Some Opinions About 2P Tier vs Crit Stacking

So, I am stacking straight crit as resto, which seems to be working well. I was horrified losing over 16% haste after reforging and gem replacement, but anyway. I'm wondering if anyone else is noticing a difference in HPS when using the T16 2P or NOT using it. Reason being, I run Ordos just for Chestguard of Pyrrhic Immolation and I'd like to replace my Tunic of Celestial Harmony for the crit specifically. I look at Recount for information but all of the numbers just confuse the hell out of me. Some of you more progressed raiders maybe could give a new guy some input?

So have you significantly gained HPS since you moved to straight crit?

 

The 2pc is really awesome in my opinion, even if it's a bit dull. The healing it does came 4th on our latest Garrosh kill at around 9% of my total healing done, whereas Ancestral Awakening came in around 1.5%. So I would expect to see a huge loss in HPS if I dropped the 2pc, especially on tank-heavy fights.

Well, it's hard to judge because the other healer is an equally geared druid, and I think we all know how OP they are, but in solo situations, I've noticed a gain. I have to heal a bit more proactively to make up for the cast time but I'm getting 400-500k healing waves instead of barely 200k, chain heals collectively are hitting for about the same. Seems like an increase, but that's my concern, is my ES absorb doing a lot. I've been reading more about it in whatever I can find on Google and I think you're right, it'd be a loss in the end. The mana back from crit is insane, I only dip low on H Protectors, otherwise I'm generally over 40% even in a pinch. But We've only gotten to Galakras so far, very casual guild, so I haven't experienced H IJ or Dark Shamans yet. And, I'm only 568 so there could be a significant difference once I shed some of my normal/warforged pieces.

You're actually higher than I am, and at roughly the same progression as my guild would be if we hadn't had a few important main switches. Anyway, I don't think that 1k Crit should have a difference of over 100% to your direct heals. Do you have logs to back that up?

 

 

I'm interested to see where this goes, as I'm looking to go from Haste (Normal) gear to Crit (Heroic) gear as we progress.

I personally don't keep logs, or however it works... I think someone in the raid does but I've never looked into it. Although, the past few weeks I've been sitting for a lot of the bosses for others to come in, but I could start taking note in the next coming raids to have some kind of idea of the difference between the two.

I did a bit of digging and these appear to be logs from your guild. There aren't any particularly recent ones so I won't analyse them (most recent is 12th December). Ask your guild leader if they upload them still!

      Hello!! This is Starby from Velocity on Sargeras[A]. We're an established guild, that does mythic raiding in the morning/daytime. We're looking to enhance our roster with skilled and reliable players. If you're a mythic raider looking for a fresh start with BFA, and are interested in morning/daytime raiding -- check out Velocity!
      The goal of Velocity is to take down mythic bosses and have fun in the process. We’re searching for like-minded players who are interested in playing at a high level in a laid-back environment. If you can joke around, then focus up when you need to; this is the guild for you. 
      Our main roster is composed of veteran players. Some of us have been playing together for a little over a year. We have a solid core for our dream team – we’re simply looking for a few more to round us out! 
        [A] <Velocity> 6/8M 8/8H

      Raid Times: 10am-1pm CST | Tues/Wed/Thurs 
        Recruitment Needs
      Ranged  – Warlock, Mage
      Melee – Windy Monk, Rogue 
      **** Offspecs are a huge plus!!


      Requirements
      Some Mythic raiding experienced. Being relatively active outside of raid is preferred. Able to focus while joking around, and vica versa.


      Attendance
      We're dedicated and ambitious players, so commitment to our raid times is necessary. We’re interested in consistent players who are realistic about their day-to-day schedule. Raiders have to communicate in the event of tardiness or absences. Schedules change, things come up and real life always comes first. All we ask for is a heads up!

      Trial Period
      Demonstrate teamwork, attendance and play over  6 consecutive "raid days" (two weeks), after an agreed upon start date. 


      What you can Expect from us:
      Dedicated leadership, communication, well defined goals, and a sense of community. Apart from raiding we also run M+ with each other every week.  


      What we expect from you:
      Players who can survive and react to mechanics, while putting up big numbers. Many players struggle to do one, we are looking for both. Apart from this, just be a friendly. It might also be a good idea to bring a sense of humor. 
      If we sound like a good fit, let us know! Go ahead and apply online, leave a reply here and/or send us a tell on BNET/Discord. You could also go old school and send in-game mail to Starby-Sargeras or Foxshine-Sargeras!

      About Us:
      Two Strike Policy is a weekday Mythic hardcore progression guild on US-Sargeras. In our spare time, we run various high Mythic keystones/carries and Heroic Uldir carries. Currently we are recruiting for our BFA Mythic Team. We value camaraderie, communication, preparedness and excellence in each other. Discord is used to communicate during raids.
      Although BFA brings changes to the loot system, we will still be using the updated RCLootCouncil to help distribute loot if it is tradeable or a sidegrade. We expect raiders to be aware of their BIS and ideal gearing setup, and willing to trade where possible to best equip the raid team. The type of people we want would almost JUMP at giving gear to their fellow raid member/team if it is a sidegrade for themselves. Guild repairs, flasks and food are provided to all raiders, including trials.
      Current Progression:
      6/8M Uldir                                                                                                                                                                                                  11/11M Antorus

      Recruitment:
      We are currently recruiting strong applicants of all classes and roles, with the ability to handle calls and criticism like an adult.

      ABOUT US:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 80% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      CURRENTLY:
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 4/8 in Uldir mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!
