[Resto] Tackeling Meters

6 posts in this topic

Hello Folks,


I'm looking for some advice.


Currently I'm that lovely druid that tanks, heals and boomkins as and when everything is needed. Currently progressing on Xhul heroic and meters are just simply terrible! I'm getting beaten by both tanks and the 2 other healers (Disco and Holy Paladin). 


Now let me also say that I really don't care about meters in healing. I think it is a completely wasted tool when it comes into the flight of who the better healer is. However my GL is now commenting that it needs to be upped.


On this fight I hardly find something to heal until P3. With the Holy Paladin doing the tank healing and the disco helping I find myself wrathing until fire comes in, a quick rejuvenation on them (maybe a swiftmend if someone isn't good). Maybe a Geneisis if it's needed but then it's back to wrath. I feel like there is so much downtime I just can't seem to increase anything.


Would anyone be able to look into it and see what's what?



Thanks you.

There really isn't much to do for Restodruids during P1 and 2. Just try and Wild Growth when people are hit by Fel Surge and keep your Lifebloom on the off tank (the one tanking the big add). Other than that there really isn't much to do if everyone else avoids dmg well enough. You might wanna suggest to be the one in charge of keeping the fire in check during P2 to your GL, or alternatively you can kite the Voidwalker adds in P2/3 away from the range-dps so they don't have to mind them as much. Other than that, there's not much you can do, especially with a disc in you team dry.png


Once P3 hits, you should in theory be at full mana, so just cast Wild Growth on CD and keep Rejuve up on everyone. Announce your Tranq when necessary, and keep Incarnation ready for P4, then, if you still have enough mana, spam Regrowth if necessary, otherwise just Rejuve+Wild Growth as much as possible. Pre-hotting can be vital, you never know when a Fel Annihilation might hit.


Also, make sure to have more than 95% uptime on your lifebloom. It costs next to nothing, does a decent amount of healing (even if it's overheal most of the time), and Omen of Clarity is a thing. It doesn't have to be on a tank, you can just constantly swap it (you wanna do that anyway once you have T18-4p bonus).



Bottomline, unless you get a really good tranq off, your HpS will not look very well, that's just the nature of this fight for resto. 80% of your healing will happen in P3/4, so naturally your meters will tell you that you suck rolleyes.gif

You should be doing it 2 heals maybe. Currently you're in a state where for 4 mins average damage taken per second (group) is 160k. Tanks are doing 60k hps, that's leaving 100k dtps. It's just enough for 2 healers to take. And yeah, Xhul is the kind of fight where you have nothing to heal half of the fight, and where everyone is dying for the rest of the fight. If your raid team can cover second part - I mean not fuck up with mechanics, with 13 ppl you'll be just fine with 2 heals here. Expecially when your tanks are DK and Pally.


HPS is a good meter, it just needs to be taken in a different perspective than dps. You can't heal if ppl aren't taking damage. And if heals have low hps - it probably means you've got too many healers.

You bring a resto druid on Xhul just for the last phase. Until then, DPS. I see you're good at using Wrath. Keep 100% uptime on Moonfire as well on everything but Imps. And be useful to your raid by taking tasks such as clearing fire, kiting adds and spawning Black Holes at convenient spots, so that the other players can deal more damage. Meters are a terrible tool indeed.


Dream of Cenarius is bad. Use Heart of the Wild if you need even better power healing in the end, otherwise use Nature's Vigil.

      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.

      Good morning Icy Veins,
      I've been watching some videos to improve my UI from a resto druid perspective. I found this video from Method vs Xavius from the POV of their holy paladin. This video shows a lot of different addons, but i'm mainly curious about the addon which is used for the raid frames and on click healing.
      My assuption this is Vudho or Healbot in combination with Elvui?, but i would like to have your feedback. This friday i'll be starting to set up my UI so any help you guys can provide me would be perfect.
      My main goal is to have a almost standard single player UI, but a more slick and healer friendly UI for mythic + and Raiding.
      Thank you :)
      PS. If you have any video's/screens of your own UI (resto druid prefered)  i'm happy to copy it over ;)

      Hello Icy Veins,
      i started doing HC raids  the past days and realized i get a huge mana problem when bosses are at ~30% often. I already read the resto druid guide and always get to use "Innervate" twice a fight but around the execute phase i drop to 0 mana,
      Latest Log:
      Would be great if you could give some advices or other tips.

      If you have any questions feel free to message me in-game at; Collybuds#1702 or just submit an application on the guild website which will be reviewed.

      I see just the two BiS Trinkets in the shaman Restoration Guide. But i'm on the search for a priority list of trinkets from the "best" to the "worst". I know probably it not really , but maybe few suggestions. Aktually i have the trinkets:  Flask of the Solemn Night on Mythic 6 (1292 Int) and An'she's Infusion of Light as Warforged Itemlvl 845 (Stats: 1177 Int & 915 Crit). Should I keep these two or change one of them against Vial of Nightmare Fog i have this in the normal version but Titanforged (Stats: 986 Crit). But would probably lose too much intelligence if i change one of them?
      (Sorry 4 the bad EN)
