Eye of the Dead

Little PSA. If you haven’t heard, you should defiantly, 100% be giving this item to your HoT spamming resto druid. Why you ask?

You see that on use… “Increase healing done by the next 5 spells by 450 for 30 seconds“…. well rejuvenation benefits from the +spell increase, but does not consume a charge! So in 30 seconds, you can put out 20 rejuvenations with the extra 450 spell power bonus. It’s great.

Little more breakdown about that:

Remember the rejuvenation only gets a 80% benefit from spell power, so really its + 360 spell power.

If you cast a rejuvenation BEFORE the buff, but swiftmend WITH the buff, it heals for as much as a duration of rejuvenation cast with the buff. This will consume a charge.

If you cast swiftmend AFTER the buff expires, on a swiftmend cast WITH the buff, then it will heal for the full duration of a swiftmend as if it was cast without the buff.

This is OP as hell on fights like Sapphiron where you’re blanketing the raid with HoTs.

I assume this would also work for a renew priest but I can’t personally test it.

Also, guys… if you’re a rejuvenation druid, stick with your T-2 as long as you can. That 8 piece is still amazing, even in Naxx.

Rejuvenation Math

So Nerds, lets talk about Rejuvenation math!

When calculating your rejuvenation (or any HoT in vanilla) you use your +heal * duration/15. So since Rejuvenation is 12 seconds it is +heal*12/15 or more simply +heal*.8

The second penalty applies to spells learned under level 20. For rejuvenation this is ranks 1, 2 and 3. This penalty is
(20 – [Spell Level]) * 0.0375

Now here are the interesting things! If you have the Idol of Rejuvenation it adds +50 healing to Rejuvenation. So originally I just added this to my +heal and was wondering why the numbers all seemed ever so slightly off. But the HoT penalty (in our case 0.8) isn’t applied to the idol! Unfortunately the under 20 penalty is πŸ™‚

Here is another thing. If you have full T2, then your rejuvenation gets an extra tick, and now lasts 15 seconds. So you might think that +heal*15/15 means no penalty right? Sadly, that is wrong πŸ™ It counts as an extra tick, not an added duration. So it still calculates as if it was 12 second duration.

Anyway, check it out in action on my rank down calculator πŸ™‚
