Hellfire Assault (top)

 

[Resto] [Heroic]

 

Well, my best advice for a resto shaman on this fight: respec to dps smile.png

It is a very easy fight in terms of healing, the raid rarely drops below 70%HP if doing the mechanics right. This encounter could be easily healed with 3 healers for 20 people on Heroic and a resto shaman is the worst performer here (would barely benefit from Mastery).

If you are healing this fight:

1. Go full Haste - 2-3 times of raid wide damage from Metamorphosis could be easily healed with your HTT and Ascendance CDs.

2. Use all your utility totems to help the raid - stuns, spell reflects, Spirit Link when having 2-4 Felcasters metamorphose together and cast uninterruptable Felfire Volleys.

3. Use your Fire Elemental and dps the boss on the start of the fight.

4. Dispel Conducted Shock Pulse asap: its damage is trivial but you can’t afford people being stunned for 6 sec (especially when this happens on top of the bombs)

 

This fight is really easy in terms of healing and if your raid is not using the tactic ‘gather everything and AoE it on top DPS’, resto shamans wouldn’t shine smile.png

 

[utility]

 

Archigos: Grounding totem can absorb the entire Volley of Metamorphosed Felcaster.

 

Iron Reaver (top)

 

[utility]

Iron Reaver targets healers specifically with his Barrage ability (at least on Normal and Heroic). Assign all the healers to stay on the one side of boss while all the dps on the other side. Still don't forget /range 8.

Handling Barrage in this way will save you a lot of healing.

 

[Resto] [Heroic]

 

Very intensive Ground Phase.

I highly recommend you to stay full time in melee range and to ask your ranged dps to come closer - it helps a lot to avoid Barrage damage and move from Blitz. Do not chase people hit and dragged by Blitz, there's a big chance that you'll end in the same position.

Use your raid CDs on Pounding. Do not wait for it to start - drop HTT or cast Ascendance 1-2 sec before. The damage is very intensive and entering Pounding with 50-60% HP could leave you behind on healing and cause unexpected deaths from multiplied abilities.

Do not bother with Healing Rain because normally you should stay 8 yards apart from each other in order to not get hit by somebody’s Unstable Orb.

Do not hesitate to burn your mana with Chain Heals here - you will have plenty of time to regen it in Air Phase.

When the Air Phase starts, wait for the first Artillery targets announcement and Immolation. After it you’ll have enough time to channel your mana pot.

Help to dps Firebombs - there’s not much to heal in this phase while killing the bombs in time is very important.

 

 

Kormrok (top)

 

[Resto] [Heroic]

 

You can dps in the first 20-30 sec of the fight - not much to heal during this period. HST, Riptides and Healing Rain on the melee camp would be enough.

Use your raid CDs during Pound cast. Our 3 min CDs align pretty nice with every Pound cast.

I would advise to use SLT on Grasping Hands. In addition, in this fight I’m using Int pot instead of mana pot for the healing boost during Grasping Hands/Pound combination.

 

[Enhancement]

 

demonardvark: When the hands are about to be cast run to the outside of your raid group and face in. You can spread your flame shock to most of the hands and fire nova for huge dps gains (and freeing your raid group sooner).

 

 

Hellfire High Council (top)

 

[Resto] [Heroic]

 

I would advise to use both dispel glyphs here (double dispel and healing on dispel)

Do not dispel Mark of the Necromancer before it comes to 3 stacks and even here wait 5-6 sec before dispelling. In this case the amount of players affected by the debuff would be minimal.

Use your CDs during Wailing Horror and Windwalk. SLT would be nice if you raid is using ‘stack loosely in the middle’ tactic.

 
 

Kilrogg Deadeye (top)

 

 

[Resto] [Heroic]

 

For this fight I’m using Ancestral Guidance when going to Death Realm. It aligns perfectly with the number of people and Realm CD.

In this case I can use HTT and Ascendance outside for Death Throes casts.

Two things to mention:

- Keep an eye on your buff stacks in Death Realm. In the second you get 20 stacks - jump into the fire, die and get out. You can’t get more than 20 stacks of buff so there’s no reason to stay there.

- When you get out from Death Realm, run immediately to melee camp and stay there for all the Death Throes casts while you have the buff: you will not be hit by missiles and your Defying Death buff absorbs 1m of damage done.

 

[ele/enh]

 

Derienn: Frozen Power talent and the Glyph of Frost Shock were really useful for holding Salivating Bloodthirsters in place on Kilrogg.

 

Gorefiend (top)

 

[Resto] [Heroic]

 

Well, you should use all the CDs during Feast of Souls. No need to use them all together, start from HTT - it would heal people while they are gathering up. Use both SLT during other healers CDs - it will help to redistribute the healing.

If you need to channel a pot, do it right after the end of Feast of Souls but I would advise for a regular mana potion for this fight - too much stuff could disturb your channeling.

Inside the stomach:

You definitely should heal the Tortured Essences on Heroic. And it’s not because of their AoE but because of the raid wide Slow debuff. Too much health they’ll have > more time to kill them > people are slowed and can’t run out with Touch of Doom or kite the Constructs.

I was using VuhDo target frame to heal them but it started to bug and disappear in the start of the fight so I wrote a macro that targets an add, put a raid mark on them, cast Riptide and two Healing Waves. It’s enough to heal the add to full or at least to 90% HP.

Normally you should be able to heal 3 Essences and HoT the 4th.

Macro:

/target Tortured Essence

/script if GetRaidTargetIndex("target")==nil then SetRaidTargetIcon("target",1) end

/castsequence reset=1.8 Riptide, Healing Wave, Healing Wave

 

 

Shadow-Lord Iskar (top)

 

[utility]

Your raid could benefit from a shaman grabbing the Eye on the start of the fight. Wolf + Unleashed speed buff could speed up the things and prevent the damage from Uncontrolled Radiance. It's not a 'must' - any class can grab the Eye with the speed buff but I would say that healers are optimal for this task - we have nothing to do on the start of the fight.

 

[Resto]

The only times to use our raid CDs are the Focused Blast casts. Drop SLT on the last seconds (it's a 12 sec cast so do not use SLT too early) and use HTT for the first Blast and Asc for the second.

Theoretically you can use a CD if things went ugly with Fel Chakram or Fel Bomb going off in raid but they are mistakes in handling the fight, so you shouldn't plan raid CDs for this kind of damage.

 

I would advise for healers to use Iskar Assist addon on this fight if handling Phantasmal Winds and Fel Bomb dispels only with Action Button is problematic for you.

Tick off everything in Options except of Phantasmal Winds and Fel Bomb debuffs.

 

Throw the Eye to another healer on 6 stacks of Radiance of Anzu debuff on Heroic (irrelevant on Normal).

 

No need to target heal people with Phantasmal Wounds debuff on Normal and Heroic - the damage is pretty trivial and is healed up mostly by HoTs and AoE healing.

 

Fel Lord Zakuun (top)

 

[Resto][Heroic]

The fight is very short (3-4 min) so you will have only one possibility to use your raid CDs.

Theoretically it's better to use a Holy Pala with AW or / and a Resto Druid with ToL or HotW during P2 (Disarmed) and to keep HTT and Asc for the last phase (P3: Enrage).

 

You have to direct heal Befouled targets - every stack of it absorbs about 100K healing on Heroic (about 300K total), so a couple of Riptided crit Healing Surges would be enough. Do not hesitate to use Healing Surge - it does some awesome crits for 100-125K HP and the fight is so short to go OOM.

 

 

Socrethar the Eternal (top)

 

[utility]

 

You can help with Exert Dominance, Shadow Word: Agony, Shadow Bolt Volley interrupts if your raid doesn't have an assigned rotation.

 

Bethie: Grounding totem works against Shadow Bolt Volley on Socrethar.

 

[Resto][Heroic]

 

Nothing specific we can do during P1 - it's all about damage mitigation on tanks - not a Resto Shamans call.

 

During P2 we should use all our CDs (SLT, HTT, Asc) for Apocalypse casts. I found out that the first Apocalypse damage is pretty trivial and could be healed with SLT and normal healing only. If it's the same for you, keep HTT for the later ones.

 

Dispels: use a Glyph of Cleansing Waters for this fight. Do not dispel Shadow Word: Agony immediately if its target doesn't have the Gift of the Man'ari debuff. Ask dps and interrupt by yourself Shadow Word: Agony casts if too many of them are going off because in this case you will just burn all your mana for dispels and go OOM.

 

Xhul'horac (top)

 

[utility]

During P2 and P3, Grounding Totem is perfect to soak Void Surge cast with subsequent Creeping Void patch.

A WeakAura to track the Void Surge cast:

[Resto][Heroic]

Use your raid CDs in the last phase (P4: Tearing Apart). The damage here is very high and getting higher during the phase because of Overwhelming Chaos debuff. The raid will take healvy damage from its AoE part every 10 sec., so it would be the best time for the raid CDs.

Can you please add a spec tag  ([enh] / [ele] / [resto] ) to the post? I assume that you are talking about Enh but still ^^

Resto Shaman - Tyrant Velhari:

 

want to cheese tyrant velhari like all the top rankings do? 

Go full healing tide totem spec. Take primal elementalist, Elemental mastery, Strong on use trinket.

Pop everything including ascendance at ~ 43% (or a few % earlier if that will give you bloodlust/trinket/ring buff) Congratz you do 100k+ hps that fight wink.png

 

Maybe ancestral guidance and cloudburst totem will increase the healing done even more, conductivity probably to good though for this fight.

 

DO NOT TRY THIS DURING PROGRESS biggrin.png

I really would like to ask you, guys, to post helpful comments in terms of right healing and utility usage. 

You can definitely try whatever you want with your raid group if they are fine with it, but

we are not here to teach people how to cheat healing meters but to help to make right choices in healing approach.

Pumping meters at any costs is not helpful to your raid and to your fellow healers by any means but only satisfies personal ego.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry @pandacho, you're right I shouldn't have posted that wink.png

Let me give some actual usefull tips:

 

Resto Shaman:

 

The Resto Shaman talents/glyphs in general are very standard.

level 15: Astral Shift

level 30: Earthgrab totem is the least useless talent here for HFC

level 45: Totemic projection

level 60: Echo of Elements (unless you wont use your 2 spirit link totems, go AS)

level 75: Rushing Streams

level 90: Elemental Blast

level 100: High Tide

 

Glyphs:

Glyph of healing stream

Glyph of healing wave
Glyph of Spiritwalker's Focus

 

Specific fights where it might be good to change talents/glyphs and uncommon abilities:

 

Iron Reaver:

Glyph "Chaining" at this fight everyone is spread and glyph of chaining will improve the effectivity of your chain healing a lot. 

 

Drop Echo of Elements, Spirit link totem isn't very usefull this fight. Take Elemental mastery if you think your healing tide needs a little bit more output during poundings, or take Ancestral Swiftness if you prefer the overal output more.

Take Call of Elements just to have a few extra healing stream totems during this fight.

 

Hellfire High Council:

Conductivity is a good option if your raid stacks up and barely moves during that fight. Rushing streams will still be close.
Do you have mana problems, take conductivity. You got mana to spare? take rushing streams and cast healing rain a bit more often.

 

Killrog Deadeye:

If your guild is doing 2 groups into the "Vision of Death" make sure to convince your raidleader that you, the Resto Shaman, should be in 1 of those groups. They are arguably the best healer to get that buff and are great at keeping the people alive in there.

 

Ancestral Guidance: If you are struggling to keep the 3 man group alive during visions of death for the full duration then this is the perfect talent for you. It heals 3 people and the cooldown lines up perfectly with the Vision of Death rotation. If you ever wanted to use this talent, this is the fight.

 

Gorefiend:

Primal Elementalist: This fight is mostly about the "Feast of Souls" phases. You will get 2 Feast phases of 1 minute each, perfect for this talent!

 

Unleashed Fury: Might be an option if you are struggling with healing the adds inside his belly, Tried it but for me it felt like overkill 1 shot healing those adds. Maybe more important at mythic, well see.

 

Tyrant Velhari:

Conductivity: Very usefull as the melee is always stacked up and later on the people that get the "Font of Corruption" debuff as well. In p2 people drop really low and you want to keep everyone full HP wich IMO healing rain does a really good job at.

 

Cloudburst Totem: Honestly i haven't tried this yet, hell i havn't even tried this talent in ages. But it sounds incredibly good in p2 to me. Pop a cloudburst totem 10-15 seconds before "Edict of Condemnation" is going to hit. The healing saved in the cloudburst totem will stack up incredibly fast because of the healing with your mastery. Release it, or click the totem away when the damage from edict comes in. This might very well save you a big healing cooldown like Spirit link or Barrier.

This is just a theory though.

 

Xhul'horac + Archimonde

Capacitor Totem: Pop a cap totem 2 seconds before the imps are about to spawn, place it in the middle of the imps with Totemic projection for some nice CC on the adds. For both bosses you can do it once every 2 imp spawns.

 

 

PS: won't it be a little bit messy having 3 specs in 1 post? huh.png

Enhancement: On kromrok when the hands are about to be cast run to the outside of your raid group and face in. You can spread your flame shock to most of the hands and fire nova for huge dps gains (and freeing your raid group sooner).

Grounding totems works against Shadow Bolt Volley on Socrethar encounter and against imps on Mannoroth.

I also use this on HF Assault when we get a meta or God forbid a double meta since it can absorb the entire volley.

Off the top of my head:

 

[ele]  Iskar

 

Glyph of Chain lightning works really well with the add pack during his flight phase. All of the lightning shield charges will give you a strong combo of AoE and single target damage.

 

 

[ele] Kilrogg

 

Taking the Glyph of Frost Shock and the Frozen power talent can help you lock down the Bloodthirsters (especially if both appear at the same time).

 

[ele] Gorefiend

 

Glyph of Frost Shock and or Frozen power can help you control the skeleton spirits in his stomach. Outside the stomach it can still slow them. Thunderstorm can also knock them back while inside.

 

You can take Elemental Mastery and the Elemental totem talents to help maximize your burst during the "Feast of Souls" phase.

 

Hope this helps!

you should run windwalk totem on gorefiend as it is really good for dealing with the tortured essences that get through and is op for mythic as not only does it remove the slow debuff but for some reason it also negates the damage of the shadow bolts.

 

Id also change your macro on gorefiend to be healing surge over healing wave as you shouldnt take any damage inside and you mastery will give you stronger heals with surge, this is what makes shamans the strongest class in this phased zone than any other healer.

 

On Fel lord, I run double links for the disarmed phase (mythic) which i use for the seeds. seed (1) link, followed almost directly by HTT which should line up almost perfectly with the second seed. link no.2 is for seed (3) with ascendance.

 

On Archi (Heroic) I like to run double link again as it can be handy to make up for double shadowfel bursts mistakes if people dont spread and it can also be used for shackled torment and it allows for all 3 shackles to break simultaneously, maximising all hps and dps alike

About Tyrant (as it's empty up there)

 

At P1 I usually drop an HTT for the first Tempest, as it helps getting everyone topped and there's time enough for HTT cooldown until the last phase when I really need it.

 

Conductivity helps a lot since everyone is stacked almost all fight, and I try to sustain it with Healing Wave to save some mana.

 

P2 is, for me, stacked with everyone else, using SLT to help on the Big Hammer thing and unexpected damages, and if it's too ugly, I pop an ascendance...what's really strong since it's everyone stacked on rain.

 

IMO, Shamans have to help interrupting Add casts so life's won't be locked down too low.

 

Also, pay close attention to health bars when they are locked low, because you won't want to spend unnecessary chain heals here. I usually try only to Riptide anyone who takes damage and maybe keep a Riptide on tanks too, since they're always taking the damage. 

 

Last phase:

Glyph of Spiritwalker's Grace will help a lot on last phase.

That's where I use my HTT.

Last phase for me is putting the rain ahead of the tanks and DPS's (since they're walking through the room, usually following a pre-defined path)

 

Spiritwalkers is specially usefull if I still have ascendance, since I will have to be running a lot and repositioning the rain and also spamming chain heals, after some seconds inside this phase, when I feel the healths are going down, is where I drop HTT to help support everyones life. SLT is hard to position here, but I try to if I have some on cooldown using the totem placement talent.

 

As I see it, Tyr needs heavy healing at the end, the rest is pretty easy with a good comp.

 

Good luck! :)

      Hi everyone

      I won't pretend to be a veteran or a very good player because I am not either one of them (I don't raid or push Mythic+). But I've played rpg/arpg for around 15 years now on PC and have 7 lvl 110s. So I am somewhat not idiot when it comes to playing a class. However with an Enh Shaman, I am feeling like one. This class feels paper thin to play and damage seems exactly meh. Let me explain a bit more. 

      I have a Frost DK, Sin Rogue, Havoc DH and a Ret Pally as melee. I felt confident while playing them that I can take on enemies and not die even if I pulled more than one. But when playing this Enh Shaman, I've died multiple times trying to do so. Not only that, it feels that a !@#$ty lvl 106 mob (same level as me) does more dmg per hit than I do. And mind you, this is not during dungeons but normal leveling. I've never felt this weak while playing any of my melee characters. I tried doing a Legion invasion to quickly level up and died basically half a dozen time doing every single invasion quest. I can't being to explain how frustrating that is.

      Not only this, but damage wise every skill seems just not upto the mark when compared to other classes. My resource generator (Rockbiter) is a hand cramp inducing skill and I have to spam it a lot to generate Maelstrom which my other spenders just chew through. I get Stormbringer proc but its very few and far between and doesn't seem very effective even when it does. Isn't it supposed to be a nuke skill ?

      I suppose this could be because of low points in my artifact and low level gear but I had the same situation on my other characters and it never felt bad like this is. I am losing my interest to play this class at all and no matter what rotation or build I try out, it is always the same result. I pull one enemy and then after killing it I spend my entire resource just to heal up.

      Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and if it gets better at higher levels or if next patch improves our situation.

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/tichondrius/nimbonya
       
      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike

      If you are swedish, looking to raid 2-3 days a week, looking for a very social, fun but still competitive mythic guild, then look no further, we are the guild for you. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
      About us:
      Geek Squad is a swedish guild that has been around for many years. We are currently focusing on mythic raiding and our goal is to always clear the current content before the release of the next tier. The guild is composed mainly of former hardcore raiders who can't play as much as in our younger days but who still want to play, have fun and have a good progression. Since we raid only 2 days a week we expect our raiders to have a high attendance and to be well prepared for current content. 
      Raid schedule:
      Wednesday Optional Hc clear: 19-When we are done
      Thursday: 19–22
      Sunday: 18-22
      We never extend beyond these raiding hours.
      What do we expect from you:
      - Swedish speaker; as the guild solely consists of swedish players we expect you to have a good understanding of the swedish language and be able to communicate on both voicecom and chat.
      - Attendance; as we only raid 2 days a week and keep a tight roster of raiders (not more then few on the bench at time) so being there and available even if not selected for certain boss is very important
      - Maturity; as the average age in Geek Squad is a bit above most guilds we would prefer if you are as well. We are a bunch of guys with families, jobs and real lives outside of the game and we understand all that comes with it. However if you are to commit to raiding with us we want you to be in it for the long haul. We focus on having fun with the game while also maintaining a competitive attitude, we hope you want to be a part of and contribute to that.
      - Social skills; be communicative, enjoy the game, let us know in advance if something is going to interfere with your raiding schedule so that we can plan accordingly. In our own modest opinions we have one of the best guild environments you can be a part of and we want to bring in more people who can positively contribute to that.
      - Know your class inside out and how to perform it to its maximum. Be able to take constructive criticism
      What can we offer you:
      - Stable guild; the guild has been around for a long time and we have no plans to slow down now.
      -We always try to bring the players that will give us the most chance of killing a boss on progression fights, this means you will have the same chance as everyone else of competing for a spot.
      - Experienced and motivated players; most of our raiders have played the game for a long time (vanilla/tbc) and are still highly motivated to get the most of the raiding time that we have together. If you are to join us we expect you to do everything you can to further those goals.
      - Occasional alt raids, not mandatory. Totally optional for people who want a little bit more raiding on side with their alts
      PROGRESS:
      Emerald Nightmare: 7/7
      Trial of Valor: 2/3
      Nighthold: 8/10 (10/10 HC farming on off days)
      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking to extend our roster with 2-3 players and are looking for the following classes:
      Rogue
      Elemental Shaman
      Warlock
      Frost DK
      Balance Druid
      We don't have an application form as we feel that is an old and inefficient way of doing recruitment. Instead we focus on interviews as well as going through a bit of logs. We don't expect you to consistently parse in the 90% but at least showing that you know your class well.
      As for which classes we are looking for we are quite flexible at the moment as we currently have a good class balance already so we are mainly interested in you as a player rather than your class/specc. With that said we do specifically want a resto shaman and a rogue a bit more than anything else.
      If you are interested feel free to contact us.
      How to apply:
      To apply contact Ithok#2898, Krebb#2944, kebban#21852 or whisper an officer ingame.
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon!

      Currently seeking
      We are currently looking to bolster our range damage dealer ranks, but we are always on the lookout for skilled players of all classes/specs 
      The classes we are currently recruiting:
         Hunter    Mage    Shadow priest    Elemental shaman    Warlock    Balance druid  
      Who are we?
      <Andromeda>  is a 2 nights heroic raiding guild located on Stormrage eu. While the atmosphere in the guild is friendly and social, we do strive and focus on progression during our raid nights. We also run mythic+ during our free evenings. While we have a stable roaster we are looking to expand our raiding team and if we fill our ranks we will not shy away from going into mythic raiding.
      <Andromeda>  was  re-formed for the start of WoD and cleared each raid instance on heroic, and are looking to do the same in Legion. We are composed of a tight-knit group of old friends, most of whom have played together since vanilla or early expansions. A lot of us are former "hardcore" raiders, but are now pursuing a more relaxed and fun approach to raiding and WoW. If you're a former member from the Vanilla/TBC days, then you will probably recognise a few old faces and names! We like to organise other activities within the guild aside from raiding and mythic+, like quiz games on our mumble server where you can win different awards and the occasional IRL meetup. 
      Many of our members have variable work commitments (travel abroad for work, rotas (e.g. doctors/EMTs etc)) and we appreciate this is reflective of the wider community. As such, we do have an understanding if you sometimes can't show up for raid due to work or important exam in your study, but we do expect you to have a high attendance.
      What we offer
      A guild with a friendly and social atmosphere both inside and outside raids while we still keep a sense of professionalism during progression on new bosses. Consistent raid progression Mythic+ runs during our free nights where you are more than welcome to join in on runs for the weekly bounty chest or want to push for higher and higher keystones to see how far we can push it each week. A guild bank that will have you covered if you don't always have time to farm before raids. Different guild events such a wow quizzes where you can win prices from our guildbank Our progress:
      7/7H Emerald Nightmare
      3/3H Trial of Valor
      10/10H Nighthold
      What would be expected of you?
      What we do ask is that our members are familiar with tactics on new bosses, adapt to changes and handle constructive feedback. Have fully gemmed/enchanted their gear, bring flasks and food. However, further to the above, we keep the guildbank stocked with free-of-charge "emergency" consumables to help those with busy schedules that sometimes don't have the time to farm before a raid. 
      Raid times
      Tuesdays 21:00-23:00
      Sundays 20:00-23:00
      (If we are close to a kill and people can stay, we will extend the raid for 30 min)
