Auryann of Scarlet Crusade is a recent addition to my guild Aegis Hestia. She went through our application process as a Feral, with her furry tail swishing left and right. However, due to a recent influx of Ferals, it was decided by those-who-decide-things that we could not afford to take her on were she to remain Feral-specced. She was so well-liked, however, that those-who-decide-things asked if she would be willing to respec Restoration so that we could invite her. Luckily, she agreed. This was great news for all involved; our guild gained a skilled player with wonderful personality, and I was no longer the only Restoration Druid! This, of course, opens up a whole host of possibilities for Tree-related puns (can’t see the raid for the Trees, leaf us alone, etc.).
Auryann has started her own blog, Lifebloom and You, that focuses on her transition from Feral to Restoration. Here’s a snippet from one of her first content articles, “Oops, forgot to mana up”:
After switching, there were a few things I had to get use to doing again. First, I had to remember to drink up which is something I never did as a feral druid. I never needed mana. Okay, sometimes I did. So often after finishing a fight and heading to another one people had to often remind me to drink up. Oops.
