In between bouts of madness in ZA/ZG this past weekend I actually got some stuff done.
Earlier in the week the guild switched to 10s from 25s and my mage was placed on a raiding team again.
And there was much rejoicing.

As you may or may not be aware, I’ve been working on getting a priest up to level 80.
