Help for my guild's MW please

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi there, 

 

So the mistweaver monk in my guild is an awesome raider, she is never standing in fire, dodges the mechanics, and generally won't die to much of anything. This makes her an extremely valuable player in our group. Unfortunately, her numbers seem to be a bit low amongst our healers. None of my officers or myself have ANY experience playing a mistweaver, so we are at a stand still on how to help her. Granted, she just got her 4 piece and I'm sure they will increase once she learns how to utilize that a bit more, and she was also pretty sick when she was raiding this week, but I was hoping somebody could look these logs over and just give some helpful tips and tricks, and maybe see what she's doing (or should be doing) to increase her heals. Thank you so much in advance!

I wouldn't call myself an expert on the topic, so I'll leave more specific advice to the experts. However I do have some experience with MW so hopefully I can give a few pointers. 

 

First thing I notice on the logs is that your MW is competing against 2 absorb classes (Disc priest and H Pally). In the Xhul'horac parse you're 4 healing it with I believe 17 people? Given how much you overgear that fight (most ilvls around 715+), 4 heals definitely feels like overkill. The way monk raid heals work is rather random; you spread Renewing Mist which then jumps to lowest health player within range. Your raid healing spell Uplift, that heals the people with your renewing mist on them. If you have other healers who are constantly shielding people, and a shaman who has a LOT of smart heals, most of monks healing here where you outgear the content is going to be overhealing.

 

Only thing I can say about spec is that I would go with Chi Torpedo over Rushing Jade Wind. It's SO powerful and costs no mana, and works well with the first tier Celerity.

The trinkets are a little weird, I'm not sure if they're just defaulted to her because that's all she can get? I'm sure there's better MW trinkets in HFC. From what I understand, haste and mastery are poor for MW in comparison to Multi & crit, and I don't think mana should be a problem to get much use from the second trinket (someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).

 

I find on my monk with so much available spirit, chi brew talent and mana tea, it's very very hard to go OOM. I think if her mana is comfortable she could be a lot more agressive with mana useage. For example, using surging mist on low people to generate more chi so she can be spending chi more agressively too. Personally I don't like the mana tea glyph, because it feels like you're forced to use mana tea on cd in order to make the most of your mana tea stacks. I feel like it's worth the cost to channel the tea for a few seconds of down time, as long as you remember to do it before you actually run out of mana.

 

Hopefully this helps, anyone feel free to correct me :)

He/She needs more gear with multistrikes so that renewing mist management isn't as taxing. Considering multitrike is at around 1200, my guess is that the shaman's smart heals are eating away at her hps. Get her more MS and the lil panda should be ok.

With enough spirit, Rushing Jade Wind is very powerful, and keeping it up during heavy raid-wide AoE is a LOT of healing.  The 4pc is not overkill, it is really powerful and can save peoples lives in a pinch by uplift > ReM immediately, putting the extend life on the person targeted with ReM BEFORE the Extend Life healing goes out, giving them a large amount of healing.  That being said, 4 healing a 17 man heroic kill with a disc and H Pally really doesn't help your MW numbers.  Their gear is not very well optimized, as they should be going for MS and then haste or crit wherever possible.  Glyph wise they need to get rid of the mana tea glyph immediately as it is a loss of mana to use.

Thank you, I showed this to her, and she really appreciates all the input. We also know that Heroic is a joke now, and we overgear it by a lot. We're in the middle of building a mythic roster and we just happen to have recruited our mythic healers before we could finish out the DPS. This is highly encouraging going into mythic that maybe the numbers will see a drastic increase when the heals aren't getting soaked up.

Mythic Mistweaver here! 

 

I have disagree with what was said about RJW earlier entirely, and in fact insist that you don't listen to it.

 

Rushing Jade Wind is the go-to talent for mistweaver on that tier and does absolutely astounding levels of healing if you use it correctly. On any fight where there are the number of targets necessary in range (on most fights if there's not stacking you can just go to melee to use it) it's a very strong heal. Off the top of my head there are moments on every fight where it can/should be used on heroic (in mythic there are even more mechanics which warrant practically using it the entire fight): 

 

Hellfire Assault: When a Gorebound Terror casts Felfire Volley. 

Fel Reaver: Position yourself in melee as much as possible and use RJW on Pounding, For Artillery on tanks - basically keep it up the entire fight during the ground phase. 

Hellfire High Council: On Felstorm, Ghost Phase, Mirror Images (ranged stack), Final Phase with all the marks.

Kilrogg: Death Throes in melee, or while moving as a group with ranged.

Kormrok: With careful positioning you can hit most of melee with it during Pound, Hands, Splash. Most of the damage on this is AOE, so you can use it for that. 

Gorefiend: If you manage your mana properly to start feast with 100% mana, you can and should keep 100% uptime on Rushing Jade Wind for feast of souls' duration. 

Shadow Lord Iskar: Fel Chakram AoE, Focused Blast

Socrethar: In melee in P1 as required, In p2 for the Apocalypse and as required. 

Tyrant Velhari: In melee after the Tempest to top them up, Every Edict, As often as possible and P2, and as much as P3 as possible.

Fel Lord Zakuun: Basically all of the disarmed phase and when seeds are going out and the final burn.

Xhul'horac: For Black Hole (help soak yourself, with it up), And during the final burn as often as possble. 

Mannoroth: Not much use as first, but when he awakens and the raid stacks by his side, for Fel Hellstorm, After Gaze, In the final phase basically all the time. 

Archimonde: The raid should be stacked as soon as desecrate starts, so for Desecrate, Allure, Shackled Torment, Any stray Wroughts going through the raid, Demonic Feedback, Rain of Chaos - RJW can and should be used for all of these. 

 

As you can see, RJW is a huge healing boost and is on-demand and just requires a little thinking about positioning. As a Mistweaver you can be in melee, so you should whenever you can for using RJW to get the most out of it if there's no ranged stacking. Good RJW is in fact a large part of being a good mistweaver. 

 

In addition, your MW has the 4 set, and the 4 set is a huge source of healing for us. She should be using Renewing Mist on people who are taking, or will soon be taking damage, and trying to keep uptime on the Extend Life buff on the currently active tank as a sort of beacon of light. This makes RJW even stronger a choice, as it generates chi which you can then spend on Uplift and not only do more healing from that, but more healing through extend life. 

 

Since your MW will not be using Chi Torpedo, she should be using Tiger's Lust instead of Celerity, since it's an excellent raid utility to be able to use and is also one of the marks of a good mistweaver. 

 

Trinket-wise the demonic phylactery is very strong for mistweaver, as it reduces the cost of RJW, which is otherwise very costly. It's a good choice all round. 

 

I do agree that the mana tea glyph HAS to go, and that she should be more aggressive. This should mostly be covered with more aggressive use of RJW. 

 

If you'd like a log to look at and compare and see what sort of differences there are between our healing that she can examine and see what she needs to do more or less of, here's a link to one of my own hc mannoroth kills:

And here's the HC Archimonde:

      I'm sure you're wondering what the heck our name means?  Fáinní na Darach is gaelic irish for Rings of the Oak.  No, we're not Irish; in fact, our membership has a vast span ethnicity, we just thought it was a cool name that really captures our experience and mindset.  We're not in a rush (oak trees don't grow overnight) and we're not fickle.
      The officer core has been raiding since before World of Warcraft was released, and we have been raiding through each expansion.  As you can imagine, we are older (most in our 30s), we have families, and we have priorities.  That said, we don't try to put the game before real life, but with that comes the responsibility of when it's time to raid, then it's time to raid.  Our raid schedule is pretty flexible, but we typically stick to Fri/Sun/Mon 7-10pm EST.
      We really need ranged dps, but if you're looking for the type of community we bring to the game, then we'd love to have you and we'll make a spot for you.  Right now we're progressing through Heroic EN.  It's hard since we have to pug ranged each week, and it slows down the start time, but we remain positive and have fun.  We've moved through Normal ToV and members have downed Helya in pugs, but as a guild we haven't, so we're looking forward to that too.
       
      If you are interested in joining our ranks and meeting some relaxed people, then find us in game, drop a reply on here.  Hope to hear for you!

      Any role We are interested in more classes, but these are our missing spots at the moment.
      Order of the Silverflame has been about since vanilla although we had a bit of a break in Burning Crusade. We’re a 30-man raiding guild and we plan to remain that way.
      We are a friendly group who enjoy World of Warcraft and enjoy raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We expect members of the guild to enjoy the game as much as we do and to take part in raids and maintain a 70-85% attendance per month.
      There are a few things, we highly value above everything else: friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      Currently –
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      We also run optional runs on Fridays when needed. (usually on heroic mode)
      Saturday is left for older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Although we are a 30-man guild, we usually run an extra group, to get the most people raiding, help newer raiders learn the Silverflame’s way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays.
      Our current progress is 7/7 in Emerald Nightmare in Heroic Mode and 3/7 in Mythic Mode.
      If you're interested in joining Order of the Silverflame, please fill in our application form, located at http://forum.silverflame.org/index.php/board,2.0.html , whisper Athlioss@Draenor or add my battletag Athlios#2283.
      PS. We're always positive to group applications or guild merging discussions.
      Also we're open to social applications and for Legion raiders' applications.

      ABOUT US
      Procrastination is an ambitious semi-hardcore raiding guild, based on Draenor EU, founded in mid 2015, shortly after the release of Hellfire Citadel, under the name ‘Elite Slackerz’ after a bunch of old raiding buddies decided to transfer servers and start fresh. The guild has been renamed to ‘Procrastination’ in May of 2016.
      Our roster consists of experienced mythic and heroic raiders, some of whom have raided from as early as Wrath, and although we expect silence and focus during pulls, we aim to keep the atmosphere during breaks and outside of raiding relaxed and full of bants and laughter. 
      OUR GOALS
      With Heroic Emerald Nightmare being on farm for months now, we are currently focusing on clearing Trials of Valor  Heroic and forming a mythic raiding team ready to take on the rest of Emerald Nightmare and Trials of Valor. 
      We aim to have a full mythic raiding team ready for Nighthold and storm it upon release. 
      WHAT WE OFFER
      As a guild we offer a serious raiding environment and a relaxed atmosphere full of bants, horrible jokes and laughter during breaks and outside of raiding. We keep our raiding team small and good, under performing members and trials, regardless of their rank and status in the guild, are asked to step aside for a fight, or even the night, so the guild can progress. 
      Additionally, we use a personal loot system so everyone is guaranteed as much loot as RNGesus deems them worthy of. If anyone receives an item they do not need, the raid is asked to roll on it, highest roll wins; Although this is how things are usually done, it is still worth mentioning that the way unneeded personal loot is shared is entirely up to the owner of the loot. 
      The guild leadership, however, strongly encourages that the loot be shared with the raider who would benefit from it the most. 
      Outside of raiding, we are still pushing Mythic+ dungeons on a daily basis, doing occasional alt runs, and we even have a handful of members interested in competitive PvP. 
      If not online, our members can be found on the guild Discord server, often playing other games together.
      WHAT WE ASK OF OUR MEMBERS & TRIALS
      --Attitude--
      As a member of Procrastination you are the representation of the guild, regardless of your position within the guild, therefore you are expected to have a friendly and respectful attitude towards both your guild mates and the people you meet out in the world. Toxicity in any way, shape or form will not be tolerated. 
      Procrastination has its own sense of humor, so future members are expected to have one as well. When it comes to joking around, if you can dish it out, you better be able to take it. 
      --Dedication--
      We are looking for raiders who strive to pull the most out of their class/spec and are constantly looking for new ways to improve themselves, and the guild. All members are expected to be able to not only accept constructive criticism and learn from it but to also not shy away from expressing their opinion or giving constructive criticism to other raiders (including the leadership of the guild). New ideas, suggestions and constructive criticism is always welcome and appreciated, especially during progression runs. 
      --Attendance--
      As we strive to become a Mythic raiding guild, attendance is important. All our raiders and trials are required to attend a minimum of 80% of raid nights - meaning they are not allowed to miss out on more than two raid nights a month if they do not have a good excuse for it and would like to keep their spot on the team.
      Additionally, all raiders and trials are expected to have a stable internet connection and be able to join the Discord server during raid nights. 
      --Communication--
      We are an international guild, and as such, we expect our members to be able to communicate in English both in guild chat and in Discord so that everyone can understand each other. Raiders, of course, are expected to have a working microphone and able to cut out any background noises by switching to push-to-talk if necessary. 
      RAIDING SCHEDULE
      We raid for three hours three nights a week, however during progression raid nights can sometimes be extended by another 30 minutes depending on how we’re doing on a boss. 
      All raid nights are server time and not subject to change.
      Monday 20.30 - 23.30
      Wednesday 20.30 - 23.30
      Saturday 20.30-23.30  
      RECRUITMENT STATUS
      Procrastination is currently recruiting 870+ ranged DPS, however exceptional raiders of any other role will always be considered. 
      THE LIFE OF A TRIAL
      A Trial in Procrastination lasts a maximum of 6 raid nights, trials are expected to attend every raid night and treat every raid night as a progression night - meaning they are expected to bring their own food, flasks, pre-pots, pots and come fully enchanted and gemmed. 
      Again, we use a personal loot system, so as a trial you will not be starved of loot, unless you have really bad RNG and there is no loot to be shared around. 
      CONTACT
      If you are interested in joining us, or simply need more information, you’re welcome to contact Procrastination’s guild leader in game (Betteh), via BattleTag (Ririxia#2172), join our Discord server and poke someone from the leadership until you get the answers you seek, or simply apply through our website :)
