resto druid help

Recommended Posts

I need some help with my resto druid, I've been healing for long time but stopped for a while and got back into this xpac. i average about 40k hps if im lucky people with less gear than me outheal me by 20k here is what i mainly use

 

i keep Rejuv and germination and lifebloom on both tanks

and rejuv on dps if they are taking damage

place my mushroom in middle of melee  or whoever takes alot of damage from fights

i use wild growth when raid is suffering heavy raid damage 

regrowth/healing touch as a filler

 

I will attach my armory so you can see my gear and might be able to find out what im doing wrong.

I suggest trying to get more Mastery and Haste, especially Haste, when you get the RNG break. Use rejuv more often on people especially when you know there's gonna be a major damage spike soon, also you can use genesis when that happens so all your Rejuvs tick and run out faster (in 3 seconds) while still healing for the same amount (try to use it sparingly, as it has a high mana cost). Remember that just because they haven't already taken damage, doesn't mean they're not about to. Pay attention to where they're standing, if there's anything coming at you, and what the boss/mobs are about to do (are they gonna cleave? Blow something up? Stomp? Throw fire somewhere? Cast a raid-wide damage spell? Break the floor?).

 A reminder if you forgot: Swiftmend is an insta-heal that can only be used on a target with a Rejuv up on them (doesn't have to be your rejuv).

Don't forget to keep using a single-target spell (like Healing Touch or Regrowth) to proc Harmony, which increases the healing of your periodic heals (Rejuv, Lifebloom, Germination, et cetera) by a base 10%. I myself sometimes forget about it, though I'm usually pretty good at keeping it up.

Healing Touch has a 20% increased Critical Strike chance on people with Lifebloom up. Low Health Tank+Lifebloom+Nature's Swiftness+Healing Touch= Yes. Add in a few Regrowths if necessary.

Pay particular attention to keep Lifebloom up because it has a chance to proc Omen of Clarity, which causes your next Regrowth to be free.

If you pay attention to dispels (which you should), I suggest using the glyph of Nature's Cure in fights where you'll need to be dispelling. It helps. A lot.

If someone's not about to die/not taking a huge amount of damage super fast, use Healing Touch instead of Regrowth. Your mana will thank you.

If the raid is taking huge amounts of damage, then use Tranquility. Mind its cooldown. Tranquility cannot be cast while moving, and it's one of your major CDs.

If (preferably the tank) is about to take major damage, use Ironbark on them. This is one of your small CDs you can pop. Ironbark reduces all damage taken by 20% for 12 seconds.

I suggest using Heart of the Wild instead of Nature's Vigil, as it increases the amount of healing you do by 35% when you use it. Long CD, but very worth it when you need it.

Make sure, as you said you have been, to keep your mushroom by where there's the largest amount of people, preferably people who need to be healed/will soon need to be healed. Remember that it doesn't last 5 minutes or whatever any longer, so you need to reapply it every 30 seconds.

That's all I can think of right now. I'll let you know if I think of any other tips. smile.png

Here are some topics on which ppl can commonly fail:

- Lifebloom uptime. 4pc is damn strong, and it is quite easy to miss on LB uptime without some flashy helper (weakaura). Besides the lots of regrowth procs. Sometimes it tops % even on AoE heavy fights. Make sure it is always up. Target doesnt have to be a tank.

- Same goes from harmony and shroom. Have weakauras for them. You dont need AOE damage or a stacked raid to use mushroom, since it only heals 3.

- Seed of creation not necessarily BiS. You lose LOTS of stats from using it. So is 10%- Flourish worthy? Are you getting oom? Play with other trinkets, it way work a bit better.

- Be faster than the other healers. Land Wild Growth on second zero after touch of doom, chackram, pound or rumbling fissure comes.

- Wild growth is NOT expensive and has huge priority. 6 fast rejuvenations at the cost of 4. Save mana on rejuvenations or by using healing touch.

- Have as goal ending the fight with 0-15% mana WITH the usage of the channeled mana potion (on intensive fights). You ended 3-feast Gorefiend with 20% without using mana potion? Bad.

- Exploit your cleave healing strength in fights like Kilrogg and Sorethar. Dont wait dotted ppl to get low. Pump dem hots.

- Be aware of the fight damage patterns, so you make better use of cooldowns like incarnation. Ex: On Kilrogg when 4+ ppl got debuff, on Soc when 4+ ppl got gift. On Arch when chains and allure align. On Zakuun as soon as he disarms...

- Regrowth has the least benefit from incarnation. Rejuv and wild growth are the most boosted, so use them mainly.

- If you wont get out of mana, predict damage bursts with rej + genesis. Ex grasping hands, pound, zakuun seed, chackram. Rule of thumb it's ok to use genesis if it wont overheal 4 + ppl and you wont get OOM during the fight (ex: gorefiend is mana intensive, should use carefully there).

weakauras

-- Lifebloom --

Shows if there are not 2 LBs up.

Install and enable addon from

http://www.filedropper.com/watools

(you know any better website to host this? lol)

Use this weakaura:

(the weakaura requires the addon to be loaded or it will freeze the hell out when enabled)

--Harmony--

http://pastebin.com/aq00zSL3-- shown when about to expire

http://pastebin.com/CpuqF8Xp-- shown when expired

put them on top of each other (or inside a dyn group)

sorry about the addon part, I once wanted to separate my weakauras codes into an addon for organization...

      Paladin Cards:                                                
      2x Crystology 2x Flash of Light 1x Lightforged Blessing 1x Crystalsmith Kangor 2x Time Out! 2x Consecration 2x Truesilver Champion 1x Hammer of Wrath 1x Prismatic Lens 2x Holy Wrath 2x Shrink Ray 1x Lay on Hands 1x Shirvallah, the Tiger Neutral Cards:
      1x Bloodsail Corsair 2x Wild Pyromancer 2x Novice Engineer 2x Baleful Banker 2x Violet Spellsword 1x Zilliax  
      General:
      Here is my Version of the OTK-Paladin. I was playing a long time with 2x Prismatic Lens, but i always felt like going into a bigger risk when casting it later on without drawing Shirvallah, the Tiger.  As well i always struggled with my Handsome and ending up overdrawing or just dumping Cards out. So i Cut 1 Prismatic Lens and 1 Hammer of Wrath.  As well as the big draw from Lay on Hands makes up for missing those Card-draws.
       For giving up those i put in the Violet Spellsword ´s. Because you usually have atleast 3 spells in hand she makes an awesome Body on the board giving you some breathing time. (Also you can draw it from Crystology because it is a 1- Attack minion. You have to try it out it gives you a a Contester for the board.
      The Lightforged Blessing  is an awesome tool to play with Wild Pyromancer and Violet Spellsword.
      Since you have a lot Healing-tools it is fine to trade some Health for getting a better value out of Shrink Ray and Time Out! ´s for later on to ensure you the combo.
      Because of that Crystalsmith Kangor feels really important. It has so much potential to heal you to full again. Beside the obvious choices to play it with Flash of Light and Lay on Hands. it Heals a lot with your Lifesteal Minions (Zilliax, Shirvallah, the Tiger, Lightforged Blessing).
       
      Strategy:
      Your main Win Condition is having the combination of Shirvallah, the Tiger, Holy Wrath and Baleful Banker in hand while your Deck is empty.
      When you have 0 Cards in your deck you want to play Shirvallah, the Tiger after that you shuffle it in your deck as your only card with Baleful Banker.
      Now Holy Wrath is ensured to do 25 Damage in his face. Against most classes having the combo once (25 Damage) is enough. That means you can use 1 Holy Wrath for clearing a minion and drawing faster to the bottom of your deck. And as well the combination of Shirvallah, the Tiger and Baleful Banker to clear a minion during the game and heal! It often is important to use against Rogues and Hunter.
      Against Warriors u need to have the Combo twice to deal 50 Damage in the end. During the game you can suffer some Damage to your face in order to make sure he doesn't get over 50 Health. That means you hit his face with Truesilver Champion ,Hammer of Wrath, and obviously with your Violet Spellsword. 
      In order to reach the bottom of your deck  you have a lot of drawing tools like Crystology, Novice Engineer, Lay on Hands, Flash of Light, Prismatic Lens). 
      To make sure you live until that point you have to make smart use of: Time Out!, Shrink Ray, your Wild Pyromancer ´s. And to double your healing tools like Lay on Hands Flash of Light and Zilliax with Crystalsmith Kangor.  You can often surprise the enemy with the amount of healing this can potentially do. Often it is nice to suffer some damage in face to get a better board clear with Shrink Ray+Wild Pyromancer.
      As well Consecration + Wild Pyromancer can deal 3 (maybe even 4 if you have another cheap spell) to the enemy board. 
      You can as well heal a lot with Wild Pyromancer + Lightforged Blessing (if the board is full)
      That said Shrink Ray often has usage to just play alone to minimize the damage you take and buy you another turn for a better Boardclear.
       
      Start of Game: 
      You are mainly looking for Crystology. It can get you more card draw by giving you Novice Engineer. Or even a good turn 4 minion by drawing you Violet Spellsword.
      Against Aggro decks you want to maybe have an Eye on your Shrink Ray ´s, Consecration ´s and Zilliax. Against those decks it is as well really important to get as much value out of Crystalsmith Kangor (which is also drawn by Crystology) as possible.
      Also Flash of Light and Truesilver Champion are good in some Match- Ups. 
      Maybe pair it with one Combo of Shirvallah, the Tiger and Baleful Banker. Because most Aggro decks don't have a Way to generate much Armor, nor having a lot of Healing most of the Time dealing 25 in the End is enough. Playing Shirvallah, the Tiger 1 Time during the game often can save your life!
      Hope You will have as much fun with this deck as I do!

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
