I know, I know: ret pallys faceroll their way to DPS.
I am, apparently, terrible at it anyway-at least in my current rag tag collection of gear. It’s mostly epic but not all goodepics, I’ve still got some blues and a tanking trinket on, one of my rings is a green, and none of it is enchanted. Oh, and I need to work on my two handed mace weapon skill. I will somehow find the time for this between leveling my prot warrior and gearing my hunter and raiding on my priest. H ToC continues to hate me and the boy’s healadin, though, so I can at least continue tanking my way to ret gear. Not that it ever drops it, or the tanking gear I want, but you know…
I’m starting to take my DPS gear seriously because I’m taking my tanking with her seriously-as a perpetual OT it’s a good idea to have a DPS spec ready to go for one tank fights. I want a tank that’s at least passable for whatever our current level of content is “just in case”, as we have a plethora of healers and just enough tanks. That, and I do enjoy paladin tanking. I’d hate to give up my original toon entirely, you know? I’m rather attached to my Ambrosyne.
Tonight I get run home and try to assemble my healing UI before the raid, thanks to my hard drive’ sudden death last night. Can I heal with the default UI? Sure, but I’ll cry a little inside. I did copy over Josh’s WoW folder, though, so I can get a lot of what I need by just sorting through that.
