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.

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      We're a guild looking for people who want to have a great time, hang out with each other, laugh and have fun while killing stuff in raids! 

      Guild Name: RaidCat
      Faction: Alliance
      Realm (EU): Silvermoon
      Realm Type: PVE
      Realm Timezone: CEST
      Progression: 9/9HC ToS
      Raid Times: 19:30st - 22:00st
      Raid Schedule: Friday and Monday (additional raids on Wednesday for alts, mythic etc)
      Openings: Range DPS (help us knock those melee off the top of the meters!)

      We raid twice a week in the evenings with optional extra runs appearing as requested. 
      As our raid roster increases Wednesday evening will likely become a mythic progression night. However mythic is not our end goal or focus, but rather something we try to make extra time for. Social member also welcome!

      Looking for: Range DPS (warlock, mage, hunter, shadow priest,) Other applications considered.

      We do everything from Transmog runs, PVP, Mythic+ and whatever else you can think of, with our main focus on raiding.

      We are aiming for a relaxed yet skilled raiding environment where people can fill in for each other, not having to worry about always attending since people can fill in for you, focusing on having fun and improving ourselves with each kill.

      We do care about people following tactics and knowing what they're doing (so do your homework or ask for help!) so we may actually get some stuff done as well, that's why we're looking mainly for experienced raiders that want a more flexible environment (if you are new to raiding you are still welcome)

      We use Discord and you are welcome to join and hang out before deciding to move over.

      Hello! This is Fox from Velocity. We're a DAYTIME Mythic raiding guild on Sargeras. Currently 5/9M, 9/9H ToS. Last tier we ended 7/10M NH in the final two months before the release of ToS. Now we'll be focusing on Mythic ToS progression. After real life claimed a few of our key raiders, we are searching for a few more good and reliable players for our roster, mainly DPS, who can learn the fights quickly and attend our early raid times. 
      Our core team is composed of veteran players who have experience raiding at high-levels (including top US 100 guilds) as well as those who are entirely new to mythic raiding, but fast learners. We aim for a focused, but relaxed environment; upholding a certain level of standards, while still joking and having fun. A fun fact about us - since were a morning guild we actually got two realm 1st's on Heroic. Worldwide our H Goroth kill was 15th and Demonic Inquisition was 6th.
      [A] <Velocity> 5/9M 9/9H (7/10M) - Daytime/Morning raid LFM
      Raid Times: 10am-1pm CST | Tues/Wed/Thurs 
       
        Looking for:
      Currently Need
      Ranged -  Ele Shaman, Warlock, Boomkin, Mage, Other
      Melee - Rogue, Warrior, Monk - Other
      Healer -  DPS with heal offspec
        Requirements: 
      Item Lvl:  930+/-
      Exp:  3/9M (Pref)
      *Specific classes are listed above as preference. However, any class is welcomed! We will consider anyone who is willing to join and can commit to our raid times, we may also make exceptions if you are under the requirements.
       
      Expectations:
      We’re not super hardcore, we like having fun, but we do have high standards; so we expect our raiders to play their class well, come prepared, FOLLOW MECHANICS, have a sense of humor (or not) and adapt quickly. Prior Mythic raiding experience is a plus, though not necessary if you're a fast learner. 
      Due to our niche raid times, we encourage everybody to communicate about attendance via Calendar invites, Discord channels, or through tells with an officer. We are looking for players who are dedicated and realistic with their schedules. It’s important to know who will be available day-by-day so we can make arrangements. This is necessary to avoid setbacks and keep up with progression! We are very understanding when someone needs to post-out. Schedules change, things come up and real life always comes first. All we ask for is a heads up!
        Perks: Feasts, Codex, Spirit Cauldrons, near-unlimited guild repairs, and the occasional gem or enchants. We run alt raids and Mythic+ 15s with each other each week. We're a tight-knit guild, who's always joking around and helping each other out. We also play other games together outside of WoW, like Overwatch, SC2, Heroes, Diablo, Dota2, LoL and whatever else.
      If we sound like a good fit, let us know! Leave a reply here, send us a tell on BNET or in game. Or be old school and send an in-game mail! Thanks for reading, and we hope to hear from you soon! =D
