Tier 12: Why Nerfs Missed the Mark

1 Comment

Warning: I am pretty damn annoyed, so this post might be ranty. Enter at your own risk.

When nerfs to Firelands were announced, I was one of the few who was welcoming them. Progress in Firelands was slow, but steady for us. And with only doing four hours of raiding per week, I thought we were doing fine for the most part. Many of the bosses required near-perfect execution and mistakes were very unforgiving. With a dozen kills and no loot (hello RNG), I was decently ticked off enough to say “hey bring on the nerfs!”

Today was my first raiding experience post-nerfs and you know what?  I take it back. I take it all back. Give me back my un-nerfed world.

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.

It was a great learning experience and I intended on keeping it until the fiery action of this tier came along. Now, I’m not going to be getting anything fiery as a healing druid as far as I know, so I really want my offspec to get in on the action. 

That’s my adorable little buddy there, and he and I will be braving the baddies of Firelands together! I will return to my roots, hehe, and pick up the boomkin spec again. The real selling point for me was the tier bonus which calls forth a burning treant to help burn down the baddies. Now thats just awesome…how could I pass it up? =P
