Uncle Fester 25 Lives

He won’t die.  I am so frustrated I don’t know what to do.  Of course, we were missing some key players last night on the healing side- some due to obligations, others due to something else, even more still who just are not showing up.   The DPS was fine, but we had a snafu with one of our main tank healers and ended up bringing in an alt.  The alt did fine, and we appreciate him switching out his main to help us cover the heals, but it was the wrong comp last night.  We were also missing our main shammy heals and a tree who was present the night before.  Our main tree (who will be on sabbatical soon) was doing well as ususal but it just did not work last night.

Time To Recruit?

It used to be we were heavy on the heals, but methinks we will have to start recruiting again.  We had a bad situation last night, and it doesn’t look like it will change anytime soon.  Seems to happen more often on Mondays than not, and those days have to be “press forward days” because of the reset.  Speaking of which, maybe we will get back to him tonight and hopefully any account issues will be resolved.

TYVM, Blizz!

From Blizz by way of MMO-Champion:

The Culling of Stratholme
We plan to do something to allow players a quicker start to this dungeon, however, the fix to the scripting is more complicated than the changes we’re making to some of the other dungeons and likely will not be ready for the next minor patch.

Thank goodness.  It used to be the.longest.start.ever.  Or shall I say the…………………… longest…………………… staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa………………………………

Happy Raiding!




Tonight, I feel sad.

Tonight, I feel sick.

I am stuck at work while the guildies push through new content.  I was looking forward to getting in there and owning Festergut, Rotface, and even Prof. Putricide, but here I sit waiting on my shift- which has gone way over BTW- to end.  The life of a TV reporter is seldom boring so I enjoy it, but tonight, it bit me in my booty.  Hey, someone has to cover the news, right?  Yeah, but a holy priest needs to raid, too!

How we killed Saurfang the Saur-puss

*****UPDATE: Discipline Priest Bubble Works Wonders!*****

We were finally able to down Saurfang Deathbringer.  You may recall a few days ago I told you about all the “shenanigans” we pulled in previous failed attempts.

We did have tank healers for the tanks and also “tank” healers for the targets of the Mark of the Fallen Champion. Each raid healer was assigned to focus on each Mark; however, we decided before the raid that we would let the target of Mark #1 die as long as it was not a healer.

Luckily for us, it landed on a rogue.  Continue reading

Priest Busy Work–> Ashen Verdict Rep On Farm

My Ashen Verdict rep is ever so slowly ticking upwards, and it seems I don’t have the time to really make it go any faster.  Exanna has been very busy with all of the new features in Patch 3.3.   The Random Heroic Daily, farming The Battered Hilt, still trying to do my regular dailies while maintaining a full-time job and trying to get some sleep!  So much to do!

The answer may be farming ICC trash in 10-mans on off-nights.  (Let’s go, Hubby! ) Continue reading

Priest Healing Trial of the Crusader Part Four


Ahh, Anub’arak.  I really don’t know where to start- mainly because we are STILL trying to down the bloody bugger in the heroic 10 version.  10 and 25 regular?  Not a problem at all.  But in hero 10- we got the filthy scarab down to 10-frickin-% last night. 


Anyhoo.. now that I have vented about hero versions of bugs I can’t stand, I will talk to you about the regular versions who die on a weekly basis.  If you are looking for previous bosses are found at these links: Northrend Beasts, Jaraxxus and Faction Champs, Twin Val’kyr. Continue reading

Priest Healing Trial of the Crusader Part Three

We are now on the Twin Val’kyr.  You can find the Northrend Beasts here and Lord Jaraxxus here.

Twin Val’kyr

This fight confuses me most of the time, but I usually start off with the Dark Essence.  Of course, tehre are times when I start off with Light Essence.  It all depends on my assignment.  I do not change unless DBM- or a very knowledgeable raid leader- tells me to do so.  Continue reading

Priest Healing Trial of the Crusader Part Two

This is Part Two of Priest Healing Trial of the Crusader.  You can find Part One here.


“Trifling gnome..  You face Jaraxxus!”

The raid leader usually spreads us out in groups of two around the star’s points on the floor and tanks the guy in the middle.  I turn on /range to make sure I am not close to anyone but my partner.  Continue reading
