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

      Hello everyone!
      <Shadow> is a well-established, mythic raiding team on Argent Dawn EU, consisting of mature players that stands between hardcore raiding and having busy RL schedules. We achieve this by raising the bar on player standards, personal responsibility and accountability, resulting in us progressing through content in only two nights a week of raiding.
      In essence, we like to have it all; careers, studies, families, raiding progression and above all - Fun in our mutual hobby.
      During WoD the raiding team has finished HFC Heroic and started progression through Mythic - Clearing up to Mythic Xhul before the designated break, resulting in 10/13 Mythic bosses cleared in total. (WoWProgress)
      With Legion coming and our mythic team going strong, we are looking to jump directly into progression when the new raid tiers open - And it’s always more fun with more people!
       
      We raid on the below days and times (all times are server time):
      - Thursday: 20:00 - 23:00
      - Sunday: 19:30 - 22:30
       
      What we can offer you:
      - Organised, consistent, fun and successful raids.
      - Community feel and active website.
      - Capable and positive raid leader.
      - Organised, mature and well managed guild in the essence of fair play.
       
      What we are looking for:
      - Mature players who are passionate about raiding.
      - Team players.
      - Players who have willingness and a desire to always improve.
      - Experienced players to jump straight into Mythic.

      What we are currently recruiting:

      - Mistweaver Monk
      - Resto Shaman
      - Holy Paladin

      How to join up:
      You can apply via our website following the "Join Shadow" navigation link. Alternatively you can send in-game mail to Arcere to arrange a chat.
       
      Thanks for reading!

      Hi there.

      Got in Emerald Nightmare last night and downed 6/7 normal with my guardian druid
      After the raid, the other tank and the raidleader approached me saying that I wasn't playing any good, seeing as I took alot of healing and overhealing. I was never in any real danger of dying as I had top priority on ironfur and using my cooldowns wisely.
      I tried to explain that this was because of my mastery stacking, that I do take more healing and the heals done on me does more, therefore the overhealing is high because the crits are higher. 
      Is this just me being wrong, or is this me being bad?

      Hi
      I am after some help on resto druid BIS trinket. I have been looking at AskMrRobot and Icy Veins with noxxic for stat weightings.
      AskMrRobot recommends Bottled Hurricane so highly. which contradicts icy veins and even when I try changing the stats as they had different stat priorities on noxxic and that still recommended the same trinket. I am guessing it is the haste that is ranking so high, would this trinket also be affected by mastery?
      They also say AskMrRobot trinkets is a work in progress so I also wonder on the accuracy.
      I could not find much info around trinkets, if anyone knows good sites to check I would appreciate that too.
      I should note my focus is raid heals.
      I also wonder if i am mis-understanding the stat ratings on AskMrRobot - i thought it was the order you prioritized stats and then a weighting for each. is this correct and if so what is the best way to determine weighting?

      So I know the stat priority but ive been curious if anyone knows exactly what thresholds we should shoot for for raiding (norm and heroic at least) and where we start to see DR on stats?
