It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

I won’t survive…
comment 7 Written by on March 8, 2008 – 12:30 pm

(To the tune of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”)

At first I was dazed,
Then I was Mortal Striked,
Kept thinking I would always live
If I could duck and hide
But they’ve made so many mods
For Arathi and Warsong
They grew strong
I was their target all along

And so they’re back
They start to chase
I try to run but they break fear
Before I even melt a face
I should have played a stupid ‘lock
I should have stuck to PvE
If I had known it takes two seconds
To kill a Priest in PvP

You say “Now go,
Go cry some more”
I’ll just respec now
I won’t be healing anymore
Weren’t you the one who said
Priests were in short supply
You think I’m humble
You think I’ll do more than die?

Oh no, not I
I won’t survive
As long as they can break my fear
I know I won’t stay alive
I don’t have snares, or stuns or root
So I might as well drop loot
I can’t survive
I won’t survive

I used all the spells I had
But they still kicked my ass
I find it hard to believe
That we’re a “broken” class
And they’ve made oh so many mods
To keep a target on myself
I used to die
Now I reroll instead of cry

And you see me
Somebody new
I’m not that stupid Holy Priest that should be healing you
And so you felt like queueing up
And you spam raid chat with “heal plz”
But I’d rather do my healing
As a Shaman or Pally

You say “Now go, go cry some more”
I’ll just reroll now
You won’t get healing anymore
Weren’t you the one who said
Priests were in short supply
You think I’m humble
You think I’ll do more than die?

Oh no, not I
I won’t survive
As long as they use Mortal Strike
I know I won’t stay alive
I can’t wear shields or mail
And my Power Words won’t scale
I won’t survive

Oh no, not I
I won’t survive
As long as they can stunlock me
I know I won’t stay alive
I’ve got no shapeshifts and no plate
But long GHeals, Can’t you wait
I can’t survive
I won’t survive

(And no, I didn’t write this, but I fail at crediting the person who did – I found this a few years ago on the warcraft forums, and didn’t write down the author. Can you tell I’ve been PVPing? Also props to Big Bear Butt for his Wreath of Fire and for Bellweather’s Feralicious spoofs, which gave me many laughs and inspired me to go digging for this song.)

A Good Day For Trees?

So… while not truly woot-worthy yet (it is still the PTR), it seems that not only has the lifetap change been rescinded… so has the lifebloom change.  Check out Phae over at Resto4Life for much better details than I can give.

Though I am not a tree… I must say that this is very happy news!  As a resto shaman, I love raiding with a tree – they’re a fabulous healing complement to my own healing style, and together make quite a capable pair of healers.  <3 to trees!

Don’t Stand in the Fire

  The more TRI explores Tempest Keep the more I like the instance. Granted, it’s been a bit gimmicky as a resto shaman – my entire strategy in there is (quite literally) “don’t stand in fire, spam chain heal”. In a lot of cases, it doesn’t even really matter what I spam chain heal at. Just spamspamspam, because there’s so much random raid damage.

Then last night we fought Al’ar for the first time.

I think my opinion of Phase1 Al’ar is going to be similar to my opinion of Leotheras, except that Al’ar is a lot prettier. Which is to say, I am a useless waste of space.

Fortunately, once phase 2 started up, things picked up a bit. We had some issues with the adds (just figuring out how/where to tank them), but I fully expect to see him toasted next week. We figured out the “don’t stand in the fire” bit for Solarian, and last night the problems were really add-based and not positioning based in phase 1, so I think we’ll have a hang of “don’t stand in fire” for next week.  Personally, I’d like to head back in and see if we can’t take him tonight, but the higherups have decided that there’s  a water elemental, a fish thing, a demon possessed angry-elf, a giant farting dwarf, and a pack of Naga that need to die in SSC tonight (with possibly a few attempts on Lady Snakehair Herself).

Things You Should Know About Shaman

Time for another Blog Azeroth Community Post! This time – What are the things that you wish everyone you grouped with knew about your class?

As one of the few Alliance Shaman (it seems), I have rather a few…

An old story, reposted here as I’m shaking the mothballs off Ankona and needed an easy way to show people a little bit about the (batshit) things she gets up to. Enjoy, and don’t be too creeped out!

Very First Impressions

November 14, 2014 – 7:32 am

So I haven’t finished the intro quests yet (the server queues from the reduced server capacity due to the DDOS attacks meant I only got about an hour to play yesterday), but I’m finding that Draenor is pretty cool so …

A Girl and her Dog

The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger …

Counting down to Warlords

November 11, 2014 – 3:09 pm

What a long strange trip it’s been. I’ll be the first to admit that, at the beginning, I wasn’t sure Pandaria was going to be for me. I’ve made clear my dislike of daily quests, and that seemed to be …

Elevation

Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants.

Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of …

Introducing the Newest Anna

So I’m not really in a position where I should be creating alts. This, of course, does nothing to deter me from making alts when the inspiration strikes. I’ve been really enjoying my Alliance hunter, and she’s my raiding main …

Deconstruction

Bad things are happening in Stormwind – and beyond.

The Hand of Lothar, they call themselves.

Yva Darrows was their first target.

Tirith and Aely were their second and third.

They have since… expanded their reach and escalated their methods …
