Healing assignments?

3 posts in this topic



I just wondered if you experienced raiders doing healing assignments on your encounters.


Are you assign a healer to tanks and other healers are healing different groups of the raid? Or are your healers healing everyone on demand?


Any information is appreciated.


Thank you!

Well, I'm not sure if it's a general raiders work. 

Normally it's more of a RL or healing coordinator work, I would say.


I can tell you what I personally is doing as a healing coordinator of our raid team.


Normally before we start progressing on a new boss, I'm going with my RL through the tactic and decide whether it needs special attention and changes in'standard' healing.


The assignments are more for boss mechanics rather than for groups or tanks.


There are fights where I write in advance assignments for raid CD chaining or target healing duty.

Sometimes I ask guys to change a talent or glyph for a specific encounter.

It might happen that I’ll call  for a raid CD if something goes terribly wrong even if it wasn't in assignments.


Well, if you need some example, that's what I wrote before HC Mar'goc (I will delete our raiders names and put their classes instead). We are using gather and AOE all the small adds tactic here:

Shadow Priest:
- Glyph of Vampiric Embrace
- DPS boss with Vampiric Embraceduring small add killing

Smoke bomb on small adds AoE starting from RL saying “AoE adds”
Rogue 1 -> Rogue 2

Disc Priest:
- 100% shields up on tanks and hunters that handle Branded
- double shields for tank with mark of chaos from phase 3
- double shields for hunters from phase 3
- shielding the raid with Power Infusion before Force Novas
- PW: Barrier when RL says “AoE adds”

Holy Paladin:
- Devo Aura on Force Novas
- healing with Avenger Wrath on triple Force Nova
- Hand of Sacrifice on warrior-tank with Mark of Chaos from phase 3

Resto Shaman:
- CDs on first transition phase
- CDs on triple Force Nova (8 sec between casts)
- Spirit Link totem on small adds AoE together with Tranq

Resto Druids:
- sort by yourself who will cast first Tranq and first Stampeding Roar
- swap Lifebloom between hunters with Branded
- cast Stampeding Roar on the knocking back Force Novas. On the Triple Nova sort the cast order between yourself and feral druid. The pause between casts is 8 sec - enough to use a Roar for every Nova.
We have the first small adds wave between 4th and 5th minute and the second wave between 9th and 10th.
- use Tranq as a mana saving ability at first minute, so it will be back around 4:20. One of you will cast first Tranq when the raid will be low from killing accidental adds.
On this graph you can see what I mean - time from 8:10 until 8:50: (here was the graph)

The second Tranq should be casted about 5 sec after RL says “AoE adds”.

Same for the second wave of small adds.

For all healers:
- Immediate DISPELS of Slow debuff.
- try to come with 80%+ of mana to the 7th minute of fight.
- Do not drink channeling pot before 6th min. Announce in Vent when you are drinking.


It can be less complicated too, for example on Brackenspore I'll ask Holy Paladin to spec into Hand of Purity and prioritize tanks, resto shaman to heal the mushrooms, resto druid to stay on raid and pay attention to blue mushroom while we are not using it. On Infesting Spores cast all the healers will turn around and heal the green mushroom.


Or, it can be just 'standard' heal what you think is right like on Kargath. 


Hope it helps smile.png

If you'll have further questions, you are welcome to ask.

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [3/7H] OTHER EVENTS
      Saturday is for Mythics/other events. Though we do stuff throughout the week. Most of us have work or school so it depends. We have an event coming up on 10/25 (Saturday) for the release of patch 7.1 Return to Karazhan! WHAT WE HAVE ROOM FOR**
      Shadow Priest Balance Druid Mage Elemental Shaman **In order of what we need the most!!

      About Oops All Baddies: 5/7 Heroic
      <Oops All Baddies> is a newly formed late night raiding guild on Thrall US. Most of us have extensive raiding experience dating back to Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm. At that time we were competing for top US ranking. We don’t expect to be competing on that level anymore, but we are expecting to clear all raiding content while it’s relevant while also maintaining an enjoyable semi-hardcore environment.
      We ask that if you are interested in applying that you keep Three things in mind.
      Show up on time ... and plan on staying until the scheduled raid time is finished. Don't be bad. Have a good time. Progression raiding isn't for everyone. We are looking for players that are willing to wipe a lot and keep a good attitude. Because of our relatively small raiding schedule, we ask everyone to be prepared for fights and execute with tight technical play so that we can make the most out of the time we do have.
      Raid schedule:
      Monday/Wednesday 11:00 pm - 2:00 am EDT (Server Time)
      We are currently recruiting any of the following.
      Ranged & Melee DPS - (High)
      Healers - (High)
      Tanks - (Medium)
      If your class/role is not listed, and you feel you are an exceptional player and can improve our current roster please feel free to apply.
      Loot System:
      We will be using a Master Loot/Loot Council system to fairly distribute gear to where it is needed once mythic progression begins. Right now we are using Personal Loot.
      How to apply:
      Apply at by starting a new topic as well as get into contact with one of our officers by posting here, adding our battle tags, or talk to us in Discord. (See below)
      If you have any questions, feel free to contact the following officers in game or through
      Nartana-Thrall,   Nartana#1454
      Fustt-Thrall,   Fust#1446
      Wadö-Thrall,   Wado#11710 (ö is ALT + 148)

      Hello, everybody! We're Heralds of Strife, a Horde raiding guild on Wyrmrest Accord. We are looking to pick up more players for Emerald Nightmare progression.
      What We're About

      Heralds of Strife is a warm, welcoming community. Our current members range from previous top US 34th raiders to promising newcomers that are hungry to learn and improve. When we are not raiding, we are actively playing many games, from Hearthstone to Overwatch and many others that our guild members have suggested. Heralds of Strife is more than just a raiding guild on World of Warcraft, we are friends who are looking to have fun and get to know each other in our free time. That said, our primary focus will always be to complete the most challenging content that World of Warcraft has to offer during its relevance.

      Current Progression
      2/7 Mythic EN
      7/7 Heroic EN

      Raid Schedule

      Main Raid:
      Saturday - 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST
      Monday - 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST
      Tuesday- 6:30 PM-9:30 PM PST (Alt raid, normal/heroic, as needed)

      Loot System

      We use a Loot Council with defined parameters. This is broken down into several categories:
      Attendance Performance Attitude Biggest Upgrade Recent Wins
      We publicly record attendance and items received (via RCLootCouncil). Our devoted, down-to-earth leadership has the experience and knowledge needed to ensure upgrades are given to the proper players for progression while maintaining a fair, friendly, and entertaining guild atmosphere.

      Trial Period

      Heralds of Strife is a raiding guild primarily. As such, we do have a trial period for new recruits. With that being said, new raiders will have a 2 week trial period. This trial period begins at the start of the first raid upon joining, and ends on the last raid of the 2nd week.
      The three core principles expected of trials:
      Reliability Positivity Adaptability
      Reliability: We expect our trial raiders to show up for raids, on time, and prepared with the basic necessities to do the raid efficiently. We also expect our trials to have some knowledge on encounters, but we are more than willing to help teach and nurture our raiders. Make a commitment with us and we will do our very best to make sure that you're taken care of. We want to get to know you, as you're not just numbers on our spreadsheet. Here in Heralds of Strife,YOU matter.

      Positivity: We encourage our trial raiders, and our members, in general, to have a positive attitude, ranging from casual conversation to raid progression. There will be nights where progression might seem rough, but, pushing forward with a positive mindset are one of the keys to success. C'mon team, we can do this!

      Adaptability: Our leadership takes the opportunity to analyze our performance logs after each raid night, offering those who are lagging behind some constructive assistance in the long-term goal of improving the player. Our team is only as strong as the player next to us, so we want to work together to overcome any obstacle that may be hindering our performance. Our motto is "iron sharpens iron".



      How To Join
