Heroic Sethekk

That's right!

Heroic Sethekk is done and out the way. Swift Flight Form is mine and it is everything I wanted it to be.

So here was the line up at the start.

Melvin- Druid Tank
Melvin's bro - Mage
Mabd - Hunter
Profler? - Enhance Shammy (Pugger but really not bad.) I love having Shaman... bar none they are the best class as back up in an instance.
Aerthson - Resto Druid (respecced for the instance specifically)

We go in...


It was sketchy at its absolute best.

We get buff ready when Melvin's bro zones in and BAM /sheep. WTF aggro!!! wtf?! /cast a heal... all aggro on my tree... Dead.

This doesn't bode well...

Melvin's bro... they can't be sheeped.


Noobed has been hoping that I would write a post flaming Melvin and the PvP antics. My reasons for not doing this are... I just aint that guy.

But if Melvin is gonna tank... Melvin needs help.

Melvin... You really do need the xtra threat generating talent.

Melvin... You have to be able to tank mutliple mobs.

Melvin... Taunt is melee range but it will give you time to build aggro on your secondary target without the secondary target kill the group.

Melvin... If you Bash the 3rd mob... he aint aggroing the group either.

Melvin... Yes, you do have to click over that many targets all the time in a 5man situation.

If Melvin is gonna play a Druid...

Melvin... Innervate (He had never used this all the way to level 70. THAT is some speedleveling there folks... he aint even got time to read his own abilities. I am not sure but I think he leveled that Druid in 3 months while playing his other 2-3 70s)

Melvin... Battle Rez (Carry the seeds on ya)

Melvin... before shifting and pulling aggro, hit yourself with a HOT. It helps the healer out especially in an instance where there are aggro problems.

It got bad enough where I was worried about the group disintegrating and I suggest getting Herk to tank til the end boss.

I go an respec him and start up the tanking.

This is when noobed throws my game way off by saying at the end of Herk's appearance...

Its been a pleasure running this with Herk.

WTF?!... He can't just rip out compliments like that on me... I'll kill over.

We get to the Raven Boss and aside from Melvin's bro dying... ( I did Battle Rez him)

(See, this is why I don't write flame blogs cuz my healing aint the best neither...)

... the Raven boss is a wussy.

We get the last boss down after a coupla wipes... my slow ass tree can't make it around the column fast enough... who know?! and finish out.

Aerthson got respecced back to Balance that night.

Herk is still protection. I might start doing Heroics during the week with him. Also, Herk is definitely going Prot for Wrath. Unless, the druid goes resto. There seems to be a real shortage of tanks on Lightninghoof.

The embarrasment or Noobed is always inspects "Bless him for that"

So ya...

I have a bank alt... stuck in Org for when I need to check the AH for something. I bought gems for Herk and Aerth when 2.4 came out.


The other night doing our 3v3 thing... Noobed says "Dude, you are not gonna like this."

I figure with a good buffer phrase like that, I owe him enough to listen.

"What's with the +crit damage on the helm?"

/inspect my helm


Runs to AH right then... buys +SPell crit

/armory Herk


Buy another...

I was bad off...

You not only play well... you truly own.

I had such a day in WSG the other day.

I have been on Herk the last week getting him his bracers and boots for pvp. I needed some WSG (groan) marks.

First game was absolutely the best.

I mount and run to the flag. I get the flag and run back using all sorts of happiness... shield block, spell reflect, Piercing Howl, Stompage, Intercepts, Intervenes, PvP trinket... nothing was keeping me from getting in the base. I made it halfway to our base without support and then the Druid started healing me quite well and we were safe.

Get to the top and sit and wait for our flag. Then the druid leaves... and the rogue... and ... where is everyone and why am I alone?!

looks down...

Is that 2 pallys and a warrior?!

F*$) me!

They run up... I jump off and run out the base... NO ONE is near the base but me! Get tagged by a rogue and druid and die... I am so mad at this point.

My Rez is quick and I mount up back to their base and see our flag going up their ramp... I get halfway up their tunnel before my mount disappears and I hit the speed boost that some silly ally left for me when I see .

I run in while the spacegoat shammy with the flag is dropping down and magically get their flag before they are able to cap... then turn and look at the shammy... pull the axe and kill that MOFO.

That's right!!! Got killed, Dropped the flag, ran back got the flag, killed their flag carrier and ran back for a score after some nice intimidating shout action and my peeps met me halfway again.

I score the next one too.

Shammy scored the final with me on his butt killing people.

Screenshots incoming when I get home... soooo much fun and epeening for me.

Loved it!

And your heart was an open book

You used to say, Live and let Live

But if this ever changing world in which we live in

Makes you give in and cry



That song was running through my head all night while getting ganked again and again. Shammy and Pally in BEM while I am trying to get dailies done. I thought it was a one time thing. No big... run back.

After the 2nd or 3rd I begin to wonder. See, I don't gank all that often on Aerthson cuz he is usually satiated with all the PvP so I really wondered if these people knew me or had cause for this level of harassment. I may have even caused the level of harassment by refusing to leave the area.

I once ran from the southern part of Lock Modan all the way to Badlands and was ganked every inch of the way by a dwarf rogue. The interesting thing... there started this following of all the other alliance in the area killing me too. They all sat around waiting to see if I would keep rezzing and running. I died 30 times or more I lost count but I bulled (pun intended) through.

After so many blatant ganks... I get mad. Really mad. They are not gonna keep me from playing and I will kill you back.

So then... the Shaman... I have a hard time with them in general on the druid much less with a pally back up. I catch her getting below 20 and I swoop and tag that @$$. She can go to hell. The pally I can't find.


I am back in Ogri'la with ogre guards just waiting for something to happen...

I take a page from being ganked by a mage on Herk. I land on top of the building and proceed to trinket and Starfire his @$$ for 4k and just kill him from there.

God but that felt good.
