Mr B’s Problem Monk

OMG got my Monk to 90 in just over 3 days. At first, I was going to stay as DPS, but after running a few dungeons I found it massively boring so I decided to switch it to healer. That was just as bad! I’ve played as healer as my main character in nearly every expansion since my BElf paladin in TBC. With monk, there just seemed so much to do at the same time trying to jab the boss whilst healing everybody. There is also so many different spells to use to heal. I tried downloading healbot to help me use the spells, but trying to remember all the different mouse and modifier keys to use I ended up just getting confused. Having a low Ilvl didn’t help either…

After I decieded to not play the monk, I transfered my warlock across to do some raiding. I spent the few hours wiping on the first boss in Heart of Fear (I was the first to die with attenuation each and every time). They even ressed me after that phase once; only for me to die to the first one in phase 4 (idiot I know). After I asked them to replace me, I had a sulk about how awful I was at raiding. Also with the lock I was watching my dots so closely to keep my DPS up I wasnt focusing on what was happening around me.

S,o I realised I needed to play a healer I knew to have some fun. I was playing my priest a lot, but I didn’t really want to transfer it across to our new server. So, I have decided to level a new Resto Druid which was my main back in WOTLK. Again, I do still have that character on another server, but its Horde and again, dont wanna pay for a transfer. So I’m just going to level through dungeons whilst gathering herbs and skinning mobs as I wait to make some money while I level.

Wish me luck!

20 Days of Wow – Day 1

I have seen this on a few other blogs, so I thought we would join in the craze. I’m not disciplined to do it every day, but I thought it could be a fun regular feature.

So, let’s go.

Day 01 – Introduce yourself

I’m Mrs B. 25 years old and I live with Mr B in the UK. Not our location of choice, but we had to move to the big city for work from our lovely home town in the country. Not bitter at all 😉 If I say much more about me, I will have nothing to talk about in a later post, so… that’s it for now!

I am new to World of Warcraft – I started playing after a couple of years getting really annoyed with Mr B as I couldn’t understand what he was talking about. Initially, he set me up with a character on a high populated server (Defias Brotherhood) so I could get a feel for the game. He told me to pick anything I liked – I chose Alliance (because the Horde were ugly); Gnome (because they’re small and cute); and Mage… well, because they’re cool. This is the only reason I ended up with this combination, as much as I’d like to say it was because of the Gnome racial buff. He helped me level through – talking me through the basics, helping me through the first few dunegons etc but generally just let me get on with it.

After levelling my Mage, I decided I want to heal. I love healing, but I don’t particularly like to quest so I levelled the Shaman through dungeons. I heal for the guild when we raid but that’s all. I decided I also wanted to have a high level hunter (for the pets, of course!) so I power levelled that and LOVED it. Unfortunately, I neither have the time nor the inclination to do dailies for gear on all 3 characters, so gearing up may take a while.

I’m Mr B, 28 years young and I’ve been playing WoW since Vanilla, on and off. I usually play 2 or 3 main characters: Sinnius (Worgen Priest), Sinate (Human DK) and Chaosin (Human Warlock). I have dabbled in all characters, classes and factions over the years but I think I’d have to pick Priest as my favourite. It’s hard to say exactly why but I like to heal, and I like to cast. I have had rogues and other melée characters, but utimately, I always find myself drifting back towards the casting classes.

Out of Horde and Alliance, I definitely prefer the Alli storyline, although there is some nostalgia for Horde as I started there all those years ago. I enjoy playing my Undead Mage a lot, but don’t dedicate that much time to it now, as I’m playing Alliance so much.
