Spirit Shell and Vuhdo (disc)

Whenever I cast Spirit Shell using Vuhdo in a raid, the symbol on the bar appears on only one group of 5 at a time. In a 10 man I can cast it on the other group, and if I am quick enough I can drop it on one and sometimes two other groups - but not all 5 in a 25 man LFR.

Truthfully, I don't even look at the raid to see if SS is dropping on all members.

Question: Is Vuhdo just messing up and not applying the icon to all 10 or 25 bars in the app, or is SS just shielding 5 raid members at a time?

Um. o_O I've never seen that happen.

If you have Vuhdo enabled to track Spirit Shell, when you hit the button, it will initially show the buff on you. That is the buff transmitting all of your heals into absorbs. Then as you cast Prayer of Healing on each party, it should display their SS buffs in the same position (on their bar) as the buff you will see on your bar.

My VuhDo displays this just fine.

Also, Spirit Shell converts the spells we already have. Prayer of Healing only hits 5 people at a time, so popping SS and then casting Prayer of Healing will continue to only hit 5 people at a time. In a 10-man, it's easy to alternate back and forth to build SS on both groups.

This may be a dumb question, but are you looking at your groups in columns or rows? When I switched to vuhdo I was looking at the groups in columns because that's how I had healbot set up. Then I realized that the groups were in rows and I was PoH'ing the same group 5 times.

I was going to report a bug on this as this is currently happening to me.

I noticed in a 25 man and spent the afternoon yesterday testing and trying to figure it out.

I hit SS get the buff and PoH multiple groups and only the group I am in will get the buff. Not just on Vuhdo, but if I target and track their buffs they are not getting it. I tested this all afternoon.

This has changed in the past 3 days because it WAS tracking for all groups, not it only to the group I am in.

If I SS and Greater Heal multiple people from different groups, it works.
If I PoH multiple groups Divine Aegis is alive and well...

As soon as I SS and PoH then only the group of 5 I am in will get SS Absorb shields.
Yes my rows and groups are correct, my buffs track also include SS duration.

It was all working before they hotfixed the Spirit Shell Bug they had late last week. i am just wondering if they screwed this up in the process or perhaps I am just crazy.

Tell me I am crazy... please.

You're crazy. I used Spirit Shell last night in 10 man and everyone got the buff I cast it on.

I used it the day before in LFR and had no issues.

Melchezidek,

Did you get your issue sorted out?

So an update from my testing - if you have a custom macro in Vuhdo with PoH that will do what Melchezidek had an issue with.

It did for me anyway... all is fixed... I was crazy. Now am sane again.

Sorry for the long delay.

It is working correctly, and thanks for your help.

SS (via PoH) hits a group of 5, and then I can get the next group, etc.

Can get all 5 groups in LFR if I do power infusion first, or some other haste buff.

Thanks!

Should be able to. When I PI it makes PoH 2.0 second cast, and I can easily cast SS, PI, then 5 casts of PoH with time to spare.
