Look at that corpse right there. Do you know who that is? Arch Druid Staghelm, most arrogant, nasty, rude, ignorant, level 10 baby druid abusing jerk on Azeroth. And he is DEAD! That’s right, DEAD. I’ve waited six long years to kill that bastard after the way he treated my druid at level 10 on her bear form quest, and the way he talked about Tyrande. You’ll see Kae from Shades of Kae standing there, and that Pally down there tickling Staghelm’s feet, or stealing his shoes would be our fearless raid leader Twice. It may not have been the druid that killed him, but it was one of the team.
My priest. Jesswyn. I don’t know how it happened, but I have completely fallen in love with the priest class. I know, I’ve played a priest, on and off, and even deleted her once, for the last four years. But I never fully enjoyed her, until I went full shadow. Then they screwed that spec up with crit and I deleted her. But Blizz restored her a year after. I recently just leveled her to 85. She hasn’t been used since she was horde side with The Purge. The last thing she raided was Naxx. Before that? Kara.
Now, I don’t know what happened. But it just clicks. I find boss strategies easier to pick up with her, I don’t get flustered as much with spell rotation when I have to move or stop casting. Maybe it’s because I’m not also trying to concentrate on HoT uptime and healthbars in an unfamiliar healing role like I ended up doing with Jessmyn the Druid after the resto changes? I don’t know. All I know is…the class I resented for so long, the toon that I had such bad memories of a former guild explosion with, is my main. The guy that taught me how to heal as a priest, and how to start off as shadow, and listened to me gripe for all those years would be laughing his ass of at me right now. If he still played. Kinda miss that guy
Since patch day, I’ve spent many hours in PvP to get her transmog set, and many more to get justice points and get her geared up a bit. I’ve run the new heroics, and got to be with my guildies in learning the new raid encounters. And we absolutely steamrolled Firelands. I forgot how much fun that is, even though by end time last night I was almost face to keyboard from a stupid cold.
