I was reading Sacred Duty’s post On Measuring [Tank] Survivability and paying extra attention to the bits about factoring in the heal team and about communication between parts of your raid group 😀 interesting read by-the-by and I totally recommend checking it out.
In any case it’s given me another piece of self homework… incoming heals! I know healbot can display these and I even have them activated… but in a very similar colour to existing health… which come to think of it rather does help me minimize my overhealing. Pffft not that a disc priest gets a lot of overhealing outside of spells like prayer of healing and prayer of mending … oh and cascade … it overheals for a crap-load.
But I might change the colour so incoming heals are more obvious … something i can start watching during raid with more awareness… and I may even see if the rest of the healing team has this feature enabled if possible to aid communication.
I am a big big fan of the horizon heal and tank chat channels, the healing one I am pretty sure existed before I joined the guild but I like to think I am an advocator of it heh. The tank one I believe is also needed… so that the raid leader and heal team leader can see any tank discussion or so tanks can easily give feedback after a wipe without us all spamming the raid chat channel which is where the DPS entertain themselves.
