well it happened got benched couldnt compete with are priest so the raid leader and gm benched me. i dont understand why i thought i was doing a good job. maybe someone can look at wol and tell me what im doing wrong. if im not doing anything wrong maybe you can help prove to the raid leader that i was doing my job right. but if u do this maybe you should help prove your point with links to other wol and other sites you got your info form, because well i tried to argue several points as to why i shouldnt have been benched. ty for your time.

Taking a quick look at your logs I didn't see anything standing out to me. Could it be you guild is trying to move to two healing? Comparing any healer to a disc priest at the moment is a exercise in futility. Currently their absorbs are making many healers seem weaker then they are. Good Luck

Without the raid leader's reasoning behind benching you, and without the context to go with those logs, it's hard to really say much. Like, for example, if you have any special assignments on a fight, I can't really tell from a log if you are doing them or not. You could also be cherry picking this particular log.

It's also entirely possible that your raid leader puts too much stock in overall healing and doesn't realize how strong discipline priests are right now, especially on those particular fights, and especially on normal modes. It's normal for healing meters to look significantly more lopsided than damage meters.

You're not using uplift at all... which is why your healing is pretty absymal. Uplift is amazing and is the main reason why Renewing Mists should be cast on cooldown, so Uplift can hit the most targets at any one time.

You also need to reforge for the 3145 haste cap as well, being that close to the breakpoint is actually detrimental to Renewing Mists due to it lasting shorter, making it harder to spread.

I think what you mean to say is:

Bro, do you even... uplift?

Frankly dear, I think it's a waste of your time to "prove" anything. You know why? You shouldn't have to. You pay to play this game for your own enjoyment, and you have performed your role in the raid groups before. Clearly your guild / GM has quite the elitest outlook, and treats their "guildmates" with such little respect... I'm sorry they have benched you, merely because they are lazy in seeking the easiest way through things, or in a more direct way of putting it - following the hype that Discipline Priests are OP right now, and therefore, want to progress as much as possible before the nerf "ruins" their spec.

I've been personally told that Holy Paladins are weak and I shouldn't play one, to re-roll a Disc Priest... What they don't know, is that I happily heal using my Holy Priest. I'm sorry, I don't listen to hype, gossip, trolling, or ignorance. You should do the same.

You should find a guild that will treat you kindly, and allow you to enjoy the raiding experience you're already paying for. Don't let people tell you that one class is better than the other, or that your class is crap, we want this one - etcetera. Play what you love and enjoy, and play it for you. I really do hope you seek a new guild, because being treated like that is ridiculous, my friend.

You don't uplift and your guild seems to three heal fights you can two heal. Your enhancement shaman drops a whole lot of extra healing for some reason and having a prot pally will further suppress your overall healing.

Long-time co-healer in my guild has always been a Holy Priest. Last week he got talked into trying Disc. For the past four months of t14, the two of us were mostly even. Sometimes I'd outheal him, sometimes he'd outheal me. Going Discipline really changed that on some of the fights!!

Is he benching you to replace you with another disc priest? I don't know how effective two disc priest in a 10 are going to be TBH. I'd be interested to see some logs of that if anyone have some handy

I honestly don't see the point of bringing two Disc Priests to a 10 man. All it's going to do is breed annoyance. One will still be far behind the other.

Kaels' holy priest co-healer would sometimes troll him by bubbling the tank on farm content in Dragon Soul.

You are raiding with a Disc priest and a Holy Paladin. I truly feel for you. With the bottom of my heart. Both Disc and Paladins operate on absorbs with my Illuminated healing doing a whopping 24% of my healing.

I really don't think its a player issue. I think its a comp issue. In a paladin/priest comp, the third healer (which is often not needed this tier) is going to look remarkably low. If they benched you for low HPS with that comp, then they aren't very intelligent. More than likely, their reasons for benching you were due to just not needing a third healer.

As for Uplift, this is probably your biggest snipe heal and should be used whenever possible. Our monk and myself compete constantly. He's getting better with his uplift snipes, totally rendering my HA useless on some fights, and we have "Bwahaha" fights over /healers when we one up each other.

But then wouldn't they have asked him to respec first? I don't really get the mentality of kicking out one of your raid group (aside from something like griefing, massive mechanics fails, or being a huge jerk), it seems to me it's the leader's responsibility to make it work for the people who are depending on them for leadership.
