Holy needs help!

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I am an ilvl 671 Holy Priest who raids 2-3x per week with a progression raiding guild. I switched from disc to holy at the beginning of WoD (seems like a mistake now, right?), so I'm fairly new to holy.

 

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/sargeras/Liery/advanced
(my armory saved to my Shadow set this time, unfortunately- if you want to know what is incorrect, feel free to ask)

 

While I feel like I've really improved over the past weeks, I'm still finding I'm not parsing as high as I think I should. Yes, I know it's more about keeping everyone alive than staring at the meters! I'm just annoyed because I feel as if I'm missing something in my healing.

 

We had another holy priest in the guild, who decided to switch chars and be our off-tank, but while he was healing, he was constantly keeping up with my healing, or doing better, even with a lower ilvl than me. 

 

Here's a Ko'ragh fight from last week I did pretty well on:
https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/YzGxBVrHhWKPjCMd#fight=19&type=healing&source=10

But then from last night:

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/PRWAHKXf4N9Yvaqr#fight=36&type=healing&source=13

*If you want to see more, look up League of Friends-Sargeras on warcraft logs*

(There are a lot of Flash Heals b/c I chose the SoL talent- I was actually having an excess of mana after a while so MB and PW:S seemed less helpful)

 

My question is:

 

What can I do better?

 

In my research I've been wondering:
Should I re-glyph from CoH to BH?

Do I need to start using BH as a main heal?

Should I be trying to switch in between chakras every fight? (I'm almost always in Sanctuary)

 

ANY advice would be awesome. I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks guys!

You wanna switch out your talent Body and soul to Angelic feather (you don't wanna use a weak shield, and its much more movement speed boost) and Surge of light to Power Word: Solace for keeping up the mana ( You can spam it every 10 second and it restore 2% mana every time you use it)

 

For the rotation renew is your main spell and. should always be like 3x more healing done than CoH. Spam it as much as possible on injured party members. It also reset the cd on CoH whenever you spam renew.

 

Spells you wanna use when its avaible

- Prayer of mending every 10 seconds (Heals alot for short amount of mana

- Cascade (Op HoT spell)

- Power Word: Solace (Renew and CoH spam is alot of mana cost, use this everytime its up to maintain mana)

- Sanctuary on stacked group.

- Lightwells

 

For single target you wanna Use Flash heal then -> Normal Heal (Because of Serendipity, reducing the cast time and mana cost) Also change your stance to Chakra:Serenity for the op instant cast spell.

 

You gotta spam way more Renew on koragh. Im a 673 holy priest and i can pull around 45k hps from it.

 

For Glyphs, you wanna switch out Prayer of mending with lightwells. (1 more charge is more heal)

Keep Renew and CoH

 

There are also macro for Power Word: Solace where you can instant target the enemy and cast it, rather than target the enemy then cast it.

 

Divine hymn should also be cast on explosion magic absorb shield debuff.

In the second fight, you were 5 healing compared to the first fight 4 healing. 15 people in fight fight and 17 in second fight, so keep that in mind.

Additionally, damage taken in 2nd logs was much lower and consistent (161k/15=10k : 163k/17=9k)

 

Make sure that your lightwell is out on the pull to help with any out of control fire dot as you renew everyone for that.

A talent to take is going to be Spectral Guise. Use it when Overflowing Energy hits and you can avoid up to 3 hits. 

 

I typically glyph Lightwell, Circle of Healing, and Renew for this fight. CoH helps with shadow, and stronger renew gives a bit better coverage as I'm spamming it usually. 

 

You also should use your Shadowfiend / Mindbender when he runs into the center for more damage / manaback as my group always does lust at that part which gives SF/BM more attacks which is more dps/manaback. I typically run solace as I like to add more damage and get more manaback, but I think in 6.1 Mindbender is getting a manaback buff.

 

Also, in the first log, 7 people (~<50%) didn't healthstone, which could be something to look for on future encounters. Healing Tonics are better than healthstones, so that's also an option.

 

I would get used to using PoM more, as when 6.1 hits it will have 10 charges, T17 14 charges with 2pc bonus. And if you use pvp set you and whomever it heals gain 130(stacking *5) versatility, which is nice but not that big of a game changer as you'll be facing 660 ilvl vs 665/680s.

      ABOUT US
      We Tried is a mythic progression raiding guild formed by an ambitious raid leader seeking like minded, progression oriented players who would work together towards clearing the latest content while it is still considered relevant. After suffering some roster issues, We Tried merged with Procrastination in late December 2016 and together we have fully cleared Emerald Nightmare Mythic within just two weeks.
      OUR PAST ACCOMPLISHMENTS & FUTURE GOALS
      Although we have since slowed down, we are proud ourselves of holding the realm 27th Nythendra Mythic and 24th Elerathe Renferal Mythic kills.

      Like A Boss - 7/7H, 3/3H, 9/10H, & 10/10N Recruiting All Players for our raid group and for Mythics+.
       
      About us:
      Like A Boss was founded during WotLK by a small group of real life friends. We are formerly a 10-man Heroic raiding guild that raided throughout WotLK and went on a hiatus mid-Cataclysm. We are a semi-hardcore guild, and are looking for dedicated members who are able to make majority (if not all) of our scheduled raids or any players interested in joining our Mythics+. Our guild is mostly active at night, anywhere from 5pm PST till about 12am PST (varies). We have a casual-ish atmosphere with a serious desire for progression.
       
      What we are looking for:
      We currently have 15 raiders and we are looking to recruit more members to join our flexible raid roster so that we may progress into Mythic raids (requires 20). At this moment, we are open to all players; we are seeking out tanks, healers, and DPS (prefer ranged). We are open to both new and returning players. As mentioned above, we are also seeking players (any class/spec) that may be interested in joining our Mythics+. We run Mythics+ almost every night. While we prefer a geared player, we value a positive attitude over experience. Any players who are interested and active at the times mentioned above, please contact us. We are also open to players interested in a "filler" type role (can make some raid days but not all).
       
      Additional information and scheduled raids:
      Our raids are currently on Tues/Wed/Sun from 6:30pm PST till 8:30pm PST and we use Curse for our raids. RCLoot Council is a required add-on if you plan to raid with us. We typically try out new recruits for at least a week or two to ensure that it is a good fit for both the recruit as well as our guild. We encourage trials to join us in raids, dungeons, our VOIP, and/or even in other games. Raid spots are not guaranteed due to the flexible raid roster.
       
      Contact:
      If you are interested in our guild or want to know more, please message/add Shells-Bloodscalp or Ryozul#1598. For the horde!

      Personal at the moment. 
       
      Who are we looking for?
      Ranged Dps - High Demand
      Melee Dps - Medium Demand
       
      What do we do outside raiding?
