Whose bright idea was it to force me to use some daft little wand in place of my shield? I mean really? And what kind of freaking reject of an elemental spends all his time blasting me with fireballs instead of hitting my ever-so-wonderful, endowed-with-shield-spikes shield? BAH!
So I spent quite a while on Thursday and early on Friday trying to get the boomerang. The blasted fire elementals on fire ridge don’t actually “hit” you .. so you can’t block.. so no happy procs to generate tons of dps from my shield *sigh* I had to fight each one individually.. but I was able to get them down without losing too much health. It wasn’t horrible.. until I got to the last guy.
Level 56 elite .. um.. Blazerunner I think was his name. Zap him with wand you have to hold in your off-hand.. then re-zap him whenever his fancy blue shield goes back up. GGRRR. So no shield for Tatia.. and he hits like a ton of bricks.. and he doesn’t actually “hit” so half my dps is gone GRRRRRR. Death multiple times.. I was able to rez behind him and get the living flame from the box.. but haven’t been able to kill him. I -did- get him down to half health.
I may have to log on at prime-time and see if I can group up with others in the Crater.. or call in the big guns (beg a 70 guildie for assistance).
The rest of the weekend was spent off the computer, out-of-town. I did manage to ding 56 last night after we got back.
