respecing resto

I finally couldn't stand the self-imposed guilt this past weekend and respeced to resto. Nobody in the guild actually asked me to (or even implied that I should), but how long can I keep ignoring the pleas for healers? I'm viewing this as a fun experiment. Maybe I'll hate it. Maybe I'll stink. And maybe I'll be really helpful and useful for raids. We'll see.

Boy oh boy do I need some new gear, though. I've been sort of collecting healing gear and have some okay greens, but that's about it. I've got a decent healy mace ([The Essence Focuser]) and offhand ([Archmage Orb of the Invoker]), and some of my gear has +healing, but... Time for new gear. Gathering the Moonglade Raiment will give me good practice in learning just how to heal, too.

Plus, respecing to resto lets me use my new battlecry, stolen from the druid forums on Blog Azeroth, "Tree is 4 FITE!"

A few tips:

1: Netherwing Spiritualist's Charm. If you're not already done the chain to get Neutral rep with Netherwing, this is an excellent off-hand to pair with the Essence Focuser (I should know, it's what I have).

2: Moonglade Shoulders FTW. They're amazing healing shoulders, obtainable from Steamvaults on normal (last boss drops 'em).

I dunno if you have access to Karazhan or not. If you do, there's some amazing gear in there. If you don't, well, we're on the same realm- whisper Llanion and I'd be happy to help you out!

Oooh, that is a nice off-hand. I haven't started the Netherwing quests yet, but that looks like a good reason to!

I've got my Kara key but am anxious about trying to heal there with no practice. I haven't been resto since...gosh. Blackfathom Deeps, I guess. I had a couple of bad PUGs there and was like, "Screw this noise. I can come back to resto later."

I also want to briefly apologize for being antisocial. I saw your post on Blog Azeroth and meant to reply but then was a tool this weekend. Look forward to seeing you around Arathor!

AARGH! Another one bites the dust.

I'm actually considering a switch to resto currently. I'm nearly complete in my efforts for Balance gear pre-25, and my raid team is switching it up. So I'll be USING the healer purps I've got in my bank.

Good luck! And remember to visit Phaelia's!
