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 :)

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.

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

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 :)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      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, PUBG, 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.

      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:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/cHZLXF1t8J7YMwBT
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/zGB27L8KYp4HXJZQ
      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.

      Hello!
      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:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=last&type=summary&source=15
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=4&type=summary&source=15
       
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
