Holy priests still too weak
12/10/2012 10:12 PMPosted by Feythylanare Holy Priests Taking Mindbender? I don't even use that. I also run 10 man with a Resto Druid, so sitting in Chakra: Sanctuary would spell uncertain doom. I mostly spend time in Serenity and just change to Sanctuary as needed.
There's really no reason for a Holy Priest NOT to take Mindbender. It's the best talent in that tier.

Saying that your healer spec is weak is just pointing the finger when the real problem is you are a bad healer. Improve yourself and learn how to heal each fight individually and you wont be needing to make threads about it :)
If you are having problems with mana in sanctuary, it's likely because you are over spamming PoH and trying to top people off too much, or you're using sanctuary when you should be in serenity. You should be using CoH, and PoM on cooldown. Also, whenever more than 7 people in your raid are below 100%, cascade will provide massive HpM. Additionally, in 10 mans do not cast Sanctuary unless you have 6+ targets standing in it for the full duration (this almost never happens).
In serenity stance, holy priests should NEVER lose a ton of mana. The highest throughput we have is rolling renews with heal (and often keeping PoM on cd.) It's easy to keep 4 improved-renews rolling at a time assuming you're properly statted for haste. This is highly mana efficient. In fights with a lot of single target damage, Holy priests should also be specced into FDCL to aid in the rolling of heals.
For those of you nosey armory peakers, don't look too much into my stat allocation (other than spirit). I'm currently reforged/gemmed for a weird disc/holy hybridization.
