[Restoration] What am I missing? Need some help!

4 posts in this topic

Hello amazing forum. Long time fan here. I've been raiding/healing on resto for almost two years now and I feel as though I am missing something. I mean, (I think) I know what to do in most situations, but my throughput just isn't as good as the other resto druid in my raiding group, and sometimes, I'm just straight up embarrassed (i'm glad when he goes boomy, but my throughput still stinks!). So critique and analyze away, I really need it.

Use wild growth more, keep a higher uptime on lifebloom, harmony is at about 70% uptime, remember to keep it up, it's bonus healing. I would suggest using Dream of Cen, and Soul of the Forest for the majority of the encounters, just wrath during low damage periods, and use swiftmend+wild growth and get high on the meters. I realise keeping a high uptime on lifebloom isn't always priority, as you can see from these logs, I was slacking on it just because the tanks weren't really taking much damage, but I was also missing out on free regrowths.

Looking at your logs you are overhealing the content, dont need 4 healers for 14 man.

 

Other than that you need to work on a few things.

 

Your uptime on lifebloom is low (62%), lifebloom procs clearcasting which gives you free regrowths, its important you try to keep lifebloom uptime close to 100%. Also try to keep wild mushroom up for close to 100% aswell since its very mana efficient.

 

Your Harmony uptime is low aswell (70%) i would say this is even more important than lifebloom uptime because having harmony up equals alot of extra output as a resto druid.

 

Also it seems like theres quite few casts in general, at somepoints in the fight you were just standing there doing nothing, you should always cast something during the fight, if you dont need to heal at one specific moment you should cast wrath and moonfires.

 

An easy way to keep track of the uptime on various spells is the use of weakauras, makes the job more simple.

Thank you both for your feedback. That fight was Hans & Frans, and I've been working on healing better on the move.

 

Here are a few more logs from the past couple of days. Please, critique away! Please note some of these are from pugs. I'm Zingaraa

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be 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+

      So with the new Patch on our doorstep, I was wondering if anyone knows how the patch will change stat priorities. Because of the nerf to 2ndary  stats.

      Good morning!

      I would like to have a bit of help from you guys if you are able to help me. Unfortunately, I do not have a logs right now so I cannot link them. I will link however my armory to see my gear and stats.

      I am running into  serious issues at the Odyn HC fight. My hsp is very low (under 200k) and I am running out of mana very fast by faste two I am low on mana and I have difficulties to maintain it. I tried to find the problem myself but I am not sure what is wrong. I mostly cast riptide, chain heal, healing wave and totems, and some healing rain. 

      Can anyone give me any tips without a log? 

      Thank you very much

      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!
