Dynamic Duo!

I got that achievement last night.

That means I have two level 90s of two different classes.

Now before you get all up in my junk about what the hell was I doing leveling another character before I got all my reps complete etc; let me tell you that it was for a good reason!

I wanted to fly and herb at the same time >.>

I told you it was a good reason!

Just kidding. :D

PPP was leveled to 90 so we would have an extra healer should we need one.  So far it hasn’t been the case since Zari and Bocat so graciously stepped up to the plate to be the flex healers.  Now I honestly don’t know how much play time she will actually have in end game because outside of Lyssi, we don’t have a brez.  Also, the raiders apparently really love my cookies.

Who knew?

This post is mostly because Navi has nagged at me for not posting more.  She scolded me and told me that I was a very lazy blogger.

Now when Navi scolds you you best get off your duff! ;-)

Love you Navi!

In all honesty I really needed to post more.  As I have mentioned in the past I just don’t have the time during the day that I used to have.  The only reason I am writing this now is because my boss is out of the office on vacation and no one has come over to bug me for something this morning.  Have I mentioned how I run the office here?  Yeah I don’t think I did.  On top of being my boss’ assistant I also have his other assistant as MY assistant AND I have to act as the assistant for the Jr. partner.  So I have two people coming to me with tasks that I either do myself or assign to my assistant.  This is on top of all the “emergency” fires that are created because my boss has to do everything as soon as he hears about it regardless of what is going on or what needs done.  But hey, it is a job that pays well and I am appreciated so it works out.

In the game front I’ve been busy busy busy.  After many painful wipes (seriously, painful) we FINALLY got the first boss down.  I am proud to say that I was not the cause for any of the wipes, save one and that one wasn’t REALLY my fault, I just added to it because I am a tard.  We had like 3 people dead but for some reason I thought there were 5 people dead so I just assumed it was a wipe and ran into some bad and just stayed there until I died.  Slice then looks at me and was all “Did you seriously just go stand in bad and die?!?!?”  That was when I realized that I had looked at the screen wrong and we in fact were NOT wiping.  Turns out that was our best attempt prior to killing the boss.

Yeah fayle lock!

Speaking of Fayle, his newest thing, which Adoe has picked up on, is that I cannot read because I am a warlock.  Forget everything else, I cannot read because I am a warlock.

He isn’t even a mage!

Stupid stinky rogues & hunters.

I dunno maybe it is justified.  I did pull a complete fayle too.

I have always been an affliction warlock.

I have always aimed for haste, crit then mastery.

I play destro now.

Destro is Mastery, crit then haste.

I was um, gearing wrong.

I was also enchanting, gemming and reforging wrong.

It gets better.

I was not only using the wrong pet BUT I was also using the wrong grimoire!  20% vs 25%, yeah, no brainer >.<

Prior to my realizing I was fayling I was doing about 30k, which was pretty bad.  I was the lowest dps in the pack.  Upon realizing my fayle I fixed things and jumped up to about 47k and moved into 3rd – 4th place which is where I usually reside since Fayle, Zug and Adoe rule supreme in damage dealing.  Now I just need to work out my rotation a bit more.  I keep wanting to save my embers, which from everything I read I am not supposed to.  From what I understand I should be popping a CB every time I have an ember.  I will admit I haven’t gotten into the hang of that.  I am getting better though! :D

The other part that is funny is not actually raiding with a pet.  I am so used to having a pet out that using Grimoire of Sacrifice is odd.  I will say that I love the control demon ability part.  It puts the special ability of your demon as a spell for you.  During the Dog fight I would sac my voidwalker because then I get his ability to increase my health.  For non warlocks: Frenzied Enrage.  It is on a pretty short cooldown so that was nice to have!

Speaking of cooldowns, I took Mortal Coil as my talent and let me tell you it has been a LIFE SAVER during raids.  I hit that sucker and I get about 62k health back.  The best part is it is on a 45 second cooldown.  My healthstone is a 90 second cooldown.  I would pop a blue trap then hit my MC button and BOOM! full health!

Oh and remember to place your portal.  It has helped get me out of the bad on the floor more times than I can count.  It will also break the root that the blue traps leave on the ground.

So yeah, things are starting to move along in game.  I think once we get the rust off we will beat out the scrubs on our server that think they are hot shit.  I understand they beat Heroic DS and we didn’t.  But they also beat it at the 30% buff and we quit raiding.  When the top guilds on the server leave or stop raiding the scrub guilds try to fill the void.  To be honest I think some of them are even pugging a few spots.  I know one of the guilds tried to get Slice to come heal a raid for them.  We’ll see how things go and if our guildies pull their heads out of pet battles. ;-)

So there is my update for a while.  Hopefully this tides Navi over for a little bit. :D

Rambly post is Rambly

I keep meaning to write a new post but I just have been slammed at work.  It is funny because I am really not all that busy at home, but I just cannot write there.  Maybe it is the desk situation.  Not sure.

Now that I have internet access at work again I have gotten caught up on almost all the blogs I read.  I know that I missed a bunch (google reader only holds the last 30 days worth of posts) left over from when I first moved but I am not really all that worried.

I’ve toyed with doing the whole 20 days of posting or the then and now posts, but ultimately I think I am just a bit too lazy.  I wanted to chime in about the bitchiness of people causing problems in the blog-o-sphere, but since I don’t particularly like that person it would be very one sided and probably get me blackballed (like I’m not already at this point) so I guess I can keep my mouth shut.

Yes it is possible!  Bite me!

I’ve been lucky with my first midwest winter.  I think we had a total of a week of snow for the entire winter.  I think the longest stretch the snow lasted was 2 days.  I keep joking that this is just Ohio messing with me.  Luring me into a false sense of security with this “mild” winter weather and making me think this is how winter is.  Just so it can laugh at me when the next winter is nothing but blizzards and ice storms.  I know how things operate!

My new job is going splendidly for those of you who are curious.  I am awesome, as per usual (I tell my boss this every day btw) and rocking the place.  Other than the older lady (who is a bigger bitch than I could EVER be) everyone here is pretty awesome.  I do feel short though.  My boss and the Jr. partner are both well over 6 feet tall.  The other office guy (who is my age) is like 3 or 4 inches taller than me too.  Even bitchy old bitch is almost 6 feet tall.  I’m 5’5″ 1/2 and I feel like a midget!  Totally not cool.

I had intended to start working on my dorf warlock over in Crits N Giggles, but Slice decided to quit his Mass Effect 3 addiction and start playing TOR instead.  We have our Sith Inquisitors that we are leveling together that we hadn’t been playing because he never wanted to log in to level.  He would log in to run flashpoints with the boys or to level another alt, but he didn’t want to level our toons.  Me, on the other hand, only wanted to level my inquisitor, not any of my alts.  So it was kind of a catch-22 for us.

Luckily Adoe had told me about the Hunger Games trilogy and I started reading it.  ZOMG I loved those books.  I can’t want for the movie (opens 03/23).  Slice even said the movie looked cool.  As with all book to movie translations, I know it won’t be as good, but frankly I don’t care.  The world was so rich and enthralling so even having a little bit of it available to view is pretty awesome.  If you haven’t read the books, seriously give them a look.  Just make sure you have all three with you because the author likes to end the first two books as cliffhangers.  Thank goodness for my kindle!

When I first starting playing TOR I created an evil pureblood warrior.  Sorak kept picking on me and saying that I wouldn’t ever get her to 50 because she is melee and I “hate” melee.  This is completely discounting my DK and rogue that I have leveled.  Yeah I “hate” melee Sorak.  /sigh  In any case I got her to 23 before Slice and I started on our inquisitors.  Since then she kind of sat there because I fell in love with my force lightning weilding sweetheart (did I mention that she is lightside?).  Slice still says that I am kind of a bitch in game.  Hey man, the way I roll is all snark and mean comments then light side option!  All the while grumbling that I couldn’t pick the dark side choice.  I will admit to picking some dark side options.  Usually to kill an NPC that I couldn’t stand.  At that point I didn’t care if I got dark side points, that bitch was dying!  I got laughed at for that too.

Anyway, Slice was needed to run flashpoints with the guys so I dusted off my warrior again.  I was determined to get her a speeder because the quality of life increase is AMAZING.  This meant I had to level her to 25 AND make sure I had the credits.  It costs 48k to get the training and the mount.  Now I had the credits originally before I picked up the inquisitor.  I was saving them for the warrior’s mount.  Then when the inquisitor hit 25 I sent the money to her.  This left me kind of broke on the warrior.  I’ve been making my money in that game by selling greens/blues I find while questing and doing slicing jobs on my warrior.  Unfortunately when I stopped playing my warrior, I stopped doing crew jobs more than once a day (if that) add to that the slow funneling of credits to my inquisitor, and I was broke.  I think I went from like 60k credits (which isn’t really a lot, but a decent amount for a lower level toon) to about 20k.  Training right now costs me around 2.3k an ability.

So off I went to level and get money.  The funny thing is I started having fun.  I had switched out my dps companion for the healer and my downtime dropped off.  Now I was able to go from mob to mob without worrying that I was going to die.  Even if I get low I pop a healing stim and keep going.  He eventually will get me healed up.  Plus he is pretty good looking so I am enjoying getting affection points with him.  Although it is really funny to see him get all awkward when I flirt with him.  Fun times!

I did manage to get the warrior to 25.  I had just enough credits to get her the mount and the training.  I ended the night with about 500 credits.  Luckily I had sold something  when I logged back last night to be able to afford sending the crew out.  Right now I am hoping one of the mission quests I have on the AH will sell so I can finish buying my training skills.  I am still waiting for the quests to start giving me more credits.  I don’t think my inquisitor is getting all that much from them either.  She is 37 and has to save up for the next training skill and mount that comes at 40.  I think the mount is 25k but I am not sure on the training price.  I do know she is sitting at just under 50k, but her training skills are about 13-14k each.  At one point I had to borrow some credits from Slice in order to get the new ability when I leveled.  Yeah it was kind of sad.

All in all I think things are going well.  I’m back to having fun online.  For a while I was seriously burned out.  I didn’t even want to be on my computer.  It was a struggle just to log in to raid on Tues & Wednesday.  It makes me glad that I am enjoying playing again, at least in one of my games.  I haven’t found it back in WoW yet.  Maybe when beta for MoP starts I will find the fun again.  It isn’t even the lack of friends playing because I would go off and play alone lots of times.  It is just the feeling of doing something I have done hundreds of times before and just being tired of it.  TOR is a nice change.  Something new for now.  I am sure that once I go through all the planets for the third time I will be feeling the same thing.  For now though, I am going to just sit back and enjoy the new ride.

We should be driving through Missouri at this point in time.  We’ll be home tomorrow night! :D

I have to do all the things!

Much love to Hyperbole and a Half for the awesomesause phrase stealing I did.  Is it really stealing when you give them credit afterwards?

Eh who knows!

ANYWAY!

I have sooooooooooooo much personal stuff going on (that I can’t talk about just yet, and if you know please don’t bring it up in the comments) and add to that my normal game time stuff equals one stressed warlock.  My biggest thing right now is just getting everything organized so that I can get it done in the correct amount of time.

Plus I am very lazy, like seriously lazy.

Trust me, it’s bad.

Take Monday night (yesterday).  Every other Monday (or so it is supposed to be) is the alt T11 run.  We try to get people in who don’t normally raid with us and the main raiders bring their alts who need gear.  As I mentioned before, it is supposed to happen every OTHER Monday but it has happened the last 3 Mondays.  We can blame Arv for that one.  He set one up last week for his buddy who just joined us.  This means that if I join in on the alt run then I have 3 days in a row where I can’t get anything done at home.  With all the new stuff piled on my plate I just cannot raid on Monday anymore.  Normally this isn’t an issue because we will usually have enough people.  Unfortunately Slice likes to bring me instead of asking other guildies who didn’t sign up.  One day he will understand that I am not like him and don’t like to raid 24/7.

Some days I almost feel like I want to sit out on our normal Tuesday/Wednesday runs but then I remember about my awesome staff of awesomeness and how I wants it precious!  So I suck it up and come raid.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE raiding with my guildies.  We always have such fun and it is worth it to come raid.

Unless I don’t eat before/during the raid, then I am a HORRIBLE MEAN BITCH who HATES EVERYONE and all that jazz.

It apparently got bad enough that Sorak even now reminds me to eat something before the raid. :D

Yes he really is a sweetheart, when he isn’t being a brat.

Things are really looking good for SR right now.  We are 6/7 in Firelands and should be able to get Rag down soon.  As of this afternoon I am 22/25 embers for the first quest chain.  We have been EXTREMELY lucky with our ember drops.  I think we have only had 1 or 2 bosses who didn’t drop an ember for me.  I haven’t really done a whole lot of research into the quest chain because I kind of want to be surprised about what happens.  I know that Slice has read up on it and he tells me that I have at least 2 more long collection quests.  I know that we will be doing this for a while so I am not super worried.  At the worst I will finish up the staff in an alt run when we are on the next tier, but finish it I will!

Slice was asking me the other day if I have found a fight in Firelands that I don’t like.  Honestly I like all of them.  Rhyolith might be a big pain in the ass (at least until they nerfed him to hell and back) but I still liked the fight.  As of right now (since we haven’t seen all of Rag) Alysrazor is my favorite fight.  I love all aspects of it.  I’ve flown and I’ve been on ground duty.  Yes it seems like a crazy fight, but it really isn’t tough at all if you just look at it piece by piece.  I think my favorite part about it is being able to cast and run at the same time.  I love not losing my shadow bolt casts when I have to move for a brushfire.  Being useful with interrupts with my puppy is pretty awesome too.  On those few times when I get to fly (Zuggie usually is flying because he is a fire mage)  I get SUPER excited when I get the crit buff from the 25 ring hit.  It lets me know that I am being good with hitting rings.  This fight has so many little things that make me happy so I just can’t pick one.

What I can’t seem to understand is why all the stuff I need drops off Domo and Rag.  It almost feels like half my BiS stuff only drops off those two guys.  Since we are such a pally/priest heavy raid I will be the last person to see my 4 piece T12.  Which isn’t that bad when you realize I am getting the awesome staff of awesomeness but by the time I get the staff, T12 will be almost done.  Oh well.  It does drive me nuts when other people are always bitching that they get that particular token to drop every time and no one can use it anymore.  It is like rubbing salt in the wound!

Funny thing happened in gchat last night.  They were running the T11 alt run (which I skipped) and apparently Atramedes dropped the shoulders.  Now in case you aren’t aware, Lyssi’s last blue item was her shoulders.  I was raiding and downing bosses in Firelands with 346 shoulders because no cloth ones dropped and anytime the token dropped off Cho’gall it was given to someone else.  The worst time was when it was given to someone who ALREADY HAD purple shoulders.  I was so mad that night.  Anyway I digress.  It was last week I think that Rhyolith dropped the mage clone shoulders.  Zuggie wasn’t there so I was able to snag them!  Apparently Sorak wasn’t paying attention that night because he had Grom link the shoulders that Atramedes dropped to taunt me.  The joke’s on you Sorak!  I laughed and congratulated Grom then linked my 378 shoulders in gchat for Sorak to see when he couldn’t understand why I wasn’t upset.  Good times!

I take back what I said above about him being a sweetheart.

Last weekend I rocked out on my mage, this weekend I was hooked on my baby lock.  Not much has really changed from where I left her off last, at least playstyle/spec-wise, but I was really hooked on leveling her.  The purpose of her leveling has been to experience the new leveling experience in the old world.  I went through the new plaguelands, the revamped Badlands (I got to punch Deathwing in the FACE!) and then this weekend the Swamp of Sorrows and half of the Blasted Lands.  I had done the other half of the Blasted Lands quests on PPP so I don’t think they are that much different for Alliance.  I will probably finish them out on the baby lock anyway.  The baby murlocs are just too cute not to.

I have already started thinking about the next toon that I want to level.  I have several ones that are just sitting there with rested XP and yet I have this urge to make a Draenei Paladin.  I had one that I loved over on Skywall and she doesn’t look like she will be dusted off ever again.  I also want to make a Worgen.  I’m not sure what kind of Worgen, but I need one.  So yeah, too many alts and not enough time!

I need a vacation so I can just play WoW for a week.

Yeah like that’ll happen >.<

Failmage returns!

Ahhhhhh, the glorious return of failmage!  Sometimes you just forget how much fun you can have blowing things up with fire. :D

 

My poor failmage got moved from Bloodhoof over to Skywall when Slice transferred his priest to play with Choice.  She spent the last months of Wrath farming herbs and making a killing on the markets on Skywall.  She did so well that I was able to get Slice a chopper for his birthday.  Times were good.

 

After Slice left Skywall and went back to Drak I stopped logging into failmage.  With no one playing on Skywall anymore there just wasn’t a reason to check on her.  I got caught up in the new and improved SR and just left her to rot.

 

Fast forward to this weekend.

 

Slice originally moved his mage over to Winterhoof to play with Rep’s Alliance guild; Sorak also followed and brought his rogue over.  Both of them are now raiding regularly with Crits.  I made a dorf lock and had been regularly leveling her to eventually be a back up raider for them.  I wasn’t in any rush though.  I love raiding, but I don’t know how well I would do with 4-5 nights of raiding a week.  Sometimes 2 nights is too much.  The lock was more just to be helpful than anything else.

I was leveling the baby lock on Friday night (punching Deathwing in the FACE!) and something got me thinking about failmage.  I’m not sure what it was but I started thinking that I should transfer her over to Winterhoof because nothing was ever going to happen on Skywall (despite our guild there) and if I was going to see the Alliance version of the new Cata zones any time soon it would probably end up being on Winterhoof.  I still have Millea over on Bloodhoof but I don’t really want to move her.  She is still a member of Echo of Fate and I kind of like knowing that I still have one toon left in that guild.

Since I was getting paid after midnight I had to wait until Saturday to set up the transfer.  I logged over to failmage and OMG all the crap she had in her bags.  She had tons of Wrath-era food (mostly fish) and other type stuff.  Like her bags were full of Wrath crap.  Not even stuff that could be sold for leveling.  Funny thing though, she has over 1800 JP left over from the end of Wrath.  This is, of course, awesome.  I cleaned up all of her crap, mailed off a bunch to my bank toon on Skywall and made the transfer.

 

I get to Winterhoof and Rep whispers me on Real ID “WTF 80 mage?” and promptly invites me to the guild.  Slice isn’t online yet so he has no idea what I’ve done.  Sorak is online but he decided to ignore me.  It isn’t like he isn’t on Real ID or anything, but I digress.  I usually start out in Hyjal then go to Vashj’ir afterwards.  I decided to start her out differently and send her straight to Vash.

Ok!  No problem!  I was in IF (I preferred it to SW prior to Cata) so I mount up on my mount (wondering the entire time why my bronze drake is greyed out) and hit the space bar to move up.

WTF?

/sigh

She didn’t have old world flying.

To make matters worse she had to get it in SW.

Good thing she is a mage huh?

I ported over to SW and had to run (*cries*) all the way over from the mage tower to the flying trainer.  Stupid SW and the stupid canals.  I finally get my flying trained and life is good!

I had yet to see SW as Alliance since Cata dropped.  It is actually really cool looking from the air.  Org was completely rebuilt so it was set up with flying around as the norm.  SW wasn’t.  You really feel like you are doing something special when you fly over it.  A part of me still can’t get over the fact that I can fly over the entire town and I don’t have to run through all the stupid canals and arches.  I have to catch myself when I start running on the ground.  It doesn’t help that my mount of choice is the Headless Horseman’s mount.

I was good and did remember to train my professions.  Found out that I was not maxed in first aid.  So I bought a bunch of Frostweave (man that stuff is expensive) and quickly leveled it to Cata levels.  I listed most of my Wrath stuff in the hopes of selling some of it (borean leather scraps sold, wtf?) and making back some monies.  I was sitting at under 100g after doing all of my training (and buying stupid expensive Frostweave) so I wanted to get back to a comfortable level.  I knew that questing would net me some good money so I headed out.

The intro to Vashj for the Alliance is quite different from the Horde version.  The little snippets of conversation from the NPCs is really neat.  You really get an idea of what their stance is.  One of the things I enjoy about playing both sides is seeing the different verbage on the quests.  It might be the EXACT SAME quest as you get from the other side but the what the quest says is completely different.  I’ve said it, others have said it, and it is still true, you just cannot get the full story without seeing both sides.  So seriously, if you haven’t leveled one faction or the other, do it.  Just to see the other side and understand the whole thing.

Right now the main thing I am looking forward to is the Alliance side of Twilight Highlands.

 

While I am merrily questing away Slice comes online.  I whisper him with “hi” (not on Real ID) and he says hi back.  I can tell he has NO clue who I am.  I give him a few then whisper him “and in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 . . .”  LOL about 2 mins later you can see the lightbulb go off.  I laughed so hard.  He was all “In my defense I haven’t seen this name in a while.”  Excuses, excuses!  By this time I was already 81 and working my way towards 82.

I decided that I was only going to do the quests in Vashj up to unlocking the Earthen Ring Quartermaster then I would head out to Hyjal.  I had already replaced about half of my gear (she was in 4 piece tier 9!) and was already seeing a difference in how things were dying.  Now don’t get me wrong, I had already pulled a few failmage moments.  First was when I started questing in Vashj with my chef’s hat on.  I couldn’t understand why I was dropping in health so quickly and why NOTHING would die.  I just assumed it was because of my fail gear from Wrath.  Nope!  Failmage strikes again!  I honestly didn’t even know until I saw that I had a helmet as a reward and I was mousing over to see the stats.  Yup!  Chef’s hat.

/sigh

 

I already kind of fail because for some unknown reason I default to spamming Pyroblast when I am being hit in the face by a mob.  Yes this is stupid, yes I fail.  Trust me I know.  To this day I have yet to learn the mage class.  It isn’t like I didn’t level her from 1 to 80  in my fire spec (which I totally did) or that the spec changed (not really all that much from what I remembered) I just suck at mage.  The biggest thing that throws me off is Scorch; more specifically being able to move and cast Scorch.  It messes up my groove.  Moving is supposed to STOP my casting of the wrong spell, not ALLOW it to go through.  >.<

No I haven’t accidentally pulled with Scorch when I tried to stop it.  No, not me!

/facepalm

All things considered I really did end up having a blast.  Luckily I had the full rested (2 1/2 levels worth) XP bar and I was able to get to 82 (98% to 83) on Saturday night.  I dinged 83 on Sunday afternoon (when I woke up) and have since moved on to Deepholm.  I haven’t had this much fun leveling in quite some time.  Even with this being my 5th time through the Cata zones, doing it as Alliance has just enough of a change of flavor that I am looking at it with a whole new view.  Good times will be had!

 

As in the past, failmage will NOT be raiding.  I did a random dungeon (I got VP, I am kind of shocked it wasn’t Stonecore) and wasn’t doing too badly.  I wasn’t number 1 by any stretch of the imagination but I held my own.  Especially against that stupid hunter who couldn’t even trap correctly.  BTW when someone is assigning CC targets and says “banish one and freeze another” you DO NOT freeze the banished target.  ESPECIALLY when the targets are marked.  Stupid huntards.

I guess I just got spoiled by all the good hunters in my guild.

 

Anyway, failmage will not be raiding.  She might do some randoms here and there, but probably not.  She will be a farm bot to make me monies.  Without a tailor to feed I can use her transmutes to feed my need for gold.  Once I hit 85 on her I will switch the focus to the baby lock.  I need her inscription skills to pay my bills!

Hmm, looks like I just might be playing Alliance a bit more than planned.

 

Oh!  A funny thing happened on Friday night.  Zerl (whom I also have on Real ID, seriously who don’t I have on there?!) saw that a bunch of us were on Winterhoof and decided to roll a toon to play with us.  He made a baby pally to which Sorak teased him about being pink.  Note that Sorak is playing on a female toon, but I digress.  Apparently he ALSO transferred a toon over to Winterhoof.  I guess he had a level 70 (or 71, can’t remember) rogue on another server collecting dust and decided to bring it over to the Alliance side.  He had been debating on if he should bring it to Drak but ultimately decided on having a higher level alt on Winterhoof.  THEN as he was there on his rogue and I was there on my mage, Tel logs in on his hunter and Zari logs in on his priest.  We were just missing Arv, Zarm and Zug.  It was too funny!

ZOMG she was playing WoW!?!?

I’ve had a crazy last few months.  I have been busy, stressed and just feeling like I was about to burn out.  As I mentioned previously, I hadn’t really been playing much.  I had essentially quit running dungeons.  I wasn’t farming.  I really didn’t do much at all.

That kind of changed up on Sunday.

Saturday one of my friends had a baby shower so I went home to visit and join in on the fun.  The original plan was for me to spend the weekend at my mom’s house.  Well the shower ended at 4 and I just decided that I was going to drive home and relax for the rest of the weekend.  This meant that Sunday would be free to do whatever.

I woke up pretty early on Sunday (7:50 am >.< but I didn’t roll out of bed until 8 am) and just popped down on the computer.  The previous night I had run a few troll dungeons with guildies (I was really close to getting my tier chest) to which they all gave me flack for actually being in a dungeon.  I think both Slice and Sorak whispered me (while in a raid mind you) because they were in shock to see me in ZA.  /sigh  It does happen from time to time boys!

So anyway, I woke up and logged in.  I got my normal stuff out of the way then went to do the JC daily.  Just my luck it was the stupid Elemental Goo.  Normally this isn’t a problem for people, but my DK was only 76 (he dinged 77 that day) and can easily die to the mobs.  Luckily Rep was online and I asked her sweetly to come help me kill stuff.  The daily complete I moved on to the MF dailies.  Lyssi was just missing one Lieutenant and one guy from the bombing run.  So I went through and knocked out the dailies so that I could see if what I needed was there.  The last Lieutenant was up so I knocked out that achievement.  Unfortunately the guy I needed for the bombing run wasn’t up.  So I am one person away from having a snazzy new title!

Afterwards a few other people had come online and I asked if anyone wanted to do a heroic.  I pulled up Lyssi’s dungeon finder just to see that I was 30 points shy of capping.  Wait, what?  Yep.  Apparently killing 5 raid bosses, 1 reg heroic and 2 troll runs had me almost capped out.  That kind of put a dent into my plans.  Oh well no biggie!  I will heal!

I popped over to PPP snagged the 359 healy staff out of the gbank (yay for me!) and snagged Rep on her DK for some regular heroics.  While I know I can heal the troll stuff, I’d rather not so I just did a bunch of regular heroics.  For the rest of the afternoon Rep (sometimes Zari and Doz joined us) and I ran heroics.  We had some good runs and really didn’t have too much of a problem with people.  We got lucky early on and ended up with a tank from one of the top guilds on our server.  Most of the people in his guild are pretty nice and he was a good guy.  We did several dungeons with him and had fun chit chatting.

A few times I just queued up alone, even though there wasn’t a satchel.  One of those runs put me into heroic Vortex.  I was grouped up with 4 people from Cenarion Circle, two were from one guild and the other two were from another guild.  It was kind of funny.  They were a great group.  The tank wasn’t hard to heal and the dps didn’t stand in bad or cause problems.  All in all it was one of the best 5 man PuG runs I had ever had the pleasure to heal.  Thanks guys for making it fun! :)

Speaking of 5 mans.  The other night (I think Thursday night) there was a Call to Arms for healers so I switched over and queued up.  I got Deadmines.  I hate this place.  Not because it is hard but because it is so damn long.  We zone in and there is a male cow pally tank, an undead warlock, a belf hunter and a cow DK.  The tank runs in, gets hit by the cannon in the first doorway and promptly runs around the corner so even if the dps had gotten in the cannon it wouldn’t have done us any good.  No biggie, I kept him alive and barely kept the DK alive.  As we started moving forward the hunter ran off in the other direction and started dying.  Now I wasn’t going to chase him while the tank was in front of me dying to his overpull (he was NOT geared enough to pull the way he was) so he ended up dying.  Before anyone could react he dropped group.  Ok no biggie, we’ll get another dps in quick enough (this should have been a warning).  We get to the first boss and picked up another hunter, this time a troll.  First boss is pulled and no one moves out of the bad.  I have adds all over me and I am apparently the only one who knows you have to keep moving and dodging the bar of fireballs.  Of course the tank couldn’t be bothered to move or pull the adds off me.  I manged to keep everyone alive until the end when I lost the DK, but at that point I was on fumes.  I sat down to drink after the pull and typed in chat “Man you guys take a ton of damage.”  Apparently that was the wrong thing to say because after the loot roll the tank dropped.

/sigh

We all sat around waiting to move into the next room once we got another tank.  A few minutes went by and we get a male belf pally.  He starts clearing trash but no one frees the monkeys and people are taking a TON of damage.  So I quickly do what I can and start freeing the closest monkeys.  Now as anyone who has ever run this dungeon knows, you turn right and proceed that way through the tunnel.  This tank went left, into the dead end portion of the tunnel.  Did you know that at the very end of the tunnel there is an entire room full of those monkeys?  Yep an ENTIRE room.  The moment I saw those monkeys I immediately started freeing them because we would have DIED if I hadn’t.  After the last mob was killed I moved over to the CORRECT tunnel and luckily (for me) the tank followed me and started pulling.  Now you know those guys that throw the axe to the head, well he pulled all 3 at once.  So you can imagine how much FUN that was.  He then ran in and pulled the boss along with the trash (oh joy!).  Again we down the boss and I managed to keep everyone alive except the poor DK (who had died to trash already) and was on fumes AGAIN.  I whispered the poor DK and told him I wasn’t letting him die on purpose.  Found out that the DK was an alt and their main was a healy priest.  Heh.  We then moved into the next room and the tank pulled 2 groups of trash.  Despite my best efforts there was just too much damage.  I lost the tank and the DK.  The warlock and the hunter were able to finish up the trash that was pulled and I rezzed the dead.  We finish clearing the trash and get to the foundry room.  While I am asking if anyone knows how to drive the reaper the tank leaves.

WTF?

So we are again sitting there waiting for another tank.  The DK says that he can try to do it but had never done it.  I explain what he needs to do and eventually we get another tank.  Another male cow pally.  Seriously here?  For a moment I thought it might be the same one we had at first (the names were similar) but it wasn’t.  We re-buff and he starts clearing the trash.  No one gets into the reapers that we defeat. /sigh.  Eventually we start the boss encounter.  The fight is going well until close to the end and I lose the warlock.  He hadn’t moved from the edge of the ledge and had no where to run when the boss did his harvest thingy.  As I was trying to find his body, the tank dropped.

Seriously?!!?!

So again we are waiting for yet ANOTHER tank.  Luckily it wasn’t a very long wait.  The dps and I were joking that we were getting a new tank for every boss.  We finally get another tank and it is a female belf pally.  Oh look guys pally tank #4!!  I piped up in chat “lucky pally #4!”  She goes into the tunnel and starts pulling trash.  She got out of LoS for me and as I was running to find her I got those stupid swirling blades so I was trying to not hit everyone else AND still heal her.  It didn’t go so well and she dies.  Then one by one everyone else dies.  It was our first wipe of the run.  Considering some of the problems we’d been having this was pretty awesome we hadn’t wiped yet.  I run back (the tank and warlock don’t bother to release which I hate) and start rezzing people (mass rez FTW).  Once the tank is rezzed she drops.

>.<

Here we are sooooooooooooo close to finishing this horrid dungeon.  At this point I was NOT dropping.  I was going to get my damn satchel.  The dps weren’t bad, just kind of noobish.  We weren’t doing anything that would have stressed out a tank enough to drop.  So I have NO idea what the problem was.  After what seemed like our longest wait yet, we get our 5th tank, a druid.  Yay! No more pallies!  This guy was fricken awesome!  We started telling him about our pally tank woes and he was laughing up a storm.  I never checked his gear so I’m not sure how well geared he was, but he was by far the easiest of the 5 tanks to heal.  As we are running in to the ship I get a whisper from the hunter that he is going to drop and that it isn’t my fault.  I replied back to him that we were almost done and to just hang in there.  He stuck around and we made our way up to Ripsnarl.  Surprisingly enough that fight went VERY smoothly.  Cookie went over well despite no one but me eating anything.  The gauntlet was started and immediately someone died.  I stayed there and rezzed them.  I think it was the poor DK (I swear that guy’s armor HAD to be close to broken by the end of the run).  We get through the first 2 guys then face the Mario room.

Now anyone who knows me knows that I die to this room almost every single time.  Knowing this I stayed in the back and waited for everyone else to get through.  Sure enough 3 people died right away.  I rezzed them and then started making my way through.  The DK died again as I was running through.  Shockingly enough I made it through alive!  I never even got hit!  I was so proud of myself.  We moved on and started on the rest of the encounter.  Things went VERY smoothly.  Then at the end during Vanessa’s final explosion the poor DK stood next to her still trying to DPS her down and was killed.  We all laughed and looted the bitch.  I whispered the hunter and said “aren’t you glad you stayed?”  He whispered back with a yes and a smiley face.  We all said goodbye and wished each other well.

I opened my satchel on Lyssi (in case there was a pet or mount) just to find out it was a stupid int flask. /sigh

ANYWAY! Back to my original story!

I took a few breaks here and there.  I didn’t cap out PPP but she did all of the regular heroic dungeons that she could for the week.  All she has left are some trolls (which I will only do with guildies) or raiding.  We have a T11 run planned for tonight.  I will bring her in to heal then switch her for Lyssi on Cho’gall.  Lyssi is still rocking blue shoulders!  So I just might end up with 2 VP capped toons in one week.  Crazy talk I say!

When I came back from a small break Slice and Doz were PvPing on their DKs.  I whispered Slice asking if I could join them.  He said sure as soon as the BG was done.  I switched to Lyssi and popped over to her PvP spec and gear.  I made some crafted stuff for her and purchased what I could with the honor and JP I had.  She also had some pants that she won from the TB boss.  So she is rocking the crafted set bonus and the season 9 set bonus.  I think I am at around 1800 resil.  I know that isn’t all that much but it is enough for starting out in BGs.  Most people don’t even bother getting the crafted stuff.

Now Slice has been doing arena with Adoe and Zug and is ALL decked out in gear.  Doz has been grinding BGs on his DK so he is decked out too.  The three of us were in vent and just started chain running BGs.

It was so much fun!

Normally I die in BGs a LOT.  Like seriously a LOT.  It is like people see a warlock and HAVE to go after them.  It almost feels like we are the most hated class in there.  The few times I did arena I was the first killed, every time.  Now I am NOT a good PvPer.  In fact I am pretty bad at it.  So it just astounds me when I am the first to die.  I almost want to tell them that I couldn’t kill them even if I tried.  But oh well.

This time around I actually lived for most of the night.  Even when I was separated from Slice I survived.  The resil I did have was awesome.  I was getting stunned by rogues/warriors/DKs and I lived!  I got out of their stuns, fear bombed them then dotted the fuckers up.  All while running away.  I seriously love soulburn!  I can instantly get my VW out and bubble.  Best thing ever.  I was even doing fairly good on the boards.  I wasn’t capping or anything like that but I was protecting the flag carriers (in those BGs that have them) and defending flags and just generally creating havoc everywhere I went.

It was a blast!

During one WSG we were faced against a team that had 1 healer.  Our flag carrier had no opposition.  It was kind of sad.  Doz and Slice were actually fighting in the middle because that was the only place the other team was actually at.  Most of them were in blue PvE gear.  I think Slice had like 2 guys on him and they couldn’t kill him.  It was kind of funny.  When I got bored of following the flag carrier and doing nothing I joined them in the middle and just started killing people.  A few people tried to kill me but Slice kept me alive.  They didn’t even bother going to him.  Silly people.

Afterwards I jumped on my roguelette and opened up the MF dailies.  There are patterns and gear for her to earn.  I think Rep was shocked I was doing the dailies on another toon.  She said something about how she couldn’t even do them on her Alliance toon.  I dunno, I actually like the MF dailies.  They are quick and easy.  The funny part to me about getting gear for my rogue is I still have no clue how to play her.  If I can’t kill the mob in the first few hits it just becomes a matter of who can survive longer.  Maybe one day I will learn how to play her.

So yeah that was my Sunday.  A few times I was asked what I did with myself and who I was.  It’s cool though.  Gotta keep these boys on their toes.  Can’t have it where I am too predictable. ;-)

What is this? A real post you say! No wai!

Yes I am a complete and utter slacker.  You all knew this so don’t act like you are all that surprised.  Most of my slacking has to do with just not having a whole heck of a lot to write about.  The rest is due to work and personal life stuff that has just been hogging up my writing time.  So while I have a little while to sit here and write before I head home to raid I thought I would catch everyone up!

Warning!  Wall o’ Text crits you for over 9000!

Raiding

I am still raiding on Lyssi (as you probably already guessed from the kill shot posts) and am currently 9/25 embers toward the first part of my legendary staff [edited to reflect the raiding done Tuesday night].  We have been extremely lucky in the ember drops.  We also got 7 of the crafting items to drop.  I know that we are making the BiS tank and healer stuff first.  I managed to snag the recipe for the BiS dps caster boots on the AH for 4700G.  We had the caster spirit gloves recipe drop our first night in the Firelands so I had that one already.  I am just waiting until it is my turn to make gear with the items or when some actually show up on the AH.

So far I am really liking the fights.  Despite the fact that Sorak keeps forgetting to start the parse for Shannox, I know that I end up #1 in damage for each kill.  The multiple targets and the fact that for the most part I get to just sit there and pew pew makes for awesome damage and uptime for me.  For both kills I was over 18k, which for me is just fucking awesome.  Considering we have some amazing dpsers in our raid (I am usually #3 or #4) it makes me just want to strut around.  BUT I can’t even prove my words because someone “forgets” to start the parse for the fight. :(

This is me

On Beth I get to go up top and pew pew the boss.  This got decided because I absolutely suck at killing adds right away.  I guess our melee dps could go up top and I could take his place on the drones, but I don’t have to move all that much up top where they would.  I have worked out the best way for me to maximize my cooldowns (1st time up demon soul, 2nd time potion, 3rd time demon soul, then use my doomguard during lust in phase 3) and have seen a nice jump in my overall damage.  At first I was having a hell of a time getting her even close to 80%, but now I usually have her to at least 80% or better.  I think on one attempt I got her to 76%.  *flex*

On Lord Rhyolith I just feel like I am going nuts.  I have been put on add duty with the hunters and Zuggie.  The only way I have figured out to properly help on the adds is to pop up BoA and Corruption on each of them.  The fight is so hectic for dps (at least for me) that I honestly don’t know if I could manage to do more than that without standing in bad a lot.  Since I like to pride myself on staying out of the bad, this fight just drives me up the wall.  I do my absolute best to remain out of the bad and I just can’t seem to do it.  I like to joke with Slice that the only reason that they keep bringing me to raids is because I know how to stay out of the bad (and trouble) and still put out decent damage.  Of course the real reason is because I am the raid leader’s girlfriend.  Duh :-p  Because we all know that girls can’t play WoW.

Seriously guys, rolling SO hard

Balroc has me as part of crystal duty.  We tried me using my shadow ward and it didn’t absorb shit.  My other option is to blow a Shadowburn: Healthstone.  So instead of trusting me to save myself (I really don’t blame them here) we are just sacrificing Cayle.  It seems to work because we got him down.

<3 ya Sorak!

Slice has recently put an alt run for T11 up on the calendar.  I’ve told him that I would rather sit them out but would go if we didn’t have enough people.  I just don’t really want to raid that many nights.  Two nights is good for me.  More than that and I start to get fed up.  It isn’t that I’m not having fun, because I am, but when I have to raid I can’t do anything else for the night.  Me being on the west coast means I need to drive straight home from work and almost immediately get on the game.  There isn’t any time to unwind from work, no time to cook, etc.  Hell most of the time I have barely any time to check my bank alt for auctions and do my cooldowns.  Forget trying to get my dailies done before the raid.  This means the dailies are done AFTER the raid and thus I am online longer than I’d like.

TL:dr – To much raiding = grumpy Lyssi.

Dailies

I actually enjoy doing dailies.  I usually will do them on multiple characters.  Yes I know I am weird.  It happens.  I have been really lucky in that I haven’t missed a single day of MF dailies.  On the days that I was traveling back from Ohio, Slice was able to jump on and do them for me.  Thanks sweetie! <3  Right now I am working on unlocking the last vendor.  I should have it unlocked in like 2 – 3 days.  Once I finish all that I need for my title on Lyssi I will finish the dailies on PPP.  She is about halfway to unlocking the wardens/druids.  I think I will start out with the druids for her just because there are so many achievements for them vs the wardens.  Personally I prefer the warden dailies.  They go MUCH faster and you don’t have to deal with the stupid fire.  Seriously, who’s idea was it to make you re-do the fire clearing EVERY DAMN DAY!?!?!?  Don’t get me wrong, the spire thing is annoying too, but the fire thing trumps it.

Other than the asshole multiboxer I really enjoy the Molten Front.  I like seeing all of the lore figures coming out to help you kill the elites.  I love how you can run through all the mobs and not aggro them, unless of course you are a warlock with a pet.  Because heaven forbid the warlock gets to run through anywhere unmolested.  Nooooooo I’m not bitter at ALL.  Nope not me!

I am sweet and innocent

Blogging

I really want to get back into the swing of posting, I just have to figure out how to get my groove back.  I miss being able to spend the morning writing a post then enjoying having fun in the comments for the rest of the afternoon.  Right now with the way my work is, I just don’t have the ability to do that anymore.  It has sapped my will to blog and that makes me sad.  As some of you know there are changes coming down the line in my future and I am hoping those changes will be just what the doctor ordered.

I have been doing pretty good with keeping up on my blog reading.  Since I switched to Google Reader I have been able to not fall too far behind.  There are a few blogs that I am way behind on, but those I am saving for a bored day.  I really dislike blogger now.  I can no longer subscribe to comments so I never know when someone replies to my comment I left.  This has stopped me from commenting on blogs that I usually comment on.  So if you have a blog on blogger and are missing my replies or comments, that’s why.

AHing

As you all know, SR is kind of hooked on AHing.  I have my own little niche in the Netherweave bag market.  Most of SR controls the gem markets.  A few of them work the glyph market and enchanting scrolls, but they primarily focus on gems.  This has helped to make me feel safe in my little spot.  Recently there have been players who just do things that make no sense to me.  For example:  I had bags listed at 21g 95s 95c, a player came in and listed a bunch of bags at 14g 95s.  There were no other players listing bags.  Just me at almost 22g.  So explain to me WHY you would undercut by so much?!?!  It isn’t really the undercutting.  Netherweave bags sell so quickly that I am constantly needing to make more, so that isn’t the issue.  There is NO REASON to undercut by that much.  The bags WILL sell.  They usually sell for a hell of a lot more than what I had them listed at.  I personally like to keep the market around 24-26g.  I was listing them at 22g to move them and clear up some room in my bank for cloth.  (BTW I seriously had to buy another guild bank tab JUST for bolts of Netherweave).  I would think it was a personal attack at my listings (it is a vicious AH market Hordeside on Drak) but I have seen posts by this seller in markets I’m not in doing the same thing.  I had an extra gem that I cut so I went to sell it.  The SR gang had the gem selling for 147g.  This seller posted theirs at 34g.   The funniest part is the gem never sold because it got undercut so much.  There were at least 20 more listings AFTER the 34g listing.  I can understand undercutting to get rid of your product, but this kind of playing is just dumb.

I found another niche for my roguelette and I am trying to keep that one under wraps just because it is soooooooo profitable at this time.  I had tried this route before but picked up some competition that ended up scaring away all the buyers.  Waiting worked out in my favor though.  He is no longer around to undercut me and I have been able to raise the price by 100g.  I’ve toyed with the idea of raising the price some more, but frankly I don’t want to mess with success.  I can sell 2-3 a night depending on how often I check my character.  Business is booming. :D

Money, money, money!

Alts

I haven’t been feeling the alt-o-holic mode lately.  The funny thing is the only class I wanted to level was another Disc priest though the dungeon finder.  Why I do these things to myself I will never know.  This time around things aren’t as bad as they were for PPP.  My baby cow has had a bit more luck.  It is nice having a 2nd account to make alts on without having to move to a different server or delete one of my own.  On the other hand, if my brother ever does decide to come back to the game, I will have to say goodbye to my lovely little cow.  At least I know she will be in good hands.

Yay for holy cows!

WoW Overall

Honestly, I am starting to feel the burn.  It hasn’t gotten to where I no longer want to play, I just find myself not wanting to do more than the minimum.  This means I log in each day to check my auctions, do my cooldowns, JC daily and MF dailies on Lyssi.  I might stick around if guild chat is particularly popping, but I usually just afk out.  If it is a raid night then the only difference is I am raiding for 3 1/2 hours instead of afking out.  I don’t enjoy running dungeons so I am never VP capped.  I know that drives Sorak nuts, and probably Slice as well.  I really don’t care at this point.  I really am only enjoying a few things in the game and that is all I want to do.  I am hoping that once the rest of my life settles down that I will be able to start enjoying my free time in the game.  I have several alts that I want to get leveled that I just can’t make myself play.  Yes Ana the dorf lock is one of them.  Oh well, things will either pick up or I will crash and burn.  I really don’t foresee the crashing and burning so much.  I am still having fun.  Once the fun stops, that is when the burning will begin.  I think we are safe for now.

MUAH!

Healing meme Take 2!

Well the the healing meme is going around again and I got tagged twice.  As some of you might remember, I filled this out in the original call for it.  Although I am no longer primarily healing (I get to pew pew bitches!) I still heal from time to time.

Now I am going to preface this by saying that I don’t heal much at all so a lot of my answers really won’t have long replies.
 

1. What is the name, class, and spec of your primary healer?

Naedaessa aka PPP.  She is a Disc priest.  Although I think she is in her shadow off-spec for dailies currently.  I used to heal with Tattia (Tatia the nelf in the original survey) but I found that I just don’t enjoy my druid the way I enjoy my priest and I switched over as soon as I could.

2. What is your primary group healing environment? (i.e. raids, pvp, 5 mans)

PPP primarily does 5 mans or our 10 man alt runs.

3. What is your favorite healing spell for your class and why?

Penance bitches!  Lazer lights up your butt!  I love to see the ticks crit for 20k a pop.  It makes me giggle and smile.

4. What healing spell do you use least for your class and why?

Well this particular answer isn’t so much because I don’t like the spells, it is just because I FORGET I have the spells and thus forget to use them.  >.<  I am BAD at priesting here people.

So let’s go down the list!

Renew – too expensive and doesn’t heal enough to warrant the spending of mana;  Prayer of Healing – I forget I can hit Inner Focus and use this every time IF is off cooldown;  Lifegrip – Forget I have it until someone else grabs me thus pissing me off that I have been grabbed;  Divine Hymn – Forget I have it until Slice calls for it;  Hymn of Hope – Forget I have it unless it is asked for;  Some others I forget to use:  Pain Suppression, Power Infusion, Binding Heal.

I told you I was a bad priest!

5. What do you feel is the biggest strength of your healing class and why?

We are fantastic single target healers and are very flexible with healing roles.  This is especially helpful in 10 man raiding.  We can do it all bitches!

6. What do you feel is the biggest weakness of your healing class and why?

AoE heals.  I can single target heal a person up very well, but when you bring in more than 2 people I start gasping for mana and die in the vapors of my mana pool.

8. What healing class do you enjoy healing with most and why?

Well I have only healed with a pally and a druid.  So I really can’t answer this well.  I just don’t have any experience with other healing classes (or enough in this case) to really know what I like and I don’t like.

9. What healing class do you enjoy healing with least and why?

See above.

10. What is your worst habit as a healer?

See #4.  BAD PRIEST!

11. What is your biggest pet peeve in a group environment while healing?

People telling me how to heal if they place that class (I’m looking at you Slice! *glares*).  If I am doing something wrong and people are dying, then yes by all means step in and fix the situation.  If people are living and I am not OOM then STFU.  I play my priest a bit different than most (all you have to do is see my spec to see this) but I get the job done.  I am sure if I had more practice healing in raids (soooooo not happening) then things would probably change, but until then STFU!

12. Do you feel that your class/spec is well balanced with other healers for PvE healing?

I think that Disc is ideal for playing with others.  We can even play nicely with another Disc priest.  Everyone loves us and our Power Word: Nipple.

13. What tools do you use to evaluate your own performance as a healer?

Did Slice lecture me?  Did people die?  Am I OOM in the beginning of the fight?

14. What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about your healing class?

That you cannot bubble spam and have mana (I can and do!) and that Heal sucks.  I LOVE Heal.  I think I am the only priest out there that does.

15. What do you feel is the most difficult thing for new healers of your class to learn?

EVERY FUCKING SPELL A PRIEST HAS.  Seriously though, we have SO MANY spells that if you learned to play a priest like I did (LFD with bubble/Penance/Renew/Flash Heal as my only used spells) then you might have some issues.  I know that I had to actually keybind OTHER spells when I started healing 5 mans in Cata.

16. If someone were to try to evaluate your performance as a healer via recount, what sort of patterns would they see (i.e. lots of overhealing, low healing output, etc)?

Honestly I couldn’t tell you.  I haven’t really researched my healing on recount/WoL.  Most of the time when I am playing PPP she is healing a 5 man and that really isn’t much to look at for comparison.

17. Haste or Crit and why?

LOL I wish I could answer this one.  When I get a new piece of gear I ask Slice what I should do with it.  So see his answer.  Now with my druid I knew I wanted Haste, but I just have no clue with the priest.

18. What healing class do you feel you understand least?

It is a toss up between a Holy Pally and a Holy Priest.  I have played a lower level Shaman so I have some idea (not a lot but SOME) of what you need to do but I haven’t ever played a heally Pally, nor have I played Holy.  My very first priest (a space goat named Lyssiana of all things) was Holy but she only made it to like level 30 before I switched back to the lock.  This was also way back in BC era so things are different now.

19. What add-ons or macros do you use, if any, to aid you in healing?

Vuhdo through and through.  I use the mouse click options for my spells.  Macros hate me so I only have 2.  One that announces that I am OOM and another that I spam when I am getting hit that says “I am being HIT!”  I love to spam that one. :D

I use Power Auras when I dps but I haven’t set up any for my healing.  I probably should, but I am very lazy so it probably won’t happen any time soon.

Let’s see, whom do I want to tag on this . . . I want to see if I can get the other healers in SR to do a guest post and answer these questions.  So I will tag Sorak, Zarm and Zerl’s Pally Lery.  Of course all of them are in their DPS specs.  /Sigh.

PPP makes such a pretty princess ;-)
