Literally we do the same thing, When i started out i would do the same thing. Most GOOD raid leaders wont look at the HPS, because it really dosent matter anymore unless tanks are getting one shotted or constantly dying. Really the game for TOC has shifted towards Situational Awareness for not only TOC but all Ulduar Hard modes, Before in BC you could rate a priest based on thier HPS, but blizzard already spent too much time nerfing us so we are more "jack of all trade, master of none" healers now.
Its next to impossible to rate a DISC priest unless the tank dies or your RL uses Guessed Absorbs in recount. I would hope they wouldnt expect a disc priest to raid-heal unless it was a 10 man.
Normally I run shadow 95% of the time, but i often heal pugs and 10 mans and those are some of my observations.
Nov 16th 2009 9:42PM To the guy who said priests are always healers due to the fact that we are "archtyped"
theres a simple explanation
Discipline priests worship Tanks and Arena gods
Holy Priests worship and pray to god for better healing
Shadowpriests worship the devil and are punished by Blizzard by giving us bad DPS
Nov 16th 2009 9:39PM Damn.. we get nerfed before we even get to play buffed
Give us a DISC DPS Spec and stop bloating the shadow tree and give us a nuke so we can all be magelockkins.
Dec 16th 2008 1:40PM My 1st loken heroic kill was with a paladin healer and warrior tank in fury gear.
Its not that hard, just requires people to move together to do it the easy way, the hard way is to spam heal through everything and not move.
Also i think Voidwalker is a top killer because of something having to do with warlocks and the sacrifice mechanic. not 100% sure on that
Nov 12th 2008 8:22AM I took it. Only because i know that there is an extremely small chance that they wouldn't remove it. My priest dosent need the gear i have all hyjal & BT and a little Sunwell gear but the neck and ring were a pretty nice haste boost even for geared people.
I actually grabbed it for a friends priest who just hit 70 2 days ago.
Did i think it would be gone next day? yeah
Did i do it anyways? of course!
There ARE items in the game that dont cost anything.. "Peeling the onion from AV guys outside Alterac Valley comes to mind.
I told my friend not to bother enchanting it or gemming it lol even by itself its better than greens at least.. even if honor gear is a joke
