Mythics unlocked!

I was chatting to Nelly in guild about the balance of power questline and where I was up to which brought up how I still need to complete a mythic 15 for the purple bear.

Admittedly, during that chat, I laid all the blame on our failure at the feet of our DPS.  We were doing quite well initially, we had learnt what we needed to do with the class make up we had but then….all three of them changed….I mean seriously.  All of them!?!?

Drew change from Shammy to Priest

Ben changed from Priest to Pally

Oui changed from Warlock to Rogue.

So I am blaming them – and I did so publicly 😀

This sort of feels appropriate 😀

Anyway whilst chasing meat and completing the main questline for Balance of Power, I got a whisper from Nelly requesting my Guardian services for a Mythic 15.  I was pretty wrecked (friends suicide and work issues causing me so much stress right now) and wasn’t really sure I would be able to handle it.  I should have trusted that instinct ;p

But we grabbed Ben and Oui and Chris (Sorry if that was wrong) and went on our way to Black Rook Hold. <shudder>  I felt bad for not having Drew and Michael in the run with us, but I am hoping we can get one done next week for them, fingers crossed for a key we can do.

It wasn’t a brilliant run by any shot, I was missing my cooldowns and had no clue what was happening for most fights.  At one point Chris says to me “Just go up the stairs, grab some spiders and then charge back down to us!” Simple instructions right, pretty clear.  Welcome to the world where I completely screw that, forget to charge and die on the way down! YAY ME!

The Nelly saying “Remember to kite the mobs around!” and I was like…”why the heck would you do that, just stand and fight!!  TAKE IT!!  I have stupid amounts of HP, I can take….any…<dead>  oh um.. “<shame>.  They turned red, angry and 5 times their size….I didn’t die to that again…just the first time and it made so much more sense the second time.

I have no idea what the death count was in the end and I am pretty sure Ben would have made up for at last 90% of them.

But I know why the places/mobs and bosses seemed so unfamiliar to me, I clearly haven’t done it that much.

Apparently I had never done it mythic before.  I know I have done it heroic so it wouldn’t be all that much different, but it made me giggle.  The one I do a level 15 is the one I haven’t done.   The one time we did do it, I think we did the first 5 packs and kept dying…to..something…I can’t remember but it was awful either way.

Thanks to all for coming and putting up with my fail tanking.  I appreciate it.  My purple glowy bear is now one massive step closer now. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

  1. Both Nelly and Chris really know their stuff.

    It’s not something I’ve invested a lot of energy into learning, and I haven’t properly adjusted my play-style for M+. Mistweavers are amongst the worst M+ healers too, so I was getting a bit frustrated that I wasn’t doing better..

    1. I had no idea monks weren’t good for mythics – you seem to handle us very well! That or you are just an excellent healer anyway – it makes a massive difference in high stress situations!

  2. I certainly understand your frustration Michael – I need to work on my disc set to be a more viable healer in 15+’s, now to be the bearer of bad news.. but i think you need to do a 15+ whilst using the glowy bear butt skin for it to count 😀
