I brought out the big guns this morning - my heavy leather coat with… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure
I brought out the big guns this morning - my heavy leather coat with the cold-steering-wheel-retardant gloves residing in the pockets. And then it wasn't as cold as I expected it to be. Go figure.
For contrast, there was a car very much on fire in the median (going the other direction, thankfully) on I-435 just west of Metcalf this morning. And the fire truck was WAYYYYY back in traffic. I doubt it made it to the car in time to save much of anything.
I can't seem to kill my Inner Demon (WoW reference). I am 2 for 8 right now and every failure just makes the next time I get one that much worse, because I am seriously starting to fear them. I was half a second from killing this last one when it took me over. SO FRUSTRATING! I am a dps class! Why the hell can't I kill this thing?!

Have you tried switching to a different server? :P
If only life was that simple.

Why would I switch? I am in a decent raiding guild filled with people I like - that's kind of hard to do. I don't HAVE to raid, I like raiding. It's just that particular fight is causing me some frustration right now.

Which quest is it??? And who's the baddie that yer trying to kill???
And are you using any potions??? I stupidly learned recently that you can use more than one. They don't cancel each other out like I thought.

It's Leotheras in Serpent Shrine Cavern. You pretty much have to have completely geared yourself out in Karazhan, Gruul's Lair, Matheridon's Lair and several Heroic 5-mans to have the gear to even survive in SSC.
As for potions - look at the description closely. Some say 'Guardian' some say 'Battle'. You can have one of each on at any time (Flasks say they count as both - you can have ONE flask, and no other potion). However, food, PC and scroll buffs are separate from that (although PC and scroll buffs compete for the same 'slot' if they buff the same thing)
So, when I go raiding I typically have:
Priest's Stamina buff
Druid buff (darned if I remember what all that buffs)
Mage's intellect buff
If I am really lucky we have a Disc/Holy priest with the Spirit buff.
Bluefin food, which is a +spell damage buff
Flask of Pure Death (which means I can't have any other flask or elixirs)
Wizard's Oil on my weapon for the + damage.
All my gear has the top end + spell damage where it exists, and +Mana per 5 seconds or - threat, if I can't get + spell damage.
Believe me, I am as dangerous as a lot of really geeky people know how to get a character.
I just keep losing precious seconds (I have to deal 11,000 damage in ~30 seconds) to stupid stuff. Some of it my fumbling fault, some of it not. One more Mind Blast and I would have had the begger this last time (the log said I managed to deal 9,400 damage) but I tried to use mind flay (because the icon said the Inner Demon was in range) only to get a 'out of range' error. Lost me maybe two seconds. And the Mind Blast I started casting right after had about half a second to going off when the Inner Demon took me over.

Hmm... which server are you on??? H or A?

Aggramar, Horde side. I seem to remember you mentioning characters there already.
|Date:||November 2nd, 2007 04:21 pm (UTC)|| |
Yeah. I have a few there.
It's been a while though.

Flask of Pure Death buffs Shadow and Fire damage, by the way.
And I meant to say Ihave to top end + spell damage ENCHANTS. Silly me.
