My Gear is Too Good to Queue as a Healer

Sometime during the last month I stopped queuing as a Healer or Damage for the Random Heroic. Now I just choose Damage.

Revisiting Maraudon: Pristine Waters

This guide will take you on a loop that kills all four bosses but you’re going to get your satchel midway. To kill Princess T (the “final” boss) last would require a heck of a lot of extra clearing and backtracking. This run is much shorter, but you may need to convince your party to stick around for the second half.

Revisiting Maraudon: Orange Crystals

The Orange Crystal run will be the second part of Maraudon that you visit using the Dungeon Finder. This time around we’re killing evil plants. And slugs.

Revisting Maraudon: Purple Crystals

The Purple Crystal run, containing the lowest level enemies and thus first in the series, will start you in a blue shadowed area called The Wicked Grotto. I hope you’re ready to kill some imps and demons!

Absolute Power

In this modern day of Dungeon Finder, Dungeon Finder, Dungeon Finder etc etc I can tell you who has all the power – tanks!

Revisting Uldaman

One of the nicest surprises the Dungeon Finder has given me has been Uldaman. Not the Uldaman of my past, but Uldaman without all the crap. Uldaman for fun and XP. Uldaman has a bad reputation, but most of it doesn’t really apply anymore.

Eyes in the Dark

Each time I get sent back to Old Kingdom (which happens much too frequently) I struggle to heal the trash pulls between the first boss, Elder Nadox, and second boss, Prince Taldaram. Especially as the Shaman. It’s messy – you’ll get knocked around, feared and, if unlucky, suffer back to back silences. This is one place where the charge/AoE/brute force healing isn’t going to get you through on its own. So if you’re tired of struggling with these pulls and want a clean, controlled slaughter with minimal incoming damage here’s how to do it. Properly.

Tanks: How to Make Your Random Healer Love You

I will stay, I will stick it out because I want to heal you. If you acknowledge that I’m a real person, with a real name and call me by that name (Cassandri, in this case) I will do everything in my power to keep you alive.

Breaking Down Gnomeregan

My basic map of Gnomeregan is intended for players who get handed Gnomeregan when they queue for a classic dungeon. I’ll do my best to help you out with the quests later on in the guide.

Learning the Wrong Lesson

I think my tank in Heroic Pit of Saron let me die yesterday. I think he was trying to teach me a lesson. Honestly this tank wasn’t completely in the wrong to try and teach me a lesson.

Disclaimer: Cassandri is a Shadow Priest. I will do, to the best of my ability, what Shadow Priests do best in all situations.
