    Since you don't see the point of my previous post and/or consider it idiotic, here's another perspective. Take that solo-healing pally badass and put him in a raid where Tanks and especially DPS do not do much in the raid outside of strictly performing their roles. Does he still pull that raid through? We both know that just won't happen. The only reason he was able to "solo" heal it because he had a lot of help. Back in TBC, if there were only 2 healers on a successful boss kill, it would mean that they really did do it by themselves, with very little help. They could rightfully be said to have duo healed that fight. Again, the term is outdated.
    A good raid now has many non-heal specs providing quite a bit of healing/damage reduction, so yes, it's no longer 1,2,3,4,5,6,7-healed. It's that number+whatever came from DPS and Tanks.



    Yea. And if you look closer, you'll see that some of those raids' DPS/tanks do more healing than others. And that some of them have more classes/specs with significant damage reduction and healing than other raids. That usually means they could do it with less healers. The opposite for the raids with worse players and composition.
    The morale? The question is meaningless because it does not address the level of gameplay coming from raiders and many other factors.
    "A healer is a character whose primary combat purpose is to heal friendly creatures or give them defensive buffs. Priests, Druids, Paladins, and Shamans can all serve as healers. Healers are typically the second most in demand role for a dungeon or a raid, after tanks."

    I googled "what is a healer in WoW"

    Sounds like they solo healed it.

    He did less than half the healing done as the "solo healer", while blasting out all his mana over only 4 minutes... I wish my raid healed itself more than I healed it while I was spamming it that hard!

    Nope. Sorry guys, this has already been proven numerous times by other posters in thread: The only way this thread can even possibly be accurate is if we send the game back in time to 2007 when the REAL BADASSES were able to solo heal encounters. Change the misleading title immediately!

    Ignore these idiots.

    Well Done. Our BrM does some ridiculous healing at times too.

    Yep he's one of the people who's 5/6 heroic and solo healed a pretty challenging boss. He's terrible, someone get me a torch and pitchfork.

    Hello this thread is fantastic, i'm really glad it got this much attention, and I feel like I should respond.

    Our spriest uses halo and our brewmaster uses guard and chi wave no matter how many healer specced classes we take. Doesn't really matter what your definition of 'solo-healing' is we took one healer specced player and killed the boss one and a half minutes faster than any other logged kill in the world.

    Yes we used hybrid healing and tank absorbs, all 10 players contribute to the fight however they can. Of course I couldn't do all the healing without help from the other players in the raid (aside from the fact they would be playing quite sub-optimally if they weren't putting out these absorbs/healing). I think its important to note that it would also not be doable without enough dps to beat the retreat, squeezing out dps was just as important as the dps/tanks that contribute to healing.

    I had intended the interesting part of this video to be about beating empress' phase 2 timer rather than 'solo healing' (by any definition) and the SOLO HEALED caps was an attention grabber. There seem to be some seriously butt-hurt egos so I'm sorry for coming across as bragging! This wasn't particularly challenging and I think a lot of guilds could manage the same thing. It was just a fun experience/gimmick I thought I would share with the community.

    I'm not comfortable with all the lies and misinformation being fed to the poor MMO champ community.

    The truth is that normally we don't take anyone specced as a healer, my sweet Ox statue and I just carry the team through all the encounters with our ginormous healing. Palawin just really wanted something to show off to the MMOC community because he's trying to monetise his youtube channel to fund his horrible cocaine addiction.

    I felt sorry for him so I let him spec holy and stand in the corner mashing holy shock on himself while the rest of us killed the boss.

    Boy that feels good to get off my chest.

    I used my healthstone with dark regeneration twice and I used unending resolve and dark pact. In addition to the monk and priest healing, I, the warlock, also healed. I guess this was actually a 4 healed kill and not a solo healed kill as the OP mentioned. I am sorry that he mislead you all.

    I knew the truth would come out eventually, I'm just glad you guys had the decency to come clean! Well, barring Palwin's coke addiction... but one step at a time, right?

    Does a Sha of Jealousy exist? I think it got many many many people, this thread is evidence and proof that it exists.

    Are we allowed to use healthstones?
    Yea they are just jealous about what you did there. Those people are glad they have their 6/6 LFR and trying to teach you here.

    Good job man!!

Fun can't be quantified with straight-up data, and trying to use statistics to measure fun is a dangerous logical minefield.

    This thread is hilarious
    It's a cool thing, but... regardless, normal modes are normal, on heroic 25m most of our healers are doing more HPS than that paladin, so I don't find it "all that impressive".
    I guess you never solo healed. There were encounters on which you would be required to do significantly less healing, if you solo heal. To name the few: Marrogwar, Lady Deathwhisper, Rotface, Putricide, Cho'gall, Alysrazor, Majordomo, Hagara, Ultraxion. I might've forgotten some. This doesn't exactly mean that healing got easier when your hps dropped (though in some cases it was easier to solo heal than duo heal). You still need a lot more awarness of boss mechanics, and you need to make right priorities of what you heal so people don't die.

    HPS matters nothing in encounter healing difficulty. Garalon isn't challenging for healers at all even though you do fuck loads of HPS. At the same time healing Zorlok is way harder and you do like twice less HPS there.

    Care to point out the flaw in my logic instead of being sarcastic <snip>?

    With your logic they could have got another monk and priest there and no healed it.

    Definitely not a solo healing because the players are fully buffed. So because every player in the raid did healing the actual healer only counts for 10%. Now remove the benefit from buffs and we can draw a conclusion that he 8% healed it.

    Impressive! My raidlead was totally amazed when I told him there is a guild that did this boss without an add phase

    Exactly the math I was hoping to see. Who the fuck bothers buffing in a raid these days? These idiots think they're special because they cast spells which increase your raid's effectiveness.
