This is, by no means, a rant, nor is it a whinging post about the overpoweredness (is that a word? Spell-check says, No!) of any particular class. Perhaps its merely a story about how bad I am at playing my class. Last night I logged in to my beloved Warhammer for the first time in days. I loaded up Gankalicious, my 33 WH, and off I went for a little solo-action.
That was where the fun ended I'm afraid. I was beat not once, not twice, not even three times, no, but five times in single-combat against a 26 DoK. I have always shied away from attacking DoK's whilst solo and now I see why. I may not be the greatest WH in the world, and I am a little rusty, granted, but I do have some experience (10 days, 17 hours worth of actual play time according to my tome) so I can usually hold my own. I was quite surprised that I couldn't do enough damage to get him below 25% at any time even when I had him disabled. I checked the combat log and he was mitigating about half of the damage I was throwing out. I was also surprised at him much damage he put out, and how quickly he was able to drain the hit points from my bar.
In my defense I have a bit of a generic build as I'm never sure what I'm going to encounter, and I did forget to silence him.......every time....... Lessons learned and all that. Losing to an opponent (OP or otherwise) 7 levels beneath you is a bit humiliating, I have to say. Ahh well lets hope he got some good rr off my corpse and had some fun which isn't always easy to do at those late hours.
