Mana conservation as Resto.

4 posts in this topic

Hey there.

 

A few days ago I posted my issue on Reddit, summed up - I'm having issues with mana and understanding what I'm doing wrong with my spell usage.

 

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/guilds/usercalendar/127018 (https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/NPGCnfZF67zyhB3H consist of my newest logs, please refer to the N BRF encounters)

Some of my known issues: There are some fights where I did not drop Mana Tide, this is/was a communication issue as I'm new to the guild I'm in. I'm trying to switch from mana potions to channeled ones. I do not use Weak Auras - something I'm interested in learning and getting used to.

 

I usually refer to Icy Veins for stat priority and the likes, but I'm not sure how reliable it's information is anymore. I do not know of any actual websites or other sources dedicated to Shaman healing.

 

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Hi, Legendairy and welcome to the forums!

 

First of all I looked into your Armory. For some reason your gear looks completely off. Is it your resto gear? Did you chose it or just use the only pieces that dropped for you?

 

The main secondaries for resto shaman are Mastery and Haste, Multistrike is somewhere behind but close. Crit is worse than all above and Versatility is not even taken on account. Your gear has lots of Crit and Versatility and only a bit of Mastery. If you so unlucky with loot, you should consider to use crafted gear with Mastery and Haste. 

 

You have two low level enchants - this is not good.

 

You should change one trinket to the crafted one - it provides loads of mana.

 

In tier 6 of your talents you should use EB, not PE for the same reason - Spirit buff.

Why do you use Totemic Persistence if you are playing with High Tide and not CBT? It's pretty useless in this composition.

 

I went through your logs - everything looks pretty solid. You already explained your HTT issues, so I wouldn't talk about it. Ascendance could be higher in some fights like Iron Maidens for example - only 2 casts in 14 min.

 

In my opinion, the cause of your mana problem is absence of the crafted trinket and EB talent and 'wrong' secondaries on gear.

I did not drop Mana Tide

 

 If we still have mana tide and I didn't see it in my spell book I'm deleting my shaman right now.

Thanks for the response.

 

My Shaman was boosted not too long ago, and I've been struggling to get gear - much less proper gear. I've recently settled into a new guild, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to prioritize the correct stats at this point. There's been a lot of trialing, which results with me getting non-ideal gear, but it's still replacing something around 630 or 650ilvl.

 

I'll upgrade the enchants.

Someone suggested in my Reddit thread to use PE. I didn't like the idea of it myself, and had mainly played around with EoE and EB. I'll go back to trying EB. Same thing with Totemic Persistence, a suggested change that I usually don't go with.

 

I do have the crafted trinket, so I'll go back to using that and look to upgrading it as well.

 

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

 

And sorry about the Mana-Tide typo. Healing Tide. Haha.

      Me and my raid group are still progressing through Mythic EN, though we have Nyth, Elerethe, and Ursoc all easily on farm. I'm consistently parsing very low for my ilvl, and consistently losing out in dps to a lower ilvl shaman of the same spec. Despite usually having better buff uptimes than him and better cd usage he parses much better than me. Usually the main difference i find is he gets off way more stormstrikes than me. Recently I've started mashing that button almost nonstop in fights, sometimes sacrificing a few seconds of buff time to get off more stormstrikes, but the results seem to be about the same as before. 
      Below you'll find logs that have both of us in them, as well as mine and his armory links. I'm Bigboyee and the other shaman is Cyrashapa. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
      The Ursoc fight in particular on this one: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/vnpwPdAC7FrHxcWV#type=damage-done&fight=12
      Ursoc and Odyn were the only clean fights we had here:https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/YfgFwB3rzH6mV1jM/#fight=2&type=damage-done

      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
