A lot of people recently have been milling over the introduction of the new healing legendary, and how to deal with it’s distribution. Both Averna and Lissanna, as well as the folks over at WoW Insider have all given some thought about what to do with this weapon. There is even an entire page dedicated to the mace and tracking information surrounding it! So I thought I’d go over what I know about it, my thoughts on it, and how my guild has decided to handle it’s distribution.
What we know about Val’anyr
It is restricted to four classes: Priest, Paladin, Shaman, Druid
It will require 30 (yes, it’s been changed back) shattered fragments of Val’anyr to create
The Shattered Fragments of Val’anyr will be a drop from bosses inside of Ulduar. It is strongly speculated that the fragments will be limited to hard mode bosses, but there is some suggestion that it may be an extremely rare drop from all bosses, but a more prevelant drop from hard mode encounters. Think about it…if it only drops from Hard Mode bosses, that means that fragments can only drop from 10 of the 14 encounters.
Once you have 30 fragments, you can combine them that will start a quest chain to complete construction of the mace. Part of this quest chain will require you to defeat Yogg-Saron before you can recover your reforged hammer.
The only known stat of the mace is a data-mined equip effect that reads “Your healing spells have a chance to cause Blessing of Ancient Kings for 15 seconds, allowing your heals to shield the target absorbing damage equal to 15% of the amount healed”. Read the rest of this entry »
As we likely enter our last raid reset before the patch, the question on my mind is will we be able to complete The Immortal achievement? We have done everything else for our Heroic: Glory of the Raider, but for a number of weeks this achievement has eluded us. One week it was from a parry gib on Gluth, one week it was from an over excited arcane explosion spamming mage on Gothikk, one week it was from someone who forgot their left from right on Thaddius…the list goes on and on.

So, now that I have everything mostly set up (still need to figure out the whole custom avatar thing!) I figured I start with an introduction.
Who I am: I am a healer. It’s what I love to do. My primary focus is healing with a resto druid but I have healed on all of the healing classes.
What I hope to accomplish: Really, I am hoping that this blog can be multi-functional.
Firstly, I’d like to provide what I hope is a resource to people. Not just on Druiding, but on raiding in general, and to a lesser extent on guild leadership and management.
Secondly, I’d like to try to branch out a little more into the number crunching/theory crafting behind my class. I feel that I have the mathematical mindset to do this, but have always relied on others for information. I think that I can make an attempt (albeit a meager one) to help provide to the community, at least somewhat, in this area. This area is also something that I’ve grown increasingly interested in exploring.
Lastly, I’d like somewhere to put out my thoughts and maybe get feedback on them.
So, in short, welcome anyone that happens to venture out this way. Hopefully you enjoyed your stay and found something interesting while you were here! =)
