Guys it’s like one of those SAT problems…
Hot lava: jumping fail
(b) 17th century
(c) a big word you’ve never seen before but looks slightly dirty
(d) running fail
And the answer is OMG SAT FLASHBACKS ARRGH. I mean (d).
I am just the WORST at those stupid Alys tornadoes. And, I’m embarrassed to say, I never even saw them before they were “slowed down” in the nerf. Pre-nerf, it must have been unbearably twitch reflexy for all but the most coked-out ferrets.
So, uh, since I super-suck, I cheat, and through cheating I live. I keep desperate prayer on cooldown and save it for lava runs. I inevitably get to low health through my own stupidity and need my insta self-heal. Also, I use body and soul for the speed boost. My bubble isn’t that strong, but it helps. I haven’t had to use Guardian Spirit. Yet. With my luck, I’d croak right as the buff ran out. Or croak, it procs and saves me, and then I subsequently re-die. Because that’s just what I do.1
Now, if I were a non-healing class, I’d maybe have to L2P. Ok, no I wouldn’t. I’d still use something cheaty like dispersion.
I’d truly like to have better reflexes and save my “oh shit” cooldowns for other things. But that’s not in the cards for me without some serious robot devil hands.
Better a live priest without any cooldowns left than a gnome-shaped splotch on the floor.
- Fact: I re-die at least 50% of the time I’m battle rezzed, though in fairness, many of the subsequent deaths are not my fault. ↩
