First off, for my fellow squishies who are thinking for going shadow for the first time (shut up: I know I am not the only one who leveled a healing spec, damn it), Binary colors posted a lovely, simple “How Not To Suck” guide.
Does that mean I went shadow for my dual spec? No. Lyr has purchased dual specs but as of yet chosen nothing. I want to go shadow. Ron, however, went Holy…and I know he doesn’t really want to go Holy (though he’s not as enamoured of the idea of Shadow as I am), so I feel strongly compelled to join him in suffering. For the good of the guild, of course. In other words, I’m waffling, as always.
I lost spellpower on Lyr. This makes me a sad panda. :(
Ambrosyne is sitting there entirely unspecced until I work out what, exactly, would be A Good Holy Spec. She won’t have dual-specs for awhile-I r broke. There is a slight temptation to go prot.
The problem with mass-respecs is that I have a lot of alts. Like…a lot. I have no idea what I want to do with some of them. Since instance servers were down I spent much of my night flopping from one toon to the next. I respecced Vainglory, my DK on Azgalor, Unholy…same as she was before. Ambrosine-DK went from Frost pre-patch to Unholy, at least for now. The chances of me leveling her are relatively slim.
That leaves me with: 55 mage (previously fire), 48 druid (previously kitteh), 70 hunter (BM forevah), and 75 warrior (previously prot). Might take the mage frost for future leveling, have no idea what to do with the druid, need a good BM spec for the hunter (fuck you, Survival), and might dual spec the warrior prot/fury. Gaaaah, decisions.
We are not hitting Ulduar tonight. I advised against canceling our scheduled raid to better give us a shot and adjusting to class changes in a familiar enviornment. Besides, some of us still need gear. A more comprehensive report of how disc priests fare post-patch, and how two bubble-happy disc priests can co-exist in a raid shall fall upon your eyes tomorrow.
At least most of my mods were fine-Chatter was initially broken but was updated an hour or so later. X-perl is functioning but…not entirely, as I can’t right click on any portraits to do anything.
“Amber, how did you leave the group?”
Didn’t get to test Grid but by all reports it continues to work. Steve is bitching and moaning about how this was a terrible patch, but for those of us with longer memories, we know that this actually wasn’t too terrible. Steve’s a nub.
