So, everyone knows I read a fuck ton, and as a result of that I’ve got a fuck ton of books that I don’t read anymore. I’m trying to get rid of them. These books are all free. All I ask is that you pay for shipping. But hey if you want to throw me a little something extra I won’t say no

After being told that healing would get better, and whining like a petulant child, I have to say that it did get better. Although it is no where near as fun for me as it used to be, it no longer makes me want to rage and punt small furry creatures across the room. I have noticed though that now when I heal I tend to get a headache from all the concentrating that I do.
So did they dumb down healing, or did people finally start realizing what was going on? I think honestly that people just started paying attention, and of course the gear isn’t nearly as big an issue as it was when I started running Cata heroics.
Honestly, though gearing up can go fuck itself. I understand that it makes sense for leather wearers to wear leather and cloth wearers to wear cloth, but when I’m the only caster in a group, and all that drops is cloth gear that is an upgrade from the gear I’m wearing but I don’t want to give up that 5% INT, it kind of makes me want to punt small animals again.
So, instead I’ve set myself small goals. Run a heroic once a day, since doing a heroic takes anywhere from 2-3 hours even with a guild group, gone are the days of me doing a heroic before bed, or before I have to go to work. This honestly makes me sad. Do my dailys, and then I’m free to do whatever I want. Very rarely is it run another heroic though, usually I end up dinking around on an alt.
Yeah, I’m leveling another druid, wanna fight about it? Haha, seriously am. Although she’s a feral druid, something I swore I’d never be. I’m loving killing shit in 2 hits. I’m a fierce bitch.
I need to start preparing for raiding, since as a guild we start raiding on Wednesday. I just hope we have enough range. Seriously where the hell did all this melee damage come from? I also hope that our raiders are ready, because if not I forsee some massive bitching coming. We’ll see.
So I had all these goals for Realm First, and didn’t meet any of them. Honestly, there were some bugs and issues, but my hats off to the Realm First Druid on my server (not gonna lie I don’t even know it was).
I’m honestly really proud of myself for managing to hit 85 as quickly as I did. Now if only it was that easy to gear up for raiding.
Healing in WoW is so fucking horrible it’s not even funny. I hate it, and for me to hate healing is something massive. I’ve loved healing ever since I first picked it up. But now it’s … a bit on the excessive side. I enjoy a challenge, but what I don’t enjoy is constantly feeling like I’m doing something wrong, no matter how much I try to change my play style.
My hots just don’t hit hard enough, and my mana regen isn’t good enough. I’m going OOM before the boss is even at 40%. And I’m watching my heals, and making sure that I’m only doing triage on the dps, but when I can’t take my eyes off the tank for fear of him going splat while I toss the dps or myself a quick heal, there’s something wrong.
I’m betting that either healing will be buffed soon, or dmg output by mobs will be nerfed. Either would be fine with me. I understand not wanting healing to be super easy, but for fucks sake who wants to heal when it makes the game no longer feel like a game and instead something to be dreaded? If something doesn’t change soon though, I don’t know what I’m going to do. Cry quietly in a corner maybe, and then learn how to be a boomkin or something I guess.
I’ll figure it out eventually.
Honestly, there has been so much going on in game lately that … I haven’t wanted to play at all. But within the last couple of days it started to dawn on me. The Cataclysm is coming. I need to sit down and start preparing for my push to Realm First.
I’ve heard it all, both postive and negative with my goal. But I have to stop and think … that’s just what it is. My goal. If I fail then I fail, but fuck at least I tried.
My character is sitting stocked with 6k gold, almost 50 open bag slots, 40 flasks and buff food to last me forever. I’m so ready to complete this, so ready to make my goal.
I’ll try to take small breaks as I go to post some screen shots, and possibly a vlog or two, but honestly time is of the essence for me.
As my guild always likes to tell me, GOGO!
After shaking off the Turkey coma I was in last night, I ended up logging into WoW and joining up with a pug for the Starcaller title, which means doing the Observed achievement.
Since the group that I was with, was also looking to do some Hardmodes, I figured why not. This could be my chance to get my Ulduar drake. We went in and honestly, didn’t have much trouble. Doing Iron Dwarf Medium Rare was a bit of a pain in the ass, but we did it after hitting the enrage timer once. The only other problem we’ve had was Mimeron, stupid stupid Mimeron who no longer drops his head. 😦 But over all, the experience was one I would repeat. The group is planning on getting together again tonight to finish up.
On a side note, I’m loving the zone changes. I say pish posh to those people who were scuffing at the changes that WoW was making. Yes, it’s easier to play, but with the easy comes some hard. Because once the Cata raids hit, you’re going to have to CC and pay attention.
Last night, I heard my boy exclaim “SFK is HARD!” and it made me grin. Easy my ass.
I’ve got an update coming soon with some screenshots. So stay tuned. Until then, happy wowing.
So instead of writing about what I’m thankful for, I made a V-Log. Haha, I’ve never made one before, so this is going to be an adventure.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
The ground was littered with pieces of Scourge. The air still cackled with residual energy of magics used, and there was an ever present scent of blood. The two elves stood in silence.
“I should have let them kill you,” the blonde one grumbled, “It would save me from having to kill you.”
“You could try, Blood Elf, but it would be in vain. While you are a skilled paladin, you are of no match for me.” She shifted forms as if to prove her point.
“Your point has been made, druid. You are nothing but an animal. Both on the battlefield and off.” He waved his hand at the carnage surrounding them. “I’m not going to attempt to kill you this time, but if our paths should ever cross again …” he trailed off, as she once again shifted forms to stand in front of him.
She sighed, and tucked a piece of hair behind her ear. “Then you’ll kill me. I understand.” She stared at him, taking his measure slowly. “However, if this is to be good bye,” She grabbed his tabbard and yanked him closer to her. “Then let us not waste time with words.”
In the middle of a crowded mall, is where he broke up with me. It was there he told me that he just didn’t have the time for us anymore. No, I’m not talking about my boyfriend breaking up with me, I’m talking about something much more serious. My DM broke up with our group. And oddly enough, I felt as if I was going through an actual break up.
Our little Dungeons and Dragons group has gone through a lot. We’ve had members leave, and join. We had one member get shipped off to Afganistan, and we even had a character die. I feel much like, many relationships, this one just didn’t get to see the end reward.
Am I mad? No, not really. Am I sad? Of course. Countless hours of my Friday nights spent around the table, rolling my dice are gone. But, in the end it is the memories that carry on, and that’s what gets me through. I wanted to learn to play, and I did. Am I a wonderful player, no not really. But I’m okay with that, because I had fun doing it.
So now that my Friday nights are free … is there anyone out there who needs a date?
So someone *cough*Drea*cough* pushed me to do NaNoWriMo. So during the month of November there will hopefully be a lot of updates coming from me. I’m planning on keeping most of my drafts and stuff here. I’m nervous, because I’m horrible with deadlines, but I’m sure I’ll do fine. Right now I’m waiting for 12:00:01 to hit so I can get started while I’ve got all these ideas fresh in my head. It’ll be done in blog format from the POV of a girl named Mackenzie, Mac, for short. She’s kinda geeky, kinda spunky and desperately searching for love. I figure why not draw from not only my own experiences but those of my friends as well? We will have to see what happens.
Things in WoW have been going pretty awesome. My guild is seriously a great group. They’d pretty much give you the shirt off their backs if you really needed it. We’re now working on some of the hardmodes and achievements in ICC. I know that some of them want to give up, but I’m not going to let them. Mainly because I want my damn mount. Haha.
