Some days I really doubt whether I should be playing this game at all in a role that’s as pivotal as a priest. I just had the lag day from hell whileI was running some heroics. My first heroics even. I’m already sort of conscious about my healing ability and the lag just amplified it more. Tons of tank deaths and deaths of mine. It was just not very prettty. Sure we actually finished both heroics, but I came out feeling like I had to apologize to everyone for wasting their time.
On the bright side, I got some upgrades and the number of items that I have that are still subpar and pre-80 is slowly diminishing. I’m still sorely in need of items with crit, int or mp5 as I feel like I go out of mana way too fast. Northrend heroics are really brutal. With inexplicable lag, it’s half throwing away almost all motivation for continuing this game. What fun is healing when you are not even sure if the heal lands and you’re constantly trying to catch up because each new lag spike makes you more and more behind in healing. BAH.
I have a bevy of alts that I like to play. They don’t hold a candle to my main though. I hope it’s just a matter of 1) I have crazy bad internet luck today (I sincerely hope my internet isn’t *that* adverse to instances now) and 2) that maybe I’ve prematurely guessed that my gear is up to par and I really need to finish getting gear upgrades so that I can keep up even if there’s lag.
Anyways, I am just feeling like the worst healer ever right now.
