Grats, Moz. That boss looks like he has scary feet. I would not like to be staring at those feet three nights a week. Glad you're moving past them.

I took down my rival.

By rival, I mean "One of the only Priests I've seen around town with gear better than my own who probably had no idea I existed."

Basically, Shadow Priests are few and far between on my server, so when I happen to end up in a group with one, I like to make it into a competition between us.

And when the #1 guild Horde-side's Shadow Priest fell into our ToGC 10 run, I was excited. I pulled up simcraft and ran a few simulations. Theoretically, he should do more dps than me. Not a huge margin, but more.

I did more than him.

It wasn't a fluke, either. Every fight ended with me on top. Sometimes it was close, by only about 300 dps, other times I came out ahead by as much as 600.

But I did more dps than the Priest from the Horde-side best guild on the server. I guess it just goes to show that skill > gear a lot of the time. I'm not saying that I'm "better" than the guy, just that I might have brought my A game while he was having an off day. Or something.

Now I just need to focus on getting 4pc T10. I can't break my T9 2pc bonus until I do. -_-

Though it doesn't really feel like an accomplishment, we downed Valithria on 10-man (and got her to 96% on 25). A soddy fight that one is for priests, as you're nowhere near as effective on it as any other healer, even if you specifically spec for it.

Also, Fishboy, grats - I know what you mean here, I try and compare myself to other random healers all the time as well =P

Just watched the vid for Val and I think it's obvious that priests should focus on keeping the raid alive more than the other healers and help healing Val when possible.
It's not a fight where priests are going to shine by topping the healing meters, I'd rather stay disc and make sure people don't die.

I've been wanting to do this for weeks...

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!
Putricide on 10 is down! And so is Lana'thel! And Sindragosa (which seems ridiculously easy to me) has been brought to 20% without us actually trying or knowing wtf to do in the soft-enrage phase. This puts our guild at 10/12 in IcC-10, with only 20% on Sindragosa and Mr. Menethil himself to go. On 25-man we're still stuck in the position we've been for some time now; 7/12. On the bright side, we haven't actually tried Putricide or Lana'thel yet on that difficulty, and we've gotten Valithria up to 96%, so we do expect to tackle those encounters fairly easily as soon as we get a chance to progress in 25-man again instead. All in all a good week for raiding in our guild.

So what do you do if your Main tank and off-spec healer are internetless?

You down Marrowgar with 8 players. And Deathwhisper. And the gunship battle. And you solo heal Saurfang.

*Breaks through a wall*

OH YEAH!


Right, on to Blood Elf Council...

One more zone done toward Loremaster.

Well, that was weird. Questing in Borean Tundra and the world started to shake for a few seconds....

In the Tundra, or in the real world? In either case, I hope it wasn't the Fel Reaver approaching...

LOL, in the Tundra. I think Blizzard will ramp up some in game happenings as Cataclysm approaches.

This. Stuff like this has been happening sparcely all over the in-game world, it's most likely a precursor to the Cataclysm.

EveryQuest is the greatest thing since sliced bread and only slightly less great than Teacake.

True story.

I dunno, I'd say it's much greater than me. At least it does something cool and useful. I'm just sitting here eating a muffin when I should be working.

Grats on Loremaster, Dadanox! That is a seriously admirable achievement. Talk about time and patience.

I downed Sindragosa o/

Our guild already had her down but it was a first for me. I am now officially knock knock knockin' on Arthas' door. It seems a fairly... 'simple' fight for healers in at least P1 and P2 (and the transitions). It doesn't feel so effing annoying as Yogg-Saron's first phase and it's not like I have to spamheal the living **** out of myself like on Festergut. I really like it so far.

My guild has been kind of stuck on Rotface for a bit. We are mainly older players who never sought out Arthur Murray, so we have some coordination issues. >.>

We were very optimistic this week about our prospects in ICC. The extra buff helps of course, but I think it was more of everyone having absorbed the fight and knowing what to do. After we cleared the the first wing, we get the weekly that requires you to kill Festergut and Rotface back-to-back. Oh well, we thought, no free emblems this week.

We down Fester and move on to Rotface. We engage and everything is going nicely. We lost a dps around 50% to... heck I don't know, he just died.=/ We are pressing on, the dance going faster and faster until we we realize that the boss is under 10%. Everyone digs in, a couple more drop, the boss drops to under 5%. Vent has gone eerily quiet as we are pressing in for the kill... He drops to 4%, 3%, oh crap, only 2 dps left up...

We got him down to 2% before we wiped and immediately knew that this was Rotface's swan song. We downed him on the next attempt and then it dawned on us... we almost accomplished the weekly that none of us felt was remotely possible for us to achieve.

I hope we get it again next week. =)

Try;

Rotface is all about the mindset. I don't quite remember where I read it, but some page said that "Because of the incredibly speed you'll have in the last two minutes of the fight ******* WILL happen, it really is about dealing with them rather than trying to avoid them at that point". The fight is in that view similar to Heigan - if your healers are decent you'll be able to last past the five minute mark, up to even six minutes. DPS tends not to be the problem, but the mindset your members need to have for that fight.

I totally agree. It isn't a terribly difficult fight. It's like learning ballroom dancing, the steps are simple and straightforward. Oom - pa - pa, Oom - pa - pa... then the band looks at each other and starts going a bit faster. Oom-pa-pa, Oom-pa-pa... Then the guy on the accordion giggles and steps it up even further. OompapaOompapaOompapa until we fall down and go boom.

*edit- because bait and switch is much funnier

Grats on that! I hope to be able to report my own LK king (10-man, though) tuesday. Fingers crossed for the right people being available, the other priest signing unavailable and us downing him.

I bought Dual Spec on my priest today and (oh disgrace!) offspecced Shadow.

Tried it on a level 70 target dummy and did some 1380 DPS or so. I'm 73 at the moment. This is so much harder than healing! I forget what I'm supposed to do about once every 10 seconds and mess up. If more than stand and shoot is involved, I'll be lost! And to think that I used to be a respectable shadow priest back in 2007...

Congratulations.

I find having shadow as an off spec is useful as an option when soloing. Also, it lets me come in as dps when guildies want to bring their healing alts into a 5 man for practice.


edit: For my accomplishment tonight, I made my Chopper. It's a pretty sweet ride.
