My mage is my main.
My mage is my main.
I swear it.
So how does it happen that my priest ends up healing ICC 25 last night?
Normally, we have a plethora of resto shaman, but two of them mysteriously were not there last night.
The guild that we are partnering with for 25s now on Tuesday nights tends to be a little short on the heals.
So we were lacking heals.
We were not lacking DPS.
I… offered to come in and heal on my priest.
*sobs quietly in the corner*
On the whole, it wasn’t too terribly bad.
Saurfang went down after the second mark, which was a good thing as I was assigned to the third… and the new people didn’t seem to quite comprehend what we meant by, “you, with the mark! move into melee!”
Healing the puppies was a little nerve-wracking.
Weekly quest was the Rotface/Festergut goo.
Had some sort of issue on Festergut, I’ll take blame I guess since people died…
Got it on the second attempt.
Then one shot Rotface.
That one left me on the edge of tears. I don’t think we had but 7-8 people standing at the end. The dispel healers went down fairly early and I freaked out as I realized that I was the last of the healers alive that could dispel. Dying was NOT an option for me. Eeek.
Skipped the Professor and tackled Blood Princes.
And somehow, on our second attempt, killed them.
Back to Professor, gave it a good shot and then we had respawns so called the raid.
I ended up with a couple new pieces of gear, was even able to buy a frost trinket. Decided to shell out for the ICC-level craftable pants since I was now *gasp* actually raiding on the character.
Ultimately, I ended up with these after the raid:
That’s right, I’ve been healing ICC 10 and 25 without even the Superior achievement, lol.
Then, to top it off, I realized what a fail priest I was.
After the puppies, I switched from Holy to Disc.
I’m getting a little more used to it, chain bubbling is still a little awkward and I miss my Serendipity stacks.
Standing in Dal after the raid, I had the sudden insight that I had not cast Penance once from the time I switched to Disc until the raid ended.
Yes, a Disc priest that never cast their trade mark spell.
I am fail priest.
And to make it even better…
When I died at Professor Putricide, I was all put out that dying to a pool of slime (yes, on purpose) didn’t trigger the fail angel (spirit of redemption). I even said something about it in vent, immediately followed by something along the lines of, “damn I’m dumb.”
Stupidity aside, it was time to run some randoms since I need 50 more triumph to get another reasonable trinket.
Swapped some guild mates around and ran a few, netting me:
Oh, and the one for pugging with 10 people.
During the raid I also got the 100 raid emblems one.
There really isn’t anything for Arioch in the lower spire anymore except badges… but I don’t know what I would spend them on.
Need to find a way to bring in the priest for the lower spire and mage past that….
