Nooby Day for Me

Hello All!

Haha. I’m starting this blog post with a Laugh. It may not be funny to you but I thought it was hilarious. First off something serious, my husband and son were sick yesterday. My husband had a sore throat (looked like Strep) while my son didn’t seem like himself. My husband still had stuff to do which involved him to be gone at most 3 hours. I was left in the house cleaning and taking care of our son. By the end of the day, I was exhausted and barely keep my eyes open. I ended up falling asleep in the recliner watching TV for about 2 1/2 hours. When I woke up, I had to give my son a bath and get him ready for bed. I got him off to bed and everything was great to start playing WoW. :)

Here’s where my funny nooby day started for me. I logged on my level 70 priest where my best friends, Deviltrigger & Lildevil asked me to come heal heroics with them. I didn’t have a level 80 ‘healer’. I had my warrior who was tank/DPS and my druid who (at the time) was Boomkin/Feral Tank. I said screw it and decided to respec my druid’s boomkin to a Resto druid. In my previous posts, I mentioned how much I kind of hate druid healing. I love healing in general, but Druid healing is my least favorite (and I suck at it). The constant spam of HoTs plus seeing the tank’s health ping-ponging back and forth freaks me out. It doesn’t help that I’m a druid healer with about 3.4K Gearscore. After respecing, putting abilities on my bars, and getting glyphs, I queued up with Lildevil’s hunter and Deviltrigger’s prot paladin. We ended up getting Heroic Halls of Lightning. I was a little scared because the group’s gearscore averaged around 3K plus like I said I hate druid healing. Let me remind you that I am still exhausted from my day that I was kind of zoning out and just out of it.

1) My husband was watching ‘All Worked Up‘ and explaining the show to me as I’m healing. Being as he was sick, I didn’t want him to think I was ignoring him. Not really good when I’m zoning out and healing on my least favorite healer. I ended up pulling the 1st boss with his 30% damage increase buff. We wiped. We ended up pulling the boss again with the 30% buff, but this time I was ready with my heals. We finish the instance with some deaths here and there but not wiping. I really tried my best to focus and concentrate.

2) After finishing the heroic run, Deviltrigger went to bed and It was just me and Lildevil. I figured I’d level my level 70 priest would be the next toon to level up. She’s my favorite healer. I wanted to do something with Lildevil but not dungeons because of the level gap between our toons. We ended up doing some Warsong Gulch runs. We queued up and lost the que because my WoW crashed RIGHT before the que popped. We queued up again and when I was sitting in our base, I realize I was only level 70 wioth 5.4K hitpoints with level 77+ players. Constantly dying was in my future. It doesn’t help that I didn’t have my Shoulders or Chest pieces. Wow…I never felt so noobish when I found that out. My BoE Shoulders and Chest Piece was on my level 60 mage. Surprisely though, with Lildevil’s resto shaman and my discipline priest…we survived some fights I thought I was going to get two shot. We won that Warsong Gulch, thanks to our “Healing them to Death” strategy :P (At least that’s what I believe)

3) We queued up again and we were still excited after the previous Warsong Gulch. As soon as I load into the battleground, I get a whisper saying I forgot my chest and shoulders…yea I forgot about them AGAIN. We only won that Warsong Gulch, Thanks the awesome healing of Redempta from Black Dragonflight, Lildevil and I. More so with Redempta for saving our butts…okay, mostly my butt being level 70 and all.

That’s the end of my nooby day. It may not have been funny to you, but it was to me since I hardly make mistakes like this. Now, I’m off to do dungeons on my priest and get her to level 80! Or possibly some Battlegrounds since I am planning on having her as my PvP toon. We’ll see.

P.S – Will update later with some pictures.

    On the bright side, you've probably forget enough to where you'll never forget reagents or putting up Divine's Fury ever. :D

    I forget heirlooms on other characters all the time it seems. Especially when you're levelling more than one and send them between. I once queued up to tank on my druid only to realise I wasn't wearing my chest and shoulders. Ooops?
