Kelsela - I have read alot of blogs of people bitching about about undergeared tanks in the new lfd .. as healz .. I think its awesome. Brings some excitement to the boring heroic. I'm not uber .. I am in mostly 232-245 gear with a 200 hanging around and an ony helm .. but I pride myself (and thank vuhdo) at being a pretty ok healer. That being said, when I queued up, got UP and a DK tank and I saw he had about 26k hps (after buffs) I approached the instance with some slight trepidation. After the first couple of pulls it didn't make me feel better.. he was pulling just over 1k dps, and 2 of the 3 dps were pushing 4k and vuh do showing little red arrows of oh shit were poppin up everywhere. Including on me with my frantic full party healing.. This 5 man actually had the feeling of a good tight raid.. We made it through .. with only 1 dps casualty which was a 2 shot I couldn't do much about. And I'd be lying if I didn't say I didn't enjoy praise .. but at the end of the run the dk tank obviously knowing he wasn't quite ready for UP said "holy crap I made it through without dying .. thats a first" even if it wasn't directly pointed at me and my epic heals, I got a little misty .. :-) so 2 more frosts down 13 to go for my cloak .. woot ..
Did my gem transmute got only one .. how sad .. noticed titanium was selling for a nice profit over saronite so picked up the cheapest 4 stacks of saronite I could find transmuted and got 17 instead of 10 sweet should be an easy 100 gold profit. I keep forgetting to go transmute spellweave because its such a hassle to fly to dragonblight, at least when the lfd wasn't around flying to the instance always let me stop on the way, so I haven't done my cloth transmutes in like 2 weeks.
Calrisian - ran the random got nexus again, smoother then my first time tanking which is always nice. No fun stories, no upgrades. but I got to DE a couple of thigns and get my enchanting to 360, and I am spending way to much of my mains limited cash stack to level BS to 360 as well ..
