Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster!

As a resto druid, I'm currently sitting on - 28% Haste, 20% Crit, 11% Mastery.

I'm reading that while crit has a higher priority than mastery, I should be using the mastery neck enchant over the other options.

Is there an optimal ~% haste/crit/mastery - I should be aiming for? Should I pump up my mastery and lose some crit?

I'm not a theorycrafter, I don't run simulationss, I just play my toon and hope to play it well, based on advice from people who understand it all much better than I and enjoy that side of things!

 

Thanks in advance :)

Hi there! Welcome to the forums and sorry for not replying earlier!

For the neck piece, it's entirely possible that this is an oversight by one of the writers. I'll double check it for you. I would imagine that you should be taking the enchant that buffs your crit and haste in one.

The difference between the two enchants (aside from the stats) is that one is a static increase (increases mastery by 300) and one is a proc (increases crit and haste by 550 for 6 sec). While Haste & Crit would be the ideal choice, I'm not sure how it compares to the static increase of mastery or how often it procs. So, definitely need someone who sims and does the math to chim in! :)

I'm like you.. I play based on experience and then take in the advice of those who do the sims and the math!

Glad I am not alone, haha.

 

Very keen to get one of those numbers-smart people on board with some feedback!

The reason to go with the mastery one, it doesn't proc off heals anymore, also I have 26% crit and 28 haste, I'm going with the raid healing spec, if you want to be best in dungeons/mythic+ id go mastery haste

It looks like the mastery one is intended as the best. Mainly due to static increase.

As for the other numbers questions, I haven't started playing Resto yet, so can't help on that front unfortunately :(

Heya fellow Restros!!!!

The theory behind the stats in legion is this:

5man / Mythic+ you want to be stacking Mastery as priority below haste, reason being that in this 5 man groups the majority of the damage is going to be the tank, mastery improves our single target healing in effect, increasing healing done per HoT on a target. You should be stacking EVERY HoT you have on the tank in 5man and thus giving a much higher output through mastery.

In a Raid even as small as 15man your not going to be stacking every HoT on one person, maybe close call between the two tanks but GCDs are going to also be spent on healing the raid, meaning that the 'value' of mastery drops, drops so much, the next best thing is crit, to have higher healing through less HoTs is perfect in a raid in which HoTs will be spead.

Simply:

Tank heals / single target = Mastery

Raid heals / group HoTs = Crit

      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.

      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, 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!
