Before I turn off my computer I seriously need to post couple of question to get my curiosity solved when I get back.
The more suitable question would be either,
1. Who is still a fan of 'Holy Shock Crit Chance' (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=60147
...link doesn't work right now, sorry) T7 2set bonus?
2. Who is a great fan of 'Infusion of Light' (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53576
I ask this because I still see a lot of question involving 'Which is the way to heal, FoL? or HL?'
I never thought my healing style as different compare to other fellow holy pallies. But the more I read post asking the way of holy paladin healing, the more I began to realize there are more than one way to heal as a paladin.
First off, I'll say that monotonous healing style is never the best way of healing. FoL spam (occasional HS), HL spam, both are not the way to heal effectively as a holydin.
We have fast heal (heal less), slow heal (chunk heal), instant heal for a reason. To be most effective, holydin should use every spell available to him (or her).
Secondly, I am a HUGE fan of 'Infusion of Light' (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53576
), which is why I love T7 2pc bonus so much.
I would have still kept the leg and hand pc if my guild hadn't bashed me for still having them, half jokingly, half seriously....they know I'm a good healer so they would have left me alone to my playstyle, but you know, it doesn't look pretty to have two ilvl 213 items when you run TotC Heroic 25 :P
The reason why I love 'Holy Shock Crit Chance' (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=60147
) is because it allows me versatile healing style when the situation changes.
When raiding you will not know what's going to happen next, who's going take dmg, who's going to take the debuff.
'Infusion of Light' (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53576
) allows me to quick heals to either dps taking dmg or OT getting low on health.
The recent change in 'Beacon of Light' (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53563
) has brought evolutionary effect on holy paladin healing. (I took a 2 month break, so its pretty much 'recent' to me, lol)
It allows holy paladin to Beacon the MT, and heal DPS on his (or her) leisure.
The one thing I noticed while I was raiding is that, it seems I'm the only healer who cares about other healers HP.
(Healers~~! I'm going to heal your squishy ass when you are getting pwned, so F'ing heal me when I'm too busy to heal myself because I'm healing the MT and OT at the same time.)
Also, on TotC 3rd boss, cleasne damn it~~! dispell magic, cure poison, whatever ! use your head!.
.............................ok................/rant off *cough*)
Sorry, for misleading the post. All I'm trying to say is holy paladin healing is not just about spamming certain heals. Our job is not to just spam heal on the MT, but to keep the raid going while we heal the MT.
I would love to hear other fellow holy paladins' opinion. But be gentle :P
