We stopped due to time constraints, but probably would have stuck to the grind if RL didn't expect us to be up early the next day. I blame waiting for control of WG and actually getting a Vault team together with all this Valentine's Day BS for killing my evening.
Also, screw you, Archaevon, for dropping everything but Druid gear every damn week.
C'est la vie.
There's something about playing through the 1600's that's just fun. There's a few things you can expect to happen below 1700:
- CC chains never happen. If you some how got Psychic Screamed into a Blind into a Sap, they got lucky.
- Kicks/Pummels always miss. Fake casting is not needed. I think I hardcasted a non Nature's Grace'd Regrowth in a DK's face, with pushback, and never got Strangulated.
- Positioning always puts them into bad situations. Out in the open, easy to CC.
- Cooldowns used at the wrong times. Divine Shielding the first Fear against a Warlock, when you and buddy are both at 100% is always the wrong move.
Case in point, last night's second match was against a DK/Pally team and aside from some random strikes and auto attacks, my Lock and I kept both opponents perpetually cc'd. We basically stood in the middle of the Blade's Edge Bridge and spammed CC, while spreading damage. If that DK wasn't sitting in a Fear, he was Cycloned or Rooted. Unstable Affliction over Entangling Roots is so awesome. Poor dude had less damage done than the Felhunter. The funny part was that whenever my partner was pressured, he'd jump off the bridge, watch the DK and the Pally jump off after him and then Demonic Portal back up to the top.
Lemmings comes to mind.
Sadly, I'm stuck grinding honor again for the Deadly Ring now. I really don't even want to think about the amount of honor I'm going to have to grind to get the Battlemaster's Trinket, the upgraded Medallion and the Deadly junk to replace my Hannibal-Lecter-look-alike-trash (Titanforged Leather Helm of Dominance).
