Yesterday’s random normal that was well in progress when I joined; I got the build shakedown and mechanics quiz for falkreath. Turns out, the group in there didn’t know what they were doing. The tank gets one shot and is screaming about 68k damage from what?!#? The 2H, Archer, Mage and Bone Collosus Boss.
I’m not pro, but I know a little bit. I had just ran this a few times the other day...as a tank, but now I’m DPS. The tank is running the Bone Collosus all over the place then dying for whatever reason and getting the rest of the group killed while scurrying to res...
I’m not sure why this chap kept dying and then screaming about it. I told him to block and hold boss in middle and should be fine as it was for me the day before.
There was an aire of animosity in the group and general lack of being coachable, so I had to dip.
As it was apparent there is a need for good tanks in the game, I swapped to my tank. Random daily got wayrest 2.
I don’t know what it is about these groups with max level nightblades but they’ve been terrible lately. I went in to round up the trash, got to other side of the bridge and they’re still fighting the first. Wait wait wait for them to finish it off and catch up....they’re still fighting trash. So I go back over there and healer cops an attitude and rolls out.
I can’t blame him. This DPS is atrocious. 5 minutes into this dungeon and still fighting beginning trash. It’s just rough. Pug life is really bad sometimes. I left too.
I find myself desperately looking for some decent action, put out zone chat: Tank LFG that doesn’t suck. The whispers start coming in. Not all pleasant. I agreed to tank NSO for a guy. He’s still putting group together as I port in and meet up with a couple DPS.
So we start working our way to the first boss. One tank. One healer. A few DPS. We start the fight. I think there was 7 or 8 in group by the time it was done. The leader is still trying to get more people in the group as we charge onward to the rest of the dungeon. The callouts were for kill Overchargers wherever they’re at. Smashed out the rock troll boss, Osara, the ads and the last boss...finished the whole thing with 9 players from craglorn pug in about 45 minutes.
Being real honest here, I’ve done SO a hundred times. It was just something to do today. Some of these guys were commenting about hair on arms standing up they were so excited to beat Osara and get this far in Sanctum and finish the whole thing seamlessly with 9 people and fast. It kind of gave me a tickle.
Yes. Really. There’s still some players out there that haven’t had the luxury of experiencing a decently run trial. Crazy right?
