Hello amazing forum. Long time fan here. I've been raiding/healing on resto for almost two years now and I feel as though I am missing something. I mean, (I think) I know what to do in most situations, but my throughput just isn't as good as the other resto druid in my raiding group, and sometimes, I'm just straight up embarrassed (i'm glad when he goes boomy, but my throughput still stinks!). So critique and analyze away, I really need it.

Use wild growth more, keep a higher uptime on lifebloom, harmony is at about 70% uptime, remember to keep it up, it's bonus healing. I would suggest using Dream of Cen, and Soul of the Forest for the majority of the encounters, just wrath during low damage periods, and use swiftmend+wild growth and get high on the meters. I realise keeping a high uptime on lifebloom isn't always priority, as you can see from these logs, I was slacking on it just because the tanks weren't really taking much damage, but I was also missing out on free regrowths.

Looking at your logs you are overhealing the content, dont need 4 healers for 14 man.


Other than that you need to work on a few things.


Your uptime on lifebloom is low (62%), lifebloom procs clearcasting which gives you free regrowths, its important you try to keep lifebloom uptime close to 100%. Also try to keep wild mushroom up for close to 100% aswell since its very mana efficient.


Your Harmony uptime is low aswell (70%) i would say this is even more important than lifebloom uptime because having harmony up equals alot of extra output as a resto druid.


Also it seems like theres quite few casts in general, at somepoints in the fight you were just standing there doing nothing, you should always cast something during the fight, if you dont need to heal at one specific moment you should cast wrath and moonfires.


An easy way to keep track of the uptime on various spells is the use of weakauras, makes the job more simple.

Thank you both for your feedback. That fight was Hans & Frans, and I've been working on healing better on the move.


Here are a few more logs from the past couple of days. Please, critique away! Please note some of these are from pugs. I'm Zingaraa

      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:
      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.

      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:
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

      I recently obtained several high item level trinkets for resto, but since healing isn't supported on simcraft I have no way of telling what to use when.
      I have a 930 Amalgam's Seventh Spine, a 910 The Deceiver's Grand Design, a 905 Sea Star of the Depthmother, and a 910 Bloom of New Growth
      I'm currently using the grand design and sea star, but am wondering if any of the others are better than the star.
      I also have a question about ele trinkets, specifically at what number of targets I should swap my 930 Tarnished Sentinel Medallion for my 920 Spectral Thurible? My second ele trinket is a 895 Whispers in the Dark, which as far as I can tell should always be used.

      Hello All,
      I need some help!  My HPS seems a bit low, and I need some advice on how to up my healing.  My role in raids is to focus on the tank/off tank  and raid heal as I can.  I've taken up this role for two reasons: I am the most consistent healer, being that I am almost always there, and two, because my BF is the main tank, and since we live together, it's easier for us to coordinate cool downs between us.
      My ilvl is currently 890, I have two legendaries, and my artifact is maxed.  I do have two other legendaries in my bags, but they are the neck putting me in my own little bubble, and the pvp ring.  Below are my current stats.
      I realize I use Regrowth more than I should, but it generally is my "OH SHIT" button.
      What can I change to up my healing and help the raid?

      Hello! I am Syanah. :) 
      Anyway onto the details. I'm at 904 equipped currently. My weapon is at 919 with two of the ones that makes Living Seed do more healing, and the one that increases mana regeneration. As of writing this I have 48 traits. My talents are Cenarion Ward, Displacer, Guardian Affinity, Typhoon, Cultivation, Germination, and Flourish. My haste is at 26%, my crit is at 17%, mastery at 11%, and (somehow even though I just kinda ignore it) versatility at 12%. 
      Ok. My rotation for large amounts of burst is normally wild growth, swiftmend the lowest, cenarion ward on the next lowest, then throwing rejuvs as much as i can before florishing.
      My tank rotation is just keep as many hots on them as i can, use Ironbark when it's off and when they need it a lot, and keep Cenarion on the tank taking the most damage.
      For large damage on people i immediately hit Ironbark, regrowth to stabilise if it's very bad, then other hots to get a better Swiftmend. 
      For my mana issues I first like to use what I call "manaburst". It's pretty much just a macro binding Innervate and Essence of G'hanir to work together. I also have Leytorrent potions. 
      For legendaries I currently use Essence of Infusion and Velen's Future Sight. I have The Dark Titans Advice, Pyrdaz, and X'oni's Caress. Trinkets I have Ephemeral Paradox, Etraeus' Celestial Map, and the Flask of Solemn night. I use Solemn night and Velen's.  I have my four piece in the form of cape, head, pants, and shoulders. 
      Soooo.. pretty much it'd seem like I'd be doing ok but honestly I feel like I don't do enough. (These aren't 100% accurate numbers, so be warned.) I usually seem to be around 400-600k, but it drops to mostly 200-400k at the end of fights. I raid in a heroic guild, so it's a little less important that I be the very elite of the elite, but still. There's 3 healers in all. Myself, another Resto, and a Holy priest. We have another healer, a resto shaman, who doesn't heal all that much anymore but still. Pretty much I'm always behind them the holy and the other resto. (They are really good though, so /shrug)
      Anyway I'm going to post my armory, and warcraftlogs. (I have no idea how to use logs so... here goes!) 
      annnd hoping it worrrrks
      Log I think if this works:
      I think I got it to show my healing from on of our runs... I think. 
      This is the most recent I can find. 
      So basically I just wanna know from some other restos how it looks, how to improve, and what I should look to do. Been worried that my healing isn't up to par with what a 904 should be so that's what mostly made me post this and because I wanna be the best i can be for my guild and our progression for Tomb. :)
      (Also I apologize if I this wrong. I have no idea what I'm doing.)
