So... you may've noticed me rampaging like a madman earlier. Yeah, I kinda went off on twitter, I went off in my blog... and that's what it's here for, but I still think I over did it.
I played my paladin for a couple hours, got her up to 81 and then while doing some more questing I ran into an asshole who just kept corpse camping me... fuck that, I logged back into my druid. Deepholm is a REALLY fun zone by the way. Amazing for herbing as well... holy crap I found a ton of herbs there. Anyway... I decided "what the hell.. My druid's farther along than my pally.. Might as well take him to 85 first... and if i'm gonna do that, i'm going to see if maybe there is something that *I'M* doing wrong"...
/g Anybody want to do a dungeon?
5 minutes later i'm in a group full of guildies, and off we go... Throne of the Tides. Hrmm... I think I remember how this goes. (hops in vent anyway... none of the people I was queued with are in there, but others are so whatevs)
(~30 minutes later) Well shit... that was smooth. What the hell was I doing differently? Hrmm...
warlock in party: Wanna do BRC? There's a something in there I want.
me: Sure why not.
(another ~30 minutes later) Fuck.. that was clean. What the hell's different?
*queue up vent* PANZERKIN! I'm not running dungeons with you anymore. You're too much of an aggro whore.
panzerkin (in vent): Yeah.. probably. What makes you say that?
me: Cause I just did 2 dungeons with other guildies and had almost ZERO AGGRO ISSUES YOU MOONKIN WHORE.
panzerkin: Heh.. Yeah... It could be just me.
*Cue me second guessing my rant from earlier while I go back to questing in Deepholm*
(hour-ish? later) Another guildie whisperes me: "You done Stonecore yet?"
him: "Want to go again? They have (some other item) I kinda want."
me: "Sure... see who else in guild wants to go"
(2o minutes later group is put together.... 45 minutes after THAT we're done)
Well fuck.. Yeah I lost aggro a couple times, but I didn't feel like the helpless little scrub-sauce I was this morning. I had to work harder than I am used to, and I had to pay a lot more attention... but it really wasn't too bad.
So yeah. Anyone I might've offended or acted overly snarky towards on twitter... if you're reading this, I apologize. Bears might need a little help... but I think I needed more help this morning. I needed to take more control of the DPS and, I needed to take more control of how I was tanking. I'm a good tank, but there's still a lot of that WotLK mindset rampaging around in my brain... need to work on that, but I think i'm on my way.
Now, if you'll excuse me, there's a size-12 I need to remove from my esophogus.
