Overhealing on Guardians in EN

8 posts in this topic

Hi there.

Got in Emerald Nightmare last night and downed 6/7 normal with my guardian druid
After the raid, the other tank and the raidleader approached me saying that I wasn't playing any good, seeing as I took alot of healing and overhealing. I was never in any real danger of dying as I had top priority on ironfur and using my cooldowns wisely.
I tried to explain that this was because of my mastery stacking, that I do take more healing and the heals done on me does more, therefore the overhealing is high because the crits are higher. 

Is this just me being wrong, or is this me being bad?

Very nature of guardian druid makes you to take more healing. And you were totally correct about mastery. If you had like 20% mastery and took 120m healing it is the same as other tank would take 100m healing. You are ranking healers dream - you take more dmg and get more healing :D

Furthermore I'll add that different tanks take different amount of damage. In WoD I've seen balance between self healing and damage taken. DKs were taking A LOT of damage, but they had insane amounts of healing. Where lets say warriors pretty much did not have healing, but they were taking way less dmg.

The extra healing is attributed to the druid not to the healer, it shows up as Nature's Guardian or something like that on the druid's healing meters. 

 

Not really sure what you can do to control how much you get overhealed; the vast majority of the healing you do is in frenzied regen (only heals a portion of the damage you've taken, so it only overheals when it overlaps with other healers) and the healing from mastery. By its nature the mastery will overheal a lot, because it is applied after the healer heals you, so it's basically always going to be the last 15% of a heal you receive, applied as a separate instance, after the brunt of a heal before it. 

Basically, your overhealing is largely going to be a result of the actions of the people healing you.

You're neither wrong, nor bad.

As said above, it is simply how Guardian works this expansion.

I mean if I DK is overhealing himself a lot then there's a good chance he's not timing his death strikes well (for example). It can be relevant for tanks but isn't particularly for Guardian.

      A little bit of info about us:

Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.

      - 25 traits at the very least.
      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
