So, up till recently I've been a Holy priest for my guild...
Now, I'm Disc because we have no pally or shaman healer and we have 2 resto druids in the guild so...
Generally considering I'm bubbling people I know will take consistent damage, always on the tanks.
I'm using PoM on every cooldown on the tank closest to the raid.
I use penance on cooldown either to apply grace, refresh it or to panic heal.
Now, the problem comes on a lot of fights when I apply bubble to the tank and then immediately PoM and before the PoM even lands the bubble is gone and the PoM instantly is gone as soon as it lands. This is where I would normally apply a renew and then begin my penance and flash heal rotation. That being said, though especially on fights like festergut or when the tank is taking hardcore damage I've had a tank die on me before I could finish applying renew and start penancing.
My question is if I can't apply renew after bubble is down because I'm having to spam heals soo hard and it can't crit for aegis isn't flash heal just a better overall spell anyway? I mean I know renew would be considered increased throughput because it heals for more than flash heal but it feels like a wasted GCD a lot of the time.
Don't get me wrong I'm not advocating for the removal of renew from our talent build because there really isn't a better option unless y'all think Spell Warding is better? I'm mostly curious when y'all stick it into your priority lists or are my tanks just way too squishy?
