Since I can’t read a lot of places I was on before this wall thingy at my work… now I use this time reading more blogs. I was doing it before also, but not that much.
Now… there are some very good posts out there and I did read them some time ago, but last night been noticing (even in my guild) that people still don’t know what loot is out there…
Everyone should do a wish list with the gear they aim for. As usual the loot table is available on mmo-champions (can’t give link…qq!) and most of the sites like wowhead.com, official sites, and so on. Bloggers also have been busy and made some lists:
Discipline Gear in 3.3 – Penance priest
Patch 3.3 Healing Gears Part 1 (+2 and 3) from Christine’s Blog
After you made you’re list, decide what you will go first, taking in considerations how DKP is handled in your guild and rolls and/or biding. Derevka got a nice “guest post” from Matticus: Get your hands off my gear, you Damn Dirty Healer!
The post is really interesting and I am sure more of you got this problem… and can take some good tips from there. I know at least I did even they were obvious and somehow I did knew them, but, is a bit different when some one put it on paper.
Take the facts: in my guild, I bid on cloth with mages, locks, shadow priests and sometimes druids. On anything else I bid with… anything that is not warrior, rogue, hunter and dk. So y… /sad face. I am not that much into this gear up thingy, but…
It does hurt when I see some one paying on some chest (for example) 3 dkp when I pay 70 dkp for same slot item… or, better, I lose the bidding to a dps class.
All in all, what I am saying is that read that post and set up your priorities!
Update from badges/loot that is not paid with dkp (like 10 man normal and heroic instances in my guild) the slots you can, and keep the dkp for weapon, ring, neck, trinkets, back or/and anything that you consider is the best in slot for you or you can’t live without it.
I am happy here because I own a double Solace (/yey, cheer!… wohooo) and this will take me a long way because the current trinkets added in 3.3 are not very shiny from my point of view.
2 days ago I got the crafted boots so that’s again a thing I don’t need to worry about and I have 79 badges waiting for this reset to buy fast, probably, a new chest.
Now, that you’re priorities considering gear are sorted get a good reading on the theory for healing in 3.3. For that here’s a free ticket: P to BobTurkey’s blog. Priest Theorycrafting for 3.3 – Introduction (Part 1) (there are 5 parts)
So, gear? Checked, theory? Checked … tactics? They are everywhere so don’t be sloppy! UI? Bati’s UI v3.4 is up and I love it.
Here are a few screen shots and… sorry I can’t give a link, but y… QQ time…
I will update the page from blog with Bati’s UI soon I have the time and… I will have access to the pages I need, like wowinterface.
This post started with another idea… Should the girlfriend play WoW? (free time with restrictions on what sites I can visit dragged me on this post)
But you will see my answer on it next time since now I kinda need to get back to work.
