    Hand of Purity uses for T14

    I'm hoping we can create a thread to discuss some potential uses for Hand of Purity. I've seen a lot of speculation as to what works and what doesn't, so hopefully we can get a definitive list of abilities that Hand of Purity works for. If you know any abilities that it works then I can add it to the list.

    Mogu'shan Vaults

    The Stone Guard - Rend Flesh

    Feng the Accursed (Each stacks. Best used at 2+ stacks)
    Spirit of the Fist - Lightning Lash
    Spirit of the Spear - Flaming Spear
    Spirit of the Staff - Arcane Shock

    Heart of Fear
    Amber-Shaper Un'sok - Parasitic Growth (Best used towards the end of the debuff)

    Blade Lord Ta'yak - Wind Step - About 30 seconds between casts. Enough to get almost every one

    Terrace of Endless Spring


    Heroic Dungeons


    Brewmaster Monk
    - Stagger



    If you have any abilities or thoughts feel free to post below.

    I have been waiting for a thread like this for a long time.

    It worked on Blade Lord Ta'yak's Wind Step during Beta

    Wind Step - Blade Lord Ta'yak teleports to random player and inflicts a quick strike. The blow causes all targets within 8 yards to bleed for 160,000 Physical damage every 3 sec. for 30 sec.

    Added it to the main post. Anything from beta I will label as such until we can get in there on live to be 100% sure. Although I don't really expect any of the beta Hand of Purity uses to change between beta and live.

    Feng the Accursed uses DoTs in every phase. Hand of Purity is extremely useful there.

    There seem to be quite a few abilities that sound DoTish.
    Spirit of the Fist
    http://www.wowdb.com/spells/131788-lightning-lash

    Spirit of the Spear
    http://www.wowdb.com/spells/116942-flaming-spear
    http://www.wowdb.com/spells/116784-wildfire-spark
    http://www.wowdb.com/spells/116717-wildfire-spark
    (Not sure, but Guessing no on this one)

    Spirit of the Staff
    http://www.wowdb.com/spells/131790-arcane-shock
    http://www.wowdb.com/spells/116365-arcane-velocity (Guessing no to this one as well)

    Do you know which of these Hand of Purity works on?

    I'll be testing it again on Tuesday, but the DoTs are Lightning Lash, Flaming Spear, and Arcane Shock. Possibly Arcane Velocity, though that wouldn't be worth using it on. Those three stack and, assuming that tanks taunt at two stacks, Hand of Purity is best saved for when a tank has 2+ stacks.

    I've heard some people mention that Jasper Chains on Stone Guards works with Hand of Purity. Can anyone have information either way on it?

  9. #9
    </3 Hand of Purity.

    I would assume anything labeled periodic on wowhead or wowdb would work. wtb addon or DBM plug-in.

    Like for Lightning Lash, wowhead has Apply Aura: Periodic Damage, Wowdb has Periodic Damage

    Can those be determined in-game?

    I know it's on there already but have to attest to The Stone Guard bleed affect. We have undergeared tanks and when I put this on one during the bleed I felt like I could forget him for a bit and heal the raid.

    Updating the thread with some stuff I've seen from Heart of Fear. Hand of Purity works on Parasitic Growth on Amber-Shaper Un'sok. Healers preferred that I use it on the target towards the end of the 30 second debuff.

    I also think it might work on Poison Drenched Armor, but the extra BoPs from Clemency seem to be a better choice to me for that fight. Haven't tested this yet though.

    the thing about purity. Is clemency usually beats it in alm ost every way.

    Why Purity someone for wind step when HoP removes it.

    Chain sac on tank.

    Purity is 70% dot reduction 12 second per minute uptime.

    You say no dot damage?
    Obviously don't take it.

    Clemency is an extra 12 second sac in addition to a 12 second sac for only 30% redirection to you, not pure mitigation.
    12 seconds of 30% vs 24 seconds of 70% per 2minute uptime.

    Shorter cd means you can apply it to more people and more times per fight.

    Redirection is not mitigation, and can kill you when the raid is low and mana is tight which happens often bubble-sac'ing isn't always an option either and also costs 2gcds.

    Hand of protection is the only other semi-useful hand in the pve scenario and it is very situational as well as trivial to use it on something like windstep which goes out too frequently for the cd to even matter (average 8 per person in my log). And on garajal heroic while it can save someone it also hurts tank damage which is a big deal in 10m. 1 bop is enough imo.

    Perhaps it's underused. I'll try using it more. Specifically jade statues since the tile debuff is a dot.... and im the tile master son! I can do an entire side solo with warlock portals setup. Hold your dick! im breaking my chains. I'll likely never parse this fight. playing lightbright is too fun

    I can confirm that this works on Blade Lord Ta'yak's Wind Step on live. Guilds ret pally and I were rolling them on wind step targets, it's not quite a 30 second timer between them but we can usually get them off on each person. HoP'ing the first clothies targetted, too.

    Thanks. I'll update the main post.

    Hand of Purity is only 6 seconds per min, not 12

    Nope, the cooldown is 30 seconds. Twelve seconds per minute for sure.

    Normally I'd say it's useful for running tiles on Stone Guard, but if it's later in the fight you should really be trying to match your crystal to the petrification for that sweet 90% reduction.

    Unless it's been changed, HoPure should still work on a Brewmaster's Stagger effect, which is fantastic if they've got a crazy stack and can't purify it.

    Hand of Purity works well for Elegon's Breath attack, if you have two Paladins with it you can very nicely remove a good portion of damage from the Elegon tank, especially combined with a Hand of Sac when the add is exploding.
