Hello, everyone! I’m sorry it’s been so long since we’ve posted anything. Each new Alpha build comes along at a quick pace (usually once per week) and with it comes a lot of changes. I’ve been keeping my Legion version of the spreadsheet up to date, but because it’s changing so frequently, I haven’t really wanted to share it yet. I’ve also been working on making some additions to the overall functionality of the spreadsheet, but they’ve been mostly underwhelming so far.
Part of the problem with using Google Sheets is that most (if not all) of the calculations are done on the server, so they start to get really slow when you add more. I think I’m starting to get to the point where I might have to make an internal Excel Spreadsheet for some of the more nuanced calculations or just bite the bullet and make an actual program. For now, I like that most of what I do can be seen by everyone.
I have a few thoughts on some of the philosophies of healing in general and Holy Paladins in Legion that I may try to write soon, but I’ve been fairly busy with life stuff, so I’m not sure if I’ll ever actually get around to it while it’s still relevant. Either way, I wanted to let everyone know that we haven’t died or quit updating, there’s just been too many changes to give any updates to Legion that wouldn’t quickly become outdated and I’ve kept most of my thoughts on the official Alpha Forums’ feedback threads. For the time being, you can look at some of my Warcraft Logs from various dungeons and raid testing on the Legion Alpha.
Oh, and Jeath somehow still doesn’t have access to Alpha, so that sucks. #BequeathTheJeath
