Then I made a priest...and actually decided last week to start playing her. OMG (that's "Oh my gravy," for those of you who don't know me LOL). I LOVE her. I've never attempted a healer in six years of playing WoW because frankly, I don't understand all that stuff about the stats and gear scores and iLevels and such, and it was all I could do to play my hunter or occasional warlock or mage all that well. But...with the help of an addon called "Healium," I have found my niche at long last. Everyone needs a healer. PUGs take almost no time in queue for a healer. I don't even queue for DPS at all I'm enjoying healing so much. And...today the ultimate compliment...I entered an instance in a random PUG (Pick-Up Group for you non-gamer types lol), and one of the DPS in the group, who I'd run with a couple times over the weekend, got excited and told the rest of the group he'd run with me before and what an awesome healer I am. Wow. I've NEVER had that happen...it was awesome.
So...I'm back into gaming, in a big, big way. My guild is running Naxx this Friday...I'm level 65 and hoping I can make it to 80 by then so I can join in and get some great gear and much-needed raid-healing experience. I still don't understand the finer points of the game (all those numbers...I hate math...sheesh) but I'm having so much fun, and its a nice escape from the daily pain and monotony of this thing I call life.
Anyone who plays WoW...come play with me!
