[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 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.

      Hey guys, had a sick lootday today... I ended up getting 3 upgrades having a hard time to decide which two to use.
       
      I've got:
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=139330/heightened-senses ilvl 880
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=137419/chrono-shard ilvl 880
      and http://www.wowhead.com/item=138222/vial-of-nightmare-fog ilvl 885

      I've read that Chrono Shard has weak procc chance, but the stats are as right as they get..

      But then again the procc heal from Nightmare is amazing.

      Any suggestions or calculations out there?

      Thanks!

      Hey all! I've been maining a resto driud for about three expansions and I'm loving Legion! I thought I was getting the hang of raid healing, stacking crit & haste instead of haste and mastery, unless I'm running Mythic +, but today I was completely blown out the water by a pug resto with 15 less ilvls than me. Looking at logs, it looks like he was relying heavily on Wildgrowth (while not going oom... witchcraft!). But I feel like I'm really missing something about my class here and was hoping you wonderful folks could look over my logs and tell me just what I'm doin' wrong:
      My Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/proudmoore/Zingaraa/advanced
      Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/compare/qKghL8H1cNrfvjpJ/qKghL8H1cNrfvjpJ#fight=1,1&source=9,-2
       
      Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Additionally, random question, when you switch to cultivation & spring blossoms, is it worth it to also switch to gear thats more mastery & haste?
       
      Thanks in advance! <3

      I use a logitech G700 mouse and I bind the 4 buttons on the side to numbers on the spell bar.
      When I set up VuhDo I can bind left, middle, right to spells but I need to bind more than 3 spells.
      In VuhDo there is a "Mouse" section and a "Keys Global" section where numbers 1-16 can be bound do spells. I'm not entirely sure what this means but I tried binding 1 to rejuvenation but if I hover over the person I need to heal in VuHdo and either press one or the side mouse button bound to 1 it only ever casts the spell on my target ignoring VuHdo.
      Is there something in VuhDo I am doing wrong or another addon that supports my in game keybinds?
      One possibility I guess is to just use left, middle, and right only and then set up Shift + left, shift + middle, and shift + right or alt etc. as modifiers. I am guessing this is how other people do it? It's a bummer about not being able to use the side buttons I usually use for 1, 2, 3 etc. but this might be my only option :(
       
      Edit: For other people stumbling on this I wanted to mention I created the groups/frames using the VuhDo quick start guide on the shammy forum and it helped me make sense of the ~8 panels I was looking at when I first installed the addon.
