HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Benediction for Rinnum

A friend of mine recently quit World of Warcraft for the second time and I think this time it’s permanent. In June I checked my in-game mail to find several messages and items from Rinnum with the note “I’m deleting all my characters so I won’t need this anymore.”

Rinnum had played World of Warcraft for a very long time and was one of those people who just seemed to know WoW lore. He raided quite seriously back in “classic” WoW as a priest. Then there was some drama and he deleted his all his characters. When he returned to the game he rerolled as Alliance, and started up a Human Warlock named “Rinnum”.

I kept the mail messages for the full 30 days (hoping he might change his mind and return to the game) but eventually I opened and accepted all his gifts. My bank alt now sports her own Noble’s Monocle (so cute!) and is carting heavy stacks of ore around Stormwind.

Rinnum also gifted me with The Eye of Shadow. My guild members were quick to inform me that The Eye of Shadow was one half of a pair of trinkets, required by level 60 Priests to create the weapon of its time: Benediction.

So Rinnum, this one’s for you.

ps. Thank you to my friends who raided Molten Core with me for the Eye of Divinity. Don’t even think about quitting WoW!

pps. Every 30 minutes I can transform Benediction (see the On Use ability) into her sister, Anathema for MP5 instead of critical strike. Two weapons in one. I wish Blizzard would do this again, it fascinates me. Anathema was intended for Shadow Priests, but I’m not quite sure how the stats on Anathema were more suitable for damage than Benediction. I suspect that originally Anathema did Shadow Spell Damage (more than 56), but I’d love for someone else to confirm/deny.

    I would have been more impressed if you had healed all those peasants in your Dungeon 1 set Cass!

    As it was I failed it the first time LOL!

    Holy Nova doesn’t work and I followed the first group too far before realising more peasants were spawning and get slaughtered.

    And that last picture is of me in the Devout dungeon set yes.

    I did the epic questline for Anathema a while back too, and it amazing! The quest is actually still tough, and I had to spec holy in order to get it done, myself. Still, in my eyes nothing beats an RP set like having Merciless Gladiator (Season 2) while cradling Anathema.

    Something about that black T5…

    Still, gratz on achieving something that a) is rare these days and b) most likely removed during Cataclysm (boo!) ^_^

  6. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
