An open letter to illiterate Tanks from a healer.
- I realize some of you were at the back of the line when the gods were handing out Intellect.
- I understand that some of you were bending over to tie your plate shoe laces (that can be hard, can’t it), and your brains got stuffed in the wrong end.
- I know this letter will be wasted, after all, you are illiterate, but maybe one of your mates will read it out to you.
That all said, I’m sure you understand the term mitigation. You know, like damage mitigation and wipe mitigation.
The 1st one you can look after yourself. A bit of armor here, dodge there, throw in a bit of parry and maybe a bubble or two and you ate all good.
In fact you don’t really have to try that hard, blizzard gives you blue and purple shinnies with it, buttons to press and even stuff in your trees (No! Not the one you are cutting down, your talent trees!).
Wipe mitigation will take a little bit more thought on your part, but don’t worry, I’m hear to help (more…)

Tip 1: JUST DO IT!
Definitely do it if you are still on the leveling grind, you will be picking up enough XP to make it a worthwhile diversion to your questing and grinding and you get access to epics. Epics which apart from being purple will be guaranteed upgrades more often than not.
The boys at ForTheHorde! reminded me that I needed to get back into Pee Vee Pee and not worry about the Transient Twinks, so I have been getting in and getting dirty.
Tip 2: Go Resto, Go!
I mentioned how much I was enjoying Elemental in BGs, but that doesn’t stop me shopping around. I even asked the question over at Addicted to Heals shaman blog.
Last night the decision was made for me due to Alzheimer’s (more…)

Selling houses, buying houses, flame striking Gnomes, totem dropping shamans, questing, grinding, instances and mates.
RL has been as messy as my WoW time and I am struggling to maintain a single thread of thought. I could just release the week of posts that were scheduled for last week… but that would require straight thinking.
Sold Mum’s house for more than expected. This is good because it will help to cover her debts which are more than expected.
There’s enough left over for us to hunt down and frost nova a house. Our choices are a bit limited and more than one real estate agent has scoffed at our budget or turned up their nose at the thought of cheap arses buying through them.
Bidding on a couple of houses in the bush just outside of Melbourne… next to where the devastating fires burned through earlier this year… cant be thinking straight.
Squidly has run quite a few instances as Resto. Only wiped once when our tank got a little cocky in ZF with the scarab beetles, and I was on the other side of a wall… Actually we didn’t wipe, I just lost 3 party members, then the DPS Pally and I cleaned up the rest.
My damage might not be high in Resto, but my DPS is often higher than other party members.
Yeah I get a little naughty and throw put the more than odd chain lightning, generally it’s too easy (more…)
