My name is Darista, or fondly known as Daritos by guildies (hence the blog title), and I have played a Mage as my main character on World of Warcraft up until now. I am switching to a Resto Shaman for the Cataclysm expansion for a change of pace from the 5 years I’ve spent casting Fireballs, Arcane Blasts, and Frostbolts during raids. My Mage will not completely take the back burner, but my focus will definitely be on my healer.
I play several toons, one of each class to be exact, not because I feel the need to gear up tons of characters and be “that person”, but because I like to get a feel for what other classes can do and how those abilities can be utilized in group situations. As an officer in my guild, I feel it’s necessary to know what to expect from your raiders at any given time, and first hand experience playing the different roles is indispensable.
I am horrible at theorycrafting (we usually leave that to our rogue friend, Fusion), so don’t expect any high tech math from me on here. I am fully expecting this blog to be a resource of information on a few different subjects, a big one being add-ons and macros. I’m an avid user of both and I love to share my knowledge on each of these.
If you would like, I am on Twitter @_darista_ and you are more than welcome to follow me!
