Long Time Resto Druid Asking for help

Recommended Posts

I have been a Resto druid since WOLK.  I love healing on a druid and I am happy with the changes in Legion.

I have a few questions... First I use AskMrRobot for help with gearing but I do not agree with their stat weights, so I have made changes and have used multiple sites to check.  I just feel there is a wide discrepancy between what theory people think.  I know for Mythic+ Mastery is valued much more than Haste.  But in Raids Haste and Crit are valued.  I am trying to find a base stat weight so I do not have to constantly change based on Mythics vs Raids as I do both.  I am no longer Hard Core Progression Raider but i do like to make sure I am playing my toon to the best of my ability.

The stat weights I use currently are from Noxxic  Int (9.06), Haste (7.56), Crit (6.06), Mastery (4.56), Vers (3.06)

I also saw these Stat weights from Sometimes a Tree    Int (1.0), Haste (.625), Mastery (.61), Crit (.592), Vers (.518)    This was told as more of a Mythic+ setup, but not sure if it is a good overall stat weight.

AskMrRobot Stat weights put way too much emphasis on Mastery in my opinion.   I have always been part of the stacking Haste Philosophy.  But want to know what the community thinks and f someone found a good balance of the stats for both Raiding and Mythic +


My other question is about performance and mana issues, we are running normal and gonna start doing heroics and I want to be successful so any help would be appreciated from the community.

My Armory at the moment is this, but I have alot of gear saved depending on stat weights it changes.


My most recent logs that I have are here


Thanks again to the community!!

Looking for some constructive advice!!

Hello there!

I'd strongly recommend using Resto Druid Stat Weights when it comes to figuring out good weights to use (https://wow.curseforge.com/addons/rdsw/). It's just a weakaura string, but super helpful in seeing how things change in different situations. The addon lets you save it to a text file. Generally, weights derived from actual play will be better than sims, and you also get the bonus of having it tailored to your current stats rather than generic numbers. Also, you don't have to trust Noxxic. Never trust Noxxic.

If you're trying to keep only one gear set, best thing to do would be to figure out your weights for each type of content you play, normalize them to int = 1 (just divide all the weights by the int value), then do a weighted average between your two sets. You can then decide how much to value each type of content -- maybe you want 60% raid and 40% m+, or something. Then it's just plug and chug into Mr Robot. An alternative approach might be to just gear for raids and figure your M+ will be fine -- Haste and Crit stay good in M+; Mastery just goes from kinda crappy to slightly better than crit. You'll be slightly worse than you could be in M+ by switching gear sets, but you won't be seriously gimping yourself like you would be taking an M+ set into a raid.

All that being said, you'll find that ilvl is a pretty decent substitute for asking Mr Robot on everything except jewelry and trinkets.  We restos are lucky in that INT is still our best stat by a reasonable margin, unlike a lot of DPS specs right now (*cries for Boomy*). If you're looking to save time (which imo would be the main motivation behind not maintaining two gear sets), I'd do something like :

- Best ilvl on armor and capes
- Best ilvl w/ haste on jewlery, unless the non-haste pieces is substantially higher ilvl
- Use the icy-veins guide for trinket choice

hope that helps!

Sighelm...  Thank you so much for this response.

I don't understand how weak auras and that string work.   I guess I can just upload the add-on and put that string and see what happens.  But I am pretty good with add ons but I just don't understand what using that string does.   Does it just download a file somewhere?

I agree with you that I should just use a Raid setup and use it in mythic + as well.  That is what I have been doing and I have not suffered that much.

I also was just wondering what rest druids thought of the logs I posted, to make sure I am on the correct path for this expansion.

Thanks again for your insight

How do you feel about this website as a guide for stats  It puts Haste above Int which is confusing to me



Right now Int is KING! 

There are very few situations where you want to drop ilvl (read int) for haste. 

Currently Haste/Crit as secondary stats is the best for raiding as mastery doesn't benefit you much as it is hard and very mana inefficent to keep a full raid team decked out it hots!

In mythic+ tho mastery is better than crit for the reason being that you can actually multi hot people easily and get the benefits of our mastery!

Currently I use these stat weights

Raid: Int = 1, Haste = 0.725, Crit = 0.7, Mastery = 0.6, Vers = 0.65

Mythic+: Int = 1, Haste = 0.75, Crit = 0.7, Mastery = 0.9, Vers = 0.65

These weights have been working great for me at least!

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.
      More Info:
      Feel free to reach out to us:

      I am after some help on resto druid BIS trinket. I have been looking at AskMrRobot and Icy Veins with noxxic for stat weightings.
      AskMrRobot recommends Bottled Hurricane so highly. which contradicts icy veins and even when I try changing the stats as they had different stat priorities on noxxic and that still recommended the same trinket. I am guessing it is the haste that is ranking so high, would this trinket also be affected by mastery?
      They also say AskMrRobot trinkets is a work in progress so I also wonder on the accuracy.
      I could not find much info around trinkets, if anyone knows good sites to check I would appreciate that too.
      I should note my focus is raid heals.
      I also wonder if i am mis-understanding the stat ratings on AskMrRobot - i thought it was the order you prioritized stats and then a weighting for each. is this correct and if so what is the best way to determine weighting?

I uploaded the screenshot of this addon. What im asking is, does someone know what is the name of this addon.? Thanks for your attention

      Vanguard Of The Red (H-Turalyon) is a newly created guild seeking to form a new raid team from scratch to finish out 6.1 and be prepared for 6.2 immediately. If we can get the 20 raiders we want to progress mythic content. 
      Raid nights are tentatively set for Tues and Thurs 8:30-11:30 EST (Times and days are flexible) 2 of these three days, potentially all 3 if we get 20 and run mythic , Alt gearing runs set for sundays or mondays.
      What were're looking for: all roles, we currently have 9 raiders in our core, we need to fill out more spots to clear heroic BRF and gear for Mythic progression.
      Specifically we would like a Monk and or Prot Pally tank, Resto Druid & Disco Priest healers, a rogue, and a warrior or feral dps, with viable tank OS, a mage and one additional ranged of any class. All specs and classes are welcome though, but we're looking for maximum output and solid raid comp. 
      We base or raid strats on personal experience in the fights and the guild Vox Immortalis strat videos. We're organized and serious about wanting to progression raid, we will raid with dedication, you will be expected to show up on time, know your role and requirements for each fight, how to apply your skills and abilities to each boss mechanic. You will be pushed, and you will be expected to exceed expectations.
      Who we're looking for: Experienced adult players who want to truly test their skills in heroic, and potentially, mythic end game content. You should be familiar with your class and spec, understand the fights, be willing to adapt to evolving mechanics and strategies and have an ilvl of 670 or better.( If you're close we will consider helping the right people to gear fully.)
      Who we don't want: Screamers, ragers or uptight stress filled players. It's a game, realize sometimes even the best players makes a mistake and enjoy the game.
      Our guild is a social and active guild, we want to raid, learn and progress through bosses at a steady pace, we're not worried about server firsts, top 50 rankings or any other high stress generating artificial means of measuring success. We want a team of people who enjoy the game, enjoy the lore and enjoy each others company. A caustic, sarcastic and raunchy sense of humor is nearly as important as skill. I can help you be a better raider, I can't help you be a better person.
      If this interests you, send me a realid req@ bloodgod#1142.
