Valiona & Theralion
I’m gonna go ahead and say it right from the start. This even sucks. It doesn’t just suck, it’s one of the most horrible raid encounters I’ve done in Cataclysm so far. Lemme tell you, there are some pretty horrible raid events that have a very large learning curve. None of them make me want to pull my hair out quite like this fight.
I’m unable to understand how I always get hit by the purple effing fire, but I always get hit. I don’t necessarily die, but I always get hit. It doesn’t matter where I stand, or how far away I am, I always get hit. That damn dragon has a thing against me, I know it. Tonight, after what felt like the one millionth attempt, they got those dragons down while I laid there dead
The worst part is how fail I look on the logs. I apparently like to eat fire… with my face and body, so I am almost always standing in front of the damn dragon when she breaths her purple flames of doom. I didn’t die last night, but I took an awful lot of unnecessary damage (like a damn noob). Then I get stuck in the Twilight realm where there are pink orbs of badness you’re supposed to avoid. Not to mention that while there, you’re taking constant damage. Oh yeah, did I mention that I had no idea what to look for to get the fuck outta that place?? yeah, no. I didn’t. So I wandered around, dodging pink orbs of badness looking for the right corner with my way out.
Admittedly, I seemed distracted. I posted on the forums that next time when I’m not feeling 100%, I’ll ask to be swapped out for a healer who is feeling much more on top of things. Maybe it’s the dynamics of the fight that were throwing me off. Maybe I wanted to log onto my finally-level-75 Inscriptionist and work on that so he could make Darkmoon cards. Maybe I was dreading going back to work. Whatever was bothering the crap out of me seemed to affect my performance.
As an advocate for Stay the Fuck Outta Fire, I sure set a bad example last night.
