I don't know if poor Naneeri would have managed to get played at all this week despite all my good intentions if it hadn't been first for Kamalia taking the time to comment with a really helpful basic rundown of shaman healing. Thank you so much. :) That set me in order enough that I sat down and got Vuhdo and her bars all configured. I looked over her armor and realized that at some point I'd apparently already started trying to convert her into int gear so she was wearing sort of 50/50 int and agi gear. (She still is. It's terrible.)
But there's some int there and I had the bars set up and went and did a few quests in resto to try and get some of the basics down. Killing things was painfully slow, but she survived very well and I started to feel like I had a handle on it. And that's where my friend SprYte came in. She has handy warrior tanks scattered throughout the levels on both factions and it just so happened that a Night Elf we'll call Sefy was just the right level to bravely volunteer to be Naneeri's healing guinea pig and escort her through dungeons.
After a couple of dungeon runs Naneeri was well into level 49. Doing the Hallow's End quest chain this morning was enough to manage this:
And speaking of her server, it's the other one I play on that's getting merged Monday. I'm waiting very anxiously to see how all that turns out.
Seish did yet another LFR today. Got in for the last two bosses of the Forgotten Depths, purely in hopes of getting some more of those elusive Secrets, but of course there were none to be had. If I can squeeze it in tomorrow I'll try another wing of it, even thought at this point it feels a lot like banging my head on a wall. I need nine more of the things but I just can't get them to drop. Oh well, nothing for it but to keep trying.
