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

      Hey so I have starting Mythic progression and I just feel like I should be doing more DPS at my item level but I don't know if it is my Rotation or Stat priority.
      I'm looking at the logs and I feel like I should be doing more DPS in my current gear with is 874 with 22% Crit 29% Haste 46% Mastery

      I will keep this brief as I know folks like to get to the point!
      We are a 7/7M 3/3H raid team looking to add one Resto Shaman or one Holy/Disc Priest to our core raid team. We are on the PVE server Uldum and have been raiding since Vanilla. We raid Tues and Thurs from 8-11 EST and Sunday from 7-11EST. Hit me up in game if this sounds like a match with what you are looking for and we can chat, look at logs, etc!

      I did a lot of searching before making this thread, but I couldn't find anyone with a similar problem. I've been using VuhDo for a number of years now, maybe even as far back as 2009, and I've never had an issue with the spells and panels doing what I configured them to do. I've never played a Restoration Shaman before (I was a priest for many years), but for some reason, whenever someone in my group dies, even though I have told VuhDo to resurrect people when I click on their panel in the group, it does nothing. I tried telling VuhDo to also target the person I'm casting on, even though I find that unnecessary and annoying, but that didn't help. I tried completely resetting the configuration, re-installing VuhDo entirely, disabling other add-ons, but nothing has worked.
       
      For context, I'm also using ElvUI, but even after I disabled it, VuhDo still won't res anyone. Has anyone had any experience with this? The develop site offered no real help.
