Restoration Druid Weakaura

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys,


I thought it was about time that i shared these weakauras with everyone!

I have spent numerous hours scouring the internet looking for an aura that worked for me, but sadly i could not find one!

My guild master was nice enough to help me create my own.

let me know what you guys think all the info is in the video link below.


Thanks guys!

Isn't it distracting for you to have all the buttons glowing and shouting all the time?

I use WeakAuras for my resto druid but I divided them into three sections:

- CDs bar that has my healing and utility spells and shows their CDs in seconds (without glowing and stuff, just plain number of seconds)

- three icons (Lifebloom, Mushroom, Harmony uptime) with the uptime bar and a one time sound / minor glowing while they are off CD - because these abilities should be kept working all the time.

- two icons of Ironbark and Cenarion Ward showed only when they are on CD (with a timer).


This WA build keeps me aware to my CD and spells usage. Having all the spells and abilities glowing and shouting all the time, I think that I would just ignore them. But it's definitely just my personal opinion and my personal preferences.

i definitely see where you are coming from pandacho. but for me it works i like having all the auras in my face so i don't miss anything. as far as sounds go i know which sounds are for each aura so 9/10 times i don't even look at the auras but when i see something bouncing in the corner of my eye i know I'm missing something. id love to see what auras you are using, from what i can tell from your post i have tried something like your auras and it didn't quite work for me but its all personal preference really.


Thanks for the comment!

Thanks, Slim smile.png

Well, my druid auras looks like this right now (Watching first minute is enough to get an idea) :



My healing frames are that big because it's a CMs set.


In addition I use 'assist to focus' macro for Moonfire and Wrath so I wouldn't waste time for Tab'ing enemies or accidentally dps something wrong.

Sorry for later response. My party/raid frames are VuhDo frames.


May I ask whether it's a Threat Meter on the right side of your UI? I can't see it properly on video.

I think it's very important with WeakAuras (with all UI really) that, in an effort to ensure you don't miss anything, you put so much on your screen that you can't  be aware of it all. Put one WA on your screen somewhere near the middle and you'll be aware of it at all times. Put 5 next to each other and there's a good chance that you won't immediately notice a change to any one of them. 


With this in mind my approach to WAs (and I make a set for all the classes and specs I play) is to have everything that I don't need to handle disappear from my UI completely, with icons popping up when they need to be noticed and going away once they've been dealt with. If you need pre-warning for something before it actually happens (like ensuring that LB/Harmony doesn't actually drop off) then have a timer/progress bar only display with a few seconds to go, and so on. This makes for a cleaner UI overall and ensures that you're aware of changes (changes are always what's vital) with nothing important ever getting swamped by the normal running or status quo.

This is the most amazing UI I ever saw (it's not a statement, it's my personal opinion)



I'm going to redo my druid UI in this style and once I'll finish, will make the same for shaman and disc.

      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
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [1/7H] OTHER EVENTS

      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.
