Healer Friendly Dailies: Storm Peaks

Let’s state the obvious: doing dailies as a healing spec can be annoying.  Possible, but annoying.  Dual specs should make this a moot point, but I’m not holding my breath.  In the meantime, here’s some dailies that my lazy ass routinely does on my holy pally:

Overstock
This has to be the easiest one.  Located in K3, you just need to lay some bombs in a nearby designated area and blow up 12 mobs.   I tend to stake out a corner and lay them three deep, replacing as used.  Done in a couple of minutes, tops.

Once done there, wander over to Brunhildar Village.  There’s 4 quests out there, 2 of which are cake.  Which one you get depends on what the RNG feels like spitting at you that day.  One of them involves wandering into the mine and smacking 6 exhausted vykrul.  Most of them just mutter at you and move on; the most I’ve ever had to kill was 3.  They don’t exactly hit hard, either.  Another one is Defending Your Title, which requires you to kill 6 vykrul.  It’s right there in the Village-they’re not tough, you don’t have to go anywhere, and you’re not going to pull adds.  Cake.   One I haven’t actually gotten myself yet is Back to the Pit, but most quests involving the special mounts are relatively simple for healers.  All you have to do is spam their own attacks (I said most-we’ll ignore quests like Aces High).

The fourth daily is The Abberations Must Die.  This one doesn’t quite make my healer friendly list (killing things for a potential drop-bleh!, potential for adds) but it’s not entirely unfriendly, either.  If I’m not feeling uber-lazy it’s easy to hang out around the edge of the pools and pick off the required mobs from there until I get the required vials.

    There’s a couple of Ebon ones up in Icecrown that require you to use a Harpoon gun and tame a proto-drake, so they’re healer friendly.

    The Oracles set of dailies in Scholozar are pretty good also. The flightpoint is right there, you get three, make about 40g and can do all three in about a half hour to 45 minutes if you rotate in the zone just right. Plus at revered, you can buy an aged yolk, which has a very small chance to hatch into an epic green proto drake

    Next stop: Icecrown!

    And yes, Shadowtycho-the Village ones are where you (can) get the bear.

    I used to fight the Vykrul that resisted getting smacked around and then one day thought “WTH am I doing?!”

    Run in, look to your right as there often is one seated there. Smack him! If he attacks, ignore him, proceed. Turn to the right and find one there. Turn around run across the room to the other tunnel. Hit up the ones that are necessary and drop through the hole clearing those below as well. Then just run out. You can do it all without fighting any! :)
