I forgot Aedeminar–aka Mina–in my “Now” post, so I thought I would make amends for it by posting her transmog. Although now primarily a healer, Aedeminar will never forget her feral roots, and retains something of a practical streak while still wanting to be “druid-y”. This is her current transmog and I’m rather fond of it.
Helm: Cenarion Helm (actually displayed more often than not, just happened to not be when this shot was taken)
Shoulders: Ravenholdt Shoulders (practical, yet with hints of the purple I want to bring out in this outfit. There’s another, identical set of shoulders you can grab instead, too)
Chest: Malfurion’s Vestments of Conquest (because druid t9 was awesome)
Gloves: Wild Draenish Gloves (because Mina likes purples, but can be easily replaced by another Ravenholdt peice)
Boots: Vicious Wyrmhide Boots (not that they matter much under the robe)
Belt: Arctic Belt
Weapon: Queen’s Insignia (because finding druidy maces on the AH suck and this one was simple and green)
LFR has been kind of me–even while the loot gods extract their payment in simply not dropping the transmog gear I want. Woe. At least I match. I also leveled my druid to 85 and got her to LFR level…and she is yet another healer, ladies and gentlemen. WILD GROWTH ALL THE THINGS. We’ll see if she inherits the LFR loot luck or must flail around being That Healer in PvP Gear for awhile. I seem to be doing much better with my under geared druid than I did my priest at the same gear level–the other day I healed Well with a full guild group where the tank was in DPS gear for giggles. In my pvp blues. What?
Anyway. Lyr. I had her transmogged into t9 but liked this set enough to strip the transmog from it–except for my helm, of course. Halo forever. I think I need a new weapon to really match it, but…well, later. I remain frustrated in my ability to play Word of Dresscraft because the loot gods are just NOT dropping my PRETTY gear.
Except for the druid, who got lucky in Ulduar and landed a lot of the transmog gear I wanted in one shot.
So…by that logic, she is probably screwed for actual gear. Fuck.
Anyway. Hi. I live. Doing LFR as much as I am, surely I’ll have blog fodder…at some point…right?
My priest is now solidly geared, with more pieces of tier than my main (probably because I keep giving away tokens to guildies for their 4 piece….). I am still working on Lyrandre because her DPS shoulders and chest still have to go, but the bulk of my alt-obsession has refocused on my druid.
Poor Aedeminar. She was rolled in vanilla and never got anywhere, really. I can conquor my hatred of questing by tackling the LFD though!
…yeah. We all know what my leveling LFD life is like, don’t we?
There is a REASON she is tank and resto specced. It’s because when she hit Wrath content and Utgarde vomited up all the Tanks Who Were Not Tanks, I said AAAAAAAH FUCKING CUMGUZZLING WHORES and started tanking.
Well, I hit that point again the other day, after healing a couple of really special cookies. So I queued as tank and got Halls of Stone.
Auuugh, but okay. I was pulling cautiously because, come on, it has been a LONG TIME since I have tanked on Mina–at least a year. Shit CHANGED, yo, and I have hardly any idea what I’m doing. At some point, however, I observed that someone was running ahead, grabbing additional mobs, and dragging them back to me.
Hey! Hey, mother fucker, that’s rude! I don’t know if I’m prepared for that shit! Of course the obvious answer is to LET THE IDIOT DIE, but wait.
When I saw who was doing it, I was shocked. IT WAS THE HEALER. THE MOTHER FUCKING PRIEST HEALER.
WHY DO YOU BETRAY ME SO, HEALER? ARE WE NOT KINDRED? DO WE NOT KNOW HOW FUCKING ANNOYING IT IS WHEN SOMEONE DOES THAT BECAUSE THE TANK CAN MISS SOME AND THEN THEY ARE BEATING ON YOU AND OH GOD WHY.
WHY. I CAN’T EVEN LET YOU DIE OUT OF REVENGE, FUUUCK.
And then I saw him using mind sear on single targets and I was just like dear lord, there is just no winning this.
I left Lyr in the image so that you can appreciate this happening when I’m on my priest and not my DK.
I am, in fact, still around–however between having a Warmachine army to paint and my wedding being now less than a month away, you can probably expect me to be quiet for awhile longer.
Weddings suck, man. If I’d known so few of my friends would make it out here I think I would have eloped after all. What’s the difference between having your future mother-in-law bitch about you eloping behind your back vs having her talk shit about your wedding plans behind your back?
Why yes the process so far as been delightful, how can you tell?
I had a Twitter follower spot (and then come say hi to!) me at Wizard World Comic Con on Saturday, which was apparently a rather bemusing experience for the Cranky Tank.
“Who was that?”
“Uh, someone from the internet.”
“…someone from the internet?”
“Someone from the internet, yes.”
Josh thinks Twitter is pretty moronic, so I left it at that. I have to say that Comic Con isn’t really my cup of tea–I’m more of a Ren Faire girl, I suppose. My Green Linen Shirt also confused Peter S. Beagle. Anyone have a good way to explain that shirt? I sure as hell don’t.
I now have a signed copy of The Last Unicorn, though. That’s pretty awesome.
In other, actually WoW related news, my shaman is level 69 and braving Northrend. I ran a dungeon with Alas on Lyrandre as well, bringing the bubble priest to close to 82. She may yet make a return thanks to our sudden dearth of priests. What? Where’d you all go guys?
Last but not least, Stands in Bad in recruiting! At this rate we can work with just about anything, but heals are definitely a priority. We’d prefer a priest (again, where the fuck did they go?) but we’re not exactly being picky. Just be geared to do t12 and don’t suck. The name is a joke, not a goal!
I was perusing through my search terms today (you people are fucking disturbing) and along with many many searches about how fucking STUPID Rhyo is, there were a LOT of searches for leveling disc priests.
So, hi. First off, leveling disc priests is awesome. I leveled Lyrandre entirely disc, but I started her off in BC. Things are so different now that I don’t dare touch the lower level stuff, but I can talk a wee bit about going from 80 on up.
Step One: Spec smite heal.
Step Two: Bubble thyself.
Step Three: Holy Fire!
Step Four: SMITE ALL THE THINGS.
Step Five: Pop wings for the pretty graphic/if you actually need mana.
If I managed to pull multiple mobs then I’ll toss around SWP and DP. Penance doesn’t really get used for questing unless I feel like seeing the pretty graphic, but it’s handy in case something actually manages to hurt you.
I can pull for quite awhile without drinking, but I’m also in ICC gear, so make of that what you will. So far I can quest and dungeon heal effectively with the same spec (my second spec currently sits empty). I’m well-nigh indestructable questing because I do a pretty good job of healing myself with smite. I just have to make sure I don’t let people die in dungeons while smiting. >.>
And now, to actually comment on anything past level 81 for these posts, I’m going to have to go level my priest…
Tip #1: If you skipped doing any quests in this zone at all, do the Sealegs one. No really. Ghostcrawler is REALLY FAR DOWN IN THE WATER.
Tip #2: Failing tip number 1, bring those Nagrand Cherries in your bank that you kept for some reason not even you can explain.
If you fail to do one of those two things, you may end up felling quite silly if you spot the spirit beast but then have to go back and do the quest real quick in order to NOT DROWN.
No, I’m not speaking from personal experience, why are you looking at me like that?
