I was working on Netherwing rep yesterday and was on my way out of the mines when a Ret Paladin jumped me. Now normally, I can put a pretty good dent in a plate wearing class, but generally after about 30 seconds I’m toast. You see, until Tuesday, all I had to heal myself mid-fight was lifeblood (herbalist perk) and a Potion. Now I’ve got Recuperate, and while about 1k health every 3 seconds isn’t a ton, it’s enough that I was able to fight the Paladin for 2 minutes.
There were several opportunities for me to tuck and run, but I stuck with it. In the end though, he never bubbled and beat me with 10k health left. While I’m not too happy about that, I’m pretty stoked to be able to fight one on one with a Paladin for as long as I did. Playing on a PvP server, I might be fun to go looking for some opportunities to “test” how I fare against other classes as well.
