I finally got a chance to run Serpentshrine Cavern for the first time and I was glad for that. It had two of three possible T5 drops I was looking for and ending up getting both of them. Next week on throwback night we are going to run Tempest Keep. I had gotten one of the T5 tokens last time I ran it so only need one more from there. Maybe I will get lucky with that. Once I get that one and the one from the cavern that did not drop this run I will have all five of the T5 pieces.
You might ask why I want the T5 set. If you are a hunter you might know, if you ever looked into serious soloing then you sure know why I want it. Just check out the Pet Healing from the two piece bonus. That is 15% of all the damage I do that heals my pet. That is insane. Now think of it in terms of the damage I can put out now based on the damage things used to hit for back then. If I can keep up a solid flow of damage while my turtle holds aggrro I can effectively heal it through anything old school. I am loving it for my soloing.
I want to get all 5 pieces of the T5 set even if I do not need more then two and there is a very solid reason for that. I never know what my gear will look like and which two pieces I should use. At the moment with all T10 (and crafted legs) it is not much of an issue which 2 I put on when I go soloing. However, when the time comes where I get some marks and upgrade a few of the pieces I will pick and choose which two T5s I will be using. Having all 5 of them gives me options. I like options.
A friend of mine said that my bad luck is over being I got the two T5 tokens. I told him, it does not count being they were given to me. If I had to roll for them I probably would have either lost, or wasted my good roll I had been saving up.
Now I am thinking of looking around for some more classic hunter loot. Must have hunter loot. For use or just to have. I have the bow, quiver and the 3 pieces of T5 so far. So what is next?
