I’ve never finished Sithilus and the main reason has been boredom. It’s like Desolace used to be… long distances to cover for repetitive quests. So Mabango is 59, so what to do? Even with the bad experience of Mabaho’s initial excursion to Outlands bouncing about in the back of my mind, Mabango returned to Origimmer, before using the portal to stand at the gates to Outland.
Taking up the first few quests seemed promising. Mabango, with her ever present demon was able to easily match even two or three mobs at once. This was far better than Mabaho who died about every second combat or spent the whole time drinking. Even “Enslave Demon” came in handy as if too many were pulled an enslave cast to even the odds. Then it was just a trick of managing when then were released to turn on her. It was obvious that they weren’t putting in their best efforts for Mabango though, and their threat generation is terrible.
Questing went well and Mabango made 60 last night. I returned this morning to sort out talents and training etc. I also picked up her new flying mount, how easy is Outlands now that we can fly from the start!
I also ran Helffire Ramparts through LFG. A good run again, people seem to be well geared or Blizzard has done some adjustments (I think they have but I can’t remember exactly the patch notes). Mabango was topping the DPS charts for a change, as she should as she’s a three style DPS class unlike Mabaho (especially Mabaho) and Dasal who can be DPS/Heal classes.
So the terrible memories of Mabaho’s excursion can be put quietly into the back room as Mabango is doing well. She’s now resting up in Thrallmar for next time.
