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.

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).

      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day

      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+

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in this area of the forum and I was wondering if someone can help me.
      I've recently started logging my encounters - starting with my guilds ToV HC run.
      While I'm always usually in the top 2-5 people on the DPS meter during raids, the log I took for the ToV HC run show me to be in the lower percentiles for that fight for my gear level (879 equipped, 880 bagged). I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me and let me know if there is something wrong in my rotation? Anything is appreciated, I'd like to maximise what I can if there's more I can eek out of my spec!
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4p1dqz73WD86jnRL/#type=damage-done&source=5 (it's a live log so it'll be constantly updating while this run is going)
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68rytKvmMxH7RTkc#fight=17 (for some other information - here is my Kara clear for the week (with NB))
      Armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/darkspear/Eaglie/simple
      If any more information is required please let me know!
      Thanks guys!

      Hey guys,  first time posting up some healing logs.
      I got into Legion a few weeks ago, and just did a normal emerald nightmare run, had some great dps in the group, but was hoping some of the resto druids here could give me a bit of feedback on my healing?
      Hopefully this links  to all of the bosses, Xavius was my best one.

      Thanks guys
