Holy Pally: What can I improve?

5 posts in this topic

I imagine you were using a much higher spirit level when EF? I havent checked the logs yet, and probably wont get a chance until tomorrow, but I'm just curious about that answer.

I am sorry. I am terrible at the new warcraft logs. I'm used to using world of logs and uploading to comparebot. Here's some quick glances on the iron juggernaut fight:


-Illuminated Healing had an uptime of 79%.. it needs to be as close to 100%. The beauty of Selfless Healer is there shouldn't be any downtime and can always cast a holy radiance after a Judgement.

-With that said, your Holy Prism is higher than your Holy Radiance. It just seems odd for that spell to be so high. I would think that HR would be ahead of HP. Don't be afraid to cast HR, even if it only has a 1 SH charge. 


Also looking through your CD's.. you aren't using them often. Every fight should have 2-3 casts of Divine Favor and Avenging Wrath.. I'd look into managing those a little better.


Looking at just the Iron Juggernaut fight alone, I see you casted Divine Favor, Avenging Wrath, Holy Avenger and Guardian all around the same time. I'm assuming it was during the high damage stomp period.. but then looking at your overheals on that fight, most spells were upwards of 40%. I'm thinking it would be smarter to stagger your CD's to have a higher continuous throughput. There aren't many fights that require more than 2 CD's used at once anymore.


Lastly try to cast Judgement on CD. It has a 6 sec cooldown. On your 6:08 kill on Iron Juggernaut you only casted it 26 times. Napkin math would show that it could be casted closer to 60 times (obviously that's every time on CD) but remember that Judgement is not only a HP generator but increases your healing on your next spell.


Sorry I can't be of anymore help or if my criticism is staggered. It's late and wanted to give quick help.


Edit: Here's a link to my guilds last iron juggeranaut heroic kill. My names Geoda:


As a quick reference: It was a 5:13 fight. I had 41 Judgements, 95% uptime of Illuminated Healing. 


Again, I understand you're asking for advice and the best way I know how is to compare you to others, such as myself who is also a holy paladin.

This was More than enough to get me started on what to work on. Thank you very much. Yeah ive push myself in to  a bad habit of busting all my cooldowns at one time and its something im breaking up on my keybinds to make it less of a "Go to" mess.


I believe as I get more used to the SH setup i will be judging on cooldown as close as possible. I appreciate the Feedback!

      I will keep this brief as I know folks like to get to the point!
      We are a 7/7M 3/3H raid team looking to add one Resto Shaman or one Holy/Disc Priest to our core raid team. We are on the PVE server Uldum and have been raiding since Vanilla. We raid Tues and Thurs from 8-11 EST and Sunday from 7-11EST. Hit me up in game if this sounds like a match with what you are looking for and we can chat, look at logs, etc!

      We've just managed to clear EN on Normal (we're a casual raiding guild) and whilst we downed every boss, I feel as though my healing is really low and I'm struggling with Mana management.
      My overhealing is really high which gets pointed out on most bosses and whilst I try and watch what I'm doing I just can't seem to reduce it. I think I manage to last at least 2/3's of a boss fight before I start struggling with Mana and my heals start slacking.
      Another issue I find I'm having is the Artifact Path, I've read something which tells me one way and something else that tells me another. Is there a certain path I'm supposed to be taking?
      Also, are my stat weights where they need to be?
      We're planning on starting Heroic next week and i'd appreciate any input that anyone has :)

      I just had a look at the suggested "BiS" list, and considering Mastery is our top stat priority, why are the following rings suggested:
      Mindrend Band + Grubby Silver Ring
      Instead of:
      Mindrend Band + Dreadful Cyclopean Signet ?
      Is it simply to give us some Versatility, considering Grubby Silver Ring is the only item on our suggested BiS list that actually has Versatility? Or is it mainly to provide us with additional Crit, considering Crit is our second secondary stat? But then again, Twice-Warped Azsharan Signet should be a better choice since it has even more Crit, in addition to Haste (which has a greater stat priority than Versatility). Unless Grubby Silver Ring has been chosen specifically just to provide us with some Versatility, that is.
      I know the BiS list is more of a guideline, but I'm genuinely curious about this choice when there seems to be two better options from the same raid tier.
      Am I missing something here?

      About us

      <Moist> is a guild that strives to push progression with a very short raid week. We expect our top raiders to know the insides and outs of their class and come to raid prepared. With a 9 hour raid week we expect everyone to play the best to their ability. Outside of raid nights we have plenty of activities happening ranging from alt runs, mount runs to other games outside of WoW such as League of Legends, HoTs, Hearthstone, and random steam games just to name a few.

      What we expect from you:
      A reasonable level of dedication
      The ability to take criticism
      The ability to learn from your mistakes
      Something, something sense of humor

      What to expect from us:
      Friendly environment
      People to laugh, and have fun with
      Progress oriented raid nights
      Optional non-raid-night activities (mog and mount runs, BGs, Arenas)

      We are currently using Personal Loot. So far everyone really seems to be enjoying it. There is a lot less drama with Personal Loot than the normal Master loot most guilds do.

      If you're interested in learning more about us or applying to the guild please apply at - Click on the Recruitment tab on the menu bar. If you have any questions please feel free to message us in game or post below.

      Okay guys... What the heck is up with the holy paladin legendaries? The only one that is remotely useful is the shoulders, and i cant imagine them giving much either... While most other classes have 2 or 3 super sick ones, we are left with this garbage.. What happened??
