So Firelands is a bit better now. A bit. It’s in the middle of summer and several people are away, so we have done 2 x 10 rather than one 25man raid. So far we have killed Shannox and done some nice progress on the spider boss. I came home not too long ago and had a hard time aiming key at the keyhole, still fairly drunk if I must admit, so I don’t think I’m going to try to write the name right now. Betty? Oh well, I’ll have plenty of time to think about that with tomorrow’s incoming headache.

I guess I could say something about healing on Shannox. But that doesn’t sound like me. I stood still for the most of the time, shaked my tail looking sexy as hell. If you want to read about tactics and such, Alacran over @ Stand in the Blue Circle is a lot better on that. To me, the fight looked something like this:

I still haven’t found out how I should arrange my haste vs crit vs mastery in 4.2, it doesn’t help that we keep swapping between 10 and 25 mans either, since healing assignments usually look different for these 2 setups. But healing in 4.2 is so far fun. Of course it is, shaman healing is always fun! However, I have realised that it could be a lot better, and I have only myself to blame. When I was a newly born healer many years ago, I was told that healbot was my best option. Perhaps it is. But if I knew a bit more back then, I’d consider my other options and get more used to keybinding. The way it is now, I am very depending on my mouse, since most of my heals are bound to it (razer naga with 12 side buttons).

On a fight like Shannox it’s no problem, but with fights with constant moving I sometimes have a hard time moving fast enough while using spells at the same time. This is even more a problem for me in pvp. Using WASD keys for turning, hmm not so pro. And when I move with mouse, there are certain combinations I can’t use the way I am using healbot at the moment. So. I have bought a shiny. It’s a g13 mini keyboard, with 22 keys for binds, and a little joystick for moving. Haven’t tried it yet, but will do very soon, hoping for nice results.

It’s light outside, birds are up and while neighbours and other mortals are ready to get up, walk their dogs and have breakfast, I will crawl into bed. Toodles!

 


 Chez Moi

Day 6-Your desk. Picture and / or description.

My desk is not really a desk. I have a real desk upstairs, but there’s no window there, light is bad and internet connection comes and goes. So I have my little entertainment station in corner of my livingroom, using a table as desk. Most of the colours in my appartement are, just like the clothes in my wardrobe, a mix of white, grey and black.

I don’t have an office chair, but I do have the softest sheepskin in the world, not to mention furry, fluffy pillows.  I also like to keep fresh flowers on desk, smells good and look pretty. I try to keep as little as possible on the desk as too many things lying around give visual noise to me. The wow authenticator is allowed, though.

When I play I like to sit on one of my legs, leaning forward, meaning every time I get up I have no feeling in leg and need to jump around moaning. If I am watching movies or series, I like to lean back with legs up on desk, slacker style.

I like my little shinies, especially my World of Warcraft wireless headset., my G19 keyboard and Roccat mouse. I like how I can change the lighting and colours on all of them, and how I see everything even if I have no lights turned on. I also like how it’s possible to have “gaming gadgets” without it looking too geeky or masculine.

I really like my little corner, good thing, since I spend so much time there 🙂
