Over healing with beacon

Alright so the title says it all. I overheal a !@#$ ton with beacon. It should be affected by illuminated healing. If I need to heal someone besides my beaconed target then im wasting heals it feels like.

With that said id love to see my Bol target recieve my illuminated healing, even at a reduced percent so that im not wasting as many heals. Anyone agree?

We get to heal 2 people with all our heals (not just AOE heals).

Our overhealing actually does something...shields.

Sure it would be nice but do I think it's balanced? No.

True it might not be balanced. i do like the mastery shields. Is moving beacon during fights a good idea? Normally i drop it on the tank and heal everyone else. I know in certain fights its a great idea. Like the spirit phase of Gara. idk it was just something to think about though. Id like my beaconed target to receive full benifits from my heal, not just the direct heal

Yes, you should beacon switch. Some fights it's not necessary, others (like Gara as you mentioned) it's almost mandatory.

I did it on spine and was always top heals. I like t move it around still, but lately it seems like a waste of time.

I'd love to see beacon receive my mastery.

On some fights yes. On SG, Feng, SK and WoE I rarely beacon switch. However, Gara and Elegon I swap quite a bit.

In HoF I generally don't tank heal so on 2 tank fights I swap my beacon to the active tank as I generally am healing someone else besides him. On Garalon I swap my beacon to whoever is kiting atm. On amber shaper I swap to the active tank.

At the very least on fights with tank swaps you should move it around.

There's a school of thought which says you should take the glyph and move it around whenever you Divine Light. I think that's excessive though.
