LOLdps for the Holy Pally

I play Warcraft to entertain myself. I am -not- a healbot nor a buffbot. I heal in 5-mans and in Kara but that’s not the only thing I do. I farm, grind, and I’m still completing quests. To this end my build has a primary focus and a secondary focus.

Primary focus: Have all of the talents I see as critical to being the best healer I can be.
Secondary focus: Grab enough talents to improve my DPS and make soloing less painful.

Trivial vs non-trivial

In the grand scheme of things, Brewfest is trivial. It’s a fun little event where you can “drink beer”, “get drunk” and ride a racing ram. It’s fun but it’s not crucial to the game. At least not in the “must get to 70, get flying mount, and raid uber-stuff” sort of crucial sense.

That said.. it’s fun. The racing rams are a hoot. Throwing beer steins at the attacking dwarves.. another hoot… shooting pink elekks… eeh, not so fun.. but relatively easy.

What does it mean when thing that are trivial are bugged? Bugged in a big way.

Random

I’m very amused by the idea of a cute little pink pompom-haired gnome Warrior tank. It just amuses me. If I didn’t already have my fill of alts.. and if I wasn’t so un-thrilled at the idea of playing a Warrior.. I’d roll one.

Farmer Tatia

We only had 8 people on so instead of tagging Maiden again we broke up into one 5-man and “three other people who wandered off to find things to amuse themselves”. Tatia was in the “amuse myself” group.

Someone..in their blog.. and I’ve forgotten which one (grr) wrote about a relatively easy to farm place for [...]
