Hello fellow readers, just as the title says I'm looking for serious advice concerning a holy priest guildie of mine.
We are a 10 man raiding guild (currently 5/13 hc) and due to attendance problems and raiders quitting the game we had to recruit a few new people. I was recently promoted to the healing officer in charge of our healers.
Our current raiding roster looks like this most of the time:
* 2 feral bear tanks, both with moonkin OS.
* 1 warrior tank, dualspecced prot/prot.
* 1 Retribution paladin, prot OS.
* 1 Survival/MM hunter.
* 1 Fire mage (our GL) and 1 arcane mage, both with pvp frost OS.
* 2 Fury warriors, currently both have a prot OS. One of them isn't raiding as much as the other.
* 1 Frost death knight, with frost pvp OS.
* 1 Affliction warlock.
* 1 Holy paladin, prot OS.
* 1 Resto druid (me), either resto pvp or moonkin OS.
* 1 Resto shaman, went to social a few months ago and recently came back.
* 1 Holy priest.
I'm pleased with both the paladin and the shaman, but the shaman can't be there as often as we would need him to.
Then we have the priest healer. She is a friend of the GL and she got invited while I was gone for 2 days, I didn't see the application on the forum until after she had been invited. I wasn't pleased with the application and what turned out even worse was that she had been in our guild back in Wrath, when we were doing ICC25 hc. Our GL back then was very harsh and direct when he didn't like something, and ended up kicking her on Saurfang. He said in gchat "Sorry, but you are not doing anything at all. You are only wasting our time with your slacking" or something in that style and then kicked her from the raid and guild. We have another GL now, but I was still surprised when she was invited due to the fact that several members confirmed that she was slacking majorly and had been removed because of it.
Anyway, I decided to give her a chance, and invited her to the following nights raid in BoT. I had earlier that day looked at her armory site and I wasn't a fan of either the spec or the glyphs, politely adviced her to switch out Glyph of Flash heal to Glyph of Prayer of healing, as she would be assigned to AoE healing. She did this without complaining.
We killed Halfus hc, I felt like with her gear she should have been doing more healing, decided to try let her and the paladin 2 heal Valiona and Theralion, as we 2 healed it before without problems. It failed.
I respecced resto from moonkin and we continued to down bosses. We did 1 shot Cho'gall, which I honestly doubted we would with a couple of new people that never done the fight before, but her healing was in my opinion again too low. Other officers agreed with me and GL claimed she was underperforming due to being nervous. Sure, I can buy that. During my first raid with the guild in ICC hc I failed to being nervous aswell.
Yesterday our paladin healer couldn't make it due to work, so we went Throne of the four winds with me, the priest and the hunter on her paladin as healers. Conclave went okay. Al'akir not so much. Healing was assigned, but the people she was responsible for was not getting healed. When we downed him I had a look at the healing meter and I didn't like what I saw. She had done about 6-7k HPS.
I'd also like to add that there's also some tactics she haven't learned that well yet, corruption on Cho'gall, tornados on Al'akir and debuffs on Ascendant council in p2 are good examples.
Tonight we are going to progress on heroic modes in BWD. I have to tell her that her performance isn't good enough as it is right now, and that she needs to improve. Why I'm posting here is because I'm not as experienced with holy priests in Cata, and I could really use some advice that I can pass on to her in how to improve. I'd really like to help her out, without being an asshole like our previous GL was.
Should she switch any glyphs? Is it worth it to stack mastery for 10 man raiding? How is her usage of different spells, too litte/too much of what?
I can't link anything yet, and it's my first time posting, but I'll try to add armory link and WoL of both that BoT run and Al'akir.
