And again we run into the problem where you are trying to force heal a group instead of using the classes/specs toolkit to its advantage. Like I said in my previous thread, this is why you come to the conclusion of needing more mastery.
With Holy Paladins you suggest spamming Holy Light as an actual heal. Now you are suggesting Shadow Mend. Im guessing for Holy Priest you are suggesting Heal spam. This is an attempt to force all healers into a generic basic spam healer instead of using each healers unique play style available to them.
The reason guides suggest haste is not so that you can spam your slow heals faster. The reason guides suggest haste is so you can play the unique playstyle faster. Using the built in bonuses of your talents and the spec itself. For Disc priests, its setting up burst windows of opportunity where time is a limiting factor. You only have a certain amount of time to get things done, so if you speed things up the better it come out. And its not just the generic heal you get from your spells, its the atonement or the shield you are spreading to another person.
This same thing goes back to holy paladins. You are forcing mastery to account for slow heals and making sure you get something for how long you are spending healing. You are thinking of all healers as the same, which yea when you take a step back and look at the spells they are. We all have a fast heal, an aoe heal, and a slow heal, and something to protect ourselves with, and a cd to speed things up or make it more powerful. Problem is, in reality they are not, and if you play them all in a generic way like that it hurts and you miss out on the core abilities that particular brings to the group.
I keep asking for the data to back these suggestions up as you continuously keep saying you have data, math, and the most robust simulator, and thats why you go against the world and you say they dont know what they are talking about. Please show it because right now, it seems like there is no data and its just your opinions being fed into a program and thats false advertising.
Maybe you dont play the game that often or check the forums…but I have been given 3 warnings this week alone for just mentioning AMR in discord forums. I guess you upset a lot of the other theorycrafters when they tried to talk to you about the issues as well so now they refuse to even allow it mentioned in the discords or on the guides. It actually goes worst than that as Guild Leaders go onto those discords to ask about their healers in raids and the advice is if they are using AMR to get them to stop or kick them.
So when we get into that situation where we are asked why we are doing things so differently and not following the rest of the world…we need to have a better response than we are just following the opinions of AMR developers…we need to show the data and reasoning behind it.
