Resto Shaman - Advice Needed

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, i've been watching the forums for some time now but i always tried to follow advices on other shamans. This time i am having doubts on my performance, i am perfectly comfortable with mid-hps since i value overall healing performance but also i want to make sure that i am not bottlenecking my raid's performance.Biggest reason is that i also lead the raids and i am feeling that effects my performance as a healer so i will post a log here about our first blackrock hc raid and i humbly ask for your suggestions, advices and anything more.I also don't mind people being harsh as long as i can get some concstructive feedback.Thanks in advance

i believe you can also check other logs from our guild raids but they are mostly bad attempts at brackenspore, for oregorger total tries, we did make some empty pulls to try out some mechanics for acid torrent so in my opinion that wipes might be wrong to analyze from.Anyway thanks again for your help.

Hi, jahrkul.

 

I went through your logs and this is what I saw:

 

Gruul:

1. Did you use PE talent in Tier 6? I don't see EB casts, no UF buffs and no buffs from Elementals. Whatever is your choice - you should utilize it.

2. Your HST uptime can be better. it's not bad - 8 from 11 possible, but just to pay attention.

3. You can definitely cast more CDs. I see only 1 HTT in this fight and no Ascendance at all. HTT, SLT, Ascendance - you could use twice every one of them. Your raid CDs are utility more then 'oh, shit' button.

4. Your HR overheal is pretty high while amount of casts is low. So I went to replay to see what was the tactic that your raid used: your group was stacked most of the time - so you could benefit from HR much more. Also it was more look like you casted HR when recalled to do that and some times your group was spread out right after the cast. I think that to work a bit on HR timings and casts on CD could help.

 

Twins:

1. Same - HST uptime should be higher. Do you use any aura to track its CD?

2. I see that you used PE talent. So my question is why you don't use its actual healing buff? Resto shaman's gain from this talent is in 10% healing boost. I don't see in logs not Empower from Fire Elem, no Reinforce from Earth. Actually no Earth Elem at all.

3. SLT totem is very good in this fight, especially on Enfeebling Roar. You used it only once. Could be at least twice.

 

I went through your wipes on Oregorger, but frankly, it's all the same.

 

To summarize:

First of all, I know that when you are a RL, it's very hard to track all the timings and to pay attention at all the CDs and stuff. I'm sure that you do your best :)

 

1. Track HST timings.

2. Try to use your raid CDs more. Do not hold them until last second. It's a nice troughput and mana managing utility.

3. Your tier 6 talents - try to check what's going on there. I know that normally healing and offencive / defencive buffs from Elementals are shown in the 'Buffs' section of logs but didn't see anything there.

4. Why don't you use UL at all? It's a nice 30% buff to every one from your direct heals (CH, HW, HS).

5. Side note - you can use Channeling mana potion (returns double amount of mana) instead of a standard one. Drop HTT and sit down to drink. Or use the Tranquility times for it. I saw that you are not struggling with mana, so it's a side advice.

Jahrkul - I also noticed you have a multistrike enchant on your cloak and your legendary ring doesnt have an enchant at all. I'd put Mastery on both. 

 

When I was looking through the BiS items on Icy-V  a few days ago I did notice that gear with multistrike does seem to be rated higher than other stats. Maybe someone else can comment on this. At the least put the good mastery enchant on ring.

The first line before the table in this link (BiS items on Icy-V) says "In each table, the items are ranked by item level and then alphabetically"

so I wouldn't say that any of the stats are rated higher - there are no ratings in the table.

First of all thank you for your time .

 

Pandacho thx especially taking time to review logs and for your adives ofc.Most of the time i save cds because we ve got 3 new healer and i dont yet trust them fully, they miss cds and some other things so i try to save them for oh shit moments unfortunately.

 

I track hst but thats definetly sth i should track more. Thanks

At twin i used my fire ele for dps tbh cuz we were struggling and got our kill a few secs after enrage so thought everybits helps but for earth shiiiit i didnt see that spell for a long time ^^ thanks again.

For mana potion i do use channeled but after candle my mana seems more than enough most of the time so i just use a mana pot instead of channeled one.

 

To me most important thing is UL, i can't seem to see it benefit.i mean yes it buffs the spells but spending a gcd for it, but i use chain heal a lot more than i used to now so i will definetly try to use it more to see if it helps,again thanks for your time.

 

Toulip , i forgot to mention that my cloak is for my 3rd os elemental and i just got the ring so usually i use mastery but plan to change it for haste tbh since i feel playing better with haste.again thanks for your time also ^^

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).

      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.

      I'm a ilevel 870-ish resto druid.
      In order to help my lazy DSPers in M+ man5, I more or less started to dps when there's no healing to do, also to keep me busy.
      The question is rather simple and is in 2 parts:
      1/ I'm using a stupid dot-as-musch-as-possible + solar wrath "rotation" . Is this correct ? the restoration guide is missing a dps section :o). I have the guardian affinity, I find the dps bonus in boomkin affinity way too low for the trouble. Switching forms costs one GCD which I find deadly in M++
      2/ I usually end up at most with something around 140k DPs on some packs, more likely to be around 90K dps average, maybe 60Kdps on boss fights... Anyone has some reasonable DPS target available or want to share their experience ? I'm no elite so I cannot pull off elite magic stuff but I'd still be interested in anyone feedback on that subject.
       
      Note: I'm no elite player in the sense that I probably will never be able to switch to cat form to do some melee dps, way too dangerous for  me :o)
      Note2: I cannot exactly remember but I think I can raise up to 250 Kdps but that means that no healing is required, which does not happen in M+
