[Question] How to heal raids?

#1 » Post by Raxxo » 06 Jul 2013 16:40

Hey everybody,

I would like to take up a healing class, but I always wondered how healers keep tab on 24 other raid members when healing a raid.
I am aware of a addon called HealBot, but I can't use it (yet).
Can anybody tell me how to heal without HealBot or how to use HealBot?
Thanks in advance.

Full healing guide:

> roll shaman
> target random party member
> spam chain heal from beginning to end of fight
> brag about your HPS
teh char list ( 80s ) :
Jynx / Zubat / Alyce ( Swagmourne ) / Discord / Redtube
Disruption / Perplexity / Magejkdruid / Swagstormxqt ( Swagmobile )
Vinegar ~ Lvl 51 Rogue

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Or

>Roll Pally (doesn't matter which spec)
>Invite only MDPS
>Do JoL
>Kick the Disc priest for doing less HPS than you

But really, there's probably two ways of healing. Blanket heal everyone, or just wait till someone loses health and select them, and then heal. I mean, it's a pretty simple concept.

Does someone need healing? If yes, heal them. If they need a big heal, do the big heal.

and you don't really need Healbot to heal....
you could use Xperl UI, that's what i use... i find it better than healbot
and like bluebell said, go for efficient healing, don't look at heal recount....
if you don't, you'll just end up burning your mana, and if something happens and you're the only healer left, you won't have enough mana to spam heals everywhere to save raid :p

Im healing on all healing classes and using only default UI to heal ... Just drag the raid frames into your main interface to be able to quickly select them and that's pretty much all.

That's exactly what I do.. Make sure you click "Range in raid interface" so that you know if you're close enough to heal.

Well I use VuhDo, shows incoming heals so I can ignore certain targets at certain times, and Decursive for dispels and cleansing. As for "how to heal with XYZ addon" there are umpteen guides available everywhere, just pick one and read it.
Apart from Heal Bot, you have Grid/Clique, VuhDo, Healium, etc. Experiment a bit ;)

I use Xperl, so I'll give it a try when I'm 80.
Just click the guy on the raid frame who needs heals.
Sounds simple enough :D

You know that high HPS is about stealing heals: who heals low HP targets faster (steal that heal) gets higher HPS. If you wanna merge absorbs with heals, no class can ever beat a Discipline's HPS especially if it's an encounter with no AoE damage, because obviously the Discipline's shields will be stealing your heals (as absorbs).

No class can ever beat disc priests when it comes to absorbs + heals because the disc priest is the only class/spec that does efficient absorbs at all. It is pointless to mention absorbs + heals when there's absolutely no other reference.

I agree that HPS competition is about stealing heals, though.

And Bluebelle was being sarcastic, i think, maybe.

Nah you rig the HPS recount so it doesn't show absorbs.
