Dec 21st 2010 6:36PM I also wanted to mention the rapture tracking addon I use. It's called Ingela's Rapture. Very lightweight and wonderful to have.

Dec 21st 2010 6:19PM Great article. I am currently only healing 5-man heroics. I do use renew, although it is no longer specced. It is only used in situations where any deviation from paying attention to my tank will mean death, and someone needs light patching up.

Speaking of tank damage. I NEVER use heal. It doesn't heal enough for tanks IMO. Gheal is my go to heal, and because of that I totally dropped SoS. I am A/A specced, so I do throw out smites when the damage is not that bad. I suppose I could use heal on the dpsers instead of renew. But the cast time is so long and I hate taking my attention away from the tank for that long. I also do not want to have grace change targets. With the amount of health tanks have now, gheal never overheals.

Aug 5th 2010 5:09PM Healbot also tracks very cool priestly things like PoM and its charges, and WS debuff, straight out of the box. It also immediately lets you track all PoM's, so you know not to bounce it off the tank the other priest just did.

It takes all of 2 seconds to fill up a prot paladins mana bar. Maybe the time spent unclicking shields could be spent at the end of a fight drinking. I would even supply the water. It is fine if no one agrees with me, but I do speak from experience tanking on my prot paladin (Nephilimsyco-US Shadowmoon). And would never be so rude or stubborn as to ask a disc to stop bubbling.

May 24th 2010 12:04PM pom is always on cd. we are talking about the failings of the paladin tank that cant control mana, not the failings of the disc priest healing him. pom should always be on cd, no matter what kind of healing priest. as for renew, yea i am DISC, not holy. I do not use renew unless i cannot bubble. Again, not the point of the article, nor the point of my statement. The point of my statement was just because someone asks you to do something, even if they are the tank, if you KNOW their information is incorrect (i.e. stop bubbling me, its killing my mana) it is not your duty or responsibility to just go ahead and do it, just because you were asked. that is perpetuating ignorance, and that is the issue I had with dawns statement. I have played disc long before they were LK favorites. I remember having to defend my spec just to get into ulduar when it was progression. I am not a fan of perpetuating disc myths.
I also feel as if you are misunderstanding. Would I stop bubbling? No. Would I bubble more? No. But I will use my spell where i always was going to use it.

would it kill him to judge wisdom and keep plea up? as you said, runs both ways.

May 24th 2010 11:50AM Funny difference there is, I believe behaving like a douche would be to send this unexperienced tank out in the world thinking its ok to ask a disc to not use their top healing spell. Behaving like a douche is making the next disc deal with his bad information. But to each his own.
