So, I wanted to talk a little about some healing experimentation I’m doing, but I’m lazy and when my blog reader coughed up this lovely nugget from Amber of I Like Bubbles, I figured why waste the energy? Plus, it allows me to do some shameless plugging for my blogging guildies. And, as a lovely side bonus, it introduced me to the new blogger who started the whole thing! Hi there Jessabelle of Miss Medicina!
Thank you Amber for just being awesome and a general inspiration!
View the whole crazy link round-up here!
Kelynaria, (a.k.a Amerya, a.k.a. Big Daddy G), your treeness has been tagged!
Myrah, I know you don’t WoW blog very much, but let’s hear a spacegoat’s point of view! (OMG! Myrah has accepted my challenge! Check out her reply here.)
Your mission, should you two chose to accept it:
Post this questionnaire, with your answers, on your blog. Pick the healing class you know most about (or is the focus of your blog) for the questionnaire, and then send it over to another healing blogger you know and love who heals with a DIFFERENT class. Include a link to the blogger who sent you the questionnaire, as well as a link to the blogger to whom you are sending it.
Onward to the questioneering!
Maegwen, the Holy Priest.
Raids, both 10 and 25, with a healthy does of 5 mans. Practically never PvP and absolutely never arena.
Circle of Healing (a.k.a CoH). Cause I’m laaaaaazy. Though, Prayer of Mending (PoM or “bum heal” is a very close second).
lolwell. Because seriously, lolwell.
Float healing or healing one specific group of people (i.e. melee on XT).
Tree droods have nice compliments to priest heals. Plus, we have a lot of them and I’ve grown fond of them, they don’t want my loots (much) and having more than one around gives me the giddy feeling I’m at a baptist revival. (And brez. Woo brez!)
Healadins. Jesus christ getting a bunch of -adins of all stripes to get their shit together and buff and aura and then not have anyone in the raid whine about the buffs is like fifteen percent of my nightly raid headache.
Just one? Uhm … prolly a tie between my clicking playstyle and my general lack of attention to my *own* health.
Lack of concern for the healers in terms of situational awareness. I’ll bring this mob right to the healer! Maybe I’ll run right at them during light bomb! Or eye beams! Healers love eye beams!
I think trees have a few more tricks up their branches than priests. And I miss my OP CoH. But overall, I think we’re quite good at what we do.
Is anyone dead because of my fail? No? Ok, cool. I also check overhealing meters from time to time just to make sure I’m not too far up on them.
I don’t know, to be honest. Maybe that they’re hard to play?
Binding heal seems to get forgotten a lot. Mana management is a little harder for priests just learning – at least in my experience. I’ve watched a lot of new healers in all the classes learn and not “panic healing” is a big one for everyone.
I’m not always on the top – and I’m fairly high up on overheal, but that’s not a bad thing, lol.
Crit – it seems to have slightly better synergy with my spec and playstyle. Though I wouldn’t say no to assloads of Haste either.
Shamans. Shamans in general are a little confusing for me. Though, I used to say that about paladins as well.
Errr …. DBM. I mostly WoW naked. I am toying with Grid to see if that gives me any massive improvements. A story for another day!
Not really, I like to load up on int, but a good balance is best for priests. Which is nice in some ways, but aggrivating in others.
Can you tell I’ve been focusing more on my healer and less on my hunter these days?
