The Daily Quest: Healing and you


WoW Insider’s on a [hide]Daily Quest[/hide] to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

And now, it’s time for another round of Vanilla Nostalgia, courtesy of yours truly. When healing back in vanilla, «mana regen» was what you called chugging a potion. MP5? We had no idea what that was back then. Healers dragged along as many mana potions as they could stuff in their bags, and you could use as many as you wanted in a fight, although you were still limited by a 2-minute cooldown. However, you could use different kinds of potions while that first one was on its 2-minute cooldown. Enter Felwood, otherwise known as that rotten, misbegotten hole I spent I don’t know how many hours in farming stupid plants on off-nights.

The plants in Felwood were useful, particularly [hide]Night Dragon’s Breath[/hide]. It also had a 2-minute cooldown but returned a healthy chunk of mana — just enough, in fact, to get you to that next [hide]Major Mana Potion[/hide] once it was off cooldown. Farming the plants, however, was tricky. You had to get [hide]Cenarion Plant Salve[/hide], apply it to a [hide]Corrupted Night Dragon[/hide], and then take the cleansed plant. These plants spawned on a timer in a circuit around Felwood. Night Dragon’s Breath runs usually lasted three to four hours at a time, yielding enough plants for a week or so of raiding — if you were lucky.

Lesson over! Aren’t we glad we don’t have to muck about with plants anymore? Today, we’ve got some posts from around the blogosphere with all kinds of information on healing in patch 4.2.

[hide]Kurn’s Corner[/hide] discusses paladin healing in 4.2 and a gigantic [hide]lack of mana[/hide].

[hide]Totem Forest[/hide] picks apart the Eye of Blazing Power from a [hide]resto shaman perspective[/hide].

[hide]Foofy’s CupCake Factory[/hide] has put together a very nice video going over the basics of [hide]resto druid healing[/hide] in patch 4.2.

[hide]World of Matticus[/hide] has some tips for all healers headed into the [hide]Lord Rhyolith encounter[/hide].

Is there a story out there we ought to link or a blog we should be following? Just leave us a comment, and you may see it here tomorrow! Be sure to check out our [hide]WoW Resources Guide[/hide] for more WoW-related sites.
