We briefly discussed how cool it would be if you could watch a guild attempting Mag from inside the last room in Blood Furnace. Then again, there's a lot of spectator parts of Wow (can you say Arenas?) that I think would be really cool to be implemented.
After that, Romand and I
Then I ran a heroic Blood Furnace, just for the heck of it. And then... I tried something different.
I have a level 64 priest who I vowed I'd get him to 70 one day. He's been shadow for 64 levels (wait... do the first 10 count?), and I've only healed on the most dire occasions. I get frustrated with solo lvling him because he's not Leiandra. He just doesn't have the damage output or Frost Nova/Blink escape tactics that a mage does. Last time I quested with him, I kept complaining in guild chat that I couldn't find my Fireball spell.
So, some guild member alts asked me to heal for them in Mana Tombs. I thought, why not? Spent the 1g for the respec, and I'm not a holy priest. Of course, I think I royally screwed up my talents (forgot to get the mana regen), and all my gear has been focused on being a shadow priest, so I'm not extremely effective. I found myself running out of mana a lot.
Furthermore, I thought I'd try out HealBot Continued, and I had some kinks in that. I got the whole alt-shift-ctrl right and left clicking. My mouse only has the two buttons and the scroll wheel, so not sure how you get the 4th and 5th buttons that are advertised on mouse-over. I couldn't figure out where Power Word: Shield was for those emergency moments, so people died a lot in our run. Anyone have something I can read to figure out how to use Healbot better for a priest? I like the ideas, I just have too many healing type spells for it. lol. Maybe I should be using it in conjunction with the actual interface. I really don't know.
Our group was a little obscure though. We had Yourmom (yeah, we all love that name and all the jokes that come along with it) as our lvl 70 lock ringer, then the rest of us (Shaman and Mage) were level 64. Aerowin, the mage, (yes you!) kept pulling (probably first mistake) when I didn't have enough mana. She asked what my mana regen was and I said, "SHADOW PRIEST GEAR." lol.
At any rate, since I've never really been a healer, I look forward to this challenge. Hopefully I can figure it out with some successful runs (we almost got to the 2nd boss, but called it, mostly because we were all tired). So, here's to another adventure.
