Why am I hard to heal?
02/13/2013 08:46 AMPosted by IhaulI read that I should spam FR for this fight and SD isn't necessary. Is this correct?

Pretty much this. Your biggest source of damage taken is going to be the bleed that the dogs apply. They reapply it every few seconds, so you're not going to be able to dodge it off (unless you get really really lucky). Their actual melee attack is puny. That leaves FR as your most effective rage-sink.
They instantly reapply the dot, it's not even a second in between (Stoneform barely resets the debuff, even if you time it "perfect", as my only evidence of this), and I'm 99% sure that the application isn't avoidable.

If he's tanking the one by its self NV is going to be largely useless. Hotw should be your default talent choice for the most part, only if there's a point during the fight where the boss takes more damage or you have huge amounts of vengeance for 30 seconds+ is nv better. Good examples are elegon and heroic windlord where NV is better. Not to mention a hotw tranq heals for like 80k and then does 45k ticks, its stupid.

HotW is terrible unless
A: You need the stamina.
B: You can safely leave bear form to make use of it (tranquility/cat form double-dip healing/caster or cat DPS).
Neither of the above is true for stone guard.
NV's +20% healing for FR is going to outweigh the pittance that is spamming rejuv on yourself from bear form during HotW. Even assuming the +20% damage and 25% damage->healing are worthless, NV is better just from the FR boost for stone guard.
If you're getting spiky just throw out a cooldown. Nothing really to save em for on that fight unless you're trying to clear Mines or something.
