Dec 13th 2010 1:25AM I started leveling as holy but the problem was that with each level gained my Exorcism cast time increased. That's why I changed my offspec to retribution - you will notice that the quest rewards you choose from always have only one plate item - that means you can always gather retribution and holy gear at the same time. At level 84 it's significantly faster to level up as ret.
Dec 11th 2010 2:34PM I had a really nice PUG run last night. We had a druid tank who wasn't raiding much in WOTLK and we were really careful about CCing everything (even up to 3 CCs per trash pull). We started with our shadow priest Mind Controlling a mob (and letting that mob be killed by other mobs), then I (holy pala) used Hand of Protection on him and we let other CCs go off. We managed to clear Halls of Origination heroic , Tol'Vir heroic and Grim Batol heroic, for many of us the first time we cleared those instances. The first boss in Grim Batol was one of the hardest cuz our mage kept dying from that charge ability (didn't move out in time), so I had to create a macro to remind her to move when she was targeted.
Surely the best PUG I've had in a long time. :)
