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.

      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...

      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?
      Armory: Clementie
      HPS: Raid Night

      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!) 
      Armory: 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nordrassil/syanah
      annnd hoping it worrrrks
      Log I think if this works:
       https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/13553554/11#difficulty=4&class=Druid&spec=Restoration&metric=hps&bracket=21
       
      I think I got it to show my healing from on of our runs... I think. 
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xfKndz9P2hgHLbV3#fight=7&type=healing
      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.)
