Blasting the Labs

I got on a bit late last night after watching the Mythbusters Baseball special. It's one of the few shows my wife and I both enjoy.

After I logged on, I did my dailies. I hit Revered with Ogril'la and bought the Ogril'la Aegis. Once I get it gemmed and enchanted it will be better than my Aegis of the Sunbird, but just barely. I also like the fact that it's a different model. My Aegis of the Sunbird looks exactly like a Crystal Pulse Shield, which is a fairly common Healing Sheild.

Afer finishing that up, I was asked to help Rhubarb in Shadow Labs. Rhubarb is a Holy Paladin, and I'll do anything to help a Healer.

The group was me (Prot Paladin), Rhubarb (Holy Paladin), Wichita (Elemental Shaman), Calexis (PewPew Smite Priest), and Origami (Feral Druid).

Origami opened the night with "I wonder why I never tank for your groups. Oh yeah."

I learned a couple of things on this run. First, never, never tell Wichita to "go all out". At one point he was pushing 1100 TPS.

"General Calrissian, Our Crusiers can't repel firepower of that magntitude"

We cleared the instance with very little problem. Heroes is really overgeared for Normal mode 5 mans anymore. Of course the drop that Rhubarb was looking for didn't drop. He did pickup some Shaman healing mail off of Murmur and got some more Lower City rep. Eventually he'll be able to get his Lower City Prayer Book.

There are some big changes afoot in Heroes Inc. We are seriously considering changing the way we do raiding. It would be the ultimate situation for me. Stay with a group of friends and continue raiding and progressing. We'll see how it goes.

"We'll stand a better chance against them than that Death Star!"

But I know what you mean Honors. Whenever I tank for Wichita I'm always fighting him for aggro... and feral tanks can generate a lot of aggro on single targets.

BTW, I like MythBusters too. :)
