Progress… and Standing in Bad

Firelands is going very well for NoQ  currently 1/7hc – still steadily holding Realm 1st [25m].  We hope to have Rhyolith H nailed this lockout with some nice shinys for some –not me tho, im so far down the EPGP PR list its not funny ! 

Been messing about with my UI again and i have FINALLY settled on this one –

 

 

As expected Shannox Heroic 25 was a walk in the park…almost ridiculously easy.  The jump between Shannox H and Rhyolith is very much industrail sized with rhyolith being very RNG…just when u think ur not standing in bad – u are ! –   Very movement intensive encounter – sure keeps the healers hearts pumping…. we are 6 healing Ryolith currently, our usual setup is Holydin, Disc Priest, Holy Priest and 3 [yes 3] Druids.

Atonement spec just wasnt working for me on this encounter.   Granted it did the job of keeping the spark tank up but with almost 150k mana I can afford to drop a lot more shields on the raid to lessen the raid damage some what, therefore the non-smite spec was working much better.   2 points in Veiled shadows for the reduced Shadow Fiend is a must when shield spamming 🙂   I also picked up desperate prayer – ideal for the many times when standing in bad cant be helped and u need to finish that big heal cast on ur tank. [or for the times youre distracted momentarily whilst drinking a glass of wine]….

 

 

I do find myself shuffeling talent points around depending on the encounter.   Atonement spec feels fairly redundant in this tier apart from on shannox and staghelm which is a shame because I like my gnome wings

 

 

Everyone is raving about the super awesome Moonwell Chalice trinket from the Molton Front daily quests, I have this bound up in a macro along with Power Infusion – the combination is awesome if u treat the it like a raid cooldown.   Pop this and spam your heart out with Prayer of Healing spam.    All those shiny Divine Aegis bubbles will get huge !..particularly useful for Ragnaros if you use the ‘stacking in the midle’ for seeds tactic. 

Anyway, have fun in Firelands, im back in there myself this evening trying to dodge volcanos and those pesky little adds /fade

ciao for now x

4.1 PTR Shaman Spirit Link Totem

Dropped into the PTR earlier to check out the latest addition for Shamans.

‘Spirit Link Totem’

(new talent) reduces damage taken by all party and raid members within 10 yards by 10%. This lasts 6 seconds, and every second it is active the health of all affected players is redistributed among them, such that each player ends up with the same percentage of their maximum health. This counts as an Air totem and has a 3-minute cooldown.

Have to say – its looks pretty smart 🙂

 

I will try it out properly in a dungeon tomorro !
