Very good read. Thanks for all the useful information.

Excellent collection of information.

The healer specific "target of target" option as well as the "target of mob" option I had no idea about. Those two options alone will save countless lives.

Great idea on not pawning artifacts. And right clicking an item in the AH automatically brings up comparable prices?!?!?!

I wish I had found this sooner. =D

Ohhh, useful!

Also, there are two separate bullet points on target of target... I don't think both are necessary.

Quote:
In the settings menu, there is an option to "Cast on Target of Target"; This is excellent as a healer spec. Keep your target as your tank, and you can continue to cast damaging spells at what your target is targeting, and still throw heals on your target, all without losing your tank target.

I also use this as a DPS in many cases, where I just simply target the tank and cast damaging spells.
o As a healer in a Rift, where mobs are sometimes targeting people who are not in your Raid/Group, you can target the mob and cast a healing spell. The healing spell will always hit the person the mob is targeting.
o Great for increasing activity as a healer in a Rift or Invasion. It is a psuedo "Dual Targetting" system that works wonders in rifts and instances. For this option, go to Settings > Interface > Combat : and checkmark the Cast on Target's Target.

The information in the Soul Selection guide is outdated, very outdated.

Due to it being outdated, the chart included at the bottom isn't entirely accurate.

The comment at the very top about Justicar specifically...Asking whether you want to be a tank or healer and then in the divergent choice area asking "do you want to suck at it?" and then pointing to Justicar if you answer yes.

Information guides are meant to give information and instruction not personal opinion, especially if that opinion is not accurate (Justicars can tank just fine, and they heal very well too, they just can't main heal a group).

Otherwise the other guides are quite helpful.

Definitely agreed. I had never noticed that flowchart. It appears extremely unprofessional.

The soul collection guide is still a work in progress. I will post its own thread in the forums when it is complete. I agree that it isn't entirely up to date yet but will be very soon.
