A few things have happened in the last while:

a) I hit level 60,
b) I'm almost halfway through getting a raptor for a mount (though raptors don't fly so it seems kind of obsolete beyond the novelty of having it),
c) I did my first and second dungeon, the first being very good and the second not so much, and
d) I got a new hat.

So I played like mad during my holidays and a bit here and there last week (lots of overtime at work) and got to level 57 before running out of quests. I had half a mind to take the zeppelin when my friend hit me up to do a dungeon. I was really nervous as I'd never done one before but they were all at level 85 so as it turns out, I didn't have to do much at all.

It was kind of long, really. I shudder to think how long it would have taken if everyone was at the appropriate level.

Anyway, I ended up having a lot of fun, since we were all laughing and joking about. We were dashing about and I had to make this jump that I failed at twice, and finally I was like "You're gonna have to toss me. DON'T TELL THE ELF."

Unwittingly this became a running gag because monsters liked to come up and just throw me around. I went off a ledge, another threw me up into the ceiling...it was fun. Ultimately I didn't do much beyond providing shielding and the occasional heal/resurrection.

I got a level and some gear out of it, too. Granted I wasn't able to use them for a few levels but I'm quite pimped out now. I got myself a jaunty bowler cap, though now I've replaced that with something like a pimp hat.

So today I decided to give it another go, and did the random dungeon finder thing and...urgh. I felt so embarrassed. I don't have fast enough fingers to be a healer in a group. And it was one of those serious groups that are using Recount on everything and barely talk at all, so I felt really out of place with my casualness. I ended up getting the party killed a few times. I'd like to think that it was partly not my fault as enemies were attacking me like mad and stunning me or just knocking me about. I don't think I'm cut out for the priesthood. Maybe I should only dungeon with DPS or something. Dungeons seem very ridiculous in some ways, with the amount of creatures that just like to swarm.

Speaking of swarms, Outland quests are really frustrating that way. It seems I can't take two steps without being attacked by two or three enemies, and then I end up standing still long enough to kill them for them either to get help, or a monster who's doing their usual walking circuit will be half a mile away and still come running. And they respawn so quickly. I guess they had to do something to up the difficulty back then but yargh, is this what I have to look forward to for the next few expansions? I am but a lowly priest who lacks the skills in what I'm supposed to do. Maybe I should unlearn my talents and change to a Shadow one so I don't have to worry about it anymore.
