resto druid help

4 posts in this topic

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.

Hello, I'm one of those currently mid-ilvl resto druids who outheals higher-item level healers, including fellow resto druids, by a LOT.

 

This is my armory. Not very good gear yet, but I'll be working on in a lot in this next week (I've put it off long enough!):

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/misha/Bankersuzy/simple

 

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 damage, like BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM!, then use Tranquility near the largest amount of people. Mind its cooldown. Tranquility cannot be cast while moving. It's one of your major CDs.

 

If (preferably the tank) is taking (or about to take in the next few seconds or so) 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, preferable 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...

      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.

      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, Dota, 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.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.
