Last night logged in for a bit, and was invited to go help a dragoon try and get a pole arm called a Gae Bolg. There is a Dragon NM named Vouivre in Ifrit’s Cauldrin.
I died once on the way up there due to Sneak and Invisible being so horribly random. When I aggroed, I just kept running till I could find a safe place to Reraise. Cozmos slept them and I reraised, reapplied Reraise, and cured myself and casted Stoneskin while the others fought.. Felt kinda bad, they had all gotten past just fine.. and had to run back for me. >< (sorry guys) As much as I hate the term “noob”, thats exactly what I feel like when things like that happen… especially as a whm, always feel I should have it more under control.
We got to the area we were heading to, and cleared out a few monsters then started on the NM. We were doing alright, till the NM did something pretty harsh to the tank (Feon) and brought his HP pretty low, and I cured him rather than casting “Flash” like I probably should have. I couldn’t save him with cure’s in time, so I again felt bad (Rusty Katella??) as they had told me to “flash” when I saw it do “Fang” something. I think my computer was lagging because I was in the middle of the tanks cure before the “Fang” message even appeared on my screen. 😦 At one point it ended up hitting Feon for more damage than he even had hp for! After we all reraised and got raised, they wanted to try it again or go after a different Goblin NM, but I and a couple others had to go. It was pretty late for me, and I worked in the morning.. 😦 Hopefully next time it will go better.. maybe I’ll be more on my game!
That NM has amazing auto regen though! I looked it up this morning and they said something like 50 hp/tick? sheesh!
