No, this is not the continuation post for Del’s non-meme meme thing.
Personal life is a little weirded out right now, and it’s affecting my ability to put down cognitive thought to paper (or blog).
So, just a quick update on my poor little priest.
Last night he got drug through ICC from start to well, end of raid time.
So for the first time, he got to see everything that happens BEFORE the BQL fight.
Thankfully we have an awesome druid healer on our Thursday night team (wave to everyone, Tattia!). I frequently felt like I wasn’t really needed there to heal, just, you know, look handsome standing around in my blond foxtail.
We duo-healed the lower spire, dropped Saurfang before there was even a mark.
One-shot Festergut (did have Slice swap from ret to holy to help heal that). Even one-shot Rotface with me panicking about dispelling diseases.
Had a couple people that weren’t experienced beyond this point.
Move up to Prof Putricide and down him in one go.
Blood Prince Council was 3 to get them.
BQL was 4.
VDW was 2. And I solo-healed the raid, go me!
At that point we were half hour past raid end, but it was worth it. A certain mohawk-sporting troll got a cloak and I am fully expecting to see a blog post celebrating this happy occasion.
Mag’hari Chieftains’ Staff is mine as well as the Cerise Coiled Ring off of the Princes and I collected the friendly-level Ashen Verdict ring.
Shuffled some badges around and got a neck and cloak upgrade back in Dal to replace some heroic dungeon blues.
My little gearscore is up to 4600+!
After the raid I ended up in Silvermoon.
Yes, I would like to learn more about this dual spec option you offer me. (I am now bi-specual, giggity.)
I learned a disc spec and stood around with Tir on his priest casting bubbles and practically squealing in delight when I saw how fast my AoE dispel magic casts now.
And Penance totally looks cool. Get two priests facing each other and casting it at the same time… very cool.
Casting Penance is similar to casting Prayer of Mending, it has this “I AM HITTING YOU WITH HEALS, BEEEYOTCH!!!!” effect to it, with the recipient looking like they are taking damage. Once you play DPS I guess you just keep looking for ways to hurt people. Even if they are your friends. Now come here and let me heal you. IN THE FACE!!!
Haven’t actually taken Disc out for a spin yet, I was just starting to get the hang of Holy, not sure how well I’ll be able to switch between them. I still have problems healing something and then switching to my mage and wanting to bubble people.
I’m still screaming a lot and stringing together curse words in rapid repetition, usually just “SHIT SHIT SHIT” or “FUCK FUCK FUCK” over and over again or this keening, pained noise that makes people in restaurants look at our table funny. But people aren’t dying (much) and I don’t think I’ve wiped a raid yet.
There’s always next week.
