That VuhDo That You Do

So, my Healbot broke three weeks ago.  It was there one minute in a raid and then gone the next.  I tried to get rid of it and re-download it, but I just couldn’t get it to work on my PC.  Unfortunately, I was going into another raid at the time.   Luckily, I still had VuhDo in my add-ons.  I tried it out once at the behest of my friend Soliss the Shaman.  She seemed to like it.  I, however, did not so I disabled it.  Thank goodness I did not delete it because it was all I had to heal.  (Yeah, the rudimentary healing thing never really worked out.)

Yeah, um, Exxy, you were supposed to HEAL him.

I’ve been using VuhDo ever since, and I have to say it’s okay.  I am slowly figuring out how to make it do what I want it to do, and it does some things better than Healbot.  I am really liking the way it keeps tracks of missing buffs or how it counts down my bubble.

People who read this or know me are well aware how much I LOVE Healbot, but I had to let it go.  I don’t know why it stopped working for me.  Other people have said it works just fine for them.  The raid frames just do not exist anymore on my ‘puter.

So, now I am on to Vuhdo.  Maybe you should try it, too.

Happy Raiding!

New Guide Coming Soon

I will start working on a Priest Healing Guide for Icecrown very soon.  I just need to get comfortable enough with what I am doing on the various bosses before I pass anything along.  When I wrote the ToC25 Guide, I was at the point that I knew it like the back of my hand.  In fact, I could probably recite it to you right now, but I won’t. 🙂  Just click the link if you need to. 

 

Now I can pug in a pug with my pug

Meet Pugnahstee, pronounced puge-nah-STEE. I call her Nasty for short.

I got “Pugnahstee” today, and I am so proud of her.  She is much more well behaved than my RL dog who does the boot scootin’ boogie herself from time to time, too.  Anyone with a small dog knows the results of that are not always nice and do not smell all that great!  “Nasty” does this periodically in public but at least we don’t have to smell the “end” result!  So, welcome to the family, “Nasty”!

 

Festergut 25 Tonight

Back on Uncle Fester tonight.  Seeing him go down in 10-man and taking the healing strategy from there and applying it tonight should help out a bit.  I look forward- oh boy do I- to reporting a kill later tonight.  Wish us well, will you, please? 

OMG.. Shout Out!

So I was poking around the web and realized Mike Schramm mentioned my Oculus post on his blog.  Woot!  Mike, if you ever come back by here… thanks a bunch.  I got some new eyes this week thanks to you.  Mike Schramm wrote for WoW.com and recently moved over to Joystiq  .  You can find his blog here.  Of course, all the new people already knew that, right? 🙂 

Speaking of The Oculus

Since my initial post, I gave The Big O a try, and now that we are so OP, it’s not so bad.  You still need to have someone in the group who knows what the heck to do!  As for the reward at the end?  I have seen a pug get the mount only once, and I get some nice gems that my DK can transmute to epics.  So how did I feel when it was over?  I still feel empty inside, but my pockets, i.e. bags, are fatter for it.  So it’s all good.  I seem to get dumped into The Oculus daily now.  It’s like Blizzard is playing a cruel joke on me.. and all the others who hate it.  After a while, I will know it like the back of my hand, and it won’t hurt so bad.  I think the reward bag has helped a lot though.  None of the folks in my groups have dropped yet.  Congrats, Blizz, you win. 

My DK Can Tank Now

I did it.  I made the ultimate melee leap by officially making DanityKane tank.  She did four or five instances yesterday, and I must say: I did ok.  I need to work on the NPC’s that occasionally get away.  As a healer, I know how BAD that can be, but the people I ran with were very complimentary.  Hubby went with me on a few runs so he could take over in case I screwed up royally.  I tanked UK, UP, Nexus and something else, and they all went surprisingly well.  So now, there is an extra tank in guild for people who seem to get stuck in the LFG queue.  Luckily, Blizzard has made it easy to gear up in T-9 quickly with all the Emblems of Triumph we get now.  Thanks! 

Gear Score Add-Ons

Speaking of which…  I keep hearing trade chatter of people LFM with a minimum gear score requirement.  Some want WoW-Heroes scores.  Others are using a frickin’ add-on to basically count you out before you can even say, “Mother, may I?” I say this because it happened to DPS DanityKane this past week.  I was looking to get in a trash run for ICC, and the RL told me to come to Krasus Landing “So we can talk a bit.”  He only wanted to run my toon through his GS machine.  LOL.  “Sorry,we’re looking for minimum 4500.”  I think I am right below that.    DanityKane has been on ICC trash runs before as DPS.  She holds her own.  LOL.  I know, I know.  I got over it, and I understand completely! 

 So I went to check one of these add-ons out.  (This link refuses to work!) It has a very interesting set up, but I say people can have all the best gear in the world and still not know how to play.  I can also tell you from personal experience that people with low gear scores may do better than you think.   I am curious to read what you guys think about this. 

Last But Not Least

Check out BobTurkey’s 3.3 holy priest gear list.  Sweet! 

Happy Raiding!

Rudimentary Healing

I guess you could call it “Old School Healing.”  “Healing Without A Crutch”.. sans Healbot and Grid.  The thought of it freaks me out, and I am actually embarrassed to admit it.

But I have been faced with this twice this week, and I have failed miserably.

“Domo Arigato, Mr. Healbot-O”

As you may know, I love Healbot. Getting started with the mod can seem like a daunting task for a priest.  We have a lot of spells to program, but once you get it done, healing is cake.

There is a pally in our guild who would not use mods.  He shunned them to heal it old-school.  Recently, he gave in, and Healbot blew his mind!  I remember him saying something about not having his heals sniped anymore?
