I actually got this the other day, but I am now a Champion of the Frozen Wastes!

Interestingly enough, the last heroic I needed to do to complete this achievement was also the first WotLK heroic that I ended up tanking instead of dpsing. It was heroic Oculus.

Big achievement for me, because I've never been a raider in any sense of the word, and even in BC I didnt do all of the heroics. But now I've experienced a full clear of Naxx, EoE and Sarth as well as all heroics, so I'm kinda happy with my Paladin right now.

Gratz Jack :) It's funny, but Oculus is the only thing keeping me from that title too, hehe.

Woot! Grats CapJack. that's definitely an achievement that feels good :) and I think we still have several people in my guild that have H-Oculus keeping them from the title.

Finally got the T7.5 helm token and finished my entire T7.5 Holy set. I have the set-matching boots, a gold shield, a gold tabard, and a gold cloak.

Now I get to clear Ulduar in style.

Healed my first WotLK instance, Nexus; I now officially hate the place.

EDIT: Ran it again today, not nearly as bad with an actual competent tank.

got kicked out of a guild for the first time. lol. they had a pally tips spot on they're guild fourms where a holy pally said he was tired of tankatards and went on to say that sor and sov is in ret tree for a reason. and pally tanks aint supose to dps. so i corrected him on the sor being in ret and told him prot pallies use them for threat. I also inspeced his duel spec to see half of the bottom half of prot wasnt used at all. he was going on about how he uses seal of light to help heal him self and make it easier on the healer. So i pointed out his build how he was missing stuff that would reduces damage we was getting along but i guess the guild thought i was rude so i got banned from site and kicked from guild. just goes to show helping others dont always work. I should have knowen better than to try to help someone. I got **** at by a boomkin one time, that was better geared than mine when I asked him about his rotation seeing i was doing almost double his damage at the time.

but woot first time getting kicked out of a guild.

In my first ever exploit into tanking, not even glyphed yet, my armour a mix of crafted blues and Naxx drops (everything the other tanks didnt want) my guild handed my first tanking assignment. I was in charge of the adds on Sarth 10... I am used to staring at the raid ui and only actually looking at my screen when a firewall is coming and maybe moving 10 steps, and now I was chasing a load of angry fire elementals and whelps around. It was fun, but definitely a baptism by fire.
To make things clear, I hadnt even tanked a Heroic prior to coming here.

I got turning tide tonight. And then switched my dual spec to prot (was holy PVE/holy PVP) and tanked my first heroic. Kind of easy when I aquired a 30k health/540def set just from off-set rolls. Not sure if I'll keep this as dual spec, if my raid leader doesn't need me tanking anything I'll probably just go back to ret, or even holy.

Solo tanked Hodir w/o FR gear. It involved rotating all kinds of cool downs on myself, but I did it without any outside cool downs being organized. Our OT (a druid w/ a bunch of FR and the worst RNG luck in the world) went down in the first frozen blows phase and no one else was prepared to take it. It wasn't a win (DPS was too slow, and when they picked it up they got tunnel vision and eventually started going down). We killed him later, but still... 4+ minutes of solo tanking Hodir was the ****

Meant to post this last week but forgot; solo tanked the new VoA 10man boss last week and this week. Fight goes much smoother with an extra dps:) Pugged a couple dps for it this week and i think i blew some warr tanks mind as he kept insisting it required 2 tanks but i made him dps anyway, lol.

Finally dragged my guild into ulduar 10 and found a few nice upgrades. Sitting at just over 4500 AP now, and about 33% crit. The highlight of the evening was averaging 5.5k on kologarn.

Wiped for 3 hours on Yogg, swapped with another Pally healer when I needed a break. The guild continued for another 6 hours straight and finally downed him for a server first Yogg kill. Only on 10Man, but its still a kill and it is server first.

I know this isn't as big of a deal for most of you, but for the first time in my WoW career, I have a raid-level tier piece appropriate for the maximum level of that time. I have some old tier gear, but I got it after the level cap had been raised, so it wasn't earned as much as it was just acquired. It was the tier 7 legs which were a slight boost over my current legs, although I'm no longer hit capped I'm still pretty close to it, and I'm sure I will pick it up after I get some more gear.

Finally killed General Vezax. No luck on Yogg, but I didn't expect any.

56% of total healing on the Vezax kill. Mostly because the other pally died in the first saronite cloud. She can heal, she can tank, but she just can't move.

And of course the tank wanted to make it exciting and died in the last 5 seconds, not running away from that semi-enrage thing.

2 things i've been somewhat excited about lately. my guild is a mostly 10 maann guild that has been working on building our 25 man raiding abilities for a little while. recently guildox.com (the site I refer to for guild progression) added a feature to rate 10 man guilds specifically. it excludes guilds that have more than 9 25 man raid 'points'. our guild since they started that has been comfortably the #1 rated 10 man guild on our server. so that's been pretty exciting.

for the last couple weeks we've only been able to get 18-20 guildies on for any of our 25 man raids. this week we had 23 guildies + 2 friends to finally (really far behind I know) kill 25 man Malygos. that was exciting. then the next day we had 25 online for 25 man Ulduar for the first time. last couple weeks FL and razorscale have been as much as we could 20 man. ignis and XT we just didn't seem to be able to get. this week with all 25 on we managed to down both and get our heroic: seige of ulduar cheeve. downside is we're not the top 10 man guild anymore cause that bumped us to 25 man status according to guildox. but its great to be making progress even it its late and slow.

worst part was I was there on my healer pally so my main didn't get the cheeve lol. oh well, next week.

This may seem somewhat silly to the rest of you, or those of you with more experience, but I sure enjoyed it.

I was messing around on my paladin, questing a bit in SP when a guildmate asks if I can tank what they haven't finished in reg. HoS (my paladin is 78), because the 80 DK they had tanking just bailed, and they'd wiped on this boss four times. Dunno the name, its the big rock guy that turns you to stone.

I've never run HoS before, this was my first time ever seeing the inside of that instance. I charge in, and while the rogue is in another window looking up strategies to defeat him, we stomp a mudhole in him and he dies. I was pretty happy, especially since the DK that was tanking before had left my guild a few months ago..sweet sweet justice!

It's probably a better bonus for PvP, though..

Valorous Redemption Helm
Libram of Radiance

Also in about 3 hours I will be able to finally get my Darkmoon Card: Greatness! after spending a great deal of time, effort, and money making cards.

So pretty good day for my Ret Pally.

Finally decided to get serious about picking up an arena weapon, found a new partner (feral druid) and hit 1850 as prot healadin spec. Right now feral is using black ice from 10 man malygos, so when he gets the points (1-2 weeks) for his furious with berskerking he'll just be able to pump so much more pressure out. Our MMR has been 1950-2050 since we started the team from scratch, so we still have room to improve, and that's with his 201dps weapon with 85 attack power. Once he gets 232dps with zerking we'll see how high we can push.



edit - hit 2115 last night, and joined a 3v3 team with a really good DK on my server. Joined a PVP guild where all our servers top PVPers hang out (lol we're a pretty bad server though).

Making a bit of a push for Gladiator this week, unfortunately moving IRL, won't get games in next week, and trying to balance time between packing, work, 2v2 and 3v3. I think if we weren't limitted by time we could do it, especially in 2v2. But it probably won't happen..maybe next season.

I now have 4 pc T8 for both my ret and Holy sets. gonna work on 2 pc t9 ret. not sure if I want more than that for ret and if I want any t9 holy gear.... I love the holy t8 4 pc bonus.

last noght took a kind of random group (whoever happened to be online) to ToC 10 man. took a few tries, but we got the first 'boss' encounter down. didn't have time for more than 3 tries on Jax, but we're gonna head back later this week to get him. i'm sure we'll get it - i'm a beast of a healer.... and humble too i'm told. I sense no sarcasm... ;) oh yeah, everyone else in my group was pretty good too....

no nasty comments about me healing either.... my guild has been short on healers lately and plenty of dps, so unfortunately my ret pally has been called on to heal quite often (by myself - not sure if that really counts as being called on...)

anyway, been good times in raiding lately.

Got my Libram of Valiance last night.

http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47661

The str is up pretty much all the time. It leaves me in a bit of a quandry though. I'm not sure if its worth switchign to SoR on trash.

Prelim testing in Uld 25 last night seems like it may be worth it to make two sets of gear in Item Rack. One with i226 AOE Divine storm libram and SoR for trash and then another for Libram of Val + SoV on bosses.

Still its a badd **** libram for 25 triumph emblems so I am stoked.

Done the Faction Champions in ToC 25...

I followed Raid Leader's instructions, bubbled and divine sacrificed when I was told to. Then the priest dispelled my bubble almost instantly... insta killed by the raid damage.
