So, after four grueling hours and a multitude of adjustments, we finally managed to down Garalon- post nerf to enrage timer.
We ended up being forced to do two-healing, without a ton of stacking (so ouch for me) and with four (or was it five?) total kiters. It felt- messy. And I swear my mana pool had a hole in the bottom, it was not pretty!
It was also rough on my ego; after four hours, I was not at my best, but there was not a single attempt when our awesome holy pally didn't do at least 15% more healing than I did; he was usually floating between 70-90k HPS, and it was only towards the end that I pushed it from 45k up to 50k, usually floating between 47-52K per attempt.
He was using his lower item level blue PVP set that gives him awesome PVE set bonuses- 10% more healing to Holy Shock, 4 piece is 1 holy power every time you do a 3 holy power Word of Glower (or for him, Eternal Flame.) I am around 8 ilvls beneath him, though not with his blue PVP gear- in this case, I probably had more int/spirit/secondaries, but he was kicking my numbers to the curb!
My own PVP set has... no use to PVE. (SWG is now also stun/fear immunity, lowers the CD on spell reflect totem)
I was trying to use my cooldowns on cooldown, though it was hard to fit in Ascendance because we were stacked, but VERY MOBILE for much of ALL THE TIME; still, I tried. I don't know. This whole fight was just really tough for me.
I feel like I might as well climb onto my paladin's shoulders and shout to the world that I am inept and must be carried through content. It's very disheartening. Is he just ridiculous with his numbers, or am I just really bad??
Looking at the logs, I KNOW I can improve my earth shield numbers- I was trying to keep it on the kiter for additional healing, but I was more concerned with staying in range of the rest of the group, and the kiter often did not fulfill that qualification. That's one big area I need to fix, 50% is not okay. I have improved on my riptide usage, which is good I guess...
Here are said logs. Tear me apart please. I'm trying, but I am not doing well enough.
