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!

Hey thanks, that'd be great!

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

      restoration druid nerfs 8.1

      I saw on Wowhead that Restro druids are receiving a nerf to  Tranquility : Heals all allies within 40 yards for [(41%37% of Spell power) * 5] over 8 sec. Each heal heals the target for another 16 over 8 sec, stacking.
      Healing increased by 100% when not in a raid.

      I feel like its not necssary and are going to effect my healing in a bad way duh. (Nerfs normally do.) But as it is right now im far behind Mistweaver munks and every priest spec. 
      My Tranquility is my second higest if not the higest healing abillity i have (Thats what Details Tells me.) 

      And im unsure how the Autumn leaves changes is gonna effect me, wheter or not its for the better or worse.

      What do you guys think?

      This is my first post please no roast 👶

      Any opinion on the Azerite gear with "Flesh rending"?
      I tried it and although it makes you add "Thrash" to your rotation, all your shreds now deal 926 more dmg, which brings Shred from 2090 dmg (2508 on bleeding targets) to 3016 (+20% on bleeding targets). My dps went up quite a lot since I took this Azerite talent.
      Although it is mentionned in the Icy Veins "Azerite Traits" page on the Feral DPS section, it does not appear on the Azerite Trait Chart, showing how much % it brings to you dps compared to other traits. I haven't seen any Youtube Feral Player mention it in their video either.
      I wonder if it would be worth it to change some feral talents for something that allows to cast more shreds (like Moment of clarity, etc.. 
      Try it. It's worth it. It might be our savior.
      Any opinion on this?
