Elemental Healing

5 posts in this topic

Hi there,

in my raid, there is an Elemental Shaman who uses his Healing Tide Totem to support us Healers.

I wondered, if using Ancestral Guidance while doing Damage wouldn't be a greater benefit.

Heres what i calculated:

Spellpower: 21.000, DPS about 54.000

Healing Tide Totem

4932 + 10.164 (48,4% of 21.000) = 15.096 x 5 People x 6 Ticks (according to Hastetables) = 452.880 Total Heal

Ancestral Guidance

54.000 DPS x 40% = 21.600 x 10 sec x 3 People = 648.000 Total Heal

If this Calculation is right, you just need to make about 38.000 DPS to be more effective using Ancestral Guidance over the Healing Tide Totem.

Edit: Not to forget the shorter Cooldown

Edit 2: And he could use Ascendeance

Now you are alowed to rip my poor math appart. ;-)

Greetings

Mutterkorn

I'm not too sure about this either. Dropping healing tide seems a little easier and perhaps more "situational" at the least, in terms of movement heavy damage periods.

We have a elemental shaman and a resto shaman in our group and between them they cant decide!

I think it depends heavily on the situation. Remember that while AG is over 3 people, HTT is for *five* and so can be more useful when there's wide and very heavy raid damage.

On the other hand, if the whole raid is stacked (like on Gara'Jal) you could use Conductivity. I think that's a lot less useful for Elemental than Enhancement though due to the cast time.

You are right about the number of people being healed. But HTT does it every 2 seconds and AG every Time you deal Damage to the three lowest raid members. Isn't that true?

So, at what rate does an elemental shaman deal Damage? Isn't that the question.

Ancestral Guidance

That depends on what buffs are up (e.g. Heroism) and whether it procs off Mastery procs. I have no idea about that.

Also, HTT is completely intelligent, but AG might not be - I don't know whether it targets the three **most damaged** members or just three **damaged** members of the raid. HTT is a true smartheal. Also, AG might not be useful in heavy movement fights (e.g. ... um... Garalon? Wind Lord?) whereas HTT can be forgotten about as soon as it's placed.

      Hey All,
      It has been a long time since I played WOW as I wasn't too into the past few expansions but I decided to pick up Legion. And since I have been back I have been struggling with one concept: Awareness. 
      Now most of this has to do with me essentially being completely new as the abilities and their rotations are not at all what I knew from 2 or 3 expansions ago. However I have been tanking with a warrior and healing with a priest; the main thing that is really tough for me right now is maintaining awareness while running my rotation and managing cooldowns. I doubt it has to do with whatever class I'm playing.
      So, I was wondering if any of you might have any tips to help me. I try to stay pretty addon-free as all I run now is DBM and shadowed unit frames. I would prefer to keep it that way but I would appreciate any addon suggestions as well. It is just killing me right now as I can either run the perfect rotation or I can dodge all incoming damage and completely flub my rotation. There doesn't seem to be a huge middle ground.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hey guys, 
      why is haste listed as the #1 off-stat after int for mythic+ healing. Is it because they expect us to fistweave in those dungeons?
      thanks
