Most of you know that my shammy is primarily resto.
There's a problem with the 'Alt Math'
Every raid has:
Well, what happens when your guildies all get bored and want to level and/or raid on their alts as well?
A few dps folks create another dps alt, just to try it out - say a melee goes with a caster etc. A few might make a tank. Tanks make a healer or dps. Healers make a dps or tank, although a few seem to make another healer. MOST of the dps seem to make healers! :) So, in our alt raid we have:
Heh, the last couple primary guild alt raids I've done, we've had way too many healers, so lots of juggling for offspec dps. Imagine the loot rolls: I've been asked to enhancement dps, so I have to type: 'alt offspec' in my bids. How do we determine that from 'main,' 'main offspec,' 'alt main,' and 'alt offspec'?
So, while I like healing on my shammy, I've found that I'm spending more of my time hitting stuff again. >.> This lead me to another gear and spending blitz over the past week, but at least now I have the ability to contribute some dps if we have TOO MANY HEALERS again.
I didn't know such a thing was even possible.
