HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

The New Hybrid: Resto/Resto

My primary spec? Restoration. My secondary spec? Restoration.
The best part about having these two Restoration builds is that I am using both my specs, often swapping mid-raid, and my 1000g has definitely paid itself off. It also makes me a little sad. I never intended to be a tree when I rolled this Druid. I leveled Lath as Moonkin and loved it every minute of it until I realised at level 70 that raiding guilds wanted Resto Druids, not Balance Druids.

Starcaller

Our 10 man group defeated Algalon the Observer on Sunday. If you’re following Lathere’s and my Achievements closely you probably already know that. It took us 3 weeks – 2 hours and 33 minutes all up to get him.

Sound and Ambience

The best way to be aware of what is happening around you isn’t always to pivot your camera and take a look. It isn’t always installing a bunch of addons. Take your eyes off your cast bar (or combo points or whatever) for a moment and look around. Turn on your sound and listen. So many cues in this game come from sound, I honestly don’t know how people play with it turned off.
