Over the last two raid weeks I've participated in a bit of 25 man TOC with two sister guilds we know well, Emerald and Mimik plus a random friend or pug or two. Last week I was lucky enough to pick up Solace of the Defeated which is just an awesome awesome trinket. I <3 it. Now last night we completed the Faction Champion pvp encounter for the first time. Incredibly, not a single one of the 25 folks, nor a single one of the 4 pets died. Everyone was alive at the end! I kinda thought that there should have been an achievement for this.
Anyways, I think I'm getting a bit more used to running 25 mans. I'm not as much "OMG TOO MANY GRID BOXES!!!" as I was before. Though since I'm not running regularly with these folks, its still a bit hard for me to find a non-tank's specific grid box... for example when someone needs heals for incinerate flesh on Jaraxxus. Also on Northrend Beasts encounter, for a second I found myself actually fully hotting up a fellow resto druid, Fiona. Why? Well her little orange grid box was right next to Fonzy, the druid tank's little orange grid box. Two orange grid boxes side by side that started with F! Oopsies.
Some other differences? Well yeah, of course there was a bit of "OMG TOO MANY PEEPS STANDING TOO CLOSE TO ME!!!" in the Jaraxxus encounter. Here's something interesting, we never once discussed healing assignments even the first week we were there. It just kinda worked out. And Jess would be shocked to see how I am in a 25 man, because I keep my mouth shut and don't say a word in vent. Even though a good number of the folks in the raid are folks I know, I don't know, I just keep my mic muted. Maybe its just to keep the illusion up with them that I am actually a sweet, innocent, nice healer! :)
