The Light and How to Swing It: Just how masterful can mastery healing get?


Every week, WoW Insider brings you [hide]The Light and How to Swing It[/hide] for [hide]holy[/hide], [hide]protection[/hide] and [hide]retribution[/hide] paladins. Every Sunday, [hide]Chase Christian[/hide] invites you to discuss the finer side of the paladin class: the holy specialization. Feel free to [hide]email me[/hide] with any questions you want answered, like why paladins are so awesome.

Sometimes I feel like I can’t get away from [hide]Illuminated Healing[/hide]. Our holy paladin mastery has been receiving [hide]nonstop tweaks[/hide] since [hide]its introduction[/hide], and it’s always flirting with viability. Stats like haste and critical strike rating are predictable. I can draw up some formulas to show you how many extra ticks of [hide]Holy Radiance[/hide] you’ll receive at a given haste level. Mastery is much more nebulous than that, as its effectiveness depends entirely on the encounter and your healing assignment.

Everyone has some amount of mastery rating on their gear, and there’s even some passively built into our characters. While having a bit of mastery to make our heals bubbly helps our throughput, it’s certainly not overpowered. There are a few holy paladins who, in an attempt to see how far Illuminated Healing can go, have enchanted, reforged, and gemmed into mastery completely. With IH bubbles absorbing 35% of the value of the original heal, stacking mastery can obviously make something interesting happen.
