View Full Forums : scales of the reptile sucks?

Not seeing the point of this spell is it totally identical to skin of the reptile but with a TINY increase to the amount healed?

According to allakhazam's the rk3 is only 228 more points healed than skin of the reptile.

That's a 38% increase over Reptile.

I use this spell on the MT when we are about to fight a named, and every little bit helps, especially before the named is fully slowed and debuffed. Yes I also spam heal the MT in steamfactory on nameds, but this slightly increases my heal per second for those first few seconds before slow and debuffs land.

I also toss it on our puller sometimes to help him get back from a pull when he is going to be mostly out of range of heals.

It is rather expensive mana wise for the heal, so its a special case spell, not something I use on most mobs.

Comparing it to the earlier viersion; its much easier to get, I dont have the 69 spell, so that is one plus.

this may give you an idea how utterly useless i think reptile is now:

[Sun Jan 13 15:56:46 2008] You begin casting Scales of the Reptile.
[Sun Jan 13 15:58:12 2008] Your Scales of the Reptile spell has worn off of Hittem.

the fight was two gods, tank was on sol ro. reptile lasted full duration without hitting its max procs (12). whoop-dee-doo. 1009 mana, may (or, as this shows, may not) proc a 731hp heal 12 times.

sure, maybe its rng, but for me it happens like this a lot. no, this is not a spell that will ever see my spell bar again.

as a replacement, i guess i'd have to recommend carrying Distillate of Celestial Healing XIII ( hand em out to your tanks before the fight begins.

I use the 69 reptile anytime I am healing. Its more than cost effective especially with the vermiculated drape (25% mana reduction for this spell). On a lot of instances I almost don't have to heal when using reptile, I'm excited to try out the new one though I just hit level 79 and haven't used it yet.

Its always on my healer spell set up.

Good luck!

Although I do prefer the Rk.2 (1.44 mana/hp non-crit) to the 68 (1.25 mana/hp non-crit), I find it odd that they overwrite each other.

The lvl 68 overwrites the Rk2 and the Rk2 overwrites the lvl 68. They are on different cast timers however, which is nice in a multi-tank situation.
