Dec 9th 2008 2:28PM When you have a reputation as a "good" healer, you get asked to heal all the time. I find it hard to log on some days because I might just want to farm or quest or just do things I enjoy doing in game, but immediately get 10-20 tells from people to heal in both normal and heroic instances. Evenings, I get asked repeatedly to heal in raids, even for guilds I don't belong to. While my guild is relatively small, we have two very good healers (myself and a Circle of Healing Priest) and we are in constant demand. In fact, we two healers really enjoy running together and rarely get to do so, except in raids.
Nov 12th 2008 9:44AM Can't resist the idea of a polar bear mount, although my rolls usually suck.
Apr 30th 2008 4:45PM One of my dearest friends has maintained since the day I met him (myself believing that I royally suck at PVP) that PVP really helps you become a better player. I cannot agree with him more now although I still don't feel I am great at it..it has made a difference in my gameplay!
Apr 28th 2008 5:15PM Are you kidding me?? Rolling a Healer??? In a Kara or ZA Raid, with only 10 people, healers amount to 2 or max 3 people. Depending on the makeup of the group, and the boss you are fighting, getting DCed as a healer can and does wipe raids. Only roll a healer if you have two other extremely competent healers with you that can pick up your slack when you get disconnected or experience lag. Lag is a healers worst enemy!
Apr 19th 2008 11:23AM Aether Rays near Ogrila also drop motes of mana pretty regularly. Not sure of the drop rate, but I always get quite a few when I kill the rays instead of wrangling them.
Apr 9th 2008 8:45AM Definitely wrangling Aether Rays......I can't see when they are attached to the ropes if anything aggros me or if I am getting too close to something...frustrating! Make them go behind the player, not in their immediate field of vision.
Mar 31st 2008 1:31AM Some of us just like the different outfit choices and like to play around with it. I have a friend in game, who we don't quest or raid together, but whenever we get a new outfit, we show each other. We each have banks stuffed with outfits....LOL. A girl can't wear Plate Armor all of the time, even if it is epic.
Mar 25th 2008 12:30PM It's not just Horde that are dis-honorable. I was questing on my new lvl 9 Troll Shammie last night and in the quest where you kill the Maries over by Sen'Jin Village, there was a Lvl ?? flagged Night Elf all alone. He followed me and my questing partner (who happens to be a Conquerer (PVP titled on his lvl 70) who was playing a lower level alt at the time around the whole building. My questing partner said that he was trying to egg lower levels into flagging. He had a sckull on his toon info, so obviously overpowered for a lvl 0-20 questing area.
I think that PVP players come in all flavors as with anything..doesn't matter Horde or Alliance, you will find dishonorable players on both sides. The only thing you can do is stay true to your own morals in game and do what you feel it right.
I like that defuff idea!
Mar 19th 2008 3:22PM Issambard, it isn't an official HoT, but for a few seconds afterwards, it keeps healing which is at least a small HoT, even if it isn't much, sometimes it is enough to make the best out of a situation that could be bad. It grants Fecundity...yes, that give better heals, but it keeps on after the spell hits for about five seconds. It may not be an official HoT, but again, as I stated, it is enough to help.
Mar 19th 2008 2:29PM My best trinket....Ribbon of Sacrifice from Kara. I am a holy pally and that sucker gives me a small HoT, where I wouldn't normally have one. For Tank heals, it can really mean a world of difference. I also have the cannonball runner and one of the best for a pre-outlands Paladin is Linken's Boomerang as it gives you a little ranged to pull mobs.
