Best Talents / Style

Searched the forums and couldn't find the answer I was looking for. I typically raid with a disc priest, holy pally and either a monk or shammy. I can top the meters or come a very respectable second if the disc priest is not there. I understand how powerful the absorbs are with the priest but I feel I shouldn't drop from 1st to 4th or even 5th behind the DK tank. Gruul, Oregorger and Flame are the ones I see the biggest swings in.

 

What I am looking for is play-style tips not a picking apart of my logs or gear.

 

As an example I am currently run germination, incarnation and nature's vigil. What combination is better to reduce over healing and not battle the absorbs

 

Thanks for the help in advance.

Don't put too much stock in the meters; a Disc is always going to hog them during periods of lower damage simply due to the fact that their absorbs prevent health bars from going down. Look at the logs and find periods during the raid when everyone is at their maximum - you should be poring over those moments to determine if your output and efficiency is where it should be, because those are the times where a great healer will shine by being prepared and using the right abilities at the right time, and a poor one will let down the raid.

 

From the perspective of maximum performance where it counts, the talents you have chosen are good ones. I would not advise you to change it up just to snipe more healing from the rest of the raid. You don't mention which talent you use from T2; Ysera's Gift is my strong preference, as it ensures that at least some healing is always given to you, even if you are desperately trying to keep someone else alive.

Hi Havoclord

 

The scenario you describe appears to be a scenario where you shouldn't be healing at all! If you're below the tank in terms of HPS and you feel there is nothing to heal because everything is being absorbed, maybe consider you're using a healer too much? The raid encounters are designed in such way that people should drop critically low from time to time. Sadly many people interpret this as a sign of weak healers and they increase the number of healers in the group until the raid frames are kept stable around 90%+. If that is the case, it is impossible to compete as a resto druid, as you don't have many tools to snipe heals.

 

I'll answer your questions for two different scenarios:

 

If the purpose is to fight for a good spot on the meters by sniping heals I would recommend the following talents:

Go Soul of the Forest, Dream of Cenarius and Rampant Growth.

During low periods of damage you can spam Wrath and very efficiently snipe any minor heals required. When high amounts of damage occur, you can set up a Soul of the Forest empowered Wild Growth. Thanks to Rampant Growth you can also snipe heals with Swiftmend. If you unglyph your Regrowth you can do significant single target healing by alternating Regrowth and Swiftmend.

 

The above described advice only works if you're fighting for the numbers on the meters, in a situation where you actually aren't needed (where it wouldn't mean a wipe if you suddenly dc'ed). If the raid actually relied on you to keep them alive, you should go with the talents you mentioned yourself.
