Jun 14th 2010 2:50AM I used to roleplay a lot as younger girl, mainly in junior high and high school when MUDs and Ultima Online were still new and exciting. I often miss doing it, it was a wonderful way to let out my creative side, but I never felt WoW had a very RP-friendly community.
Were I to get into it again, do you think any of you could recommend some good server for me? The few times I tried RP servers in the past (and this was way back in the early days of vanilla), the experiences left me feeling unsatisfied, and sometimes angry.
Jun 14th 2010 2:47AM I like to go to the Valley of Honor in Org and sit in the middle of the pond. When I'm bored, chatting to a friend, or frustrated and just trying to get some alone time, I go there. I find it calming, and it's pretty much an involuntary action for me now. Before I realize it, I'm sitting in the pond, and everything seems a bit better than it did before.
Jun 4th 2010 2:25AM As a resto druid, I tend to roll hots on the tanks rejuvs on ranged, and wild growth the melee every time it's up. It takes a lot of the pressure off of other healers, especially in fights like Sindragosa or Festergut where raid damage is phenomenal.
I've been healing since we had to run through BRD to get to MC, and my advice to new healers is this: Don't panic. There are so many "oh shit" buttons at your disposal now, use them! Shield that rogue who's about to die, give the other healers that crucial 2 second buffer to keep him alive. Tank is going down? Guardian Spirit, Power Word: Shield, Natures Swiftness + your biggest heal (this should be macroed and hotkeyed), and Lay on Hands! You have these tools at your disposal, don't be afraid of blowing a cooldown if it means the difference between a wipe and progress.
Also: Communicate! Communication is key to a successful raid. Tell people if you're low on mana, tell people if you just blew a cooldown, and tell people if you're not entirely sure what a certain fight entails! Raid leaders would much rather explain a fight before the first pull than to wipe because no one spoke up when asked if they knew the fight, and end up having to explain it all anyway.
If you mess up, don't worry about it. Everyone screws up sometimes, but you should own your mistakes. Let people know that you messed up, you're sorry, and strive to correct those mistakes. Before long, you'll see that healing really isn't as stressful as some people make it out to be, and raiding isn't that complicated at all.
Good luck, and happy healing.

Nov 13th 2008 7:39AM Here's my entry, stood in line but there were no CEs left. :(
Jul 21st 2008 1:07PM I'd hate that... As a healer, I'm focused fired. I imagine my kill to death ratio is abyssmal.
Jul 21st 2008 1:02PM I think this particular author needs to go back to third grade and learn some basic reading comprehension. She said she has 16 hours in a day to fill, not she plays for 16 hours a day.
I've been reading this blog for a long time now, but this post just irks me. Instead of being helpful and answering her question, you question her mental health and parenting skills. Nice. Really nice.
No 2 children are the same. I know my mother had a lot of free time when I was a baby, since I wasn't fussy and preferred to play quietly or sleep, as opposed to my sister who required 24/7 supervision because she'd get into everything she possibly could.
I think you've lost readers today because of your rash judgement and nonexistent reading comprehension. Good game.
