Easter Pugging Slave Pens

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:27 pm

Ii’ve been Pugging Slave Pens this Easter when I wasn’t grinding up another level.First PuG
Went OK, hepatitis we cleared all the bosses and only wiped once, clinic with a further near wipe. That’s the first time I’ve ever seen a Paladin’s “bubble” – quite weird. That this run went so comparatively smoothly, gives me hope again, The holy paladin did step in a number of times to backup heal, but obviously I couldn’t say if we would have managed OK without him. I think we would have wiped a couple of more times. Most of our problems were when people (including me) weren’t paying attention.

I did read up on thottbot before the bosses and I think that helped. I’m still forgetting to start scanning the players while the old spell is still casting, it definitely resulted in a couple of needless uses of natures swiftness. I also did actually run out of mana a couple of times, in one case finishing the fight healing purely on mana regen.

Zadoma 66 Human Frost Mage [Pink Elekk Society]
Gilfread 63 Human Arms Warrior [Darksun Angle Cult UK]
63 Night Elf Feral Combat Druid [Redrum]- main tank
Gamling 61 Human Holy Paladin [Only Noobs Bleed]
Flowersz 67 Resto Draenei Shaman [Munqui Tribe] – main healer.

The next pug

A mixed bag this one, several members were playing fairly well together, though for some reason I had my suspicions of the Rogue – more later. The Warlock feared a couple of times and the DPS pulled aggro, but we downed the first boss fairly well. The DPS started behaving better and not pulling aggro too fast. The second boss beat us and the rogue immediately left. We got a 70 mage in so we downed him easily. The 70 mage left and so that was that.

Not a Pug

Sunday evening and once again I’m looking to get invited into a group that was visibly forming. I’d had time to do a bit of checking the armory for the group and knew that they already had a resto shaman in the party. I’d barely joined, when one of the group – an enh shaman got kicked. The leader said he’d kicked them because we needed a tank. Now I knew the party already had a healer so the wrong person got kicked in my opinion, let alone without discussion first. So I quit myself! OOh soo moral! I noticed one of my guildies, Hmagemasterh, in the group a little later, and then in the instance. But he seemed to have gone offline within an hour so I guess it didn’t go well [smirk]. PS. Toxicshot now has a low Karma rating.
