Son of a bitch. Really? REALLY?
I don’t know what it is, but it seems like within a day of me mentioning a character that I’m using for the Ironman Challenge, that character ends up dead.
In this case, though, I was completing a quest while partnered with three NPC’s. We had to kill elites. Now that seems stupid right from the get-go, but hear me out. It was a calculated risk. The mobs were all three levels lower than mine, and I had three NPC’s with me. I pulled the first one and we burned it down quite handily. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad, I thought to myself.
My next pull was a named Boss. Again, elite. Again, three levels lower than my character. Again, outnumbered four to one. So I pulled, and we attacked. His health bar barely moved.
Suddenly, I was at half health. What the fu-
Then I noticed that he had a casting bar. What the fu-
Then I was dead.
And so, another lesson learned. If the info bar shows an elite mob, bounce. Doesn’t matter who gives you the quest. You can be loyal, or you can be an Ironman. Rarely can you pull off both.

I have started another character. I don’t plan on talking about this one until it has exceeded Level 23, because I am now superstitious as well as paranoid.
The WoW Challenge continues. Or rather, starts again.
