But I don't want to share!

Let me start this post off by saying Marariel, I love you, I really do.

Anyways, Guess what I found out this week? Affliction Warlocks and Shadow Priests share almost the exact same BiS loot table.
I kid you not, Everything that is a drop (Including Tier tokens, damn you Blizzard) that is BiS for my shadow priest spec, is also BiS for Mara. The only exception here is the weapon. Apparently This Stick is better for a warlock instead of a MH/OH combo. (Granted, my BiS Weapon is a hammer, and my OH probably has spirit on it, neither of which are good for warlocks)

Lucky for us, our guild uses Suicide Kings loot system, which basically means that Mara and I (and the other two priests) will take turns getting the loot we want.. Even though 6 of our pieces come from Majordomo and Rag. /sigh

Casting Resurrection on Blog!!

So Blogging? I haven't blogged since the end of Wrath. And I tell myself that every time I hit a large milestone that I'm gong to start blogging again. So here's attempt number... 3?

Meet Ashe. Resident of Team Heals over at Eff the Ineffable. She didn't start over there though, once, she was a lowly alt over on Hydraxis, rolled because trying to raid (or even dungeon) with 3 core ranged DPS (and that's about it at the time) was not going to happen!

When the cataclysm hit, her guild went through a lot of changes, and then it was decided to transfer over to another guild.. Then another.. Until Finally, she found a home with her old guild mates Takk, Sen and Mara over at EtI. So she packed up all of her things, brought over some heirlooms with her just in case, and she was sucked up through the Internets (Probably the 4th or 5th dimension) and landed on US-Azuremyst.

Now, Ashe is not only a healer, but a face melting shadow priest when she is needed, which is what she was called on to do tonight! Our Blackwing Descent cleanup was tonight, and through Atramedies, she was happily melting as many faces of as many bad guys as she could.

Then, one of our healers stepped out so that a DPS could come in and get achievement from Chimaeron, so if we gain a DPS,and lose a healer, Ashe is the one who gets to switch, being raid ready in both her heal and shadow specs.

So Chimaeron went by smoothly, Ashe healed the Double Attack tank, (And was sad because that fight is not good for smite-healing). We went to Nef, and then it got messy.

The first attempt, There was only a Tank with Ashe at her pillar. Now Lol-smiting can do some dps.. but only around 4k usually. Needless to say that attempt didn't go well. Then a few more wipes happened for silly reasons here or there (also for caster dps with instants, don't cast as you're falling into the pit with Ony to get your dots or whatever up on her asap. You get aggro pretty quickly, and Ashe even got hollered at for doing this in previous guilds, Whoops!)

Then, I don't know how we did it, but the Effers managed to break Vent. Then we broke BWD. Not like we won, but Nefarian actually forgot that he was supposed to attack the target with the most threat. Orv had tons of threat, and all of the healers faces kept getting nommed on, Nef wouldn't move from the middle, and he just decided he was going to do whatever he felt like instead of paying attention to things like Threat. Whoops.

Good job Eff the Ineffable, we broke Nefarian.
