So last night my beloved Spacegoat trotted into Naxx25 for the first time. I managed to not die a lot, which pleased me greatly. We cleared 3 wings, and I found Loatheb a much more enjoyable fight to heal as a priest. For that fight, I shuffle healers around so that there’s one per group (and a spare, in this case). Everyone was responsible for their group and the other healer shored up whoever looked like they needed it. Prayer of Healing made the job a cinch compared to the method I used as a holy pally, which was “heal the lowest 2/3 and sacred shield the others”. Whoever said “Oh you can cast holy light and with the glyph, not worry about healing the rest of the group!” is living on some other weird fucking planet. I’d also penance whoever looked to be in the most danger, though I’d occasionally lose a pulse, it looked like. Grrr.
It was weird, being the undergeared one. I blithely ignored the healing meters-we had two excellent trees along with us, anyway, and nothing leaves me more bored than good resto druids. Our healing team is actually really strong these days and I’m pleased as fuck about it. Regardless, I hope that the Naxx10 we have planned for this weekend will drop more epics on me. It’s not that I’m not “fine” for Naxx in the gear that I have (18oo sp, wee!)-just that I got somewhat spoiled by Ambrosyne’s good luck and quick gearing, because the competition for spellpower/crit plate is nothing compared to the same for cloth. Damn mages! I find myself reluctant to spend DKP on something that, while an upgrade, might keep me from getting that BiS item that could drop on the next boss…gaaaah. I need to stop that.
And yes-Ambrosyne is still holy. With her gear intact. While she will likely go tankadin once again for me, just because, she’s been holy for too much of her career for me to permantly put that aside. But April Fool’s being what it was, I had to toss out something, and I figured that was more believeable than going ret. ;)
For now, I’m the only disc priest-Ron is away. But when he’s back I’ll start experimenting with making the most of having two in a raid.
