The Sixth Screenshot….

1 Comment

Glow of Glow’s Branches kindly tagged me (egads….five days ago now) for the Sixes meme that’s been going around! The game is simple:

– Go to your images folder
– Go to the sixth subfolder
– Publish the sixth image
– Pass it on to six fellow bloggers

I will admit that my images are anything but all neatly in one folder. So I resorted to looking at my WoW screenshot folder….except there were two of those. Ah, the disorganised life of Mely. Unable to pick between them, I will be posting the sixth image from each of these folders.

In the older screenshots folder, I came up with:

A random run in heroic Nexus – but look – I’m a tree! Good times good times! *sniff*

Healing Perspectives: Morchok

Leave a comment

Today I finally ventured into Dragon Soul….just to say hi. I couldn’t help but notice how different the experience was from my first foray into Firelands. I enjoyed these fights a whole lot more! There wasn’t an insane amount of trash to be had, the first boss took a few attempts but was relatively painless, as was the following one. The mechanics were interesting and didn’t give me the impression they were designed by a complete sadist. So far, so good.

Speaking of downing bosses, let’s talk about Morchok….Father of Ozruk! Well, not really….or maybe? They do look alike! Here’s how to take him from the perspective of a healer. For clarity, this post is about dealing with Morchok on 10 man normal mode.

Druid Class Feedback: My Two Cents

Leave a comment

Recently, Blizzard took a keen interest in class feedback on the forums. They stated that much of this feedback is intended not only for 4.3 but also for the long run. While I don’t anticipate I’ll become a tree again, come next patch, I think its fantastic they’re taking such an interest in what we as players think about our class this expansion. It’s also a great opportunity for me to take a good look at what I love/ dislike about healing as a druid in Cataclysm.

Patch 4.3: Druid Tier 13

1 Comment

So here I was all excited about transmogrification and this morning, I woke up to see the awesomeness that will be Tier 13. First things first – we have a ROBE. Thank Elune! Looking at this tier, I have to say that I’m truly excited for it. There’s an incredible amount of detail and thought that’s gone into its design, and I applaud the artists for their fantastic work. There’s some great interplay going on between the electric blue and the more natural green, rounded with the really unique, vine-like shoulders. I couldn’t help but notice that we’d be back in WWE land as far as the belt goes but hey, I think it all comes together so well that I don’t really mind this. Perhaps my transmogrification will have to wait a tiny bit afterall!

Druid Outfits: My Tier Picks for Transmogrification

6 Comments

So transmogrification is on the horizon and there are quite a few reasons I’m excited for it. When I collected and saved Dungeon Set 2 and Tier 1, it was purely for RP reasons and I hadn’t even dreamed of being able to use them outside that context. The meeting of RP and raiding is fantastic for me – I mean, what could be cooler than killing baddies in metaphorical high heels as it were! The other part of transmogrification is ofcourse the ability to hide particularly unflattering sets. Many of the tier sets look fantastic but we always have the odd one that just looks….awful. While I hardly look at my character while raiding, I still like to avoid cringing while logging in! And now, instead of “Follow the tree!” its turned into “Follow the Cactus-head!” or something like that. Unacceptable. There is a reason I am Noggenfogger’s best customer this tier.

My choices for transmogrification have a mix of fashion as well as the stories that make them special to me. Without further ado, here is the list!

Healing Perspectives: Beth’tilac

1 Comment

It is time to kill spiders! Our foe here is none other than Beth’tilac, the Red Widow. And when they said red, boy did they mean red. This is a fun, two phase fight which involves a bit of add management, climbing through her fiery web and a lot of spider squishing. This post, as usual, will focus on this fight for healers rather than a complete rundown of the mechanics. Let’s see what tricks this spider has up her sleeve!
