the Tournament of Champions was quick trivialized by
This San’layn was a veritable thorn in our side, by comparison.
I’m assuming you are trying to point out the difficulty of the Blood Queen as a boss compared to what had come before. Typically when I think of a ‘thorn in my side’ it is an annoying yet minor issue. Were you going for minor or major stopping point here, describing the encounter? If more major than minor maybe ‘a bridge too far’ analogy is in order?
pulling such extraordinary numbers that he even Ater
You think can handle heroically geared warlocks
Add ‘you’ after ‘think’
It was the sort of despised mechanic leading players to seek inventive
ways of solving raid boss problems, that “clever use of game mechanics.”
I know ‘clever use of game mechanics’ is a thing but even so the ‘that’ doesn’t match with the tense. I think either ‘those clever usages of game mechanics’ or ‘that clever usage of game mechanics’.
Cataclysm was still well off
Maybe ‘a ways off’ or ‘far off’, well off sounds like a status more than timing.
This was an unnecessary with Drecca.
I look forward to reading these to get the inside track on all the stuff I missed out on =D
“Klocker, where are you?”
“I’m coming over to you!”
Klocker comes all over the place.
Blizzard caught wind of the strategy and nerfed the encounter
This doesn’t make sense to me (perhaps because of me not being there at the time). Did they nerf the encounter, or change the mechanics to account for the players killing themselves off, or both? Perhaps a different way of explaining it?
Sometimes a few rogues liked to test their luck and push to beat Jungard, and even Ben showed the warrior up from time to time. But for the most part, Jungard cleaved a path of indiscriminate justice as he shot to the top of Recount and stayed there
You bolded Jungard the first time, but not Ben, and Jungard the second time. Bold for consistency
As Fred’s Divine Shield expired, he crumpled to the floor, just as Blood Queen Lana’thel breathed her final breath.
All the bold (fred). actually, lots of that. whats your stance again? All names bold all the time, or only names the first time in, or other?
No cliff hanger ending!?!?!?!?!
We’re not at a cliffhanger yet! I insert them when they appear in the story!
@Kedavra It’s more foreshadowing…
Uh, where’s the second Jungard bolded?
I’m starting to seriously reconsider my stance on bolding names altogether. The rule is supposed to be: first mention per post.
Can’t help but wonder if I should strip them all, now. Julie brought this up as well when she previewed last week’s post, stating that it made no sense and had no business in any of these.
I say bold them all or not at all. Leaning more towards Julie’s opinion.
Meh. The more I think about this, the more it is right, which means going back and editing everything.
Going back and editing? Thought you code or something.
