Balance druid tips/help (logs)

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

 

I play a balance druid for a few weeks now and I wanted to ask if someone could take a look at my logs and tell if I have any big mistakes or some things I could do better.

 

Since we don't have another balance druid in our raid, I also don't have a good comparison where I should be in terms of dmg with my current. I know it's hard to say, but can you roughly estimate if my numbers are ok in generell?

Would be glad to get some helpful answers :)

In the log linked, it looks like you use Incarnation after pull instead of before. Doing it before saves you a GCD during combat and is a generous DPS increase for the opener. There was a drop in both Sunfire and Starfire right when the raid casted Bloodlust. 59 casts between Starsurge and Starfall seems pretty strong. In all, you are performing well. From what I can see, it comes down to a good understanding of how your spells interact with one another and how to situate yourself intelligently in the raid, since you are taking very little damage and have a stable output with no significant dips from having to move.

Since I didn't find a special topic for this, and I personally think there should be one sticky with "My DeePeeZ is low, HELP!" for balance and feral, I'll post here :>

 

Another fat chicken, forced out of his usual seat (mistweaver) into the harsh world of DPSing, wondering what he's doing wrong on the Butcher, dps seems... low sad.png Some advice, please (aside from opener, got that part while browsing and not having a Copeland).

Thanks in advance.

Other than the fact you got bitch-slapped by the boss there, not seeing anything wrong. Your gear is extremely well itemized for Balance, you've got a lot of gold into expensive enchants, and you pulled 30K on a single target fight. Dot management was flawless. I did notice that you didn't do anything while moving; the initial damage of Moonfire/Sunfire isn't amazing, but it's better than nothing, and maybe you can Starsurge if the timing works out.

      After running Nighthold last night and experimenting with some of the "other" talent choices, I thought it was worth mentioning the Balance Druid Talent Selection section needs some updating.  For example, Warrior of Elune is said to be not competitive and not to be taken; however, when reviewing logs of high parsing players this talent is taken in many situations in this raid due to the number of high movement fights (along with Soul of the Forest and Feral Affinity).  Just thought I would throw that out there to the big brains perhaps some evaluation of the rankings and descriptions of talent choices to explain situational uses a little more.
      I know this is a basic starter guide, but at face value some of the information is misleading for current content (7.1.5 Nighthold).

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).

      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day

      Hi experts,
      I started with healing again in raids and mythics(+) and I followed the advice here to go for Int/haste first. it would be very nice if someone would tale the time to look at my equipment:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/Area-52/Vandara/advanced
      and let me know if you have any hints for me if I should change my stats priority/enchantments etc. I think I could need a bigger Mana pool also.
      I just joined a hc raid group as a heal and I was not doing too bad, however I'd like to get better :-) Thank you so much for your help, it is really appreciated.

      I'm a ilevel 870-ish resto druid.
      In order to help my lazy DSPers in M+ man5, I more or less started to dps when there's no healing to do, also to keep me busy.
      The question is rather simple and is in 2 parts:
      1/ I'm using a stupid dot-as-musch-as-possible + solar wrath "rotation" . Is this correct ? the restoration guide is missing a dps section :o). I have the guardian affinity, I find the dps bonus in boomkin affinity way too low for the trouble. Switching forms costs one GCD which I find deadly in M++
      2/ I usually end up at most with something around 140k DPs on some packs, more likely to be around 90K dps average, maybe 60Kdps on boss fights... Anyone has some reasonable DPS target available or want to share their experience ? I'm no elite so I cannot pull off elite magic stuff but I'd still be interested in anyone feedback on that subject.
       
      Note: I'm no elite player in the sense that I probably will never be able to switch to cat form to do some melee dps, way too dangerous for  me :o)
      Note2: I cannot exactly remember but I think I can raise up to 250 Kdps but that means that no healing is required, which does not happen in M+
