I have been healing on my pally. To be honest, it was mostly PVP, but then I have no idea why I decided to heal some heroics.
Proof I was healing! See the little plus sign!
Pain and suffering. We wiped on a couple of bosses, mainly because I was an idiot, like the eye balls – I got stunned and died. Then on Jaina when we had an extra pack and then on Murozond…he was horribly hard.
I think we wiped about 4 times over 3 instances, so considering it was my first time not too bad?
I was having massive massive mana issues, once I get that sorted out it may be ok.
I then decided (insanely) to do an LFR as healer, with my Frosties. It was a horrific LFR, we wiped on trash and Morchok because of an idiot, but it went smoothly after that once we booted them out. I healed, badly, but I healed.
Overall I was most impressed that I was actually healing the twilight heroics. I didn’t think I could do it. I really didn’t. I guess the week of PVP healing really does help
I have been wanting to get the last couple of my mount achievements done on my mage for quite some time, however very rarely do I actually see an ICC run going ahead.
Last night though, we picked up a couple of friends and trundled off to ICC for some mount hunting!
We did it all in heroic bar the lich king himself, and only because our tank and healer had never been to ICC and I think it is a confusing fight when trying to explain it. We have to go back in again next week for at least 3 guildies to get the rest of their achievements as they were unable to join us last night and to get turned by evil blood sucking vampires :) We may try him on heroic then given they now know it and can understand it.
I was pretty shocked when I died because I did not realise how quickly we would be killing him, the fight seemed (in my memory) to take much longer…clearly at level it did!! eheeh
But it was well worth it for my precious!! I think I took about 20 pictures at every angle! I really want the 25 man version as well and was advised that I am not allowed to organise that ICC run on Wednesday nights..LOL…but I blame certain circumstances like a re-interest in raiding for certain people who shall remain nameless – which I have no control over :p *cough* *cough*
I hoping to get ICC10 done quicker next week because we all remember it now, I would like to get Ulduar done on the same night – get that mount out of the way, although I have only done it on 25 man and that was AGES ago! It might be a struggle.
Happy night though!! Next week more people will have awesome mounts that are across all their toons!! WOOT WOOT!
We also did a PVP match after the raid and I healed on my pally again – I actually didn’t do too badly this time because I had a few minutes to set up my grid…LOL bad mistake though. Somehow I managed to make out of range toons completely disappear off my grid, which is kind of awesome for PVP because I am not even looking at them then, but it makes it hard to tell what is going on, so I have to fix that tonight before we do more
So, we are doing some more PVP lately in a group of about 5 of us, I would love to get 10 together and do some rated bg’s. But honestly I don’t know how it all works and I don’t have enough friends to fill a 10 man team at the same time!
However my mage has just over 1100 resilience now and I have enough points to get my head slot item. I am trying to build my conquest points for the sword I want, but you know…that is a long haul. I don’t know how people do this and nothing but
My reporting and ignoring features have been getting very active in PVP I have to admit, they say some very nasty stuff!!
I am still getting some achievements, by accident, but I certainly don’t mind them popping up
I was in the most awesome EOTS match as well, we capped the flag the entire match. As in, we would drop it, it spawned, we capped. We did it about 13 times or something, it was awesome.
I have been surviving better and actually managing to kill people before they kill me – something unheard of before, however this is the first time I have had more than 2 pieces of PVP gear.
Because the five of us are DPS, i decided to try healing on my pally…bad bad bad bad bad bad mistake. I haven’t tried healing since we transferred, and all my macros were gone, my raid frames were not showing out of range properly and I had no buttons on my bars. It was horrific!!! However, I was enjoying myself immensely – there is a certain satisfaction with running past someone engaged in battle and throwing them some heals so they can kill their opponent. I was going to fix my UI last night – but shutdown was early so that put a crimp in…I will try and do that tonight before ICC
Yup, another grand ole post about my inability to use the soft grey matter embedded in some cavity on the top of my body.
I am sooo close on my three toons to getting a mount each from the darkmoon faire, my mage being only 9 tickets off now, my druid is about 15 off and my pally about 60 off (so admittedly not that close).
However, I did all my darkmoon faire stuff on my three toons when it came out so I could bump them up another notch. Then realised the next day, stupidly…that the dailies award a prize ticket as well….DUH!!! Really?!!? I have spent months just doing the main quests and never going back for the dailies and wondering why I was so far behind on the pets and mounts…..but somewhere in my head I knew they gave tickets…i just…forgot it temporarily?
What I find so funny though, is my fantastic plan to actually level my druid professions to the magical 75 mark for fishing, cooking and first aid so i could do the profession quests…after how many months of the DMF?? She was the only toon I didn’t have them even started on. I do, however, refuse to do archaeology on any other toons…it was hard enough on my mage!!
So after feeling like a complete nuffy for a) not utilizing the professions quests, I was b) not even doing the dailies for 7 days to get the most tokens…I am now – hopefully on track for getting my mounts and pets next month on my toons.
So, one of our best geared players has decided to no longer raid due to loot issues. This person just happened to be our MT.
I had hoped the GM would talk to him and perhaps convince him to come back, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, so last night I was advised I was going to be tanking. I have spoken a few times about changing my main to my tank, however I didn’t really want to do it this late in an expansion when my gear is sorely lacking behind the others.
I know – everyone is saying it – we are apparently getting to the end of an expansion…I say apparently as I don’t have a release date for MoP yet – do you??!@?! And if it is released in November – is that close? Nope, is that end worthy?!!? I don’t think so.
Why is it so hard for 10 people to be online at the same time so we can raid?!
This post is a little ranty – feel free to skip over it
Ultraxion trash….just thinking of it brings tears to my eyes. I didn’t mind the old trash, I swear it was fine!!
This new style has the guild bested. I suspect the tanks inability to actually hit the mobs makes it harder than it needs to be; but I kid you not, tonight was the first time we have actually gotten past it after less than an entire night wiping first.
The rub being it resets Tuesday night and we have to do it all again Are any other guilds finding this trash is actually easier; and are your tanks having trouble hitting the dragons?
However aside from all that – I TANKED ULTRAXION – yes yes and not in LFR either I was a little excited about it
I also did a couple of heroics on my Druid and….I can now do LFR I will possibly get booted for crap dps, but I can certainly have fun trying. I really enjoy playing boomy – almost as much as I enjoy my mage. That’s a bold statement if I say so myself!!!
Too much excitement for one obsessed person to handle
I decided to jump into LFR this morning on my pally as a healer…I have been gearing up her off spec as heals and was dragged into a heroic the other night (shadowfang) – that was my second time healing anything. So LFR was my third time. My level as heals is not enough to get into, but because I have all my tanking gear which isn’t too bad – it bumped me up enough.
I will in future not cheat using that kind of methodology. There was one person in the LFR just giving me shite for having such low his – from memory – approx 8k his….according to this wonderful priest he used to get more in bWD….and as i said to him – congratulations, I am so proud that he was such a great player.
He not only brought it up constantly, but got worse each time we killed a boss and then when i won some gear – OMG he went public with it , which – I am glad to report most everyone told him to stfu. The responses he got were varied about taking lfr to seriously, that I just sucked and to deal with it that perhaps my gear wasn’t good….it’s no wonder players who are nervous about jumping into raiding don’t come back if they are not sure what they are doing – after that guys tirade, it is no wonder you lose your confidence – and yes I now he is just one wanker in a sea of thousands….but I just wish some people would take 5 minutes to remember that some people behind the avatars are new to the classes they are playing and not old pro’s. There was a pally healer in there doing huge healing…I was in awe….and he just kept saying that no one had died so who cared…I like that theory
So here is the rub, it was my third time healing anything with lower gear than what I should have been in – but…how in gods name do you get any heals off in LFR….I had huge over healing – almost 15% most of the time. I am thinking my haste is just too low and my cast times too long, in the end I was just throwing everything i could and still failing at any good healing. BUt some of the time I just stood there doing nothing because none needed healing…felt a little useless really….
