- Six casts of Penance per minute either damage or healing depending on the fight;
- Six casts of Holy Fire/Solace per minute;
- Six casts of Prayer of Mending per minute;
- Five PW:Shields per minute to ensure Rapture procs on cooldown;
- Using the level 90 talent spell on cooldown (4x Divine Star, 2x Cascade or 1x Halo);
- Three casts of Prayer of Healing, ideally used with Spirit Shell)
- Two casts of Archangel per minute;
- Inner Focus used at least once per minute (again used with Spirit Shell);
- Spirit Shell used at least once per minute (to allow for effective timing);
Lets assume the worst and say I never utilise Borrowed Time and not forget that Inner Focus and Spirit Shell are OFF the GCD:
- Six Penances = 6 x 1.9 seconds = 11.4 seconds;
- Six Holy Fires = 6 x 1.4 seconds = 8.4 seconds;
- Six x Prayer of Mending = 6 x 1.4 seconds = 8.4 seconds;
- Five PW: Shields = 5 x 1.4 seconds = 7.0 seconds;
- Four x Divine Star = 4 x 1.4 seconds = 5.6 seconds;
- Three x Prayer of Healing = 3 x 2.1 seconds = 6.3 seconds;
This means my must cast spells consume 47.1 of the available 60 seconds which means I have 12.9 seconds left of my minute which is enough for 9 Smite’s or 6 Prayer of Healing’s and 0.3 seconds of downtime in my imaginary minute.
Because of the number of instant casts and the fact that I use Glyph of Penance means movement will have minimal impact on the number of spells cast.
What I discovered in my spell list was too many Smite’s not enough Holy Fire’s, Penances, PW: Shields and possibly a bigger crime of not enough Spirit Shell. So now I know where I need to focus my attention and as long as I am getting close to the 39 spells per minute below I’ll be happy that even if I am getting out healed, I’m doing the what is needed of me.
- 9x Smite;
- 6x Penances;
- 6x Holy Fires:
- 6x x Prayer of Mending;
- 5x PW: Shields;
- 4x Divine Star:
- 3x Prayer of Healing;
