in kills and 3 wipes this is not enough. I had the same problem, but once I started using them my output went up, by quite alot. If you have cooldowns, use them, and more importantly, think ahead when to use them. For Megaera, we had 1 healer use cd's a rampage and rotate, and have the dps cooldowns backup if needed. I knew the 3rd and 6th rampage would be mine, so I could plan ahead and know when to use them.
Apart from that, raw int gems are not something I'd personally want. I can see the reasoning for the jc gems, but gemming full spirit for blue and full int for red is not my personal choice, I'd rather go with int/spi and mast/int, since mastery > int.
Hi, I joined a 25 man heroic guild this week, but I haven't healed 25s since FL in cata. I've also been ret for 90% of MoP, all for 10 man.
Advice is appreciated, and my gear is rather lacking vs the other healers.
(can't post links, sorry)
This was my first time healing on any of these fights, and the first time seeing them heroic for most of them. I know I could do better on CDs, and I know I should have talent switched to light's hammer on megaera specifically (hindsight!), but I just want to improve whatever I can.
edit: tonight: dark animus attempts, I think I did better? worldoflogs.com/reports/bsx0xzn86jhfx8ir/

I recently started to play and raid 10 mans in WoW after getting a referral from a friend. I started to raid ToT consistently around August of this year, and am still learning the ropes through pugging. I've read the Icy-Veins guide and the MMO-champion one listed here, as well as followed a couple of reports from blogs like Paladiner, etc.
I was hoping I could get any sort of advice to improve my H-Pally healing, even though 5.4 is only a week or two away.
The following are my logs and armory links: (sorry can't post links too)

I know I need to improve the usage of my healing CDs and need to use my mana return trinkets more often.
Thanks in advance!

One big thing to watch out for is holy shock usage on cooldown. It's your big cheap HoPo generator. The fight lasted 645 seconds which gave you opportunity to use it 107 times. You used it 51. This ratio needs to improve quite a lot.
Otherwise its as you said. You need to use all your throughput cooldowns more.
Good Luck all in SoO!

You can't expect a 100% HS use, but 51 is WAY too low for that fight length.
I'd consider bar positioning and binding too for one if it's a problem for said poster.
Why go that much palas on Int Gems now ?
In terms of red and yellow gem slots, should I use Reckless (Int/Haste) until I reach the 7170 point, then go for pure Mastery for yellow and Int/Mastery for red? (assuming the bonus is worth matching the colors, of course)
Somebody of u tested in 25man Selfless healer ? is it good or better than the EF ( Malkorok EF is yes normal) but the other bosses or is SH just good at fights which are rly loong ?
So, I'm seeing a lot of paladins trying out pure red gems in all red sockets with 80int/160mastery (or haste depending) for yellows and 80int/160 spirit for blues. This is just to increase throughput without increasing the amount of regen needed right? does Int> mastery/haste now like icy veins is saying?
I think it's because when you hit ur haste cap at 7170 if your going for that then should go for straight int for output. Since mana hasn't been an issue I've dropped spirit gems for int ones and its really increased my hps
My group doesn't run logs (I'll look into running some for myself).
That said, I'd love some general guidance on reforge and gem suggestions. Pre-5.4, I stacked haste and at the advice of others, I swapped to mastery to try it out. While both sides have benefits, I feel like my individual playstyle mandates I meet somewhere in the middle.
That said, I haven't raided really at all this expac and would LOVE some general guidance, tips, advice, etc from my fellow healers.
Our healing comp is usually: Rdruid and myself (hpal obviously). We do have a rshaman we swap in or even try 3 healing with sometimes, otherwise he's ele.
You should change these pure mastery gem for something like int+mastery, Also i recommend using holy avenger and use it like another healing CD.
U guys still blanketing EF if yes How many charges u are using to do it 1, 2 or 3 ?
