Of HoT Idols and Mauling Face

Patch 3.2 brought about all kinds of change! While at first I was extremely hesitant about Emblem of Conquest changes, it wasn't until I decided to build up a feral DPS set that I realized how awesome this change was. Doing heroics is a great chance to spend some time with guildies while stocking up on extra badges for those off specs that you've been neglecting. Picking up a DPS set has been great, as it makes doing dailies easier, finding a spot in heroic groups easier, and also makes me a more flexible and valuable raider. Need a healer? No problem. Need a mangle bot? No problem! It's also been great for a change of pace; even I get tired of healing (gasp!).

Speaking of being HoT...
Idol of Flaring Growth

If you hadn't seen this Restoration Druid idol yet, you'd best put a bib of some sort on or at least put a bucket beneath your mouth because this idol will make you drool. It's essentially a constant free 234 spell power. According to players on, the idol has no internal cooldown and even procs several times in a row. With Rejuvenation now our main spell for raid healing (especially with the Tier 8.5 4-piece set bonus), more and more set bonuses/idols are giving it even more benefits!

I only have about 15 Badges of Triumph at the moment (I keep forgetting to turn my daily in, 'doh!), but once I get it I'm going to be even more Rejuvenation happy than I am now. Healing has never been so HoT!

Onyxia to Return and Deep Breath Your Face Off in 3.2.2!?

She has lurked in her lair and done battle with the many brave adventurers who travelled to that familiar location over the years. Now, in honor of the World of Warcraft 5-year anniversary, the dreaded brood mother Onyxia is being revamped to make a return to the forefront of Azeroth, as part of our big plans for the upcoming 3.2.2 content patch.

This permanent update to Onyxia will convert the dungeon into 10- and 25-player modes. We will be adding new items to Onyxia’s loot table that have the same model as some of the classic loot from this dungeon, like Tier 2 helms, with stats updated to match the current level of content. There will be a special new item too: a normal drake-sized 310% speed flying mount modeled after Onyxia herself called an Onyxia Broodling. We will also be updating the encounter mechanics to be more fitting for modern raiding, but we can guarantee players will get to experience the frightening horror of deep breaths once again.

Then for a limited time, after the 5-year anniversary event officially begins in November, anybody who logs in will receive an Onyxia Brood Whelpling pet.

We’re very excited to bring this classic encounter back to provide a fun new experience for both new and veteran players. Further details will be available in the near future, and we will be setting up the Public Test Realms soon to help test out this fight along with all the new content we have planned for the patch. Keep an eye on the forums for updates!
Yes, the big bitch is coming back to take away 50 DKP from all of us! Get ready to get your cute little Onyxia baby pet (similar to the Baby Blizzard bear during last year's anniversary) and get ready to run the instance every week for that sexy, SEXY mount!

It's probably a good idea to get any old school loot that you want off of her now before they possibly remove it from the game!

Still sick, but still kickin' butt

My cold decided to stick around, but that isn't keeping me from getting some sweet achievements and gear!

Last night we got "I Love the Smell of Saronite in the Morning (25 player)" now that he doesn't projectile vomit Shadow Crashes rapid fire at the raid. Despite the Omen of Clarity nerf (Blizzard hates melee trees!), this fight was still rather easy to heal. While standing in the Shadow Crash pools reduces your healing done, it makes it easier to spam Lifebloom and Wild Growth on members of your group who take a bit of damage from Mark of the Faceless.

I was excited to maul face on Iron Council Hardmode "I Choose You, Steelbreaker (25 player)". The guild has been wiping on this fight for a little while, but we finally got him last night! It seems that we ALWAYS wiped with just a few hit points left (> 3-5%). It was aggrivating, and I wasn't there for all the weeks of wipes prior to this down, but he's finally down! Time to head over to Freya...

Active again.. but sick ~

Sick druid is sick :(

I've finally gotten back into WoW 100%, and I've actually been mainly running around as a fluffy kitty! My feral set is actually rather nice; I have almost full BiS as far as Naxx25/Conquest Emblem Gear is concerned, and I tend to top the DPS charts most of the time (that means I'm good, RITE?!). I'm really enjoying doing some damage for once. After almost 4 years as a healer in WoW, it was really nice to change things up a little and maul some faces =)

Much like
Keeva, I've been running around doing the daily quests associated with the adorable little Venomhide Hatchling. I can't wait to get my mount in 18 more days!

Aside from farming to get the mount, I also sat in Dustwallow marsh for ~5 hours to get this little guy:

He has an *adorable* animation where he dashes away, leaving a cloud of dust behind him (very similar to Egbert). I had to work today, but hopefully during my off-days this week I can snag a few more of these adorable little guys!

I need to go get in bed for now and rest up ~ I've had a lot of stomach problems lately so I got on a healthy eating kick. Eating plenty of fruits and veggies, fiber, etc... I quit soda! (GASP) But the thing is that just a few days after I started this routine... I got a cold! I woke up this morning with a snore throat and the sniffles! It's horrible =( It actually happens every time I get into a healthy routine. I think I'm so used to eating junk food and drinking can after can of soda that my body is going crazy!

Hopefully this all passes soon! I hate being sick >_<

But I'll leave you all with a silly picture:

Levitate + Stealth = Lulz
