Well my priest alt hit 80 today. Thanks to a couple of guildies, plus my own alt army and hubby, I had her decently geared immediately. Healed my first heroic – Heroic Utgarde Pinnacle, with a tank who’s usually dps [but has a great tank set and IS an awesome tank]. One of our best healers went boom and helped me out on the gauntlet. And we had a new 80 mage and a warlock alt who’s geared above 1900 gear score [warcrafter rating].
Now, UP is an instance that can be wrought with peril. I should know. I’ve tanked and dpsed it successfully [and unsuccessfully] many many times. The healer is OFTEN the problem. And with the exception of the gauntlet and a spare heal once or twice, I had no help. I was sure our druid was throwing heals left and right. And I stayed above half mana the whole instance – chain pulling the whole way. I was in shock! I epicly failed druid healing back in Burning Crusade, so I wasn’t expecting to do well, but I read a bit on disc priests [though not as much as I should have].
Now they’re taking me into H-ToC… well it was supposed to be Regular ToC, but they switched it up on me last second. One wipe, almost a couple more… but we made it!
