Resto4Life was originally created by Phaelia in March of 2007. While its primary focus remains Resto-centric, Currant, the Feral author of Druid Tank, was added in February of 2008 to help broaden the blog’s perspective. When mutual friend Valenna (of Rogue blog Parry! Dodge Spin!) rolled a Restoration Druid in June of 2008, he became an author under his character Korryna. All authors for Resto4Life are members of the Aegis Hestia guild on Scarlet Crusade (US).

Phaelia was originally conceived as a Cat Druid because of the video where a beautiful Night Elf Druid shapeshifts into a sleek, black panther. She quickly discovered an abiding love for healing, however, and with the help of her husband’s Retribution Paladin, leveled specced Restoration. This was long before the days of Tree of Life and Resto Druids’ emphasis on heals over time. She looks forward to continued growth, both personal and class-wide, as the game continues to evolve.
About the Author: Phaelia’s player graduated from Louisiana State University in 2003 with a B.S. in Information Systems and is currently employed as a VB.NET developer. She plays with her husband and former guild leader, though he generally lingers with one class only long enough to master it before finding something more interesting.
|Currant Feral Druid Posts from Currant Armory|
Currant grew up wanting to be a healer. She was never a star pupil though, and her spellcasting was short-lived as things started hitting her. Her pale blue complexion disagreed with the vast purple expanses that left behind. The first time she turned into a bear she was underwhelmed but turning into a cat made her very very happy, and she merrily scratched things to death for a while. When she became a dire bear for the first time, got hit in the face and just growled back angrily, she knew she’d discovered her calling in life. She’s still picking that poor guy out of her teeth.
About the Author: Currant’s player works for a major university (in the IT department) and still harbors illusions about writing someday, though with three children that may not be in the bones for the near future. He is married to an artist who is also a yoga instructor and he runs almost daily so he won’t get fat from all his video game-playing. Also, he hates onions. A lot. And pickles…what the hell were they thinking, ruining a perfectly good cucumber like that anyway? But he does like Spam. Go figure.
