I’ve not been able to play much lately, but I have been able to play a little. As such, I’ve been messing with some alts.
Tonight, I was running with a mid-level Belf Tankadin named Khesed, going through LFG like a fish through water. Picked up a group going through Zul Frak (or whatever the name of the troll ruins are outside of Gadgetzan).
Anyway, we were running through with little difficulty. No “gogogos,” or ashattery common to most pugs. It was rather nice. I was trying to use all of my cooldowns (at lvl 47), stuns, magic suppression, etc. You know, trying to be a good Belf Pally Tank.
I try to keep my gear and enchants up for the appropriate level. Which ain’t easy, considering that I have ZERO high level toons on the server. I have no heirlooms, and the only gold I have comes from me working the AH.
The AH has been good to me, I must admit.
This has allowed me to keep a tank set of relatively good gear. It is made up of Dungeon/Quest Blues, and some bought/found Greens. I’ve also worn some crafted pieces. I’ve gotten a pretty good mix (imo) of gear with good stamina, along with some dodge and parry. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t as good as heirlooms, but I’m trying.
So, my gear makeup combined with my liberal use of cool downs and Seal usage lead to an interesting remark from the healer.
When the healer finally spoke up – she said, “Khesed, are you planning on taking any damage?”
Was that a compliment?
My replay was, “Yes mam.”
At which point I immediately switched to Seal of Truth and increased the number of mobs I was pulling from 3-5 to 6-8.
Her next remark was, “Much better.”
You know… Anything to keep the healer happy!
What have you done to keep your healer happy today?!
P.s. If you happen to check out the armory; just know that I got two new pieces. I need to enchant the gloves.
