Friday Five: Five Things You May Not Know About My Boomkin




  1. Psychocandy was born at the start of January 2006. She was my very first WoW character, and my main up until Spring of last year.
  2. Did I mention that I actually leveled her as a healer? Yes,  I did that becasue I wanted to ensure I understood the healing role and would be ready to jump into main healing 5 mans and raids once she hit 60.
  3. I’d already had the raiding bug from the moment I rolled her, thanks to watching my SO raid ZG every week for several months. This is how my level 58 self ended up in Molten Core, healing.
  4. I wasn’t a maxed out restoration druid though. Up until Patch 3.0 I had a hybrid build of my own design (not the somewhat more common Dreamstate druid build.) I was never ever a tree. I was a crazy regrowth spamming caster lady. And I kicked everyone’s butt in the healing department. 🙂
  5. With Patch 3.0 I went Boomkin. I’d flirted with it earlier in BC, and after the changes to restoration healing made tree pretty much mandatory for performing well, it seemed like a good idea to make that swap. And once you start boomkin dancing, it’s hard to go back…

BONUS: My character’s name is Psychocandy. You may call her Candy for short. No, you may not call her Psycho. She’s named after a song. Go listen to it.

Next time: Anexxia gets the trip down memory lane.

  1. Ahh, yes, I know about the boomkin bug all too well.
    I was a healer who occasionally moonlighted as feral before. I said I would never (NEVER) go balance.
    When Wrath came, I decided to suck it up and try something different (but ONLY FOR LEVELING!). Then I was asked to go Boom, and I’ve never looked back.
    Three cheers for boomkin!!!
