I would love the opinion of some my moonkins/WoW players out there on this one. What do you do when you have an “off” night? Even the best players have them. I had one last night during our raid.
It started out on Deathwhisper. I was in the group staying on Deathwhisper and after the initial adds came out, I used Starfall. Next thing I know, I have an add on me. Thankfully, the healers were able to keep me up until the tank had control again. I know I should have waited a few seconds more but just started blasting.
My off night continued on Rotface. About halfway through the fight, I got picked for mutated injection. It was just my “luck” the add tank was right behind me. However, I forgot about the slime spray and just ran backward to the add tank. The slime spray hit me and I was dead. We still downed him but I feel stupid.
Then we moved on to Festergut. One of our players went down and I was called to battle rez. Now, this part was partly because I was testing a new UI that night called Tukui v10. It has bars for the people’s names in your raid since I don’t need a healer UI. For the life of me, I couldn’t find the person in my list to target them. So I knew it was melee so I moved from my position up and not paying attention to my range meter. One of the people by me got the vomit debuff and then I got it and I gave it to another person. I died. The person who originally got the debuff died. The healer was able to heal himself. Again, we downed him but it was still not a good feeling.
Then we moved to Professor Putricide. We wiped once on this boss. Partly because we had some new players with us. However, even in the one wipe, I managed to do something stupid. We were in phase 3 and I had to battle rez another player. When I was called to do it, I was between two slime piles. I send the battle rez. No sooner I did that then the area I was standing in got slimed. I died. The guy I rezzed died. We downed him on the second try without issue but again, just adding on to my night of fail.
So what did I do after my off night. Well, one I went to a target dummy and practiced my rotation to reassure myself on knowing what to do. Also, I consider it the equivalent of punching a pillow when you get frustrated in real life. It doesn’t help you. It doesn’t help the pillow. But it does feel really good. After that, I went to bed and got a nice nights sleep.
So how about moonkins or WoW players in general, how do you handle the off night?
