The things I did for (Fool for) Love

The rest of Fool for Love went relatively painlessly. Except for My love is like a red, red rose. I think we've figured out by now that I have a terrible time with dungeons drops. Even when the drop is guaranteed, like the Bouquets, I can never seem to manage a decent roll on it.

It came down to a point where there was only one day left and I had already tried all three of the heroic dungeons that dropped it. So I descended into the normal level dungeons. The level of noobness was high, but what I discovered was that the level 70/71 players in normal Utgarde Keep frequently played better than the fresh 80s I've had the misfortune to group with in heroics.

Nothing against the fresh 80s. A lot of the time, I'm still in the same category of merely pretending that I have some idea of what's going on. But I assure you, there's no reason for my felguard to be tanking when the group already has an assigned tank. When he died for something like the 8th time, I switched to my destro spec. Felguards cost soulshards, but Imps only cost mana. And yes, I still managed to pull aggro a ridiculous number of times. I managed to stand still, not cast, and still pull aggro. Good times.

Good practice for my destruction spec, though.

I'm down to only one blue in my gear. And - who would have guessed it? - its a trinket I need to replace. A trinket that I've never seen drop, so I haven't even had the opportunity to fail at rolling for it. Deja vu.
