But what I really want to talk about, is alts. Yeah, I realize most guilds are still gearing up, perhaps not even through the whole raid content at this time. The top raid guilds however are allready deep into their alt-naxx. For us its the second week, and were looking to team up with OoR to fill the last spots incase people are unable to make the raid. Itll be my first week back raiding properly on my old old TBC main, a healing priest called Mchester. Since our GL went for Holy on his priest, Ive opted for Disc on mine. Its a bit of an shocker as I find myself doing quite the opposite to what conventional wisdom was. Im spamming flash much of the time, where as I barely had it bound in TBC. GHeal, the former backbone of my healing arsenal, is now my secondary single target bind. Im throwing around shields much more than I used to, and Ive got a few new tools(penance and pain suppression mainly) which Im still adapting to. PoM and Binding Heal are still important niché abilities.
Whats more important is Im getting a better view of healing in WotLK than what I was able to get as a tank. Being myself now a tank healer, I hope to be able to better gauge what I would like to see in a tank, and perhaps improve my own tanking further. Ill keep you posted on what I find.
