I'd recently had some issues with healing in holy due to spell priorities, and it's going much better. My disc healing is still much lower than it should be with my current gear, and I think that my spell selection and synergy tracking is to blame. My raid leader wants me to go disc most of the time (unless we need to have a spriest go disc, or possibly for specific fights).
Comparing my Madness attempt (I went holy the next night for the kill): http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/cqdz ... 741&e=7586 with a top atonement parse: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/m4r2 ... 98&e=10792 I need a lot more uptime on PoM/PoH. I think I was focusing a bit too much on my archangel stacks and PW:S, though *usually* during periods with lower damage going out. Zuljin's obviously just using enough PW:S to maintain Rapture (his uptime and mana returns were very similar to mine), and I do tend to have mana problems if I try to PW:S blanket for heavy incoming damage. Obviously it's impossible to blanket *everyone* in 25-man anyway, but it is a way to get a lot of heals/absorbs out very quickly.
PW:S/Penance (target swap to lowest person) GHeal/(target swap)InnerWill/GHeal seems like the most efficient way to get a lot of big heals out fast, keep Grace up, and take advantage of Borrowed Time, but often the people taking the most damage are the DPS rather than the tanks. My overall Grace uptime was 100% but it was *sucky* on the tanks. :(
From what I understand, you can "pump up" your Divine Aegis" before the pull with holy nova or some such, as well as penancing the tank for grace. I know that each critical direct heal or PoH will refresh the time on it and make it stronger. Is there a good way to track how strong the shield is, and how long it will last? What's a realistic uptime to aim for? What are your tricks for getting the most out of it?
Several people have recommended macroing Inner Focus into GHeal, but if I do that, I can't use the same button to just Gheal someone else who needs it before IW comes off cooldown. So, I tend to forget to use that button, and it doesn't show the cooldown timer the way the IF button does. Any suggestions?
I have my Healbot showing my counter for PW:S, but if there are several buffs up on the tank at the same time, it gets really cluttered and hard to track (and sometimes doesn't show up at all, even though if I target them they have it). I can set up HealBot to track ES and tell me if it falls off the tanks, but I can't figure out how to make it or Power Auras warn me when either tank doesn't have it. I'm considering swapping to Vuhdo, is there an easy way to track it using that? How about tracking Grace on the tanks?
For stat prorities, I've been using the 1290 haste breakpoint on gear (with 3/3 Veiled Shadows) for 2.1s PoH cast time in Holy, but I don't have Veiled Shadows in Disc. Would you recommend respeccing to pick it up, or taking the talent out of my Holy spec and just going for 1674 haste to get the breakpoint without the talent? My spirit seems too high since I picked up a few new pieces of gear this week, but I mana was still quite tight (in both disc and holy) on last platform on madness. I went into P2 with mana nearly topped off, but just blew through it. We're planning to move into 25-man heroics next week if that makes a difference. I've been looking at some of the armories of top disc and holy priests (off of WoL), but there isn't a consistent approach, and I know it depends on healing style. I know that my spell usage right now isn't optimal, so I don't want to just cater to it, but to where I should be heading. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/t ... ima/simple
