Molten Core, even when taken at a fast pace, is a long, hard slog.… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure
Molten Core, even when taken at a fast pace, is a long, hard slog. And I, a priest, died a lot. Had to repair before the last boss.
Healers play Whack-a-Mole. With competition, since the most entertainment, after a while, is to beat the other healers. I may have been way down on the healing charts, but, by golly, I had the most cleansing!
The truly new experience, however, was Mind Controlling certain NPCs in UBRS to put Fire Resistance buffs on the rest of the party for the last boss. That was really interesting, if a little chaotic at first.
I do wish the leader had been a little more detailed in his instructions (considering he complained at how 'green' the party was, you would think he would give newbie-type instuctions). I know there are better raid leaders in the guild. But who wants to do MC anymore? I suspect my twin brothers only offered to go to keep an eye on me, and Urnirus was positively gleeful to be released.

I have yet to do Black Rock anything. And I need to, since in there is where I have to go to learn Dark Iron Smithing.
Anyone wanna drag a 57warr through that place???

Warriors (like priests) are always in demand. If you can hold aggro, you will be welcome in any group. And, as you level, you will only get more attractive. Also, the more you group up, the more people will remember you (hopefully happily) and offer up your name when they need a warrior and you are online.

Yeah I can hold aggro, mostly.
well... I've already taken about 30 through DM/VC.
The grouping I haven't been so lucky with. Having half your party leave halfway through a crawl constantly, or dealing with party lords, has put a bad taste in my mouth.

Groups crumbling can be a problem. Try to stay in touch with the ones that don't flake (find out if their guilds are recruiting, too - most of my successful runs were with guild and/or family members). I got in things like Strat and BRD at 56 because I was a priest, I think people prefer warriors to be 59-60 for those, because of Hit Points and aggro-range issues.
I am not sure how well the new Looking For Group mechanic is working. The few times I have tried it, nothing came of it. I did better asking in guild and family chat if anyone was interested. The fact that I can't be looking for a group for a dungeon for which I am outside the range bothers me, because I still have two quests for Sunken Temple, but am 'too high' for it, now.

I have. And we've done a few crawls together.
Walking down that chain scares the snot outta me!!!
From what I understand, you have to use it in concert with the meeting stones.
Hmm... yeah, I have a few quests for Sunken Temple too.
And the Rescue the Princess quest north of Refuge Point still kicks my butt even when grouped.

That chain... ugh. I think I prefer the more dangeous 'jump at the wall and slide to the ledge, heal up, then back up off the ledge' method. I REALLY prefer it when dead, since I don't have to worry about missing the second ledge and falling in the lava then. (no, I don't think I can explain it better. I don't know how to explain WHICH wall to jump towards)

Yeah I've seen that jump. Scares the bejeezus outta me to watch them from across the pit when they jump.

That was me, gosh darn it. Having some trouble staying logged in, for some reason.
