Wow that was crazy.

I gained a ton of honor. I think about 4-5k worth. I -know- I gained about 700k xp off of two dailies and then battlegrounds. I ran AV and AB over and over for about 4 hours.

And I healed my everliving heart-out.

I'm no longer feeling invincible... enough rogues and mages ate me up to dispell that feeling...but I -am- feeling awesome. I was complemented several times and happily lead healing in every BG where I was there from the start.

The last one is always the most memorable but this one more so then some.

Picture this:

AV score 250 to 250 or so. Alliance charges drek. Gets him to about 40% and then the tank drops... a wipe... except? Every single one spawns ... at Dun Blargrhrjmmdjklj way the heck up north. Yeah.... The furthest graveyard from drek...and 30 alliance players find themselves there.... zero near drek.

So we say screw it and just mass out and meet them on the road. And for 40 min or so it seemed slug it out. We win on points...after we get 250 points 1 kill at a time. I had about 840k healed at the end maybe more. There were two other healers in that fight with me(that had a noticable impact). A druid and a priest... they had about the same healed(700k and 500k?).

Yeah I healed a bunch tonight. Sometimes solo...sometimes with buddies....sometimes 40 people at once...others just the one. And never felt better about grinding xp. This is way more fun than questing. You just get gear at about 1/80th the rate.

The Orclette in an outfit her mother once wore. She is in a marvelous mood this morning wanting "some more" and "to run with mommy"(after I showed her mommy's toon and she saw it running through SW).
And yay 8/8 of my Battlecaster set! I have a FULL SET THAT MATCHES.

I have arrived.

Beware the Leopard.

But don't panic.

Anyways. Love the tree. Love 3 hordies(hunter, rogue, warlock) trying to kill me for 5 min while I sat and healed through their dps. Just them...and me.... and my treeness.

Walked away with a 1/0 WG win. Yay for us healers(there were 3-5 of us) and our indomitable healyness.

Oh and I rocked the charts with double the healing of anyone else. Those first 5 min may have helped I think. Innervated twice. Happy days.

Anyways... I hate the fact that the LFG tool won't let me create a party with level 80's and join the random dungeon. Any time we've tried we've ended up just sitting and being told over and over that one or more members do not match the requirements for the dungeon.

And yes we are NOT on heroic. Ended up doing Occulus by me being leader and selecting it(not random) and ToC by walking to the instance and jumping in.

Newest newsies.

I got to heal a regular ToC. I've healed some Drak'a'ma'blah'blah instance. And I continue to heal battlegrounds. I can actually claim to be a healer.

Parallel has been a wonderous guild so far very relaxed. I'm fairly happy with staying on server.

My druid now has 5/8 Overcaster Battlegear and has over 1k spellpower in treeform unbuffed.

And thats it. I've got to hold munchkins and do holiday things.

Vacation First day without driving.

We made it to Houston visitin Ishvi on the way. His fiance is charming and the orclette and Wulfa both fell in love with her.

My priesty is level 8 now. Yay!

Watched Alien. It was interesting as I had already read the book and watched a few of the other books.

I'm enjoying vacation even if Texas is making us cry tears of longing. We really wish we had stayed but there isn't any way now we could be back in the next four years.

Going running tomorrow and doing a lot of pushups.

Spent a lot of time talking with my brother-in-law about the US and our world cup draw and possible crazy situations(like US meeting Mexico in the final which is theoretically possible but so incredibly NOT happening).

And now I have to give wulfa the laptop.
