How are you doing?

I hope all is well with all of you, and I hope this post finds all of you kicking whatever is left of ICC in the arse.  For many it will be the last few bosses of ICC that will get the best of them, but don’t give up, the finish line is closer than you might think.  I find that we are all in the lag period before the expansion pack.  For me, I have also been distracted.  We’re moving to a new house, and I really haven’t time to think about raids between that and work.  Buying a house is a stressful process!  It was worse than any defile LK ever put on my toon.. seriously.  🙂

I just wanted to see how everyone is doing out there in the blogosphere.  What are your thoughts on Cataclysm?  Will you be a Worgen?  How are your raids?  Heroic ICC  kicking your butt?  Any fab loot to speak of?   Any new healing techniques I should know about?  Anything.. at all?  Anyone wanna write something and post it here?  LOL

Hope to hear from you soon!

Smooches and Happy Raiding!

Easily Defiled but Not Broken

I haven’t posted much of anything lately, but I had a quick break and figured I would share what helped me make it through the Lich King and all his Defiles.  And for those who haven’t killed him yet, I hope my tips will help you and your guild make it through.  I think I got like three of those Defile things last night- and I didn’t wipe the raid!  It’s a miracle!  LOL

I remember writing more than a month ago that this fight and the Defiles was all about pre-moving.  I still believe this is true, but let me take you step by step of how I deal with this phase of the fight.  TankSpot is spot on when the guide says, “Phase 2 is all about handling defiles and proper slows.”  To avoid wiping the raid (fingers crossed everytime) and possibly being docked DKP, I did the following: Continue reading

Kingslayer, Baby!

Finally!

Lich King Ain't Got Nuthin' On Me!

Anyone there?

I am guessing “no” as I pretty much abandoned this blog, cut back on my playing time, sort of started working out, and got back to doing other things I really enjoy. Like reading!   Let me see… The Kiterunner, The Immortal Life of Hattie Lacks, and a bit of Tom Sawyer.  I also watched The Kiterunner movie.. it made me cry.  My husband likes to make me play the new Resident Evil game- which gives me nightmares.  I hate zombies.  I’ve also become quite a fan of HGTV lately.  So outside of WoW, I’ve been halfway living life as I did pre-WoW.  I have to say.. it’s been nice.  I lost weight and everything!  LOL 

My poor DK still transmutes, but she does little else.  Although, today she did get a new weapon and a new rep ring from AV.  All I did was log her on to transmute, and an old friend immediately sent her an invite to ICC.  I was like, “o…k….”  I almost forgot how to play her, but I quickly got into the groove of things.  It was fun.

LK Lives

On my main, Exanna, I only raid three days a week now- which has been a nice break!  And in pretty much prick-less guild- so that helps, too!  We got LK to 30-something-percent last week, so I am guessing that effer will die soon.  OMG!  I can only hope.  Defile has proven to be a real bitch- but we are getting the hang of it.  It’s nice to Body-and-Soul out of stupidity!

Renew This

In other news- my healing is now very renew, CoH, and PoH heavy.  However, again it always depends on the fight, and it also depends on knowing exactly when damage will spike.  Changing servers has really challenged me to be a better healer.  I feel like I need more crit though.  So we will see.

That’s it for now.  Hope all is well out there!

Happy Raiding!
