Random Heroic: Drak'Tharon Keep

My 4th random heroic was Drak'Tharon Keep. Good group but we wiped once on King Dred due to some adds.

The Prophet Tharon'ja was an interesting fight. I wasn't expecting to be transformed into a skeleton and to lose all my abilities. So I did what I always do: I started clicking those skills. I came close to dying there because I was losing health fast but then I figured that one of the skills should heal you since there's no other way to regain health. So once I started using that skill I was ok. By now I've learned one thing: to expect the unexpected on these major bosses.

Here are the achievements that I've... achieved.

Oh Novos!

Well, one thing to note about the "skeleton" part - as a skeleton you get a taunt which, unless you're the tank, you shouldn't use.

Yeah, for the boss, as DPS, you just mash buttons 1 and 5 I think. Gratz on these and previous achies bud.

Grats on these! A bonus Oh Novos! in addition is nice. What I've just started trying to do, is if I find an excellent random pug, is to ask if they want to run the heroic daily (which has been "Patchwerk must die!" all week) next. The group wanted to go but our tank dropped when the time came.

Grats on your success! Reading that groups are so much easier to find now makes me want to resubscribe. I dropped my subscription about six weeks ago due to boredom and the fact that I lost my job in September. I'll be kicking this around for awhile now. I always avoided groups other than with the guild due to the time commitment - even for short dungeons it always took at least 15min to get started.

@Tal oops again heh heh. I guess I messed up then. That's why he was hitting me so hard. In the heat of the moment it was hard to read those skill descriptions, I guess.

@frogi thanks mate! Not quite 1 and 5, but rather 8 and 1 lol. My key bindings are probably really weird.

@Elkagorasa I don't pay attention to the extra achievements and I sure as hell don't plan for them in advance but it's really nice when I see that achievement pop up on the screen.

@TB sorry to hear you've lost your job. Though I still have a job, sometimes I feel like quitting due to the boss pissing me off. Oh well... If you're thinking of coming back to the game, I would say now's the best time. This new tool (to my mind) has refreshed the whole game, not to mention the new Icecrown dungeons and raids.
