Heroic Immerseus Healing Guide

I thought that I would start a guide for healers on my experiences with Heroic level raiding. Admittedly this is late in the tier, but as I intend to carry this on throughout Warlords of Draenor, then it is good practise! Having completed the Heroic Siegecrafter Blackfuse as this is our current progress.

Heroic Immerseus Healing Guide

First Phase. Our overall tactic, which all members follow, is to stand in a line. The melee are placed at the front and the ranged towards the back. When the Sha Puddles come down, everyone move a few steps to the right and we work our way around the room. Healers are distributed in 2 places, firstly in the line with the rest and the two tank healers are placed ahead of the main group to ensure that the tanks are in range. There are large spikes in damage, both on the tanks and the rest of the raid. But overall healing in this phase is reasonably simple, use tank cooldowns on the tank tanking the adds to keep them up. But as long as people move from the Sha Puddles reasonably quickly this is fine. Some of the tank damage is quite high on the boss tank, when he gets hit by the debuff it does hurt! So be quick with your heals here or have insta-casts ready.

Split Phase. All healers are designated their individual sectors to heal the blobs. Get to your sector as soon as you can using speed boosts if necessary, then heal the blobs in your area. Ensure that you are near them when they explode to get the buff. Now, when the healing blobs hit the centre there is an AOE explosion, as more and more healing blobs appear as the split phases happen, this means that the damage goes up and up as well. It is better to slow them all down, by having hots or some heals on them, and them hitting at different times, if you allow them to all hit (or a number of them hit) at once there will be masses of damage to heal and then you have to heal your raid members rather than the blobs! Once you are on the 5th split, everyone with healing spells (Paladin, Druid and Shaman) should heal any blob they can as there are very few DPS blobs to kill, even bandaging works! During the first 2 AOE explosions, we use 2 healing cooldowns. Then we use 3 after that as well as requiring people to use individual defensive cooldowns.
