Public Service Announcement: The BEST Patch Evar!

June 29, 2011

Hello!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted regularly, and probably no one comes here anymore except, apparently, for my post about troll and worgen druid forms… weird. Oh well. In any case, I must present to you… THE BEST PATCH IN HISTORY.

What? No! I don’t care about that big scrub, Ragnaros!

Epic feral weapon? Yeah, I suppose that’s cool, too.

Oh, and it changes Cat form to look crazy epic. Meh, you DO see the picture of a bear at the top of this page, right?

You really don’t know what I’m talking about? Really? Wow. Well then, allow me to educate you!

THEY FINALLY DID IT! We can rearrange our character lists!

Always wanted your toons in order from highest level to lowest? Boom. Done.

Most to least played? Easy.

Alphabetically by name? Race? Class?? Yeah, you can do those too.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? Er. Um… That’s actually a really good question, but it probably has to do with my tendency to be OCD. Like srsly. My character list has bothered me for years now, but I haven’t wanted to pay $400+ dollars to do something about it… I’ve only got tendencies toward the deep end; I’m not quite there yet. (Granted, I think Etsu thinks I’m all the way in the deep end. She showed me the rearranging thing and I… well, I believe there was squealing and jumping and lots of maniacal grinning involved. Or something.)

In any case, enjoy rearranging your toons, people, I know I will! ……….. If I can figure out what order the need to be in… Alph- no, er, level- no… DANG.

Healing as a Tank

May 19, 2009

TreeSo, I’ve started actually using my Paw-Paw Bear other spec. It seems that no matter what the status of the “tank shortage” is on other servers, Earthen Ring isn’t part of it. No, what I see most is “LF2M [instance], heals and DPS.” This is a pretty nice thing for Estu and I because it means we can get in on just about anything that’s going down, but it also means that I only get to be a bear while doing dailies… It puts me in a unique position. I hadn’t healed much before this, I think I did one Zul’Farrak run healing at level 50 with healing gear thrown onto my feral build… and In Kara whenever we did Nightbane, invariably the healers would drop one by one and I’d get out of Cat form and give the tank all the mana I had. This is different though, this main healing thing. And today’s post will be some of my observations on learning to heal from the perspective of someone whose first instinct is to be the biggest target of the bunch.
