I am the sick, headachey, groggy druid. I stayed home today to rest and hope that the constant pressure of a thousand murlocs banging on the inside of my skull would abate... and after being unsuccessful in my attempts to sleep, my little shaman alt Stardance hit 80. She's been temporarily nicknamed ScrubShammy.
I was going to post a druid-specific run-down of the stat changes, but I feel like a bunch of other bloggers have beaten it into the ground already and I don't really have anything new to add. Whee.
Have a raid tonight... hoping it will be more successful than the past couple weeks'. Last week saw the instance eject the entire group at Saurfang and not let us back in until the next evening, and then we had a bunch of raiders with rl problems/moving/religious dinners/etc that caused us to cancel about 3 total raids over the past 2 weeks: we only have three raid nights per week as it is. This on top of the instance being broken and not letting us in for a night has made for a very mopey Kae in regards to getting in on the Arthas slaughter.
We've also got the zone-wide buff now, added in this morning's maintainance. I'm sad that we didn't get to say "in before the nerf."
Kaeya-rogue-alt did get her "alt ToGC10 run" started this past weekend. After banging our heads repeatedly on the beasts, however, we slowly started filtering back on our mains: many alts just didn't have the gear or class/role experience to make it possible. We finished the run with an Anub kill with a single guildie alt and two pug alts (one an unguilded friend of Vortex) in the raid... everyone else, myself included, were on mains. Kaeya didn't get a single boss kill... and I had to shard her boots and a dagger (had to swap to my main to heal the Beasts). My rogue hasn't come out of the corner she holed up in, and the ground is still damp with her tears. /console rogue alt.
Bought a house. Moving next month. Have lots of painting to do. Been watching HGTV and DIY to get some ideas. Plotting on getting (finally) my puppy. Working on not being sick anymore. Gonna go run my random daily and help finish making dinner before the raid starts.
That's my ramble for the day :)
