Badges Badges Badges...Loot!

So 2.4 arrived, but the badge vendor had not yet. We did our dailies - every day, and every one, on two toons, no less! And now, the BADGE vendor has arrived. Deressy has been hoarding her badges for weeks now, in anticipation of this moment. Still about 200 badges short, she did go and pick up a few items!

Of course, what every healer has been ogling since it was first announced, Deressy's first purchase was Gavel of Naaru Blessings. Now, she had to decide whether to wait and save 100 badges or pick up another slightly less expensive item. Deressy chose to spend spend spend and finally got rid of her T4 gloves, replacing them with Oakleaf-spun Handguards. It was an obvious choice due to the fact that she was using her T4 shoulders (even though she had better shoulders, Gnarled Ironwood Pauldrons) in order to take advantage of the set bonus with her T4 gloves/shoulders combo.

Deressy's +heal is now a whopping 1961! She can also regenerate 195 mp5 while casting.

Just prior to entering Kara, I had a +Healing of 730. I figured I was doing pretty good. Then I heard what the other healers had... +1780, +1650, etc. I was mortified! How could I hope to do *anything* with my sub-800 healing?! But less than a week later, I was up to +1230. Between some nice drops in Kara, a couple of helpful enchants, turning in some PVP points for a new mace (which I had to go train for) and a rather short Lower City rep grind to pick up the Lower City Prayer Book, I saw a nice jump in stats.

Now I'm starting to focus on some "must-replace" gear (like my chestpiece) and grinding a bit more rep for some lovely upgrades. I sometimes wonder how others seem to manage to balance raiding, rep grinding, dailies, grinding for upgrades and...oh yeah... real life.
