Dunderz <Ecology> [H] Kazzak-EU (active: Sept. 2015 – present)

Was the resto shaman of Pwnanza Dragon for three years, he was part of the guild’s advancement from top 100 rankings to a very impressive world 5th kill on Archimonde Mythic. Retired from hardcore raiding, he is now chilling with the guys from Ecology on Kazzak (well.. “chilling” as they still landed a world rank 22 Helya kill).

 

Halûcinogen <ScrubBusters> [A] The Maelstrom-EU (active: Sept. 2015 – present)

Halu was a long time raider for Enraged Revolution on Ragnaros EU (horde side) where he took on raid leading duties for a period of time. He is now a steady addition to the ScrubBusters team – a guild that has been holding many world top 10 positions, for many years while never raiding before dinner.

 

Keehn <Ðanish Terrace> [A] Sylvanas-EU (active: Sept. 2015 – present 2017)

Playing since Wrath, Keehn found his way to Ðanish Terrace mid-Firelands. He was a social that made it into team 3. During Dragon Soul, team 1 was in need of a healer, and he got a chance. Since then, he has been part of the guilds staggering progress from rank 3000, all the way to rank 19 on Archimond Mythic and rank 5 Xavius Mythic. Recently retired, but still a passionate resto shaman. Keehn is the reviewer of the resto shaman guide on Icy Veins.

Sensations <HC> [H] Burning Legion – US (active: July 2017 – present)

Sensations started raiding back in WotLK in a top 500 guild, that guild disbanded and a couple people decided to create the guild <HC>. Since Throne of Thunder, he has been the GM and RL of <HC> since then. Consistently top 250 to top 100. He considers shamans to be the most versatile healer and believes they should be treated as such: “People are prone to end up in an echo chamber in the shaman community.”

Nihilith (author) Reincarnated [H] Dentarg-EU (active: Dec. 2016 – Jan. 2017)

Nihilith has been an active member of the chainheal-community for quite a while. She plays the game since the launch of BC and has mained a resto shaman since Cataclysm. Her passion for the game and the spec radiates through the answers she provide people with. Therefore, we asked her to join our author team. After a short (but productive) while, she decided she needed a bit of time off from the game. She still is passionate about the site, and the community.
