Healadin combo: HoSacrifice + Bacon?

Postby Wakeman » Wed Oct 22, 2008 4:56 am

Have anyone mentioned this? When healing 5-man: Hand of Sacrifice on the tank + Bacon of Light + self heal = tank receives 30% less damage half of the time. Sounds like a useful combo to me.

Though maybe dangerous to use in raid.


[edit] mistaked about the duration: it is only 12s every 2mins....

Our pallies used this when jumping of the ledge-o-doom on twins, after i sugested it to them, so they could keep the lock tank alive, and it's rly not as dangeous as u'd think.

I am doing this a lot in 5-mans. Works great with a Warrior or Drood tank...

the Pally tanks keeps asking me where his FRICKING mana is!! :D

If it is not an AoE fight and the tank is good with aggro, I typically Beacon myself just incase I pull aggro and keep healing the tank. But if I am going to take some low level AoE, then I Beacon the tank with HoS and heal myself.

Works well, we ripped through H Arc in record time last night.

Cheers,
sherck

To further abuse it: two healadins in raid + both bacon the tank + ordered HoSac the tank + healadins heal each other = tank 30% less damage full time + both healadins huge mana regen!

Woot! :lol:

How cost intensive is the Beacon? ANd does beacon heal regens mana to the pally who healed?

Like the first case: Beacon yourself, sacrifice and heal the tank. Do you get mana back from the beacon-heal you receive?

Oh sorry, I made some big mistake about the duration and cooldown of HoS.

So it is only 12s every 2 min if 1 healadin, and 24s every 2 mins if 2 healadins.....

Beacon cost like 950 mana. So out of a 10,000 point mana pool (which I have), the cost is not terrible but you do not want to be casting it willy nilly...

Beacon is considered it's own healing source (like lolwell ?) so if you cast Beacon on yourself and then heal someone else, you do get mana back from SA. Unless you are taking some pretty serious damage in an AoE fight, it will not be enough mana to justify the cost but if you can stand in a pool of lava, Beacon yourself and keep healing the tank, get healed yourself and regenerate mana all the while.

Whoever says Beacon sucks can die in a fire then.

30% tank damage reduction at the cost of 2 gcds and low net mana cost? hell yeah

Places a Hand on the party member, transfering 30% damage taken to the caster. Lasts 12 sec. Players may only have one Hand on them per Paladin at any one time.


It is only 12 Sec of -30% Damage at a 2 Min CD. It IS cool. But the long CD/Short Duration makes that a thing for special high damage situations (like a stomp)

FYI, it's not Beacon of Light, but BACON of Light!

Get it right, thanks :wink:

I know, isn't that awesome? Due to the couple gcds you need to make the combo work, it's not something you spam, but save for when you know the tank will take a reasonable beating. Think Jan'Alai's enrage.
