Healing and Earth Shield notes from the BloodFurnace run

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 1:44 pm

Yeah, website like this yeah, here this isn’t of any interest to anyone but me.

EarthShield on the warrior accounted for 115k heals averaging 416 heal per go.

Direct heals on the warrior from Flowersz accounted for 260k heals. So about 1/3 of the heals on our tank were from Earth Shield. I thought he was easier to keep up. Respect to the Wrath of Air + Vengence of the Illidari trinket combo.

The warrior did chug 3 healing pots though, which is a shame.

On the Earth Shield front, I see that it was either healing for 350, 380, 415, or 445. In my normal gear, unbuffed it heals for about 240.

  • 240 – plain with normal fighting kit
  • 350 – plain with healing gear
  • 380 – healing gear + Wrath of Air
  • 415 – healing gear + Vengence
  • 445 – healing gear + Vengence + Wrath of Air

So a fully buffed earth shield can contribute 4.4k of healing over 10 charges, that’s worth almost 2 full Healing Waves, or 3 Lesser Healing waves or 4 chain heals in my healing uniform, usually with Wrath of Air deployed. I’m certainly going to make this spell rotation part of my normal pre-pull practice.

A breakdown of my healing would be around 580k direct, 115k Earth Shield and 100k healing stream. So as is usual with Shaman a reasonable amount of the quality output (30%) comes from indirect sources, in this case Earth Shield and Healing Stream.

This shows that Healing Stream contributes significantly. The only issue is that healing stream means no mana spring. This isn’t a problem if there are 2 shaman since I can rely on the DPS shaman to lay a mana spring totem, it is more of a worry if I’m the only shaman present.

The group used 5 healing pots in all, 3 on the tank, and 2 on the off tank. The hunters didn’t use any at all!

The death list:

  • 5 – Murree (62 Hunter) [Shadow Keepers of Insani] 5.8k Health
  • 3 – Shariaati (64 Enh Shaman) [Cookie] 5.2k Health
  • 2 – Tirekssuperr (62 Arms Warrior) [Brigada] 6.3k Health
  • 2 – Dikkedwarf (61 Hunter) [Hands up Pants Down] 5.3k Health
  • 1 – Flowersz (66 Resto Shaman) [Munqui Tribe] 5k Health

I must point out that Murree got as many heals as the other hunter Dikkedwarf, I’m guessing most of his deaths were caused by his pet dying. Dikkedwarf didn’t have his pet out as much.
