So with the wee lad off for the night Saturday and the threat of bad weather locking us in for the night (not to mention eventually shutting the power off for all day Sunday), the Mrs. convinced me it was time for some scenarios. I figured why not, and proceeded to improve Tumunzahar just a wee bit. His fresh as a daisy 90 ilevel was not sexy in the slightest. A few tweaks, two or three of which were couresty of Mrs. Amateur’s tailor, and I was all set for something new.
Once we queued and entered, we were all Goblins. Seemed to be in a refinery, and it looked grim when we realized we were a tank and two healers. Go group finder. The Holy Paladin did have a Ret off-spec fortunately, though his gear wasn’t all that great for it. Still, we rocked and rolled and while Mrs. Tank died a few times (still not sure how), we completed the scenario. I even got a couple upgrades from the Cache…except they were gone from my inventory when I left group. I put a ticket in for that one.
The second scenario was in Krasarang Wilds, so I was told much after the fact. We needed to shore up some defenses and do some Orc fighting. There was Mrs and I, and a Hunter. I had nearly no healing to do. When I’m a healer, I’m not a huge fan of those moments. What was worse, was that I had no idea where to get the supplies for the second defense post. The Gnome one was easy, but the other one…not so much. But, we finished it pretty easily. I even got to heal during the boss fight.
After that I felt…underwhelmed. I don’t know if it’s because I had no clue what was going on half the time, or because I felt useless as a healer (again, not the case during the first one), or perhaps a combination of the two. But I just was not feeling the fun of scenarios. Now I’ve read before that they seem to be catered more towards dps roles and to me that did seem to be the case, but it could also be a coincidence.
At the end of the day, I still don’t know how I feel about them. If the Mrs. or a friend ask me to go, I probably will. I mean, it’s a chance to smite about with friends and I never turn that down. But when I’m doing my own thing alone, I can’t see me hitting the queue button any time soon.
