serious instance burnout

>.< I went too far on the instance grind - burned out and couldn't face another boss so I decided to take a break and level up herbalism/inscription on one of my shammies named Shoez. I got really sidetracked and 7 days later he's 450 herbalism, 150 fishing, 170 inscription - it's been a lot of fun but after a week of picking flowers it's time to get back to team SPLAT.

Although I must say it has been interesting and while doing inscription you get to make this scroll that transports you back to Dalaran but doesn't work to well if you're over a certain level. Well Shoez is 80 and it's guaranteed not to work properly and I ended up is some parts of Azeroth I've never been to before. I even died once because I was teleported about a 100 feet in the air over the coast of Swamp of Sorrows - lucky for resurrection on Shaman.

Places teleported to so far:
STV twice - on the point in bay of BootyBay
Tarren Mill - in the field near the repair man
Swap of Sorrows - on the coast 100ft in the air
Crossroads twice

Heroic Drak'Tharon Keep

Well I decided after a short break farming HG that I'd go to Drak'Tharon Keep, there's a few nice items in there that I wouldn't mind for my team so off I went! Well, 3 hours, 6 wipes and 240g in repairs later lol I finally did it all.

Here's the team in front of the Prophet, he be dead :)
So! why did it take so long and prove to be so difficult? That second boss Novos the Summoner was a killer, I wiped 3 times because I thought that I could just burn her down. The adds were no issue at all. Finally on the fourth attempt I popped out 4 earth elementals and it was cake. For some reason she couldn't damage them too much and they lasted for ages while the shammies DPS'd her, the pally was just doing her nails and yawning.

The dino boss King Dred caused 3 wipes until I decided to use 3 staggered Tremor Totems for the fears so I had an anti-fear pulse once a second, he went down too easy. Well that was it! The first guy Trollgore was just a T&S where I got some nice boots and the last boss was a joke. All up I really rate this instance and will be back for more punishment.
