Completed all of the initial quests for the Consortium. As I was sitting in the Consortium courtyard, reviewing my questlog, I realized that I still needed to run Blood Furnace. Luckily there was a group LF tank. So for the first time in a long while, I got to tank for a PUG. We were Tatia (me 65 Pally Tank), Leonitus (62 Warlock), Nadeshiko (63 Priest), Elronkyusu (64 Hunter), Javg (64 Hunter).
It was a good group in that we completed the instance.. and only wiped once (on the big eyeball)(srsly, how do you do a long extended fight like that with no mana break?).
It sucked in that -I- out DPSd both the priest (expected) and Javg, one of the hunters (!?!). HTF am -I- Tatia the Tank supposed to out DPS a freaking hunter. BigRedKitty should take away his hunter card. ALSO, although Elronkyusu out DPSd me.. he was an idiot. He rushed pulls and made me chase critters all over the place.. at one point he declared that if his kitty died one more time he wasn’t going to Rez it anymore(WTF?). When we finally ran back to kill the big eyeball he ran into the room and shot it just as I sat down to drink from buffing everyone. The door slammed shut and he and the other hunter and the warlock had to kill it on their own (they’d locked the priest out in the hall with me). Seriously, “Huntard” was a term invented just for him.
All said and done, the Warlock and the Priest both told me I was a good tank. Yeah me!
After the instance I turned in quests and then finally dinged 66 while killing spiders. YEAH! Four more to go.
