The patch has really thrown me off kilter. My toons are strangers. I have 5 80′s on 3 different realms, two are priests so it’s was a little easier sorting the 2nd one out, but I am happy with my Shadow and 2 holy specs between them. I reforged 2 pieces on my Shadow Priest, lost some hit for Haste, and I am at 17.8 hit now. I only need 17%
Hunter and Mage I just went duhhhhhhhhhh smacked around a test dummy, and went this is is too complicated.
I use Vuhdu as my Raid Frames, all my healers click to heal, I tend to look at health bars anyway so I have ingeniously set up my mend pet on my hunter as a click on the pet bar raid frame, I will expand on this idea of other things I can stick on there like some more pet commands. I am a bad hunter in that I don’t care about my pet’s health as often as I should. This should make more aware.
Warrior is still sitting there waiting to be logged into. She scares me the most. The tanks I have been healing have lost their smoothness, the confidence, the control – I am sure it will all come back, but I didn’t so much have those qualities before the world got turned upside down. So I am not ready for her again. Yet.
There were so many things missing from my bars. Food, pots, flasks, hearth stone. Like. WHY! * hunts rounds bags to find them all again. I am still missing spaces on all my toons, and I am thinking crap – what am I missing.
I don’t like Bging at this moment. I feel weak, and even wearing 1.2 resil – getting cut down way too quickly. I am dispelling more in BG’s for now, there seems to be more to dispel, and people are dying to easily to dispellable things. I am liking healing holy for now though as I am able to pump out heals pretty quickly, ( as long as I am resilenced up ) mana regen seems ok or maybe I am just dying more before I get OOM.
Yeah for saving 5k on already having 310 flying – I had my Ulduar and ICC drakes on my main,
I am working on getting my 4k justice points, 1k to go and I dragged a poor friend through Heroics last night who was confused why I would be needing so many ‘badges’. I am hoping it will give me some advantage come Cata since they will still be rewarding JP points for the normal 80-85 runs.
It burns. I am hurting. I am tired of my soul being separated from my body after dying from the most stupidest things. I haven’t finished a TOC on Proudmoore yet. ( insert random things pugs do to fail ) I think most issues could have been resolved with better communication and a little more patience. I would rather 2 extra min highlighting important parts of a fight, then a wipe. I don’t care if you have your achievement. It probably means you got it dead on the floor anyway. Though vent as a communication channel in a bad pug is as bad as no vent in a bad pug. Very hard to take a RL in ICC serious when he is stoned. Though he did offer to let me take over RL if I ” kept talking” This was kind of funny because the girl who told the raid that she was ” Blonde – hot – with a great butt” got less attention then me who congratulated someone on getting Trauma. Next time I take it over. I swear if it means we actually get further I will raid lead. No more interjecting with small suggestions like kill the spikes – or waiting for the RL to finish slurring his so-called strat. Lets see who I can pee off by being a pushy bossy chick because at this rate I don’t think I could make it any worse.
I have a baby resto druid I am leveling through LFG. Lobie LFG’s are a bit like a DND dungeon – it doesn’t matter what your role is, if you rolled a higher initiative then the tank you go first. I offered to stop healing a pesky tanking mage – tank said to let him pull, so I worked twice as hard keeping the mage and the tank up. Thankfully the mage had to stop occasionally for mana. Another tank in stockades asked for a little patience because this was new to him. He got it, and he learned from the experience.
A rogue critiqued my healing ” Why did I die” he asked ‘ Maybe it was the 6 mobs you agro’d running ahead.” I said ” Maybe it was cause I got no heals” he said. So I told him ” I can’t heal through stupidit” ” You can’t spell”
/sigh ( I was typing too fast!) It doesn’t matter what you say or even if you are right, it’s how you spell it!
I like my druid. Maybe because she’s a lobie, I get to learn her slowly. I think too much time has passed between playing my mage and hunter regularly, so I don’t know them at all. Losing most of my buttons off my bars didn’t help. Since when do mages have mana gems? ( Jokes. Kinda. I sorta did forget.)
I did a couple of gnomer runs and taught the first group where to jump. 2nd party didn’t need instruction they just did it, and of course, mage and hunter pets were not dismissed and we wiped.
Releasing before combat ends in some instances means for what ever reason, intended or not that you rez at the graveyard with hardly any health. This seems like a lot of potential fun nuisance on a pvp realm.
I might be going holy in Cata. I love shadow, and I will always have an offspec, but I always feel more wanted as holy. I know I should play what I have the most fun playing, but fun is also seeing content, it’s killing things, it’s not dying, and half my problems and stress as a dps disappear when stuff like killing adds is no longer my problem at all, and if the DPS don’t get the healers out of things like spikes then they die, and being just another dps isn’t special. Especially when dps now seems so much more just that they are damage dealers. They just damage with different pictures on different buttons, where as a healer you enable people to do damage no matter what picture is on their buttons.
It’s not as often a healer links their metres to boast. Mostly because less people care about healer epeen, ( though I know healers do also have egos) and stuff like overheals, and dispels can be linked as counterarguments anyway. Everyone else is being distracted by their DPS epeen.
I have been playing Shadow ever since I left my first kara guild, and I learned that the Shadow /Disc spec I was in was bad for my dps, and I upset them by saying – “I’m not spec’d right – I don’t want to be your spirit buff ho anymore” I have casually raided as holy, but I haven’t changed my mains as people do, but I love the priest class. It’s under my skin. Maybe it is time to change to heals.
