And we’re back for the culmination of the three-part series. After a full trouncing of five of the eight bosses by the end of Episode 1.2, The B Team has its heart set on ruining Twilight Lord Kelris’ meditation and proceeding to the “hidden” boss of Blackfathom Deeps, Aku’mai. No amount of platforming hopping, swimming or water breathing will hold this crew back.
Death, well, that’s a different story. But a break for a crab dinner may be in order as we discuss who the hell the hot naga is that Kelris is communing with.
The second part of any three-part series is sluggish. Viewers have already been introduced to the characters and everyone knows there’s another installment coming, so nothing is going to be finalized. To keep the audience captive, creators enjoy wrapping character development in a neat sandwich of action. Consumers have their experience of Part 2 bookended with memorable pieces, while they subconsciously absorb a deeper understanding for the hero/heroine in the “boring part.”
In a nutshell (too many food analogies?), that’s exactly the experience that Episode 1.2 of Blackfathom Deeps will deliver. You’ll be engrossed by the excellent use of Life Tap and bemused by the shamans ability to never run out of mana while barely healing. All while listening to the tank tell every mob what it can and cannot do during pulls.
The B Team couldn’t stand NKOTBSB getting all the attention, so we got back together during the holiday break to rid the world of more evil. Mordil, pixiestixy and iTZKooPA teamed up with two pugs (who had no idea what they were getting in to) to tackle Blackfathom Deeps. It just so happens that BFD has the honors of popping iTZKooPA’s instance cherry.
Let’s see how much he, and the rest of the crew, enjoys it the second time around. Or just watch as Ghamoo-Ra, every hunters favorite tanking pet, out does the group’s “tank.”
