As you might remember I put out a call to arms for the European bloggers to join up on Real ID and do some Heroics together. Monday night it finally happened (I’m just late writing about it) and it was a lot of fun!
Ironically almost everyone who signed up were people who play a healer. Now, I do play a Warlock for my main, but 90% of the people signed up were Horde, so I had to go on my Horde Paladin, who is of course also a healer.
So, what happens when you put that many healers into a group together? Well, we had to make some arrangements. I ended up tanking with my protection spec, and some of the others had to come on their dps alts. While a group may have worked with us all on our mains (heck, with that many healers no one would ever die.. but then again, probably no mobs would die either..) it just seemed like a better idea to have some actual dps toons in there.
With me tanking, Reala healing and the others dpsing we took on Zul’Aman and we fairly well. There may have been a couple of hiccups (totally had nothing to do with me managing to have taunt on cooldown when the panther on the final boss charged off to kill the healer.. really!), but on the whole it was a lot of fun. It was a great experience to meet and play with the people whose blogs I read on a regular basis.
If there are more European players out there who’d be interested in this, just let me know and I’ll send you my Real ID. Maybe others are interested in sharing theirs with each other as well.
Another evening I also did a Heroic with a reader of mine, Zemaree and some of his guild mates. They needed a dps and so I brought along my badly geared Horde Death Knight, but we managed to finish Zul’Aman even with me in the group!
Thanks to everyone for some really fun Heroics, and I hope we can do it again some time! If anyone needs a spare set of hands for a Heroic, just grab me – as long as I’m not busy with something I’m almost always up for another Heroic.
