Not new to Icy Veins, just finally made an account, I need some advice I hope that someone has found the answer to the issue that I have run into.biggrin.png 

 

So when I am running heroic dungeons with my GM who is a holy priest (A damn good one at that) and any of the holy priests as well, same problem, we run into a healing issue with together.

 

Me and my healer about 3/4 the way thru the fight have both burned all our CD's, like I am popping CD's as the come up, they are all on CD. I hate this, its not right. 

Last night, wiped alot on Upper black rock spire, priest logs off, then get a new healer, a holy pally, no problems at all, smooth sailing, didn't pop all my CD's constantly as they came up, heal never hit under 75% on the last boss of UBS .

 

Is there something I can do that will work with him, and is there anything he can do that will help me heal?

 

He has noticed, once I get fully healed, he can't get my shield up hardly at all, its reduced to nearly nothing. At the mean time, I am getting smashed, popping CD's, 30 seconds later, I am setting at 5% health trying everything I can to get my rune tap up high enough to get a new CD open. 

 

I got Gold Tank in Proving grounds at just ilvl 602(It scales to gear after ilvl 610) I had great progression last xpac, I understand my class in and out, I keep going back to the drawing board, I am starting to doubt myself, it sucks, I need an answer. sleep.png We will be raiding in the same group, there will be other healers in the 20, but my guild has 3 DK tanks and a few priests (won't be in the same raid), we need to figure this out, we are stumped and need some help.  unsure.png 

 

 

I am currently ilvl 616, no enchants or gems, I still have my darn SoO mythic pants (just can't get them replaced), first ring of the legendary, I have my talents and rotation down to Icy Veins.

I guess this will come down to how the priest is healing.

 

I personally was healing Heroic Dungeons at 608ilvl with a guardian druid and we had a couple of wipes but nothing serious.

 

Then i ran some with one of our guild dks tanking in their off spec and it was easy mode.

 

Dk's have by far been the easiest tanks to heal for me so far. Even in molten core the pally and druid got wrecked and the 2 Dks were far easier to manage.

 

Priests have been hit hard with the gear scaling and changes to the healing styles so many are having problems transitioning.

 

Without some logs or a general priority of what the healer is doing its going to be hard to give any guidance. Maybe send them over to the priest forums for a look and discussion.

      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?

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      I'm not quite sure what's going on, but for some reason, I have yet to pull ANY Priest cards out of the thirty or so packs of KFT that I've opened so far. The only KFT Priest card that I have at all is Shadowreaper Anduin, which I got for completing the prologue. It's not that I'm getting bad pulls in general - I've pulled multiple legendaries already, and have lots of cards for every other class.
      I suspect that I'm just having an odd run of luck, but it does seem to be a bit anomalous. What -are- the chances of not getting any cards from a particular class out of thirty packs?
