[Resto] Increasing my healing output

3 posts in this topic

Hello there,


I've recently switched from Protection Warrior to Resto druid for my raiding group and I've been pugging a lot trying to gear up. I've received comments that my healing output should be higher on certain fights (i.e. Imperator). I've figured that I need to increase my lifebloom uptime (it's varying between 30% and 70% depending on the fights), so that's something I'll be keeping a close eye on. My harmony uptime is about 85%+, never lower I believe, so I'll be working a better WA to keep track of that as well. I need to change my weapon enchant (kind of a nub moment there where I confused the two enchants! :D)Is there another thing I need to work on?


I've tried to work with different talent (DoC/NV and SotF/Incarnation) but my healing stays relatively the same whichever I choose.



Logs: (H HM Pug)


1. Is my healing output too low considering my ilvl?

2. How to go about improving it (especially on Imp H).


Thank you for your time and help.

When looking at your armory page the first thought that came in to mind is that you need to fix your enchants as you are currently missing most of them. Personally i would get warsong echant instead of shadowmoon.

Also i found soul of the forest and rampant growth to give me a much higher healing output on most fights. Germination would just eat up my mana way too fast and i would be left with nothing for the last phase. Also i see that you used wild growth with your germination build. If you're going to play germination you should stick to using rejuvination. This is also one of the reasons i find SotF so useful it's the only reason to be using that ability as it increases it's healing by 50%. In my oppinion SotF and rempant growth is the best way to go.

As for my thoughts on your healing it is ok, altho little bit on the low side but not too much. I don't even remember my own output on imp anymore.

I find your grp setup to be kinda odd tho... you have 2 resto druids ( both germ build) and 2 holy priests. I would consider having atleast 1 of the priests going disc. If both of the druids go SotF you should have NO problem with AoE heals at all. My guild runs 2 druids 1 pally and 1 disc priest (fyi. disc priests are OP). That way we have 2 strong single target healers that worry about the tank so us druids can just goof around healing the raid and throwing ironbark at the tanks when needed. If we do a normal run we usually have 1 druid switching to dps because 4 healers is just waaaaaay too much. Also you guys should bring a few more dps. When we run 4 healers we bring 16+ ppl. I don't see how you would need 4 healers with only 12 ppl in the raid.

Do try to keep your lifebloom up at all times as the free regrowth never hurts. Also if you are not using it already i would strongly advice you to get VuhDo or Clique to make healing easier and faster.

Thanks. I wasn't in charge of the group to be honest, was a PUG. I've tried to go Rampant Growth + SotF. I'm not so sure about the rejuv being consume. Do you only use swiftmend when the rejuv is about to expire?


I'm using ElvUI with mouseover macro at the moment.


I've been running with Warsong until like last week where I switched to Shadowmoon; I'm incline to follow your advice there because I feel like I've got more problem with my mana now that I've switched to a spirit enchant.


Thanks for the tips.

      Goooooood Afternoon Droods!
      I've healed forevvvver but only been restro'ing since legion (dirty boosted char lol) I concerned about my throughput within HC atm.
      It's a weird one, I'm the raid 'healer leader' and coordinate cooldowns and I fill the healer spot between a Holy Priest and Holy Pala. We don't struggle with healing and are progressing just fine...but I feel I can and should be able to give more.
      I can clear Mythic+ without problems with a CRIT/MAST build, HoT stacking, and I run a HASTE/CRIT build for raids, using SoF/SM synergy with WG/Dreamwalker to try and blanket, easing the pressure that Priest if feeling on the raid and spot heals of Pala.
      Here is a typical HASTE/CRIT build for raiding -
      YES - that is a legendary for my OS guardian spec while I was LFR'ing last week -_- seriously salty about it hahaha
      Here are my latest rankings -
      Here is a log of my guild raid team that I really want to do well for, completed normal -
      and here is the most our guild do in HC - (still progression so only three kills)
      and here is a complete HC run I managed -
      I'm after opinions and thoughts on stat weights, ideas on builds/rotations in general or on specific bosses....mainly though I would like your views on how to synergise my spot within the healer team of the guild, be that for me to squeeze in around them, or to exert my will upon them and get them to change for the greater good...all valid hypnotises will be tested and I will post results and logs back up on here.
      Look forward to hearing from you all, hope your loot's all BiS this week!!
      Your friendly Resto friend.....

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
