Restoration Druid 7.1 5 Stat priority

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hey IV, I made a simple stats calculator stats calculator for wow classic in javascript.
      You select a class, then enter values into the fields for Stamina, Strength, Agility, Intellect and Spirit. As you type it updates the results which show you useful information based on what stats you entered - like dodge, and crit percentages, class-specific statistics like Ranged AP for Hunters and block for Druids in bear form etc. 
      Hopefully people find this useful for comparing item benefits and racial starting stats, or for learning how base stats affect different classes in Classic. Did you know for example that Shamans can build Block with Str items?
      I didn’t just post here to show this off - I need some help with calculating Spirit. Some users have commented that Spirit health/mana regen values are too high for various classes (for example Paladins) and was wondering if anyone here had some more information on this!

      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 👶
