Holy Paladin Raid Healing

2 posts in this topic

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.

Your gear seems mostly fine, idk how often do you need mana from cocoon, if you are not using it often its worth switching to something with better stats. Your weapon seems kinda low, and I cant see if you have BiS traits on your relics(shock treatment). You are also a bit behind on AP, 5% more healing from rank 35 is something most healers have now.

Regarding your talent dilemma, Holy Prism will get you bigger numbers in most situations (exceptions being lack of targets it can heal-melee dps, or fights where you really need that extra cooldown from Holy Avenger).

I can see you are mostly going for beacon of the lightbringer, but on the fights where both tanks are taking constant damage (elerethe,cenarius,guarm...), beacon of faith will give you way more hps, just be more careful of your positioning because now people around your beacons no longer benefit from your mastery unless you are there.

I see you are using judgement of light, which is good, especially with your legendary ring, just make sure its always on the boss (or bosses-first and second phase of odyn, adds on Il'gynoth, both dragons if possible...)

Now what seems like the biggest mistake to me: Rule of Law.

I know it seems weak, but that's why it has a short cooldown and 2 charges, and depending on how much mastery you have (and you have enough) it can make a big difference. We dont really care about that extra range, we care about bigger numbers we get on people who are closer to us! Its free extra healing on everyone, not just close to you - those within 15 yards get the most benefit, but people outside of that also get more healing because the range at wich your mastery starts diminishing is also increased

Your worst fight seems to be Cenarius, and that just shows how important Rule of Law is. The room is big and people are more spread. When to use it? ALL THE TIME. As soon as more people except tanks are taking dmg, pop RoL before you toss those few heals. If unexpected burst of raid dmg happens right after it expires, you still have one more charge! And its not like the cooldown is long, you will get it back soon. Are you about to use artifact ability? use RoL with it. Are you popping Avenging Wrath? pop RoL too. Cooldown and 2 charges make it available pretty much every time you want it.

You are also in blue % on elerethe and that is probably because you are not using dual beacons on that. In my exp people are not too spread on that fight, and if I'm in the middle, everyone benefits from my mastery, so I dont really need beacon of lightbringer, and both tanks are taking constant dmg, so my dual beacons heal a lot.

I wrote a lot more than I originally intended, but I hope this helps you a bit. :)

      I have been trying to switch over to a holy pally to help my guild with progression. In under a week I have been able to get my ilvl up to 891. However, my guild is complaining that I don't have the numbers that the other healers do even though I explain to them I only have 2 aoe heals and one of them is on a 3 min cooldown since I use Aura of Sacrifice. I am using Holy Shock on cooldown, but I don't cast it if everyone is as full health, and since I am near the melee, I focus on the tanks and them, but I will still throw a Flash of Light, unless I get the proc from a Holy Shok crit, to ranged and other healers. I have started using Flash over the regular heal just to get them out faster, I have the legendary cloak so I will weave in Light of the Matyr after using a Light of Dawn since it can crit for over 1 mil, but I don't use it that often since I am using Aura of Sacrifice. I am getting tired of them telling me my numbers are low, but unlike some of the dps that tunnels bosses, I actually do mechanics, and I tend to not die as much as other dps and healers. I have been trying to get as much crit as I can for Holy Shock, but not sure if I should even go that route anymore. Any help on rotation would be much appreciated since I have abandoned my 900 warlock to help my guild with mythic progression, but again, they are only focused on numbers and since I only heal tanks and melee and not everyone all the time, my numbers are lower and they can't seem to understand that.

      Location: Horde – US Connected Realms: The Venture Co - Maelstrom - Lightninghoof
      About us:
      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now, for all intents and purposes, a two day raiding guild. We had to cut our total hours spent playing WoW but we still remain just as competitive and result oriented.
      Mandatory reading.
      Basics: ilvl 885+; 40+ points in MS Artifact Weapon; DMG Dealers 400k+ DPS ST.
      Raiding 101: ability to execute/avoid fight mechanics; communicate in English and use a microphone.
      We raid twice a week, a total of 8 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you.
      GRepairs and flasks are provided by GBank; members pitch in mats and/or gold to help out. Guilds preparedness to raid and supply its members with enchants/etc is a team effort. If you are accepted as a member be prepared to do your part.
      Currently we are trying to build up our roster to start Mythics.
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
      Recruitment: Ranged DPS / Heals.
       
      Legion Progression:
      EN 7/7 Normal - 7/7 Heroic - 4/7 Mythic
      ToV 3/3 Normal - 3/3 Heroic
      NH 10/10 Normal - 10/10 Heroic
       
      Contacts:
      Battle.net BTag: Sodium#11394
      Do not send forum PMs, get in touch in-game; likewise do not contact unless you are ready to transfer if accepted for a permanent raid spot.

      General Information
      Players with strong Tank/Heals off-specs that can switch based on guild need are a plus, as are those that can equally play different dps specs.
      We have a laid back atmosphere & attitude and expect our members to have the same mindset. While we want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves, we maximize our raid time and expect members to focus. We expect our members to perform well and theory-craft on their class in order to optimize their performance.
      And, of course, we welcome any players to join our community. Our guild regularly runs Mythic+, Kara, etc., which are open to all guild members whether they are on the raid team or not.
      So if you're looking for the type of guild you remember back in the earlier days of WoW - where the guild is a community, not just a place to park your toons and run stuff by yourself all the time - contact us.
      Best of Luck -
      TeamSupernova

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      Currently seeking
      We are currently looking to bolster our range damage dealer ranks, but we are always on the lookout for skilled players of all classes/specs 
      The classes we are currently recruiting:
         Hunter    Mage    Shadow priest    Elemental shaman    Warlock    Balance druid    Holy paladin    Discipline priest  
      Who are we?
      <Andromeda>  is a 2 nights heroic raiding guild located on Stormrage eu. While the atmosphere in the guild is friendly and social, we do strive and focus on progression during our raid nights. We also run mythic+ during our free evenings. While we have a stable roaster we are looking to expand our raiding team and if we fill our ranks we will not shy away from going into mythic raiding.
      <Andromeda>  was  re-formed for the start of WoD and cleared each raid instance on heroic, and are looking to do the same in Legion. We are composed of a tight-knit group of old friends, most of whom have played together since vanilla or early expansions. A lot of us are former "hardcore" raiders, but are now pursuing a more relaxed and fun approach to raiding and WoW. If you're a former member from the Vanilla/TBC days, then you will probably recognise a few old faces and names! We like to organise other activities within the guild aside from raiding and mythic+, like quiz games on our mumble server where you can win different awards and the occasional IRL meetup. 
      Many of our members have variable work commitments (travel abroad for work, rotas (e.g. doctors/EMTs etc)) and we appreciate this is reflective of the wider community. As such, we do have an understanding if you sometimes can't show up for raid due to work or important exam in your study, but we do expect you to have a high attendance.
      What we offer
      A guild with a friendly and social atmosphere both inside and outside raids while we still keep a sense of professionalism during progression on new bosses. Consistent raid progression Mythic+ runs during our free nights where you are more than welcome to join in on runs for the weekly bounty chest or want to push for higher and higher keystones to see how far we can push it each week. A guild bank that will have you covered if you don't always have time to farm before raids. Different guild events such a wow quizzes where you can win prices from our guildbank Our progress:
      7/7H Emerald Nightmare
      3/3H Trial of Valor
      9/10H Nighthold
      What would be expected of you?
      What we do ask is that our members are familiar with tactics on new bosses, adapt to changes and handle constructive feedback. Have fully gemmed/enchanted their gear, bring flasks and food. However, further to the above, we keep the guildbank stocked with free-of-charge "emergency" consumables to help those with busy schedules that sometimes don't have the time to farm before a raid. 
      Raid times
      Tuesdays 21:00-23:00
      Sundays 20:00-23:00
      (If we are close to a kill and people can stay, we will extend the raid for 30 min)
