Fail Friday - What is a dead key anyway?
I need to keep up with my Fail Friday posts. I actually find them rather liberating!
Now this week's Fail Friday happened on a Saturday. Was doing keys with Anna and Gal and HK and we were doing upper Kara. Everyone seems to love upper Kara. Melee love it because they want the Eye of Command. So people are always keen to run it.
HK's Upper turned into an Arcway, and my Upper turned into Lower Kara. Everyone said they were terrible keys and didn't want to do them.
So I figured what the hell, I'll put it up in a LFG, and see if any bites.
I managed to get a group together, and off we went. The tank died to the first few mobs (something in that trash was hurting a lot) and we managed to get through everything and were doing Moroes. The hunter was a bit slow and getting back and then the tank did a countdown but not everyone was there, and I panicked and hit something which was my trinket which hit the boss and the fight started and we wiped. After that it was a bit rubbish. The DPS yelled at the tank and we tried it again after that but we wiped at 6% on Moroes (and that was with no lust). So we decided to go to Attumen but the tank left group and that was the end of that key. I was a bit bummed because we could have done it! That was my epic fail, that pull on Moroes. Ugh. The only reason I wasn't kicked from the group was because it was MY KEY.
The warrior and the boomkin really wanted to do the downgraded version of the key so we went off again - this time we had a DK tank and a WW monk. Unfortunately, that monk died to everything! The tank at least was pretty good.
We managed to finish the dungeon going 4 mins over despite all our deaths and wipes. I was happy with that!
So a dead key is a key that you can't finish in time. But that's not a dead key to me! A dead key is a key I cant' finish! And I have had a few of those!
The interesting thing is that I managed to finish the key with random people from groupfinder. One of the other guys said that they only pug high keys, because with the raider.io addon, it's easy to find people who are good at high keys.
I installed that addon ages ago, but I found the constant updating annoying. So I stopped loading it. Then everyone was telling me to use the Twitch client.
So, all I have to do now is install the Twitch app and I can update my addons instantly. People have been telling me to do it for ages, but I only started doing it after guildies said how easy it is to keep my DBM up to date with the Twitch app.
I never used the curse client/w to update (many many years ago people said that your account could be hacked with the curse client). Now it's so convenient! Why didn't I listen to everyone and get this installed before?
Now it's heaps easier to pug mythic plus, because my raider.io is up to date. And, after last night, maybe it's not so bad to pug after all.
