@Navimie SAY HI TO ME NEXT TIME! Charge up to me, and just try to catch my eye or something. Feel free to stop me and say hello ANYTIME!

@Binx It might be. Lots of the pieces are neutral minions. The only things Paladin specific are COnsecrateion, Hammer of Wrath, and the Aldor Peacekeeper. It might be able to fit in with other classes, but it needs an AoE removal, a direct damage, and something that can also help mitigate other minions. Might work with Priests? Need to play with it some.

@Noloktarogar Hi there, I fixed the part about Divine Insight. This guide was written before many of the glyph changes.
Your party is in all fairness going to drop fairly low and often throughout some of the fights especially as you're learning. But there are times where there's cut scenes or Role play periods where you have time to actually chug a potion.
Good point about the shield. Even though I miss the old version, I'd still recommend this one anyway as it combines a small heal and an absorb into one. It'll buy you some time to queue into others. Binding Heal isn't a bad alternative. However, I haven't done any of the challenge modes with the Binding Heal glyph and cant' say for sure how effective it's going to be (especially with the slightly higher mana cost with it).
Go ahead and give challenge modes a try! I'd love to hear your experiences with some of the new post 5.3 glyphs and changes!
3 months, 2 weeks ago on What Priests Bring to Challenge Modes
@Daisy I like the easy mode leveling. But that's probably because I'm more into end game then levelling. I hated leveling new characters. I just wanted to get to the end and do all this other stuff with other people. If I wanted to play a solo leveling game, I'd switch to Dragon Age or Mass Effect. Agree with the dungeons, but then I earned my golds in Challenge Mode. The heroic raids are still pretty damn hard right now.
I never quite agree with people who say raids are easy. The heroic raids right now in 5.2 are some of the hardest ever designed in the history of the game. Heroic Primordius and Dark Animus are just ballbusting. I don't even want to look at heroic Lei Shen yet. There are multiple raid difficulties available for everyone of all skill levels. If one's too easy, go up one. Too hard? Go down one. I feel that I'm at the right place in terms of challenge offered.

@Daisy I like killing bosses. This dates back to any game/RPG with a boss (Final Fantasy series, Breath of Fire). I also like team work or coop based games (Counterstrike, Left 4 Dead, League of legends). WoW is an interesting mix between both concepts and it'll continue to draw me back. I am lucky to have a side job where I can actually write about the game and make a little part time income from it. The game offers so many different things to do mainly the raiding aspect, the pet battles aspect, and the PvP portions (again, teamplay with other guildies).
The problem isn't the fact that I'm getting bored with the game. The problem is that OTHER people are getting bored with the game and I have to expend the effort to continually recruit the players who share my same mindset and enthusiasm and that pool is dwindling, yes.
@Daisy 1) Trolling. 2) Violates my comment policy. I'll let this one slide though. But nice try in attempting to shake me loose. I'm cool with who I am and so are the friends I do have (both virtual and in the real world). ^^
@Viktory I'm just tired of it. Having to constantly retrain and reskill newer players coming in and watching older players walk. That window is always closing.
@compactdiscpriest Without any other details, it's going to be a little hard for me to diagnose it. If you can get away with using a cheap spell, do it. Don't need to use Flash Heal when a simple Heal will do the trick. Use your mana hymn early around Wave 3-4. It should be up around wave 9-10. Use your Barrier when both of the big guys are up. Since you're hitting OOM at wave 10, your goal should be to streamline waves 1-9 and figure out where you can save mana. Use Psychic Scream and your AoE Roots to slow down and stall melee minions at max range before they can close in and start DPSing your group. Good luck!

@Kauket Yeah, indeed. It's getting progressively worse, I think. It's so cyclical. Thankfully, I've managed to add some time to the clock with some recent pickups. The one shot of Lei Shen did wonders as well.

@Cassio I don't wanna say HEADS and shoulders above everyone ;). But yeah, you were good. ^^
@PeterAnargirou It's hard to not be in my guild and not know about this blog. But I've had frank discussions with them about where we are and the reality of the current situation. All I can ask is more time. It's up to them to give it to me.
@BloodyGneisha Never said it to me :(.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on 21 Things You Don’t Hear in Raid Finder
@PeterAnargirou Yes, and that's certainly true for this current tier and stage of the game. But once Flex runs out, how long do you think you'll be running LFR for? Or even normal raids for that matter? It seems like a Flex raid is a good intermediary between both difficulties. You might be able to get away with two out of three raid difficulties. If you can routinely get far in Flex, you'll get to a point where you might not need to do LFR anymore (combined with whatever drops you gain from normal).

@Denny U Gomez Never thought about it being used as a way to introduce players into raids gradually before. Good point.

@Jasyla Nope. We usually wait a second or two before they pounce in anyway. With only one DK, I don't know how often we could pull it off.

@TedtheThird @mattuzzi OH, that guy. Yeah, I saw that too. I think we actually had two sets of the big Troll? I just said screw it and called for Heroism to kill it asap.

@TedtheThird Which trash packs?
@6BigZ6 Oh absolutely. There's some fantastic coaches who've been able to get more out of their team. I'd have to do some research to look some of them up some more. Vince Lombardi. Phil Jackson. Scotty Bowman.
