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

      Hello!
      I was wondering how I could improve my damage to log higher as a feral! My armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/silvermoon/wólfíé
      and all of my logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/silvermoon/wólfíé
      I usually maintain bleeds 95+% of the time and don't waste combo points, I cast tigers fury and open with rake, ashmane's then shred and rip (I skip the extra shred if I get 2 combo points from rake)  then I just shred and fbite spam (and making sure to use trinkets on cd) What should I change to log 95+?
      I have legendary gloves and wrists for feral if I should change legendaries. 
      thanks in advance!

      Hi all,
      I'm currently playing a restro druid mainly for Raid - Mythic +
      Can somebody explain to me; especially for raids, why my HPS is very low compared to the other healers.
      I'm currently going with 936 gs - Shoulder Leg & Finger Leg (2nd talent in lvl75)
      Crit 19%
      Haste 21%
      Mastery 27%
      Versatility 2%
      All of my items habe atleast Mastery - even 8 Items Mastery & Haste.
      Nevertheless I'm unable to compete in HPS during raids HC + Mythic.
      Maybe it's something related to my rota - my current play style is:
      - Lifeboom on tank combined with cenarion ward & rejuvenation.
      - Dotting all others with rejuvenation
      - Effloresecence somewhere at meeles
      - wild growth as soon as multipe dmg mostly combined then with flourish
      - tranquility for heavy aoe
      - swiftmed for heavy heals
      etc...
       
      The problem is, even with this I cannot heal more than 400 - 600hps while the other healers are going with 1 mio hps.
      Maybe someone can explain my mistake.
       
      Thanks

      I figured I'd do a Part 2 of this since I've managed to move from having never tanked before to now I can't get enough of it. 
      I've noticed a few things and wanted as much input as I can get. What has struck me so far is the lack of healers running PUGs at the lvl 60-ish area. It takes forever to get a PUG group together and I haven't been able to keep a healer with us more than 1 run through. I've made some DPS friends through PUGs which is pretty cool, but what is up with the healers???
      The second thing is how my damage relates to a few other classes at about the same level. I'm currently lvl 67. I'm able to hold aggro nearly most of the time. I have some PUG members than have a pet with taunt or something but for the most part I am good to go. What I will see are Death Knights and some Warlock/Mages that seem to be doing crazy damage while only being a level or 2 higher than I am. Is that normal or am I undergeared? I haven't quite downloaded a damage meter just yet but from watching the health bar on the enemies I've noticed that those 2 can do some big damage by themselves! So is it a gear issue with me, is it just the nature of their class at that level or are they over-geared with extra goodies figuring their main has helped pay for their current state of their equipment? And with that, any recommendations or just hang in there until I get much higher level when better equipment appears? I have Heirloom for my chest, back, shoulders, weapon and trinkets. I haven't really found any quest gear or dungeon drops that is better that what I have now.
      I can't say Thank You enough to everybody that posted advice and encouragement in my first thread. It was very helpful and I've taken a lot of it to heart and put it to work. I have had so much fun doing this...as like most things in life you are leery of...once you try it you only regret NOT doing it sooner.

      Recently downloaded Vuhdo, and I'm completely lost on how to set it up. I was wondering if anyone had any restoration druid profiles they'd be willing to share along with screenshots of how it looks? Thank you in advance!
