Druid

So I got my homework moderately under control and was able to play with the Wulfa last night. Found out that my guildies are absolute raiding BEASTS as they rofl stomped bits of ICC while I watched in awe and while wulfa was busy running back and forth keeping miniorc asleep.

So now that we've been playing again I've done 17 battlegrounds on my druid. 2-15 is my record. I gained about 250 honor in two games... and about 250 honor in fifteen games... feel free to speculate which were which. Part of that is the losing games were lost so badly that they were over in easily a quarter of the time that the winning games were played. Part of that is my life span as a healer is higher than that as a dps.... usually because I'm either the only healer or one of two healers so when I'm dps there simply isn't anyone healing me because I'm not there as a healer.

Healing as druid has a lot of fun now(still), let me say that first. I'm back healing again and mostly loving it in bg's. I like it in raids too but that has more to do with my guildies being amazing than with my love of healing.... I really don't like raid healing due to stress levels. I don't like how lifebloom only lets you pick one target(p.s. I didn't even bother with treeform. I'm a pvp healer and adding one more thing to make me stickout isn't happening). I do like how much more rejuv does. I don't especially like the long cooldown on wild growth but considering i used it like rejuv before it probably needed it. I really really really don't like the crazy long cast time on nourish. Maybe I had it glyphed before or something but now it feels twice as long. I like the new thorns when i remember to use it.

Boomkin is so much fun that I stayed uglychicken for 15 games of pvp(*cough*). I absolutely adore the new eclipse mechanic and thing blizz hit a homerun with that. GG bliz GG.

I've been burning honor as fast as possible and almost have a complete set of purples now. I'm hoping to have a complete pvp set soon.... provided I get some wins.

Speaking of healing in bg's. If you are doing it right it feels like you have 5-10 minions/pets that you control who walk out and kill things for you. You burn through areas... send a minion to go smack that guy over there... and demand a minion come protect this flag over here... and generally control the game simply by your presence. Because where you aren't..... they die. So they stop just randomly being stupid.

oh... wow.... I almost said that with a straight face.... it is like having minions... but the rest... hahahahahahhahaahahahah.

Anyways... I really want to get my complete pvp set and then the heirloom pvp staff/shoulders(cloth). But I'm having a blast getting them as opposed to feeling like I'm endlessly grinding quests(I'm looking at you crusader).

Timing is everything.

The patch hitting in the middle of the semester is driving me bonkers. I want nothing more than to log in and play all night but I can't.

Initial impressions though from me go like this:

HOLY CRAP THIS IS AWESOME FUN.

I love new changes to things.

Goods:
Paladin retribution was the only class I had a chance to really experiment with but I like the changes(in terms of how they play not in terms of over all dps... I'm not really a cutting edge dps person so I can't comment on lower dps totals for guys who were doing nuts things).

Haven't touched my hunter yet but being able to track two things at once and no ammo sounds awesome.

My mage having a squiggly made me estatic(water elemental) as thats why I created a mage in the first place.

My druid... well I'm hearing all sorts of cool things from Malcik so this gets a plus. I never really really liked the tree form's art but liked being in tree form so I'm kinda meh on that side. The cat changes he described were shiny though.

Bads:
My warlock's talents kinda turned me further away from the class ... mostly because nothing really struck me as awesome. Thats cool though someone probably loves the changes.

My shaman was the same story as my lock... I just didn't see enough fun stuff to cause me to invest time further looking at it. I've never liked lava lash and that being the free gift for enhance was ick.

My warrior.... we'll see. The talents were both interesting/awesome and boring. I think it may be a mood thing.


Others:
I don't really have a priest, DK or a rogue so no dice there.

===========================================================

Just found out how much homework I have this weekend. Sigh. So even less playing/posting than I thought I would be getting. :(

Bah.

The library is closed for happy pro-slavery, mass-murdering inquisitor day....

P.S.

The current theme is a test until Wulfa gets home to tell me to change it.

Hold them captive.

I should totally kidnap all my guildies and make them reroll horde. I mean heck... in two months they're gonna have TROLL DRUIDS AND TAUREN PALADINS AND FORSAKEN HUNTERS. I'm so envious.... I mean alliance get worgen who kick the butt of the horde's new race BUT: TAUREN PALADINS

Yeah I know where I want to be.

If you are in parallel and reading this I expect a full reroll of all your toons starting immediantly! :P

Crusader is going well though in other news. Stormwind and Darnassus down. The other three still to go.

Mini-orc has this sly smile now. He's deffinately a little man now. He's all grunty and yelly at movies and grunty and bouncy to songs.

Orclette has been potty training so well she's wearing big girl panties now. Which is a huge big for us. Still with the pullups at night though.

Adjective much?

{post edited by Dammerung}

I shouldn't write whiny posts when I'm tired and or fussy. It really isn't a good practice mentally.

The truth is I've been tired and whiny a lot lately and need to start working on my mental discipline. Whining about how miserable or sad or tired or etc you are only encourages other people to whine and very shortly you have a bunch of friends/coworkers who do nothing but complain. I know better and shall begin to stop this bad habit.
