Got to add, he was rubbish. The mage in that group, named "Chûcknòrrïs" or something like that, wasn't much more useful.

That is actually a bit more funny, though.



More accomplishments:

My then-25 priest duo'd RFK with a level 32 ret pally today. It was awesome. My damage was only around 20% though, and that after I nearly got the same amount of damage of another ret pally in the run before that while healing properly. I <3 my Smite Glyph.

We went into Alduar for the weekly raid daily. Since we were there, we decided to try some bosses we hadn't done previously. We got Hodir down. It was a fun fight. Today we are supposed to go in on our alts with other guild members needing the weekly. It's gonna be ugly.

Grats on Hodir! Are you bringing a healing alt, or some kind of crazy DPS machine? Sometimes I crave a non-healing character. But then I try to do DPS and suck so, so badly at it.

So I was pretty bored on my priest and decided to farm some Dragonfin Angelfish, to raise my skill and a chance for the Sea Turtle.

Not in-game, but I finally stopped procrastinating and worked on my Physics project. Building a bridge that has to hold at least 200 pounds is painful. It's even worse when you have to make it completely out of paper.

So my random heroic was Violet Hold, Since it's so boring to heal that I've ran circles doing/train emotes for most of the instance before and more shenanigans like that I decided to go spec into my PvP spec and try dpsing a bit.
We had some bad dps so I actually had to heal a bit, but this is the result from Cyanagosa:
Screenshot


Dk and the other priest were our tank and Shadowpriest respectably.



I should get Smite Glyph and maybe I'll even go for a laugh and respec to a full on Smite Spec for my offspec for a while to see if I can pass 2.5k, or even get 3k dps on bosses.
And as visible in the chatwindow, I didn't have any hit gear on me except for what I have in my PvP gear which I couldn't all use.

I wasn't wearing my shadow gear. Smiley: tongue

The other priest was, but I think his gear was something like all mid 70's greens with one piece of T9 and a few leveling blues, all unenchanted and with little hit and such.

You forgot to mention that that shammy wasn't exactly a random, either.

Also, need to mention that Æth and me received a "The tank and healer are OP" (with slightly worse spelling) from a group member after topping the damage meters in a random instance (SM:Cath, I believe?). I'm sad because in Maraudon, the DPS actually mostly out-DPS me. Smiley: frown

Also, as soon as I have duel spec, I will probably go Disc/Smite. My money actually got less due to it being weekend, though.

I have turned 4 guildies away from healbot to Vuhdo this week! :)

It started with just one healer who was curious about how it differs from HB. They jumped in vent with me, expecting it to be a difficult long drawn out event. I went through a couple basics and sent them on their way to a battleground to test it.
"Wait... What do you mean I'm done? It only took me 10 minutes..."

I think it was the *lack* of explanation on how to set Vuhdo up that convinced the others to give it a go. :) The author should give me a tip.

I am a Disc priest now. Will try out the spec on Æth tomorrow.

Now I'll have to sort through my 3.5 sets of equipment to gear for SP and Intellect instead of pure Spirit/MP5, and vendor all the MP5 gear.

Meh, 95% of my heals are PW:S and Renew anyway. That shouldn't change at all.
What I'm interested in seeing is if my mana efficiency will change for the better and by much my DPS will drop (longer Holy Fire and Smite casts vs. more Spell Power and hopefully mana efficiency).

Well yes, I'm not saying you'll suddenly get a hard time or anything - I just meant that it would be rather odd to keep the tank up by solely spamming Flash Heal as the only time when I have to resort to that is the time when it's throughput isn't enough and the tank dies anyway.

Wait, what?

I think my healing over the last 5-10 levels for pulls of less than 3 groups was roughly 65% Renew, 25% PW:S, 5% FHeal and 5% other stuff (Holy Nova spam, lolPoH).

I assume PW:S will take much prevalence now and I'll hopefully be able to cast even less FHeal.

So I guess I don't know what you're trying to say, Moz. :P

Is it about the efficiency of Flash Heal? Without Divine Fury, I'm pretty sure FHeal is higher than GHeal in both HPS and HPM at this level, especially with the glyph.



I am actually keeping my Smite Glyph. I've got FHeal glyphed as well because the Renew Glyph is **** (especially when the tank's taking as little damage as Aeth is).

Actually, I am just wondering about glyphing. I don't really expect healing Aeth to get much harder pre-80 and he is complaining about never having any use for his cooldowns, so glyphs making my heals stronger seem sort of pointless, especially since I prefer learning half serious healing over EZ mode healing any day of the week.
I might just get the Holy Nova glyph for the lulz.

Also, peeps over at EJ don't really seem to agree whether it's worth it to glyph Penance or not. What do you guys think?

I can't really blame you, I'm barely making sense to myself, reading back =P

What I meant was that whenever tank healing actually gets difficult (which for 80s is on hard hitting bosses in raids) you'll get your Penance on cooldown (and PW:S and Renew are already up) and have to spam Flash Heal to keep the tank up. Without Penance, your rotation in these situations would go from "PW:S>Renew>Penance>FH>FH>FH>Penance" to "PW:S>Renew>FH>FH>FH>FH>FH>FH>FH>FH ad nauseam" which, to me, having been 80 for so long, would feel pretty weird. But you're completely right; pre-80 about 95% of your healing in groups is done through shielding and you should never even get to the situation where you-have-to-use-penance-but-can't-so-have-to-spam-flash-heal, and looking at what will change for your DPS is a lot more interesting.

That said;

As a tank or as a healer? In the case of the latter, he has to lower his standards for when to use them. I was in that situation once when we got a priest in my guild who used Guardian Spirit on anybody who went below 20% rather than saving it for 'that time the tank got low' which never occurred. Seeing him do that made me figure that the smart move if you're never using your cooldowns (as a priest) is to simply use them earlier to make your life a lot easier.

Quote:

They changed that, though, didn't they? Iirc it's 20% healing and damage now, which is really meh. Worth it for AOE grinding or something though, I suppose.

Quote:

Well, for one, before you even get Penance, I'd say it's definitely not worth it. Aside from that... it actually depends. At first the mere suggestion of getting rid of the glyph seems folly, but then you realize you will probably never do solo tank healing (and if you do you won't be able to keep the tank up in the encounters where it matters, regardless) and that the primary use for Penance is to quickly heal up raid targets who are getting hit by abilities like Bone Spike - and that damage barely occurs as much as once per half a minute. I reckon one needs to look at the alternatives. This quickly there isn't anything better I can think of, so I guess I'll be sticking with it.

Or where you purely referring to a leveling situation? In that case I'd get it purely for using Penance as a damaging spell.

Edit stole ma spellingz.

Yeah, I haven't healed with a priest in a raid setting since, I think, summer 2007? I haven't raided at all in nearly two years.
I remember shield being much less important back then and of course Penance didn't even exist. I don't think Flash Heal was all that good back then, either.

As a tank. The problem is that there isn't much use for tank CD's if you're constantly sitting above 90% health, like, ever. As a healer, I use the few CD's I have so far enough, I'd say (although I lost Desperate Prayer with respeccing and abuse Inner Focus to get Holy Fire crits, mostly), which should leave him with even less reason to ever use any of his. I am looking forward to our first few heroics in comparably crappy gear.

Yeah, there just isn't much else I can glyph, really, before I can get Penance. It's just that glyphing PW:S seems kind of pointless, at least until instances start getting hard enough to bother getting any healing glyphs.

Also, I am leveling nearly purely in instances now. I did one quest today, and that was the robot chicken one.

To be honest, there's no alternative for Penance glyph so the whole discussion is moot.
I mean, there's PW:Shield, Penance, PoH, Flash Heal and Renew as far as glyphs go.

Flash heal glyph is weak once you get some decent gear, renew glyph is pretty weak and the PoHealing glyph isn't very strong either.
I'd say there's simply no other option than going Penance, Shield, Flash heal until you get some decent gear and the switch to Penance, Shield, PoH.

Joined a random dungeon group on my priest at level 50, ended up in Blackrock Depths. We only had to kill one boss for the random dungeon loot, but we decided to finish the whole place. We had to boot one hunter because he was ninjalooting, ninjapulling retard. So there was 4 of us, the highest level was 52, I was the only one with BoA gear, and we managed to complete the whole of BRD without any wipes. It felt pretty epic when we finally managed it. I also dinged twice inside the dungeon which was useful.

Joined a random on my priest, was H ToC the healer had quit after a fail attempt at Paltress. She died fast.

Then the Black Knight.

P1 was fine, then the tank started taking waaay to much damage during P2 and died.

I healed through it.

A rogue tanked most of P3, the lock died towards the end but me and the mage made it through to the end.

The group acknowledged my pure awesomeness.

I don't really have any, other than I grinded out a lot of feathers. I would consider it an accomplishment right now if I could cast Penance without going "F&*k where the F&*kity F&*k is the F&*king Penance key?" Yay for my new G13! Boo for anything that makes me learn!

OMG PENANCE!!

Finally dinged 63 to get Penance **** Spirit Tap stealing my Disc Points) and I cant believe I ever got by without it. Heals for more than Greater Heal, is instant cast and costs half the mana... It is insane.

Also Northrend Gems in Outland gear... Awesome. Five levels to Northrend, I expect to get most of them in dungeons. The deathtards calling themselves tanks makes it so easy for a healer to get a group.

Oh, I tried out my Disc spec as both healer and DPS now.

Healing is about the same, my mana lasts a tad longer but not by too much. This is still good because I changed my gear around a lot and lost more than 15% of my i5sr mana regeneration, so with my old gear, my mana regeneration would be pretty insane now.

DPSing didn't go over so well. I actually didn't run OOM faster than usual even without Spirit Tap because my casts take so **** long now! The drop in damage done was much more severe than I had expected. Not even having two haste cooldowns that were up for every bossfight helped that much. I would estimate my potential DPS to have dropped by some 25%, which would be a lot.

I'm actually considering dropping Power Infusion because if I need haste, I can just use my racial. I need to remember to put it on mages or something.


Also, finally got Prayer of Fortitude. <3


Edit: After having played priests since I started the game, I learned the word for Smite in my own language today, and it's a deal breaker. If I wouldn't use the English version of WoW, I'd probably play shadow or a different class. Or not at all. Looking at the translation for Mind Flay, that's not much better. Mage spells seem to sound the least stupid, but God, I wouldn't be able to play the game like that.

So, my guild took a few weeks hiatus from raiding during and after the christmas holiday, we finally get back into the swing of raiding. In order to get as many people geared for 25 ICC as possible, our guild leader decided to get 3 10-man groups going, which stretched our resources a little thin, and most raids we could only get past the 1st 4 bosses in our allotted time(8-11), with enough time to pull one or two mobs for rep after Saurfang.

Well the rest of the officers got together and decided that we should only be running 2 10-mans that way we would have a more solid group get past the first wing, and start progressing through the rest of the wings which a lot of people haven't even seen yet. Plus with 2 groups we have a better chance of getting in there again later in the week than when having 3 groups plus a 25 man.

So anyway, my accomplishment isn't much, but after only making one attempt in the past (when the bosses were first released), we finally got festergut down last night. Plus I was tank healing during the fight, as holy. I was nervous at first, but it went pretty smoothly.

That's the beauty of the new system. You don't have to pug to get the benefits. Even a social guild can gather its members for a nightly random heroic. Just get your guild group together and join as a group. You still get your emblems of Triumph and Frost. This benefits not only you, but your guild as a whole.

If your guild isn't doing a random nightly heroic or two for mains and alts, then start the tradition.

me: "OK, random guild heroic starting in a couple minutes. Who wants in?"
me: "Act now, this opportunity won't last long. Bring your main or bring an alt, but come for the fun!!"

I'm usually heals, so we have a couple possibilities for tanks on their mains or an alt. DPS is pretty easy to fill up, and we can always pug one dps if we have to, or wait a bit for another guildie to come online. As long as we have guild heals and tanking, It doesn't "feel" like a pug, even if we pull in one random dps.

I looked at my Emblems of Triumph and spent about 50 on any remaining reputations I could bring to exhalted with them. I still have around 150 stockpiled.

There are three people in my guild, one of whom is my next of kin. I take this stranger danger thing very seriously. I wouldn't even play with you.*

But your point stands. Smiley: grin This dungeon tool is really a great thing for making sure new players/alts just hitting 80 can still get into endgame PVE if they want to. I remember how hard it used to be (when I had a real guild) if you wanted to change mains, to get up to speed so you could raid with your friends. I know there's a downside with the whole gear score obsession, but the easy access to gear at least means people who want to play together can.

There's very little that can go wrong and if something goes wrong it's not like you'll see those people again so it's not important.


That was my theory with my hunter that just hit 80. If I suck at DPS, it's unlikely I will see these people again, so if they think I suck because my DPS is low due to my gear, it doesn't matter because I probably won't see them again.

Sadly though in my first heroic, and many others that followed, my hunter, sans the triumph shoulders(originally had the BoA shoulders) and heroic drops, was doing 2k+ dps on the bosses and was competitive with the other DPS that had twice the level of gear.

Meh. If I were more interested in the dungeons themselves, I would (and will, as the whim strikes - I HAVE pugged, I just don't do it often). I do have fun if I'm hanging out with friends, but a big shiny pile of badges isn't appealing enough for me to feel like doing the same fight the same way over and over again with people I don't even know and am not laughing with. There's just never a night where I think, "Yeah, of all the things I could be doing, that is the one I choose."

YOU CAN DO EEEEEEETT!



Edit: I don't think I have ever ordered pizza.
It's ridiculously expensive and I prefer just cooking my own food.
And I'm just as much of a wuss IRL, it takes me half a day to gather up the courage for an important phone call. Smiley: blush

Edit: Find a tank to heal, or roll a tank and find a healer and talk over skype while leveling in dungeons.
It's guaranteed fun.

Are you saying you'd have this much fun with any healer? </3



Also, a not so priestly achievement but I went to Soton today and met this guy who's working on his PhD thesis about squaric acid derivatives. Squaric acid! Stuff like this is why my one true love in this world will always be organic chemistry.

I said it's fun with any healer/tank combo.

Good neeeeews everyone!

8/12 in ICC25 with Blood-Queen left, and 9/12 in ICC10.

Also, our 10man group pulled their tumbs out of their asses and finished Algalon and Yogg+1, so now I finally have my 310 % mount. Feel great being done with that place, only got "not dieing on yogg" to complete our Conqueror of Ulduar.

I typed up a Shadow guide for my guild forums. There are some priests who shall remain unnamed that really need it.

Well, it took us long enough, but...
Funnily enough, we had people in our group that got literally 6 achievements from that one kill.

Also, this gave me sads... =(
