Ok.. Been a few days.. Holidays yada yada…
I did get in some play time, but unfortunately, I continue to capture the splendid screenshots that I try to get.
I wanted to talk about playing a Rune Priest. Back in EQ days, I played cleric and I enjoyed healing folks, but it was a different game altogether I’m learning. It was PvE. The MoBs were exactly as smart as people. I had to be careful how I healed to keep aggro off of me.
So in WarHammer, in Scenarios, and any type of RvR activities, I’m like a pile of sugar and the “Reds” or “Destro” are a bunch of ants. They see me, and it’s kill time! I spend a lot of time just simply running away or running in circles healing myself trying to stay alive to keep everyone else alive!
It’s still a blast and leveling is crazy when you’re doing these Scenarios. It’s my goal each time to be the top healer, but I usually come out being 3rd, 4th or 5th because I consistently die 5-6 and up to 10 times during a scenario. Maybe it’s bad play style, but I blame the class! I think it will get better as I rank up.
Since I’m in a new Tier, there is much to explore on the new maps. I also get to do new quests. We took on a public quest just to see how we’d come out. We went around killing orcs for 30 minutes or so until they were all dead. We also had to smack down a bunch of catapults or something. No problem. Once we’re all done, the big man spawns.
Our new found engineer friend “Dethpenalty” helped us in our quest to take down the boss. We were doing pretty good until a group of reds came in to “help” the champion out and we got our asses handed to us swiftly. No problem. We run right back and and take it on again. Just as we get him to almost dead, here come destro again to lay into us. You’d have thought they were chicken shit attacking us while we were down, but turns out, when the timer ran out and all we had left to do was find their asses and give them swift deaths, they smoked us again!
The said part is, I couldn’t just “log in my main” and come tear them a new one! Some day.
Tonight during the WarHammer “play time”, we decided to take on another baddy named “Gorglur Stuntysplitter“. He was mean. The first time, I was laid to waste quickly. (He didn’t like me healing). However, we refused to give up and let him win! After all, he’s just an NPC!
On the second time, he fell! We smoked him, drug his corpse around through his camp daring any others to attempt attacking us to suffer the same wrath he did. No takers!
Exited the game at 75% into Rank 16. Hoping for 17 next go round!
It’s past 2:30am. Good night!
