Holy Priest help!

4 posts in this topic

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'm no further along than you for progression so I'm no Mythic Pro Expert but there's a couple of things I noticed that seem similar to the issues I was having.

CoH is a badass spell, I love it too and I hate giving it up but....it was pointed out to me elsewhere on this forum that it's an expensive spell and that will really add up over the course of a fight.  It looks like you're doing way more Raid healing than Tank, using Prayer of Healing quite a bit.  If that's the case then Apotheosis really is the way to go, if you can Apoth 2-3 times over the course of a fight that'll add up to a ton more FREE Sanctify casts. 

This one's a toss up since you seem to use FH way less than I do (I do a lot of Tank healing) but I intelligently stagger/swap and chase my FH casts around to maximize use of the lvl15 Talent Trail of Light.  It's especially good on fights with constant, regular, and predictable Tank swapping mechanics like Ursoc or the Nightmare Horror on Il'gynoth.  I'm actually finishing fights with more mana that way vs using Enlightenment, but again that's situational based off your role in the Raid.

Hard to say with you but I also feel like a LOT of Holy Priests aren't using Divine Hymn enough.  Look at how long your fights last, and if they're long enough you might be able to use Hymn 2, 3, hell maybe even 4 times in a fight depending on how early your initial use is.  If you're only using it once or twice and even then only as a **OH SHIT THE RAID"S ABOUT TO DIE** then I say you're not getting your money's worth out of it.  It's a hell of a play maker and it tops the raid off for way less mana than a shit ton of PoH casts.

Lastly, you seem concerned about your ouput and if I'm looking at your logs right then you and Klott are doing the lion's share of the work.  Maybe the other healers need to step it up a notch, I can sure tell the difference in my mana bar when the other healers are lacking.

I'm not gonna get into Artifacts besides the fact that the generally recommended path is to climb the right side, skip Renew the Faith to race to Blessing of T'uure and then go down the left side to get to Light of T'uure.  After having gotten to Blessing of T'uure I feel underwhelmed by it, a proc off of a proc is just.....meh.

Hopefully one of the guide experts chimes in but in the meantime I hope my personal perspective helps a bit.

Appreciate the feedback on this!

Managed to get Nythendra down on heroic and my overhealing and HPS seemed a lot better, going to see how I do overall on Thursday when we clear Normal again. I think my main issue is going to be Il'gynoth but I'll see how I get on.

Thanks again :)

way op for when u rolling dem flash heals on entire raid is amalgam. i think i regen at most like 400k in a figth mythic nythendra. proccs from trail of ligth secondary heal. prety nuts. but should be healing different targets all the time. but yes. drop coh. u do 1 buffed poh it does way more so its of no use really.  everyone do less healing in normal cause dmg is low. ppl say piety is bad i dont know i got the free flash heals talent. with amalgam again it means u gain mana and free heals ontop of it. seems to be enough with using apotheosis when its needed i do 2x poh with apotheosis and its off cd so, do got the ligth of the naaru. also "saves" mana by letting u cast sanctify/serenity earlier and increase healing ofc, i dont cast anything else when there is alot of raidwide dmg like poh/sanct/serenity cause it dont heal as much. i do use enlightenment if i know i will be doing alot of raid healing like xav or ursoc f.ex. but yeah, u save mana using hymn and use apoethesis to save mana on serenity and sanctify so i try to use as early as i can so i can use twice. got the cocon trinket from renferal seems prety dank compared to amalgam despite lower ilvl if u use it wrong u get fucked cuz u cant do anything for 10 sec lol and the regen is prety bad compared to amalgam wich dont require sleeping for 10 secs at a time. but using it atm anyway, guess it's better for when u use enlightenment and dont use too much flash heals. and also important to remeber mana depends on how much dps your raid have and how much dmg they take from things that are possible to avoid ++ but its kinda normal to feel little short on mana until ppl start getting better gear and all.

      I am glad I'm watching Chump because not only he's an inspiration but also because I was browsing through the standard priest deck lists provided here and even though it's a long list they are all pretty much the same (many of them no fun anymore, at least to me and def. no fun to play against) and I get the feeling lately Icy Veins tries to provide the most expensive decks only. No doubt they are effective and successful but as I said, getting bored and it's kind of bad for every new player visiting this page and just seeing (s)he has to play longer than some cards take to rotate out of standard to acquire a viable deck. 
      So, I was wondering why are the no decks like the following in this list, something wrong with adding such decks? Of course you can't add every possible deck type/variation but with a dozen Highlander and Dragon priest decks already being in this list there should be room for at least one or two others.
      All credit goes to Chump for this deck, I'm just posting it as well as his first video with it.
      Budget Aggro Priest: Total dust cost 1600.
      With all of the cards being basic, common or rare we can assume most players have most of the cards maybe a few to craft. Pretty cheap imo.
      2x Emerald Reaver 2x Northshire Cleric 2x Potion of Madness 2x Power Word: Shield 2x Voodoo Doctor 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Radiant Elemental 2x Shadow Ascendant 1x Deathspeaker 2x Happy Ghoul 2x Kabal Talonpriest 2x Auchenai Soulpriest 2x Keening Banshee 1x Darkscale Healer 2x Sunborne Val'kyr 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAa0GAsYEmssCDoQB7QHlBPIMtbsC8LsC2MEC3cIC5MICyMsCzswCn84Cps4ClegCAA==
      He was playing 2 version of this deck with the other being a bit more expensive using Genzo, the Shark and Leeroy Jenkins instead of the 2 Auchenai Soulpriest.

      What stat %s should we aim for?
    • By AcidSapphire
      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!

      As the title suggests - I think it's time that we discuss our Beacon(s) and their place in the current 'meta'.
      Most of you will probably not agree with me but I feel like there's a very limited impact to beacon currently. When Legion was first announced I was thrilled at the prospect of tanks losing the 'I am a wall of iron....' and becoming more dependent on their healers again. And I say this despite playing a Guardian Druid for most of WoD with raiding Mythic throughout the expansion.
      Once more it was going to be down to your healers to keep you level and you would focus primarily on smoothing out the damage intake while still picking up adds, tank swaps, controlling pace, positioning etc. (the list goes on and on obviously!). Healing yourself was no longer to be your responsibility!
      Currently it feels like we've moved too far away from that again. Now this - of course, being an issue not only for paladins but an overall issue with the current state of tanking.
      But I digress.... The reason why I feel Beacon needs to be reworked slightly is because currently beacon is having a very minor effective healing vs the overhealing it 'provides'. I've heard several arguments for this. Some feel that 'it is free overhealing so why should we care?' but I lean to the side of: What is the point of having a spell, which is undoubtedly one of our core abilities, that have such a low impact?
      I feel like some tuning is in order for it. Maybe rework what it actually does? Tuning overall healing throughput of tanks?
      Rework our mastery to be more interactive with throughput in relation to beacons?
      I can't really offer any substantial solutions to the problem but I still feel that it is, in fact, a problem.
      What are your thoughts on this? Has Blizzard dug themselves into a hole again with the current state of tanking or could a rework of the Beacon sort the issue so that it feels that Holy Paladins are once more the Go-To 'Tank Healer' with a more impactful kit?
