OMG stat weight confuzzlement abounds! (Resto)

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

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Versatility.

1.2. Tank / Mythic+ Healing

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Critical Strike;
  5. 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

Hi,

I think you're overthinking things. Here's an easy mode I use and I think nothing can go wrong with that:

1/ intel is key, especially since patch 7.1.5. Whenever there's intel on an item, favor the ilevel

2/ haste is also important, prioritize this stat, use haste gems

3/ ignore pretty much mastery and crit, take whatever drops that fits 1/ and 2/ If you really have to identical items crit vs mastery, I'd choose mastery, but nothing will go wrong if you pick the crit version (that would be better for 25 man raids). Balancing stat is a viable option.

4/ keep in mind that one bad choosen item does not impact your heals in a significant way, don't stress too much.

 

On a slight different subject, you should stop thinking your problems are everyone's fault. there's no reason that you specifically meet more bad players than anyone else. If you think that way, it prevents you from actually improving because it is sometimes your fault, everyone makes mistake.

Instead try to find solutions, post your raid logs on warcraftlogs, analyse your heals, compare with other better players, ask log analysis here, pandacho will surely help :D

And keep in mind that because of the timer component of Mythics++, rushing is almost the only viable option, so don't expect people playing like in vanilla with sap, sheeps, and other controls. Manage your CD properly, trash hit harder than boss in mythic use your CDs for these packs.

      <Continuum> - [Chamber of Aspects][H] are recruiting!
      Current Progress: 5/11 Mythic Antourus
      We are a close knit and friendly community with an aim to push content. To our members we offer a mature environment, where people from all backgrounds can come together and play.
        We are looking for dedicated and reliable players that want to play the best of their ability and succeed while enjoying the game. We have an active Discord community and chatty members that play various games together! As well as raiders, we also accept social players that just want to play in an active environment with a good atmosphere.
      Looking towards Battle for Azeroth, we will be raiding as soon as possible and aiming for curves and mythic content. We do frequent Mythic+ dungeons as a guild as well as classic raids, older tiers and achievement runs.
      Our Leadership team is made up of many long time players that have extensive experience in all aspects of the game, especially in raiding.
      What we expect from our raiders:
      -Preparation: Know your class / spec well and come to raid prepared with knowledge of tactics and boss abilities - Raid  awareness is important.
      -Attendance: We ask our raiders to be reliable and the ability to have high raid attendance is essential. 
      -Attitude: Be patient, progression raiding can be both time consuming and frustrating. Don't blame people as it won't  really help anyone and be able to admit mistakes.
      Raiders can expect a focused raiding atmosphere, especially during progression content. We show NO favoritism, everyone must perform.
      When applying to the guild your logs will be taken into consideration and a trial period will apply. 
      We use Discord and the ability to listen in raids is mandatory - a working mic is beneficial but not essential. We are an English speaking guild, so a basic knowledge of English is required.
      We are always on the look out for new raiders - all roles and specs are considered!
      (It is an advantage for Healers to have a DPS offspec)

      Raid Schedule:
      Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday - Start 20.00 - Finish 23.00 Server time
      (Grouping at 19.45)
      Optional; Saturday - Start 20.00 - Finish 23.00 Server time
      (Grouping at 19.45)

      <Intergalactic> Alliance-Korgath is recruiting new members!

      Who are we?
      Intergalactic was founded by three friends who became increasingly frustrated with how some guilds operated and treated members. We’ve watched guild masters either get mad and G-kick the whole guild, GM’s never logging in and no one even talking to each other. We’ve been there and it sucks. We wanted not only to have a fun place to hang out with your friends and experience content, but to progress through Raiding. Our roster is a blend of Heroic raiders from other expansions, as well as new and returning players.

      Our Goal
      First and foremost, we are here to have fun. We are currently progressing through Heroic HABT (7/11), What we’re looking for from our Heroic Raiders is the willingness to understand that and have fun in the process. We run our Heroic Raid on Monday and Tuesday nights at 7 pm server. We may run additional content, depending on everyone’s availability. We do run M+ keys, transmog/gear and achievement runs when possible. We use Discord for not only chat, but for communication in raids. A mic is not required, as long as you are able to hear the calls.

      Our Family
      We are an understanding group of members who recognize that life’s priorities take precedent. Not able to attend every event? Work schedule changes? Kids have events you need to attend? We get it. We do try to be as inclusive and understanding as possible to our members. The only thing that we do ask of our members is to have fun, while being respectful of each other. We do have a Code of Conduct that we follow and we ask our new members to try to follow those rules. The short of it …. “Be excellent to each other and be respectful to other members.”

      What are we Looking for?
      We are specifically looking for players to join our Raid groups, understanding that we are not going to one-shot bosses, but are going to have fun as we progress. We do welcome social/casual players, as well.

      Who to Contact:
      GM - Vêl-Korgath
