That’s right folks. The time’s are a changin’. And I’m ready to branch off into my second category- Master of Heroics. Yes, the implications are shocking. I’m not just talking about stuff now. I’m running instances. It’s pretty insane. Although I’ve been sort of semi-farming heroics, today is the first day I’ve really put some time into it. So, I’m taking a break from the dungeons to share my experiences so far.
Firstly, I’m not done with the Fresh 80 posts. Although I’m ready to move on, I realize my posts there have been less than regular, and I’m not done walking you through all the basics. I’ll still post there. But the level at which I’m currently at in my PvE career is heroics, so I’m going to open up the next category about that.
So, to go over some of the beautiful events of the day thus far in a nutshell- I’m slowly starting to suck less.
I know, it’s a crazy statement.
The first heroic of the day, I nearly got kicked out of due to being the “drood with 900 dps lol”. Yes, I am so amazing, that I nearly got kicked out of a random dunegon group. I am just that awesome. But, after wipping a couple times (NOT because of me, more on that in a latter post), I managed to get through it, and net some Emblems of Triumph AND frost. Pretty sweet. From there, it only got easier.
By the second heroic I was getting my feet under me, and managed an epic 1100 dps. In PvP gear. I was pretty proud of myself. 1100 damage every SECOND! That’s incredible (not really, but just go with it)! And although I was still doing pretty aweful, that time no one commented on my mad skillz.
The day has been going like that since. I’m slowly using more mouse commands and less keyboard clicking/turning, which I’m sure is helping. But, most importantly, I’m getting used to my class/spec. The mamoth of complexity that is feral dps is slowly begining to make sense. And that excites me immensly. So far, I’m coming out at a steady 1600 dps, which I’m sure will improve as the day goes on. Plus, I’m sporting my first piece of T9 gear, which should help too.
The really exciting thing is that it’s actually going okay. I should be runing about in 232 gear in a couple weeks, and from there it’s 245, then some raids and… T10! I’m pumped!
At any rate, I’m off to go annihilate some more heroic bosses. I’ll drop another update later today on the results of my first day of heroic farming. Happy pwning!
