The Mage hits 80

Posted in General, mage with tags , on February 9, 2009 by rocklawthepally

While this is unrelated to the Light or how to swing it, my mage powered through the last two levels to 80 last night. Whee! I respecced to the standard 0/51/20 raid spec. Now I’ve got to start getting my gear sorted out and work on my hit cap. Running dungeons has gotta be key.

As for my pally, my 10-man group pretty much has Naxx on farm except for Grobb, Thadd, Sapph and Kel’Thuzad. Those are fights that we’re still getting our heads around. K’T has dropped twice for us now, thankfully.

Been thinking a little more about the incoming 3.1 changes (and what we hear will be a stealth, drive-by early Divine Plea nerf in 3.0.9) and I’m less and less worried about it.  I will still get my mana back, but the content we’re currently doing is well within my gear capabilities, ragardless of the 50% healing nerf.  Indeed, there are only one or two more drops in Naxx-10 that I could benefit from and we’re shifting to 25-man so my healing will only get stronger.  I’m running around 2300 raid-buffed spell power so the nerf isn’t that big a deal in the long run.
