Firelands Dailies

…My druid can’t do them. She’s currently stuck in a lag vortex right after, oh, the first quest that gives marks of the world tree. I can’t even get her out of it, due to the fact that WoW runs at about 1 frame per 10 minutes on her in those areas. Oh, and the Thrall quests, which my shaman can do easily and with no lag to speak of, my druid also goes back down to 1 frame per 10 seconds. I have no idea what is causing this.

…Er, the two quests I did were fun, though!

And the Thrall questline has a nice cape for my shammy that she loves. Considering she was using a 333 cape.

*goes to try getting druid out of the area once again*

*sigh*

So, uhm, hi again?

Have I mentioned my Druid(alienea) and Shaman(She was Shaniana but now she’s Ielia on a RP realm) are both 85? No?

…Now I have.

…Uhhhh.

So.

I’ve been playing WoW.

I’ve been having fun!

Those Thrall Quests? My druid gets near them and “OMG LAG AHHH” it goes down to one frame per MINUTE. My shaman breezed through them.

I’ve got a 65 priest now.

And a 21 pally.

…So my dreams of getting an 85 of all healing classes are that much closer to completion.

I stopped running heroics on my druid a while ago. She has a standing invite to a guild that she could raid with.

My shaman is looking for a rp/raiding guild (If you’re on Wyrmrest Accord with a strange raiding schedule and you Rp, send her a mail. Ielia, the draenei shaman.)

My priest is ..well, leveling.

My paladin is actually a tank because my cousin is playing wow and leveling with a healer spec, so she needs a tank.

Oh, I’ve also got a goblin. I roleplay on her, she’s a warrior, and it is because of her I RealID broadcasted “I’m 4 feet tall, and I have a shield. POINT ME AT THE GIGANTIC MONSTERS!”

Well I have lots of alts.

I deleted Eagleb. I …well, she wasn’t getting used, and I didn’t need her that much.

Oh, I also have a 73 DK named Balrial on WA.

I’m alive.

I’ve just not been blogging.

/signs off until next time I feel like posting something.

Insane PuGging

*has no good explanation for absence*

Shaniana met an insane PuG group today.

1 Worgen Warrior, 1 Night Elf Death Knight(tank), 1 Dwarf Hunter, 1 Human Paladin and Shani.

I zone in to an already in progress dungeon, sighing inside because that almost never ends well. I clicked on the DK to check his presence and.. he didn’t have one. Erm.

Understanding that I photoshop ftl, I started out everyone with black and a letter.

Blue P: Paladin is in Blue

Red DK: Death Knight is in Red

Brown W: Warrior is in Brown

Green H: Hunter is in green

the line inbetween Dk: In Combat and “Hold going out” is me saying “Er, you can switch in combat”

*cry*

Stuff like this makes your healer die a little inside.

…I realize that to some of you, vote kicking may seem extreme. *coughakomarcough* But if you’re not going to admit you can switch presences in combat, and you “never do it that way”, you’re getting a vote kick your way.

*cry* Dk I refuse to heal you. I reserve the right to refuse healing to anyone like this. You never tank like that? I’m sorry, I don’t heal tanks like that. We eventually stuck the concept in his head that you can switch presences in combat after one more minute of arguing. The Paladin is to blame for that minute, as he said to let him try. His methods consisted of yelling obscenities at him. After that, the DK kept on going in and out of blood presence, and the Hunter continued to make snarky comments. We downed Hadronax without having him overwhelmed by buggies and dying without giving us credit. We easily cleared the trash after that, and after engaging Anub’arak… the paladin left. Randomly. No “have to go, guild needs my main”, or “shoot I need to go emergency”. Just *poof* and gone. Alright. Fine.

Slowly getting up to 80

Levitate is for Screenies...

Shani is now level 67. I am such a slow leveler, I know. It only took me… what… I joined WoW a year after BC came out, and then I leveled 70 just in time for WoLK to come out in a month or so. Fun times, no? Shani has been tossed into so many dungeons lately that I’m surprised she hasn’t died more often. She also hasn’t run into any horrible tanks… yet. Even the DKs have been good. But I’m getting very, very, very tired of seeing mail chest+shoulder items drop like they’re just trying to taunt me because I have BoAs. However, I really think I might be able to get her into the mid-70s by, say, Cataclysm. Although if I start leveling her even more, I might get to 80… But that’s probably not going to happen, so. Here’s to getting her to 80!

Yessssss. Blog post time… *watches downloader* oh, yeah, blog post.

TO DO LIST:

Respec Druid, Shaman, Death Knight, Priest, Warlock, Hunter. Check other realms, respec paladin.

 

Druid: Feral/90%sure Resto. Although, I might just leave it blank or not log back on to my druid. She’s logged in Tree form, dancing with her tedrassil sproutling. Oh, who am I kidding, I love my druid, and I love healing and faceripping. Feral/Resto she is!

I’m going with this for feral and this for resto. Feral is focused more on leveling, while resto is still orientated towards healing groups, still. I’m going to grab furor as I level her in cata in resto– who could pass up 15% more mana?

 

Shaman: Resto/Something. Ehn has WOLVES. *cough* And she’s lost riptide to my great annoyance, because I was loving having a HoT to use on her.

 

Death Knight: Blood. She’s my RP char, and although I’ve moved a bit away from her blood-hysteria rage, I’ve been building towards having her get a bit more violent again, because frost and unholy is something the other 2 people are, and we don’t really WANT to switch. I love rune tap too much to give it up like that.

 

Priest: Lvl 8(or)13. PEW PEW LAZERS! I made the mistake of putting point in holy on my lvl 13 priest, but now she’s going to have lazers, and so will my lvl 8 priest when she gets to 10. Although furbolgs just LOVE to eat her.

 

Warlock: Always been a demonologist on her, and she’s staying that way. Felguard!

 

Hunter: Beast Mastery! MY hunter has always been BM and she’ll always be BM.

 

Paladin: Gosh, I think I have a paladin I’m not really sure, but she’s going to go healer or tank. Healer… and I’d have one alt of every healer… tank.. and I’d have a tank. I’ll think about it.

 

Everyone: Have fun with patch 4.01, but remember to mourn the trees!

-rubs head- Sorry about the dearth of new posts…. It’s just… anything I want to write will be OBSOLETE. NOT USEFUL ANYMORE. Catacylsm=Oh god why should I write anything that’ll be wrong in a few months? I mean, honestly, it’ll be helpful for now and then go out-of-date so quickly it’s not even funny. And then, in November? Yeah, I plan on doing NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo. I’m going to go INSANE I tell you. And what’s even more insane is that I don’t have a book IDEA yet much less an OUTLINE. Ah-hah-hah-hah?

But you’ll be happy because hey, anytime I can twist¬†NaBloPoMo to WoW, I will, so you’ll get a good few posts out of that. But I actually do have something to say, if it would somehow slip through time to myself when I was first starting…

“I know she says feral is good for leveling, but restoration is the way to go at the endgame.. and stop pulling all those murlocs.”

I started firmly feral. Admittedly, I was influenced by the outside force known as V, but the idea of turning into a kitty AND a bear and OMG a seal and another cat also!? Yeah, feral made me happy– I didn’t even KNOW about moonkin and tree forms. And yes, I was druid from the beginning. DRUID! And now I have a lvl 59 shaman I’m leveling, and that’s what you’ll get posts about from now until cata, mostly. So, GL =D

Top Secret Shaman Activties

HintHint, check the tags...

If your healer can top the charts while healing all of your overpulls, ur doin it wrong.

Shaman Leveling Part 1

I have a concussion….so this really isn’t finished. Therefore, it is part 1!

Shaman leveling.

If you’re not Restoration, I really don’t know what you do.

But as a restoration shaman, I made it to level 34, around, before the dungeon finder came out. If you make through Stranglethorn Vale on any character, you know you probably stick with them, by the way.

If you’re leveling as a restoration shaman, then you’re probably leveling through the dungeon finder. You’re going to need to know the basic spells and when to use them.

15-19

Let’s say you have the fire and earth totems. After all, the earliest you can use the dungeon finder is 15, and by then, that’s all you have. What should you use? If you want to be more defensive and reduce the amount of heals you will need to use, then you should drop a Stoneskin totem and a Searing totem.

You have: Lesser Healing Wave(LHW)

Healing Wave.  (HW)

Unless a lot of damage is being taken, then just use LHW to top everyone off. ALWAYS. If for some reason you need to heal a lot of damage and the damage coming in should be minimal, that is where you should use HW.

20-29

! HEALING STREAM TOTEM! WATER SHIELD! WOOOO!

Always put down healing stream until you get mana spring, and then put that down unless there is a pally who will wisdom you. Keep water shield up AT ALL TIMES. It will help with chain-pulling tanks who apparently believe we can run on no mana. With Healing Stream Totem, you don’t have to heal as much because the totem will be healing it for you. Other than that, there’s no major changes or cooldowns you’ll have to juggle except for Tidal Force, the 11-point talent. It gives you crits, basically. Use it with LHW if you need big heals in not a lot of time.

The Dusty Shaman

My name is Shaniana, and I have not been played for so long that the armory no longer has my stats. I went up to lvl 42 since you last saw me at lvl 37, and then was tucked into a corner to gain rest exp. My reaction was “Rest Exp?! I DON’T NEED RESTED EXPERIENCE BOOST I HAVE HEIRLOOMS!” And now I’m sitting in a corner, forgotten because one of her friends finally got to 80. And he needs gear. So I’m just sitting here, in the dark, hoping that whenever she gets back on me I won’t be sent to Maraudon. Nature Sprits, I HATE that place. I have no more purpose! Well, that’s not true. She just keeps on having stuff pop up to make her play her druid. -sigh- ‘bye!

Patch 3.3

It’s my Birthday Tomorrow. There will be a Birthday Post.

I get I yummiliciouswonderifuleric black&white cake. YumYUMyuM!

So, I’ve heard on the grapevine patch 3.3 has dropped. I have no clue, because, hey, school is evil. Good luck with that…shoo…shoo…-cry in corner- ANYWAYS. I hear balance druids are happy or something unless they’re PvPers. And… and feral druids are just trundling along going extinct, really we are! We have to compete with rogues and–that’s a post for another time. Restoration druids have rejuv, last I checked, staying the same. (Yay) AND..I’m just sort of sitting here happy I went on PTR so that I’m not completely heartbroken over this. Maybe I can get on this weekend… Heck, get back to raiding. TotC10/25, if I’m really really lucky.. last time I was in there I got 2 tanking items and nothing for healz, sadly. Also no trophies. But I can hope. I’m going back to sobbing in a corner now, and handing it off to my shaman. who recently lvled. Twice. -walks off to corner with LotR while muttering-

….Is she gone? Hello, I’m the shaman. I recently leveled(twice) once by her and once by her friend who took pity on me and leveled me. Her initial shalt be V. Thank you, V. Do post if you want that to be edited. I’ve got pretty totems and stuff, but not much is new in shaman land, except for the fact I escaped STV, thank the elements, and ran away to dustwallow marsh. It’s boring here, but it is heaven compared to stranglethorn vale. MORDOR WOULD BE HEAVEN COMPARED TO STRANGLETHORN VALE— wait, I’ve just been told Mordor doesn’t exist in this dimension. OH well. Mount Doom, anyone? Patch 3.3 would’ve been a very happy thing for me…. chain dungeoning so that I could level swiftly swiftly swiftly, but it was not to be, sadly. And… I’m going to go follow Alienea and cry. To myself. and if you tell anyone….I’ll cast no haelz on you. Never.
