    /follow on Yogg's 1st phase

    So i've been in a pug recently. There was a fully Ulduar25 geared priest.
    We get to Yogg and wipe several times, not even getting to the 2nd phase because of people touching clouds.
    After that, priest makes a confession he just /followed a mage through the clouds. He thought it was ok.
    So, a question to priests here - is it even possible to effectively heal through 1st phase as priest, /following some random guy? Maybe avoiding clouds, but always following.
    Thanks, i'd appreciate your answers.

    upd
    Oh yeah, it was Ulduar 10, all keepers helping.
    Feral dps :3

    Since the healing requirement in p1 is very low, one healer being semi-AFK and on follow can work, as long as neither the one he follows nor him wade through clouds.

    Why do you care is it possible to /follow someone? Nobody should be doing that anyways

    Just a few things I would like to point out to you:

    1. I'm pretty sure as soon as you cast a spell when following someone it will break the follow.
    2. There is a delay when you follow someone I think you have to be 5 yards apart before you even start to move.
    3. I cannot believe I actually repied to this post

    I'm pretty sure as soon as you cast a spell when following someone it will break the follow.
    only if it have a casting time..not if is istant.

    anyway only thing about following someone on P1 is that the ppl you are following could be a blind that touch cloud..ending with 2 ppl that touch cloud = wipe

    BTW, during Yog P1 not all the raid move just few ppl that get the killing blow, a healer and the tank...the less ppl move, the less possible error on cloud.

    Then again, Yog P1 ( if interrupt are decent ) is a joke to heal

    Actually, no, I'm pretty sure you keep following and it interrupts the cast. I can't confirm that since I'm at work, but I'm fairly sure that's the case.

    I use to help lowbies level up with my priest and I would just put them on /follow, throwing them renews whenever they needed it (staying out of their group so they got full exp).

    And I can confirm that casts DO NOT break following, but if the person you are following moves, it will interupt your cast (as it requires you to move to follow them)

    So all you could really do is cast instants.

    Sure, since the Mage will likely be standing still when healing is required.

    If it was a Disc Priest, then the Shields will cover a lot of it with a Renew and PoM. If it's Holy, strong Renew, PoM and CoH (with an instant cast FH!) can cover P1 if you're feeling lazy.
