There is a space to use Hymn of Hope on Baleroc: use it IMMEDIATELY after you switch off a tank when there are no crystals down. There is just enough time between crystals landing to fit one in, and it doesn't overly matter if you don't instantly heal a dps when they have one or two stacks (hopefully).Disclaimer: Baleroc 10N, 3 healers, 2+2 dps crystal strategy, one healer on tanks, no healing overlap needed, the healer after you switches to tanks as soon as the crystals disappear. Other strategies may still work with hymn of hope in this manner but I haven't tested them.

In 10m, if you are rotating healers between tanks/shards you are doing it the hard way. Have two healers on tanks and one on shards. On the first shard have the tank healers spam one person through the whole first shard. This person will need lots of cool downs to keep alive (S. Priest, Lok, DK, Druid works well.) While the tank healers are building insane stacks through the entire first shard, the shard healer is healing the tanks. After the first shard goes down the two shard healers become the tank healers (80+ stacks each) and the tank healer becomes the shard healer for the rest of the fight. Rotate 2/3 DPS on every other shard and win.

You can actually do Baleroc 10 N with 2 healers easily. 1 on shard, 1 on tanks and rotate on each crystal.If your'e discipline, get a bloodlust or PI yourself, then use penance at around 9 stacks. You can even spam flash heal if you want to use shadowfiend early to get you back to full. If you have a shadow priest to soak up a whole shard by them self with dispersion then even better. Once both healers have some stacks, keeping the tanks up is trivial.One of the best things about power word: shield is that you can soak up a whole decimation blade with it, and the off tank (probably a DPS) can take two without having to even think about it.As for which spec is better, you're basically tank healing the entire fight whether you're healing tanks or shards.

Funny, people always tell us that the only way we found to reliably work some bosses is "the hard way". I'm afraid that this is only "the hard way" for you (even if "you" encompasses the rest of the playerbase), not for us.All I wanted was to challenge the assumption that you couldn't use Hymn of Hope on this fight.
