Restoration Druid 7.1 5 Stat priority

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.

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.

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?

      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.
