Holy Paladin help

5 posts in this topic

First of all - u have in raid 3 holy pals, its wierd. Its rly hard for pally heal aoe, couse it will consume tons of our mana(i prefer radiance-shock-radiance-light of dawn combo or shock-LoD-radiance-LoD-shock with talant Holy Avanger for mana-efficient aoe heal). Maby u shoud try another build for this setup - with HolyAvanger for more AoE heal, maby you shoud beacon not tanks, but other raid members. Not shure about this, couse its not what pally shoud do, but if your raid setup always 3 pall, u shoud adopt(or find good rdruid+rsham for more great saves and raid-heal). If you ok with mana at last phase, maby you want radiance a bit more often(with shock prock it will give you good aoe heal burst), but dont spam it, ~5-10 cast per battle.


I always have my beacon on top of recount/skada, wonder why u dont(last pull). Also as HolyPal u want mitigate as much damage as u can - divine protection for every arcane nova(dont remember proper name) or for debuff-tick. Didnt saw Master aura from u, u shoud use it at start(for first nova) and then when 2 ogres come and your raid killing small mobs(high raid aoe dmg). Our raid kill them all at same time with totem+ma+priest aoe shield and tranquility from rdruid, if your raid dont kill them this way - use ma when 2-3 mobs will die at same time(you have to track mobs hp).


But for me - your problem 2 other holy pals, couse for us best friend druid or shaman(they have good aoe heal).

You need logs from Heroic for anything feedback wise though as your all massively overgeared for normal and the overheal is minimal [despite the fact that theres only 2 tanks and a max 6 Beacons of Light] which means there was very little incoming damage and you all /danced for most of the fight [1 Cast of holy prism even though its on a 20s cd and its free dps as well as healing]

I've been doing a lot of research and following Holly Pallys that push good numbers. However, I still haven't been able to push the expected/required numbers that I should. Currently, I'm trying to pick up healing with the EF rotation. I'm failing miserably. Oddly, I push the most HPS being Selfless Healer (all forums say no). 


Current rotation with EF:


Holy Shock (every chance) > Spam Holy Light/Flash > EF (on tanks)

I keep Beacons on both tanks.


Problem I have with this rotation is my Holy Light takes forever to get off! I try to focus on haste with stat priority. Here is a link to my toon's armory.

Any and all help with my rotation or thought process while healing will be greatly appreciated!

Key is knowing when to use what and anticipating damage.  Casting a heal so it lands just as damage is taken will help in many ways.


You should use a HR rotation when you have a throughput CD up (wings, Shards of Nothing, hero, etc) and the raid is taking enormous damage (see: earthquakes on Tectus).  It's very good to burst up stacked groups when you have a throughput CD, but is otherwise lackluster due to the mana cost. If the raid is spread, abandon it altogether. 


Much better to regularly single target raid heal with HL, FoL, HS and EF (or WoG) so you're keeping consistent heals on both tanks and also contributing to raid heals.  Let the classes better suited to steady AOE healing handle the little stuff.  They will keep people with enough health to live while you get around to burst them to full.  Naturally, always use Holy Shock on cooldown.  


Lastly, stop raiding with two other Holy Pallies.  Diversity is important in the workplace! laugh.png


Here are some of my logs and my armory:

      I recently switched from DK Tank to Paladin Tank (Similar stat prios) and I was wondering how much haste should I aim for and is Versatility more important than Haste like AskMrRobot says? 
      I raid twice a week but I mainly do M+ Content and I seem to be stuck at M+7 so if you have any advice there I will gladly take it. 
      Here's a link to my Paladin.
      I am in my raid spec currently and I switch my lvl 100 talent to Last Defender when I do M+.
      Any help is appreciated. :)

      Hi guys,
      I'm trying to use an uncommon build: Crit - mastery - versatility - haste - because I thought to max my dps without lose too much survivality.
      These are my stats atm, with 2 different trinket.
      What do you think? am I doing a huge mistake?
      I'm 4/7 HC without problem, but i can't find a good trinket so i'm thinking that maybe i'm going to a wrong direction.

      So the two stat priorities basically either favor Versatility/Haste(for the survivability spec) Or Crit/haste (for the damage build). Im conflicted with what is more beneficial in heroic/mythic raid content. Especially since most trinkets/gear in EN/Nighthold have crit on them. Does anyone know if its more beneficial to start leaning more toward the dps build as you progress through higher level content, or to just keep sticking with being a brick wall with the Survivability build (haste/Vers).

      When I compare the two as far as raw survivability totally taking dps weights out of the equation, the vers/haste build of course gives you a constant damage taken reduction, though im not sure if the versatility has any baring on how much Hand of the Protector (the % based heal) heals for

      Where as the Crit build You dont have that raw survivbility from that versatility, however you do get parry which totally negates physical attacks, and also making the Hand of the Protector heal for more if it crits. Only drawback i see is the fact that now you simply take more damage, but at the same time if you are doing higher tier content shouldnt the healers be able to pick up that slack?

      TL;DR Is the crit build more viable for higher tier content as opposed to the Versatility build due to your raw damage output/parry chance, Or is the Versatility build more viable then the Crit one due to the raw damage taken reduction you get from it.
