Spec what..

In the last week  I have played between my two priests

Pvp Disc in, skirmishes,  Arena and BG’s

Pvp Disc Spec for PVE ( heroic dailys/ holiday boss)

Pvp Shadow in Skirmishes and BG’s

PVE Shadow In Raids, Dungeons

PVE Holy in Raids, Dungeons

I not going to lie and say that it wasn’t confusing.

Different abilities,  different keybinds, and spell priorities.  It’s insane.  Would stand in Dalaran casting stuff on myself just to try and get my spells right in my brain for what ever spec I was in. 

Arena hasn’t been going tremendously well.   I spent some time in Skirmishes trying to get better. I think some its me,  some of it’s the comp

I am finding Skirmishing rather addictive too.  Sometimes it’s a lets see how long I can live. Sometimes it’s a lets see how fast you can die.  ( or slow in most cases) but I’m definitely more comfortable in Shadow Skirmishes.  

I did some reading,  changed specs a couple of times, did  skirmishes as disc and Shadow.

I met a random from my server who seemed to be using skirmishes as  a place to recruit people who wanted carrys to 1800.   5k.  I can afford that, and have nothing major I need gold for,  unless I want a vendor mount.  I’ve added him to friends so I can keep track of him, but I’ve not decided if I will yet.  A rating for a weapon would be nice.  When I asked how long it would take, he said depends on how well I listen. So yeah for more learning.  Not sure if it’s worth more or less than 5k – but from a cost point I can afford it, and I’m willing to pay for it, if I decide I want it.

I wonder if it’s a nice money earner for him?

I haven’t quite decided what my stance is on paying for a carry.  I can’t be too  hypocritical, especially since I  made some easy gold last night when we brought a carry in, on a H  Blood Queen kill for a trinket.  It was rather unexpected windfall, and I don’t feel like I earned it.   I would be silly to refuse it,  but I feel like I should do something different with the gold  – like maybe donate it to the stormwind orphans.

But paying someone for instruction, and an achievement that will take me time to get on my own,  I’m thinking that it’s an easy way out.  I would pay 5k for some decent critiquing maybe, but I shall think upon it, and maybe book him in.  A Pvp weapon would be nice,  and I’ve not been able to get once ever since they took  mainhands  from BG honor purchasing out.

    I enjoy arena, but apart from the fact that I am lazy at making gold, I just don’t think I could buy a carry :|. It just wouldn’t feel quite right that I didn’t do the work.

    Which is a real pity. On Frostmourne carrying seems to be the way to go. Between a heavy PVE schedule and trying to find someone who has some PVP gear to PVP with… getting to arena as often as I’d like just doesn’t happen.

          I raid in a fairly cutting edge guild, as such I am often required to play both holy and discipline for raids. I just want trispec for holy/disc/shadow.

          That said, the money isn’t even what bothers me, it’s the god damn glyphs and action bars.
