Resto Druid in of HELP!

10 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I need some help!  My HPS seems a bit low, and I need some advice on how to up my healing.  My role in raids is to focus on the tank/off tank  and raid heal as I can.  I've taken up this role for two reasons: I am the most consistent healer, being that I am almost always there, and two, because my BF is the main tank, and since we live together, it's easier for us to coordinate cool downs between us.

My ilvl is currently 890, I have two legendaries, and my artifact is maxed.  I do have two other legendaries in my bags, but they are the neck putting me in my own little bubble, and the pvp ring.  Below are my current stats.

I realize I use RegrowthRegrowth more than I should, but it generally is my "OH SHIT" button.

What can I change to up my healing and help the raid?

Armory: Clementie

HPS: Raid Night

Hey =)


I can se one thing asap u can do to make ur healing better/higher. When u go tank healing u should always go Germination so u can apply two Rejuvenation to the same target. That is like rule nr 1 for tank healing as druid.

Two things that might help your HPS go up is if you make sure to keep lifebloom always up and use your cenarion ward on cooldown. That will add to extra hot's to your target which will increase the healing you do to them by around 20% because of your mastery. also if you have at least your two piece set bonus you will want to use wild growth a lot more to gain the extra 4k mastery which will increase your hps quite a bit. Also like manne82 said you should take germination so you can have two rejuv on the same target which will also help increase your hps due to your mastery. you should also use swiftmend more often as it is a large heal when you have multiple hots on someone

Also since you have the dark titans embrace equipped you should always be keeping life bloom up since that legendary gives it a chance to heal for its final healing ammount.

Looks like you are doing better! one thing you can try instead of using regrowth as often is having two rejuv's on your tank and using swiftmend when you can.

One suggestion I could make is that you should try and drop some of that haste to favor more mastery, your mastery gains value the more hots you have on a person, if you keep lifebloom, cenarion ward, 2x rejuvs each heal is gaining for your mastery. Realistically keeping those up and casting regrowth only when you have clearcasting procs your tanks should be alright. Also if you refresh lifebloom when it is below i believe 30% duration it will bloom early which is where the biggest heal on it comes from. So you can recast it strategically so it blooms when the tank actually needs healing rather than just at the end of its duration, alot of times lifebloom ends up overhealing anyways, especially with dark titans. Also let your hots work on the tanks, they do not have to be at 100% life all of the time, unless there is a hard hitting boss ability coming up you shouldn't really have to spam regrowth to bring them to full life, that should be a last resort if you aren't able to make lifebloom bloom, use a swiftmend, pop essence of ghanir. Sorry for rambling but if you are running flourish you should try to ALWAYS flourish with cenarion ward applied to the tank since it is our strongest hot.

Thank you all, I will work on trending a bit more towards Mastery and working on this new strat.  I really appreciate all the feedback.

A couple of things I'd add
Firstly a bit of context, Druids aren't really the 'best' tank healers, their heals are more suited to raid healing (that's not to say you can't do it, just that your spells aren't as efficient for this role as Pally or Shammy for example)

So therefore if your role is keep the tanks alive and you are keeping the tanks alive then you are doing your job and I wouldn't worry too much about hps :)

That said here's a few things that might help

1. Aim to reduce haste to around 20% while increasing your mastery - start by replacing the neck enchant with Mark of the Trained Soldier. 
For stat weighting maybe install Pawn Addon and use the Resto template there.

2. Use Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus rather than the boots, as the neck gives you free heals (ie uses no mana) and keeps you alive longer, less need to heal yourself means more time to heal others :) The boot's bonus doesn't really add that much healing tbh.

3. Feral affinity isn't really that useful as there are few fights in Nighthold where you have to move quickly, I'd recommend Guardian Affinity as this will reduce damage taking meaning less time needed to heal yourself

4. Look to get the 4 set tier bonus as the free rejuvenations are useful (it might even be worth using raid finder gear for this)

5. Try the synergy between tier 1 prosperity and tier 5 Soul of The Forest using the following rotation
Swiftmend (Tank) - Wild Growth (tank) - Flourish 
or if tank is really low 
Swiftmend (Tank) - Regrowth - Essence of G'hanir

6- Use Essence of G'hanir more often - you can save it for 'oh crap' moments but using on cooldown may be more efficient especially if you have lots of DOTs up at the time

Hope this helps :)

      I was recently asked to start playing enhance for my guild. So nothing else to do than grabbing the good ol' hammers and start swinging. I've read the guides here on IV, watched a few videos on Youtube and been on and off on the enhance discord.  I thought I got the hang of it, felt pretty comfortabel doing a few bosses but when I skimmed through  our loggs from a few of the bosses I noticed that my preformance is more or less  garbage.
      I decided to test my luck here. I was hoping that someone could analyze my loggs and give me a few pointers on what and what not to do.
      I would also appreciate  a few tips and trix about how to start analyzing my preformance myself so I dont have to turn back here as soon as the RNG gods are not with me.
      Here is the log I was refering to:
      And here is my armoy:
      In advance I apologize for any misspelling and other nonsense that might confuse you. I should point out that English is not my main language.
      If you need any other basic information in order to help me just give me a shout and I will comply.

      Hi, i have just tried out some Antorus bosses in mythic and i saw, that my logs are so.... 
      In heroic difficulty my logs are better. So I have no idea, what am I doing wrong there... As I am doing the same thing, only with a bit more tactics...
      Can anybody give some tips, on this matter?

      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build. 
      Thanks already for helping / reading!
      P.s. i have all legendary's

      First off, I absolutely adore this class and especially the brewmaster theme, but I'm just not making good use of it. I'm also not very good or knowledgable at it, so please excuse my stupidity in this ramble :P
      With other tanks, I always feel like I'm in control. I have abilities that easily gather all enemies to me, but it's so different with the monk. If we're not counting the artifact weapon's special ability (since you spend at least 98 levels without it), I basically have a single proper AoE attack, being the Keg Smash. Compared to other tanks' abilites like Thunder Clap, Blood Boil, etc., I feel like Keg Smash is absolutely terrible. It has a much smaller radius, so I always have to run around and try to herd groups into tight bunches before I can effect all of them. If I'm completely surrounded by enemies within melee range, I feel like I'm lucky if I hit even a third of them with the splash, and so often I have to run around and tag drifters with melee attacks. I'm really jealous of the other classes' spells that are centered on the caster or placeable.
      Am I doing something wrong, or is this a common problem? I know I have the Provoke ability as well, but being a single target spell with an 8 second cooldown, it doesn't really help my problem much. I really want to make my monk work, but I feel completely at a loss in dungeons and raids sometimes, and I always fall back to my prot paladin just because I feel like I'm doing an awful job with my monk.
      Pleeease show me how I'm being an idiot and how the brewmaster is actually a competent tank!
