Val’anyr, Hammer of the Ancient Kings? April 27, 2009

So, while nearly every other healer is lusting after Valanyr (and to be honest, who wouldn’t be), I’ve decided to set my sights on another prize.


Now, don’t get me wrong, I’d love a shot at Valanyr as much as the next person, but looking at this realistically, that wont happen. Not until loooong after my guild has out geared the content and moved on to the next raid instance. I’m a fairly new member of my guild, all of the other healers have been there together for ages (or so it seems to me), and right now I’m not feeling very up-to-par either.

But that beautiful weapon…. that is within my grasp, and to be honest, I think it might be the best weapon out there for me, perhaps even better than Valanyr, since I dont think I’ll get much use out of the proc.  Since it seems no one knows for sure how the proc will behave, I wont say that firmly, but there it is.  My guild easily killed the Iron Council on their first night of trying, so I know this will be mine eventually.

Though I think Rapture is the better staff, The Lifebinder is very appealing as well.  Looks nearly the same, if not exactly, and has similar stats, exchanging spirit and crit for haste.

As a resto druid I’ve never favored crit or haste, though I think haste might be slightly more valuable for lowering my global cool downs.  The big difference, for me, between the two weapons is in the amount of Spirit. 121 vs 80.  Rapture wins.

And, thus, I lust for that weapon more than I have ever lusted for a single piece of gear in this game.

This blog is named for the reagent required by Rebirth (Rank 7), a level 80 spell used by Druids to resurrect, in combat, a fallen comrade.  It’s a small item, but an important one, essential to all druids.  Of course many Druids, such as myself, have glyphed out of needing reagents for their Rebirth spells.  Still, the idea of a small, important, thing suits my intentions.

I plan to use this blog as a place to discuss my personal views on restoration healing in order to improve my performance, and maybe even help someone else.  There might be original information here, but to be realistic there are many Restoration Druid blogs out there, so Ican foresee myself covering the same stuff as everyone else.  Regardless, I’ll do my best to provide a unique perspective, no promises though!

I am a spell power- and spirit-stacking HoT healer.  My spec is pretty standard with an emphasis on fast casts and strong HoTs.  Also I seem obsessed with achievements and you will probably be hearing about my progress.
