Last night after my attempted wow-fixes I logged in and managed to stay connected for about 2 hours without a DC before logging for the night. I ran a random heroic on Avvy (during which I discovered I have a bug wherein I can’t add players to my ignore list, which apparently Blizzard is “aware of” but has no fix for at this time… augh, how shall I shield myself from the ninjas and asshats of the Whirlwind battlegroup now!?) and, after a few quests in Sholazar, dinged 80 on my paladin (woohoo! another toon ready to be mocked/kicked in heroics) – so it looks like my DC problem may be fixed! I would still like to see if it happens during a raid, where it’s the most frequent/tourette’s-inducing… but I’m cautiously optimistic.
Before bed I logged on my wee shammy with determination to at least get her to 40 at some point so she has a fancy fast-moving elephant to ride around on. I respcced her Elemental (Enhance and I had a bad relationship, I realize this is likely because I didn’t quite hit the point of being able to talent into dual-wielding, but I was just OVER it) and sent her some heirloom gear, hoping to be able to both dps and possibly off-heal my way through lowbie instances, which is highly preferable to questing through Tanaris/Feralas/STV/Badlands/etc for the 8th time. So now she looks slightly ridiculous in her T2-knockoff heirloom shoulders…
Is it just me though or does it feel like you need like 20 action bars to play a shammy? I already have a metric crap ton of totems and my little toon is only 38… her bars are already crammed full of all the spells and tricks that shammies get. (My rogue on the other hand has room for music macros, vanity pets, etc etc) I don’t know how I’m gonna fit more crap on there. (I suppose reading up on what’s needed for the spec might be helpful…)
Guess I’ll go back to working now and maybe read up a bit on protadin-ing for my fresh 80 pally if I get some time… not that I WANT to be That Tank with 26k health, but we all gotta start somewhere!
(BTW, in reference to the title of this post, this mod is awesome if you like Final Fantasy victory music to play when you down a boss, or fail music to play when you don’t :3)
Edit 4 hours later: I’ve barely made a dent in this post on protadins over at EJ, and my eyes are already glazing over… there is a crap ton of stuff to think about as a tank x_X Is it really that complicated? Can’t I just throw on some defense/stam gear and have a go at it?
