Holy Nova, Batman! The bug is gonna blow!

Remember when we talked about committing Priesticide on Heroic Anub’arak 10? Well, I never really got to try it tonight; however, I will say, with the Glyph of Spirit of Redemption, my ghost stays up for quite a long time!

We tried the Holy Nova trick thus, me never really dying, and it worked better than what we did last week.  We all sort of group up behind the boss, and I don’t really spam Holy Nova.  I watch the raid’s health and hit it as needed.   It also does a little damage to the scarab.  Of course, with adds up, someone has to keep spamming the tanks.   I try to keep hots on them and Guardian Spirit, but the other two healers keep dying from the adds.  (We have not ventured ito two healing it yet!)

We got the scarab down to 7%!  That’s quite an improvement from 10%… um… yeah.  But still, I think we will get him tomorrow night.  He has to die at some point, and his death might as well be BEFORE the predicted drop date of Patch 3.3.

The only problem is Penetrating Cold, for which Bob Turkey suggests:

As holy i’d probably FH one person with Penetrating Cold, FH the other then PoH the non-tank group. Finally CoH the lowest person in the tank group and PoM the next lowest person.. Or something like that.

I’ve been doing some of that in previous attempts, and it seems the Penetrating Cold is really getting to us.  We will see…

Wish us luck!

Happy Raiding!


Priest-icide… FTW!

So, I was looking at Doug’s suggestion the other day about healing Phase 3 of Anub’arak in Spirit of Redemption form.   Doug wrote:

 A Holy “trick” you can pull is to intentionally let yourself “die” and finish out the fight in Spirit of Redemption form, tossing Guardian Spirit on the tank as it expires.

So, I figure if I use Glyph of Spirit of Redemption for this fight, then I could “live” for an extra 21 seconds without fear of “dying.”  I could just concentrate on healing and hopefully not get sweaty palms. 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

Priest Healing Trial of the Crusader Part One

I’ve been seeing a lot of searches for the title of this post. While I do not claim to be an expert, I’ve been healing the 10 and 25-regular of this for months and months.  I have done 10 and 25 heroic for while, too.  More success in hero 10 than 25 hero though- LOL.

Anyway.. I figured I would walk you through what I do during the fights.  Gormak, the worms and Icehowl are up first! Continue reading

Update: We are getting close

After several more wipes in ToGC 25, my ToGC 10 group worked on Anub’arak.  Got him down to 27%.  We actually saw the Leeching Swarm this time!  That’s progress.  Yay!  G’night!

Scarabs Suck

I feel the need to  mention how much I hate Anub’arak on Trial of the Grand Crusader 10.  In our ToGC 25, we got our first kill on the Beasts just last week.  So we won’t be seeing him there anytime soon; however, both of our 10-man groups are OH.CO.CLOSE!

Last night, we got him to 37%… and the mofo burrowed on us! Continue reading

Heroic Northrend Beasts DOWN!

I had lots of lag tonight.. but I am happy I was here for the guild’s FIRST kill in Trial of the Grand Crusader 25!  Way to go, WKN!  The entire fight was quite nerve wracking. Between being snobolled, dodging worms, and healing up the raid after the very epic Icehowl Massive Crash- we got the job done.

Levitate is your friend!
We usually start the fight with the priests levitating all the ranged toons. Continue reading
