Big thank you to all the Khyber Barbarians - I lost the Bet
So Friday night I took a bet that I couldn't solo heal 11 Barbarians Level 20+ through an Elite Shroud. Barbarian Had to show as the primary.
I lost the bet - not because we tried an failed but because after 3 hours starting at 8:30 PM EST on Friday night.
(Thanks to those three that joined)
In that time I got 3 Khyber Barbarians and a bunch of mixed comments (2 Pure and one 11/8/1 Barb/Ftr/Bard AA)
Some clerics/fvs sent tells telling me I was nuts
Had a paladin actually send me a tell saying I was bashing paladins because I wouldn't except him
Had a monk joke with me about him having more HP than a barbarian.
I had couple Tells saying they wished their barbarian was "Big" enough to be Shroud Flagged.
I even had a tell asking "How are you going to break the crystal in part 2 without an arcane?" <- Just to note, All 3 Barbarians had a Bow or Throwing Weapons with nice damage modifiers
I even got an invite to drop my silliness and come heal a CitW.
I honestly thought I was going to win this bet, I just didn't count on losing because there was not enough Barbarians to even 8 man the Shroud. Also being the home server of Shade (Axer) I was sure there would be enough Barbarians running around.
So now this makes me curious;
- Has the whole self healing thing gone so far to an extreme that even people that loved their DPS monster Barbarians are leaning more towards self healing classes?
- Or was Friday night 8:30 to 10:30 PM EST just the wrong time or was it just the 20th of December (Holiday)?
- Or was there fear that a single Cleric level 25 would not be able to heal 11 Barbarians and only 3 had some semblance of faith? (Having a single life line on an Elite Raid does have risk)
- Or did the LFM leave many barbarians Stunned that someone actually wanted them as they were and not demanding BYOH?
Losing the bet was not the most disappointing thing, I was looking forward to seeing the unbridled fury of 11 barbarians taking seconds to remove portals and possibly 1 rounding part 4 and possibly taking 5 minutes to complete part 5 on elite.
I think you might have a point
I think there might be alot of people by passing their barbs for lvling and such at the moment, i just looked through my toon list and realised both my barbs are still sitting at lvl 20, just havent had the urge to lvl them yet... maybe ill break one out this week and cap him quick
