Huh, that wasn’t what I expected11/09/2010
Hi, guys! Just checking in to let you know that my NaNoWriMo is still going strong and that it is almost certain now that I’ll be back to raiding come expansion. Be prepared for number crunching galore.
Speaking of, I’ve been playing the druid quite a bit and I was very surprised to see how little healing has changed. I was frankly expecting a real difference, given what I had been reading from other people. There has been so much anger at the changes, with people quitting the game or changes mains, but… Well, it really is almost totally the same! In fact, the first night I came back, I had a conversation with another non-Tree about it and we agreed that it is almost exactly like T9 with a dose of old, old school added in. There I was, rolling RJ like always (my internal timing was whacky, though, I’ll admit!). Really, the only change has been that I replaced my Nourish button with RG, which made me laugh. It was as if WotLK never happened, as if it was TBC that was leading into this new expansion! I suppose I’m slightly more thoughtful about who gets my SM now, but just barely. It has always been my favorite spell.
On the shaman front, -really- nothing has changed! I just walked in and went to town. Well, I suppose I’ve replaced LHW usage with HW, but that’s just such a minor change that it isn’t worth noting.
It will be at least a month before I think of touching the priest or the paladin, as I need time to get back into the healing swing of things on these two. Frankly, I’m not looking forward to logging onto my paladin and seeing how things are now. She was my pride and my main focus for so long that I almost want to leave her enshrined in my memory, undefiled by change. We’ll see, we’ll see…
