My second Priest Ostara hit 80 over the weekend.
Yes I now have two.
Once upon a time, before there were duel specs , there was nasty rumours about people trying to make my main Zah heal. Besides the not wanting to cop the respec costs on a weekly basis, especially since I didn’t have epic flying. I didn’t like healing.
(It turned out.. I just didn’t like healing them.) I rolled a 2nd priest with the idea that if I was being forced to heal, I would say ” Fine – here is a healer.. gear her up if you want me to heal.” Of course that didn’t work out, and she was abandoned at 70 in Wrath.
So because I really like priests She leveled 70-72 in bgs ( before the xp nerf.. ) and most of the rest has been done in Instances – less than a week later since dinging 80, she is now on a Gearscore of around 3600 * considering that my other priest is healing the same instances with a Gearscore of 5300 ish in my healing set, I don’t think she is doing too badly.
Her gear is mostly chanted, and gemmed with at least blue quality gems, 2 pieces of Tier 9 and as much Ilevel 200 gear she can get her hands on. What is mainly failing her is trinkets. Once I get them fixed then she will be uber.
I cashed in all hers and my Hunters Stonekeeper shards earned with the multitudes of instances done lately, and got 40k honor from them, so I bought a Pvp healing ring, more so that it was one piece of gear I wouldn’t have to replace in too much of a hurry, well at least with the gear that’s obtainable so far.
She is however another 80 that won’t raid.
My main went a whole week without a raid, not even an Ony, or a GDKP – I didn’t try – I spent more time standing around then I did playing her when I did log in. I never got to kill putricide, and now a new wing is out, and a little part of me is crying at all this missed content. I was in Naxx 1 hour after hitting 80 on my main, I was in Ulduar on the day it came out, I was in TOC the day it came out. I look upon the ICC instance portal with little pulls on my heartstrings.
*while gearscore doesn’t translate into skill, I find it useful for at least tracking the majority of the quality of gear I am wearing on what ever alt
