Healer

The End….for now

Sadly after playing 5 years of WOW I decided to quit, not too happy with the latest expansion. I enjoyed BC, WOTLK was okay but Cataclysm just destroyed WOW IMO. Most people couldn’t handle the dramatic change from Wotlk to cata (easy to hard difficult levels). I don’t mind the challenge but I don’t like how they changed classes, especially healers. I used to love my resto shammy now I simple stopped healing and just switched full dps. Some healers found it difficult to heal in instances due to idiot tanks who still have the WOTLK mentality. There are many reasons as to why I’m quitting the game and if I talked about them it’ll be endless lol

Maybe I should try Rift or other MMORPG games, who knows.

Don’t you love it when you wait 20 min in queue for the random daily heroic only to end up in a group with a resto shaman all in greens with 14k mana pool, and he only heals the tank while the rest of the group just dies? …sigh

Failed Shaman

by Reema on February 5, 2010

in World of Warcraft & other Games

A Shaman standing just outside the Alliance bank in Dalaran showing off his gear. Now with a 5995 Gearscore you’d think wow bet his heals are awesome, unfortunately on this guy I can justly say what a waste.

Not a single haste gem was socketed on his armor, in fact he was stacked with intellect LOL (thinks he’s a pally). His haste is poorly at 500! with that gear he could’ve had 1.5k plus haste. Every gem socket was intellect and I kid you not only a total of 3 spellpower + intellect gems. I’m amazed he remembered spellpower.

on to his gear, sigh , cloth and leather with spirit? really?

  • Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads: Sockets both gemmed with 20 intellect.
  • Deathwhisper Chestpiece: Sockets were spellpower and intellect, an intellect + mp5 gem (omg mp5! yay?) and finally 20 intellect.
  • Frozen Bonespike: This dagger dropped on our 25 ICC run when I was healing on my shaman, but I knew better not to roll on it.
  • First of all shamans DO NOT need spirit, it’s useless. Second, these items are all drops from 25 ICC which means he wrongfully rolled on them and I’m pretty sure there had to be some poor druid who needed them, same goes for the dagger. However the blame is not entirely on the shaman but on the raid leader for allowing it.

    Oh almost forgot, when he was asked about his dagger and that he didn’t need spirit his reply was, “Just because it had spirit doesn’t mean I pass on an upgraded item”….fail idiot shaman who doesn’t know how to play his toon.

    Totems

    I was on my warrior when I had COS as the random heroic daily. I love this place, easy and fun. For those who didn’t know COS it’s a timed instance, so it’s preferable that no one dies. If you beat the timer you get an extra boss which means an extra badge reward and a drake mount drop. Even though most players have the mount we still do the timely run just because it’s a fun challenge.

    Now, on to the problem, another of my WOW pet peeves is running with lazy people. Lazy as in their gear isn’t enchanted nor gemmed, especially if that someone was a healer or a tank. Our healer, a resto shaman, was a good example, the entire tier set weren’t gemmed nor enchanted. To add to the laziness the shaman was using rank 4 totems instead of rank 8, thanks to the RankWatch addon the tank had. When we asked the shaman to update his/her totem ranks we got a
    “I know what I’m doing” …. ah huh, sure sure, that’s why we wiped twice and failed the timer.

    Ninja Looter

    I pugged a 25 man TOC on my Shaman healer, figured maybe I’d get some nice level 245 upgrades. We had 3 tanks, 2 pallys and a warrior, who was also the raid leader. Problem started when I noticed he looted a Crusader Orb from a boss drop and never asked the raid to roll for it. However we did roll on the Trophy of the Crusade.

    Since no one said anything I let it go, but on the 2nd boss kill he did it again. Not only that he also told us he would take not ask but take a Trophy of the Crusade from the last boss just for being a raid leading, WHAT UTTER CRAP! One of my pet peeves is a Ninja looter, and he fits the profile so I called him out on looting the Crusader Orbs. Idiot denied looting them at first then blamed the “auto loot” when others started agreeing with me. I was the assigned enchanter to disenchant the unwanted items, he whispered me and demanded I give him all of the Abyss Crystals.

    I had 2 options:
    A. Do as I was told and become a dumb ass.
    OR
    B. Say EFF you, ask the raid to roll for the Abyss Crystals, and give them to the highest rollers then leave the raid.

    Of course I chose option B. the only fair and right thing to do. My list of bad tanks is getting longer, oh well. However I did win a nice healing ring, Ring of the Darkmender ๐Ÿ˜€

    UPDATE:

    Later a member from the ninja looter guild apologized to me, he said that the tank doesn’t represent his guild and he was known for stealing loots LOL.

    Leet Healer

    I didn’t feel like healing on my druid so I switched to moonkin spec. Thank God I got UK for the random daily heroic, very easy instance. Pally tank with excellent gearscore, 50k health,simply perfect. The rest of the group consisted of a mage and a DK, both well geared. Did I forget something? oh wait, hold on a second, the healer! what do we have here…..a Resto druid, awesome. But wait let me check his gear…very nice, a couple of 10/25 man TOC gear mostly 25, and 2 or 3 items from 10 man ICC. So after my inspection I concluded this run would be a breeze. Boy was I wrong!

    Problem:
    Healer was NOT in tree form! we pathetically wiped at the first boss and I tried very hard not to say anything, and I mean tried very hard. Pally tank told him to switch to tree form, did he listen? nope, continued to heal the way he did until we wiped at the second boss.

    Simple Solution:
    Kicked that idiot out of the group and I switched to healing ๐Ÿ™‚ That made me happy.

    My first heroic instance was Nexsus, we had 3 deathknights, and a duel spec shadow priest as back up heals just in case I screw up. The whole thing went smoothly and the entire group didn’t die, maybe because having 3 DKS and their armies of death made it easier for me to heal during boss fights. The group makeup is very important buffwise, overall the run went very well.
