    Need some help about buffs

    What healer class are you?

    And all classes have a buff spell that only works on 1 player, then cant remember what lv it is, think its lv 40 you get a spell that works on all the party and raid.
    But this spell costs regents that can be bought of a regent vender.
    What type of regent. Read the info of the spell

    The best way to do buffs for any class imo is ZOMGBuffs. here are some reasons why:

    1. Pallys - take less screen space than PallyPower and communicates with PP
    2. Hot buttons for Sacred Shield / Beacon of Light or any other re-castable buff
    3. Auto buy reagents at any vendor to your preset level
    4. Auto learning based on your play style and can setup templates for raids / 5 mans and such.

    Pretty much this is a much needed utility for any class that buffs. Additionally it will show all the buffs that are going out raid-wide so if you are the raid buff leader you can see what classes / players are getting and change as needed.

    The ability to have the HOT buttons for your re-castable buffs like for my pally - Sacred Shield and Beacon of Light means that I can have a button on the screen next to Grid that I just click on to recast that buff on the target. Need to change targets one time - no problem just change then use the HOT button to recast on your original target.

    Check it out.

    No for as how to buff - as stated above each class has buff specific to them. Typically in a raid you see this:

    1. Kings / Wisdom / Might from pallys (Sanctuary on Prots but that is self buff)
    2. Arcane Intell from Mages
    3. Fort / Spirit from Priests
    4. Mark of the Wild from Druids

    These are your basic buffs that have a long duration and get refreshed at intervals.

    Smaller duration buffs include but not limited to:

    1. Guardian Spirit aka Wings
    2. Divine Protection - aka Pally Wings
    3. Blessing of Protection
    4. Hand of insert all the pally hand spells here
    5. Others I might have missed.

    These are smaller in duration and are situational in their use. Wings is used to shield a target from damage as is #2 and #3 with BoP being used on DPS or other members besides the tank. ( BoP your highest DPS during a boss fight for fun sometimes)
    The Hand spells do similar things but are not widely used as they are situational as well.

    This is a short and not complete list of things to buff in a raid from my viewpoint.

    No, BoSanc is not a self buff. It can be cast on all raid members and should be for certain fights

    Divine Protection is a self buff, not one to be cast on others. Also, Pally Wings is used to refer to Avenging Wrath, not Divine Protection.

    1. I meant that only prot pallys buff that one.

    2. Right , sorry I meant to use Divine Guardian but not alot of pallys spec that either as it is situational as well.

    And AW yes is called wings as well or as I like to macro - "Popping a Red Bull cause I got wings!!!!"
