Tuesday! A day off from raiding, a day to center myself and get caught up on a bunch of things, including weekly search terms that seem interesting.
1) what is raidwalled
“Raidwalled” is when a paladin with the talent Divine Sacrifice and Divine Guardian casts Divine Sacrifice, which activates Divine Guardian. This name comes from the warrior cooldown called Shield Wall, although Divine Guardian will not mitigate anywhere near as much damage as Shield Wall. However, it does affect the entire raid, whereas Shield Wall only affects the warrior.
2) bop remove cleave armor debuff ruby sanctum
That’s an awesome question. Next time I do RS, I’ll BOP an inactive tank for a second before freedoming them to see if that works.
3) do elixir mastery proc on potions
It astounds me that, more than three years since alchemy specializations were introduced, people still don’t get it.
No, Elixir Mastery alchemists proc on elixirs and flasks. Potion Mastery alchemists proc on potions. Transmute Mastery alchemists proc on transmutes.
4) drape of the violet tower holy paladin
DON’T DO IT DON’T DO IT DON’T DO IT BY ALL THAT IS HOLY DO NOT DO IT.
Okay, I may have exaggerated. But you have other options.
And if you got lucky, Ahune dropped Shroud of Winter’s Chill for you and you didn’t get rid of it.
Honestly, I’d rank the cloaks thusly, from best to worst for a holy paladin:
25m Ony then Ahune then 10m Ony then Drape of the Violet Tower.
5) stormbringer gloves
I admit, I had no idea what the hell these were. The 251 Stormbringer Gloves are nice 251-level gloves. I would recommend the badge gloves over them, though, for a holy paladin. The Gauntlets of Overexposure are better — more int, more haste. They’re also available for 60 Emblems of Frost. Ultimately, I like the Unclean Surgical Gloves and the heroic Unclean Surgical Gloves better.
6) +casting +”beacon of light” +threat
I’m pretty sure that you do get some measure of threat merely by casting Beacon of Light. The Lich King looked at me last night after I cast Beacon of Light on an OT. It’s likely not much, probably the equivalent of a face pull, and would probably need to be done right when the boss becomes active (in the case of the Lich King, for example) in order to cause any significant threat.
Does the mirrored heal from Beacon of Light cause threat? I honestly don’t know. I’ll see if I can figure that one out.
7) any way to parse halion log
I use World of Logs, but the last I saw, it wasn’t able to parse both the shadow realm and the physical realm, since you’re only logging for your active realm.
I love WoL dearly and have no doubt they’re working on this issue.
8) halion beacon of light
What I like to do is beacon the tank here and raid heal, including myself. However, I never, ever hesitate to directly heal the tank, even if beacon is on them. I do this on most single-tank portions of fights. Will the beacon go through the realms? I do not think so.
9) holy paladin multiple beacon
You can have an unlimited number of beacons on a single target. The only limitation is how many holy paladins you have around.
10) is the weekly on the same lockout as the regular raids
Yes. That means if your weekly is Lord Jaraxxus and you go into TOC10 to kill him, you will be saved to TOC10. Same if it’s XT-002 Deconstructor and you go in to Ulduar 25, you are then saved to Ulduar 25.
