I’m struggling to adjust to my new work schedule, and so my posts have become sporadic.
When I do post, the posts are lacking. They are either short and filled with pictures, or long and rambly and without much clarity (not that my posts were not like that before, but it seems they are even moreso now).
I’m blaming this on working third shift. The spare time I have to write is slim, and it often falls during times when I am quite sleepy.
I am still playing WoW just as much as I was before.
The horde alts have been shelved for the moment, and my partner and I are focusing on the druid and shaman. We both desperately want these toons to be 80 for Cataclysm.
I’m spending less and less time raiding with my guild. My druid is in the guild, so I still get guild chat, but I tend not to log on vent when I’m with my partner. I kind of feel bad since that is where most of the socializing happens.
I think everyone is going through a WoW slump right now. We barely push our raids to Rot and Fester and call it a night, not to extend next week. It’s rather depressing to think I might not even see the LK fight before the new expansion comes out. What can you do when you’re struggling to keep a full 10 man raid continuously?
I’ve been pugging 25 man ICC. This week I went with my partner’s guild. They are struggling to fill their raids too, and so are pugging spots.
I’ve been thinking more about switching to Holy spec on Ama. That way I could fill any healing role. I’m terrified that I’ll be really bad at Holy. Last time I played as Holy was back in Naxx, the guild I was in at the time had me switch when it was time for the Loatheb fight. I never felt very confident, and often felt mana starved.
I wonder if I’d feel the same way today? Will I be able to use my same gear? Will I have to change gems/enchants? How can I practice being Holy outside of a raid?
I’ve talked to my new healing partner about these things. She says that mana is less of an issue with high level gear. She suggested that 5 mans are not a good way to try to practice being Holy. She insists it’s hard to heal heroics as Holy. I think I’d still like to give it a try. Being a Discipline priest feels like it was made for healing heroics. It has a tool for every situation. A Holy priest is still a priest. Can it be that much different?
Rambling post is rambling. What did I tell you?
Alright, I leave you with…
BC gear at it’s finest?
