Melting Pot

 Hmmm..recipe for 10 man raid says.

2 tanks, 2-3 healers, and the rest of the raid to consist of a mix of ranged and melee DPS. Mix well and serve over ice.

Now I dont know about tanks…I assume you can take any 2 and you will be fine.

For DPS will want a  good mixture of both.

Healers….hopefully your guild has a good mixture of people you can bring into the raid for a variety of heals, abilities, and buffs.

In Shadow Rising:

1 Holy Paladin off spec Ret

3 Resto Shamans, I think all 3 have a DPS off spec

1 Holy/Disc Priest

2 Disc/Shadow Priests

0 Resto Druids

I am sure if you take 3 resto shaman…probably be ok. Especially if it is the 3 resto shaman we have in Shadow Rising. (Hex, Slopole, and Sorak), but will be missing some pretty sweet buffs for the raid.

However, all the healing classes besides their buffs and spells, provide the raid with variety. This being  how they “heal”  also benefits the raid.

You have Holy Paladin’s heal bombing targets, Resto Druids padding the raid with HoTs with lovely HoTs, Resto Shaman doing what resto shamans do (I have no idea how they heal), Disc Priests – hitting one button: Power Word: Shield (yum dmg mitigastion), and Holy Priests…helping with AoE heals.

 Having a good mixture of healers, will in my opinion cut down the stress on your healing team. Taking 3 holy paladins…I am sure can be done…but might be a bit hectic. While swapping in a resto shaman and priest will help not seeing health bars dropping down too far. (dmg mitigation > direct heal imo)

Got incoming AoE dmg…Bubble, CoH, a pre-cast PoH, a druids HoTs will help out.

Know your tank is going to get hit hard real fast? Holy Pally!, PW:S, ES?

Got that DPS who like to Whirlwind? PW:S, ES or some HoTs. Beacon?? LOL

In this game, variety is good. 🙂 Trust me.

Also WTB Resto Druid pst! paying well…we haz Pie and Tir.

And today I have not messed up with the reply system. 🙂

    I have a Holy Pally as an offspec for my tankadin…

    Healing is fun, (so far) actually, though I’ve never really beeen in a sitch where healing performance was critical.

    I know Pallies are good at the “LIVE, GOD DAMN YOU!!” Tanks-are-getting-planets-dropped-on-them encounters, and I’ve seen some really impressive things out of them.

    But jesus does everything go to hell quick if there’s any sort of AOE involved.

    But yeah. I really like that hea healing classes in the game each have their own special niche, and while you can get by okay with one kind in any situation (generally) specific combos can really shine. Just another of the many way that WoW Does Not Fuck Up.

    I’m slloowwwlllyyy building a semi-decent healing set with leftover Triumph badges. Like I said I don’t hate it so far, so yay!

    It does get boring tho. >.>
