Shaman Healing Guide Video

Some of you might remember the Shaman Healing Guide i posted here earlier. Since I'm such a sharing person and want destruction to improve I decided to make a complement in the form of a video since alot of people can't be bothered to read guides and enjoy videos alot more :)

I know the video isn't perfect, it was never meant to be, I'm not discussing rotations or how to encounter specific cases, it's quite general and is mainly meant for new shamans out there. Though an experienced player might want to watch it anyway just for the fun of it, who knows, you might get some ides for an UI improvement or something?

I posted the link on a mIRC discussion and a fellow player there thought that I'm a retard, he thought that my positioning sucks and asked why I wasn't hiding in bushes and healing from maximum range? I'm not a hider, I prefer to be as close to my group as possible to be in range for a guard switch, minimum LoS problems and knowing that my AoE heal is always in range. Hiding doesn't really work in WAR since you can easily tab and find players and how many times haven't you been killed by a WH because you weren't close to the group? If everyone is close to each other a DPS class can easily chase away a WH that suddenly shows up from nowhere. However this doesn't really work in PUGs since people tend to run away and do their thing, so your premade should agree on that you stick close to each other and e.g. meleetrain and call out targets for the entire group.

Before I get even more rage from you guys, no, I'm not saying that you shouldn't hide, ambushing is really effective but I'm talking about hiding in bushes during small scenario fights.

  1. This is what I like about Warhammer, and really miss in WoW (I mainly play wow these days, but always miss warhammer) - I like that Warhammer is not an absolute science, you can play the game, and spec the way you want, and still be awesome. While WoW is much more "cookie-cutter" specs to perform well.

    Gonna give warhammer another try, and see if I can find an active server =)

  2. hello mate!

    Great guides and video. I was helping out my friend who just actually came back to warhammer. He is also playing a shamy and immediately showed him this video&guide.

    He was also asking for your UI, I was only able to tell the names to him, but I assume it would be nice if you could just upload it with all your settings. Is it possible?
