Spiritual Guidance: Further thoughts on priest healing in Pandaria {WoW}

Nov 15th 2011 6:51AM I think Monks have the potential to be the DeathKnight of WOTLK; but in the bad way. DeathKnights throughout much of WOTLK were just mash buttons and do decent DPS (the good/great DKs knew how tomanage runes). The best part of being a healer is logical game play; knowing who to heal whent to heal and how to time for damage. I know its speculation, and a bit of doomsaying to assume Monks will be the roflfaceroll class in Mists... but, unless Blizzard executes it well, we could see just that.

The Light and How to Swing It: Synergizing with priests {WoW}

Sep 11th 2011 11:47PM To be clear... great article. Just wanted to clear up some stuff that me with my big mouth had to comment on. :-D

The Light and How to Swing It: Synergizing with priests {WoW}

Sep 11th 2011 11:32PM yeah, back in Naxx2.0/Ulduar it was "massive". then it was nerfed.

TOC/ICC it was still strong, even post nerf. However after POH changes, and other healing changes in Cata it really was only good for buffing Tranq. :-(

Sep 11th 2011 11:14PM "Divine Hymn is the priest's ultimate AOE healing weapon. While channeling DH, they'll be hitting the raid with a massive amount of healing."

I understand "massive" is subjective, however, DH by a Disc Priest is a net loss of output vs POH spam. Holy is only marginally better. Dh is really only all that useful if you want to buff the output of other healers, while sacrificing some of your own personal output. yes, it is a smart heal... however in situations where youd use it, everyone needs healing and POH is better for that.

Cataclysm Beta: Healing priest talents and abilities {WoW}

Aug 15th 2010 7:19AM Dawn, you are 'locked in' your chakra state once you active and 'consume' the buff. (think of it like inner focus consumption). However at only a 1 minute CD you get to use it again.... right now (bug or not?) you could keep up Chakra Renew easily for over a minute via State of Mind, use Chakra again when the CD is up and start a new Chakra state.. theoretically having two Chakra States active at once. .... now is that a bug or not (IMO- likely). BUt with a 60 second CD (timer starts as soon as you consume it) you'll be able to enter a Chakra state fairly regularly.

Spiritual Guidance: Triage {WoW}

Apr 27th 2010 7:40AM Oh, and I guess to question --- when you say GS do you mean that GS mod or wowheroes or similar. I'm not a GS junkie, but I know that you can get a very different result from the mod, to wow-heroes.com, to wtfismygearscore.com.

IDK, just putting that out there.

Spiritual Guidance: Triage {WoW}

Apr 27th 2010 7:38AM I'm most concerned about how pre-emptive healing is going to be affected by Blizzards new 'we dont want you spamming heals' mantra--- particularly for Disc Priests... part of what a Disc priest does is pre-emptive shields. It will take a good deal of conditioning for Disco's to get out of this whole 'spam the raid!!!!' mindset, unless they know for a fact that their mana wont be wasted for those shields--- given the new FSR/In Combat out of Combat regen system.

We've seen this before from Vanilla to BC with regen model changes, to BC to BC, BC to wrath etc... we'll adjust, it should be interesting to see how it all pans out though.
