HELP! Resto ilvl 904

Hi all,

I am new to healing and playing a shaman. I pretty much only ever played a rogue Wrath-Cata, and have recently come back as a Resto Shaman in Legion. I am doing my best to configure everything correctly but I think that I am missing some stuff. My logs show that I am under preforming (bottom 35% of resto shams in my ilvl range). I am looking for any sort of constructive criticism and advice that anyone may have.

I currently sit at 45 artifact traits, 46.2k intel, 35% crit, 12% haste, and 86% mastery.

Talents: 5937800c71a45_icyhelptalents.thumb.PNG.a3e904674ed02c3908028d5e051e1325.PNG

If possible I would love to not have to use CBT. If it's the best though, it's the best.

I am stressing over not being able to keep up with my guilds progression, if you see anything that I need to correct or work on please comment.

Thanks in advance,

Rog

Hi there, I might be able to give you some pointers that I can see is not great in here!

So let's start with stats which is the obvious improvement, your mastery is way too low. You want to stay above 100% mastery, I've got 111% and I'm looking for more. It's fine to throw the secondary into crit seeing as you seem to prefer the Chain Heal style of play but 35% is extremely high and not at all needed.

As for talents you should never use Deluge, it's not even close to Ancestral Guidance and AG have an incredible synergy with both Cloudburst and Gift of the Queen. You mention you'd like to avoid using CBT but while being used correctly it becomes 7-10% of your entire healing which is quite a bit. That being said, when we move on to t20 you lose the set bonus that let's you have higher uptime on Healing Stream Totem so Echoes could come back as a good option again BUT, a new legendary allows us to get both talents which is going to be our best legendary for sure so I'd advice learning to use CBT optimally and here is a fantastic guide to reach that goal:
https://chainheal.com/resto-shaman-guide-on-how-to-maximize-cloudburst-totem-cbt/

If you use Chain Heal more often than Wave and Surge I would advice against using the talent Undulation since the Torrents will benefit you more or even the Unleash Life into a crit Chain Heal is better. Undulation is difficult to maximize and doesn't fit the Chain Heal style of play.

Next is your synergy, you should be aware that Healing Tide Totem does not feed into your CBT (Totems heals are not from your cahracter and thus not counted as "your healing"), and shouldn't be combined. You either pop the CBT and use your chain heal potential to feed it up and wait to use Healing Tide when other things are on CD.
You should pop the CBT as you end the cast of a spell like Healing Rain, Surge or Chain Heal as it will count as well but that is explained more in detail in the link above.

Legendaries:
I'm assuming you don't have many yet since the Gloves and Neck are not great compared to your options.
BiS right now for NH for most shamans is Velen Trinket and the Shaladrassil healing legs. The Velen trinket synergies extremely well with Healing Tide Totem since it overheals a lot. The legs actually feeds into your CBT as well as works with Ancestran Guidance in addition to great stats.

Hope this helps, I am however not a chain healer myself and I use Ascendance with a more haste/CD type of play but most of the points above apply for both styles of shaman healing!

Arkpit, thank you for your suggestions. I am definitely going to follow your advice on the talents and work on learning how to master CBT with the guide you linked.

 

My gratitude,

Rog

Btw when looking for alternative upgrades for better stats, don't be afraid of versatility if it's an item that provides a lot of mastery since Mastery is incredibly important to us and versatility is raw healing output which isn't all that bad to be honest, mines around 6%.

I've got 110% Mastery, 18% Crit, 16% Haste, 6% Vers.

Best of luck!

      Blooded is an established  social Mythic guild, with a friendly and dedicated team.
      Blooded has been raiding as a team since the early history of the guild, we focus on progression but make sure we also have room for good fun and friendly bantering. Though the team over the years has seen some changes, it has a good and solid core of players that provides a solid foundation to build on. 
      Everyone in the guild is equally respected, regardless of rank. No one is more important and we don't like drama. Bad attitude in /g or /ra is not tolerated. 
      Bad jokes is however a completely different matter.
      Our current progression is 4/9 ToS Mythic, before that we did 7/7 M EN, 2/3 M ToV, and 7/10 M NH.
      We are now looking for like minded players, willing to progress at a good pace with our team.
      Requirements for ToS:
      You need to have some ToS experience, but no need for Mythic experience.  Your gear needs to match your experience (min ilvl 925) Your gear has all the best gems/enchants. You're available for 75% of all raids. You feel ready and have the patience to deal with progression. You keep on top of news about your class/spec, and upcoming fights. Spots are open for:
      1 solid melee DPS (Rogue/warrior/DH/Ret) 1 Solid Ranged DPS (Warlock/Frost mage/SP) Other classes/specs are still considered if the requirements are fulfilled. (No Tanks/Healers)
      Raid times are:
      Thursday: 20:00 - 23:00 Sunday: 20:00 - 23:00 Tuesday: 20:00 - 23:00 Alt run on Wednesdays. We currently don't do Heroic on the official raid days. Trial information:
      We run a trial for 6 raids We use personal loot, unwanted/unneeded loot is gathered and distributed using RClootcouncil. Invites start at 19:45 Bring plenty food, pots, flasks, runes and be repaired. We use Teamspeak during raids.   If you're looking for a friendly guild with good raid focus, this may be the place for you. As long as you also have time for memes.
      If you're interested add me for a chat.

      [H] Salvation (est.2007) is a progression raiding guild on US-Cenarion Circle/Sisters of Elune.
      Objective
      Salvation is actively searching and recruiting players for current heroic content. What we look to do in the short-term is recruit players and gear them in our farm content. Mythic + will be run as well since it serves as another outlet to gearing up. By doing this we prepare them for our long-term goal, Mythic Mode Progression.
      Recruiting for Tomb of Sargeras
      Tanks- Blood DK x1 Melee- Rogue x1, Havoc Demon Hunter x1 Ranged- Mages x1, Hunter x2, Warlock x1, Balance Druid x1 Healers- Resto/Ele Shaman x1, Holy Paladin x1

      ***Exceptional applicants can feel free to sign up even if we aren't recruiting your class/spec. Outstanding applications will always be considered.
      We are also accepting players that engage in social aspects of the WoW community such as leveling, PvP, questing, dungeon finding, roleplaying and other challenging activites. We provide monthly guild events. For example, the Tournament of Tiny Champions. It’s a pet battle tournament where guildies compete with each other using 3-6 of their mightiest level 25 tiny champions. We are expanding this extremely fun side of Salvation so that everyone can join in on some action and prizes!
      Raiding Schedule
      Our schedule is as follows. We push content three times a week for 3 hours at a time starting at 6:00pm to 9:00pm PST Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Mondays. 
      Our Raiding Requirements
      You must be able to raid all three nights. Be on time for raid. Lateness will not be tolerated. Be able to play the optimal specialization for Legion raid encounters. (this requirement is more towards the pure dps classes and hybrid classes in some special cases) Come prepared with the knowledge of the Legion raid bosses and mechanics. Have Discord app installed and a working microphone to communicate. Discord browser and phone app is also acceptable. (Note: Some of these requirements will change as time goes on.)

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.
