Here is a Youtube playlist of all the videos I made for our Gold Challenge mode runs

Our comp was

Prot Warrior

Resto Druid

DK, Rogue, Mage - DPS

I'm sorry I won't have a detailed guide as Zagam has made in the warlock forums, but maybe these videos give you some insight on what to do or if you enjoy watching this point of view.

The only video I am missing is Gate of the Setting Sun because it was our first one and I was more worried about not letting down my teammates while doing this (because at the time I didn't think I good enough to do all of them gold) then worrying about getting the recording to work properly/ not make me lag.

Since then I have a new computer set up and can more easily record things, but I'm not sure if we will go back and re-do these times or not.

Regardless, enjoy.

Some minor things to note, For pretty much every dungeon I defaulted these glyph:

inv_glyph_majordruid.jpgGlyph of Blooming - I chose this glyph because Challenge modes reminded me of when I PvP'd pre-MoP. Having this glyph made sense to me since it allowed me to more easily control its bloom on the tank taking burst damage on top of the extra healing the glyph provides from a bloom. Plus =, its much more beneficial to let it bloom while you are using heavy regrowth/healing touch on the tank to help top him off during heavy spikes

inv_glyph_majordruid.jpgGlyph of Stampeding Roar - I chose this glyph because I didn't find rebirth as useful since they come back at 70% HP, which was sufficient enough for me to heal back when I'm expecting it. With this glyph it gave me more "breathing room" to cast stampedeing roar without having to worry about the position of my teammates.

inv_glyph_majordruid.jpgGlyph of Regrowth - This glyph is a no brainer, especially with the lower gear levels we had at the start of the expac and with glyph of blooming. 100% crit to Regrowth for constant tank spike damage? Can you say "Hooray LS procs?" =D

Talents:

T1: Feline swiftness more almost all. I used displacer beast on Gate of teh Setting sun, just because i didn't trust myself rushing down to the last boss and dieing because I'm too stupid to use the edges.

T2: Nature's Swfitness. Period. Always. No matter what you are doing as a Resto Druid, the others pale in comparison. Don't pick anything else.

T3: Usually Typhoon, never had a reason to even use most of these. Maybe I did, depends on the instance. In Siege I used Mass entanglement, but it was not really necessary because we didn't use the strategy anyway.

T4: Incarnation. I don't think the others give you as much burst healing as ToL. (FoN, maybe but meh, SotF, 50% haste to an already fast regrowth that could heal as much as HT when glyphed? meh. Gimme the insta RG and increased healing.)

T5: Ursol's vortex was a default, but if you're a better player then I am you can help your team out a bit with Mighty Bash for those much needed interrupts for tank damage. If you can do that, you're tank will love you forever. Remember to prioritize healing first. A dead group gets you no where.

T6: I first always learned and practiced an instance with Natures Vigil. It gave me more throughput when I felt I needed it. When I got use to the dungeon and got more synergy with the group (and when resetting to try for gold) I would switch to HotW. There were many places (SM, TotJS and SsB in particular) where I had to do quite a bit of DPS to help beat the timer. Mostly, for a big trash pack that the tank could stun lock for a while and I just hurricane my heart out for it.

Last thing to note, Stormstout Brewery had such a tight timer. I had to go boomkin for a trash pack at the very end to AoE (and also heal) then go back heals for the next trash pack, then go back boomkin for the boss. While DPSing the boss as boomkin, I would pop HotW and rejuv everyone while I DPS'd.

BTW: I'm a horrible DPS'r )=

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684

      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=last&type=summary&source=15
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=4&type=summary&source=15
       
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
