Greetings all. No I haven't returned to WoW. Just thought I'd write something and see how things are for everyone. Hows Pandaria? TV ads look pretty awesome. My wife isn't ready to lose her husband to warcrack again so for now I'll just gaze longingly at the software boxes as I pass the store window. I do periodically check all of the old blogs I used to check regularly and am pleased to see many people that I came to know are still blogging. I have no idea what else I would blog about so I guess I'll just be content lurking! Adios people and Happy New Year!
So I finally dinged the other day. I was a little concerned about viability in lvl 85 bg's but I am pleasantly surprised. I've done a handful of BG's. I only have a few pieces of crafted PVP gear but I managed to get away relatively unscathed and for the most part in the top 3-5 in damage. Even got a number two in SOTA. Of course that was probably because I actually attacked the tanks as one should. But hey, having fun. Anybody else spriesting in BG's?
So go ahead and accuse me of not reading patch notes. It's true, I don't. I'll figure it out as I go (thottbot, google, wowhead, etc.).But did something happen to spriests? I have always enjoyed battleground healing with my resto sham and Izabella took up well over 50% of my BG time. Other than that, warrior and DK never really caught my imagination. Enjoyed bg'ing with the hunter. Enjoyed bg'ing with the priest as disc. I tried spriesting in bg's a couple times in WOTLK but got sick of being thrashed. In fact, questing felt like running around completing tasks hoping I wouldn't get ganked. Gank a spriest anyone. Good times! Well, while leveling in Uldum (lvl 83 at the time), an 83 DK attempted to gank me. I did the usual, popped my shield, screamed, dotted him up, hit a mind blast and followed with mind flay and watched his health plummet.....what? The DK was dying! He was well below 15% health and he started to run. So what did I do? Followed him...mind spiked him twice and he was dead. Just like that. Did he suck? Maybe, but so do I. So I decided to sign up for a BG. And you know what happened? It was awesome. I was dealing death like Thanatos himself. DOT's here, mind spikes there, here a scream, there a horror....close to top in damage at the end. My god....are spriests viable in BG's?!?! For me anyway....yes. I have been having a blast in BG's with my spriest! Kicking butt pretty well I might add. So were spriests great for BG's before? DId I just suck and now doing it right? Or have spriests been fixed and they're now BG powerhouses?
Is it my imagination or is "chain heal" the only healing spell that literally draws a line straight back to the healer so that enemy players can easily find them? Now don't get me wrong. I love my shammy. Hell, its hilarious to be able to hold off/occupy 2-3 enemy players because they just can't kill you! But, I'd really appreciate if one of my greatest battlefield spells wasn't a huge, brightly colored beam emanating from my fingertips and ricocheting all over the creation. Hell, I might as well have a sign glued to my helmet that says "target me!". Just sayin'...
Wow...it's only been a little over a month since my last post?! What a slacker! Anywho....I haven't upgraded to Cataclysm yet, so what's the use of posting anything anyway? When you have a newborn added to the mix it really puts a damper on your available time! Everyone enjoying the new crap so far? Hope so. I'll likely upgrade after the holidays when things aren't quite so manic. Happy Holidays to all my fellow Hordies and even a slight holiday nod to you alliance girls. Hope you all enjoy these days that go by much too fast. Be safe. Be healthy. Kill gnomes. Not necessarily in that order.
I understand that it's all part of the lead-up to cataclysm...got it. But, it's really a pain in the ass when I log onto my level 40 druid banker at Thunder Bluff and I can't do anything because everyone is trapped in little cyclones and these damn air elementals one shot me and there's not a thing I can do about it...because I'm level 40!!!!!! I just want to sell some stuff! Where are the auctioneers?!?! SO I jump onto an 80 hoping to port over to T Bluff and put a stop to this stuff. Only problem it takes for frickin ever. I was putting up wind blocking thingies andanti-cyclone totems and fighting off an endless supply of elementals for what seemed at least 30 minutes with no appreciable effect. Guess I need to send banker to another city. Meh....zombie thing was fun....I'm finding this irritating right now...
Amazing how difficult it is to PvP with a baby in your lap. Even auctions or blogging are next to impossible. Somehow at 4 weeks old, out like a light, the little beast can tell the moment I stop dancing and sit down in fron of the PC. Maybe I need to make a standing computer station. Hey! There's an idea! Anyway, currently working on replacing my furious gear with the relentless gear that is now available without arena points. Hope all is well with you and the WoW worrld!
