Healing Perspectives: Thok

2 Comments

This is the one fight where the big baddie we fight actually seems both to me – big and bad. If there was one fight I saved my all caps “OH MAH GAWD” moments for, this would be it. Just saying – having a ridiculously huge dinosaur come charging at you is a legit… and I mean legit reason to panic.

Not that I panicked. Not once. Nope. Ok… maybe twice. No, really.

OK FINE HE ATE ME THREE TIMES ALREADY! *ahem*

Being Horde

15 Comments

It’s a been around three months since I started raiding hordeside and that’s around enough time for me to consider bringing up my army of alts there. (I am still a gnome at heart ofcourse, and I always poke my raid team about going back to the alliance but hey, that’s not what this post is about.)

I’ve rolled numerous horde alts in the past – often inspired by the Warcraft cinematics I watched. In fact my very first horde toon, an undead warlock, was inspired by the badass murloc-burning guy you see up there. I’m the sort of the player who likes to relate a little bit to my characters – even if they’re only being rolled for something like profession purposes. And so I was quite surprised that when I tried to roll my alts this time around, I found myself somehow unable to play a majority of the horde races. What had changed?

Healing Perspectives: General Nazgrim

1 Comment

General Nazgrim is another of those familiar figures appearing in Siege of Orgrimmar. He was a cool quest-giver and a loyal orc in my book so he gets praises for that. And he is probably the only “honourable” boss in this raid instance. His decision to stick to Garrosh was disappointing but his choice lessens my reluctance to kill him. It was a choice and he chose to follow a tyrant – now he reaps what he sows.

Healing Perspectives: Fallen Protectors

2 Comments

I admit that when I did the Golden Lotus dailies way back, I didn’t enjoy them very much simply because of the daily overdose. But I still liked the quest-givers, and I felt sad when I saw that they had become part of the raid. It was pure horror for me when I looked up to see their names and…. recognised them.

Sun Tenderheart, Rook Stonetoe and He Softfoot – rest in peace.

Healing Perspectives: Immerseus

2 Comments

This is an interesting start to the new tier for me. Last night was an awesome raid night. We walked into the raid and were done with the first four bosses within an hour. Which is great ofcourse – except now I have four posts to catch  up on! 🙂

The first bad guy we’ll deal with is Immerseus – a watery boss who looks much scarier than he actually is.

Healing Gear for Priests: Patch 5.4

1 Comment

Greetings! Patch 5.4 is almost upon us, so it was time for me to make my handy-dandy list of shinies that I’d like. Note that for this patch, there will be no valour gear from vendors. We will, however continue to have a chance at slightly better “warforged” gear throughout (the 5.4 equivalent of “thunderforged”). Flex raiding is making an entrance this patch, and with it a fourth item level.

So far, here’s how they look: LFR – 528, Flex – 540, Normal – 553, Heroic – 566. For simplicity’s sake, I’ll be linking to the normal versions of items.

This list includes gear from: Siege of Orgrimmar (raid), World bosses and professions.
