Jan 9th 2008 8:35PM as a holy priest, with dungeon/raid healing gear, healing is pretty much all i'm good for in the BG's. mind you, that's no complaint, as healing is what i enjoy most in WoW. nothing makes me happier in a BG, win or lose, than seeing myself at the top of the heal chart... it means i was out there doing my job and doing it well. though i do often sacrifice raw numbers in order to heal those holding an objective, and that's a sense of accomplishment in itself. rather than additional quests for healers, i'd simply like to see an accurate translation of my healing done into honor. it's hard for me to tell if my heals have anything to do with the honor kill/honor point totals.
meawhile, on the anecdotal side, i once healed a WG that lasted for an hour, and was so far up on the healing list (190k to the next top's 35k, while on D for the duration), that the horde began hunting in in groups, for sport... meanwhile i nearly always had allies that came running when i and our flag were in danger. and we won, which most people would cry never happens. one of my most epic pvp experiences ever.
in short: healers keep the battle going!
Sep 3rd 2007 11:26AM most of my names are awful, just some more than others...
i once had an undead mage named dripdripdrip (think dave chapelle), and a paladin named mustachewax (i had a dave attel bit in my head).
then there was my unstoppable mexican trio: juanshue, pacogumm, and manuelhung... i'm a sucker for a pun
and finally, one of my guildies convinced me to roll an alt named obijuan (juanshue is my main, so people usually just called me juan) as a joke... i have a screen capture of a quest giver in the dranei start zone telling me "obijuan, you're our only hope" i kid you not
Aug 27th 2007 3:37PM perfectly valid points, but acknowledge that some people's personalities do make them more prone to addiction, and something viewed as a fun distraction from reality for most of us becomes an obsession for them...
Aug 14th 2007 1:11PM an epic battle, at a place like lakeshire where there's a bridge to hold...
/yell "HOLD THIS BRIDGE!!"
Aug 10th 2007 11:12AM btw way, feedback kicks ass when you learn how to use it right... especially with discipline spec (reflective shield FTW!)
Aug 9th 2007 9:04PM i'm all for racial priest abilities, myself... the variousl races serve different gods/forces, so it makes sense that those religions would bestow diverse gifts on their priesthood. keep the races separate, but balanced, so that each continues to have their own appeal and place in the grand scheme. when i rolled a human priest, i knew nothing about racial abilities, i just related to humans (hmm, i wonder why?) and had gotten sick of the teldrassil quests. after finding out that starshards was unique to elves, arcane feedback to humans, etc., i was stoked to realise there was something that made my priest different than my forsaken counterparts, other than having a lower jaw.
whatever you do, blizzard, for the love of the holy light DON'T get rid of desparate prayer!!!!!!
Aug 8th 2007 6:31PM paladins wearing cloth? That never happens!
Aug 2nd 2007 11:35AM i was going to point out the HP Lovecraft connection, but you beat me to it...
as a priest of the light, i think that holy light, forgotten shadow, voodoo, and elune-worshipping priests should all have different abilities, as they are calling upon different souces for their power and using them for different ends. it's always irked me a little that they're all the same, aside from a few racial spells
