Coagulater casts Ressurection

I am still alive (with the glory of love)…..

And I finally downloaded the patch last night and healed a heroic. My first impressions? BUBBLES!

And so it begins, my reign of terror returns in the form of bubbles, POM’s and Penances. Thank you blues, I will show you my appreciation by not letting anyone die, and last night I didn’t let it happen.

My lack of updates lately has been due to an ever increasing RL Aggro, thou I absolutely promise that I won’t be leaving indefinitely. I just need to set aside time to play again before I can start calling up some post ideas into play.

Quick side note: Two resto shammies and a disc priest are infinitely OP in Tol Borad, just saying. Trust you healers, they are never far behind.

One Wind To Rule Them All…..

Last night I was pumped, full of energy and excitement to go play in the sky with genies. Big bad mean as grit genies…..did I mention they were genies?

We seemed to have a good raid comp, everyone was buffed to the teeth, and everyone had watched the video on Tankspot (this only known because of the amount of people who find Alienia a tad annoying) and the guild leader had a strategy.

What was causing the wipe? Me and my hunter buddy…..

About 15 times.

How does he do it?

It never ends…..

I am an individual who doesn’t like change, at all. All this new Cataclysm stuff has me feeling uncomfortable, almost irritated at times trying to adjust. The last thing that always irks me once I reach level cap is my UI, but never fear, I have optimized my screen for healing, at least for now. It’s still a little uncomfortable, though it does what it suppose to for now. Continue reading

Gracing and Bubbling

Over the past few days I’ve been busily outlining 4.0.6 Disc priest information in a notepad on the computer, all the while trying to figure out how to piece it all together in a nice form so that it was clear, concise and it dished out how to apply the info into a healing style. Unknown to me, so was Matticus, and he beat me to.

Looking at mine and reading his, I think I would have somewhat double posted, so instead of being a parrot in a room of canaries I’ll just give his post some commentary (and attitude). Continue reading

BA Shared Topic: When Does It Click?

And I’m going to get this in almost by the skin of my teeth.

The BA Shared Topic this week is: What makes an encounter click? It was submitted by Naithin who hails from Fun In Games.

So let’s get to it

I have the “click” from two perspectives, one more than the other, but both with enough time to tell you that between a healer and DPS they appear different.

As a DPS, there is usually a wall that forms for you.  Each attempt on a boss sees that wall get progressively further in relation to the boss’ health. Whether it be the ability to down an add quick enough, finally. Or there could be some mechanic that the DPS MUST cope with/handle, getting through that part starts to turn the adrenaline on. As a DPS, it comes full circle when you notice the boss is doing down, the other damage dealers are staying alive and the DPS charts look healthy near a choke point in an encounter. Boss dies. Encounter completed.

For the healers, it goes a bit different. Fluidity, all fluidity. From the first few seconds in the encounter you can tell whether you’ll be playing catch up the entire encounter or have everything under control. Boss encounters these days are riding in the 9 minute mark, and as a healer, everything is time dependent when it comes to making things click. Are my cool downs being remembered? Am I sweating over tank health? Are the DPS staying out of bad? These are the questions that are always flowing through a healer’s head, and if at anytime one of the questions is answered “no” then the rhythm falls and than you worry whether you’ll have time to get caught back up. The “click” can happen anywhere, in the first 10 seconds or when the boss is at 5%, your healing UI will look like a mixer in a recording studio. Up, down, up, down, all the way up, down and then down a little. Never once in that recording studio of healing will you ever think that the music will die, and that my friends is when it clicks for healers.

To sum It All Up

It just happens, I’ve gone face smashing against many encounters that I thought we’d never get down. Than one night, you go in, and *BOOM* the boss is on the floor 5-10 minutes later and you have no recollection of how it happened. You just feel it clicked.

That’s all I got for now.

Good Luck in Azeroth Clicking

The one where he fills you in…..

Well holy healers! I’m alive. My ability to constant blog wiped on work aggro. So let me update you on life:

A Rise in Views

So I noticed quite a rise on a Friday for blog views, more abnormal than usual. As any blogger would have done I investigated what could be the reason behind this. Zelmaru over at Murloc Parliament linked me under “Guildies Who Blog”. Why in world would I be under under that classification? Let me tell you……

Eff the Ineffable

Because I’m a friendly socialite I saw the invitation to roll on a server with some bloggers that I keep up on almost everyday. So far I have a level 7 warrior named Cambot (MST3K Reference…..Nerds) that hasnt done much other than inflate the number of critters killed. I have met some interesting people in there, and everyone is very nice and has an opinion on everything. I definitely will make sure I visit when I can, I am the self-proclaimed cheerleader of guild.

Guild Morale

So upon finding a fun place to interact with those whom I don’t get to play with everyday I have had some new sparked interest in maybe pushing some morale in Revenged. Our raiding progression hasn’t been the best of  days this expansion (1/12), so I’m searching out fun things for us to do as a way of building confidence in each other…and have fun. Gnome races, scavenger hunts, fishing tourneys, anything as a way of promoting guild entertainment.  If anyone has any ideas I’d greatly appreciate them.

In all the commotion

I have been able to get Coagulater’s Tailoring up to 520, and his Alchemy is at 525 so I’m pretty happy. On a trading contract with Gurhulk for his cloth so he doesnt use it for bandages. Grrrrrr First Aid!!!

That is all for now! I’ll try to whip some posts up in-case work aggro succumbs me once more and I don’t have time to write full posts.

Good Luck in Azeroth!

A Flowchart for All!

 Short post today, more of a “I wanna show you something” post. Stop thinking that way, and get in the van. I dabble around on MMo Champion way too much, mostly for the Blue Tracker and the helpful threads about how “ur doinit rong”.

Once in awhile I catch something from the threads that makes me giggle a bit, and then there are the helpful images or placement images for boss strats. Good stuff. The most recent thing actually front paged on MMO Champion and so I thought I should share it with all my awesome readers. Without anymore wait, here it is….. Continue reading
