Oh, and today I accomplished something that would mean very little to most of you, but which made me feel pretty damn good.

For you CoH players, you have heard me talk about how I cannot play a Tanker to save my damn life. Well, today, Interstellar Trucker tanked an even-con 8-man Frostfire mission on Invincible, and came out with only two deaths, one of them from a Shadow Cyst Crystal spawn, so I don't count that one as much. ;) Admittedly, I had a Sonic Def shielding me and an Empath who stuck to me like white on rice. Still, I managed to herd well, hold aggro, and even recover things after the Peacebringer and the Storm 'troller on the team scattered my mobs every damn fight. I came off like a Tank that knew what he was doing. Felt fuckin' great.

Yeah, that was my reaction. Taunted the mob, started to back up to my herding position and went "Oh hell, a cyst!" Ran in, telling my sidekicked scrapper to join me, and started hitting it, taunting all the unbound Nictus to me. No surprise I died, really, but he and I got the thing down to 40hp before we dropped.

Why anyone would run Frostfire on Invincible is beyond me.

You could have fooled me about the tanking with BBQ Bill- I thought you were a pro. So I guess you must just be higher on the tanknewb list than I am. :-)

Well, c'mon, we were just duo'd. Small mobs, no problem. This, though, this was MADNESS.
