Hey guys. So I've been kind of back and forth about my healing style lately. I'm part of a sem-hardcore 25m progression guild with 3/6 heroic MSV down. I'm top 5 holy pally on the server gear wise as well. A couple weeks ago we got rid of our other holy pally because his healing methods, despite looking awesome on the meters, were detrimental to the raid as a whole. He refused to use LoD at all, even on fights like heroic Feng where the smart heal saves lives, and simply EF blanketed at pretty much all times. Some might say that there's nothing wrong with that but we saw a dramatic change in our healing core performance with him gone. Because if this I've tried to shy away from that style.
Now my numbers are by no means bad but I feel like I should be pushing much higher than I currently am. I don't really care about my rankings as much as I care about doing what's necessary for a successful encounter but I am curious as to whether or not I'm performing as well as I should. I tend to radiance spam (I have 2pc) and holy shock on CD, alternating spending holy power on the tanks and LoD to raid heal. It obviously varies fight to fight, as I tend to EF spam the raid more on fights such as garalon with more predictable damage. My question is should I be EF spamming more?? When I look at top world of logs rankings, EF spam seems to be the way to go, but is that really what's best for the raid? or is it just good for pushing high numbers?
I posted this same thread on the official forums and the responses were encouraging but more opinions never hurt. What's everyone else's style like from fight to fight?
