Thats 10 seconds of damage on Faction Champs in TOGC 25 being done to me.
and the things that picked on me
It wasn’t just once, we did it 3 times where I was dead in the 1st minute or so.
What was I doing to cause such agro?- dotting up the Skull. Mass dispelling, and running. Yet I got picked on by 3 faction champs, and a cat. I couldn’t work out why I was being picked on. Yes I was dotting up the main target, but my damage as per below graph on a filter of the top dps for that attempt and me ( the little while line) wasn’t peaking higher then anyone else, or being sustained high,
I even looked at my healing done, and Im down the bottom as that almost invisible grey line ( the white line was a healing priest)
When the raid leader is asking you in whispers “Why do you keep dying?” and I am practically bashing my keyboard in frustration because I haven’t done anything to get that much attention – Sniveling and saying ” They are picking on me” Is not a good enough reason.
Did I do enough in those 10 secs to survive – I tried. Blowing all my cool downs is silly, and I didn’t have time. I did use fear, I had a shield debuff at some point in that 10 seconds, and may not have been able to recast due to weakened soul – and there was these left Pot/HS/Fear/Fade/Meld/Disperse Maybe if I had used one more additional break I would have lived.
However what I did do was fear Gorin – he stopped hitting me, and I thought I was ok. 4 seconds later I am getting crited for 10k by the rogue. and 2 seconds after that I am dead. I really don’t think I was capable of reacting with anything that would have saved me from the damage I was taking. Unless I got more than an earth shield, a shield, and my own VE for healing, running from the rogue is not as easy as it is the Dk – I could blame healers for not healing me enough, or the CC for not controling their targets – or who ever was supposed to be controlling the people doing the damage to me – but I’m not. I just don’t think blaming me is appropriate either.
So I thought I would try something different – I mean it couldn’t get any worse right?
So I swapped sides of the room. I went Right instead of Left, I also didn’t put up my VE buff untill half way through. I survived, and when we killed them I was alive right to the end. So Yeah for me!
Was I doing my job? I cast mass dispel 41 times during the fight – Did ok on damage. Healed using Divine Hymn twice ( thats how long it went) used Hymn of Hope when the healers were low on mana – feared – faded, dispersed, ran away more times then I can count. I lived though! I lived! I was an affective tool! Rather then a rotting corpse on the floor.
