said, “I got distracted by something shiny, next moment you were dead”.
Given we’d wiped a few times on the waves, we decided to do the ‘stay behind Lich King’ technique and I was just typing “dont fall down the little crack” when Fatts fell into it. The adds started coming then.
I edged right up to the crack, so Fatts sitting at its bottom could get LOS to me and heal, which worked for a while and I kept tanking.
Then somehow he was standing next to me again.
Thus Fatts’ wedge technique was named. We then suddenly all died… because our dps was too low on gauntlet and Lich King autopwned us. Would have been so epic to complete it with Fatts’ clever wall climbing. Seigfreid switched back to MM dps, and we finished it. So my thanks to Pershing and Allday too who dps’d their socks off and took it all in good humour.
If I could /friend these guys, I would have, and I apologise for whatever the hell went wrong that day.
