Last night after we finished off OS-25 (which I did on my warlock)(no loot. Boo) we ran a quick OS-10 and the Construct wing of Naxx-10. These last two I did on my Pally as a healer.
I found OS-10 as a healer to be much easier than OS-10 as a DPSer. Not sure if I just had a bunch of other stellar healers propping me up.. but it -seemed- very easy.
In Naxx-10 we decided to try two-healing it. It was me (51/5/15 Holy Pally with mostly blue/greens) and Flutterbye (Resto Druid.. mostly blue/purples).
We one-shot Patchwerk!! In the end I was sucking fumes and Patchwerk hit his enrage.. but we did it. For that fight I had 3.3k HPS (Beacon is uber-sexy). I beaconed the MT and then mostly healed the OT. At 22% left on Patches we lost the OT.. and all the melee.. but we still managed to heal through it.. and about 10 seconds of patches enrage. We he finally fell over I almost cried.
We had one wipe on Grobbulus (I forgot I wasn’t supposed to dispell and and it only went downhill from there). For the second attempt we had one of the priests change over to Holy to help with the healing and chase down the infected. I changed over to MT healing and raid off-healing. It was all cake after that.
We two-shot Gluth. We didn’t have our normal kiter so we had to kind of make it up as we went along. I healed the kiter (prot pally) .. and the Paladin AOE which stuns undead.. is super sexy in this fight. The Kiter and I traded off stunning the mobs. I stood in the middle of the grates and as he ran by he’d call out for me to stun the mobs. Also, at that center grate I never had any range issues with healing the kiter (I couldn’t reach the MT/OT.. but that wasn’t my job).
On Thaddius the other healer died on the second charge transition. I healed the rest of the fight.. and really never had any problems. I beacon’d the MT and then just healed everyone else.. with occasional special heals for the tank. I think I ended the fight at 75% mana.
Overall I was at 1.7k HPS with ~28% overheal. Now.. compared to my healing in BC.. that was a shit-ton of more overheal than normal.. normally I was in the 15-21% range.. but the guild heal leader (who had been in our run on her Warlock) said that the fact that I was below 30% was phenomenal. I’m still trying to get a feel for all the new stuff I have. I know with my trinkets, Divine Illumination, Divine Favor and Lay On Hands I’m not using them enough.
Also after the run I realized I was missing 5 enchants.. and had forgot to get a belt buckle. So um.. yeah.. Pally healing is looking doable.
