In the meantime however I decided to combine my gear upgrade search with the completing all heroics non-achievement. Or is it an achievement? I dunno right now, just ticking each one off slowly.
Only Want One Thing.
So I start off with a heroic Azjol Nerub, I pop into LFG tool and sign myself as LFG with healer nest to my name. I get a group together pretty quickly and we go in, I state that I will roll greed on everything apart from the one thing off the end boss that I want. That will be a need roll.
Someone else states that he only wants something off the second boss.
Err ... I put 'Healer' as my Spec??
I spotted a priest in the group and ask in /p if he is shadow. No response. So I assume he is.
After the first pull the priest asks: "Why is the pala healing". I respond because I am holy and I had stated I am a healer in the LFG tool, but I can go ret if needed.
He says I might as well. Luckily Itemrack has my ret set stored and my dual spec is ret, so 2 button clicks later and I am mashing face!!
Perfect Ret Rotation ... NOT!
So the first boss goes down easily and I am getting back into the swing of ret. Onto the second boss and I am remembering my rotations, kind of, CS > Judge > err ... Exc/DS/Cons whatever ... I go with that throwing out CS and judgements whenever they are off colldown. I manage to overtake the tank on damage done by the end of the second boss!!
The item the other guy wanted drops and he needs it, someone else asks if they can need it too. He says that he mentioned it at the start of the run and the other guy didn't, so no he couldn't.
Once the ring/sword/mouldy Big Mac is safely in guy #1's inventory it's
> ArseholeTankWarrior has left the group
The group disintegrates in seconds ...
> PissedOffMage has left the group.
> AnnoyedDruid has left the group.
> StupidHalfAFKPriest has left the group.
Get a New Group Together?
Well I have the heroic ID so I try and put another group together, just the final boss to do after all, but no-one seems interested, then I see a /lfg looking for tank and healer for Occulus daily HC. So after checking that a boss, again the last boss, has something I want I get an invite.
I head over to Titanicus Shieldy Thing and pick up the Occulus quest and get the daily shared with me.
Noob PUG incoming!
We get in and someone asks who apart from HW has not been here before (I had already owned up to that!) and everyone else say's it's their first time too. Oh Fucking Dear!!
We give it a try, I am healing again and some people die, I get lost when we first pick up the drakes and die. But we get near the end boss, then the tank leaves. FFS!!!
The DK tries to tank but gets wiped out quick smart because he ran off to pull with me even having time to Bacon him, by the time I get back within range he is one small hit away from death. HS, FoL charge up a HL ...
> NoobImpatientDK has died.
> Holy Light cancelled.
Again, the group implodes and I am left with another half completed heroic ID and no heroics ticked off my to-do-list.
Two Blue Rings.
Ah, well the quest that I completed in there rewarded a nice blue healy ring, so at least my rings are now blue and not green!!
Trinkets are the next to be upgraded, I think that's going to be slightly harder, and then I need an epic weapon!
Later on I noticed I also had a BoE blue healy ring that was not quite as nice as the 2 blues I now have, that'll be going to my auction house toon!
