Slow night.. logged on late. Guildies were running LBRS for enchanting mats. I joined them. The healing needs were very small so I slapped on my “spell” gear to add dps. The group was Gongniu (warrior), Tatia (Holy Pally), Raouen (Hunter), Lashala (58 Shadow Priest).
Happily I out dps’d the level 58 shadow priest.
Unhappily.. I watched SWStats.. and I topped out at 158 DPS. Seriously!
I mean I know I’m a pally.. and pally is a tank heal hybrid.. and I kick butt at healing… but seriously.. I have only slightly better DPS than the standard 2-handed weapon. The tank was doing ~300 DPS I think.
Granted, my Spell set is still kind of pitiful. I think I had at most +400 spell.. but still. Geez.
Paladin: Melee healer, Tank/Heal hybrid.
Sure, fine ok.. but being a melee healer makes little sense when I’m adding a pitiful amount to the DPS. I mean why am I bothering to hit the mob? I’m certainly not going to kill them anytime soon.. and even if I throw up Judgement of Wisdom/Light, the amounts returned are just pitiful. *grumble*
*sigh* Anyway, we did one full run of LBRS and then Gongniu asked me if I wanted to “stealth” back in to just the first boss (Gongniu’s trying to complete his key). I reminded him that Pally’s aren’t so good at stealth (and neither are warriors). He reminded me that we vastly out-level the place and could easily skirt round mobs to the first boss.
We did.. it was very quick and mostly painless. I got a shard for my troubles.
Afterwards we made up a group to do Shattered Halls. I was 440 rep away from Revered with Honor Hold. Halfway through the run I got Revered. We called the run shortly afterwards (it was 2 in the morning).
That said.. I’m broke. Must go back to questing and make some money. I have 4 gold for myself, 300g for fiancee and I still owe fiancee 700 more gold. Must quest. Luckily I still have half the quests in Terrorkar, all the quests in Netherstorm, Shadowmoon Valley and Blades Edge. There’s tons of money in them-thar hills.
