A Dark Nemesis Gratuitous Self-Congratulatory Post

Before I dive into this brief post/update, one thing we did learn about blogging is that your reader is smart enough to know- so don’t try to fool them: When you are doing gratuitous self-promotion, tell them. Consider yourself notified. That being said, we’ve been busy. We completed Glory of the Icecrown Raider on 10-Mans and got our very sexy Frost Wyrms. They’re almost as frigid as Derevka, but way cooler.

Big News- Power Word: Fail!

Many of you may be familiar with the Podcast, Raid Warning. If you aren’t, you really should listen to them. It is a great laid-back, and informative podcast. They have decided to do a Priest Roundtable – and they have decided to take both Avalonna and Derevka on… boy do they not know what they have coming. Holy to  Discipline to Shadow– PVP to Hardcore End Game Raiding. It all will be discussed, and I am sure there will be some joking and good times had as well.

New Theme, New Host, New Look!

The blog has undergone some major plastic surgery! We commissioned Lassirra from The Hunter’s Mark to create us this fantastic theme and she did a great job. She also helped me set it up. With the WP platform we have a lot more tools available to us that will help make the blog better, easier to read, and easier to find the articles you want to read. Feel free to make comments on this post about what you think about it. We’ll be making a few changes here and there, so stay tuned over the next few days!

Derevka’s Meme

Since Ava did here Healing MEME survey last week, I figured I would do mine today as a clean and fun way to kick of the reopening of the blog. What is the name, class, and spec of your primary healer?Derevka, Priest, Holy Primarily, Disc Secondary What is your primary group healing environment?25 Man Hard Mode What is your favorite healing spell for your class and why?Prayer of Mending – mainly because its exceptionally unique, no other class has anything like it. And with the set bonus from T9 seeing 10-12k crits “bounce” around is crazy nice! What healing spell do you use least for your class and why?Greater Heal – what used to be the stable downranked/spammed tank healing spell in TBC, it is now the redheaded stepchild, even …

Introducing Avalonna…

The Triumphant Return of “Tales of Priest v2.0 – Beauty & the Bitch” I met Derevka many moons ago, as we play on the same server. Several of his old guildmates had joined our ranks, I dropped hints for an eternity that if he ever decided to change guilds, look me up. He had always been a valuable source to bounce ideas off, and we have had some great discussions. When he told me he was ready to take a more serious approach to raiding & wanted to join Dark Nemesis, I was happier than a pig in shit. You’ll notice we’re two vastly different people: Although we’re relatively the same age, I’m a brash, loud, easily excited & very blunt Mechanical Engineer from Chicago. He’s a softspoken, calm, Ivy-educated….something. …
