Message to User:
This is some very odd formatting you have here, leading me to believe you are just cross-posting shit from other forums. I hope that's not the case.
Feel free to call me a noob or irgnorant, but i fail to see why the CoH nerf is
bad. This post is not meant to be offensive but i'm willing to take the risk.
In 10 mans, i hardly ever feel the urge to use CoH. Some trash in naxx, and
a few bosses (Saphhiron, Thaddius, Leothab), certainly have use for CoH. But
besides that, CoH is not needed in 10 mans (and the use of "needed" in the
last sentence may even be exaggerated). For Malygos or Sartharion CoH is not
needed at all (topping up people after vortex is nice, they could also click
the light well. And for sartharion, yes, well, you can save those 5 people
who brain-afk and stand in the lava waves with CoH, but the should have
avoided it in the first place).
For 25 mans, the one big difference is basicly 15 more people standing in
the fire or eating the aoe (volleys that can't be avoided by movement). From
my personal experience, CoH helps in these fights. While i won't bet any money
that the vast majority of these encounters are actualy trash mobs, CoH might
really prevent wipes IF it was spammable. But i really doubt this is the case
for boss fights. And for my very own 2 cents, i feel stupid when just spamming
CoH. I have'nt been to Malygos-25 yet. And topping up people might be harder
after vortex (maybe CoH spam during vortex is feasible, in the 10 man version
it's pretty much a mana waste).
That beeing said, the only thing that worries me is the group restriction
on our other aoe heals. And there is no real reason for me to worry about
it even: the raid leader has to (that is, to set up groups so it can be aoe healed
by me, if needed. At first people might complain, they are not healed instantly.
But PoH should do fine).
So, after lining out how (from my personal experience) raid healing is at
the moment, i hardly see why anyone actually is worried about the nerf. Sure,
monitoring an additional cooldown sucks. But adding one more cooldownto the
three others (inner focus, PoM and shadowfiend) is not really bad, is it?
After this wall of text, finally to the remarks made at the beginning. Some
posts in this thread really make it look like you guys are only brought
to raids to spam CoH. Something is afoot here ...
