Start of Aoe Farming

I'm guessing that mainly because of the short notice of last night's raid, we didn't have enough to go in and take on Kael. We were short a few healers, and I didn't really feel like pugging them, so we had a group head off to ZA while I went and did more achievement exploring. I ended up in EPL hanging out with Kurt (who's a minor celebrity on our realm forums, but I'm sure he doesn't know me). Then since I was there decided that I should go do some Necrotic Rune collecting.

Now, in case you hadn't heard or I neglected to mention it, Leiandra is now full frost. That's right, all 61 points dumped into the frost tree. I'm enjoying the spec. I'll probably use it to level, but just not 100% sure after that. (It's kind of important to the point of my story.)

After putzing around and capturing the towers in EPL, the attack there was over, so I headed down to the Burning Steppes. I started Frostbolting the undead and 1-by-1 killing them off. Then I remembered what spec I now am. I'm the king of Aoe farming spec. There is none that can kill more faster than a frost mage. I'm sure the other people around hated me for doing it, but here's some of the things that I did to get 22 Necrotic Runes in a very short amount of time. (I'm not saying this is the best way to do it, it's just what seemed to work for me.)
Damage. Control. Survivability. Yeah... why wouldn't you Aoe kill melee mobs?

I miss frost. They killed it in TBC.

"I'm the king of Aoe farming spec"

I would say Protection Paladins have a good claim on that particular throne.

Yeah, well... TBC killed you too, dadguy. I've seen you've been online. Why don't you be online when I am so we can hang out?

@honors code - Okay, I actually wasn't thinking about Protection Paladins when I wrote that, but I'm not sure if that's true. The reason being that I think I may be able to kill faster (kill per minute) than a Prot Paly now. I'll have to run some tests. Talek? Let's go compare.
