    Need help healing as a Disc Priest in FL.

    Hey guys!

    I was healing FL last night for my guild and compared to the other healers i didnt really do well. My HPS was much lower and healing done aswell, Disc has alot of absorbtion and i was wondering if this would make my healing done much lower than other classes.

    this is an armory link to my priest, so you guys can check his gear. should there be a way to find out what HPS i should be geting.

    any input would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Erm this is a link to the other 2 healers that where in the raid:
    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...endeath/simple - belf paladin
    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...Valesis/simple - resto druid.

    Sadly i cant remember that exact numbers, but i was like 4-6K under them and more in heavy aoe dmg fights. I should use PoM and spam PoH but still couldnt keep up or get close to them.

    I was wondering if my aoe healing is done wrong...

    ok the gear part i understand, but with regards to raid healing, is PoM and PoH all i should use(with inner will)? coz i read that spamming bubble isnt worth the mph.

    If you're having to pull more than 14 or 15k on fights like H Rhy, with 2 healers, your raid/tank is taking way too much avoidable damage. We 2 heal it, me on my Pally and our Shammy and we're sitting at around 14k hps each. It's not your hps that's an issue, it's your raid being damage magnets.

    Gear and HPS don't mean much of of anything. (Meaning people won't outheal you just based on gear, and if they do the number probably doesn't mean much in a vacuum)

    And yes if you weren't tracking absorbs, your healing done would look a lot lower than other healers.

    Other than that, pretty much what Theotherone said.

    As for Rhyo, the healing is fairly simple. Get something to track when he's going to Stomp. Spark spawns, get a PW:S on the spark tank and pay attention to him. Fragments spawn, get a PW:S on the fragment tank. ~10 sec before a stomp start getting PoH/DA on as many groups as you can, then continue PoH after the stomp until people are topped. Penance for spot heals.

    Play very conservative in P1 though, as unless people are being...ahem..."damage magnets", there's really not much to heal. If you make it to P2, then you can just start pouring the mana out, get PW:S up on as many people as possible before he transitions, Power Infusion/Other Haste buffs/Spam PoH once he does transition.

    First, if you just absolutely have to look at a meter, get Skada, and set it to Heals and Absorbs. I can almost guarantee you that you will not be number three (in 10-man), most of the time--unless you're healing with two Pallys, which would be kinda "awkward".

    Second, please realize, at some point, that Disc healing is all about preventing and mitigating damage, not simply healing damage.

    Once you understand that, you can concentrate on what's really important, as a healer...figuring out what spells/combinations are going to keep your raid alive, long enough to down the Boss.

    I know that I am truly more happy, when I get a whisper, from a tank, who tells me they really notice when I'm not there to heal them, than I am when I look at a meter, and see my HPS is above 10k.

    My point is, look for who's in trouble, during a fight, and try your best to save them--at least long enough for the other healers to bring them back up, while staying focused on the tank(s). If your raid prevails, be happy!!

    In Firelands, particularly on Heroic difficulty, cooldown rotations are much more important than HPS. Baleroc is the only fight where I care about the meters. I'm typically around 56k for that fight as Disc. We pop lust for the first crystal and get me to heal a shadow priest who takes the full 25 stacks. I spam Penance and Flash Heal exclusively, getting in 3 Penance casts before the first crystal is gone (timed so the last Penance gets the most possible stacks). Once I have over 50 stacks (for Heroic, easily get over 100 stacks on reg) I stay on the tank full time. Mastery stacking leads to some crazy absorption on that fight.
