I looked through the forums a little bit to see if anyone else had posted anything about this, but I'm curious. Would ability_shaman_condensationtotem.jpgCloudburst Totem and Healing Stream Totem simultaneously (Healing Tide Totem when able to line it up in an emergency, even) be beneficial?

It doesn't matter really, because CBT do not collect the healing from our totems but from healing spells only. So dropping any other totems together or not together with CBT does not affect its amount of healing in any way.

I can suggest that it's not bad to drop CBT and HST together because it's 1) easier to manage, 2) HST heals while CBT charges, 3) CBT releases its healing when HST goes on CD. 

But frankly, I don't see any significant difference in dropping CBT and HST simultaneously or apart from each other.

Personally I feel that if you take the CBT talent, you benefit most from having the Totemic Persistence talent too. While not necessary as the HST and CBT cooldowns can sync up nicely and the fact that totem healing doesn't effect CBT you get two benefits which are really nice.

 

1) You don't have to worry about another timing. Shamans have a lot to keep up already, on top of moving in fights and whatever else. Taking the stress out of having to manage the timings of your totems here is really nice and makes life a little easier.

 

2) You actually get a better healing duality. While your CBT is 'powering up' your HST is doing its job, then when it drops your CBT releases. Thus you have a better 'uptime' on them, rather than your CBT releasing as your HST comes on line and causing more potential for waste healing. Also you don't need to be as 'exact' and if you need to throw out some direct heals you have time to do it between casting both totems without screwing up your totem rotations and CD's

 

Finally the other two options at this rank of talent aren't really helpful with the CBT setup. Call of the Elements, seemed very redundant when I tried it. I had two totems which I could cast back to back for heals and could only use one at a time anyway, I've never thought 'oh crap, I really wish I had xx totem off cooldown'. I don't even think the totems have long cooldowns and never really saw this as a problem.

 

Totemic Projection from my point of view has one real use and thats for placing CC totems in a more viable location. Like the capacitor or earth grab totems, and lets face it you won't be using these in most boss fights and if you do, casting it at your feet is usually good enough. As of yet I haven't noticed any fight where this would be needed to relocate your healing totems.

I do use the dual totem with this setup, but the projection talent is also something I use often for fights like ogron, for when the raid stacks for enfeebling, used to even out damage, and butcher to throw my Spirit link totem on the tanks or in the center if everyone is stacked close enough. 

 

I use HST+HTT combination with Ascendance for extreme healing need moments.(Second to last trash pull before imperator)

 

HST>Healing Rain>HTT>Ascendance>riptide on two-four targets and finally chain heal spam and you have a burst HPS of 160k or so, Beserking(if you are a troll) and Bloodlust on top if you think you need any more. 

 

Normally it is just CBT+HST though, which imroves HPS by ~ 2-4k depending on their life percentage and your mastery amount.

I can't necessarily say I have any way to confirm this other than I wasn't casting heals and I'm almost positive I didn't have a HR down but I'm pretty sure my HST was racking up a charge on CBT. However, with your post in mind, OTHER THAN HST + HTT, is there a use for Totemic Persistence?

From the Cloudburst Totem tooltip: "collects power from all healing spells and their multistrikes" - no totems.

 

There is an easy way to confirm that CBT does not collect heals from totems. Go to your training dummies in Garrison, open combat log and cast CBT together with HST. I even did it right now thinking that maybe there were some resto changes that I'm not aware to.

 

I think that in the situation that you described, your CBT collected Riptide healing that was running on somebody even if you didn't cast other direct heals.

 

I personally use Totemic persistance for dropping CBT and HST together - have enough other stuff to pay attention except of one more totem timings.

Personally I still use persistence any time I'm using cloudburst; you can theoretically alternate it with HST without losing uptime, but that makes it difficult to use cloudburst effectively.

I liked to use Windwalk and SLT at the same time on Ko'ragh when the Unleash Magic: Frost came up. Mitigated some damage, kept people alive while running around, and made it all happen faster. There are small things like this which crop up all the time, it's just hard to notice them in the middle of a fight sometimes.

      Hello everyone,
      I want to ask for any tips on my logs, since I think I'm doing something wrong with my resto druid.
      I have good gear (currently 958 ilvl) but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS than me on the logs. I think I should be doing more than 900/1k hps, but rarely go above 700 in many fights.
      Here are a couple of logs of Antorus hc:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/cHZLXF1t8J7YMwBT
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/zGB27L8KYp4HXJZQ
      I searched the logs and I think one of my main problems for the lack of healing is the rejuvenations. Other druids do far more healing with same or less rejuvs, since my average casts is around 450k (and other druids go up to 750 or even 1000).
      I don't know if it's a problem with timing or overhealing (other healers snipping me), but I want to know other opinions.
      Thanks a lot for your help.

      Hello!
      I think I am doing something seriously wrong with my resto druid. I have pretty decent gear but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS then me on my recount meter. I've run simulations that said i should be getting 900hps but that's rather rare to see. During M+ runs when we're taking high damage i've seen 1-1.2mil hps - but in Antorus I feel like I'm stuck at 400-600hps
       
      Recently I've gone up 20 item levels and gotten 3 T21 pieces but haven't seen my hps improve much. I've switched from spring blossoms to double rejuv in hopes that i could hit higher hps but today in Heroic Antorus i was still the lowest healer (sorry no logs from that)
       
      Here are some logs from a guide I've been doing normal with:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=last&type=summary&source=15
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=4&type=summary&source=15
       
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

      Hi
      So, lately I have been looking around the web for someone to explain how I can insert an icon/bar that displays the "buff" Feral Spirit. I am mainly using the Tell Me When addon, but I had to go  through Weak Auras this time to get it right. I also want to mention that I would not have been able to get it right had I not imported the Weak Auras string from Wordup (author of the enhancement shaman guide). The reason for this being so complicated is because contrary to what you might think, Feral Spirit does not work as a buff. Therefore you will have to manually work around this problem to get it to work. I have added some pictures that will hopefully make the process easier.
      PS. I am in no way an expert on either Tell Me When or Weak Auras, so be gentle...
      1) Tell Me When:

      This is the general layout. If you dont want an icon, but a bar. You can go into the "group" tab (bottom right of tell me when) and select bar (on the very top)
       

      This is how the layout inside Tell Me When should look after completion. Feral Spirit is no longer a "buff", so you will have to make a Combat Event where you manually enter the amount of seconds the combat event (Feral Spirit) should be active, in this case 15 seconds
       

      This is important: Events to check --> Casts --> Spell Cast Success
      After all that you should be ready to go!
       
       
      2) Weak Auras:

       

      Feral Spirit is no longer a "buff", so you will have to make a Combat Log where you manually enter the amount of seconds the combat event (Feral Spirit) should be active, in this case 15 seconds
       

      Just scrolling down
       

      All the way at the bottom you have to enter the Spell Name and the amount of seconds that the Combat Event (Feral Spirit) should be active.
      Now you should be all ready to go!

      Hey guys, i'm coming to all my fellow shamans as a last resort, i don't seem to understand were I've gone wrong. I've been maining my Ele Shaman for several months now, and I've followed every instruction with guides. My stat priority is on point, my gear considerably good. (942) at the moment. I've tried every build with multiple bosses etc. My simulator show i should be nearing 2M dps on fights. Yet when i'm fighting i'm around 850k. I don't know if this is because of all the movements, but like i mentioned above I've tried Ice fury build for movement fights. When i'm practicing and testing rotations on dummy's my numbers seem, to be ok. Does anyone have tricks, tips, or pointers on what'll take to achieve the damage i need. I watch others with same builds, with less gear pulling great numbers. I know elemental isn't the best for Single Target, but my last fight on maiden i pulled 700k DPS :( !!!! As far as AOE, no problem there. Numbers are outstanding on trash etc. Thanks for taking the time to ready this.
