Last night, I didn’t think it could get any better when I soloed 5 like-level and higher mobs in Arathi Highlands. There were 2 31s, 2 32s, and a 33. I was so stoked, I challenged Level 37 Punitor to several duels outside Org… and proceeded to lose every one of them, though not by much on two of them.
I was mistaken about how cool that was, when I was quest/grinding this morning before work in a mad effort to ding 32. I went to Witherbark Village in Arathi Highlands. While beating on an Axe Thrower, I aggroed a named gray, Nimar the Slayer. Oops. He is a level 37. I killed the firstmob, but there was no recovering from the beating Nimar was putting on me.
Flee, drink, arrogantly go for it mano y mano.
After 2 minutes, he started to look seriously beatable. He no longer had that cocky look on his face that he started out with. It was a simple, but conscious task of keeping SoC up while having a Judgement of Light burning into him. Every so often I’d get a nice Reckoning from my 4% talent (now 6%) to knock off a new more points. Every 20-40% health, I’d heal and watch my mana. I cast Consecration several times, but its heavy mana cost kept it at a minimum in case I needed to keep healing. In the end, I rock.
