Holy Radiance Bug

Bug Report
I was bored and was digging through some logs and I looked at our holy paladin's Holy Radiance healing, and it was only hitting 5 targets.

After looking more closely, the initial heal does nothing (at least not on logs) and hits 5 targets after the initial target. It looked like he was hitting 6 targets if he was in range of the Holy Radiance itself, though. I ran some test in Stormwind to further evaluate what was going on.

It looks like Holy Radiance only hits 5 targets and does NOT heal the initial target for any amount.

In this first log I cast a heal from >10 yards away from Gîlga in the AH:
[22:07:24.669] Tempo begins to cast Holy Radiance
[22:07:26.859] Tempo gains 1 holy power from Tempo's Holy Radiance
[22:07:26.859] Tempo casts Holy Radiance on Gîlga
[22:07:27.234] Tempo Holy Radiance Akromis +0 (O: 0, O: 12492)
[22:07:27.234] Tempo Holy Radiance Greengremlin +0 (O: 0, O: 13306)
[22:07:27.234] Tempo Holy Radiance Mephunter +0 (O: 0, O: 13510)
[22:07:27.234] Tempo Holy Radiance Holyhooker +0 (O: 0, O: 12534)
[22:07:27.234] Tempo Holy Radiance Sneakystephi +0 (O: 0, O: 11995)


As you can see it only hit 5 targets, but if I move into the <10 yard range and cast it:

[22:07:32.658] Tempo begins to cast Holy Radiance
[22:07:34.776] Tempo Holy Radiance Tempo +0 (O: 0, O: 12150)
[22:07:34.776] Tempo gains 1 holy power from Tempo's Holy Radiance

[22:07:35.118] Tempo Holy Radiance Sneakystephi +0 (O: 0, O: 12533)


It hits myself + 5 targets. Here's the log I used:
http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/0rsin2ems0z57nrc/xe/?x=spell+%3D+%22Holy+Radiance%22

Also did some testing with casting Holy Radiance on myself and on pets.
http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/ytimsi5jlk445u6m/xe/?x=spell+%3D+%22Holy+Radiance%22

If I cast Holy Radiance on myself, I get the initial heal + it hits 5 other targets, as expected.
[22:11:22.164] Tempo begins to cast Holy Radiance
[22:11:24.581] Tempo Holy Radiance Tempo +0 (O: 0, O: 25175)

Pets worked the same as a player; only hits 5 targets and does no healing to the pet; hits 6 including me if I'm in range.

Is this intended or am I missing something here? It should hit 6 targets regardless right? And the initial target should be getting healing?
Anyone have any ideas here?
Still seems to be an issue, any input/feedback is appreciated.
That's pretty consistent with my raid logs:
http://worldoflogs.com/reports/p45kokbzkup2je8y/xe/?x=spell+%3D+%22Holy+Radiance%22+and+sourcename+%3D%22Zaru%22

Sometimes it heals six in there, though.

However, in-game combat log always shows six people being healed when I spam HR in a pile of people. It looks like a WoL bug, something must be wonky with the HR change that it isn't picking up.

Does yours show six in-game?

edit - fixed log link, woops.
Just tested using the combat log.

It still only shows five targets:

Looked through your log and ya, it looks like it showed it a few times, but take a look here:
http://worldoflogs.com/reports/p45kokbzkup2je8y/xe/?s=9332&e=9347&x=spell+%3D+%22Holy+Radiance%22+and+sourcename+%3D%22Zaru%22

The first cast in this query, you cast HR onto Fred, but he received no healing from it, but 6 other targets DID receive the healing.
This brings up another question in addition to what's already been posted. Is the initial target supposed to count as one of the six being healed? Is the target even receiving healing? I'm seeing no Illuminated Healing on the target, and no healing is being shown in logs in-game or out.
Hm, I was seeing IH and healing on my initial target in-game, I'll log back on again and make sure I wasn't crazy.

Also, I talked to our other pally and he was looking through some unprocessed logs and found something interesting, I think he'll be posting it shortly.
When reading the combatlog (Heroic 25 Thok attempts, so positioning is accurate) prior to WoL processing it (with the noise taken out) in chronological order:

If you're in range of your HR target - you get healed (during casting looks like) + the 5 lowest (6 total).
If you're not within range of your HR target - the 5 lowest get healed (5 total).
If you cast it on yourself while standing in a group - the 5 lowest get healed, including yourself (6 total).
Even though this is a recurring event, it doesn't explain why sometimes it picks 6 targets other than yourself, maybe there is a certain condition that is met to have HR work properly and have it pick a 6th person and not yourself. Either way it looks like a coding error on Blizzard's part.
Okay so, I misread what your original post said, sorry!! I thought you meant it only healed six if you cast it on yourself. Looks like it only heals six if you're in range, which is what you said originally ^-^'

I went to the AH and spammed HR at "Carbonxoxide":

It looks like it doesn't always heal whoever you cast it on, but some times it does?

The patch notes said:

  • Holy Radiance now functions like a smart heal, healing the 6 most injured friendly targets within range, and minor guardians are no longer targeted (Wild Imps, Bloodworms, Snakes from Snake Traps, etc.). There has been no change to the total amount of healing granted by the ability.


  • So...Six most injured targets means if the initial target is he seventh or more healthiest he doesn't get healed I guess? But it's still only healing five, so.
    Testing Holy Radiance in town tonight and this is what I see as well.
    1. Myself only - Heals full amount on myself
    2. Me plus 1 - Heals full amount on whoever I target plus 50% to the other
    3. Me plus 1,2,3, or 4 - Heals full amount on whoever I target plus 50% to the rest
    4. Group of 5 without me - Heals full amount on target plus 50% to the other 4
    Those all seem to work the way I expected HR to act. Big single targeted heal and a 5 person 50% aoe smart heal around them.

    Then the results change in the next situations.
    5. Group of more then 6 without me - First off I never get more then 5 people healed at once. Secondly the target i cast HR on is not guaranteed to get a full heal or a 50% one. Third and maybe worst of all, sometimes I am not even getting a full heal on anyone. Just 5 half amount heals!
    6. Group of more then 6 including myself - First off I always get healed every time even with 15 plus people or if I take off half my gear thinking maybe it had to do with my high hit points. Understandable considering number 5 but definitely bugged. It is hard to test the following just watching numbers with too many people moving but I am not sure there is always a full heal on someone or if 6 are getting hit every time.

    We really need developers looking into this and giving it some attention. Hopefully some understanding will come around.
    I didn't see any full heals when I was spamming groups I wasn't standing in. But you said you did for sure see the full heal, and it wasn't just a crit? I was wondering if it had been removed inadvertently with the smart heal change.
    This was a late change on beta ptr. It was done to reduce lag.
    You're missing the point. Holy Radiance is behaving very erratically.
    Maybe I can not say 100% every time but I am getting full heals not being a part of smaller 1-5 person groups almost all of the time in town. Yes the full heal number is the same as critical half ones but the critical numbers are bigger on regular set up. Sometime the full heal crits for around 88-90k so there are some.
    Bump for justice
    still waiting...
    I seem to also be having this bug, though it does sometimes heal the initial target for me but still only 5 targets total and 6 when I'm in range of the heal.
    can confirm holy radiance is not working properly.
    need a fix right meowww~
    Can we please get a blue post to confirm/deny this bug?
    Fix please.
