[Resto] Help improving my HPS

5 posts in this topic


I think I am doing something seriously wrong with my resto druid. I have pretty decent gear but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS then me on my recount meter. I've run simulations that said i should be getting 900hps but that's rather rare to see. During M+ runs when we're taking high damage i've seen 1-1.2mil hps - but in Antorus I feel like I'm stuck at 400-600hps


Recently I've gone up 20 item levels and gotten 3 T21 pieces but haven't seen my hps improve much. I've switched from spring blossoms to double rejuv in hopes that i could hit higher hps but today in Heroic Antorus i was still the lowest healer (sorry no logs from that)


Here are some logs from a guide I've been doing normal with:




Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

You can use wowanalyzer wich is a well made tool :)


As you can see on this fight :

- You didn't use your trinket, use it or consider using another trinket who suits you better.

- Use flourish more often it's a powerfull spell and mana saver

- Try to change legendaries asap

- cast more wild growth

- Try to use essence of ghanir after a wild growth, with a lot of rejuvs running (flourish is good to keep lots of rejuvs running)

- your ring is missing an enchant ^^

Mana issue :

- Use innervate more effectively (track it with weak auras and cast everything you can in it)

- Use a mana potion, or a mana trinket


Try to work with your burst heal outside tranq, throw a lot of rejuv, cast flourish, cast wildgrowth then ghanir

Thanks for the reply. That's a cool tool I will use it going forward. 

I recently replaced the crappy boots with Edraith, Bonds of AglayaEdraith, Bonds of Aglaya but I can't say I've seen much of a difference, they're both pretty subpar. Let's hope the RNG is nicer with the next legendary. I think i must have gotten that ring in the run, thats the only reason I can think it wasn't enchanted and even then that's not a great excuse since I'm an enchanter lol


I think I've been using Essence of G'hanir wrong, so hopefully knowing this will help. 


Mana potion is a great idea, I run out of mana on some fights, idk why I didn't think of that before. Thanks again for the suggestions and the link to the tool.

Your major issue as well is your weap. Your using 820 relics from what i can see. a huge portion of your int comes from your weap. your logs show 942 ilvl, but your weapon is really holding you back from really living up to that ilvl. your weapon is only 1o lvls higher then your overall ilvl. get that up and not only will it boost your overall ilvl. the int boost will be huge, increasing your overall heals. even putting in 910 relics from the vindicare will see your weapon jump massively.

I'm sending you a log with comparison to myself on the same fight when I was the same ilvl with only 2set T21, so you can check out the difference between spells. 

While Spring blossoms is a good option on Varimathras specifically, I personally don't recommend it on other fights, as I make more use of the 2 min CD on Tranquility, but we have to consider that I am using the Velen legendary trinket that goes with it. 
Also, the 4set from T21 made a bigger impact on my HPS (generally), but the most important thing is that you have to be using WIld Growth frequently to proc it.

The Varimathras fight is a great boss to give examples on, so to give you an idea on how I start the fight.. Prehot the tank, when we pull, I use Wild Growth and 2-3 Rejuvs, then I pop Innervation and put Rejuvs mostly on the whole raid - depends on the number of people, but I keep looking at the duration of the first one that I used and when it's like 6 seconds before expiring, I use Wild Growth again, then use Flourish and Essence of G'Hanir. Since you used Innervation for most of the Rejuvenations, it saves a lot of mana and you do a ton of healing, which pretty much saves you a tranquility. 
You can apply this to other bosses as well, Kingaroth comes to mind - when the adds spawn and the whole raid is taking damage. 

It's not a good thing to use Innervation only when you are already out of mana. You can prevent yourself from being low on mana by using it when you are expecting a lot of raid wide damage and need to hot the raid. (Not sure if the log is showing it correctly, but I see you did pop Innervate after 1 min of the fight, yet didn't really make use of it)

Also I'd recommend using The cenarion ward instead of prosperity in raids, since it does more healing than swiftmend and benefits from your mastery as well, not to mention it is 2/3  of the mana cost of swiftmend.

I wish you good luck to get a better legendary then the wrists, which probably cause you to use prosperity, although I'm not sure whether it is beneficial. And make proper use of the ring by using more Wild Growth :-)

I hope I helped you a little at least :-)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.

      Hello everyone,
      I want to ask for any tips on my logs, since I think I'm doing something wrong with my resto druid.
      I have good gear (currently 958 ilvl) but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS than me on the logs. I think I should be doing more than 900/1k hps, but rarely go above 700 in many fights.
      Here are a couple of logs of Antorus hc:
      I searched the logs and I think one of my main problems for the lack of healing is the rejuvenations. Other druids do far more healing with same or less rejuvs, since my average casts is around 450k (and other druids go up to 750 or even 1000).
      I don't know if it's a problem with timing or overhealing (other healers snipping me), but I want to know other opinions.
      Thanks a lot for your help.
