Help and tips about lack of HPS

3 posts in this topic

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.

There is only so much healing to be done. Unless you feel your HPS is costing your guild / raid group fights... I wouldn't stress about it too much.

I am about the same item level (a little lower actually), and there are some fights I will pull 1.3 million HPS, and others where I will barely crack 400k HPS. It depends on the fight, the other healers, how much the raid group is derping on mechanics, how good your tanks are with active mitigation...

But if it really worries you, try to figure out what your play style is and whether your secondary stats reflect that.

People put a little too much faith in stat priorities, but they are based very much on assumptions not just about your play style, but also the play style of your party/raid members.

In terms of stuff you can control, for example, mastery is not going to be as strong if your play style means you are not keeping HoTs up on the targets you spam heal. If in doubt, try balancing out your secondary stats (except versatility - unless you are deliberately trying to weave high DPS in without going full Catweaver), and then experimenting a bit to see which stat increases help the most.

You can of course try simulating, but once again, this might not reflect your play style, and might not account for the dynamics of your party/raid group.

A few tips from your Garothi kill:

  • You don't touch Innervate - why?
  • You take Flourish as your level 100 talent, but you only use it 60% of the possible times. You should be using it more often.
  • You spend so much time just doing nothing. I understand that Druid healing is somewhat passive, but doing nothing for nearly 50% of the fight means something is wrong. If there is nothing to heal, your group needs less healers. If you can't change the number of healers, swap to cat form and start to DPS a bit. You can't just be AFKing nearly half the fight.
  • A similar point on your Level 75 choice - your group has too much healing from other locations. You are barely getting any use out of cultivation, only around 2% rather than the normal 7-10%.
  • If you're ending a fight with nearly half your mana left, either the content is too easy or you can heal more. Throw out faster, more expensive heals. Try to end the fight with less mana. You could be spamming Regrowth, especially since you never use Innervate.

Hope this helps a bit.

Simming is useless for healers.

      restoration druid nerfs 8.1

      I saw on Wowhead that Restro druids are receiving a nerf to  Tranquility : Heals all allies within 40 yards for [(41%37% of Spell power) * 5] over 8 sec. Each heal heals the target for another 16 over 8 sec, stacking.
      Healing increased by 100% when not in a raid.

      I feel like its not necssary and are going to effect my healing in a bad way duh. (Nerfs normally do.) But as it is right now im far behind Mistweaver munks and every priest spec. 
      My Tranquility is my second higest if not the higest healing abillity i have (Thats what Details Tells me.) 

      And im unsure how the Autumn leaves changes is gonna effect me, wheter or not its for the better or worse.

      What do you guys think?

      This is my first post please no roast 👶

      Any opinion on the Azerite gear with "Flesh rending"?
      I tried it and although it makes you add "Thrash" to your rotation, all your shreds now deal 926 more dmg, which brings Shred from 2090 dmg (2508 on bleeding targets) to 3016 (+20% on bleeding targets). My dps went up quite a lot since I took this Azerite talent.
      Although it is mentionned in the Icy Veins "Azerite Traits" page on the Feral DPS section, it does not appear on the Azerite Trait Chart, showing how much % it brings to you dps compared to other traits. I haven't seen any Youtube Feral Player mention it in their video either.
      I wonder if it would be worth it to change some feral talents for something that allows to cast more shreds (like Moment of clarity, etc.. 
      Try it. It's worth it. It might be our savior.
      Any opinion on this?
