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.

      Hello!
      I was wondering how I could improve my damage to log higher as a feral! My armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/silvermoon/wólfíé
      and all of my logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/silvermoon/wólfíé
      I usually maintain bleeds 95+% of the time and don't waste combo points, I cast tigers fury and open with rake, ashmane's then shred and rip (I skip the extra shred if I get 2 combo points from rake)  then I just shred and fbite spam (and making sure to use trinkets on cd) What should I change to log 95+?
      I have legendary gloves and wrists for feral if I should change legendaries. 
      thanks in advance!

      Hi all,
      I'm currently playing a restro druid mainly for Raid - Mythic +
      Can somebody explain to me; especially for raids, why my HPS is very low compared to the other healers.
      I'm currently going with 936 gs - Shoulder Leg & Finger Leg (2nd talent in lvl75)
      Crit 19%
      Haste 21%
      Mastery 27%
      Versatility 2%
      All of my items habe atleast Mastery - even 8 Items Mastery & Haste.
      Nevertheless I'm unable to compete in HPS during raids HC + Mythic.
      Maybe it's something related to my rota - my current play style is:
      - Lifeboom on tank combined with cenarion ward & rejuvenation.
      - Dotting all others with rejuvenation
      - Effloresecence somewhere at meeles
      - wild growth as soon as multipe dmg mostly combined then with flourish
      - tranquility for heavy aoe
      - swiftmed for heavy heals
      etc...
       
      The problem is, even with this I cannot heal more than 400 - 600hps while the other healers are going with 1 mio hps.
      Maybe someone can explain my mistake.
       
      Thanks

      I figured I'd do a Part 2 of this since I've managed to move from having never tanked before to now I can't get enough of it. 
      I've noticed a few things and wanted as much input as I can get. What has struck me so far is the lack of healers running PUGs at the lvl 60-ish area. It takes forever to get a PUG group together and I haven't been able to keep a healer with us more than 1 run through. I've made some DPS friends through PUGs which is pretty cool, but what is up with the healers???
      The second thing is how my damage relates to a few other classes at about the same level. I'm currently lvl 67. I'm able to hold aggro nearly most of the time. I have some PUG members than have a pet with taunt or something but for the most part I am good to go. What I will see are Death Knights and some Warlock/Mages that seem to be doing crazy damage while only being a level or 2 higher than I am. Is that normal or am I undergeared? I haven't quite downloaded a damage meter just yet but from watching the health bar on the enemies I've noticed that those 2 can do some big damage by themselves! So is it a gear issue with me, is it just the nature of their class at that level or are they over-geared with extra goodies figuring their main has helped pay for their current state of their equipment? And with that, any recommendations or just hang in there until I get much higher level when better equipment appears? I have Heirloom for my chest, back, shoulders, weapon and trinkets. I haven't really found any quest gear or dungeon drops that is better that what I have now.
      I can't say Thank You enough to everybody that posted advice and encouragement in my first thread. It was very helpful and I've taken a lot of it to heart and put it to work. I have had so much fun doing this...as like most things in life you are leery of...once you try it you only regret NOT doing it sooner.

      As the title says, I've finally rolled a Tank and opted for a class I've always wanted to play; the Druid. Coming from a Shaman and Paladin that has done a lot of both Resto and DPS I felt it is time to try the other side!
      I have never tanked before...I was going to queue up for my first ever dungeon run but chickened out. I don't want to make a mess of it first time out before talking to some of you that have been here before. I'm still VERY low level...hit 18 last night while questing. Basic gear but have money from other toons if needed for gear.
      My questions are...when did some of you start your first tanking experience? Is gear at that low level of any importance or is everything pretty forgiving your first few times out so you can get an idea of rotation and how things work? Anybody have a few wipes on their first time out? Any advice for my first time out?
      Appreciate the hell out of the help! Thanks in advance and hopefully tonight I can partition off some time to get my first dungeon run in! I'm back after playing through until Cataclysm so it has been fun seeing all the new things added...a 6 year hiatus is quite a long time!
