Keep It Simple, Sometimes

So, my Tuesday-night WoW group made its foray into Blackrock Depths. We have not played in a couple weeks, due to real-world obligations, but we were kitted up and ready to go.

We cleared around the Detention Block to get the escort quest (for the Kargath Expeditionary Force guy) without too much trouble and then got ready to take on High Interrogator Gerstahn. We formed a plan and rushed in.

We got our butts kicked.

The Interrogator kept fearing half the party. Her buddies stabbed, bit, and generally mauled at will. We wiped. We tried it again, with a slightly different plan. And then we tried it again.

After three wipes, we were despairing of taking this boss. We were a bit low for the encounter (49-51), after all. It was then that I suggested we just rush the Interrogator and see what happened. I figured since complicated was not working, we should just try simple.

We dropped in her under thirty-seconds and then creamed her buddies.

And so, we learned a valuable lesson. Sometimes, all you need to do is just stab them until they fall down. Armed with that newfound knowledge, we proceeded to the arena event (the Hall of Iron, I think).

We got out butts kicked.

So much for newfound knowledge. Next time, we will try it complicated and see what happens.

'tis a credo of the rogue: simple always works. If you fail, you're just not stabbing hard enough.

Why am I posting this two hours after the original? Well, I guess I have too much time on my hands...

I would have to agree with that.

Me too :)
