Make Haste!


*This was written in November of 2009.

I was just over at PlusHeal.com responding to a post, and decided.. why not put my response here? The question posed was, “Does Haste Make a Difference?”

I decided to take part in the discussion as I now love haste. The cast times are quite remarkable if you ask me, and I have posted them here. Wonder what it would be like to have 1 flash heal per second? Anyhoo.. here is my response:

“I love haste and have found it does make quite the difference; however, you have to watch your mana if you are an avid overhealer! I use my shadowfiend at about 40-50% just be on the safe side in the Coliseum raids.

I’ve been taking note of my cast times, too.

With my “haste” outfit on and without any consumable or raid buffs, I hit 554 haste (16.9%) and a 24.4% holy crit.

My cast times go to:
Flash Heal 1.283s

Greater Heal (Serendipity x 3) 1.625s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 2) 1.796s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 1) 1.968s
Greater Heal 2.139s

Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 3) 1.950s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 2) 2.156s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 1) 2.361s
Prayer of Healing 2.566s

If I rock my Triumph “Four-Set” outfit, I get 488 (17.47%) haste. 24.95% Holy Crit.

My cast times go to:
Flash Heal 1.306s

Greater Heal (Serendipity x 3) 1.654s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 2) 1.828s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 1) 2.002s
Greater Heal 2.176s

Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 3) 1.985s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 2) 2.194s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 1) 2.361s
Prayer of Healing 2.402s

Lastly, a “Crit” outfit with only 430 (15.71%) haste and 26.82% Holy Crit.

My cast times go to:
Flash Heal 1.326s

Greater Heal (Serendipity x 3) 1.680s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 2) 1.857s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 1) 2.033s
Greater Heal 2.176s

Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 3) 2.016s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 2) 2.228s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 1) 2.440s
Prayer of Healing 2.402s

If I eat the +40 haste Imperial Manta Steak, take the +45 haste Elixir of Lightning Speed along with +45 intellect Elixir of Might Thoughts.. WITH my “haste” outfit, this is what I get: 639 haste (19.49%), 24.67% Holy Crit.

My cast times go to:
Flash Heal 1.255s

Greater Heal (Serendipity x 3) 1.590s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 2) 1.758s
Greater Heal (Serendipity x 1) 1.925s
Greater Heal 2.092s

Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 3) 1.908s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 2) 2.109s
Prayer of Healing (Serendipity x 1) 2.310s
Prayer of Healing 2.511s

May not seem like a lot in “time,” but I did notice a huge difference for me in the Coliseum raids.”

Happy Raiding!
