Woah, its been a looooong time since my last update ! Far too long.
Lets start with a Happy New Year to you all !
Lots of things happening in the world of WOW. I had huge fun today gathering my ‘Red Transmog Set’.
Its basically made up from the Cindercloth tailoring gear along with a cpl of matching pieces – the helm took about 10 resets in Blackrock Depths before it dropped ! But it was worth the wait. I like to be different and not follow the norm of what most other ppl have transmogged !
So, 4.3 Dragon Soul Raid – Such fun ! My guild is @ 1/8 hc 25man currently. Enjoying it more than Firelands which in the end felt like too much of a grind.
Still loving Discipline Spec – but also loving Holy spec too ! and thats something id never thought would happen !
Anyway just a short n sweet update – more to come in the next few days.
ciao for now !
Hey All !
Yep, im a slacker, ive neglected this blog for a long time….so much has happned, and so much is going on in my personal life which leaves little time for writing things interesting enough for other ppl to appriciate reading !
So, shinypriest ‘whats been going on ?’
Well, As well as making Officer in my guild No Quarter, fundraising for my beloved sister and buying a new Puppy
…ive managed to squeeze in a few Firelands Boss Kills. The guild made it to Realm 1st for 25man and we are steadily holding that place.
I think my favourite encounter thus far is Beth’tilac…although not the most challenging of encounters from a healing perspective i just love climbing the spinners web upto the top! Havent appreciated jumping down to not have any webs stretch out to grab me to break my fall…think ive had 2 deaths because of that so far. [splat]
Anyway..who loves the healing challenge of Baleroc ? yep, another awesome fight, buff watching etc… Ive got some nice Powa Aura’s im using for Vital Spark and Vital Flame..will update the PA section later today.
The guild has a few boss kill videos of the Firelands Bosses we have downed so far on our dedicated Youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/NoQuarterEU
… The 4% wipe on Staghelm was crushing on sunday, loveing that fight too – again it pushes healers to the max. And gives me a headache juggling all the raid cds lol. We are pretty comfortable going with a 7/5/5 scorpion phase. No need to use anything stronger than a Divine Hymn or 2 for the first Scorpion phase as healing isnt that much of a big deal.
On the second scorpion phase it gets a bit mental – we started blowing cooldowns on the 2nd stack thru to the 4th and immediately spread on the 5th.
The third scorpion phase is somewhat ‘easier on healing’ than the 2nd scorpion phase due to the fact noone has ‘seeds’ and therefore the incredible raid damage is properly shared, again start blowing CD’s from stack 2 and try to ‘overlap’ them thru to 5 when the raid breaks to spread out for the Burning Orbs.
The Orbs are a relative non-issue so long as you can communicate and are standing with another player so you can alternate stacks [dont go above 5 stacks or your healers will get pissed]
On the following scorpion phase he needs to die – or you surely will….burn DPS, pots, heroism, and ANY remaining raid healing CDs necessary to get the kill…. I reckon my guild will have this boss nailed this lockout..and then onto Raggy…
This leads me onto my new puppy ‘Diesel’ she is a gorgeous Staffordshire Bull Terrier and despite the bad press staffys have had she is the most loving loyal dog, she has given me new focus and companionship in what is an incredibly difficult time for my family.
Ciao for now !
/shocked …. the dreaded logging onto MMO in anticipation of the updated PTR 4.1 patch notes tuned out well today.
The ‘buffs’ Disc has been given are not only obvious ones that should have been in place at the begining of Cataclysm, they also favour the Atonement Spec heavily. [not good news for those who hate the Atonement Spec…]
- Holy Fire damage has been increased to be approximately 30% higher than Smite. [expect a nerf when this goes live!]
- Atonement now works with Holy Fire in addition to Smite. [ /cheer]
- Glyph of Divine Accuracy now also affects Holy Fire in addition to Smite. [nice – 2 for 1 glyph]
And not only that ^^^ but this too:
- The current healing priest 4-piece raid set bonus no longer requires a target to be under the effects of Weakened Soul for the priest to receive the Spirit bonus. Instead the benefit will be granted each time the priest’s Penance spell heals a target. /cheer at last a viable 4set….now we just need to use penance on cooldown ALL the time and we’re good…
A baby step in the right direction for sure but still – I think Blizz need to focus on our AOE group healing abilitys [or lack of] a bit more.
Divine Aegis auto procs from ALL direct heals plz !! [thats our mastery sorted then]
Hmmm…I wonder…. This change to Holy Fire and Atonement – Would we only see an initial ‘Heal’ from the first hit from Holy Fire ? OR – would we see a residual HoT left on the Atonement target in the same way Holy Fire leaves a DoT ticking for 7 seconds ? …. lol, ok probably not but would be nice wouldnt it !? /logs onto the PTR @ Brill to check it out !
Ciao for now !
Our latest video of our Cho’gall kill 🙂
A nice clean kill.
After a few tweaks ShinyUI is working – I had a silly gnome moment and didnt upload the UI with reflux ‘doh’ – re-uploaded it today and i can confirm it works.
Ciao for now !
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 🙂
