Time for a quick update since it has been a whole week since Leesah dinged 80.
It was quite a successful weekend. I had started off healing normal level 80 dungeons and struggling to heal normal ToC, and doing shocking dps in random heroics as Moonkin. After a couple of lucky drops and a badge upgrade or two (it was mainly Bone Golem Scapula and 2-piece tier 9 that convinced me!), I decided to bite the bullet and heal a heroic.
I chose carefully from a few select dungeons and ended up in Utgarde Keep. What followed was the most ridiculously quick blast-through I have been part of. I barely healed - the tank barely took damage, and each pull lasted no more than 10 seconds. The whole dungeon was complete in about 10 mins. I got the feeling that my victory over healing a heroic was slightly hollow.
I healed many more heroics over the weekend, but there were two that really made me feel more like a Real Heroic Healer. Firstly, Heroic ToC. I was petrified when the loading screen came up, especially after the Champions were down and next up was Paletress. The group wasn't super-geared and we had to work for it, but we got through it all and no-one died, and I was ecstatic and shaking like a leaf by the end of it.
The second one was Halls of Stone. I knew that the Brann event was tough to heal - I had been in there on heroic as Moonkin the previous day when a few of the group had died, but this time I healed my lil barky arse off and no-one died, and I was so proud that I had to go and have a stiff drink afterwards.
Tonight I picked up the Looking For Many achievement as well, but I've still got a few more dungeon elders to visit before the other title of the season.
So even though Leesah now has more purples than blues (but still green trinkets!), I know there's still a long way to go. It's all about practice, and getting those Emblems at the moment. And I'm loving every minute of it :)
