You aren't getting my point the person who said they could get more mana from rapture doesn't even correctly use it.
Over the course of a fight where mine was 10 seconds shorter I got 3:2 ratio on rapture, so you can't tell me you want more spirit just for rapture if you aren't even going to use it.
What logs are you looking at, anyway? The only logs we have up are alt runs and normal mode content. None of our heroic content is up except for Tortos, I think?
This again goes back to spell selection and retards. In normal mode guilds like yours you have to account for a larger error, stacking more spirit. Where I am, we make mistakes obviously, but I don't have to go spam healing retards that stand in things like 'most' normal mode guilds.
Curious what your H Council strat will be? Because you end up "spamming retards" a lot in that fight. It's kind of the strat. I know we couldn't heal through the "mechanics as designed" and I somehow doubt that a 10 man will be able to, given that they appear to be inflicting the same amount of damage. Then again, maybe you won't have the option to brute force it. Dunno.
It definitely has to differ fight from fight say heroic iron qon where you have to blow all your throughput first dog and last phase, and say heroic horridon where you don't really have to heal all that much until last phase as a disc priest.
Must be the differing raid sizes. I have enough to heal to maintain a solid 40k for the first part of the encounter, with large spikes once a minute.
Two healing also helps. If you haven't two healed every fight Atleast on normal this tier then you have no place to tell me I need to stack plethorical amounts of spirit.
Obviously you need more spirit in 25 mans, but why 16k ??
I dunno, man, maybe they have different healing requirements? We were 6 healing Council, with a Blood DK, AND three Shadow Priests offhealing, AND Healing Rain/AG from an Ele Sham, and it was still very touch-and-go at the end. Moreso, I'll grant you, because if you got Frostbite after the first one, we had to let you die as the healers will OOM otherwise.
