Resto Druid Challenge Mode Gold Videos

1 post in this topic

Here is a Youtube playlist of all the videos I made for our Gold Challenge mode runs

Our comp was

Prot Warrior

Resto Druid

DK, Rogue, Mage - DPS

I'm sorry I won't have a detailed guide as Zagam has made in the warlock forums, but maybe these videos give you some insight on what to do or if you enjoy watching this point of view.

The only video I am missing is Gate of the Setting Sun because it was our first one and I was more worried about not letting down my teammates while doing this (because at the time I didn't think I good enough to do all of them gold) then worrying about getting the recording to work properly/ not make me lag.

Since then I have a new computer set up and can more easily record things, but I'm not sure if we will go back and re-do these times or not.

Regardless, enjoy.

Some minor things to note, For pretty much every dungeon I defaulted these glyph:

inv_glyph_majordruid.jpgGlyph of Blooming - I chose this glyph because Challenge modes reminded me of when I PvP'd pre-MoP. Having this glyph made sense to me since it allowed me to more easily control its bloom on the tank taking burst damage on top of the extra healing the glyph provides from a bloom. Plus =, its much more beneficial to let it bloom while you are using heavy regrowth/healing touch on the tank to help top him off during heavy spikes

inv_glyph_majordruid.jpgGlyph of Stampeding Roar - I chose this glyph because I didn't find rebirth as useful since they come back at 70% HP, which was sufficient enough for me to heal back when I'm expecting it. With this glyph it gave me more "breathing room" to cast stampedeing roar without having to worry about the position of my teammates.

inv_glyph_majordruid.jpgGlyph of Regrowth - This glyph is a no brainer, especially with the lower gear levels we had at the start of the expac and with glyph of blooming. 100% crit to Regrowth for constant tank spike damage? Can you say "Hooray LS procs?" =D


T1: Feline swiftness more almost all. I used displacer beast on Gate of teh Setting sun, just because i didn't trust myself rushing down to the last boss and dieing because I'm too stupid to use the edges.

T2: Nature's Swfitness. Period. Always. No matter what you are doing as a Resto Druid, the others pale in comparison. Don't pick anything else.

T3: Usually Typhoon, never had a reason to even use most of these. Maybe I did, depends on the instance. In Siege I used Mass entanglement, but it was not really necessary because we didn't use the strategy anyway.

T4: Incarnation. I don't think the others give you as much burst healing as ToL. (FoN, maybe but meh, SotF, 50% haste to an already fast regrowth that could heal as much as HT when glyphed? meh. Gimme the insta RG and increased healing.)

T5: Ursol's vortex was a default, but if you're a better player then I am you can help your team out a bit with Mighty Bash for those much needed interrupts for tank damage. If you can do that, you're tank will love you forever. Remember to prioritize healing first. A dead group gets you no where.

T6: I first always learned and practiced an instance with Natures Vigil. It gave me more throughput when I felt I needed it. When I got use to the dungeon and got more synergy with the group (and when resetting to try for gold) I would switch to HotW. There were many places (SM, TotJS and SsB in particular) where I had to do quite a bit of DPS to help beat the timer. Mostly, for a big trash pack that the tank could stun lock for a while and I just hurricane my heart out for it.

Last thing to note, Stormstout Brewery had such a tight timer. I had to go boomkin for a trash pack at the very end to AoE (and also heal) then go back heals for the next trash pack, then go back boomkin for the boss. While DPSing the boss as boomkin, I would pop HotW and rejuv everyone while I DPS'd.

BTW: I'm a horrible DPS'r )=

      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), EPGP Lootmaster, 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
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [3/7H] OTHER EVENTS

      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.....

      I'm maining Resto Druid in Legion and I've been browsing the forums for advice and hints to improve my healing. I've found lots of information here so I thought I'd give back. One thing I failed to see anyone mention in a lot of the threads I read is the Artifact trait Dreamwalker. People were discussing ways to save mana and ways to improve their healing and I feel this accomplishes both. It's passive but I feel if you were to play close attention to making sure you have rejuv on the targets that have wild growth, you'll get much more healing out of those expensive wild growth casts. We all know the SW>WG>Flourish>EoG combo but if you prep your targets with rejuv beforehand, you can get even more healing out of this bread and butter combo. I just wanted to bring more attention to the trait because I didn't see anyone mention it. Also please feel free to leave any other tips you feel aren't being brought up often enough. Thanks guys.
