#1 - 2011/01/14 07:46:00 PMPicture this. You've finally arrived at Nefarian, last boss in BWD. Three healers: druid, paladin, and You, holy priest, versatile healer who can even heal beyond the grave (when talented)! After much consideration, it is concluded (to 32.33% repeating) that the druid will heal the Ony tank, the paladin will heal the Nef tank, and You will heal the raid. As everyone jumps down, the paladin gives an anguished cry on Vent: "WoW error...disconnecting...argh--" You tell the RL, no problem, versatile healer over here, I'll just switch Chakra states and heal the Nef tank. But, as you jumped into the pit, you zinged an acrobatic PoM off the tank and now you're in Sanctuary Chakra. As the Nef tank gets rocked by shadowflame breaths and monstrous cleaves, you think about how wonderful it would be to roll a nice fat renew on him and to hit him with HW: Serenity for that juicy instant heal and extra 25% crit...except...Chakra has a 30 second CD and you're locked into Sanctuary for its full duration! Ordinarily, 30 seconds might not seem too long but it feels like an eternity when the tank is eating 35k shadowflame breaths. Of course, this story ends badly with the Nef tank dying after You oom spamming flash and greater heals, but, wait, all is not lost. At least your Hot Pocket is still warm and Jeeves and the Goblin BBQ are still up.
TLDR: Please make Chakra a stance already! A 30 second CD on our signature spell is the opposite of versatile. Holy priests should be able to toggle between Chakra states the way warriors can stance dance.
