Sweet weapon and general maintenance

I realised I had not handed in my Wrathion quest after picking up the Chimera of Fear, so I trundled off to do that and discovered things about our leader I think is awfully sexy :p cage match anyone?? But also, he may not be the best person to lead the Alliance…or is he??  I felt he handled the situation with Garrosh well, but I would have preferred to see him slaughter in that lovely cinematic, but I can’t be mad at Thrall for stopping that…I have a soft spot for him.

WoWScrnShot_010114_125310

The creation of a jewel was pretty cool as well, I loved how he added everything to it…such power!!

WoWScrnShot_010114_125005

I am now up to the quest section that requires me to collect Valor points, so I basically will be spending the next few weeks just doing dailies/dungeons to make it happen.  Hubby needed the LFR as well as he didn’t realise he already had all the sigils he needed  So we jumped back there (we are now up to the same section of the quest!) and I was using my golden coins of fortune to roll for loot….I had more than 20 (I had some boxes in my bags that I couldn’t empty) so even though I was not able to receive loot from the usual method, rolling gave me loot.  Cheating??  maybe?

Anyway I scored weapons..every time…one cloak…but weapons and weapons and more weapons; one of them was this hot as hell dragonesque looking sword!!!  Which I stuck my brand new Sha crystal into from Wrathion…I will never get rid of this sword, and in fact I am thinking I may need to design an outfit to suit it…I love it….I had only just decided to get rid of my offhand and use a staff as well….but the second I saw this…I knew the staff was gone and my umbrella was back , until I find a replacement…must look up offhands that I can purchase with points somewhere…

WoWScrnShot_010114_145501

Also discovered in my travels about the Exalted Tillers daily quests for other factions..oh my awesome!!!  I am doing Shado pan and August Celestials daily at the moment including their quests to help me get there faster.  I am still miles off being revered with either of them, but every little bit helps I am sure. If I can get her to revered and pick up the rep token it will make it much easier on my pally to start doing dailies and earning some rep and money.  I will try and log onto her this week and start getting some funds up…I can’t even afford to run LFD at this stage, no repair money, so I might just go DPS,  grab dailies and go crazy, it doesn’t take much to gather some gold that way.

On a side note, I don’t know what happened on my mage, but I have started to improve my DPS on her…on the LFR we were in I was doing in the realm of 120 – 140k consistently, of course not during the periods of crazy moving etc…I dropped to just above 100k, which I still think is ok.  I did some reading and found out 3 very valuable things…I was casting frostbolt occasionally…which is bad bad bad bad…I was also wasting a glyph spot for that and I was not using Alter Time properly. Now that I have corrected those two minor things it seems to be much better.  I am still not sure how it could change it that much…but I am not going to argue with maths and proof :p

I do need to spend some time with my boomy now that I have changed her stats around and see if it improves me or if i still suck at the gameplay aspect 🙂  It really could just be that I can’t play the spec. Of course I would be devastated, but life isn’t always fair is it? hehehe

 

Remembrall-neville

Dumbest things I have done recently

So returning to a game you love is pretty difficult because it is amazing the amount of information you forget that at one time seemed really important, but that you don’t realise you have forgotten, because like a remembral – you can’t remember what it is your forgot, even if you do know that you have forgotten something.

I have spent the last month trying to find Evocation in my spellbook, because I realised I had a glyph for it, but wasn’t using it. I spend about 15 minutes every night trying to find it thinking I have missed it on each page, I checked my talent trees to see if it something I needed to spec into now, and concluded I was crazy because it was gone.  I finally decided this morning to google it…turns out…I am using rune of power (duh – which I knew) but that is what replaces evocation!  IDIOT!!!  IDIOT!!!!!!

Of course, that is nothing compared to the idiocy of last night.  I discovered noxxic has a list of approx DPS at differing gear levels, which is goddamn fantastic!  I am of course nowhere near for any of my toons – but it certainly gives me something to aim for so I know what I should be doing.  Anyway I found this after some heroics last night in which my boomy could not get above 20k and infact the healer was beating me in kitty form as resto – she is very well geared though at 550 something whereas I am only barely scraping into the 470 area.  However according to noxxic I should be able to hit about 70k dps….LOL…sure thing buddy!!

I decided then to try and find more hit on my gear somehow, after complaining to the hubby about the lack of hit on boomy timeless isle gear and how I had to reforge all the spirit off because it was useless to me, he advised to check out Mr Robot. I was reticent, but did it anyway and it was telling me to reforge back into spirit – enter my tirade about spirit being useless I don’t need mana regen blah blah blah…..yeah…you can all laugh at me now.  Spirit = hit for some classes.  What is worse, after the hubby had finished laughing at me I remembered the hundreds of disputes I had seen in LFD because DPSers had taken gear with spirit (boomies and SP’s mainly – I am sure there was another class as well – I want to say shammies??).  How could I forget something so instrumental to the classes?

I guess this is the joy of coming back to a game 12 months later, you do forget things and need to spend time re-learning.  I know I am still trying to learn how to play again, I am better on my mage because I have played her for so long, but with other toons I am really struggling to get into the swing of it.  Heroics are also very hard as most of the time I am running with people who are very well geared and hitting the 180k+ DPS mark, which means mobs die faster than I can cast a spell – on both my mage and my boomy.  It makes it hard to see where I am sitting in reality and harder to judge what I need to improve.

I know on my mage in LFR I can sometimes be in the top 10 for damage and hitting just over 100k DPS, but according to noxxic I should be hitting 250k + dps…as a frost mage at my gear level and that is not maximum – that is realistic….no way!?!?!?!?  I have to spend some time on a dummy and test out wtf I am doing wrong as I am missing out on a lot of dps.  I need to examine combat logs of mages and see what they are doing that I am not.    Anyway, I am sure, like the previous things, there is something I have forgotten to do….I just have to find out what that is!!!

 

 

PumbaaScreams

Looking for Garrosh

One thing I have noticed since roaming around Ogrimmar is the amount of thugs now harassing the poor little people.  I dislike Garrosh who really does like him? I can’t wait to lay some smackdown on him, so of course that requires I do some LFR!!!

Hubby and I signed up for it and copped a really bad run, so we decided to wait until our best friends were online and we conned them into taking us on a run, they are on a different server in a raiding guild doing really well, but we have always done 5 mans together and had fun just running around when we can.  It is a lot of fun when we get the chance to just play together, this was no different.

We got both parts 2 and 3 done the other night with little issues…I didn’t really enjoy the first fight as you get off the boats – it was a little long and a little bland, but perhaps it would be better in the tower team?  maybe next time.  I loved the the other fights, they were all pretty fun and completely insane, fights I really enjoy as you should.  The Dark Shaman fight is fantastic and I can’t wait to do that again – so many spell affects and things to avoid…

Gates of nazgrim

Malkorok was one of those fights that I just did not understand, I stayed alive though and mostly followed the crowd, but I just didn’t understand what happening, going to try and read about that one some more and see if I can’t understand it a little better for next time.  The boxes boss was pretty fun as well, something slightly different but still challenging and of of course, who doesn’t love being chased by a T-rex

trex

I also had scenes from the lion king flashing in my mind of Pumbaa being chased by Nala screaming “She’s going to eat me!!”  That’s healthy fear right there!!!

PumbaaScreams

Last part to go now, not sure when I will get it done but I am looking forward to it.  From the description of the fight I may live to eat my words, but you know it’s LFR…how bad can it be??  RIGHT!?!?

Catch up….long post

ok, so I started blogging and then have been so addicted to the game I have done nothing but play.  So, this post will be an attempt at a full update which I can then proceed to update normally after 🙂 There is a lot in here, so bear with  me and enjoy the amount of stuff one person can get up to in just over a month.

Starting with my druid is now 90!!!  Woot 🙂  I love my boomy, as my old readers would know, I have however, never been able to play boomy – even after reading, testing and practising.  I love the spec…I just suck, but that should never stop you from playing – just don’t do it when it matters :p

WoWScrnShot_122013_164422

My priest is now 81 – slowly getting her up, hubby and I are levelling together with his rogue.  I am enjoying playing a SP, but I do forget I have a heal button which can sometimes be very useful.  I haven’t had a change to get much past 81 as we have been busy doing dailies on our mains. I wish you got an achievement banner at every level, it would look so much better than 80!

WoWScrnShot_121313_200952

Of course this leads to achievement chasing with so many different quest areas and achievements associated with them.  All of these have been done with just me as a frost mage and hubby on his SP so I think we are pretty awesome for having completed so many – and some were quite challenging in lower end gear.  There was the rares on thunder isle and the rares for each type of race which were the most difficult as clothies…but only a couple took multiple attempts and that was more because of added mob respawns.

WoWScrnShot_121913_121336

 

WoWScrnShot_121913_085522

As part of the dailies you can do achievements without even realizing what you need to actually do to defeat them 🙂  I did mention to hubby that perhaps we needed to kill the bloods?

WoWScrnShot_121913_101229

You also discover achievements that should be done because they are fun and nerve wracking at the same time – yes, 90 seconds on those pillars doesn’t seem long, until you are trying not to fall off!

WoWScrnShot_121813_221608

Or achievements you have no idea how you actually got….Hubby had gotten this a couple of days ago, so I had made a concerted effort to focus…but I swear – I don’t remember throwing any fire down, I was studiously laying down the oil first…I am certainly not going to say no to this though!!

WoWScrnShot_122013_094908

 

I have done most of the LFR’s at this point, but missed a couple of screenies as I didn’t have my addon running, but I only have SoO to go now!!  Even thought it took us about 8 attempts to finally get a Pinnacle of Storms LFR!!  And the second half of Mogu Shan I finally got done as well!  Woot Woot!  Some of the boss fights are fantastic…completely fantastic, others a little bland in LFR, but for the moment I am content with being in a raid again.

WoWScrnShot_121913_141134

Vale of eternal Sorrows (which I have been calling Shadows – fail reading there on my part, no wonder no one knows wtf I am talking about)

WoWScrnShot_121913_133541

Phew!!  There are going to be a couple more posts but for the moment I think I have bored you all enough!!  Such a good time in game since I have been back. Really has been so much fun!

kill all the things

Kill ALL THE THINGS!!!

I cannot stress how much fun I have been having in LFR!!

In the last few days I have done even more of them and I still have more to go.  I was hoping to get to through all of them before reset this week, but couldn’t quite manage it.  I admit to being chuffed everytime I finished one a new one would open.

But in all the fights I have done I have only died once due to my own stupidity.  I think that proves that a small amount of input and understanding of what you are supposed to be doing can help you immensely.  LFR may not be the full blown version but it does show that you can be prepared to do your job well and avoid what needs to be avoided.  I ran without mods except for recount just to see where I was sitting, so no omen and no deadly etc, just watching my surroundings and I confess to feeling so good about using my brain and my head to watch for things.

I enjoyed it anyway 🙂  Others will surely disagree.

flesh shaping halls - 6th

forgotten depths - 6th

The one fight that killed me was the boss who summons the purple cloud of death? I was doing ok until that happened and i was down faster than…well faster than someone getting paid to…!!! The raid wiped and we went again and i survived until the second one happened, but since most of the raid had died in the first one, i was happy to have survived. I died with about 5 other people with me. I am feeling no shame about that death!

I didn’t have a clue on the hydra boss, the strat said something about using ice to kill fire but i never got a buff or debuff…so i just followed the crowd when the head died. I felt a bit ‘meh’ about that one.

I cant remember the other ones at the moment – thats terrible!!! But overall i was happy with the fights and was loving being back with other people killing stuff!

Hubby is really close to levelling so we can start doing crazy isle together!! Woot woot!!

I spent a little bit if time getting my druid to 88, and so will be getting her to 90 next – deciding is she should stay horde or not.

LFR!!! Lookey lookey!!!

o.O shinies!! So many shinies!!!  LFR!!  ooooooooohhhh…was sooo nommy ommy!!

power in the verse

Well not that I actually received much actual loot from the LFR’s I did…but that is not the point!!  I went in and I kicked some big baddy butt 🙂 I think I got one piece of useful/upgradeable gear – that Timeless Isle stuff is the shizz and a few sigils for the Black Prince quest.

I queued for two hours for the second half of Mogushan vaults and gave up after 2 hours, but I queued up for whichever ones would let me in whilst waiting.  So I managed to do the first half of Mogu’shan and then the Dread Approach.

Dread approach - 4th

I had done MV before I stopped playing, but it was nice to re-do something I had already done, just to get my feet wet again.

The dread approach was fantastic – I loved the Blade Lord fight and spent the entire fight getting stuck in whirlwinds, so matter how hard I tried.  By the time I actually got through to one end, I hit Ice Lance and the boss was dead..go me!!!  Adding to the team effort there!!  I feel bad for my little ice dude having to run back and forth so much though.
Garalon was ok, a little messy and hard to get done as I was struggling with actually finding the legs…i will need to research a little more because it seems as though he doesn’t always have an attackable leg…all good though – I stayed away from him and survived!

I was reading the LFR strats on tentonhammer whilst doing the trash and their guides are brilliant!!  So quick and easy to read whilst on the go.  Those guides were the only reason I managed to survive every fight because I at least knew what to look out for.

Shame about the second half of MV, but I will get there one day!  My DPS overall was pretty up and down – I was really spiky and given I have only been back a week and am still trying to remember where all my spells are (let’s not tell you that it took me almost 15 minutes to find my portalling spells in my book….) – I think I will ultimately be fine.

Loving it so far!!

MoP Stuff

I hit 90 on my mage last week and have been just trying to get my gearscore up.

I am playing arcane at the moment as it appears to be the only spec I can get more than 15k out of…which is weird given I have seen myself shoot upwards of 80k as arcane…I can’t even understand why I suck so much in the other specs.

We are still recruiting 2 DPS for the guild for our core raid team, which sucks, I had hoped we would be able to nab people whilst leveling and during this preparation period.  We really are just wanting some solid players who can avoid the bad stuff and be part of the team – no idea why that is so hard!

We have only about 4 other people at level 90 and a couple more almost there..they took their time and I am itching to get back into raiding.  We were hoping to head in tonight, but since we are so short on people, it may have to wait until next Wednesday at this stage.  Fingers crossed we can get some of us into LFR tonight as a finger dipping exercise.

Not much to report really, hubby has gotten his monk to 86 since release, a few more days and he will be 90 and able to get some heroics under his belt.  YIPPEE!!

I am doing my dailies as often as I can, and I am close to getting my cloud serpent – I even found 4 eggs on my first day hunting and have not seen any since 🙂 LOL beginner’s luck ran out on me I think 😦

I am loving pandaland though, aside from leveling cooking and the Klaxxis 🙂

I healed…yeah…me…healing!!?!?!?

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 🙂

LFR should come with a warning

I jumped online last night to run an LFR with a twitter friend @mementh.  He finally got this legendary daggers – GRATS!!  and I wanted to see his wings 🙂

So we did the second half of LFR with some friends of his and generally it went ok.  Had some issues on Spine – I think the tank was new perhaps – he was just kiting the mob around everywhere – it was painful.

We wiped, but not after a load of abuse by a lot of people 🙂 Poor guy should really read up about what he is going to attempt before walking in and thinking 24 people are not going to have a go at you for fucking it all up.

Whilst waiting for him to be ready, I remembered that there should be a pending realid request if I was any sort of lucky!  THERE WAS!!!  EEP!

Anyway I was far too excited to actually have another blogger added to my realid list, I feel so special that people even want to talk to me at all.  I am sure they have many people waffling on to them all the time though,  fielding like 300 whispers is probably not easy anyway.

I didn’t really do much else, it was late when I got home and then after cooking dinner etc, I really was just exhausted.  But overall I had an absolutely fantastic night.

 

Purple Nurples and other addictions :D

Sorry for all the transmog posts lately….I blame JD 🙂  Yes yes!!

Tonight, I transmogged another olympic outfit…the Javelin, but whilst trolling around transmog sites and gear, I found the set I wanted for my warrior….the Revenant set!  All purple and  I chased down some quests which rewarded the items and I have to farm two bosses for my shoulders (Omor in Hellfire ramparts – who didn’t give it up tonight) and Kael in MgT – who I have to kill but can’t be bothered doing right now!  Thanks to McT for all the help he gave me and fantastic mogging talk 🙂

Of course my only issue is a mace now..all the ones I like are from heroic ICC or FL…so I have to lower my preferences 🙂  heheh  But i am calling him the purple nurple!!!

Onto other things, I took my Druid into LFR to heal…and I sucked…I really just don’t get druid healing…although I have only done it a couple of times so perhaps I am being too harsh on myself.  I may just give up on the healing.

My rogue is now level 20 and has riding skills 🙂  This makes me happy as running around it just killing my will to live.  I am not sure how far she will go, but anything is possible.

Hubby got his druid to 84 this morning, and we are currently on our pally/shammy combo trying to get them to 85 as they are fully rested now.  Funny tangent, we had them in a guild which no one ever spoke in – over 400 members and I think I had seen people speak in guild chat once…when I joined about 6 months ago.  So we left that guild today because we just got sick of the silence even when trying to get a conversation started.  About 1.5 minutes after leaving the guild, we get a guild invite to the same guild!!! A generic whisper saying our guild is looking for members, join us type thing, so we both messaged back something much less polite than “we just left your crap guild”.  I did giggle.

We are considering moving the 2 of them over to Dath to be with the frosties…not that we have discussed raiding at all, however hubby did mention that 2 raiding resto druids may not work so he needs another toon option (resto druid because I waffle about Navimie too much I think)….I find this interesting for 2 reasons :

1 – I may be able to convince him to raid if the team is not as unco as he currently experiences.

2 – I have not mentioned raiding at all except that they progressed well and seem to be quite competant.

I felt a little twinge of excitement when he said that because it gave me some hope. I may be able to raid with him horde side again…somewhere!! I had a happy!

My mage is feeling very unloved at the moment, and I do feel bad for her. I might try and do an olympic transmog for her now and see if I can’t give her some loving.

LFR lols old post I forgot to publish :)

Every week without fail I run LFR on my Druid for the VP and gear. I despise it, but until I get to 385 Ilevel I can’t really get into a PUG!

Today had me amazed though. We wiped on Ultraxion trash, then we wiped on Ultraxion because apparently only 3 people were doing above 20k DPS. If you switched it to current fight though, there was 8 people doing 20k. It never helps when people start fights early though, half the raid was at the wrong end of the platform and so it was all a mess anyway to start with.

Anyway, when we got back in and re-did, loot drops and then everyone was needing on everything, so then huge arguments started about people taking loot when they didn’t need it, someone had a 403 chest and they took the LFR token.

What amuses me, is that people complain bout the DPS, yet it is almost impossible to get gear to improve their DPS. Anyway we then wiped on warmaster and I decided to leave.

I jumped into another LFR, I came into a wipefest and got worried, but we killed warmaster and then more crying about loot, we killed spine easily enough and then wiped 4 times on madness because people kept starting before we had a full group. On the fifth start- we had three healers and they started it. I dropped and decided to give up on LFR for the week, I got most of it done and I don’t need a weapon, the extra VP would have been nice though.

I am moderately geared on my druid, and I can’t really do much better DPS than what I am doing. So I am trying to get my VP up so I can buy more gear, but I would really like one more their piece for the four set bonus. Hopefully next week 🙂

I do giggle every time people whine about loot whores, there is nothing you can do, and I do wonder how the new changes are going to alter the aggression in MoP.

LFR is my future

So after another Morning of looking up guilds I am giving up – officially. I can’t continue looking for a guild when I am just setting myself up for disappointment.

I am pretty much just going to stick with my current guild but as a non raider and just do LFR on the toons I want to, likely my Druid, Mage and probably Monk.

It is not an easy decision because I do love raiding, but perhaps once MoP comes out there will be more opportunities, but at the moment everyone is quiet about recruitment or raiding too many hours. I can’t start at 6pm and I can’t finish much later than 10.30 and even that is pushing it.

LFR I can do whenever I want and there is no real stress tied to it.

I need to keep telling myself that I will be content with LFR and that it won’t be depressing….but I know deep down I will always want the thrill of being in a 25 man raid working with others and killing bosses.

All things come to those who wait they say, but my blog is going to be less about raiding now and more about levelling, toons and achievements in all likelihood, unless something pops up by chance.

So, here is to new adventures and new toons 🙂

Still on Spine

We are so close on Spine it is not funny. Last night we just cocked up every single attempt with something silly and it just caused a night of annoyance really.

The best we got was to the last tendon with about 20% left, but then we got overrun with bloods as the amalgamation was blowing up for what would have been our 1st kill.

Long boring brain dump 😀 Feel free to skip the rest!  I won’t be offended.

Long, Strange, Trip

Finally!!!

 

I got me a Violet Drake!

I only had one more day to get it and I did not want to miss out this year 🙂  I always fail because of the PVP achievements you need for Children’s week, not being a big PVPer, I have no res gear and no PVP skills 🙂  I was getting really annoyed after constant failure that I was crying in guild chat.  A guildie offered to help me out and as you can see from the above – we were successful!

4/4 matches as well, got to every single one of them.  WSG was a worry as not one horde person came to get our flag until about 1 minute left on the game so we smashed him and got my last one.  I also got the damage control achievement in AB for doing 300k damage in one match.  I never thought I would see that achievement, so I was a little chuffed with myself – seriously, I normally spend an entire game dead or ressing – so to get any damage was pretty impressive for me!

The Violet put me at 99 mounts, so I logged off to check the armoury and see what I was missing for the last one to get to 100, and discovered that I hadn’t bought all the nether wing drakes, I was missing two of them 🙂  So Bam!  Another achievement today as well 🙂  4 new mounts in total, and a new title and lots of achievements!  Was so much fun.

I then decided to take my poor unloved druid to LFR and won a necklace on her- YAY, and I also discovered that I bought a wrong tier piece as the 2 set bonus isn’t working because I have one boomy and one resto piece – yes I feel like a right royal twat and am so embarrassed about it 🙂  So I have to fix that ASAP!!  My poor baby girl.

 

 

Shared Topic: Knowledge Killing

Logtar has suggested another deep thinking topic:

The last couple of years in WoW have changed the game quite a bit. While it is very easy to jump into the “elite” vs “casual” vs “noob” bandwagon type of discussion, what is causing it I think is a more interesting topic.

Do you guys think that the LFR and LFD kill the sense of community, but taking it one step further; does it also kill the passing down of knowledge?

I know I did learn a lot from reading the web, but even now I get tons of information from my guild. If I have a doubt, I ask the question and most of the time someone knows off the top of their head where an enchant is, or what the best glyph is, etc. I don’t take that community for granted, but it was built before there was a LFD. We are together because we did have to take the trek to the meeting stone. Now we have a button that 1 person uses and BAM we are all there. We know why that is cool, but many of the new players really don’t know what that really means.

So are the new tools for grouping killing the knowledge sharing?

I think this is an interesting concept but only because I started the game when we had very little information available to us to work with. Not that I want to belittle the stuff people are doing know, but we didn’t have the huge amount of resources for strats, gear, rotations and general information.

We used Thottbot and Alkhazam because they were the most up to date and had the most information, and we learnt by trial and error and of course – the longer you play the more information and sites you discover along the journey.

I don’t know LFD or LFR etc are killing the passing down of knowledge, but I think they are killing the sense of community – only because people seem absolutely incapable of being nice or just shutting up. It’s a hard question to answer simply because we have nothing to compare it to. In 40 man days for example, my first raid I didn’t read anything about the bosses – or watch videos – I don’t really remember there being anything to read or watch. I knew the fight from having it explained to me.

Improvement is in the eye of the beholder!

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 🙂

Copped a serve this morning….

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….

I did score new wrists though 🙂

 

Upgrade!

I finally did a completely painless LFR yesterday !!!!!

Pleasant surprise!

I scored a chest tier token and then discovered that I had enough vp with that and my heroic runs to get another upgrade so I grabbed the ring. I will have to wait until next Tuesday now to run it all again but I am happy it has boosted my ilevel to 382 now I think.

So a couple more weeks in heroics and LFR and I should be good.

I am tempted to start running my pally through LFR but in all honesty I am just too chicken.

We are on guild break until the 9th so that is why I have been playing SWTOR and just vegging out.

I also got my archy maxed today finally!!!!!! So I am going to do my best to discover the damn raptor mount and pet and the vial of sands!!! One day 🙂
