So I’m playing League of Legends for the first time in ages… it’s my first time using the Team Builder function and I found this funny.

I main support.

So, my guild got Blackfuse down! They tried a different strat and had me on the sidelines. Kinda sucked after the 150+ wipes I did with them, but I'm happy they got it :3 Onto Paragons! Probably benched for that too, but it's cool. Any tips? <3 Also, I love your layout, I want it!

Oh, well grats to your guild! Sorry to hear you got benched. I was benched for when my guild progressed on Siegecrafter too; we simply had too many healers (fortunately I didn’t really need any loot from that fight).

And thanks! I’m quite happy with my current theme. (:

As for Paragons (my favorite fight on heroic!): this fight is very reliant on individual player skill (gotta dodge that Rapid Fire)…

I’m a rogue, so with aim, I’m always closes to the person being aimed for my feint, mages right by the boss, hunters in the middle area. We have about 6 hunters total in the entire raid team (30 people), but only 4 made it last night. We were kinda scrapping for bottom of the barrel raiders because some issues came up with some cores and the trials (me still, lol) had to be brought along. I’ve basically upgraded every single piece I could to try and have at least SOME usefulness in this fight. So far we are getting up to the Korven/Hisek split dps to get Hisek trapped and then burn Korven. So I’ll kinda just go from start to where we got up to.. *Second night of attempts*

We try to number the parasites to make sure either we have to eat 2 each for the first set, or we only have to eat one for the entire thing. If we do get extras after the last set is done, we’d just get the stunners (So my kidney shot), and some warrior stuns while the range just knock it out.

Our positioning is we take Bloodseeker down to the entrance and then once he is dead, we move onto Dissector which is to the right. Range sit around the door way/to the left of there.

Once those two are down and Korven lands, Korven is taken to the left side where the range were, melee (except myself) jump onto Korven, I go with the range and hit on Hisek. This is the furthest we got last night. We ended up on a literal 50/50 split and as Korven hit 50% (From too many dots), Hisek hit 51%

We do have a bit of an issue with the aim. A lot of the time it’s the hunters or mages who get aimed. When we first started working on this fight, I was told to be in “Melee range of the aim”, so I assumed that was melee range of the BOSS, but it was actually the person being aimed. We fixed that up. I’m good with dodging Rapid Fire, cloak with the 40.5s CD if I’m trying to push as hard as I can, but other times, I’m good to dodge easily.

We’re still trying the best we can. Trying again Wednesday night and hopefully we can get something to work for us and get some more progression in.

I’ve only just replaced my Flex Haromm’s trinket with normal TED from Blackfuse. But I still run normal to get at least a chance at WRF items to replace my NM ones. And a flex BoA >_< Gonna get a Garry kill tonight in hopes of replacing that.

Thank you for the advice! I’ll pass it onto my guildies and yeah! ^_^ /cheer

Rogues are so, so very useful on this fight. c:

Unfortunately as a healer I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to our Parasite management. I know that we encourage those mutated to eat 2 if they can, though, and we often have to stop or slow DPS on Dissector so that we get another (I think its the 4th cast, but I could be wrong) set of Mutations. 

If hunters and mages are getting aimed, that’s a good thing since both of those classes can drop the effect with Feign Death and Invis respectively (although mages can’t do this nearly as often). As for soaking, you just have to be in the yellow line between the target and Swarmkeeper. You don’t want to be on top of other people soaking either, as each person hit by aim also causes AoE damage to those nearby. 

The trick to Prime is to communicate how low each of those two bosses are getting so that you don’t push Prime too soon. Make sure your raid is making the most of vent/mumble/etc! 

Good luck with Garry loot tonight! :D

I’m a Disc priest and I fear it, haha. Gonna go Holy since I hear it’s good! I don’t care about meters, I just wanna feel useful. ;v; I’m working on my little resto druid, though! I love her.. but she’s a worgen. omg dem Chihuahua eyes.

My priest is disc, and while I’m not a huge fan of holy, I can see myself enjoying it just fine.

I’m mostly just glad that the level 90 priest talents are getting nerfed. The difference in 25m that having divine star on Garrosh for the disc in my guild (vs. Cascade, because he often forgets to swap after Paragons) is at least 200k HPS… and that’s pretty ridiculous. 

Resto druids are awesome (totally no bias there)! I was really tempted during Cata to race change my druid to a Worgen for the racial since night elf racial is currently pretty useless in PvE… but now I’m glad that I didn’t. c: 

The Night Elves are so pretty, don’t change.

While I play Worgen, I pretty much only ever see them from the rear, so the face, while terrifying, doesn’t bother me much… :3

<insert comment about Druids to remain on topic>

Honestly the worgen’s face has never bothered me that much. I was much more bothered by the fact that her breasts are lopsided… and like… defy gravity all together. x.x

Worgen cast animations are pretty good, though.

i will enjoy 6.0 when disc is THE WORST healer. (if only there were belf druids cause then i’d roll druid so fast)

Hahaha, me too! IT SHALL BE GLORIOUS.

(I’ve never been one for belf druids but I can definitely see the appeal.)

mistweavers are so strong on makorok (cause absorbs mean NOTHING), and thok (many instants, HANDLE IT), but everything else is just like… meeeeh (also mws are so badly hurt whenever a disc priest is around sob)

Yeeeeah. Mistweaver is still ultra fun though. I really enjoy pugging things on mine since other pug healers are usually really bad so I can still out heal them regardless. :p

And yes, disc priests are evil heal thieves (srsly, top hps AND bottom overall healing like 100% of the time?! DAFUQ). 

willowwwww asked—
Thank you so much for what you wrote, it really helps!! Icy Veins can be pretty vague sometimes :/ You should send them an email to write the article for Mistweaver lol. During those fights, does your HPS vary between bosses and the other healers you're with? For a good Mistweaver, where should you expect your HPS to be when healing correctly? Also, what's your exp for healing SoO? (14/14 N and/or H?)

You’re welcome! (:

I am 14/14 H on my druid, 13/14 H on my priest, 8/14 H on my Shaman, and 14/14 N on my monk. However, I only have minimal experience raiding 10 man, as I typically raid 25 man or in larger flex groups. 

HPS will always vary between fights, although I’ve found my monk’s HPS to be most dependent upon who I’m healing with. Because Mistweavers are so weak at the moment, strong healers will be more likely to outperform you than not (they’ll just beat you to the healing—it doesn’t necessarily mean that your throughput is too low). I’ve found that Mistweavers do very well on Malkorok and Thok. Unfortunately I can’t give you any specific numbers since HPS is also dependent on group size and raid difficulty (larger groups / higher difficulty -> more HPS).

I might have missed its mention, but in 10m specifically, tft uplift->-rem->-tri/quad uplift(4 chi 1or2 brew) is a humongous raid cd, comparable to tranquility.

Oh, dang—it’s that powerful? I had no idea.

I didn’t really elaborate specific combinations of ability use, but yes, this is worth mention.

willowwwww asked—
Have any tips for an aspiring mistweaver? I just finally leveled my toon to 90 today and I've been reading up in icy veins, but I want to know what you personally think works best for certain fights in SoO, etc. Thanks!

Ohh, Mistweaver is fun! Definitely one of my favorite healers to play. It’s unfortunate that they’re rather weak at the moment in comparison to other healers. ):

General Tips: Crit > Spirit. Always. Don’t gem for spirit unless it is to meet a worthwhile socket bonus. Keep your jade statue up near the melee, moving it as often as necessary as the group moves. Because Mistweaver cooldowns aren’t nearly as effective as other healing cooldowns, chances are that you won’t ever be assigned to use them any any specific time in a fight, which means you are—for the most part—free to use them whenever you’d like. On most fights I use them as often as possible to pad meters the most. Holding onto Life Cocoon and Revival as recovery only is not recommended in Siege of Orgrimmar, since most of the damage is predictable.

I make quite a few of references to fistweaving bellow (I really like to fistweave). I fistweave on pretty much every fight as a filler when possible, as the smart healing of Eminence works well to snipe healing during low damage phases. If you want to maximize your throughput while fistweaving, I highly recommend that you use mouse over macros for your healing abilities. If you don’t want to do any of that, then ignore all the fistweaving bits and just heal as normal.
