An Appeal For Help

A post from the heart…

My dear sister is begining the biggest fight of her life, for her life.  Recenlty she was diagnosed with Brain Cancer, an inoperable tumor of the most aggresive kind.

Time is of the essence.   A fund has been set up to help raise some money for pioneering treatment in america since here in the UK, the only ‘treatment’ is Chemotherapy & Radiotherapy which at best will only slow down the growth rate of the tumor.

Shes a young mother with a gorgeous son who needs his mummy.  Please take a few moments to read Lauras Story, and if you can, any donations or help is greatly appreciated.

In the meantime, cherish the people you love, life is too short.

Blackwing Descent – Elevator Boss Stats

Bam !

Elevator Boss is indeed one of the hardest bosses that ppl just take for granted that they can faceroll when clearly they cant.

I guarantee there is at least 2 deaths per raid on the Ele Boss !

Numerous Guides to defeat this boss are available on various forums.  Beware of Elevator Boss in Hard Mode – aka the Life Gripping Priests – one minute youre running in one direction stepping off the elevator – the next- bam! youre on your way back up to the top.

Hardmode at its finest. 

There are various achievments assiciated with the boss – such as Nitro Boots + Cloak Parachute + Dodging the Life gripping Priest as well as hoping the Nitro Boots wont Leak and kill you on your way to Chimaerons room.

Oh the Joy – nice to see once again Blizz have a sence of humor.

ciao for now !

Disc @ 4.1 PTR – Atonement

A quick look on the PTR earlier @ the changes for Atonement.  the addition of Holy Fire to Atonement is a clear winner.

Have a look at the short clip:

 

Nice huh ?

 

Ciao for now.

‘Tails’ from the PTR

I just had to get me one of these cute little guys ‘Nightsaber Cub’

 

 

And then I had to feed him one of these ‘Pet Biscuits’

….. I give you … ‘ Industrial sized Cub’

Disc @ 4.1 Set Bonus Change … Soon ??

SO their may be light at the end of the infinate tunnel of nerf/buff/nerf/buff…..


 

 

The blues have come up with this:

 

Holy 4-piece set bonus:
This is feedback we’ve seen quite a bit, and it’s good. With the changes to Chakra in 4.0.6, we realize a lot of players feel that the Holy 4-piece set bonus is currently much stronger than its Discipline counterpart. We don’t disagree and it’s something we’ve been actively discussing changing in 4.1 (for example, we’re considering potentially removing the Weakened Soul requirement on Penance targets in order for the Spirit bonus to apply).

 

/cheer

Lets hope this makes it to PTR soon !

Disc @ 4.1 PTR Changes [aka Nerfs]

* Ouch * That Nerf hurt !
x Power Word: Barrier‘s cooldown has been increased to 3 minutes, up from 2, and its effect has been reduced to 25%, down from 30%. [O M G….. im lost for words….. ‘WTF’ dosent quite cut it to be honest]

/cry


Other Changes:

Inner Will and Inner Fire now last until canceled. [because it was SO hard to click the button every 30 minutes !]
It is now possible to remove Weakened Soul effects that were a result of another priest’s Power Word: Shield through Strength of Soul. [Handy if more that 1 Disc Priest in your Raid – or a bubble happy Holy Priest !]


…. ok so it is only ‘PTR’ and subject to several changes between now and release [thankfully] but come on Blizz – the Disc priest community are still sore over the PW:S mana increase and now you increase our Barrier’s cooldown !!?? Why ?!?

Many Disc Priests will be forced to respec to Holy who right now look to come to 4.1 in one piece and still playable.

Outraged – this has prompted me to download the current PTR and copy my beloved heartbroken Disc Priest to Brill EU….so ANY future change I can have a look at straight away. [waits for new spells and buffs !!]

Im sure Blizz [hopefully] reads the community forums and probably visits places like MMO – tbh the QQ is flooding everywhere so it isnt going to be hard for Blizz to miss it.


My 4.1 Wish List

  • Prayer of Healing to not only auto Proc Divine Aegis but to apply 1 x stack of Grace on each target.
  • Inner Focus – 45 sec cooldown -In addition to its current effects –  Make spells not only mana free but instant cast.
  • *New Spell* – Empowered Penance: A burst of Holy Energy fires at your target and the 4 nearest lowest Health targets healing all 5 targets for [no more than 10k] 20 sec cd.  To look like Penance – but only 1 burst not 3 and to only apply 1 stack of Grace per target.
  • More Divine Aegis auto procs to make good use of our ‘mastery’ and steer us further away from PW:S spamage.

Not asking for much ? …anyway – see you on Brill !

Ciao for now.

Disc Priest Moonwells aka Shoulders

Do not laugh at this picture ! I look like a strange 80’s throwback with these enormous shoulders ! they dont do much for a lil Gnome it has to be said.  Dont even get me started on the fish bowl of a Helm but /yay for engineering goggles !


All you pet lovers out there please keep away from me and my moonwells – I dont wanna find and of these

finding there way in !

 

ciao for now !

New UI [Again] !

Ok, so I changed my mind.. [again] Womans perogative to do so 😛

Here we are [Blackwing Descent -Nefarian 25man]- same addons as in this post:  https://shinypriest.wordpress.com/2011/01/20/my-healing-ui/ – different layout 🙂

Think i will stick to this one 🙂

Get away from me Rogue !

We all love macros right ?  Love PVP too ? [personally i hate it but still…moving on..] Hate the rogue that seems to beat on you all the time ?

Try this fun macro next time you want to fear that rogue who’s on your back !

#showtooltip Psychic Scream
/script PlaySoundFile(“Sound\\Creature\\Falric\\HR_FalrIC_SP02.wav”)
/cast Psychic Scream
/y Fear… So Exhilarating…

enjoy !

Hotfix Woes

Lifebound Alchemist Stone can no longer be disenchanted, ouch.

  • Im not an enchanter myself but im sure a lot of ppl were profiting from farming the mats for the stone and having their Alchemy/Enchanting buddy make then DE the stone for the crystal…. im so glad I had my enchants done before this hotfix.  The power torrent and peerless stats would have cost over 10k on my sever had I needed to buy the mats from the overpriced AH.

Wouldnt it be great if Blizz made it so we could have an enchanter DE our soulbound items via the trade window… kinda how we have gear enchanted….but disenchanted...yea not gonna happen is it..
