Is being scared of Heroics silly? Probably? Yeah, probably. I’m not scared of Raids but I am scared of Heroics. I imagine it’s because a Heroic is smaller so there’s a greater sense of personal responsibility. Who knows, though, really?
Anyways, I decided it was time to CONQUER MY FEAR so I queued up for a Heroic this morning. It was Upper Blackrock Spire, which I haven’t done since, oh, about ten million years ago when it certainly wasn’t re-tuned for level 100 yet. Unfortunately Blizzard decided to throw a bunch of “Instance Not Found!” errors in my face and not let me zone in so I had to drop group.
Later I tried again and this time got Grimrail Depot. I breathed a sigh of relief because I’ve done this one about fifty times on normal. It went smoothly, except for one bit where I almost died for no reason (still not sure what that was about) and yeah. It was nice and smooth and I got my Heroic achievement. All’s well that ends well.
Still, I’m scared to do it again for some reason. Why? I don’t know. I’ve talked before about how I most certainly did not used to be this way, and now I am. I don’t get it.
Either way, it’s still something I’m working on overcoming. Maybe I’ll even do another Heroic! …someday!
