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.

      Goooooood Afternoon Droods!
      I've healed forevvvver but only been restro'ing since legion (dirty boosted char lol) I concerned about my throughput within HC atm.
      It's a weird one, I'm the raid 'healer leader' and coordinate cooldowns and I fill the healer spot between a Holy Priest and Holy Pala. We don't struggle with healing and are progressing just fine...but I feel I can and should be able to give more.
      I can clear Mythic+ without problems with a CRIT/MAST build, HoT stacking, and I run a HASTE/CRIT build for raids, using SoF/SM synergy with WG/Dreamwalker to try and blanket, easing the pressure that Priest if feeling on the raid and spot heals of Pala.
      Here is a typical HASTE/CRIT build for raiding -
      YES - that is a legendary for my OS guardian spec while I was LFR'ing last week -_- seriously salty about it hahaha
      Here are my latest rankings -
      Here is a log of my guild raid team that I really want to do well for, completed normal -
      and here is the most our guild do in HC - (still progression so only three kills)
      and here is a complete HC run I managed -
      I'm after opinions and thoughts on stat weights, ideas on builds/rotations in general or on specific bosses....mainly though I would like your views on how to synergise my spot within the healer team of the guild, be that for me to squeeze in around them, or to exert my will upon them and get them to change for the greater good...all valid hypnotises will be tested and I will post results and logs back up on here.
      Look forward to hearing from you all, hope your loot's all BiS this week!!
      Your friendly Resto friend.....

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
