Sacred Shield vs Eternal Flame on Holy

2 posts in this topic

l'm a long time holy paladin who rerolled MW a while back because it's impossible for me to learn to play EF. It's a thing of mine, l can't:) So l stuck to SS as much as possible until l just gave up and rerolled.

 

Anyway, was wondering what's the status of this these days? Is SS still usable or is it strictly EF people are voting for?

EF is a direct heal plus hot while SS plus Word of Glory would trigger two GCDs where you could get away with just the one.  WOG also doesn't bring a hot with it.  Really, if you go SS, you should use your holy power mostly on light of dawn rather than WOGs as the mana to heal will be more efficient but then you need 6 people to recieve your light of dawn to make it worthwhile from a mana suck (over holy radiance).  Thus, SS is difficult to use exclusively.  You have to keep it up on two targets, probably your tanks, and use your holy power on light of dawn where you really need to stand amidst 6 people to make it worth your while.  With the last 4 piece tier set, there was a nice EF triggers free Light of Dawn and Light of Dawn triggers free EFs and so yes, most of us were using EF exclusively. The current tier doesn't have that same thing but I haven't seen folks swapping back to SS and WOG. For myself, a single heal that uses holy power for a heal plus hot is awfully nice to have.

 

If you wish to give EF another go, I might suggest:

Get 'tellmewhen' and configure it for buff, eternal flame, show timer and then put in the name of your tanks. 

Build up 5 holy power, EF the maintank/holy shock, that should get you back to 3 and then EF the off tank.  Do this every 30 seconds and if you miss a tick or two building up your 5 holy power, no biggie.  The tanks tend to take constant damage and the beacon will help buff both. 

 

Good luck!

      Hello there,
      I noticed the Icy Veins guide on Holy Pala does not include why we don't care about sudden stats, being new to the spec here's my question:
      Do we not care about haste at all, or is there actually a certain amount of haste you want to have?
      If anyone can help it would be appreciated (:

      I have been doing a lot more raid healing lately as a H Pally and was wondering if there were any tips or tricks that anyone could give to help increase my healing. There is a resto druid that has been beating me on most fights and I don't like it at all!!!
      Some fights I seem to do decent on the logs while others I have a tendency to struggle. The main talents I seem to change a lot are the 5th tier which are Divine Purpose, Holy Avenger, and Holy Prism. I'm not sure which I prefer the most or which will increase my healing output the most. I know I don't take Rule of Law and probably should but might need some insight as to when to be using it.
      The following are links to my logs as well as my armory. Any help whether it is gear, talents, rotations would be extremely helpful.

      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.
      Logs: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-ajub5x3d6lvs3gaw/
      Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Zhorael/simple
      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?
