I have, for the time being, decided to hang up my shadow hat.
“Why would you do that, Amber? You LOVE mind sear!”
That I do, that I do. But quite frankly, I suck at shadow. I didn’t always, of course-in Ulduar I used to be, if not uber, at least not fail. If we 2 healed something I did acceptable DPS. If we did heroics, I beat the damn tank in damage.
I…can’t even do that anymore. I somehow got shucked into a random heroic as DPS last night (wut?!) and I…was…below the tank. Not DPS wise, no (aoe lol), but in damage done, yes. I didn’t even break 3k. What the hell. When we tried to 2 heal Saurfang, I went shadow because previously I had the strongest dual-spec of the present healers and…
…no. Just, no. Again, in a RAID, not breaking 3k. I swapped in my hunter and could at least do 3.5k. My lesser geared BM hunter can beat my priest.
Until I can find some way to fix things (not enough haste? Too much else lost in trying to gain haste? Too much cross over gear from disc? I just suck at playing?) I’ve officially unchecked the DPS box.
And I’m a sad panda.
In GOOD news, the sort that makes me warm and fuzzy inside, my guildies shoved gear at me in ToC despite fail!rolls. I have the nifty offhand (a nice upgrade from my Ulduar 10 piece), and two trophys I now need to…farm badges for. XD Maybe some day I don’t be the worst geared priest (main) in the guild. \o/
