Phaelia reports on a Resto experiment on the Patch Test Realms that gives me hope:
I started with Zahna, the elekk in Nagrand which is part of the "kill an elite of every animal race in nagrand" quest series. The fight was pretty easy, and I downed her on first try,
Truth be told, soloing 60 to 70 as deep resto was a horrible, painful experience. I stuck it out, though, even as Holy Priests and Protection Warriors were respeccing all around me. I was one of the last of the "main" characters to hit 70, but I did it true to my tree roots, Elune be praisedâ¦
This change (giving us 1/3 of our +healing as +damage) should make the 70 to 80- run less painful. Use the healing gear until you run our of mana, switch to feral gear until health dropd low, switch backâ¦ Rinse, wash, repeat.
Video embedded after the cut, for anyone who fancies seeing it.
