MW RBG Healing
Posted 10 March 2014 - 03:26 PM
I feel like I am not utilizing orbs enough during RBG's but I'm not sure if orbs are the answer.
I keep renewing up on cooldown (4+ people have it usually)
I have enveloping up and chi wave, expel on cd.
I think my issue is using surging mist to heal too much.
What do others do in RBG's? Do you orb a lot in team fights? Does the orb get picked up by others you are trying not to heal too often?

I don't know how your gear looks like, but in full grievous you should have more than enough tea generation just by your ~30% crit alone. Renewing on CD is correct, enveloping is nice for prehotting, but bad vs burst. Zen Spheres are an option if you meet a lot of spread pressure, which can be overwhelming for a lot of newer monks, while Chi Wave is the highest burst heal of the Tier and usually my default choice. Expel on CD for Chi generation, yup. Something else I've lately used more often (again) is Chi Torpedo vs stacked party members. It's especially helpful cause it can be used while being blanketed or even inline-CSed.
Edit: Something I still need to improve myself is: Your team mates don't need to be completely topped to be fine. If one is under pressure, and kiting, and you heal him to 70% with Env up, or orbs near, there is no need to heal him for another 30%, but instead you can switch to the next target, etc.

Now to just find a team that doesn't consist of oqueue all-stars.

If another healer is in a full kidney then freecasting surging mist only ensures that you'll get locked out or go oom. In the mean time the people who need direct heals the most are ones in full stuns like that, which means they aren't moving, which means using orbs is a good method. If someone is in a smoke bomb they'll likely die if you don't orb. The only time you'll need to focus on spreading hots is when facing some kind of dot cleave where your hpal is being trained or he's using some 3s healing rotation. Using renewing mist on cooldown and some envelopings/uplifts is a no brainer, it's just a fraction of healing though.
It just takes doing what you have to do to be versatile; using nameplate addons or binding orbs to space bar. If you want a nameplate addon setup I outline one here: http://www.arenajunk...s-hunter-comps/
There's nothing particularly wrong with gemming all spirit and using surging mist to heal, then using the chi to uplift. It's just not the best strat IMO.

I must say I really disagree with not using healing spheres in rbgs, they are completely insane in my opinion. Once you get good with them you never have a problem hitting the right target. My renewing mist is usually around 20-25% of my healing and I pop atleast 100-200 spheres per game.
The initial problem I had with the monk healing in the start of season 12 was mainly using too much surging mist. What I do now is instead is just using healing sphere on the focused target which makes it almost impossible for the enemy team to kill it unless you get cced. I only use surging mist when I pop thunder focus tea.
Hope it helped, poke me if you have more questions or watch some of my vods or when I stream rbgs. 2400+ cr

Never surging without Thunder
never thunder to renew hots unless its pure dot cleave
only orb in super desperate situations
