Default I could use a hand

OK I have a secret. I have never blocked any heals from mercs. Never. I also have never had trouble killing a named with just a merc healer. UNTIL NOW. The new expansion sucks , is tuned to raiders as they tend to do from time to time. Soooo., I think I need to do what you guys suggested to others years ago. Problem is I never don't it so could use a refresher and maybe some spell numbers or whatever it takes to do this. Anyone still playing mind giving me a heads up on this?

Thanks
Flatch

I haven't played in awhile but used to block the heal from the merc that casted a heal automatically after a few seconds cant remember the name, but blocking that made the merc heal better.

That's what I was thinking. Thank you for answering. I block buff by right clicking them and choosing that one and picking block this buff. Is it the same with heals?

What I use is the following, (via hot keys)

/blockspell add me 13 55157 55290 55202

/blockspell add pet 13 55157 55290 55202

This blocks complete heal and the following spell lines: (1) Merciful Elixir; (2) Elixir of Wulthan; and (3) Promised Remedy.

By spell lines, I mean it blocks all earlier iterations of these spells and includes the Rank 1, 2, and 3 spells. Basically, you're trying to block out the heal over time lines. If you regularly group with a "real cleric" who uses these spells (some use promised, clerics that don't group with shaman may use the elixirs). If you're on a progression server, you may still have complete heal chains, I guess.

Then create a hot key that reads,

/blockspell remove me 13 55157 55290 55202

and/or

/blockspell remove pet 13 55157 55290 55202

You can then add or remove those spells as needed from your blocked list. Hope this helps.

Thanks all I will get that hotkey in. So Hots are all you look to block from them?

Hots and promised line. You can block other stuff, but for making merc healing snappier, that's it.

At least that's my experience.
