Resto Druid and Mythic Fel Lord tips

14 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Just looking to see if anyone has any tips for a resto druid on mythic fel lord.  We worked on him and almost beat him last night but I have not been able to find any recommendations on mythic fel lord.  Specifically, are there any talents recommended for the encounter?

Thanks

Berdine

Hi there :)

First of all, Displacer Beast is amazing. It can help an incredible amount when moving for seeds.

I'd take Ysera's on 30.

Incarnation on 60.

Heart of the Wild on 90.

HotW is pretty amazing to have during his disarmed phase, but in all honesty, a ring pop + tranquility should make it pretty easy to breeze through.

Have you got a log to look at? Might be easier to give tips if we know what you're doing already :)

Yeah, I am pretty much doing all of that.  This was my best pull.

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/gzpyTwkXj89dv7AH#type=healing&fight=26

 

1) Work more on your Lifebloom uptime.

2) I took a look at your armory and saw that you weren't using glyph of blooming. With the class trinket and set bonus this is a really important glyph to take. Replace your glyph of stampede with blooming and you should be good to go. Other than that your talents and glyphs look fine.

3) The mythic Fel Lord fight isn't super healing intensive unless people really mess up. As long as you're healing up befouled in a timely manner outside of the raid group you shouldn't take huge damage unless latent explodes.

4) Focus on being aware of who is soaking pools and make sure they are getting the heals they need. If you fall behind on this or are out of place the fight can get pretty hairy.

5) 10 people in your group did not use 2 potions. A few didn't use any. This is just one quick issue that I found but if you're looking to kill the boss make sure to examine not only your own performance but also the rest of your raid. It's not just you that kills a boss. It's a team effort :)

Have you tried not using Heroism on pull? On progress in my guild we saved it until boss reaches 30%

Thanks for the feedback guys.  I really didn't know that the bloom glyph was a good way to go.

And yes, thanks for mentioning about the people using pots.  That is very important.

I don't see any advandage of doing that, except maybe your whole raid has executes and Lust just boosted them insanely. Other than that - Boss has no enrage mechanics, so popping everything up at the start is the way to go. At the begining of the fight every CD is up, everyone has potion, everyone has ring, and most importantly - everyone is alive.

So this part is interesting.  I did a little research and there are only a couple fights I would recommend using the blooming glyph.  Specifically on fights where people get big dots on them.  So off the top of my head, Kilrogg, Socrethar and Council stand out as good fights for the blooming glyph.  Not sure about any others.  Its a great glyph but your free regrowths, that save you mana, will no longer refresh your lifebloom.  So thats a bit of a pain in the ass.  Big mana issue there.  Now if you have a guild that is downing these mythic bosses in 2 minutes or below, its not an issue.  But if you are going 4-6 minutes on these mythic bosses, its not worth it.  At least thats what I think.

Thoughts?

I understand where this could be an issue. However I'm not quite sure why your Lifebloom uptime would be so low if you weren't using the glyph. Could you please link your UI screen shot of you in raid combat while tracking hots on raid members. This could be an easy fix with an adjustment of your UI to better help you track Lifebloom uptime. The fact of the matter is that while Lifebloom has a low mana cost the synergy of the set bonus with the class trinket and glyph of blooming is very strong. If you are more comfortable with not using it then I guess that's up to you but make sure to focus on Lifebloom uptime regardless of your spec.

So yes, I am using weakauras to track my harmony, lifebloom and wild mushroom.  Frankly, I am kind of surprised its that low.  I did a little looking and it seems to be on some of the more high mobility fights that I let my lifebloom drop off below 90%.  For most of the, I am around 98% but fel lord and for that matter, iron reaver seem to have low percentage.  In the 80% bracket.  So that is something I have to look at.  It shouldn't be that low so its something to pay attention too.  But my UI is setup to let me know when lifebloom goes off.  So I will have to look at that.

As for the blooming glyph, I am gonna try it out on the fights i mentioned, council, kilrogg and socrethar.  I think those are the fights I can see it be very useful.  But for the rest, I would expect that the glyph would just cause overheal for no good reason.

And i just figured it out.  Its how we are reading the logs.  So for the pull i linked, it has my lifebloom at 87%.  However, I was only alive for 97% of the fight.  That is what is measures up against, not the full 100% of the fight.  So i was 10% off, which is still low but not as bad as I thought for some of the other fights.  For the fights that I am up till we kill it, my lifebloom is well into the 90% range.  So its all good.

One last thing.  I took a look at resto druids in my ilvl bracket and they do not automatically glyph blooming.  about 1/3 of the resto druids on mythic socrethar, at least of the top 10, use that glyph.  So its not a gimme :)

      So, I was just wondering out of curiosity if there was a way to change the weakauras trackers for sunfire and moonfire to be based on an absolute value of the maximum time sun/moonfire lasts for rather than being based on a percentage of how long the DoT has been active on the target. Basically, doing it the normal way, if you have Nature's Balance (which you should) then using solar wrath or lunar strike will extend the duration of sunfire/moonfire, respectively. However, basically all this does to the tracker is make it decrease slightly slower each time. For the sake of convenience I'm just going to refer to it as a bar because that's what I use. I want it so that when the DoT is at its maximum possible duration, the bar is completely full, and then decrease from there. That way, it's less confusing.

      I am looking for critiques of my custom stat weights.  I want to improve it and get advice if there is a better way of calculating my numbers.  If you see basic errors with my number crunching, please let me know.
       
      Naked_Normal - 4608

      Naked_Actual_Rejuv_w/o_4.8%_Mastery - 26381.6 [Calculated by (Naked_Actual_Rejuv_with_4.8%_Mastery / 104.8%) = 27648 / 1.048 = 26,381.6]

      1421_Int_Trinket_Normal - 5502
      1421_Int_Trinket_Crit - 11002
      1421_Int_Trinket_Ticks - 6
      1421_Int_Trinket_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a 1421 Int Trinket and ignored the crit procs.  We have 4.8% Mastery, which adds 4.8% to our healing even with no gear.  I divided by 1.048 to try to get to the base healing.
      Int_Weight = (6 x (1421_Int_Trinket_Normal - Naked_Normal) / 1.048) / 1421 [1421 in the amount of Intellect on the Trinket]
      Int_Weight = (6 x (5502-4608)/1.048) / 1421
      Int_Weight = 3.602

      1165_Mastery_Ring_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a 1165 Mastery and crit ring and then ignored the crit procs.
      Mastery_Weight = (6 x ((1165_Mastery_Ring_Normal - Naked_Normal) / 1.048)) / 1165 [1165 is the amount of Mastery on the Ring]
      Mastery_Weight = (6 x ((4685 - 4608) / 1.048)) / 1165
      Mastery_Weight = 0.3784

      406_Leech_Ring_Normal - 83
      406_Leech_Ring_Crit - 165
      406_Leech_Ring_Ticks - 6
      406_Leech_Ring_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a Ring with 406 Leech, 745 Mastery and 1626 Crit.
      Leech_Weight = ((6 x 406_Leech_Ring_Normal - 745 * Mastery_Weight) / 1.048) / 406 [406 is the amount of Leech on the Ring]
      Leech_Weight = ((6 x 83 - 745 * 0.3784) / 1.048) / 406 [406 is the amount of Leech on the Ring]
      Leech_Weight = 0.5079

      945_Haste_Ring_Crit - 9216
      945_Haste_Ring_Ticks - 6
      945_Haste_Ring_Extra Tick - 1
      945_Haste_Ring_Extra_Tick_Amount - 583
      I used a Ring with 945 Haste and 1626 Crit and ignored Crit procs.
      Haste_Weight = (945_Haste_Ring_Extra_Tick_Amount / 1.048) / 945 [945 is the amount of Haste on the Ring]
      Haste_Weight = (583 / 1.048) / 945
      Haste_Weight = 0.5887

      1055_Versatility_Trinket_Normal - 4710

      1055_Versatility_Trinket_Ticks - 6
      1055_Versatility_Trinket_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a Trinket with 1055 Versatility and no other stats.
      Vers_Weight = (6 x ((1055_Versatility_Trinket_Normal - Naked_Normal) / 1.048)) / 1055 [1055 is the amount of Versatility on the Trinket]
      Vers_Weight = (6 x ((4710 - 4608) / 1.048)) / 1055
      Vers_Weight = 0.5535

      UI tooltip crit percentage increase for a 6518 Critical Strike with my gear before 6% bonus is 16.30%
      Crit_w_Gear - 16.3%
      Crit_Weight = 6 x (Naked_Crit - Naked_Normal) x (16.3% / 6518) [6518 is the total amount of Crit on my gear]
      Crit_Weight = 6 x (9216 - 4608) x (0.1630 / 6518)
      Crit_Weight = 0.6597

      I am going to increase my mastery weight since I primarily use HOTs and you have a 10% Mastery bonus for every HOT you have on a target.  I am going to increase my Mastery weight arbitrarily by 25% to account for this (choose your own weight as you prefer).  
      Int_Weight = 3.602
      Mastery_Weight+25% = 0.3784 * 125% = 0.4730
      Leech_Weight = 0.5079
      Haste_Weight = 0.5887
      Vers_Weight = 0.5535
      Crit_Weight = 0.6597
      Total_Weight = Int_Weight + Mastery_Weight+25% + Leech_Weight + Haste_Weight + Vers_Weight + Crit_Weight
      Total_Weight = 3.602 + 0.4730 + 0.5079 + 0.5887 + 0.5535 + 1.0690
      Total_Weight = 6.3848

      Int = Int_Weight / Total_Weight x 100% = 3.602 / 6.3848 x 100% = 56.41
      Mastery = Mastery_Weight+25%  / Total_Weight x 100% = 0.4730 / 6.3848 x 100% = 7.41
      Leech = Leech_Weight / Total_Weight x 100% = 0.5079 / 6.3848 x 100% = 7.95
      Haste = Haste_Weight / Total_Weight x 100% = 0.5887 / 6.3848 x 100% = 9.22
      Versatility = Vers_Weight / Total_Weight x 100% = 0.5535 / 6.3848 x 100% = 8.67
      Critical = Crit_Weight / Total_Weight x 100% = 0.6597 / 6.3848 x 100% = 10.33
      My weights
      Int= 56.41
      Mastery = 7.41
