I have embarked on several WoW related “projects”. I like multi-tasking, apparently.
Fix Lyrandre’s disc gemming!
I robbed the bank and a guildie of four epic SP gems to replace the one in her helm (wtf, it’s my 8.5 helm why did it not have the epic version?) and to put THREE in her belt. THREE GEM SLOTS IN MY BELT. Dear crafted belt, I love you, so so much. Every socket in her healing gear is now effectively red…
Fail less as a shadow priest!
We’ve recently imported a very awesome shadow priest from horde side, who is another co-worker of Mach and Zoja’s. He totally puts me to shame, but that’s alright-I’ll abuse him as my mentor. I’ve started tweaking my shadow gear and will sit in front of a target dummy and try a different rotation at some point…but it’s one thing to look at a list of BiS gear and another to stare at what I HAVE and try to optimize it. Bleh! Still, with our current bounty of excellent healers and a need to 2 heal some fights, it would behoove me to not suck as shadow.
Prepare the huntard!
Jamethera the hunter, my raiding main for a large chunk of BC, is in Serious Leveling Mode. Josh got a bug in his pants in regards to leveling his paladin, so we have every intention of hitting 80 this week. Originally I had her in a leveling spec, but Josh flopped from ret to holy so I went ahead and threw myself into the current BM raiding spec.
The only thing I did not account for was the lack of the hit talent in said spec. Er…maybe that’s fine for those of you in epics, but for me starting out, not so much. Oops! She’s currently in a mix of blues and old epics, but with luck all of those epics will be gone by 80. I’d hate to wear Kara gear into Naxx-I’d hate to be one of those lazy people going “lol carry me through Naxx plox and hand me epics.”
Actually, no, let me rephrase that. I’d LOVE to be one of those people, but a sense of personal pride prevents me. So heroics at 80 it will be until I can at least PRETEND I’m Naxx ready, and THEN I’ll be carried through Naxx and handed epics.
I have every intent on raiding as BM because by the gods, I was BM since before the first hunter talent reset and I’ll be BM when I finally quit. Some day, I’ll also show our other hunters how to top DPS meters without pulling aggro.

Prepare the Warrior!
Lyestra is…still at 78. She’s been 78 for weeks now, because I log on, get lonely, and then log off. In between mad rushes of hunter leveling, I’ll get her to 80 on her new server (O HAI EARTHEN RING), improve her tanking gear, and…well, casually tank things. If my friends on that server are welling to tolerate a scrub, I might even pick up a DPS spec.
