Ok, so I readily recognize that I am more forgetful than most, but tell me this: Why the heck are there several vendors selling Badge of Triumph gear? I remember way back when TOC came out, taking a look at the Tier 9 gear sold by Aspirant Forudir up in Icecrown. However that was way back when?
Well, since then my brain has been taken up a bunch of stuff (I guess I have limited space) so I forgot about Aspirant Forudir and his Tier 9 goodies. I only remembered the vendor who sells Badge of Triumph gear in Dalaran. Not to mention that when I go to see what is buyable with Badge of Triumph gear in my Atlas loot addon, it does not include Tier 9 gear (separate category in atlas loot).
Long story short, I have had a lot of triumph badges that I hadn't spent. So when I had this a-ha moment the other day, I went and bought two pieces of Tier 9 gear so now I am rocking the 2 piece Tier 9 bonus along with the 2 piece Tier 8 bonus. But seriously, why isn't all Badge of Triumph gear sold by the vendors in Dal? Please Blizz, consider consolidating them... think of forgetful folks like me! /sigh
Anyways, I haven't raided yet with the 2 piece Tier 9 bonus, so I have yet to see what it can do. On another resto druid note though, are there any other trees who actually use Regrowth? Am I the only one? I actually played with trying out Glyph of Regrowth when we raided 10 man TOC the other night. I may have to do some more comparisons, but I seriously think that the glyph gave me some crazy healing numbers... 4000-5000 hps on certain fights.
I know Nourish is the newer sexier spell, but I don't know, I definitely don't use it as much as I think other trees do. Currently I think my top heals are Rejuv, Lifebloom, Regrowth, then Nourish. On 10 man fights where there is significant raid damage, I really like Regrowth's big initial heal, then the long hot on the spell. Plus I wonder if the 20% increased healing if I time a second Regrowth near the end of the first one is better than the 6% from Glyph of Nourish?
Are folks using nourish because its more mana friendly? If I'm not running out of mana, is it ok for me to be regrowth-ing so much? Am I just a noob?
