Couple of Notes

It's been a while. Again. I know. Life's been busy, and I've been trying to sort out stuff in my relationships as well... But that's irrelevant.

In WoW:

Now that I've gone resto (as of last night, actually), one of the best pieces of news in feral history (okay, in a while)... On the PTR:

Swipe: This ability will no longer strike any secondary targets which are under the effect of crowd-control spells that break on taking damage. i.e. Polymorph, Sap, etc.

This will be absolutely amazing for feral druids, and give those of us (-coughs-me-coughs-) a fantastic reason to use swipe more! This also applies to Multi-Shot (hunters), Avenger's Shield (paladins), Chain Lightning (shamans), Felguard Cleave (warlocks), and Cleave (warriors). Which means, as BBB has pointed out, no more mages (again, such as myself) hating the group because SOMEONE broke their sheep on accident! Okay. It'll probably still happen as there are still idiots out there, but... Less so! Oh, happy days for the druid AND the mage!

And the best thing that has come to the land of WoW music for a while has to go to BBB for his adaptation of a Johnny Cash song... (Click the link to his site to hear!)

Right. Enough with the Big Bear Butt. Really. Just because I am missing my own (although the tree is very pretty!) doesn't mean I have to haunt BBB's blog!

A-yup. That's right. I am a tree now, and am slowly starting to realize that I can heal heroics. (Something I should have known ages ago, as my gear hasn't improved too much since I last was resto, but ah well). Here are my stats as a resto druid:
Stamina: 411
Intellect: 494
Spirit: 526
+Healing: 1302
Mana Regen: 341

With Mark of the Wild and my [Nightstaff of the Everliving] (the enchant is 30 intellect) on. With my [Gavel of Pure Light] (and +81 healing) and [Windcaller's Orb], it would be:
Stamina: 390
Intellect: 458
Spirit: 477
+Healing: 1398
Mana Regen: 321

So really, the Nightstaff is better, and would be even better had I enchanted it with healing, but lack of materials for that, and now, lack of actually being able to farm well as a resto druid... well. It probably won't get done. Besides. I worked hard for those two exalted items...

You have no idea how much of a jolt I get seeing you comment in a non-"ICK!" way about the song... lol.

Especially seeing you mention me on your kick-ass blog. That kind of thing always surprises the heck out of me.

So... why did you switch to Resto again? And what are your thoughts on hte new 2.4 Mana regen changes? Do you think you'll be kicking even more butt healing in heroics?

Comee... join uss.... Brains.....

Anyway, sorry... have a great weekend!

o.o It's BBB! It is a pretty fantastic off-take, I have to say again, and major kudos to you for having the guts to do that!

As for those questions, they are good ones, and I think I'll make them my blog post of the day... something more relevant to WoW than just tales of fools and my adventures.
