So last night was our first Naxx run since “the change”. I also ran with two healers I’ve never run with before-our disc priest, Preamus, and a new resto druid. Kysomething. Her name is Amy, so let’s just go with that. Amy and Ron were my healing crew, and we cleared all but Spider + Sapph/KT.
It was a good run. Supporting a “weaker” 3rd healer was no problem since Ron and I are teh win and could probably 2 heal it, and our DPS was teh win so it was cake. It was nice to have someone to throw the spellpower leather at. I had to retrain myself to work with a druid raid healer though, and not FoL snipe all her work.
My overhealing shot through the roof, but I didn’t notice the Divine Plea nerf at all. If I had mana troubles, it was because Steve forgot to swap the Sanct buff over to Wisdom for me. Even then I coped-I’m good at pulling heals out of an empty mana bar.
It was the changes to seals that screwed me up more than anything. I’d glance down at my bars, ready to rebuff it and…it was still there! Holy shit! I spent all night tripping out over it, and/or rebuffing it unnecessarily. I think that Kyrilean summed it up well while I was talking his ear off today:
DP – not a problem. Annoying, but not a problem.
Seals?! Major problem. I keep casting it every 90 secs!!
Only he said it with less capital letters than that, but I’m a nice copy editor, too.
So in short: nerf? What nerf?
