Changing of the guard!
My 2 80′s. The priest, Liyhe is the elder of the two, started back in summer of 09?
The paladin was more of a joke alt. Never really intended it to be leveled more than a few levels. Until Del and Lyssi started to level. Then decided to pick the paladin up, was originally going to go prot/ret. Haha that didn’t last too long. She has gone from Prot/Ret, to Prot/holy, to Holy/Ret, and now back to Prot/Holy. I don’t mind tanking I really do not (I had a tank in FFXI), but I am not good at mob tanking…and I have THE AoE threat tank…yeah…I am loltank. Single target I think I am ok.
I have to say…being a paladin healer is hell of a lot more fun then priest healer. The healing style is more reminiscent of white mage in FFXI. Although, paladin’s do not have the AoE spells of a white mage, the constant casting and btute force healing play is like coming home.
It’s ironic my paladin is not as old as my priest but the paladin has seen more of ICC 25 then my priest. And for the most part has all the same achievements my priest does. Gear wise i would say pretty comparable as well…only things lowering Orange’s gearscore is shield trinkets, and cape.
Back to the priest, I have decided to drop having to healing specs. Going to go with Disc and Shadow. (She started as shadow, then World of Snarkcraft had a great guide to lvl as healy priest, respecced and went to it! When I got duel spec, she was Holy/Shadow, to Disc/Holy, and now to Disc/Shadow) With the amount of healers now in guild, having a DPS spec to throw into the mix should help out with setups.
Last night in ICC 10 i was able to pick up a few pieces of caster DPS gear. With those equipped I am at 7.85% hit and with the 3 percent hit from shadow talents I am at 10.85% Looks like i need quite a bit more to get to that hit capped. Also more haste is needed sitting around 637 and crit rating of 25.22%.
And from a PuG VoA 25
Time to grind out EoT for some t9 and save remainder of EoF for T10 associated gear.
Back to that ICC 10…lol..i think i had a blond moment…i forgot my keys..muscle memory was gone for a few moments…I was looking for my Holy Light Button etc….
Oh no someone needs a big HEAL…HOLY LIGHT INBOUND!!! But instead…oh wait…Bubble and heal…lol definitely took some use to.
And for the chance a fellow priest reads this. For Shadow is the rotation, apply DoTs, Mindblast? then either mindflay or the mind sear depending on if single target or trash. Then reaaplly Dots? or do not even bother with find blast? Also is PW:Death not used?
But today is friday and tomorrow morning i get to see my favorite lock. :) She can lifetap me!
Oh yes and Phil’s BBQ
