As I’ve been writing about we’ve been having trouble filling our raids since Christmas time, and so our progress has been fairly slow. Even now we’re filling our raid with between two and four PUG members each evening. As such we only just yesterday felt that we had a good enough group to try our first Heroic mode in Dragon Soul. Morchok is by far the easiest Heroic boss in there (I’ve done him previously on my Paladin in the Horde guild), and so I figured we should be able to do him even with PUGs.
It took us most of the evening, but we did eventually get him down. However, we didn’t have enough healers to do the job as it were. We were trying to use one healer on Kochrom and two on Morchok, and we were close to doing it, but the Warrior tanking Kochrom was just taking too much damage. Desperate times require desperate measures, and so I logged off my Warlock and onto my Priest.
My badly geared Priest whom I haven’t played much lately. My badly geared Priest with a 374 ilevel.
However, that little bit of extra healing that she could provide was all that we needed, and we killed the boss a few tries later. While of course I’d like to play my Warlock, I don’t mind hopping on another character if the fight requires it. In the end, all I want is for the guild to continue progressing, and if that means that on one fight I have to play another character, then so be it. (Or at least until we can recruit another healer!)
I did feel rather mana starved during the end of the boss fight though, and so I’ve decided to gear her up a bit better. I entered the LFR and already got three upgrades. I got another two from Valor Points, and hope to get another two soon. Reading the tool tips for the 4 piece bonus for Priests, I’m wondering if I should switch from Holy to Discipline when I get it. Is it just me, or does it seem awesome for Disc Priests?
Getting the new upgrades felt great, but it cost me a small fortune since it required nine red gems, two yellow, four enchants, belt buckle… That’s a lot of things to cough up all in one go!
I quite enjoyed going into a raid on my Priest. These days I don’t play her much, but it reminded me of the old days when she was my main. I created her at the end of Vanilla as my first Alliance character.
Today in LFR another Priest was complementing me that I was doing good healing for my gear. I figure he was either being nice for no reason or I’ve still got it! 😉
Have you gone back to a character that was nearly forgotten and been reminded of what you liked about it?
Ps Also, seriously – should I go Discipline these days or is Holy still good?
