Time flies when you’re having fun

We’ve been back over a month now which just goes to show how time flies. So what have we been up to?

PvP and lots of it

Random battlegrounds are strange places. Sometimes everything just falls into place and other times it’s hard to believe you’re playing with other human beings. Although to be fair, quite often, especially late at night, you aren’t.

Rediscovering my love of Priests

On my Druid there are Priest tools I’d kill for and vice versa. Comparing Regrowth say with Flash Heal or Divine Hymn with Tranquillity, even Cyclone with Fear, I find myself wishing . Yes, I get the whole apples and oranges argument but I really think that the expensive panic heals, the regrowths and flashs of Azeroth should come out somewhere similar. Just as I’ve hated seeing Divine Hymn go from being awesome to “Oh look I’ve just boosted everyone else’s healing for a bit”, especially when compared to how good Tranquillity is.

Levelling purely as Disc has changed my appreciation of the spec quite considerably. I’d forgotten how over powered well geared low level Priests are. Reflective shield is awesome and mind control never gets old. I’m also loving the changes to grace and being able to be immune to silence/kicks. Just wish Holy would get some love soon.

Farming gear for Transmogrification 

We started with the Black Temple and in case anyone was wondering you can 2 man up Gurtogg Bloodboil and everyone before him. It didn’t take too long either as you can skip most of the trash leading to the the first two bosses. As a feral Druid and ret Paladin, the only issues we had (apart from getting slightly lost) were when we forgot to clear the trash in Akama’s room before starting him off. Far too many stuns/sleeps and other such annoyances ensued and we died. Lesson learnt, it was probably the easiest of the fights.

For High Warlord Naj’entus, we just stood close to each other for easy spike removal. On the shade of Akama, clear the room before you start and I really don’t see how you could go wrong.

Whilst we were wandering about remembering how much we hated the place when we were raiding it, we paid a visit to Teron Gorefiend and I got revenge for all those times he gave me that hateful debuff first.

Revenge is a dish best eaten cold

Unfortunately no Priest on a stick this reset but we intend to see if the rest is clearable with 2 at some point. The Reliquary of the Lost is probably going to be the biggest challenge but since we can both kick, hopefully it will be passable.

At 250 gold per boss, plus gems and other bits and pieces from the trash, it’s pretty good money as well.

  1. I have always regretted trashing the white T6-model hood by Gurtgogg! =/ (along with the white T6-model shoulders by Akama). I would probably try to get them back today, too.

    And you know what I’m going to say about that staff your gnomelette is wearing to that oldschool pvp set! 😉

    • I logged Erinys the other day, first time since December and had a rummage through her bags. Not only do I have tier 6 shoulders, I have 2 tier 6 shoulder tokens sitting there too. Clearly I have a shoulder fetish or something equally disturbing. The white ones are probably better for a healer though.

      Should have really got the Grand Marshal one but with the 22 int enchant that old school heirloom one worked out better and it’s so cute… not to mention it matches her hair.

      • Yes that’s the thing – while I loved the T6 model, I didn’t like the colors. and I prefer the robe of T5.
        Back then I combined T5 robe with, Akama’s and Gurtogg’s drops – it looks fantastalicious! 😀

  2. I think the blue suits a shadowpriest but the white definitely for healing. Still tempted towards the venomshroud for my priest though, love the spider design.
