Confessions of a Solo Healer – I Got This!!
The title has absolutely nothing to do with the content of this post. I just said it to annoy Nos. Although it really was an epic win if you really think about it. Phase 2 of Heroic Warmaster. He’s roaring. There’s shockwaves everywhere (which Mav died on the first shockwave), he hits like a truck.. people were blowing each other up until the dragon flew away… And when Mav went down, nobody called wipe. Let’s just see how far we can get… for practice on this phase. Right? Right?????
Tranq.. tree form… barkskin… hit by a shockwave NOOOO… I didn’t die…hit by shockwave again.. I LIVE. We all lived! Well.. most of us. And he DIED!! DIED!!! And from 80% to his death I healed it all by myself. For our first Heroic Warmaster kill. You can yell 30% buff all you want, and druids maybe OP but you CANT TAKE AWAY MY THUNDER! BAHAHAHA!!!
Ok, so this post had a little bit to do with the title. Just because I haven’t quite annoyed the crap out of my guild with it yet. You all wanted me to post! So you can blame Nos for that! On the flip side, Reluu solo healed a side on H Morchok, which I probably wouldn’t have been able to do so kudos! And MT is now 6/8H. Not too shabby!
And now that this post has become totally not what I was going to write about (and I guess it makes sense to actually have a title match the content), let’s take a look at MT”s progress since the beginning of Cataclysm.
Tier 11 – We cleared 12/12N prior to the nerf bat. Yay! Nobody wanted to do heroics. When I said “whos’ up for Heroic Halfus?” I got a resounding “HELL NO!” Ok then!
Tier 12 – We cleared 6/7 prior to the nerf with one attempt on Rag. We got Rag the next week. There was still a retarded amount of time before 4.3 dropped, so then what? “Heroic Shannox is a loot pinata, who’s in?” … and I was met with a grumble from Yakk and a “Oh alright…” It took us about 3 weeks to kill Heroic Shannox while farming the rest of FL. It was hard to gauge just how much time to spend on him each week since we really couldn’t go any further until he was dead on either normal or heroic. Once we had H Shannox on farm, we looked at some of the other heroic fights and decided Majordomo was the next “easiest“. All of a sudden we were 2/7H! Go MT! We dabbled a bit on H Ryo and H Bael until saying eff this on to DS!
Funny enough, that wasn’t the first time I was in that healing position. In early Cata, when there was only one raid boss in Baradin Hold, I took my druid in to heal after she just ding’d 85. Back then, the highest ilvl gear was 359. I was in heroic blues. Giz was leading the group (nuff said?). Anyway, we were all “let’s 2 heal this” even though I was in heroic blues.. it’s like Star being one of 2 healers on her pally (who is better geared than my druid was). Krur said in vent “I’ll stay dps since I was doing dailies before zoning in”. Apparently nobody heard this but me. Emor sure didn’t.
So we pulled the boss, and I was healing my face off. Dispelling my face off. I was oom and 4 people were dead. WTFBBQ??? We still one shot the boss. When we finished, Krur linked the healing recount and said “Uh, Aly solo’d that”. Both healers (Krur and Emor) went dps. Oops!
Maybe I should have named this post “Nerf Druids.”
