Another Long Journey Completed

That were then.Looking down on Magtheridon through the floor in the Blood Furnace, just over a year ago.



This is now.

Rolled into the deep bowels of the Hellfire Citadel be the Pit Lord Magtheridon, former ruler of Outland and now prisoner of that par-Nelf, part-demon, part-life insurance salesman Illidan. Now I's all for keeping demons locked up, but apparentlies Illidan's peeps done been siphoning off his blood for ta make Fel Cocktails for the Friday night drunkens and not inviting none of us. Which is just dang rude. So we decide ta put Maggy's arse down.

And that's just what we did. There were tanking and healing and dps'ing and getting bounced around and a whole lotta clicking which did something, but I don't know what, 'cause I can't be bothered ta keep track of the details. And of course there were the Vampiric Touching, in all the naughty places. And then ol' Mags were dead, and I got ta take his big-ass head back to Honor Hold, where they put it on a big stick for to help manage the local fly population. And they gave me this shiny ring fer me troubles. Even better, when I got back to Shatt, Deputy Glowy Crystal Dude In Charge of Phat Lewts Asuur done gave me this nifty dress ta wear, which were a big improvement over the rag what the Aldorks had sold me. T4, they calls it. Now, I'll be replacings it with me own hand-made Frozen Shadoweave dress before too long, but it'll hold me fer a while.

And after we'd put Maggy's giant arse down, we all flew up ta the Blade's Edge Mountains and did the same fer old Gruul the... the .... the... bugger. I cain't remember what the fuhg he is. Well, the chubbernugger is dead now, so it don't really matter, do it? Here's a pic of his dead-arsed self:

No lewts fer ratter outta this place, but that don't matter none. I had me a great time, and I's looking forwards to whattever come next. By the way, here's a shot of Ratter, looking all non-shadowy fer a minute so's you can admire me threads.

One last thing. BRK done put up the WWS numbers, and they show me throwing down a little overs 700 dps fer Mags and the High King Ugly, and 626 fer Gruul. Is these good? Bugger'd if I know. No other shadow priests in the raid fer direct comparisons. I were near the bottom end of the dps pack, but that ain't surprising since most everybody else were more geared and experienced. So I figgers I'll just hang onta these numbers and see how much I can make'em go up in the futures.

I think it's a fine number, mon. You can get higher, but you'd need mo' gear.

600-700 is great for your current level of gear. I believe that 600 is the target number for entry into early SSC/TK. I presume your DPS will increase even more after you finish your upgrades from Tier 4.

Around 600 dps seems fine as a shadow priest has the utility of being a mana battery for the group. I'm sure that damage will increase a bit with the new robes.

I am appalled, angry, hurt, and even depressed. I notice on one of those fine pics that there was a certain dirty elephant following you around. I am not sure what he told you to get the coveted "Ratshag's Minion" spot, but I can assure you we did not agree. As soon as I find an attorney willing to listen to my non-sensical ramblings, Mr. Elephant will be hearing from my lawyer.....

Grats Rat

Nice dps :) Think thats about what you should have.

Had a quick peek on your armory profile, you got too much spell hit. As you got 5/5 shadow weaving, you only need 76 to be hitcapped. Sooo, to get even more dps, replace some of the spellhitgems with the really nice runed living rubies and watch the dps rise :)

DPS? Pshaw...let's comment on something even more important. Your gear is really cool looking. Really.

Congrats Rats

Congrats Ratters! He looks mightly sexy in his new get up...might have to log into my lvl 1 dwarf to admire them in person :D

Bell said...

Bring me along, Bre. I want to admire them too.

Khol Drake said...

At long last, Ratshag is wearing something that doesn't make him look like a clown at the Darkmoon Faire. Congratulations.

Grats Ratshag on your kills and your loots! I think 600-700 is pretty average, us Spriests get the short end of the stick when it comes to threat, we generate so darned much of it that even in a 25 man I am usually riding the tank's behind on threat. (usually first to die if the tanks do go down)

Dezdemone said...

Oh, hmm I didn't get to the point.. I guess I'd better do that! Our threat can be dps precluding, so as your tanks get better so will you. I doubt if I will ever be able to "go all out" though =(

Kat said...

Yummy Lootz.

Congrats!

My highest DPS on Gruul was 850ish, but thats with all post-kara gear. 600 is good for where you're at. If you start pulling too much aggro, spec out of Improved Vampiric Touch, or just don't use it at all. Things tend to not like it when you heal the people they want to kill.
