Imba Healing

SiamatLast night the group I ended up running Lost City of the Tol’vir with had the most unfortunate luck with tanks. We wiped on the first group of mobs due to the tank having connection issues, and only just scraped through the second group before we decided to give him no more chances. Our next tank left after the first boss, third tank lost connection on the run up to mobs to the third boss and the forth tank left just as we were about to start Siamat as he didn’t get the drop he wanted from the boss before.

During all this we were quite fortunate the DK had a tanking off-spec which was enough for trash but without the gear we didn’t want to risk trying a boss.

After the lengthy run we thought we may aswell give Siamat a go otherwise we would just be standing around waiting. The fight began pretty smoothly however with the tank taking more damage than usual and with 1 less dps the adds spawning were beginning to take their tole on the rest of the group which stretched my healing and drained my mana pretty fast. Before phase 2 I had already become oom so with the druid’s innvervate on CD I wipped out my shadowfiend. This managed to squeeze me though to phase 2 where innvervate made its appearance. A few AoE heals and the group was topped backed up in time to nerf the boss to oblivion. Needless to say I pulled in quite an applause from the group which made this experience one of my most favourite healing times to date.

Healing is addicitive!

Recently I’ve started playing WoW alot again, I’ve never really shy’d away from it just haven’t played it enough to generate content for my blog. My mage has been shelved since I missed the first raiding boat after spending more time playing CSS competitively which is still my first choice in killing free time. However a couple of Saturdays ago my mate came round to keep me company 😉 and we both decided to dust off some old level 60s to dungeon queue together.

He tanked with his Night Elf Warrior while I began to get excited about healing, unfortunately the drive didn’t last long as healing can get verrrrry empty in lower dungeons. Never-less, after the night was up I still had a yearn to go back on. For a few hours each night I found myself running a dungeon or so for my little fix. Before I knew it I had hit 70 leaving my friend behind at 65. Things really began to start getting exciting with the need for constant attention if I wished to keep my group alive.

Other than my healer getting me re-addictive my girlfriend managed to convince me to start a goblin. We spent the best part of one afternoon levelling them up and out of the starting zone but there must be some sort of barrier with me and the horde as its another character to add to under level 15 and never played again pile.
