We killed Yor’shaj heroic, finally, and came a hair away from a Zon’ozz kill.  This is something we really, very much-needed as a guild.  Our progression in Dragon Soul was stalled, as it was in Tier 12, at the first few weeks, until we got comfortable with the instance.

More totems, FASTER

So we decided to finish our second Dragonwrath before hitting Dragon Soul last night.  This included a full 7/7 heroic run of Firelands.  I had decided to break my long standing gruge against anything non-mastery related.  So I reforged.  Everything.  Mastery became haste.  Crit….for the most part stayed crit, but sometimes became haste.  The end result was me going from a modest 916 haste rating to 2015, this gives me another tick of riptide heal on an unrefreshed HoT.  My crit chance is around 20% unbuffed, which is pretty much what it was previously.  My mastery plummeted from around 57% increased healing based on health to 30%-ish. 

On farm content, it felt great.  The logs look great.  My HPS has gone up.  Problem?  It’s farm content.  I know all these fights, intimately.  It’s not what I want to gauge myself on.

We did get about an hour on Zon’ozz, with a second Dragonwrath.  We made progress.  Again, my healing felt better, a lot better.  The faster heals push my HPS in a more reactive way, which is what I’m going to need on progression.  True, I’ll spend mana faster, but I’ve switched (For the moment)  to regen trinkets, and speced into Telluric Currents rather than Focused Insight.  I feel like it’s a good change, I can push the heals hard when I need to, and regen when I don’t.

To do:  Figure out if my stat priority will be Haste>Matery>Crit or Haste>Crit>Mastery.  Ug, still so many decisions.
