Hello World!

I was talking with my husband a few days ago and complaining that so much of the resto druid analysis that's currently available on the web (mostly blogs and such) is geared towards folks who are running 25 mans and/or hardmodes.  I realized that I could help fill that niche - analysis and opinions for a 10 man raider who is unlikely to see hardmodes.  So, here I am.

About me:
I've been raiding on a resto druid since early ICC.  I've had a mage since vanilla, but the guild I was in at the time was short healers, so my husband and I RAF'ed some toons and I got the druid to level cap.  I discovered that I LOVE healing, and promptly shelved my mage (for raiding; I still do achievements and pet/mount collecting on her).

I bounced around a lot of guilds during ICC.  My original guild (a small friends and family guild that I had been in since vanilla) disbanded due to lack of ability to raid, so I've tried a lot of different raiding styles with different guilds (from "we can't kill Sindy even with the 30% buff" to killing her on HM in a 25 man group).

My goal going into Cataclysm was to set up a early raid group (my husband has to be at work at 3 am), and we're almost ready to start (I ended up having to wait for some folks to level their alts).  I didn't like the pressure of progression raiding, and am looking forward to relaxing and seeing the content with this group.   We're the seventh group in the guild (it's a mega guild, obviously), and there are a lot of skilled players in the guild; several of which have joined us for this group.

When I'm not druiding, I can be found playing the auction house, achievement hunting on my mage, or leveling alts with my husband.

  1. I'm definitely looking forward to reading your thoughts on 10 man raiding, since I spend quite a bit of time doing that myself. (And I agree, it seems like there are significantly fewer druid bloggers who focus on 10m than on 25m.) Good luck with the blog, can't wait to read more!
