God damn Casuals, ruining the game once again. I bet that’s what you were expecting to read when you came here. Your blood is already pumping, preparing to blast us for for subscribing to the “only 25 man raiders should get exclusive loot” school, and and tell us to tuck our pathetic virtual e-peens away and quit the game. Man, are you going to be disappointed when you read this. So take a deep breath and let me explain what us “elitist pricks” have to say about all this.
I originally wanted to entitle this post as “How not to piss off your healers”, but that seemed to make my message come off as being a giant pissing session. I didn’t want to set the tone of this posting to be so negative. I really want this post to allow DPS a glimpse into what healers have to deal with on a nightly basis. Afterall, we hold every single member of the raid in our hands… and I’d be lying if I told you that I didn’t smile when I see a DPS die and they pissed me off already in that evening. So, I guess we’ll consider this an open letter to all DPS out there.
That stupid horse. That Retarded Horse. Everyone has it. It’s an atrocious, Sparkly, Star Horise Mount, & people waited in queues of 4+ hours to drop $25 of real world cash to get it. How absolutely idiotic. So I bought two. One for me, and one for you. Wanna win it?
“Ain’t nobody… heal you better. Makes you happy, gets you healed this way. Ain’t nobody heals you better than me…. Ava did a great post last week recapping the Priest preview for Cataclysm – I agree with most of what she said. While, personally, I hate the current design of Leap of Faith. I sincerely hope the current incarnation isn’t implemented as described – where’s the throughput? Threat dump? Healing Bonus? Anything? It needs just a little SOMETHING else to it. Or the fact that the level 85 spells are supposed to be our ‘shiny new toy’… I don’t want to get too distracted by it. Aaaaanyway… One of the more interesting changes is the concept of Chakras. I really have mixed emotions about this proposed ability. One one hand …
Just a quick update to let everyone know we’ll be LIVE on the Slash 2 podcast this Friday, 4/16/10 at 7 central. I’m sure it will be lots of incoherent fun, so make sure you stop by and join us in the live chatroom. These guys are a blast, so check out their previous shows if you haven’t!
As many of you know, a preview of the proposed priest changes for the Cataclysm expansion have been released. And of course, with any change announcements, the forums and players erupt in a glorious amount of QQing. I’m not sure what I enjoy more – the prospect of what we do being shaken up a bit, or watching a community of idiots & baddies make knee jerk reactions to something none of us can understand fully at this point. Every expansion, one can assume there will be class mechanic changes, especially when new content & levels are being added. It would be a rather boring expansion if NOTHING about our classes changed, don’t you think? And LOTS is being changed – stats are being ‘simplified’ & how we receive benefits …
Ooooh I, I love the nightlife…I got to boogie……On the disco ’round, oh yea. Oh, I love the night life….I got to boogie on the disco ’round, oh yea… What? Disco is dead? Shit, I guess I didn’t get the memo. Thank god, because Disco music sucks. But I’ll tell you what DOESN’T suck! Healing the Lich King fight as a discipline priest. If for some reason you still run with a group of window lickers that still don’t understand the benefits and abilities of a discipline priest, this fight alone should change their mind.
