Thoughts on raiding in my new spec

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:07 pm

So, cheap a couple of thoughts on raiding with the 3.0.2 talents.

  • Mana wasn’t an issue, treat I did get low once, but that was seconds before the end of the fight and I think I still had a Mana Tide available.
  • Mana Tide only got used twice, and one of those was because another healer went OOM.
  • I’m learning to use Riptide, I’m still not sure how well its working
  • Trash healing used to be 923 (908 overall), and has increased to 1033 (1109 overall), though that’s comparing Kara against ZA. So that’s a 10% increase in healing. Chain Heal seems to have benefited the most, probably from the RipTide bonus. I think the DPS have seen bigger increases post-patch.
  • My “interrupt focus” macro appears to be working, though I had target and focus set to the same boss. I can even use it if the cast is fairly slow.
  • I managed to “Cleanse Spirit” a few times. Woot! Interrupts and dispells, all I need to do is add Purge and Flowersz will have to get rid of that trained monkey!
  • Raid wide totems means I now have to decide whether to help the Casters or the knife wielders, though usually the DPS are using poisons and the like so they won’t benefit from Windfury, and the Strength of Earth with its Agility will help the droods and hunters anyway. Healing Stream healing 10 people now makes it look like a viable totem if Mana isn’t going to be an issue.

  1. Just an fyi, windfury totem now just adds haste to all to the knife wielders, so you can use windfury totem and they can use poison, sharpening stones etc.
