After taking most of the weekend off from recruiting due to Macharious making us be social/trying to kill us via bowling, I sat down last night and poked through wowlemmings.
It seems like the flavor of the week is “I want guilds clearing Naxx25 and Sarth 3 drakes!”
I really wish there was some designation between “hardcore” and “casual”. Hardcore seems to be what I mentioned above. Casual seems to be “we can clear two wings of Naxx on a good week.” Where’s the “we make decent progress and take things semi-seriously without wanting to raid 5 nights a week” group?
Semi-soft core porn ?
We’re not that awesome but we don’t suck that bad?
I think I might start asking those who pug the 25 man scene a lot who they’re noticing in their raids. It’s just as valid an idea as running circles around Dalaran and seeing who is guildless (seriously, I netted 3 people doing that thanks to Mach being observant).
In ur pugs, poaching ur people…
In other news, I wish I’d stop seeing newly-holy’d paladins going, “so I read that holy light is the new bread and butter heal for paladins…”
It’s noooot. Oh maybe for some fights. Maybe for 5 mans. Maybe when the tank takes an OMG spike. But why should we spam HL just because we can?
Do I spam HL in 10 man OS with two healers? Yeah. I tend to. Do I spam HL in Naxx10 with three healers? Except for certain fights, no. Does this make HL my bread and butter heal? Nooooo.
I understand that it’s in part a style thing. For a healing class of “limited” variation, there’s any number of healing styles open to us. So I really, really wish that people would see healing as situational, and not “I push button X all the time!”
Funny, that reminds me of CoH priests…
Dear 58 UD rogue:
72 disc priest > you. Do not LOOK at levels before you start stabbing things?
