Great Blessings on pets

Hunter pets, Warlock Felguard, Warlock Voidwalker have a ‘Warrior’ class now now. They receive greater blessings you cast on warriors, and other way around.

Other warlock pets (Succubus, Imp, Felhunter) have a ‘Warlock’ class. Same kind of functionality.

It’s interesting.. and somewhat useful.. but I would have preferred to class the melee pets with rogues. Since I [...]

Fun with math

AKA: Downranking with a vengeance

Flash of Light rank 1 costs 35 mana and heals between 67-77. It gets 19.00% effective coefficient from your +heal. I can cast it 10 times in 15 second. Meaning it’s costing me ~117 mana per 5 to cast it.

If I have greater than 117 mp5 then whatever it heals is [...]

Adding Judgement of the Crusader

Judgment of the Crusader – Unleashing this Seal’s energy will judge an enemy for 20 sec, increasing Holy damage taken by up to 190. Your melee strikes will refresh the spell’s duration.

Having mucked through the math to get nice line charts for Seal of Righteousness vs Seal of Vengeance.. it seemed just a shame to let that go to waste. That said.. I think my math is broken.

I added in Judgment of the Crusader to see how that would effect Seal of Righteousness.. and I’m kind of surprised by the results.

Edited: My math was fine.. my method was broken.

The “up to 190″ can be thought of as +spell damage that only shows up on Holy spells (your spells and the spells of others) as modified by the +spell coefficient on the holy spell being cast.

Plan of attack

So.. How do I squeeze the most DPS out of my holy pally?
Based on my toolset (ie, I’m not protection and not deep into Retribution) I should have a second set of gear that stacks on spell damage and spell crit.

I chose my build (51/0/10) very specifically be the best healer I can be and in solo to avoid the dilution of stats that seems to occur deep in the Retribution tree. As far as I can tell, I’ve grabbed the talents/abilities that favor spell damage and avoided those that favor melee stats. I also favored things the don’t add to my threat where possible (ie, choosing Blessed Life instead of going deeper into Retribution to get Eye for an Eye).

Spell damage looks to be the most overall useful.. but a crit is a crit. Intelligence and Stamina also figure high on my “want-to-have” list.

Phoning it in

I’ve read in a bunch of places that Pally healing is two-button healing. From the forums:

Pally Healing:
Bind 1 to Flash of Light, bind every other key to Holy Light.
Press 1, repeat.
In case of emergency, mash face on keyboard.

Maybe I’m doing it wrong.
