Preface: I've noticed that our other Holy Priest gets a lot more healing from Prayer of Mending, naturally she's just using it more often than I am (at my fault of course, I know I don't use it enough). I've also been hardcore raiding as a Holy Priest since Vanilla and have done everything from US 50 KJ to US138 Pre-nerfed M'uru. Currently 6/13.
More often than not I am putting out more or equal numbers with different healing breakdowns. Now, I know the benefits of this and providing synergy through different healing methods is great. Especially when having multiples of the same spec/class versus everyone doing the same thing (this is why we bring all different healing classes and not just all Holy Priests, right?).
I just wanted to get some opinions on this. I know that what I am doing is fantastic and I am completely confident and comfortable in my healing style (and consider myself an exceptional player) - I heal people that matter and focus a lot on triage with PoH on lowest groups, etc versus ProM that is a single target, somewhat, random heal. I also use Renew a lot more than she does (mostly on tanks), but I generally use the GCD on PoH over ProM. I'm not a good with all the wow math stuff, and would just like a solid discussion.
Comments like "you're bad, use ProM more" can save us both the time and go elsewhere. This is meant to be a solid discussion on ProM and it's usefulness as a GCD versus PoH during those tight moments when a lot of people are low (think Incineration Security Measure + Shadow Infusion). Please focus on that.
Even if ProM isn't going to bounce more than once, if at all, is it worth it because of the Glyph? Should it just be dropped on CD whether or not there's pulsing AoE damage coming out?
Here's our Magmaw kill for this week where we have nearly identical effective healing and HPS, but very different healing breakdowns.
All Omnotron wipes + kill last night
Feel free to look through any other logs from the previous week (I just joined last week). Also keep in mind Lightwell usage, which can somewhat skew things. I had better placement on Omno later on, etc.
Again, unproductive and trolling comments aren't wanted. Go elsewhere. Also, if you didn't read the whole post don't bother commenting with your half-arsed responses either. Thanks
