Mana conservation as Resto.

Hey there.

 

A few days ago I posted my issue on Reddit, summed up - I'm having issues with mana and understanding what I'm doing wrong with my spell usage.

 

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/guilds/usercalendar/127018 (https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/NPGCnfZF67zyhB3H consist of my newest logs, please refer to the N BRF encounters)

Some of my known issues: There are some fights where I did not drop Mana Tide, this is/was a communication issue as I'm new to the guild I'm in. I'm trying to switch from mana potions to channeled ones. I do not use Weak Auras - something I'm interested in learning and getting used to.

 

I usually refer to Icy Veins for stat priority and the likes, but I'm not sure how reliable it's information is anymore. I do not know of any actual websites or other sources dedicated to Shaman healing.

 

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Hi, Legendairy and welcome to the forums!

 

First of all I looked into your Armory. For some reason your gear looks completely off. Is it your resto gear? Did you chose it or just use the only pieces that dropped for you?

 

The main secondaries for resto shaman are Mastery and Haste, Multistrike is somewhere behind but close. Crit is worse than all above and Versatility is not even taken on account. Your gear has lots of Crit and Versatility and only a bit of Mastery. If you so unlucky with loot, you should consider to use crafted gear with Mastery and Haste. 

 

You have two low level enchants - this is not good.

 

You should change one trinket to the crafted one - it provides loads of mana.

 

In tier 6 of your talents you should use EB, not PE for the same reason - Spirit buff.

Why do you use Totemic Persistence if you are playing with High Tide and not CBT? It's pretty useless in this composition.

 

I went through your logs - everything looks pretty solid. You already explained your HTT issues, so I wouldn't talk about it. Ascendance could be higher in some fights like Iron Maidens for example - only 2 casts in 14 min.

 

In my opinion, the cause of your mana problem is absence of the crafted trinket and EB talent and 'wrong' secondaries on gear.

Thanks for the response.

 

My Shaman was boosted not too long ago, and I've been struggling to get gear - much less proper gear. I've recently settled into a new guild, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to prioritize the correct stats at this point. There's been a lot of trialing, which results with me getting non-ideal gear, but it's still replacing something around 630 or 650ilvl.

 

I'll upgrade the enchants.

Someone suggested in my Reddit thread to use PE. I didn't like the idea of it myself, and had mainly played around with EoE and EB. I'll go back to trying EB. Same thing with Totemic Persistence, a suggested change that I usually don't go with.

 

I do have the crafted trinket, so I'll go back to using that and look to upgrading it as well.

 

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

 

And sorry about the Mana-Tide typo. Healing Tide. Haha.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      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.

      Hi, so I'd like to think that have got the fury rotation down, I've been using the Icy veins guide and some pointers from MMO-Champion. I don't think I have any big issues apart from the BC with CoF trinket, like if it's worth waiting for other cooldowns like OF to be up with BC, that's my main question. 
      So I have linked my logs for some PuG raiding the other week, so if someone is up for the task of analyzing them for me, that'd be great. Sorry if my sentences are wrong or weird, I'm really hungover...

      ( In Goroth Normal, you will see some downtime in the middle of the fight. I got disconnected that is the answer:/ )
