Restoration (Shaman) No More

I tried. I really did. I waited until I had gathered 200+ Emblems of Triumph and bought all my 232 Tier 9 to see if it would make a difference. It didn’t. I still struggled to heal as a Restoration Shaman.

Good News for Trees of Life

OK it creeps me out a teeny bit when I write a post about how I personally envision things changing… and then I read a short paragraph from Blizzard that sounds eerily familiar!

DPS Isn’t as Easy as You Might Think

Lathere is a healer. I am a damage dealer. But we both have alts at level 80. And we’ve both tried to swap roles, with little success. And watching Lath fail in her new role… is actually pretty satisfying. That’s sisterly love for you. I wrote this article so that we can learn from her mistakes.

15 Things You Should Know About
the Dungeon Finder

Guess which feature of 3.3 had me the most excited? Not Icecrown Citadel (a gated raid instance launched at the start of the holiday season?), not hasted Devouring Plague and Vampiric Touch. The new cross-battlegroup Dungeon Finder matching system.

Thursday night saw us in front of the lovely Freya and lucky for me I was assigned to raid healing! Rejuvenation now does an instant tick of approximately 1500 plus its regular ticks. I’m finding when assigned to raid, Rejuvenation is now contributing to approximately 50% of my healing, followed by Wild Growth and then Lifebloom.

The Easiest (and Hardest) Heroics to Heal

I bought up the best BoE epics and blues at level 80 and started to work the PuG Heroic circuit. Almost 3 weeks later I think I have most of the good epic drops from heroics and several badge items. I’m nearing the point where I’m over geared for heroics now. Mostly from my recent [...]
