Thanks gentleman! :)
holy priest, Cascade vs halo?
Divine Star is good and potent for its short CD, Casacde has a tendency to not be very effective.
Jin'rokh - Divine Star
Horrdion - Cascade
Tortos - Halo
Megaera - Divine Star
Ji-Kun - Divine Star for nests halo if not nest (or cascade if ten man)
Durumu - Cascade
Primordious - Halo
Dark Animus - Cascade
Iron Qon - Divine Star
Twin Consorts - Does it matter for these guys? O.O
Lei - Shen - Divine Star if struggling with transition damage, Halo otherwise.
Your fellow healers could also affect the effectiveness of Cascade. If your co-healers are good at topping people off, rather than absorbs, the last jumps of Cascade could have a lot of overhealing, unless in continuous heavy aoe damage phases.
It also depends on the size of raid. For example, for our 25 Dark Animus, I'd use Halo, because I noticed half of the Cascade jumps ended up healing pets. When I heal 10m, I'd have less concern of pet healing with Cascade.
The stupid Warlock portals
Jin'Rock - Divine Star
Horridon - Divine Star
Council - Halo
Tortos - Halo (as it builds shields I use right before the stomp)
Ji'kun - divine star
Iron Quon - Halo
(Those are the only ones I have done heroic)
I pretty much follow the same pattern.
Durumu - divine star (helps while running)
Promethius - Divine Star
Twins - halo
and final boss I use Divine Star again.
Hope that helps. here is a list of World of Logs so you can see the reason for eachs effectivness. They have also ranked me and they were mostly my top heals.
Lie Shen 10N
I have other ranks, however, I didn't want to post to many.
I generally just use Halo.
People who don't like Mastery as Holy make me sad. :(
I love halo.
I mainly use it for fights like tortos (for both disc and now for holy on heroic) it's just so spiffy looking :o I feel like a little nuclear blast of heals.
(I've thought about going crit for holy just because I mainly do disc :P)
My husband puts all of our kills up at www.youtube.com/raidhealing He is the MW monk and im the Holy Priest.
I choose crit over mastery, because mastery just sucked. My husband also heals on MW monk but also runs his holy priest. He went crit and I was mastery.... His barely geared toon was killing my mastery.... So I swapped to crit.... Now I have killer heals again, mastery is like asking to be a druid. As a holy priest I dont just use sanctuary I use serinity to. I stance dance in many fights. We have 2 druids already. Staying crit over mastery allows my heals to be massive and they still allow my echo of light at the top.
Mastery does not suck. If Mastery "sucks," you're doing it wrong.
My Mastery HoT is often my top heal in progression fights. It is amazing.
Also, since you're raiding 25 mans, why are you in Serenity at all? Why are you doing single-target heals? Holy Priests in a 15 man setting are raid healers, not tank healers. Why you would stance dance and gimp your throughput is beyond me when that shouldn't be your role in a 25 man setting.
By the way, your heals weren't "awesome" because you're gemming pure Spirit in 536 gear. If you gemmed for throughput instead of pure Spirit (which you could do if you weren't taking non-Spirit gear), you'd be doing a lot better.
