HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Category Archives: DoTs // DPS

Carry Me

On Saturday the daily was Heroic Oculus. I picked up the quest and put myself in LFG and had an invitation before I had finished stocking up on candles. I was the last member (score!) and I was told to dps (omg!).

Hodir’s Cache Really is Rare

Last night we had a dream raid. After finishing up in Trial of the Crusader, we went right in to kill Auriaya (no problem) and 1 shot Hodir and earnt the achievement. First attempt! And I recorded it for you all.

Faction Champions like to PvP (Update)

Last night we killed the Horde Faction Champions in Trial of the Crusader (third boss). I loved it. I L O V E D I T. I loved it so much that not only did I forget to hit record, I completely forgot to take a screen capture.

Patch 3.2 Shadow Priest Gear
for the 25 man Raider

It’s always hard to get your head around what gear/upgrades are the smartest to make when a new bunch of gear is released in game. This list showcases the best items available to you – as a 25 man raiding priest – with a Hit/Haste/Crit option per slot.

Patch 3.2 Shadow Priest Gear
for the 10 man Raider

Bring on the shiny new gear! This post is aimed at 10 man raiding Shadow Priests and casual players who want to see some of the cool new loot available in game with Patch 3.2. In this list I have used my preferred stat weightings to create a list of achievable gear for the 10 man raider. Not all items have been listed but I’ve tried to find the best Hit, Haste and Critical Strike piece for each gear slot.

More Fun than a Game of Snake

Lord Jaraxxus was a super fun fight – once you’ve got everyone in position it’s pretty much easy peesy as a ranged DPS caster. I think perhaps healers might struggle with this fight the most.

Into Pure Shadow Energy

Blizzard love Dispersion. They want us to love it too. But it’s lacking somehow. I believe that’s because it exists to server two purposes and doesn’t excel at either.

Two Items I’d Like to See in World of Warcraft

There’s not enough items in World of Warcraft. These are the two that I want. Maybe some day someone from Blizzard will agree with me and actually implement them (I can dream, can’t I?).

Pain and Heartbreak

As soon as the Heart of the Deconstructor appears I pop a potion, dot, dot, dot and Shadowfiend then spam Mind Flay. This is one fight that I’m not happy with my own personal performance. Not even close. Our raid leader is setting the bar at 300k damage done to the heart and I can’t consistently make that mark.

Zabra-cadabra

Blizzard are talking about the next patch which contains a new raid. And a whole new Tier set. It just feels way too soon for me. Before I stick my head in the sand about this new raid I just had to look once at the Shadow Priest Tier 9. Just once to see what it looks like.
