[Resto] Tackeling Meters

6 posts in this topic

Hello Folks,

 

I'm looking for some advice.

 

Currently I'm that lovely druid that tanks, heals and boomkins as and when everything is needed. Currently progressing on Xhul heroic and meters are just simply terrible! I'm getting beaten by both tanks and the 2 other healers (Disco and Holy Paladin). 

 

Now let me also say that I really don't care about meters in healing. I think it is a completely wasted tool when it comes into the flight of who the better healer is. However my GL is now commenting that it needs to be upped.

 

On this fight I hardly find something to heal until P3. With the Holy Paladin doing the tank healing and the disco helping I find myself wrathing until fire comes in, a quick rejuvenation on them (maybe a swiftmend if someone isn't good). Maybe a Geneisis if it's needed but then it's back to wrath. I feel like there is so much downtime I just can't seem to increase anything.

 

Would anyone be able to look into it and see what's what?

Thanks you.

There really isn't much to do for Restodruids during P1 and 2. Just try and Wild Growth when people are hit by Fel Surge and keep your Lifebloom on the off tank (the one tanking the big add). Other than that there really isn't much to do if everyone else avoids dmg well enough. You might wanna suggest to be the one in charge of keeping the fire in check during P2 to your GL, or alternatively you can kite the Voidwalker adds in P2/3 away from the range-dps so they don't have to mind them as much. Other than that, there's not much you can do, especially with a disc in you team dry.png

 

Once P3 hits, you should in theory be at full mana, so just cast Wild Growth on CD and keep Rejuve up on everyone. Announce your Tranq when necessary, and keep Incarnation ready for P4, then, if you still have enough mana, spam Regrowth if necessary, otherwise just Rejuve+Wild Growth as much as possible. Pre-hotting can be vital, you never know when a Fel Annihilation might hit.

 

Also, make sure to have more than 95% uptime on your lifebloom. It costs next to nothing, does a decent amount of healing (even if it's overheal most of the time), and Omen of Clarity is a thing. It doesn't have to be on a tank, you can just constantly swap it (you wanna do that anyway once you have T18-4p bonus).

 

 

Bottomline, unless you get a really good tranq off, your HpS will not look very well, that's just the nature of this fight for resto. 80% of your healing will happen in P3/4, so naturally your meters will tell you that you suck rolleyes.gif

You should be doing it 2 heals maybe. Currently you're in a state where for 4 mins average damage taken per second (group) is 160k. Tanks are doing 60k hps, that's leaving 100k dtps. It's just enough for 2 healers to take. And yeah, Xhul is the kind of fight where you have nothing to heal half of the fight, and where everyone is dying for the rest of the fight. If your raid team can cover second part - I mean not fuck up with mechanics, with 13 ppl you'll be just fine with 2 heals here. Expecially when your tanks are DK and Pally.

 

HPS is a good meter, it just needs to be taken in a different perspective than dps. You can't heal if ppl aren't taking damage. And if heals have low hps - it probably means you've got too many healers.

You bring a resto druid on Xhul just for the last phase. Until then, DPS. I see you're good at using Wrath. Keep 100% uptime on Moonfire as well on everything but Imps. And be useful to your raid by taking tasks such as clearing fire, kiting adds and spawning Black Holes at convenient spots, so that the other players can deal more damage. Meters are a terrible tool indeed.

 

Dream of Cenarius is bad. Use Heart of the Wild if you need even better power healing in the end, otherwise use Nature's Vigil.

      Just trying to see why im doing slow low of heals. I come last in the raid, shaman and priest coming ahead of me and most fights im barely able to push and hold 300K in heals. on the rare chance i push higher but only on the short fights. Any help would be nice so i dont feel like im letting down my raid. 
      Here is my amory link http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/bloodhoof/Kibea/simple
      A few logs between, EN and Nighthold

      raid: Wild+ essence or flourish
      high dmg: inn+tree+trang+Wild+ essence or flourish
      with efflorescence being put down when ever its up.

      Hey guys, need a hand here please. I have healed off and on for years with one or the other of several Resto Druids I have. I also frequently (prior to Legion) heal with a Disc Priest (until Legion, now she is parked), a Mistweaver Monk (not 110 yet) and a couple of Resto Shamans (also not 110 yet).
      I am a really good but not exceptional healer, though I am the strongest healer in the guild atm on most fights, not all. I am disabled, so I can't spend as much time online as I would like, so any help would be much appreciated.
      My question is this: I use askmrrobot.com, icy veins and in game I also use Pawn. ALL of them disagree on stat weights and it is confusing me to tears! I was stacking mastery, now ask mr robot says crit > mastery on raid healing: auto. Mastery > Crit on raid healing: max heal. Crit > Mastery on Raid healing: Spread healing. And of course it all changes again for Mythic+. As my time online is VERY limited, I have very little gold and cannot afford to even buy a lot of the high end enchants and gems, etc, let alone change everything around repeatedly. Pawn shows one thing to be an upgrade, but even with the new 7.1.5 patch, askmrrobot will make me leave an 865 trinket with a great bonus on it in my bags in favor of an 835 trinket just because it has a socket and matches THEIR stat weights. Then I come here, which I used to use exclusively and they say, and I quote,
      1.1. Raid Healing
      Intellect; Haste; Critical Strike; Mastery; Versatility. 1.2. Tank / Mythic+ Healing
      Intellect; Haste; Mastery; Critical Strike; Versatility.  
      So my question is this, and I will follow with my current armory and healing style. WHAT stat weights do I go for and since I really truly SUCK at math and have NO clue how to change stat weights in Pawn or askmrrobot either one, can someone walk me through how to and what they should read to reflect the proper weights, so I can trust them and they agree please? I am 50 years old and this sim stuff is tough for me; I'm sorry. It's confusing for a beginner to sims and stat weights and I don't understand it or how to get the numbers I want it to reflect or what they should even be. Or how to make conversions... I am lost. My guild is small and we are STILL struggling with Heroic EN; can't get past Ursoc atm; he's a real bear... pun intended.  and Nighthold is a mess. Skorpyron is still kicking our butts there, and Helya in ToV... all on normal except for EN. I want to raid, I want to progress, and I want to improve my healing. It likely won't happen in this guild, not because we are bad, but because we do not have dedicated raiders every week. We end up pulling in far too many pugs, have a ridiculously long wipe recovery (stupid long, like 15 friggin' minutes each wipe) and it is just too casual to progress far, but some of us would like to and I want to do my part as well as be able to perhaps join some premade's and be a viable pick. Unless I do, my gear will not get better, as I have run EN normal a hundred times it seems, and there are no upgrades there.
      I do not typically heal Mythic+'s anymore, because it seems MOST of the pugs I get into are horribad and I can't heal when interrupts don't happen, focusing down the right mobs first does not happen, positioning does not happen and no one seems to know the strats. Sometimes it is just a BAD tank. I do not have confidence in my heals because of some awful runs, and so I just don't go. We have an awesome Pally tank I trust to tank them, but he is seldom on and the guild really doesn't run much of anything together. So I have no set group to run with that I trust.
      Atm my healing style is to always keep up two rejuvs on both tanks as well as lifebloom on the one currently taking threat and most damage, as well as Efflorescence of course, all while blanketing the raid with HoTs, Wild Growth and Flourish/artifact weapon talent. I also, of course, hit a tank taking or preparing to take, a lot of damage with Cenarion Ward and Ironbark. I really hate raid healing and much prefer tank healing, but I heal what needs to be healed while focusing as much as I can on tanks. I can't tell you our raid make-up as we have no set group; too much pugging. I will say that we usually always have two Resto Druids, and a Disc Priest, and sometimes we have our Shaman switch to heals or our Holy Paladin will make a rare appearance, or our Paladin tank will switch to heals. That is our base makeup, subject to no shows and pugs of course. 
      Here is my armory; please be gentle lol.  http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/ghostlands/Scamper/simple
      I realize I have a lot of gems and enchants I need, and will start working on that as gold allows, and when I know WHAT to get! I will mention that I talked to a Resto Druid friend of mine from another server, Tsoula, who heals mythic raids and he said to pretty much balance haste crit and mastery as much as possible without worrying too much until I can get the cloak of shame from Kara, and the two set bonus, all of which require high crit, and then switch to stacking crit. Is he right?
      I apologize for the length of this post and welsome all feedback, but please be kind. I run into enough unkind people in game. Thanks <3

      Hello,
      I just wanted to share something that can greatly benefits resto druids. Maybe I'm just stating the obvious or the already well known but Vuhdo has a great feature that completely changed my resto gameplay. It's the hot minibars.

      I play most of the time with germination, meaning I have 3 main hots to monitor: 2 rejuv (2 blue minibars), and 1 lifebloom (purple minibar). Efflorescence has already a visual effect making it easy to track and wild growth is not a hot you want to maintain.
      This make tracking hots on your party/raid a piece of cake. You know exactly which hot is about to expire and you can anticipate refreshs, especially in those hard hitting mythic10+, making sure your tank is never running out of hots.
      Here's the minibars in action:
      Here's the vuhdo profile, but you may simply play with the hot bar options and colors:
