Help with my Resto

6 posts in this topic

Hey all! I've been maining a resto driud for about three expansions and I'm loving Legion! I thought I was getting the hang of raid healing, stacking crit & haste instead of haste and mastery, unless I'm running Mythic +, but today I was completely blown out the water by a pug resto with 15 less ilvls than me. Looking at logs, it looks like he was relying heavily on Wildgrowth (while not going oom... witchcraft!). But I feel like I'm really missing something about my class here and was hoping you wonderful folks could look over my logs and tell me just what I'm doin' wrong:

My Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/proudmoore/Zingaraa/advanced

Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/compare/qKghL8H1cNrfvjpJ/qKghL8H1cNrfvjpJ#fight=1,1&source=9,-2

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

 

Additionally, random question, when you switch to cultivation & spring blossoms, is it worth it to also switch to gear thats more mastery & haste?

 

Thanks in advance! <3

Well, this is a tricky one :)

I found a very serious difference in your Rejuv average healing per cast. Taking Nythendra kill, average cast for Glorey was 298K, yours - 182K. Pretty much the same in the other fights. 

There are three things that make the difference (and here I'm showing only the 'technical' difference without referring to any of it as a good or bad gameplay):

- first, the guys has much more Mastery than you do, 7878 vs 1920. While you are right about general prio of Crit > Mastery in raids, it still should be more balanced rather than completely ignored.

- second, that is even more important in my opinion, you have much much more overheal than Glorey in every fight - more than double amount. He casts faster and choose targets better.

- third, you spend a lot of time dpsing - it's not bad at all, it's a good thing - but adds to the difference too. Glorey is fully focused on healing while you are spending 15-20% of time doing other things.

 

Hope it helps. :)

  1. Your Wild Growth healed for average 745k, only 745k, which means it was partially wasted on overheal and/or not buffed by Soul of the Forest - this is very powerful talent in Legion when paired with Prosperity and works miracles when used on Wild Growth in raid environment. With your gear level it should heal average 1,3-2,4kk per cast while buffed. Don't spam it, but considering resto artifact traits are heavily focused on WG use it wisely and try to prepare yourself for incoming damage burst by leaving one charge on Swiftmend, just to buff your next WG. Also prolong it with Flourish or speed it up with artifact power when needed and/or cover few buddies with Rejuvenation so the WG could benefit from mastery.
  2. Only 9x Swiftmend - with Prosperity talent it should be either used on cooldown on any target with low current HP (considering it heals for more than Regrowth) or to prebuff your next Wild Growth.

PS. As Pandacho stated, regardless of the talent choices it seems to be a good idea not to ignore your mastery completely. Personally I like to keep it around 15-20%, but thats parially because we don't have a designated tank healer i.e. holy pala or MW monk, thus I'm raiding with Germination to stack more hots on tanks. Besides it actually proves to be a nice choice for some fights, where raid members are spread or moving a lot, especially Il'gly'ugly'eye'noth or Cenarius. TBH I've never found a good use for Cultivation, additional heals seems low.

Same old issue : 4 healers for 15 players, way too much !

2 is enough. You can still raid with 4 healers, the objective is to kill bosses... but HPS numbers dont mean anything in this case.

Thank you all for the great input! I have switched up my gear. I carry a lot in my bags because 1) I'm a hoarder and 2) Just in case. I was trying to find good normalized and nonnormalized weights for both AMR and Pawn. Every string i found placed mastery rather low, so, bumping it up a little gave me a better, overall stat distribution (I hope) : http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/proudmoore/Zingaraa/advanced

 

I'll work on choosing better targets. This has always been my folly. Any additional tips are appreciated regarding this. I do focus Melee some, but other than that, yes, hots go wasted :/


Additionally, I advocated strongly for no pug heals, but my GM was all "I'm drunk and I don't want to heal too hard" I seriously think 4 is too much too. Which is why I did DPS during certain times because there was no damage goin' out. My guild has a history of running too many healers on farm content. I'm the heal lead, but my GM is an opinionated Canadian so my suggestions are ignored ;)

In this case, simply ignore hps in raids and enjoy the raids as much as possible. Hide the skada/recount window. Throw some jokes on the vocal.

Go in mythic+ for the challenge, there's plenty of it.

      Hey guys, need a hand here please. I have healed off and on for years with one or the other of several Resto Druids I have. I also frequently (prior to Legion) heal with a Disc Priest (until Legion, now she is parked), a Mistweaver Monk (not 110 yet) and a couple of Resto Shamans (also not 110 yet).
      I am a really good but not exceptional healer, though I am the strongest healer in the guild atm on most fights, not all. I am disabled, so I can't spend as much time online as I would like, so any help would be much appreciated.
      My question is this: I use askmrrobot.com, icy veins and in game I also use Pawn. ALL of them disagree on stat weights and it is confusing me to tears! I was stacking mastery, now ask mr robot says crit > mastery on raid healing: auto. Mastery > Crit on raid healing: max heal. Crit > Mastery on Raid healing: Spread healing. And of course it all changes again for Mythic+. As my time online is VERY limited, I have very little gold and cannot afford to even buy a lot of the high end enchants and gems, etc, let alone change everything around repeatedly. Pawn shows one thing to be an upgrade, but even with the new 7.1.5 patch, askmrrobot will make me leave an 865 trinket with a great bonus on it in my bags in favor of an 835 trinket just because it has a socket and matches THEIR stat weights. Then I come here, which I used to use exclusively and they say, and I quote,
      1.1. Raid Healing
      Intellect; Haste; Critical Strike; Mastery; Versatility. 1.2. Tank / Mythic+ Healing
      Intellect; Haste; Mastery; Critical Strike; Versatility.  
      So my question is this, and I will follow with my current armory and healing style. WHAT stat weights do I go for and since I really truly SUCK at math and have NO clue how to change stat weights in Pawn or askmrrobot either one, can someone walk me through how to and what they should read to reflect the proper weights, so I can trust them and they agree please? I am 50 years old and this sim stuff is tough for me; I'm sorry. It's confusing for a beginner to sims and stat weights and I don't understand it or how to get the numbers I want it to reflect or what they should even be. Or how to make conversions... I am lost. My guild is small and we are STILL struggling with Heroic EN; can't get past Ursoc atm; he's a real bear... pun intended.  and Nighthold is a mess. Skorpyron is still kicking our butts there, and Helya in ToV... all on normal except for EN. I want to raid, I want to progress, and I want to improve my healing. It likely won't happen in this guild, not because we are bad, but because we do not have dedicated raiders every week. We end up pulling in far too many pugs, have a ridiculously long wipe recovery (stupid long, like 15 friggin' minutes each wipe) and it is just too casual to progress far, but some of us would like to and I want to do my part as well as be able to perhaps join some premade's and be a viable pick. Unless I do, my gear will not get better, as I have run EN normal a hundred times it seems, and there are no upgrades there.
      I do not typically heal Mythic+'s anymore, because it seems MOST of the pugs I get into are horribad and I can't heal when interrupts don't happen, focusing down the right mobs first does not happen, positioning does not happen and no one seems to know the strats. Sometimes it is just a BAD tank. I do not have confidence in my heals because of some awful runs, and so I just don't go. We have an awesome Pally tank I trust to tank them, but he is seldom on and the guild really doesn't run much of anything together. So I have no set group to run with that I trust.
      Atm my healing style is to always keep up two rejuvs on both tanks as well as lifebloom on the one currently taking threat and most damage, as well as Efflorescence of course, all while blanketing the raid with HoTs, Wild Growth and Flourish/artifact weapon talent. I also, of course, hit a tank taking or preparing to take, a lot of damage with Cenarion Ward and Ironbark. I really hate raid healing and much prefer tank healing, but I heal what needs to be healed while focusing as much as I can on tanks. I can't tell you our raid make-up as we have no set group; too much pugging. I will say that we usually always have two Resto Druids, and a Disc Priest, and sometimes we have our Shaman switch to heals or our Holy Paladin will make a rare appearance, or our Paladin tank will switch to heals. That is our base makeup, subject to no shows and pugs of course. 
      Here is my armory; please be gentle lol.  http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/ghostlands/Scamper/simple
      I realize I have a lot of gems and enchants I need, and will start working on that as gold allows, and when I know WHAT to get! I will mention that I talked to a Resto Druid friend of mine from another server, Tsoula, who heals mythic raids and he said to pretty much balance haste crit and mastery as much as possible without worrying too much until I can get the cloak of shame from Kara, and the two set bonus, all of which require high crit, and then switch to stacking crit. Is he right?
      I apologize for the length of this post and welsome all feedback, but please be kind. I run into enough unkind people in game. Thanks <3

      Hello,
      I just wanted to share something that can greatly benefits resto druids. Maybe I'm just stating the obvious or the already well known but Vuhdo has a great feature that completely changed my resto gameplay. It's the hot minibars.

      I play most of the time with germination, meaning I have 3 main hots to monitor: 2 rejuv (2 blue minibars), and 1 lifebloom (purple minibar). Efflorescence has already a visual effect making it easy to track and wild growth is not a hot you want to maintain.
      This make tracking hots on your party/raid a piece of cake. You know exactly which hot is about to expire and you can anticipate refreshs, especially in those hard hitting mythic10+, making sure your tank is never running out of hots.
      Here's the minibars in action:
      Here's the vuhdo profile, but you may simply play with the hot bar options and colors:
