So with the new Patch on our doorstep, I was wondering if anyone knows how the patch will change stat priorities. Because of the nerf to 2ndary  stats.

I don't think it affects healers that much because we always chose primary stat (Int) over secondaries unlike many non-healing specs. The change (I wouldn't call it nerf) in secondary stats weights was made to ensure the choice of higher ilvl item over 'better secondaries' item more straight forward but it didn't change the relative weight of Int vs Haste vs Crit vs Mastery for Resto Druids.

It's actually the opposite of a nerf. Instead of relying on 3rd party software to test which secondary stats is the best at a specific ilevel, you can now rely on the ilevel itself

That's true, but this doesn't mean that if you use an addon like Pawn you shouldn't be changing your stats value there. For example if you were using a value of intellect = 1 and haste = 0.8 you should apply the changes to the value cause now secondary stats gives less % than before, in the case of haste it was changed from 325haste = 1% to 375haste = 1% so you just need to do an operation like "haste value / 375 * 325" and you will get a new Pawn value, in this case it will be 0.693 instead of 0.8. Your main stat should not change cause they did nothing to primary stats (at least for resto druids).

I personally don't use addons like Pawn as a healer (you obviously are free to use whatever you think is right for you) finding this unnecessary in almost every scenario and a bit meticulous. We don't have stat soft/hard caps or break points, there's no "if you reach 31.28% Haste, your WG healing would suddenly double" so I hardly can see a reason to follow the numbers to  this depth, except for just liking to play with the numbers.

As a healers, we can simply use regular logic comparing items and deciding what's better because unlike dps, we are seriously affected by the damage done to the raid and our ability to react to this damage properly with the right spells. Spending time with Pawn figuring out tenth of a percent for a 'perfect' set of gear doesn't help a lot here in my opinion.

But as I said before, it's just my personal opinion and if you like to play with Pawn and percents, it's completely up to you :)

PS: just to show that I do heal on druid sometimes^^ and talk from my personal experience (my druid is Pandamonium): logs, logs, logs.

Good Day ,

i was reading your posts and im just wondering 1 thing, how could u do 18 traq cast on a fight like xavius after the fight ended in 5:40 min? u poped traq on the start lol ?Insert other medi

The WCL records ticks, not casts so they are 18 ticks. One full not interrupted cast includes 5 ticks as you can see for example here.

      Hello everyone,
      I want to ask for any tips on my logs, since I think I'm doing something wrong with my resto druid.
      I have good gear (currently 958 ilvl) but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS than me on the logs. I think I should be doing more than 900/1k hps, but rarely go above 700 in many fights.
      Here are a couple of logs of Antorus hc:

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/zGB27L8KYp4HXJZQ
      I searched the logs and I think one of my main problems for the lack of healing is the rejuvenations. Other druids do far more healing with same or less rejuvs, since my average casts is around 450k (and other druids go up to 750 or even 1000).
      I don't know if it's a problem with timing or overhealing (other healers snipping me), but I want to know other opinions.
      Thanks a lot for your help.

      Hello!
      I think I am doing something seriously wrong with my resto druid. I have pretty decent gear but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS then me on my recount meter. I've run simulations that said i should be getting 900hps but that's rather rare to see. During M+ runs when we're taking high damage i've seen 1-1.2mil hps - but in Antorus I feel like I'm stuck at 400-600hps
       
      Recently I've gone up 20 item levels and gotten 3 T21 pieces but haven't seen my hps improve much. I've switched from spring blossoms to double rejuv in hopes that i could hit higher hps but today in Heroic Antorus i was still the lowest healer (sorry no logs from that)
       
      Here are some logs from a guide I've been doing normal with:

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=4&type=summary&source=15
       
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
