Hello, my priest's guild is currently working on the Twin Emperors. The nature of this fight (especially the melee DPS running back and forth) has led me to wonder if Lightwell is useful or not, and worth respeccing to. Currently i'm 26/25/0 pretty standard specc, but I am considering respeccing to be able to cast Lightwell.
Before dropping the 50g to respecc, however, i would like to hear some other, more experienced players' thoughts on this spell. Is it worth the money to respecc and does it help the raid a lot?
The only use I've seen out of it is for warlocks lifetapping during Patchwerk. If you plan to use it for Emps, don't place it near the bugs or some idiot might try to right-click the well and auto-attack a bug instead...
Honestly, you could take that 50 gold and buy your Rogues/Warriors Major Healing Potions and they'd be better off. The requirement that the spell is cast in a safe spot (usually away from where the mob is tanked) means that 90% of the time if the person needs a heal that badly it's better for them to just bandage.
We usually have 2-3 healers in the middle who work on healing the DPS/bug tank/Warlock tank as needed.
It's better to use a more sensible spec and renew/heal them when they tap. I have 33 points in holy, but no lolwell.
It also helps to let them know when they can tap because you can heal them. A lot of DPS seem to think that if a healer's mana is at 30% or so they shouldn't expect to get any heals, though I suppose that's better than the alternative.
Had it from the priestrevamp patch until just after naxx was released, then decided to spec out of it. Depending on the fight/situation it ranged from being "ok" to completely worthless, which imo wasn't worth the effective 2 talentpoints since I also came to think spirit of redemption was a wasted point.
Emps was one occasion where I'd say it was ok, still would hardly say it helped the raid "alot" and I wouldn't recommend respeccing to it.
