Jul 19th 2009 5:17PM I'm a relative noob to healing. My healer is a Shaman. I find healing one of the most challenging aspects of the game to date. On of my challenges is to use the right spell at the right time and not cause too much, if any, of an over-heal. I PUG a lot. I like to conserve my mana pool as much as possible.
I PUG a lot. So, it depends on the gear of the group as to whether or not I have to do a lot of "Oh CRAP!" heals that constantly over-heal. Yes, over-healing is preferable to people dieing, for sure! But, I get a very satisfied feeling when I cast the right heal at the right time and didn't cause over-heal.
May 12th 2009 8:49AM I leveled a hunter to 70 then stopped. Personally, I think the class is B-O-R-I-N-G. There's not much creativity that comes in to play unless you are tasked to do some crowd control. There is a pitiful amount of procs that you have to watch for that would force you to change your standard rotation. Last, and I think the worst part of being a hunter, is standing waaaaaaay away from the fight (outside of melee range). You rarely have to move any significant amount. Yawn. In my opinion, it's much more challenging to keep your DPS up when you have to move constantly.
Mar 16th 2009 8:10AM I can really respect a guild that makes its officers compete for a slot in the upcoming Ulduar content.
What makes me nervous is the first day of joining a new guild. It's just like the first day of going to a new school: new people, new teachers....you don't know really what to expect.
Mar 1st 2009 8:33AM Major FAIL on my part when I had listed some online resources in my post. I forgot to mention WoWInsder (duh!) as a great source of information.
Mar 1st 2009 8:05AM What we, as noobs, fail to do is to look at the resources that are close at hand:
* Guild members
* Online resources, such as: WoWWiki.com, WoWHead.com and web sites that specialize in your class.
All it takes is some time and a wee bit of effort.
