No pre 83 healing and a question.

Paladin
First don't heal before level 83 in cata... it will be really hard.
Now for the question: Does our lv 83 aoe healing spell benefit from wings? I think it does from Inqusition.. if so...can I stack them?
Inquisition only affects Holy damage, not healing.
Haha, I think you've gotten it a bit mixed up. I'm finding it harder (relatively, not actually hard) to heal as I level as my mana costs go up and my crit and haste ratings get worse.

But yes, wings do work.
Wishfull thinking on my part >.<

I don't see wings being worth the pop just for that unless it happens to be during a time wher I need the wings. I love the new healing mechanics and enjoy having to work for my mana and keep people alive. Thanks for the great information folks.

Wings is definitely worth popping during times of heavy damage for healers. It's not the be-all end all of cooldowns, certainly, but don't ignore it just because one spell doesn't become uberawesome when you use it.
Hmmm i have run plenty of randoms so far and never had any problems with anything. Last night i even ran BRC while noming on a burrito and healing with one hand and still had no problems.

Edit: Gonna go run some Stonecore tonight to see if things get harder, but i don't think i will have any issues.
/facepalm.

I've been healing instances since 80. Absolutely no issues so far, mana is becoming a slightly more important issue as i lvl up but nothing game breaking thus far.

I really ought to stop reading the wow forums, some of the stuff on here is just... guhhhh
Healing was fine pre-83.

Holy Radiance does not make/break the game in FIVE MANS while leveling.

/facepalm
No no, you have it backwards. Healing past 83 is hard, healing before that is actually just complicated, but not hard. I stopped running dungeons after I hit 83 because I don't want to deal with going oom in pugs.

Please do heal in those first few levels. It will give you an idea of how each level gain effects you and what people need to do for you to successfully keep them alive.
I was so used to spamming FoL, Cata healing was a wake up call. New Holy dynamics are great. I was struggling until I started using Beacon of Light and Holy Radiance.

Thats pretty much how i see it. Healing is all the same technique wise 80-83 you just have to learn how to manage your mana as you get further along.

I've been abusing the crap out of light of dawn hehe, using the hp generation from healing the tank and using radiance and LoD to heal everyone else, so far so good and i stay above 80% mana until someoen pulls aggro. Ahhh well I like the new holy pally, spamming Holy light on the tanks without a care in the world was pretty boring
Is healing really different now? Before Cata, Healadins spammed HL. After Cata...

...well, Healadins spam HL.


You have to watch your mana a little, you get WoG/LoD when you stock your HP, FoL is a potent heal, and HS is useful (if for nothing else, it generates HP and gives you an instant heal as a bonus. :D)

...but mostly you're still spamming HL. Just now you hit something else once in a while. It's not really different than before other than your other spells got buffed enough to be useful...but with the caveat that they will OOM you if you are too careless with them.

I understand that the 50% transfer of Beacon seems to be underwhelming, but it transfers 50% of EVERYTHING (excluding heals directly on the Beacon target.)

Please, my friends, make full use of Beacon of Light. It's SOOOO worth it.
