I’ve been pretty lucky with the Raid Finder. 2 Pieces of Raid Finder Tier – and luckily the most important two, the helm, and Mantle. ( the looks, gotta have the looks) I mogged a robe to try to match the colour schemes of the neck piece and I came pretty close using the Spirit Mend Robe.
Tonight, just after reset I scored the Raid Finder Seal of the Seven Signs +406 intell and 2573 Haste proc – which isn’t a bad for new loot.
I went on public record ( on Facebook to my friends) to say that I didn’t like the new Tier when it was first announced. I can’t deny it looks pretty cool with it’s harlequin eyes. However I cannot get away from thinking I look like a chess piece. I could be a Bishop or the Queen, ( there is spikey crown) and I don’t look very happy, and nor do I feel very wow priest like. But it’s certainly very different and well designed.
I’ve been running LFR ( and doing pretty well ) and all the new twilight dungeons as a healer. I was disc and then I went holy, as our Arena’s 3’s team has been split over realms and we haven’t quite decided who is changing to what toon where, I haven’t needed my Disc Spec and have found holy healing in Raids much easier. I can only liken it to the difference in shooting a gun on my hunter and shooting a bow. The bow is smoother, it flows, it has a soft twang, the Gun is very violent and forceful, I find holy healing like shooting the bow, it flows better I fill up your health bar, instead of slapping a bandage over the wound to prevent extra damage while other people fill the health bar up.
In other news. I now have 2 85 hunters. My Dwarf I’ve had for a little while, but with the 4.3 changes, funnily enough my newest 85 ( my BE Hunter Desdemonia) is now my 2nd best geared 85. She had a bit of unexpected funding help from a reader a little while back ( thanks Glenn if your still reading) which came in handy with the chanting and gemming of the new gear.
I had been avoiding raiding and even doing instances before 4.3 on my hunter(s). So I had a little tweaking to do. ( like remember to remove cower, and to not use Kill command ) Because I had some other hunters in raid to compare to – look at what they were doing I made some changes and am pretty happy with my dps in LFR now
I had a warrior ask me for my tier token when the helm dropped. I stuck around for the next boss, unlike some people who win a tier token and leave group, and when he asked ” Did I mind if he grabbed that helm” I said “Yes” it was going to be my two set and that was pretty much the conversation. I think he was the tank, but he couldn’t even use the excuse that I was scrub and didn’t deserve it because I was doing good dps, as in – in the main pack, pretty high on the list. ( though there does seem to be a bias between those who perform badly in LFR and lady luck -or it can seem that way sometimes)
It was ballsy of him to ask, but I was going to take lady lucks boon, and run it ( or run away with it)
Yes LFR is charity, but I have experience, I have loot, I see bad’s and afker’s getting kicked, so the self-regulation seems to be working ok, and I have not seen one person unfairly booted. ( so far)
