I'm not sure how bad Pathogen is on 10m with less healers, but I do know that on Council I will typically Beacon the Frostbite target (solo-soak method).
How do you manage it then oggy ?
The tank damage is also pretty high, at least from what I saw on my guild's stream.
On HR on Primoridus, the raid seemed a bit spread, but in a messy way, so we'll see !
On council I keep tanks beaconed. We have a weird 5-casters-soak method anyway and as I said, I'm now doing mostly tank healing, so my fellows can focus on the raid.
So I tried T15 4 piece this week on Ra-den (our second kill) while I used T14 4 piece on our first kill. I honestly expected T15 4 piece to be really good as the tank is almost getting 1 shot every time Ra-den hits him.
T14 4 piece:
T15 4 piece:
As you can see the stats from T15 improved my healing a shit ton, not to mention I died right before we transistioned into the last phase this week so I started phase 2 on 40% mana with pot and DP on cd. But as you can see from the two screenshots my beacon healing was 7.4% on first kill and 7.5% on second kill.
If the 4 set is not good on Ra-den its not going to be good on a single boss in 25 man, it might be worth it in 10 man if you are 2 healing some fights but otherwise I just cant see any use for it.
Still amazing to see how much stats increased your healing !

Actually, it looks like it really only increased your AOE heals. Your EF healing remained basically the same.
T14: Daybreak 1594825 healing done, 4.5% of healing, 803 hits, 32.3% overheal
T15: Daybreak 1666647 healing done, 4.6% of healing, 603 hits, 26.0% overheal
Do note that the second kill (T15) was 10-15 seconds faster.
Hmm. I think the best gear can possibly be 541 offsets, not sure if the Daybreak changes will make a difference but either way I will probably run 2pc for now. Not sure about 4pc.
Assuming you use Lei Shen for the offset, double upped 541 Animus Legs and Durumu Gloves gives 244 int, 321 spirit, 1205 mastery over double upped 535 Tier which will give 1242 haste... seems like 2pc is the way to go?

You're going to get more mileage out of your beacon in 10 man so the 4 set will be a better performed in 10s. The 2 set is obviously better for 25s.
I am going 2p with offset pieces more likely than not.
What is everyone's opinion of the ra-den legs vs the animus legs (thunderforged of course)? I've only played around with comparing the two a little. I think in reality it will come down to preference, but I still wanted to see what others' thoughts were.
DA legs > Ra-den. I'm using T15 2pc and the HTF Jin'rokh chest which is really good too. I have no intention of going to 4pc at this point although I'll probably pick it up during farm in anticipation of next tier's progression.
Hoping for a good farm week so I have pieces to upgrade before Lei Shen. Even though I'm the only pally my drops have been pretty sparse.
4p T15 is proving itself worthy, at least on LS H...
IM TEH RET! er... teh holy... or it was teh prot?!
This bro told a cool story on 2009-12-03 and proudly took part in the banfest.
If you would go raid 2 days, one day with the set bonus and one day without it, you would not be able to tell the difference at the end of both days.
The core of the issue is tank self healing, specially prot paladins and blood dks. Those classes self assure about 40-75% of their healing needs(depending on vengence ofc). The only issue is spike damage, and the odds that the paladin 4p will ensure a tank's survival there are astronomical. Its a 50% buff to Beacon healing having a Prot Warrior/Bear instead of a Prot Paladin, who needs a 4p.
