This leads to a lot more deaths than if someone else was channeling a different raid cd.


Ah, but it doesn't, because you can drop Revival into your AoE rotation without skipping a beat.

I'll admit, it's somewhat clunky, and if it did around the same total healing as HTT it would obviously be far inferior. But given that the baseline healing is so high, I don't hesitate in calling it the strongest throughput CD of the four.


Also it runs into the issue that although it's strong in terms of raw output, in 25 mans it's not substantial on any one person. that one person that's 10$ lower than the rest of te raid and in danger of dying won't get 2 ticks. Everyone gets the same amount.(about) in a 25 man, it's not a raid cooldown so much as just a basic hps cooldown like cascade for a priest.

True, but it's still a metric !@#-ton of healing.

Oh no doubt, it's just not a true raid cd in that situation. No one's gonna say "oh god we're all at 10k health LET'S HAVE THE MONK HIT REVIVAL AND WE'LL ALL BE BETTER!!!" It's just kind of quietly used as part of the rotation. That's where it's sort of fail compared to most other raid cds. Yet it does fit the monk healing style. Uncontrollable.

I don't know that you'd say that about any raid CD in a 25 man, though. With that many people to heal, none of them really qualify as an "oh !@#$!" button.

In 10s, however, Revival is the "oh %^-*!" button. It's an 140k to every raid member.
