    I'd say that's an option, but considering the vast amount of ways we have to not die, you're basically self targetting for a slightly bigger heal on you, versus hostile targetting for 4x heals to raid AND a heal to yourself.

    But personally i go by the :
    Do i want to make it easier on healers ? Shoot the enemy
    Do i want to slightly scumbag dps ? Splash
    That's accurate as well, and/or related to my point above.

    Have to agree with Nairobi, there's a very small niche for when you actually want to use HPr on yourself & I mean VERY small, even with Tortos HC I'd still rather use it on Tortos to help top off my shell shield before the bats arrive, also gives a bit extra healing aggro if they're spawning.
    Yes I use HPr instead of LH on Tortos but that's because the CD of LH doesn't intertwine well with the CD on bats.

    FWIW, I use LH more for the snare on turtle spawns than for bats, since it lines up perfectly until the 20% mark.

    But yes, with the aggro "bug" of HPr as it is now (where it will aggro any surrounding mobs from the target, even if neutral/non-social), it does make bat-grabbing a breeze.

    Speaking about Holy Prism, does 5.4 fix major bug with it? The part when you use it and it aggroes everything near you, be those aggressive mobs, neutral mobs or just critters. (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7513701513)

    And there I thought it just overaggros the healers, because .... well it's an insane burst heal.

    So using Prism on Tortos while tanking boss/bats makes initial aggro on bats easier than using it on myself? Also wouldn't using it on myself help maintain my crystal shell debuff more than using it on boss?

    You gain slightly more self heal from using it on yourself which you shouldn't need.
    And since there are more than 4 bats using prism on yourself will never get you all of them while doing it the other way round may produce enough raid heal to pull heal aggro.

    I solo tank Tortos using Holy Prism, and the bat always come straight to me. The only exception is if someone hits the bats before I do.
