We’ve gotten the final boss in ToC done in 10-man a few times now. Both on our normal run and on our alt run. However, we still haven’t downed him in our 25. Timers/Lack of DPS seem to be causing us additional pain. I’m sure a few more weeks of tries and we’ll get it down, but our raid schedule has definitely been nerfed. We raid less days a week and we have no ULD run (although I think we are going to start doing a 25 again soon). I’d like to try to take my Mage and/or Priest in somewhere to get them geared up, but I’ve just been lazy.
Well, that and also playing Champions Online. I’ve gotten my “tanky” Might based hero up to level 21 and have been having a lot of fun. The world doesn’t seem to be as HUGE as WoW was when it was first released (only 3 zones that I know of right now). I still haven’t participated in whatever the “Nemesis” stuff is and haven’t grouped up much to do anything (I’ve been painfully soloing the 2/3 person quests).. But, I have to say I have been having fun! Do I think this would replace WoW as my “primary” game? No. Not by a long shot. But it is a nice diversion when I feel I need time away. Oh, and went back last night and played an entire game of Civ Revolution on my PS3 and got a Domination Victory.. Woot!
Oh. And I’ve been working hard on a super super secret new project that is really exciting! Hopefully more information soon!
So the last couple of Raids on Fyra, I’ve been healing. I’ve been healing as my dual-spec resto… I’ve been healing in my DPS gear. Yeah. No Tier X healing gear (although I have some).. I get better +healing/+mp5/+everythingelse in my MUCH higher level DPS gear. So, I keep it on. I have healed ToC10 like this and I keep up pretty well (considering I barely know what I am doing anyway). I healed VoA25 and a bunch of heroic instances too. I guess the changes they made to homogenize the gear are doing a pretty good job. .Obviously the Tier set bonuses are not particularly useful for healing, but the stats make up for that compared to my lower level healing gear. I swap out a few trinkets and obviously the idol, but otherwise it’s mostly the same.
I did pick up a nice staff in ToC10 the other night. I don’t remember what it is called, but its one with no Spirit and no Hit. I have one right now with an amazing amount of hit.. I might just use the new one as a healing staff.. I suppose we’ll just have to see how it goes..
Long weekend coming for me, so you might not hear anything until Tuesday. We haven’t given Heroic ToC (ToGC) another go yet. We just aren’t ready I think. Need some more runs of ToC10/25 to gear up.
||So, I did a little exploration last night.. But not in WoW. I picked up Champions Online on Steam and tried it out after raid time last night. I had played a few minutes in the open beta earlier, but this time I took my time creating my Gadgeteering type Superhero, Fizzic. I have only played until level 3 in the tutorial zone so far because it was really late. I had to drag myself away from the game though, so that is something.. :)
Anyway. I’m enjoying it so far. If you’ve tried it, what are your impressions?
