Holy Paladin PvE Guide Question(s)

Hello, I was noticing in the "Holy Paladin PvE Guide: Rotation, Cooldowns, and Abilities" guide under the heading "1.1. Additional Actions To Perform" it said "Try to melee the boss whenever possible in order to regenerate as much mana as possible from Seal of Insight." This seemed odd to me. I know we wear plate armour but should we really be up front meleeing a boss?

As from a Holy perspective, you should ALWAYS melee a boss whenever you can. This is because that your Seal gives you a chance to gain mana, which is about 1k mana. That's a LOT of mana, and you should get it whenever you are not healing or while you have Divine Plea active.

Interesting, I never thought that would be something I would be doing as a healer. I'll start doing this whenever I can, thanks.

Crixalis is correct, you should be in melee range whenever you can (meaning, whenever fight mechanics do not require you to be elsewhere) so that you can autoattack the boss.

The mana gain benefit of spell_holy_healingaura.jpgSeal of Insight is apparent from its tooltip :)

Let us know if you have any other questions about the guide or any class in general.

Mana returns aside, crusader strike is an excellent, cheap way to gain holy power when you don't need holy radiance (early on madness, ultraxion, yorsahj, et al).

Yep, it certainly is awesome. It's mentioned in our guide, too :P

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
