hello priest community
I have a combat log from a 7 bosses kill in 25 man night in ulduar at bottom but please read the post first ty
first thing i would like to say that im shocked
i see threads about ppl trying to compare holy with disc and disc with other healers and vise versa. tbh its like comparing druid tank with a warlock... - thats right nothing in common what so ever.
disciplne priests have in 90% of time tottaly different role - damage mitigation so stop trying and compare us to other healers.
I spent some time reading other topics concerning disc priests and "how much exactly they are valuable" in raids.
and each time i see some dude say "hey im disc priest and i dont aoe heal that well but atleast i have no mana problmes" i understand why some ppl dont like taking us into raids. if you dont run into mana issues as disc priest well - YOU SLACK! so wake up and start shielding ppl.
if you wait for some one to take dmg and then you bubble them to "buy" some time for some other healer to land his big heal then you miss your point as damage mitigator coz u didnt mitigate anything.
i burn around 2.5-3k mana every single 5 sec in boss encounter spaming shields on raid preventing as much damage as i can.
There are only few fights when some "random" raider will be safe for 30 sec without taking even 1 point of damage some way.
In most fights raiders consume their shields while weakened soul still up on them, in less than 15 so almost no shield goes to waste.
dont try to heal ppl with 4-5k crappy flash heals or the imba long not effective greater heals, its nothing wrong to use it now and then but its simply not your job to heal ppl.
your job is to prevent damage not retroactive heal it.
discipline priest who knows his job will allways and i mean allways be number one if you check healing + absorbs... and not by 1-5% but by 40% + from any other "true healer" class.
and her is some numbers:
in this log every shield cast is considered healing only by the amount consumed in other words: If i shield some one for 6k and he takes 2k dmg, then it will count as 2k heal and not 6k.
25 man in ulduar 7 first bosses cleared:
you can see that shibba healed for almost 17 million while best healer is siting with only 10 million. you can hover over shibba and see the details.
you can click on Shibba and see that I casted 4680 shields... thats shield spaming and not waiting for raid to take dmg and then panic oh wtf do i do now.
and on a side note we discs have passive 3% dmg raid wide reduction, if you check the damage taken total over that night you will see that we took 91768939 damage, which are 97% the missing 3% are another 2.8 million that i mitigated.
all in tottal puts me in almost twice the top healer with almost 20mil against his 10mil.
i have been runing with this tactic in every single place i could get in, as well as puggs and i allways dominated the charts.
before you qutoe and flame me, check Shibba on Shadowsong server EU - raid buffed i sit with 33.5k mana and replenishment with rapture gives me all the mp5 i need (ofc i use fiend and hymn + the crazy alch pot).
oh and dont bring me that bullshit about "you lack spirit" "crapy spell power" or what ever - first get the numbers i get after raid night and then tell me how you do it so i can improve and become even better disc pve priest.
