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.

Blue Dragon Card

I know a lot of healers are very pro stacking +heal, and if you know much about me you know that I am not. Of course I want +heal, but my main priority is my mana.

So, yes I use the Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon, which you can obtain by turning in the Darkmoon Beast Deck. I can tell you that I personally used this card all the way into WotLK, up until they changed it to no longer scale perfectly.

At the moment knowing my card has procced doesn’t really change my game play that much. But there were times in the past that I had, say, an on-use spirit trinket… that I would want to activate if my blue dragon buff was on. Also, if it’s not an emergency, I don’t want to blow innervate while the buff is active and waste it.

For those reasons I love this weak aura. I didn’t write it but I use it and would recommend it 100%
