Hands-down my favorite part of contributing to this site is writing articles like this. It’s also the type of thing I search most for when I look at other blogs & online resources for healing. It’s nice to read about general things like boss mechanics, what classes are strong at a given time, how you should weigh your stats, and all that stuff, but I really like getting & giving feedback about heroic fights from other resto shamans.

Some more great news from the PTR Dataminers! The map image for Isle of Giants has changed very slightly, however, very significantly. Take a look for yourself:
