Hi there... first comment on the site. I just wanted to point out for your stat priorities listing that Dark Intent is being changed into a raid buff that increases spell power by 10%, and will no longer buff haste %. Therefore, it should probably be removed from your haste soft cap table. To my knowledge there will be no way (between 5.0.4 to the conclusion of the level 85 endgame) to reduce the second haste soft cap below 2005. Which makes me sad because it means I'm going to have to reforge on Tuesday. R.I.P. Cataclysm-era Dark Intent

Thank you for reporting this. It is my mistake, as I'm the one in charge of doing these stat sections :P I'm very much aware that Dark Intent is going away, I just forgot to update the Resto Druid stat section accordingly... We are going to release the Enhancement Shaman guide update soon, so the Dark Intent fix will be deployed at the same time.

First let me say that this is the first time visiting your site. I have played WOW almost since launch and for some reason I never ran across ya. But, I am glad I did. Excellent site. Easy to follow, detailed explinations, wonderful breakdowns of everything. Thank you for the effort and the posts about the addons. I have tried a UI's over the years and so far I am liking the ELV. Now on to healing.... I have to say that I had my NS and HT macroed since I can remember. But, for some weird reason I have this overwhelming desire to try Cenarion Ward. I guess in different situations each would have its benefits, but I am going to give it a shot and see what happens. I like new things, but not one for change when it comes to healing in dungeons and raids. I hate that Soul of the Forest is based on using SM. After reading what you wrote and thinking about it, it seems to me that it would be a tremendous loss in healing or using it when you really wouldnt need it just to be able to use SM. I hope they rework that later on. I'm sorry I am not being more specific with numbers and calcs, but my days of working the math and squeezing out .0000005 more % of a heal are over for me =)

I would recommend Decursive for useful add-ons. I use it for all of my characters, both non-healers and healers. It is a very simple add-on that notifies you of any debuffs that you can cleanse or dispel with the click of just one button.

Zombie same here on the ns+ht combo. I only used that for big heals. But cw+a glyped rg is also veru good. But 2behonst some gights ns and ht is still better. All depends on the other healer and tank classes. With the current fast hp dropping druid tanks cw and glyphed regrowth is almost a must. But wit a paladin tank a ns and ht still minght be better.

Zombie, bas: regarding Nature's Swiftness and Healing Touch, I have reworded things in the talents page to better emphasize the strength of Nature's Swiftness. I've also added a macro for Nature's Swiftness + Healing Touch. The updates should go up in the morning :) Regarding Decursive, it's something we've long considered as an option, but we eventually decided against it. The reason is that anything Decursive can do, you can do just as well ('d argue better) with raid frames and mouseover macros. Thank you for all the input, guys. It's immensely appreciated.

1.1.4. Decurse/Remove Poison

  • #showtooltip Nature's Cure
  • /cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][target=target] Nature's Cure
Using this macro will cast Posted Image Nature's Cure on your mouseover target, if they are a friendly player and they are not dead. Otherwise, it will cast Remove Corruption on your current target.


i think there is something not right ;)

Okay for some reason the NS/HT macro isn't working for me, I've tried like five different versions of it - every single time it will cast it ONLY when NS is available, and will not simply cast HT if NS is unavailable - I'm using Vuh'do and not really sure what I'm doing wrong. So any help is really appreciated!!!!

From a long-time NS+HT guy... I had to train myself to not always link NS to HT. I have NS bound to shift-mousewheel-up, HT bound to shift-mousewheel-down (vuhdo/mouseover/target/targetoftarget). Makes it really easy to roll both off, or if I want, just fire off the NS alone (with cyclone/hibernate, mostly.)

The nice thing here is that even if NS isn't up, the fast up/down roll will still fire off HT, and you have a sec to decide whether to let it finish or not.

I ahve that same keybind but for my paladin. (shift everything: mouse-up: Avenging wrath, mouse down: divine favor, mouse-click: GotAK)

For my druid I have NS set to 'F' and then fire off with a mouse click pretty quickly with the heal I want.

I have a question regarding the haste breakpoints, I can hit the 3043 haste breakpoint with no issue and was looking at my gear, I realised I can just about get to the next 6652 breakpoint if I gem for haste and reforge a bit. The question is, is it worth it? I have half spirit and half int gems in place at the moment and am wondering if I should replace them with haste to hit the next big breakpoint or will I be gimping myself to much to get there.

I dont personally think it is worth it. Right now with this entry gear you are going to want all the spirit and int you can get. Sacrificing that much, for a stat that essentially makes you waste more mana, is not that helpful

Are you sure about those numbers? I have 3079 haste rating from gear now which gives 7,24% haste. Add 5% to that and it's 12,24% haste with raid buff. So how does 3043 rating + 5% raid buff give 12,51% haste? Is it me not understanding something or is there something wrong with those calculations? As I feel rather comfortable with mana regeneration now I prefer mastery reforge and it's one less reforge for me if I assume soft haste cap with raid buff is 12,51% instead of whatever-number-I-get from 3043 haste rating.

These are the correct breakpoints. I don't know how the percentages work, but this is what everywhere I see agrees on.

First, I'd like to say that this guide has been very helpful to me. I took a break from WoW and haven't played since WotLK and your guide helped me to get accustomed to all of the changes since then. The only complaint i have is that on your spell rotation page you mention how lifebloom can only be used on a single target and pointed out that a glyph can put full stacks onto another target if casted. Later on in the guide you start to explain how to use Incarnation:Tree of LIfe and say to spam your lifebloom on as many targets as possible. Does incarnation make spamming that possible or is it a mistake in the guide?

Incarnation indeed allows you to place unlimited Lifeblooms on the raid. In addition to that it enhances Wild Growth by healing 2 additional targets and making regrowth and entangling roots an instant cast. Incarnation: Tree of Life
