Last night, logged in on Windshadow, sicker than hell, thought I’d hang out for a few before an early bedtime.
Of course, the best laid plans, etc, etc.
Soel of Redrum whispered me asking if i could come heal some 10 man Ulduar for a bit.
I plaintively asked for how long?
“Oh, about 3 – 3.5 hours.”
“Well, how long COULD you come?”
About an hour and a half, tops.
[Insert Jeopardy music while I pray “please say no please say no please say no”]
“Okay, that sounds good. Invite incoming.”
Crap. Now I have to make the little brain cell that’s still alive work.
About two minutes later, Cassie comes downstairs.
I’m about to heals in Ulduar.
“Do they know you’ve never healed in Ulduar before?”
They didn’t ask.
“Where are you starting?”
“Do they know you’ve never seen these bosses before?”
They didn’t ask.
“Aren’t you deathly sick?”
Your point is?
We teleport straight to the Antechamber, and begin pulling trash. Redrum has done this way too many times before, there’s not much work for a healer on the trash.
As I heal, I’m happy with my new Idol, Idol of Flaring Growth. Sucker is up ALL the time.
Rejuve, pop. Regrowth, pop. Lifebloom, pop. Wild Growth button… Wild Growth button…
Why the hell ain’t there a Wild Growth pop? There’s supposed to be an earth shattering Wild Growth pop!
Son of a bitch, I bet VuhDo’s last update wiped my custom settings!
We clear trash and at a break, I ask for a minute to resolve some, ahem, “Technical difficulties.”
I open VuhDo’s panel, and check out Control, and then look at Right Click. There it is, Wild Growth.
Hmm, how come the other spell names have the word “Spell” next to them on the panel, but Wild Growth doesn’t?
I flip open my Talent panel.
I scroll to the bottom… something I apparently did NOT do when I did my respec testing last week.
Why look, there’s the Wild Growth icon… all greyed out.
Son of a bitch.
You know, the last time I respecced, I boasted to Cassie that I was able to buy every Talent I wanted, I had magically found the pefect spec. Not a single thing shorted a point like usual.
Hmm, I wonder how I ended up with that extra point.
Gee, I wonder.
I then proceded to have to heal Kologarn with no Wild Growth. It was like someone had chopped off my right arm… and then my left arm… and then my right arm…
Look, here’s a screenshot of a moron facing Kologarn! See if you can pick out the Druid without Wild Growth! Woot!
I proceded to heal Kologarn and Auriaya before we took a break long enough for me to teleport to Moonglade and do a hasty respec. Then it was back in to down Ignis the Furnace Master, and then it was past time for me to go to sleep.
But at least I got to heal Ignis with my damn Wild Growth! Things really heated up once I had that spell on hand.
Damnit, I did that once on my Hunter, too. Respecced Beastmaster moving things around, and said to myself, “Wow, I managed to fit everything I wanted in. I found the perfect spec.”
“Hey, how come I can’t summon my spirit beast.”
