Thoughts on Holy pre-patch

Just real fast.
So, yeah once I kinda figured it out I have to say I like it for the most part. HW: Serenity hits like a truck.
Incidentally I was wrong about some stuff in my pre-pre-patch look and I'll redo that work later.

I've learned that complaining and saying "I'd do it this way" is pretty pointless but never the less I do have a few words about the Talents.

The level 15 row is fine. The level 30 one though, it's just so odd to see movement talents mixed with a self heal OSB. Instead we could maybe have something that alters how Leap of Faith works, like the old glyph that changed it to pull the caster and had a small healing buff.

Level 45 is whatever, its a leveling talent and then your raiding talent. Shining Force is a silly spell. How about a silence for once? Whatever.

60 is a good tier. Good choices that are sorta related. This is a well done tier.

75. So this is the one that I am most interested in changing. Healing without Binding Heal just feels like a tool went missing from my toolbox. I miss it and honestly the 3s reduction to both HW's would be a nice thing to have baseline. This would also give you another choice in the AOE category besides just PoH. "But you can take it as a talent" Well, sure. Surge of light however is simply too good. Free, instant Flash Heals? They reduce HW: Serenity by 6s, not 3, they are free, and they work well with Trial of Light. And they are free.
So I would love it if Bind was returned to our base kit and desperate prayer was moved to where bind is. Or really it doesn't matter what you put there because SoL is awesome.

Finally on the 90 row I would move Divinity. It just doesn't fit there. Put Circle Heal there and give us a row that insures we have a second healing spell. Plus, choosing between circle, star, and halo is actually a good choice as they all do roughly the same thing in different ways.

But then what do you do with divinity? Put it on the same row as Apotheosis? Sure why not? Either HWs give a healing buff or once every three minutes you can boost the rate at which they can be cast. Now thats real choice.

Also, why do we have shackle undead? WHY?????

Fast and dirty look at pre-legion-post-wod Holy Priest

Without the artifact and using last Tiers gear we are only getting a vague idea of what the Holy Priest will look like in full Legion Raid Regalia. And as I shall use the most wishy of the washy napkin math here this will not be a very thoughtful nor accurate examination of what is in store.

With all that in mind I can say that I am excited for the first time in a long time. Holy is looking good it must be said.
Shall we dive in?

Preparing for Legion

With Legion looming on the horizon and the great Sippy Cup Mythic Experiment a seeming success it is time to begin to mentally prepare for an actual season of Mythic raiding. HFC saw us dip our toes and eventually belly flop into the pool of serious raiding and now it seems that there is a hunger for even more.
