"How do I Hate Thee" - a poem about Gulp Frogs
Based on "How Do I Love Thee" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.
Your crappy stacks of poison make me pissed
If Blizz deleted you, you won't be missed.
My damage sucks as heals, try as I may
Hitting you as melee, makes my heart twist.
I hate thee freely, as I nurse my sore wrist
I hate thee purely, for as ranged it's OK
I hate thee with a passion put to use
There's no grief more great when Toxin 10 stacks
Instantly kills me and gives me the POOS.
Celestial Gods! Please grant me their death!
Or let Bufo drop a pet if you choose!
I shall but love thee more upon their last breath.
Gulp Frogs and Kilnmasters have to rate as the most IRRITATING mobs as a melee on the Timeless Isle. Especially as a tank (ie, I kill slowly), since that's the only way I can kill anything around there. I run through trying to get to the water and have a trail of frogs throwing toxin at me, and displacer beast, nature's grasp, swim form isn't enough to get me far enough away to get away from their attacks. Well, I lie, it's ok for ONE gulp frog attacking me, but not more than one! And killing them as a healer? Well, a typhoon and roots are useful but only against ONE as well. I swear, the Isle was made for Warlocks...
I have to spend ages sitting there trying to clear room so I can kill Bufo without myself dying (which to this day, I have not done successfully as I have always died when I spend time there alone). I was feeling frustrated the other day and advertised in trade WTB Gulp Froglet, and someone told me they weren't tradeable... I was sure they were, but I didn't argue with him. And they ARE tradeable! Gosh, at least there is hope for me yet. Thank the Celestials for the Auction House.
