Normally, Monday is Throw Screenshots At The Blog Day, but I didn’t get around to properly editing the screenies, so today…you get the Adventures of the Fail Tree.
My baby druid only has 4 buttons. A HoT, a smallish heal thingy with another HoT, Swiftmend, and Healing Touch. HT has quickly become equated with Greater Heal in my mind-it’s a thing that I try not to cast too often, because it’s slow as fuck. Big, but slow. The adjustment part comes from not having a little heal to spam in its place-it became a game of wiggling around and wondering if Swiftmend would come off CD in time. Sometimes the mage died. Sorry, mage. AoE less?
I feel comfortable enough healing 5 mans by now, but I have discovered a massive problem with playing a tree. See, I throw my HoTs on the tank and then I…wait. During those long seconds of waiting I get distracted-by my cat, my party chat, or by guild chat discussing whether or not spit is a good enough lube for anal sex.
No really, we had that discussion. I screen shotted it and everything!
So I get distracted, and I start typing, right? Standing there…typing…not following the group. And then the tank runs ahead and pulls another 2-3 packs of mobs, and I go OH SHIT, and I don’t have penance to make up for my lollygagging anymore so…SPLAT goes the tank.
Because I was typing.
I think that maybe I need a Swiftmend maco of Amber Wasn’t Paying Attention, because this is going to be a long haul to 80…

(To explain the title, aside from the obvious: my poor little druid was dubbed Psychiatree. Because I need some, see, after having that many healers…)
