A couple questions about WoD holy:
- is there even any reason to ever use holy light? It heals the same as fol, but doesn't have the glyph, so unless mana is an issue, it's worse than fol in every way.
- how do you survive being trained by more than 2 dps? even in random BGs, I feel totally helpless when 4+ guys go on me, it's simply impossible to cast anything with that amount of interrupts going on.
- how good is glyph of merciful wrath on 100?
- level 100 talents? Are they good and which one is commonly used for 3s/RBGs?
Holy Light = Faster flash of Light with less mana.
WoG = Free flash of slightly better Light.
Flash of Light = Worse flash heal of all healer because of Beacon(s) taxe and Mastery.
Holy light is just the spell to use after a proc if you want to minimize the risk of being counterspelled. But yeah the healing model is not as fun as MoP, where we had to heal smartly. (Switching beacon all the time, put Eternal flame on everyone to have more healing, use EF on no-beacon people to heal 2 people for free.). In WoD, it will be a flash of light fest.
Honestly, i think we can't survive being trained by 2 peoples if we are alone and without a perfect fake casting and/or Avenging Wrath, we HAVE to be protected by our mates. Especially with the new server latency, less tolerent with kicks and cs. I planned to play ww/dk (frost or uh)/pal, and training hpal will be i think a really good strat.
Perhaps the merciful wrath glyph (the one who reduce everything by 50% right?) can help, i don't know. We have lot of good glyph this xpac, so it will be hard to choose = beacon, flash, denounce, freedom, holy shock, m.wrath...
The level 100 talent are all good for arenas. My favorite is Saved by the light for the moment. Beacon of faith will be in my opinion better against dotcleave (if they exist of course, combined with purity) and in RBG, and Beacon of Insight can be useful but is really clunky to use. The last time i tried, it bounces on every heal, even from your mates.
I'm afraid that "Train the Pink" will be the new trend
(And please welcome the prot war in the "i can dispel all your gameplay" club.)
But don't forget we have forbearance at 30s at level 100, so we can survive more than others (with BoP/Divine Shield), even with our pityful heals. Shaman and monks doesn't have this. So, don't be sad
Of course it's only my opinion, perhaps i'm totally wrong. It's hard to test on beta because people don't want to try others things, and talents. I don't know about monks (all spec), shaman because i didn't face any of them.
