So I’m level 85, and have been since the 8th, I’ve just needed some time to take in the new content and really wanted to think about this post. There have definitely been some ups, some downs, and some absolute hilarity, but of course, also those things that just make you want to stab someone. Overall, though, level 85 has definitely been interesting and a pretty fresh experience overall, at least in comparison to Wrath – definitely reminiscent of The Burning Crusade, which I am perfectly okay with.
And by the way, Potion of Illusion is great fun, but it costs a few Volatile Lifes, and only lasts two minutes, and it is worth a lot of fun, but also makes you question what the devs were thinking with the mats and duration.
At any rate, healing has definitely been pretty interesting, though I’ve definitely decided against PUGs for the forseeable future. People just don’t seem to understand yet that crowd control is king on certain pulls. Or, moreover, that priests can’t dispel curses. Apparently, some mages are too busy killing things to actually, you know, decurse. Yes, that was his excuse. And he wasn’t even a fire mage, he was arcane. Yeah, pushing a fourth button is hard, amirite? So, in regards to actual healing, though, there have been numerous complaints about the “difficulty” of healing. Here’s my take on it.
