Priest heals meh?
Return to board index
Alright so I've just got my priest to 90 and I've noticed its mana pool as well as heals aren't fantastic. They're actually quite low grade. I've heard they require alot of good gear, is this true? And if it isn't, please tell me whats going wrong and how I could fix it. I have a level 87 shaman which seems to heal nearly the same amount as my priest. Please tell me if I should switch over or just continue to gear up. Thanks
not going to get much help unless you tell people what sort of priest you are disc / holy.
Im a disc priest. I have almost a 496 iLvl but I can barely heal.
Well, if you want to purely heal then disc is the wrong spec for you, you need to go holy. Disc is an offensive damage dealing healing class, the more damage you output the more healing you do, and yes the spec is very gear dependent. They also use absorption, again the more damage you do the bigger the shield that gets applied which is where mastery comes in.
It all comes down to whether you are want to purely heal, ie. shamans, resto druids, holy paladins or whether you want a change up which is where disc comes in.
Try out a holy off spec :) my main is a holy priest! Try healing a few BG's in holy, figure out what spells to use, what they do, when to use them ect. I leveled my priest from 1 to 85 as a disc priest! Once MoP came out I switched to holy and found it more to my liking and I dont mean to brag, (who wouldnt but) I get told my heals are amazing! Seeing iv done alot of pvp healing as holy, PvE healing is more simple and quiet easy! Disc priests are good healers, most find it fun, personally I find it boring, holy seems more of a challenge and I love it! but you should try both out and find which one you like the most! Noxxic and Ask Mr.Robot will help with your gear and talents, glyphs ect! Also holy priest once you figure it out can gain a lot of mana while in combat as in disc to but they can keep their mana better then holy! Dics is a dps healing, holy is AOE healing, with single target aswel once you learn how to use chakras, they can also do a tiny bit of dps, I use for 2's and BG's! In the end its what spec suits you the best! Have fun with finding out what interest you! Any questions just ask!
