715 Holy Pally - Very Low Parses (~40-45k hps)

4 posts in this topic

Hey All,


Hoping to get some feedback on my logs below.  I'm well geared, experienced, and overall a good player, however my numbers just aren't where i expect them to be in comparison with other holy pally's i've run with.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!


Logs of most recent Heroic Iskar - Archie clear:

What I can see immediately from looking at your armory is the fact that you don't have the correct trinket set-up. For maximum efficiency you want to get your class trinket as well as the Demonic Phylactery. Once you get that combo of trinkets, you can also look to drop your spirit down to around 1.2k as the mana cost reduction of the DP allows you to instead focus on more Crit / Haste / Mastery. By the looks of your logs, your healing from Holy Light and Eternal Flame is extremely low and as these are two of your three main heals, you'll need to make sure you're fully utilizing Holy Shock, Holy Light, and Eternal Flame. This, however, is prone to getting better once you get your class trinket, as that increases the healing done by your Flash of Light or Holy Light by 88% for 6 seconds after casting Holy Shock. Your Beacon of Light healing seems fine which means you're probably keeping a high up-time on your 4 set bonus. If that is the case, then you definitely want to make sure to use Eternal Flame (3 Holy Power) more frequently as it ticks a lot with that amount of Haste (4-set 4 stacks + your Haste prior to those extra 8%). Once you get the class trinket you can also cut down on Flash of Light usage and instead rely more on preemptive healing as opposed to "panicky" healing where you spam Flash of Light to get people back to full HP. 


Overall I think that once you get the gear you're meant to have, you will probably quickly start seeing the results you're wishing for, as some gear (especially trinkets) sadly mean so incredibly much in this game, that not having them cripples you to unbelievable lengths. 


For reference, here is my Holy Paladin:


Random Logs:


I have re-rolled to a Hunter now though, so my gear has been falling off a bit lately, but we do have another Holy Paladin in there who can you also look at to see some of the up-times of EF as well as the low amount of usage of Flash of Light compared to Holy Shock + Holy Light combo. 


I hope this helps!

You also have to take into consideration talent switching. I'm nowhere near the best Holy Pally but I excel at some fights due to switching out some talents. For the main part I take Selfless healer. Especially for fights like Iron Reaver/Council/Tyrant/Fel Lord/Archimonde. Taking Selfless healer allows me to skip using Demonic Phylactery. Taking sefless healer is easier on mana, you don't need that much haste due to not using eternal flame and it creates the flash of light haste buff. I just use judgment/holy shock/flash of light on repeat while throwing in Holy prism on Cd or timed aoe damage and Word of glory or Light of Dawn when capped at 5 or 3 and I top charts. I heal 120+ on Tyrant Velhari alone and ranked in the top 1000 on a couple of fights. My parses could be better and some fights I'm lackluster in but for the most part I do pretty well.

Just gotta say that trinkets are definitely a fight dependent thing. Don't be going around thinking two trinkets are best for all fights. Picking up the leech trinket for heavy aoe fights over the class trinket is a decent plan. Personally, I don't run the Phylactery, cuz I never run out of mana, and don't have spirit on a few spirit slots already. I personally don't think that trinket is good for paladins, since 15-20% of our casts actually dont use mana to begin with.


Quick math shows that it's the equivalent of 775 spirit (heroic trinket) on fights where you're casting consistently. It's really solid, basically 327 int 327 haste 775 spirit on heroic. I personally run the kilrogg trinket most of the time, because combining it with wings does basically make me a godsend every 1.5minutes. I can also split them up and have a large healing buff for 50% uptime. (30s wings 15s trinket, 90s CD on each)


Basically, use what youre comfortable with and what works with your raid. The Phylactery is by far better for those who aren't good at managing CDs/Mana to heal and be the clutch healer on your team, but other trinkets -can- fit into your setup. I also find the leech trinket to be underrated, as it does about 20% healing in my experience.

      Good morning Icy Veins,
      I've been watching some videos to improve my UI from a resto druid perspective. I found this video from Method vs Xavius from the POV of their holy paladin. This video shows a lot of different addons, but i'm mainly curious about the addon which is used for the raid frames and on click healing.
      My assuption this is Vudho or Healbot in combination with Elvui?, but i would like to have your feedback. This friday i'll be starting to set up my UI so any help you guys can provide me would be perfect.
      My main goal is to have a almost standard single player UI, but a more slick and healer friendly UI for mythic + and Raiding.
      Thank you :)
      PS. If you have any video's/screens of your own UI (resto druid prefered)  i'm happy to copy it over ;)

      Hey guys, 
      why is haste listed as the #1 off-stat after int for mythic+ healing. Is it because they expect us to fistweave in those dungeons?

      Hi guys,
      Since the 7.0 and the new talent Deluge, I try to see who is in my rain, and who is not.
      For this purpose, it would be veeeeery helpfull if vuhdo could show me who's in.
      But the difficulty here is that healing rain don't apply a buff on the ally healed.
      Is there an advanced user of vuhdo here that can help me? I struggle with it since few days. :(
      Thank you !

      This is a guide for Overwatch mechanics that might be useful. It will constantly be updated, with new info and additions. If you have any suggestions/corrections to enrich the topic, feel free to share them below.
      Shields & Barriers
      Shields are a vital part in Overwatch as they can protect yourself and your allies from enemy fire. But do they always protect you?
      The answer is no. Melee attacks as well as Reinhardt's Rocket Hammer, Torbjörn's Forge Hammer and Symmetra's Energy Ball ignore enemy shields. Additionally, Winston's Tesla Cannon will hit both the shield and the enemy behind it.

      Zarya's barriers grant 200 barrier to herself or an ally for 2 seconds and they are not visible on the health bar whatsoever. On the other hand, Lúcio's ultimate ability (Sound Barrier) grants 500 barrier to himself and allies within a 30 meter range, which immediately begins decaying 83 points per second until empty (6 seconds total duration), and it is visible on the health bar.
      Barriers don't reduce damage, don't regenerate, and can't be healed. Shields don't reduce damage , but regenerate 20.5 points per second after you have taken no damage for 3 seconds.
      Bastion, Reinhardt, Winston, and D.Va have armor by default. Torbjörn can drop armor packs which grant 75 armor to any ally that picks it up, He can also gain 300 armor for 12 seconds when using his ultimate ability (Molten Core), while Bastion gains 150 armor for 8 seconds when using his own ultimate ability (Configuration: Tank).
      Whenever armor takes damage, it reduces the damage by half, but not by more than 5 damage per individual hit. Critical hits (Headshots) double damage before any armor reduction. For instance, Widowmaker's headshot would deal 295 damage (120 x 2.5 = 300 - 5 = 295).
      Damage Boost
      Certain abilities in Overwatch can boost a character's damage output either by boosting their own  actual damage or by amplifying the damage the enemy will take. Those abilities are Mercy's Caduceus Staff and Zenyatta's Orb of Discord, respectively. Mercy's ability will increase an ally's damage for 30% while Zenyatta's Orb will amplify the damage your enemy will take by 50%.
      When combined, the bonuses are additive, not multiplicative, meaning that utilising both will increase your damage by 80%. Finally, damage boosts do not stack, so in other words, getting boosted by two Mercies will still give you just 30%.
      Headshots (Critical Hits)
      Headshots can be game-changing as they can finish off your opponents much easier and give your team more space to focus on targets and handle a situation. Headshots have a x2 multiplier meaning that an 100 damage body shot will translate into a 200 damage hit if it was a headshot. Melee attacks and auto-aim abilities like Symmetra's Photon Projector or Winston's Tesla Cannon, cannot crit. The only exception to the headshot multiplier applies to Widowmaker, as she has a x2.5 headshot multiplier, meaning an 120 damage body shot will deal 300 headshot damage, instead of 240.
      Heroes Health & Hit Points
      Each hero in Overwatch has a different Health Pool and a sum of Hit Points, and you can see each of them below:
      600 Health Heroes: Roadhog 300 Health Heroes: Reinhardt 400 Health Heroes: Winston 250 Health Heroes: Reaper, Mei 200 Health Heroes: Genji, McCree, Pharah, Soldier: 76, Hanzo, Junkrat, Torbjörn, Widowmaker, Lúcio, Mercy, Bastion, Zarya 150 Health Heroes: Tracer, D.Va Pilot 100 Health Heroes: D.Va Mech, Symmetra 50 Health Heroes: Zenyatta These numbers might seem strange to you, and you would be right as you are used to see the combined hit points. Of course Zenyatta doesn't have only 50 points to shoot him at. The following heroes have armor or shield additions to their basic health points.

      Bastion and Winston have an added 100 points Armor, Reinhardt has a 200 points one and D.Va Mech a respectful 400 points Armor.
      Zarya has 200 added points of Shield while Symmetra and Zenyatta have an 100 points one.
      Healing & Health Packs
      In every map you can find various Health Packs. The small ones will heal for 75 health while the big ones will heal for 250 health, practically making them a full heal for almost every hero. The small packs have a respawn rate of 10 seconds while the big ones have a 15 second respawn window.
      When you receive healing, it applies in a specific order to each type of hit points until that type is full. The order stands as below:
      Health Armor (Not the ability-granted armor) Shields
      Junkrat's traps, his ultimate ability (RIP-Tire) and Torbjorn's Turret can be healed if they are placed over health packs, but they can't be healed in any other way.
      Lúcio's Crossfade, when toggled to healing mode, passively heals allies and himself within 30 meters (when in sight), for 12.5 hit points per second, or 40 hit points per second during Amp It Up (which lasts 3 seconds). Mercy's Caduceus Staff heals an ally for 50 hit points per second in a range of 15 meters. Soldier: 76's Biotic Field heals himself and allies within 5 meters for 40 hit points per second. Zenyatta's Orb of Harmony heals the targeted ally for 30 hit points per second. His ultimate ability (Transcendence) heals all allies, as well as himself, within 10 meters for 130 hit points per second for 6 seconds. In maps including a payload, the payload will heal heroes on the attacking team for 10 hit points per second while they are within a 5 meter range (the same distance required to actually move the payload forward). Last but not least, the Spawn Room will heal you for a vast 400 hit points per second.
