Thoughts: So Niremere’s been enjoying a renaissance of sorts since I switched from Ret to Holy; the new spec gives me A CRAPTON OF SHINY BUTTONS that sparkle and stuff when they proc and say USE ME!  Lord knows I like having shiny buttons to press regardless of whether or not the spell in question is even useful.  As her gear has improved (NO MORE HEROIC DUNGEON WEAPON THANK GAWD YAY), she’s been having fewer mana issues over all – though long, damage heavy fights like the Fallen Protectors still pose a challenge for me in terms of mana management.  (Is Divine Plea off cooldown yet?  Is it now?  How about now?  Anytime soon?  How do we not have any shamans in this LFR?  Oooh a druid, can I get an Innervate?  Hello?)  I even glyphed Lay on Hands to give 10% mana back when used … but I’ve realized that 10% isn’t actually all that much.  /sadface

But still!  Shiny buttons!  When I want to smash my way though an old school transmog run, I use Protection and am happy.  Then when I want to actually interact with people, I go Holy.

Nir’s been damn lucky with loot, and is currently the only gal I’ve got who has the tier chest from LFR.  When I turned it in, I was most pleasantly surprised to discover that unlike a lot of LFR sets (the shaman’s LFR Firebird look or the paladin’s LFR Lightning Emperor getup, for example), the paladin one is not nuclear snot green!  In fact, it was actually ATTRACTIVE.  The color scheme even made SENSE for an Alliance paladin!  My mind, it was boggled!

So of course I had to mog something around it, amirite?

      Thanks! I am, now that I have a better sense of what I’m doing (especially in regards to Holy Power) and now that I’m no longer coming in under the tanks in terms of healing done. /cough THAT was an awkward phase.

    That set looks lovely! Congrats on the tier chest too. Sounds like you’re having lots more fun with holy than ret. 😀
    I can only hope I’ll keep getting along with it as my little holy paladin grows up.

    Lol, when I first went from Ret to Holy it was pretty much a neverending stream of OH WHAT THE FUCK PRESS ALL THE BUTTONS!!!! I have ADD, so it’s the same on my Hunter. Thrill of the Hunt makes Arcane Shot glow and all of a sudden my rotation goes from complex to YAY SHINY STUFF SHOTS!! PEW PEW PEW!! and then I black out, wake up and go to work. Grats on the sweet lewts.

    Another lovely set, as usual! 😀

    PS. I’m not kidding when I say this, but get on in there and hit that boss with your holy weapon. Last I played my pally we got mana back that way as well.

      Thank ya! I’ll have to read up on that, as I had been under the impression that smack-the-boss-get-mana was either toned way back or removed entirely. I’m not sure if me getting in melee range is a good idea, actually … /standsinallthethings
