Obligatory Introduction

June 3, 2009

WordPress is wonderful; it allows me to manage multiple blogs under one login. As such, I have given in to one of my little internal monsters and decided to start a blog  about my WoW experiences, specifically my experiences with my discipline priest. I decided to do this last night while I was browsing through a myriad collection of blogs by other priests. (In a few minutes I will shamelessly plug the links for said inspirations in a nice link category. Gogo!)

I started my priest in the autumn of 2008. From the very beginning, Lu– my priest, was a discipline priest- not shadow, not holy. Well, OK, I picked up holy with my dual spec when dual spec first released, but as of today, I ditched my holy pve spec in lieu of a pve disc spec. Now I’m disc all the way, babe! I love discipline. I’m comfortable with it in a way I’ve never been with any other class or spec. When Lu hit twenty, I didn’t decline duels like I did with my other toons; I welcomed them. I relished them.

But as I near 80, discipline looks daunting. It’s difficult to find information. There is so much information, but rarely ever is the information I find in a language I can understand such as: layman, neophyte, nub, or n00b. I’m not stupid; I’m inexperienced.

And I don’t belong to a guild! My friends and fellow guild members have pretty much disappeared from the server. The GMs of my beloved little guild quit the game after our first and last Ulduar raid the week it released. Now my 10-man geared warlock does dailies and mines for my priest; her gear went from hot to not. I have no class leaders, no one to respect and follow, and no one to trust me to heal them. (I have one person for whom I play heal-heel or heal-bitch or whatever you call it, but he only PVPs.)

How can I possibly get raid invites when most of the realm population believe discipline priests to be inefficient in PVE? I don’t know, but I imagine I’ll be writing about that soon enough. Until then…

  1. I prefer a Disc Priest over a almost everything but a Resto Druid.
