This past weekend I went with the guild group to Firelands, because there were some people missing and needed some warm bodies. Sousa is my most geared toon though he is still toting around a few heroic level items. I took him along to help heal and switch to DPS as needed.
Having only done some trash on Rossini before, I had no idea what any of the boss fights were like. I’ve read lots of blogs so I had some idea of a few things. Like, I knew there were feathers on Alys and that there’s some cat/scorpion phase thing…and lots of spiders.
Anyways, here’s my recap of what happened, according to Sousa.
Shannox – Heals! OMG why do you guys keep running out of range! So much fire on the ground. Ouch.
Beth – Heals! Spiders everywhere. Stack on butt. “I made some rain you guys! I hope you like it!”
Rock dude? – There’s right leg and a left leg, tank them apart and he’ll fall down? I don’t know, don’t get in fire? “Heal everyone.” Neat?
Alys – DPS! Interrupt the druids! Yay! Tornadoes are fun!
Fire demon guy? – DPS! Don’t go by some crystals! DON’T STAND BY THE DOOR!!
Domo – Heals! Stack up! Make rain! Run out? Too slow. Try again, more rain!! Pounced! Hold hands! Don’t hold hands! She loves me, she loves me not! So much rain making.
Ragnaros – DPS! Okay, hammer smash, not by me…lava wave? WTF? Try again. This time not lava wave death. Don’t touch the hammer! Good! Stack up and AOE…wtf is AOE on an enhancement shaman? Totems LOL? Attack! Death. Game over for us.
So we ended up 6/7. Not so bad for my second time ever in Firelands. I’m pretty amazing with my rain making. Just saying.
But seriously, thanks to the guild for being patient with my noobness and my potentially crappy heals. Having never healed a raid before on my shaman I wasn’t quite up to speed on what I should be focusing on and what I shouldn’t be. In 5-mans for example, I almost never use chain heal because everyone is not holding hands and it hits like one person. But in raids, everyone is holding hands! I make way more rain than I should in a 5-man, so that was easy to do in the raid too. It was a lot of fun healing with Kerick, because I knew she’d save us if I was busy floor tanking with Bocat and/or Grom. I’m teasing!! 😉
Thanks again, good times and pretty dresses.
