So, have we all seen just about everyway possible to send pt2 of TOD awry?
Seen it all eh? Intim on the altar, glitterdust up there, ranged attacks like many shot and endless fusillade "mistakenly" targeted on the shadows instead of their lord, rune arms firing at shadows, just about everyway to make the large frown on the raid leader and dedicated shadow kiter/tanker in pt2 we can think of eh?
No, i was wrong, i had not seen it all.
Your dedicated kiter is using firewall to pull the shadows, he's tanking them out, so, why not............cast icestorm !
Yeh! Lets do that! Icestorm on the shadwlord, icestorm all around him, while your kiter/tanker starts to mumble on the mic "it's...........it's not working?..........why isn't my firewall landing?......(1 x shadows on the altar with the party now.....a bit more frantic), my firewall!, they aren't landing!, what's wrong with firewall?........heal on through!, i'm trying to get aggro!......somethings terribly wrong!....
And when the poor healers have brute forced us through, and everyone (though mainly poor old Coit's the leader/kiter) nerves are shot well and truly for pt3 (that went pretty sideways too, but i don't have the strength for that :P), then pipe up and say...........
"maybe i shouldn't have icestormed up on the altar"
Yes, good call, let it be known - icestorm on the altar = bad, especially if your kiter/tanker is using firewall.
So like the post title says,,,,, read my forum tag, i believe it more then ever now.
(i was discombobulated at the time, but it's turning into another hilarious DDO Ghallanda story for me already x)
