Raid Rx: Blackwing Descent healing playbook {WoW}

The Light and How to Swing It: Tackling AoE paladin heals {WoW}

Feb 21st 2011 5:34AM I wish you had elaborated more on your thoughts on Light of Dawn. From what little you did write, it seems as though you feel it is very lackluster and I couldn't agree more. My opinion is that so long as Light of Dawn remains on the Holy Power resource system, it is incapable of filling the void in our AoE healing. Having to be in "fair" competition with Word of Glory, is really holding back what this ability needs to be for us.

Light of Dawn needs to be stronger in addition to having a shorter, more consistent CD. We just always seem to be playing the waiting game when it comes to our AoE healing, waiting for Holy Radiance to come off CD or waiting for 3 Holy Power to fire off Light of Dawn. Because of this we end up being forced into casting single target heals 90% of the time, including during high intensity AoE phases. I personally don't find that to be a ton of fun and would very much like to have something, anything, *one thing*, that I could essentially spam for sustained moderate AoE healing throughput ... a la chain heal, healing rain, wild growth, or prayer of healing. To spam it would obviously have to be costly on your mana pool, but I feel that do we need the option to handle situations or phases that demand it.

Upcoming healer changes {WoW}

Feb 16th 2011 4:40PM ... and the era of Shaman stacking is once again upon us. who needs a mana bar when you can rotate 6 mana tides with 6 healers that also sustain top-end throughput ...

Raid Rx: No healing assignments?! {WoW}

Feb 11th 2011 5:23PM The healing classes are much better balanced now. All healing classes can both tank heal and raid heal with relatively equal efficiency. I couldn't tell you exactly which one is the "best" at any given role without playing each class and comparing mana efficiency. Each healers toolkit can also be drastically more or less effective depending on the specific encounter and the way the damage is received.
