    My idea to replace Lightwell

    Holy Spirit Bomb - Summons a Holy Spirit Bomb which can be filled with holy light (heals) up to <amount here>. The Holy Spirit Bomb has 30,000 health and will detonate upon being destroyed, healing all members in the party/raid for <amount here>. 2 minute cooldown.

    Basically the idea is after Holy Spirit Bomb is cast, healers have to fill it up using heals, then dps in the raid can detonate it to heal the raid at an opportune moment or when needed. Not a full heal all around, but something large enough to make it a useful part of raiding.

    It seems a little.. Fiddly. Plus, Blizzard didn't want to make it into an entirely different ability, which is what you've done, even going as far as changing the name.

    I like Lightwell the way it is ;_;

    I can see stupid dps messing with it, but I like the idea. A big warlock healthstone with area effect. Would be perfectly suitable for those situations where AoE is hitting the raid and not everyone is high on priority list.

    Definately an interesting concept, but not very practical. I mean, say 3 DPS are at 5% hp, and the bomb is at 50% hp. I think those DPS are gonna die before that bomb goes off. Also, DPS needs to switch from Boss to Bomb to detonate it, an overall DPS loss for them.

    It should be something simple, useful, and not under or overpowered. Maybe something like, " Creates a Holy Lightwell. Up to 5 members or your raid or party within 8yds of the Lightwell are healed for up to 5% of all healing you do."

    That is a pretty specific scenario in which you're probably right, the "Holy Spirit Bomb" wouldn't be very appropriate, but I could give you 5-10 boss fights from WotLK raids atm in which there is a persistent raid wide AoE damage that "Holy Spirit Bomb" would be very effective.

    I think the kill-the-bomb idea is just a bad idea. I think the bomb should be detonated by the healer by using the ability a second time. A burst AoE heal prepared in advance, really.

    The only way to make Light Well better is to make it like a totem.

    I think a good way to fix it would be to make it like a 'rechargeable' totem.
    Imagine the Lightwell from ToTC's mobs - now imagine if that worked on a 'pool' of heals where you had to cast a heal spell on the well for it to continue to dish out heals to random players - you have to 'refuel' the well. I think that would be fun and interesting.

    Re: My idea to replace Lightwell

    i think lightwell should be just like ToC's. A fountain that pours out superficial healing. It shouldnt be a replacement for a healer, it should be an assistant. Stick it in melee or soemthing and it spouts out <X> heal every <Y> seconds to the surrounding raid members. Sorta like fountain of light off the trauma proc.

    I think that's much better

    Why dont they just change it so it puts a hot on the raid member with the lowest hp with a 2 sec cd?

    Re: My idea to replace Lightwell

    i actually think that the idea above was smart, make lightwell like a sort of beacon of light to heal the whole raid for <x% healing done by the priest> works with lightwell, not too op as healing given is adjustable.


    Thanks to Stanton Biston for the amazing sig!

    Re: My idea to replace Lightwell

    This probably wouldn't work because...

    1) If you have time to heal an NPC to 30K, why aren't you healing your party???
    2) It still requires DPS to target it, only this time they actually have to ATTACK

    Takes the biggest problem with the existing spell and makes it worse.

    Re: My idea to replace Lightwell

    The biggest reason lightwell fails now is it requires players who are normally not thinking about healing to think about healing. I like the idea of having a grand evening-out button where everyone's health in the healer's group is made the same percent to save one person. For example, your tank is dying, there is no great heal that is going to save him in time, GS is on CD, Lightwell (well filled with light) is called upon to balance out the group and save that tank, all players in that group have their current health poured into the well and divied back out at equal percentages. Granted, a tank with a lot of hps would kill any low hp char in his group with this but.... eh. Something.

    Re: My idea to replace Lightwell

    I remember back when I was holy and actually bothered speccing into lightwell, I would be like.. CLICK THE LIGHTWELL. MAKE OUR JOB EASIER!

    Now maybe since blizzard seems to want to retard proof well.. Everything - Maybe they should just make it autoheal somebody under a certain %. A sorta smart heal?

    Predicting damage - the right way.
