Leveling in off spec on resto druid

5 posts in this topic

I know this seems long and off topic but just adding a few details to help you all understand the situation 

I have a resto Druid that I'm going to get back to leveling, I have 2 friends that are both level 60, a disc priest and destro lock, well the priest hasn't played that toon in a long time and isn't used to healing but is in full BoA so we are going to be leveling together in 5 mans and some questing, well we can't both be healers so I'm going to have an off spec to play when I'm with them but not sure what I can really play good enough in my resto gear, is their a spec I can play along with resto to be good enough to handle my role without getting kicked? I'll be getting some BoA gear but not sure what exactly I should get or what I can play in one set of gear, not really wanting to buy 2 sets of gear for 1 toon

I do have a druid as well, resto and balance (boomkin) using the same gear for both specs.

Ofcourse it suits one spec better then the other but never had probs with it.

Ok I was thinking I would probably need boomkin with resto since I would have all that caster gear, was kinda hoping that since the Druid is known for being so versatile that I could be feral for my other spec or even guardian, I have played feral before and did like it but decided that I wanted to be a healer since I also have a blood dk and have enjoyed tanking I would be able to fill any role, is it possible for me to be feral/resto in any set of BoA gear (maybe even have some pieces healing gear and some rogue or tank gear) or even guardian since I'll be with a disc priest in full BoA without her ooming every fight. And I'm not wanting to be top dps or the best tank ever, just good enough that I can do 5 mans with my friends without people complaining about my performance,

i suggest you take a look at "classes" at the top of the forum, and look at the different ones you are thinking of yourself.

Imo the combo guardian/resto doesnt really fit or even resto/feral, quite different stats to aim for to play at least decent.

Would really go for resto/boomkin, then you have best of both worlds ;)

then again, just my 50cnts

Ofcourse you would go for balance, no reason not to. First, you'd destroy everything in your path and second, shares the same gear as resto. Ofc you would want to aim for spirit gear so you can be more effective when needed to heal. Another thing you should take into consideration is the caster origin of your trio there, they both will greatly benefit from 5% haste buff that you bring to the table :) Happy adventures :P

      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
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [1/7H] OTHER EVENTS

      I'm maining Resto Druid in Legion and I've been browsing the forums for advice and hints to improve my healing. I've found lots of information here so I thought I'd give back. One thing I failed to see anyone mention in a lot of the threads I read is the Artifact trait Dreamwalker. People were discussing ways to save mana and ways to improve their healing and I feel this accomplishes both. It's passive but I feel if you were to play close attention to making sure you have rejuv on the targets that have wild growth, you'll get much more healing out of those expensive wild growth casts. We all know the SW>WG>Flourish>EoG combo but if you prep your targets with rejuv beforehand, you can get even more healing out of this bread and butter combo. I just wanted to bring more attention to the trait because I didn't see anyone mention it. Also please feel free to leave any other tips you feel aren't being brought up often enough. Thanks guys.
