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.

      I have a question for Arcane mages that I couldn't find existing guides mention on any website. In dungeons, mana is not typically an issue as a healer because you can just drink/eat in between packs, I mained a healer up until now so that mindset is just ingrained in me. As Arcane Mage, would the same principle apply? Is it optimal to just forgo the conserve part of the rotation and just burn as much as you sustainably can with every  pack, since you can just eat conjured food in between packs, or should you still do conserve/burn phases similar to what you'd do in a raid?
      Thanks.

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.

      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=4&type=summary&source=15
       
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
