HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Tag Archives: Ulduar

Dressing Down

I’m probably getting way ahead of myself. But there’s a chance, a small chance, that I might be able to weasel my way into a 10 man Ulduar group bent on earning both their Rusted Protodrakes and the title, Herald of the Titans. I’m so excited!

Switching it Up for Mimiron

Last week I had the opportunity to do something that I’ve been avoiding since the release of Wrath of the Lich King: raiding with my Rogue. I’d logged off for the night when my roommate asked me if I’d come in and help him finish Ulduar 10. While I had been raiding ToC with my guild some old WoW friends had organised an impromptu Ulduar raid. I was excited for them – most of them were experiencing Ulduar for the first time. Of course I was happy to help.

The End of An Era

For the last four blissful months I’ve been the sole, main spec, Shadow Priest in my guild. That time has come to an end. We’ve just accepted a new Shadow Priest into the guild.

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.

Raiding 10s vs 25s

During our 10 man last week the conversation came up:
What do people prefer? 25 mans or 10 mans?

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.

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.

Post 3.2 Disillusionment

This isn’t about hardcore vs casual. It isn’t about elitism or exclusiveness. It’s about challenge and reward and, even more importantly, timing. This is a rant, reader beware.

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.

Healing Heartbreak

Our guild finally got the Heartbreaker achievement from XT-002 Deconstructor on Thursday night after only a couple of wipes. I think the reason we were so successful tonight compared to our Wednesday night attempts was the healing team composition we put together. The healing team composition we used for success was:

* 2 Restoration Druids
* 2 Holy Priests
* 2 Restoration Shamans
