[Resto] Tackeling Meters

Recommended Posts

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.

This is all great info! Thanks folks. 


Since posting this we killed it with 15 people; and they took 4 healers! :( It made me very sad to think why...

      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:
      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.

      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:
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

      I recently obtained several high item level trinkets for resto, but since healing isn't supported on simcraft I have no way of telling what to use when.
      I have a 930 Amalgam's Seventh Spine, a 910 The Deceiver's Grand Design, a 905 Sea Star of the Depthmother, and a 910 Bloom of New Growth
      I'm currently using the grand design and sea star, but am wondering if any of the others are better than the star.
      I also have a question about ele trinkets, specifically at what number of targets I should swap my 930 Tarnished Sentinel Medallion for my 920 Spectral Thurible? My second ele trinket is a 895 Whispers in the Dark, which as far as I can tell should always be used.

      Hello All,
      I need some help!  My HPS seems a bit low, and I need some advice on how to up my healing.  My role in raids is to focus on the tank/off tank  and raid heal as I can.  I've taken up this role for two reasons: I am the most consistent healer, being that I am almost always there, and two, because my BF is the main tank, and since we live together, it's easier for us to coordinate cool downs between us.
      My ilvl is currently 890, I have two legendaries, and my artifact is maxed.  I do have two other legendaries in my bags, but they are the neck putting me in my own little bubble, and the pvp ring.  Below are my current stats.
      I realize I use Regrowth more than I should, but it generally is my "OH SHIT" button.
      What can I change to up my healing and help the raid?

      Hello! I am Syanah. :) 
      Anyway onto the details. I'm at 904 equipped currently. My weapon is at 919 with two of the ones that makes Living Seed do more healing, and the one that increases mana regeneration. As of writing this I have 48 traits. My talents are Cenarion Ward, Displacer, Guardian Affinity, Typhoon, Cultivation, Germination, and Flourish. My haste is at 26%, my crit is at 17%, mastery at 11%, and (somehow even though I just kinda ignore it) versatility at 12%. 
      Ok. My rotation for large amounts of burst is normally wild growth, swiftmend the lowest, cenarion ward on the next lowest, then throwing rejuvs as much as i can before florishing.
      My tank rotation is just keep as many hots on them as i can, use Ironbark when it's off and when they need it a lot, and keep Cenarion on the tank taking the most damage.
      For large damage on people i immediately hit Ironbark, regrowth to stabilise if it's very bad, then other hots to get a better Swiftmend. 
      For my mana issues I first like to use what I call "manaburst". It's pretty much just a macro binding Innervate and Essence of G'hanir to work together. I also have Leytorrent potions. 
      For legendaries I currently use Essence of Infusion and Velen's Future Sight. I have The Dark Titans Advice, Pyrdaz, and X'oni's Caress. Trinkets I have Ephemeral Paradox, Etraeus' Celestial Map, and the Flask of Solemn night. I use Solemn night and Velen's.  I have my four piece in the form of cape, head, pants, and shoulders. 
      Soooo.. pretty much it'd seem like I'd be doing ok but honestly I feel like I don't do enough. (These aren't 100% accurate numbers, so be warned.) I usually seem to be around 400-600k, but it drops to mostly 200-400k at the end of fights. I raid in a heroic guild, so it's a little less important that I be the very elite of the elite, but still. There's 3 healers in all. Myself, another Resto, and a Holy priest. We have another healer, a resto shaman, who doesn't heal all that much anymore but still. Pretty much I'm always behind them the holy and the other resto. (They are really good though, so /shrug)
      Anyway I'm going to post my armory, and warcraftlogs. (I have no idea how to use logs so... here goes!) 
      annnd hoping it worrrrks
      Log I think if this works:
      I think I got it to show my healing from on of our runs... I think. 
      This is the most recent I can find. 
      So basically I just wanna know from some other restos how it looks, how to improve, and what I should look to do. Been worried that my healing isn't up to par with what a 904 should be so that's what mostly made me post this and because I wanna be the best i can be for my guild and our progression for Tomb. :)
      (Also I apologize if I this wrong. I have no idea what I'm doing.)
