Friday night Xaviorlight led us in VOA25 with some pugs and we easily cleared the pertinent bosses then outside for Wintergrasp, and back in for VOA10.
There was a running joke about baby-D tanking the bosses, as he made ‘concrete angels’ while getting in front of Koravon once. So when we got to Archavon, we talked about lock drain-tanking, and we decided to give it a shot.
My real worry as a healer was how long it would take the draining to start so he’d replenish his health, could we keep him alive through the whole fight? Draagon was on top of it. He calls his void, gets buffed and shields up, even using lock spells I’d not seen before. We pre-hotted him and with a yell ‘LETS DO THIS!’ he runs in…
Off the steps and the boss aggros, coming right at Draagon. I’m slamming my heal button to make sure there’s a large buffer of incoming heals… and Archavon’s legs twitch …some say they saw a knee, I don’t know. Draagon’s upper body makes a half turn back to the stairs, and I see the funniest confused expression on his face then he just lays down, concrete angel style again.
This is when I panicked. I start screaming ‘RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!’ and shadowmeld like the brave little druid I am. Other people seem to scatter, but at some point the tanks grab him. Slowly I realized I should probably heal something before all the tanks are dead.
Anyway we got this cool screenshot.
