The 4-piece bonus for Holy is netting Holy Word: Serenity crits of 145k. Renew is so powerful. Put the Lightspring on top of the node flag. You get a 2 second stun along with your other cc abilities. Granted, I'm only playing Random BGs, but Holy is really fun to play and it's not unusual to heal for 10m or more during a BG if I'm seeing alot of action.
Problem with Holy is that (On my own personal experience) you get killed even way faster!
Sure you might be able to pull more heal, but I spend more time as a Val'kyr than as Blood elf.
Our shields are a joke, even more as Holy. No Shields = no "Somewhat" safe hard cast. Any suggestion on that? Also, for BGs should I always keep Serenity up? I tried to go Sanctuary lol. bad idea.
Chakra Serenity 99% of the time. Take a look at the set bonus. You have an increased chance to crit on HW:Serenity every 10 sconds. My crits on HW:S are healing for 145k+, that's pretty huge every 10 seconds when you have ProM bouncing and renew rolling. I use shield mostly as a getaway (body n soul) or to buy some cushion to heal up. My shields absorb about 64k, so I don't find that to be weak at all. Renew is doing about 30% of my healing in BG's.
Mind you, I'm only running Random BG's, but basically I just keep renew rolling on anyone in range, keep ProM on CD, HW:S on CD and try to stay on the move to either range or LoS. Tendrils on Melee, Fear on CD (either on enemy heals or to get away). Cascade will refresh Renew on anyone it hits, so make sure you have alot of Renews rolling when you use it and try to be at a distance from your group when you do. I use desperation, inner sanctum and inner fire glyphs. The only time I switch out of Chakra:Serenity is to use the 2 sec Chastise on someone in a pinch, but I stay in Serenity most of the time. If I'm at a node, Lightspring goes on top of the flag. I only use Circle of Healing sparingly, or in emergencies, because it is pretty mana costly, though as gear improves I'm sure I will be using it more. I take desperate Prayer and Macro it to the Battlemaster trinket and Healthstone. Right now, Healthstones are healing for more than Desperate Prayer. If you are low, and you have a Healthstone, this combination will literally bring you back to full, if not close to it. Your team taking a beating? Hide in a bush or around a corner and channel Divine Hymn. Use your Mindbender on CD for mana. If there is a resto druid in your group - BEG, literally, BEG for Cyclone via Symbiosis. It helps alot, the Rdruid HPriest combo is pretty damn amazing actually. You can use it to Juke, and if u get interrupted, no big deal - you aren't locked out of your Holy spells.
I have some screenies at home of me healing 15m+ in games without dying. I was a die-hard Disc PvP since I started PvPing, and this Holy thing is a totally different playstyle. Stick with it, get your keybinds in order and bound to muscle memory. Don't give up. I love playing Priest and have made the switch to Holy and am loving it.
Now, just to find an RBG group that will take me lol. I fear I will be chained to Random BG's all season.
