Overgearing and overhealing a 2 tier old 10 man raid is hardly a measure of any kind of healing done, hps, or ehps, and shouldn't even be considered as any of these things, so I don't see the point. I would imagine most healers in a naxx 10 would be dpsing most of the time anyway unless they were fresh 80.Originally Posted by Gratzzz
In any kind of challenging content meters will show at the very least who is not pulling their weight. Meters will show who is healing whom, with what spell, how often, for how much, etc. If you have a holy priest pumping out 4khps and another rocking 1khps, and dispels and assignment is similar, this might go unnoticed if not for meters. With a good healer comp in our raids I notice most of the heals covering roughly the same % of the heals, usually around 2-3khps. When a healer has the opportunity to bust out 4-5k hps with little overheal, and I'm not talking about raid blanketing, I'm talking about reactive necessary healing, that means someone isn't pulling their weight.
Meters are absolutely useful, as I said, in any decently challenging content.
Log all your raids and upload to world of logs IMO. Dissecting a log can prove to be extremely useful.
Should HPS be the only thing you look at to determine whether a healer is good or not? Absolutely not. Should it be a small part of it? Yes.
