Holy Paladin - Help?

4 posts in this topic

Hi! happy.png

I’m Divinetoots and my hpal heals are less than stellar. L




(Really have your pick on fights. I’ve ranked less than 30 on all fights for my ilvl – Kromog is where the divide between our other healers and myself is quite noticeable though)


So… before I start. I haven’t healed on paladin since WotLK. So basically brand new…especially since I’ve only been playing it about a week. I was playing an arcane mage, and the guild needed a holy paladin… so I volunteered. We had to gear her up quickly – so my prioritization is weak. I have way too much mastery, not nearly enough crit. I’m working on getting her different gear, but in the meantime… My plea of help is more rotation/spells on BRF output outside of gear optimization.


Couple of things  I know I need to work on:

Uptime of EF – Trying to get in the habit of keeping it rolling. On tanks. And me (or mechanically inept guildies) blink.png 

HS on cd – I feel like I try to do this as often as possible, but I know that’s the first thing that is usually mentioned on the posts I have looked at. I’m working on it 


I don’t know if I’m doing anything else that is fundamentally wrong. Are those 3 things really enough to put me so low on our meters?


I’m only 5-10 ilvls short of everyone else - also... no kicking our disc priest to up my heals isnt an option wink.png 


Kinda feel like Hermione in 1st year broom riding class. I’ve read the material… cant get those numbers to go “up”. Any input is super valuable and greatly appreciated.


Thanks again!

re those 3 things really enough to put me so low on our meters?


HolyShock and EF give you lot of HPS.

I explain a bit why HS is VERY important on CD:

1) Instant cast (you can cast it on move, so whenever you move - press it)

2) Cheap


3) Generate holy power. Hp let you cast EF, wich cost NO mana, have low cast time (like FlashOfLight) and HoT your target.


4) Have x2 crit chance


5) Proc(from crit, but we have x2 crit) fast-cast for holy-light, witch give you more hps, couse HolyLight cast will be faster than FlashOfLight, and for lower mana cost(than FoL).


6) When you use AW(wings), you HS cd lowered by 50% and it raise it crit chance by 20%(10x2), and also AW give you 10% haste wich lower HS cd even more. So you will have like ~80% crit with your gear(20raidbuffed+20AW x 2 couse of HS). So when you press AW your rotation will be HS-HolyLite-HS-HolyLight. If haste not high enough, you just coud cast HolyLight without proc or cast FlashOfLight(or EF).


Now i cheking your BeastMaster fight, and you cast HS 86 times per 9.16 min, it shoud be 120~. Couse of it you miss lot of procs for HolyLight and lot of HolyPower for EF.

I reccomend you set upp weak auras or tellmewhen addons for HS cd chek, it will notify you whenever it off cd.


Also for beastmaster i found - better EF target with dot from Woolf, couse they recive dmg ~30 sec. EF will heal its 100% for this target, and 100% for 2 beacons. Its better than EF tanks. But ofc, if you have HP for DoT and Tanks, you shoud EF both. Also you coud EF with 2HP, couse it will HoT target for lower time, but "tick" will be for same amount of health.


So you understand all right, you need HS, EF more often. But truth is - you forgot press HS lot of times, so as i said before - install some addons for easier track of it. Also most ppl do mistake - they move spell-bar to bottom of screen, so they didnt saw their cd. I dont know how your interface looks like, but it coud be problem.


Also if your guild have money, you coud ask for candle(int+mana use) trinket.

I must say, when I first came to this forum I was having issues making heads or tails of people advice. Then I stumbled across this little gem and I have since gone and read most of Elarions posts, to which I must say, thank you. I have followed your advise and it has landed me in the top, and if not at least second healing spot in my guild on a consistent basis. I was always so down since we don't have a big raid wide AOE healing CD, but really, with the numbers we can put on just through regular heals, I don't care any more. Haha


I won't lie, I'm still trying to get to the level of ranked pallies that are at my current ilvl but I'm just not there yet. :)

      Tues-Thurs, 7:30pm-11:30pm PST
      About our Guild:
      Roadrunners formed at the start of Wrath. Raiding on a short schedule(3 days), we are able to stay competitive by making effective use of our raid time. Loot is handled fairly with a loot council. We aim for a raiding roster of 25 players who are able to maintain a high level of play and attendance. We are making a concerted effort to push our rank into the top 100 US for Legion. We are looking for progression minded players who want to raid on a shorter schedule.
      Our Raiders:
      Roadrunners is full of mature players who love to play WoW. They have a great understanding of the game/class mechanics and are always willing to help new recruits out. Active alts are always encouraged and we even have a few alt raids that run every week. Many of our players are very avid gamers and play other games as well.
      About our Server:
      Kil'jaeden has been around since Vanilla and has always been a high population server. The server is always busy with an active trade chat and auction house. Pug groups for raids and rbgs are constantly forming.
      If you want to apply with Roadrunners please visit and follow the Application guidelines and template.
      Trial Expectations:
      If you are accepted for trial you are expected to be in guild and ready to raid by the next reset. Each player is expected to have their own source of food/flasks. Trial periods typically last 2-4 weeks, during which you will receive plenty of raid time so that your play can be evaluated. We expect you have a working mic and are able to communicate clearly should something happen during an encounter. Being able to take constructive criticism is a must. We are looking for progression minded players who want to raid on a shorter schedule. Class knowledge and prior raid experience is a huge plus.

      Core of Insight is about the oldest raidguild on Shadowsong (Server firsts on all Vanilla raids).
      We would like to raid on Tue/Wed/Thu 20.00-23.30, but at the moment we clear 7/7HC on a wednesday night, and after that we simply lack numbers to venture into Mythic content.
      We are searching for:
      -Healer (Paladin/Shaman)     -DPS (Melee/Ranged).
      You will be filling a roster aiming for mythic content progression, so we expect you to be reliable and on top of ur class. We use Teamspeak 3.
      If you are interrested in killing stuff in a social but focussed environment, or want further info, feel free to contact Tizona#2484 for an ingame chat, or apply on our forum:

      Alright, now that my guild is finally 14/14H, we are now going back to the beginning of the SoO instance for farming. We are a 10 man group and I am paired up with a Disc priest who is really good (Gwenymph - he is active on the priest forums). 
      Okay, here's my question and I hope it makes sense because it may get confusing. 
      This question is about bubbles (Holy Paladin Illuminating healing and other similar spells with other healing classes) and what takes priority. I will drop this down to simple numbers to hopefully give clarity.
      Let's say Healer A casts a 100 HP bubble. Right afterwards Healer B casts a 100 HP bubble. At this moment, there is a 200 HP bubble. Now let's say a 50 HP damage goes out. Which bubble gets the benefit of the heal? Does Healer A because he casted first? Or does Healer B since his was the last heal? This comes down to FIFO (First in First Out) vs LIFO (Last in First out).
      Okay, let's take this a step further. Let's say that Healer A gets the heal credit because he threw the bubble out first. Since his bubble never broke, he still has a 50 HP hanging around. If he casts an additional 50 HP bubble, does his stack with the existing one making it 100 HP again? If another 50 HP damage attack goes out, does Healer A continuously get the heal credit?
      I'm not sure if this has ever been asked before, I'm assuming it has, but I was unable to find it since it can be an odd topic discussion. I was really hoping there was a Healer forum where all classes can collaborate, but since there isn't, I decided to stick this in my home here at the Paladin forums.
      Ready.. set.. discuss!
