Humans are the only species on the planet smart enough to be this stupid.
maybe you're not progressing in Heroic raids, or are too weak as a healing team to think of using one GCD for something other than healing output, but in most fights there's dead time where using one GCD to do 500k or more damage makes a lot of sense.
I only use Holy Prism for the 3rd boss in MSV. Or any other boss in the future that doesn't have a stacked up raid taking AoE damage.
Other than that, Holy Prism all the way for 5 man content. But it really needs to be a smart heal and a smart damage spell.
Or, instead, you could add a SS indicator to your raid frames. Using Vuhdo, I have an indicator showing who it's on and that counts down when under 10 seconds. I did the same thing for SS during Wrath and for Beacon of Light since 3.0. If you're not watching your frames often enough to maintain SS then you may be using Denounce, CS, and/or Execution Sentence too often.
I really have to try them both out now. I was seriously thinking of dropping execution stance (doesn't seem to really be helping me much when I pug raids, do 5-mans or LFR) and picking up Light's Hammer. I think it will fit me a little better than Prism, as prism seems to just be the original LoD from Cata beta but you choose a target.
Does anyone find execution stance useful at all or am I just not using it on the right fights?
(I don't mean to derail, but since you guys are talking about the talents, it seems like a decent place to ask rather than start a new topic).
I started using Light's hammer but lately i always use Holy Prism.... It's a quite nice spell to instant heal a target or AOE healing (Ok, some times it fails to target players with low health)and with low CD. It's very important to choose between an Ally or an Enemie target.
Anyways it depends on the fight. If there's not a lot of movement and people is grouped or there are adds Light hammer is way better.
Holy Prism on Elegon, during phase 2 you can use it on a melee when adds spawn for a 70-130k on all sparks to help out with some decent damage. As we doesn't have any problem with annihilation I find that more useful than LH (though that is normal 10m). Been playing around with LH alot more.
Any tips for Garalon, barely used LH yesterday cause people were to spread out and constant movement, prism should be better if im not mistaken?
Holy Prism is my favority, because of the short cooldown and the damage/spreadhealing
LH has no mana coast...simple like that....at low gear, ill definitively go for LH.
Holy Prism will now always Heal the 5 closest allies with the lowest health.
Just wondering if anyone has tried it since this hotfix?
I've messed with it in LFR this morning and it was one of my top heals i can't wait to use it tonight in raid!
I am looking forward to trying it as well. Light's hammer isn't cutting it on H blade lord.
