Yesterday was the first day of Makeb! So did I run to my ship for some first class disaster tourism and giant slugs? I did not. It all comes down to boyfriend aggro.
Yup, boyfriend aggro. I'm sure you've all heard of 'wife aggro' or 'girlfriend aggro', but 'boyfriend aggro' certainly exists as well. While I wanted to go to the new planet to check out what's new, Tiger just wanted to PvP.
"Makeb's out and you want to PVP?!"
"Yes, Makeb is full of quests." *looks disgusted* "Besides, we can do lowbie PvP on our level 50's now."
"But but.. there's a whole new story, surely you want to check that out?"
"We can PvP and I'll play my guardian. I will guard you always and nobody will be able to take you down!"
His eyes were just twinkling with PvP so much that I understood there wouldn't be much point trying to get him to do something else. And secretly, I was also a bit curious at what it would be like to PvP on my sage. She hit level 50 before we tried lowbie PvP and I only healed in PvE on her. Of course I do have some PvP healing experience from my sorcerer Fárah. But Ravanel is wearing full Dreadguard with the best augments and everything. Surely that had to count for something?
The results were hilarious.
Ridiculous healing in Voidstar. Tiger was playing his sage Adelynn because Belaselle promised to guard me.
- Numbers overall have gone up so much! It's of course because everything gets scaled up to level 50 or higher, but it's funny when you're used to lowbie PvP as it used to be. Before the expansion, getting over 400k damage was already ridiculously high, and now people are getting 600k without effort. And look at that healing. My next goal is 1 million!
- Fighting feels so much quicker. Inductions are shorter (alacrity has been buffed) and people deal more damage. Playing warzones has a different feeling to it, they are over before you realize. It's something to get used to, but I like it so far.
- Of course we lost this Voidstar because of some the high damage of the other team and some people not calling out when their door got attacked. Some things never change.
Healing on Ravanel in PvP was fun. She's just so much better than Fárah! I will play some warzones while leveling up to 55. I just hope I won't level too quickly.
Eventually, I got Tiger to come to Makeb with me and of course he did like it after all. I'll write about that in my next post.
