Rez Incoming

Well, it’s been awhile hasn’t it? Surprisingly I’m still getting views, mostly for a Healing Enchants post I wrote during BC which is outdated now. I thought I’d drop in and do a little update. Maybe I can get back to regular posting, but there are no guarantees.

Since Wrath hit I’ve been tanking, but over the weekend I decided to go back to resto. After healing a few heroics and Vault, I have to say that resto is where Gillir belongs. I enjoy healing with him much more than tanking. Not to say that I wasn’t a competent tank: I was able to tank our guild’s first CoS timed run and I was the hateful strike tank on Patch. I pulled together some good gear and kept the bad guys on me (most of the time). But, as the saying goes, the heart wants what the hearts wants, so resto it is. Thankfully, my guild is very understanding and we really stick to our credo of doing what you find fun instead of dictating specs and roles.

I went with this build: 14/0/57. After pulling together rep gear, LW gear, and pieces I had picked up in runs, I was able to get a little over 1600 healing in tree form. And returning to healing was easy play-wise: the muscle memory is still there, although there are some slight changes to rotation: threading in Wild Growth, using Regrowth a little more to proc Nature’s Grace and Living Seed, and wondering if I should be using Nourish more than I do. The only issue I’m concerned about is my mana regen (as well as overhealing which doesn’t help in the mana department).

So, it’s good to be back to resto and good to be back on the blog. The former will certainly continue; we’ll have to see about the latter.
