A Lesson in Utility

June 12, 2009

So I went out of town for a few days, and it completely threw off my schedule, including my intent to blog. I did, however, play and play a lot since I’ve returned. In fact, Monday night I ran regular Violet Hold- a first as discipline. (I think I mentioned before that my PVE spec since dual-spec release was holy.)

And I was bad.

Ok, so no one died! But I used Renew. I used Renew a lot. I was a naughty, Renewing discipline priest. Still, I never ran OOM during the entire instance. But…

Ok, so the group almost died once, but then I pulled the shiny Prayer of Mending out just at the last second, and VOILA! We downed Xevozz, and I mentally and silently groveled at the feet of my fellow party members. Maybe the level 80 shadow priest and the other level 78s had something to do with it, but at level 76 I learned right then, Prayer of Mending is my new best friend. And bubbles, of course! Bubbles for everyone, but I would never leave off the bubbles. Cuz I’m a bubble addict, didn’t ya notice?

Anyway, now I’m using Prayer of Mending every time it’s off cooldown in PVE. So that’s it for my valuable lesson this week and tonight’s post.

P.S.: As a testament to playing so much since my return, Lucasta is level 78 now, and she has her epic mount and cold weather flying, and that is so partly because of a very generous and totally awesome Sunstrike.
