After some hem and hawing, I have decided it’s time to finish out my army of healers and get Earenn up to level 80. Why? Well, because everyone loves healers…and I kinda want to finish out my set! :) Maybe I’m also a masochist, but trying to psycho analyze me would likely take more than this one little post! Seriously though, I really do just love healing. I also think that knowing the strengths and weaknesses of all of the healing classes from personal experience helps me with healing assignments and working through healing issues in raids.
Anyhow, I digress! Back to the preistess.
A little while back, I paid to dual spec her, her main spec being shadow even though I’m (truly) horrible at it. I ultimately opted to go with a holy spec because, well…I don’t know, it seemed the right thing to do at the time and I like that little angel thingie. Except, of course, when I’m trying to battle rez the damn priest with the friggin fail angel! I mean, seriously? Can’t you just cancel that damn thing so you can take your rez and I can stop waiting for it to go away?! Oops…sorry, a little side tracked. Back on topic!
Where were we? Oh, yes, my decision to go holy. So, I have been going about my happy, holy, circle of healing, angelic way, none the wiser until I got drawn into this little bit of hilarity, and I started to wonder…did I make the right choice going Holy? I mean…the pretty angel is cool, and circle of healing owns, but I, too, enjoy sparkly bubbles. Then, quite inadvertently, I stumbled across this new blog, where there is a fantastic write up on discipline talents, spec-ing and glyphing (really fantastic material there if you’ve not checked it out yet!). Wow! Discipline looks…kinda fun, and interesting too!
Uh oh. A decision. And nowhere near enough information to decide! You know…not everyone likes Baskin Robins and all of those 31 flavors! Some people like vanilla and the simplicity that it brings! Why, WHY, must we have all these options?!
Ok, I do like all the flavors options. I rarely choose just vanilla. I just hate being un-informed and wondering “what if the dark side really is better, and if they really do have cookies”. And it’s not like there is guy behind the WoW counter with those little pink spoons going “would you like to try a sample?” so I can try it out before committing.
So who is right?! The Bubble Queen or The Crack Elves? If you were leveling a priest that is going to heal through instances from 70 – 80, what would you do? Laser beams and bubbles, or fantastic fail angel?
