Hi, all!

First time posting but you all have been my ultimate resource for everything i needed to know about my class and so on ^^

I need a little (big) cricism/help about my buildup, gear and dps while preparing for mythic runs:

Here is the link to my armory:

http://eu.battle.net/wow/it/character/nemesis/Altheia/advanced

And you can find my logs on askmrrobot (i guess, because my guild doesn't upload logs on worldoflogs).

We're 7/7 nm and 6/7 hc and yesterday we got Imperator to 20% health before wiping.

When i'm dps i can get to 23-something dps, depending on movement, but i'm not dpsing all the run through, because i have to switch healing where more heals are required (yesterday i just switched for imperator, but it's not said, it depends).

I use CoP, Insanity (Dotweaving rotation) and i've followed Ask Mr Robot's suggested stats priority, gems and enchants. (Mastery,Mastery,Mastery)

So...very little bit of help will be very very very appreciated, i really want to make the best out of my SPriest and i wanna show that we're not only made to be healers 

Thanks a lot!

Yo. 

 

The armory looks good.  I can't read spanish, but I think that "maestra" means mastery, which is a decent stat for Highmaul.  Talents look good, and glyphs are good. 

 

If you can link us some logs I'd be happy to look over them for you!

Mastery drops away below most other secondary stats during movement fights. If your guild can breeze past low movement dps checks like Butcher but is struggling with high movement then you might be better off enchanting/gemming into a high movement stat. I'm in the same situation as you that I switch between shadow and holy at times so I've gone full multistrike as obviously it's the top holy stat, but also for shadow it's value in stationary fights is pretty good and it is far superior to mastery when moving.

Hi and thanks for replying! ^^

Maestria it's the italian name for Mastery and i'm sorry that my armory has been linked in italian, as i was pretty sure to have switched it to english (besides i play with english client, i hate italian translations lol)

You can find my logs on AskMrRobot, as my guild doesn't upload them on Worloflogs <3

It's the exact issue i'm having: i'm perfect away on Butcher, getting on to 24k but as the fights involve movements, things come bad, at least for me (yay, i'm the only Spriest in my gulld T_T) it'll be ok for me to re-enchant and re-gem everything, and it's gonna be pretty costless as i've got both profession for that, in which stats do you suggest me to re-enchant and re-gem?

Do you think that it's gonna be a good move looking forward to BRF? I mean, as far i can see it's gonna be another high movement fights raid, so...( u.u because yeah, we casters just needed some more movement. yeah.). Multistrike sounds appealing, though...

I go with multistrike while I'm in highmaul, though I know some use Haste. 

 

[...] You can find my logs on AskMrRobot [...]

Another thing that could help. If I know i'll have to move i use my instants for that. So if you know you'll have to move in the next time you could try to get 3 shadow orbs just 3 secons or so before, then cast Plague and channel mindflay if you time it well enough so you have to move just after you finished channeling mindflay you have buffed ms form your glyph as well as a mindblast off cd which you can cast while running.

Also nice other way around: you have to move with 2 shadow orbs > cast mindblast > cast plague and in most fights you can stand still after that 2 spells. Also you might want to not directly come back into camp, but just wait till the next mindblast is off cd so you can use its gcd to move.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 3/9M | 8/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Melee and Ranged DPS
      1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Resto Druid
      Medium: MW Monk, Holy Paladin
      Low: Holy Priest
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.
