    Time, and Lack Thereof

    I know I haven’t written in ages. And ages. Like a lot of people, usually I do blog updates at work…at lunch, in that last half-hour at days end, etc. I haven’t been able to go out at lunch for ages, and to be honest if I had the time I wouldn’t have two brain cells to rub together to try to initiate a post. This sucks. :/

    I have been playing. Ravven, my very first character ever created, my old raiding main up through Serpentshrine, finally hit 80. (I abandoned her when I was finally allowed to switch to my hunter Kitsune, my love, and I’ve never looked back since. Poor Ravven.)

    The Recruit a Friend project characters are levelling a lot more slowly now, but we’re still playing together and are looking at 74. I’m still enjoying the shammy, although I have come to understand the importance of stacking tons of haste. Frickin’ slowest cast times EVAH.

    All in all, things are ok. Not fun, fo’ sho’, but ok.

    I’m a Big Fat Chicken

    My pally finally hit 80 last night, having languished in the forgotten-alt no man’s land for ages. The first thing I did was to purchase dual talent specialisation.

    Now, I’d intended on dual-speccing her for protection and holy. I had no desire to play her as melee dps, and I figured that I’d always get groups if I could go as either a tank or a healer. But then…but then…I chickened out. As a so called friend kindly pointed out, I have the *worst* memory ever, and undeniably the *WORST* sense of direction in history. You know those wipe nights when you die over and over again on the same encounter? Each time after ressing, I have this momentary confusion about which way to go in order to rejoin the group. Every. Single. Time. It would be pathetic if it weren’t funny.

    So. All in all, probably not the most desirable quality in a tank. Plus, all runs nowadays in Warcraft seem to be speed runs, and I just don’t want to try speed run as well as figuring out who, where, and what to pull, as well as marking.

    So, I guess I’ll learn to be a healer. :D After playing a pally to level 80, and a priest to level 70-something, I have never, ever tried to heal. Not even once. So, if you’re in a group and you have Kestraal as your healer, take my advice and run.

    You’ve been warned. :D
