Healing spells modifiers

2 posts in this topic

Hello, guys.

I found recently that many times people are confused about their spell choice, not being sure what exactly every healing spell or modifier does. This led me to thought to compile in one place all this information. Hope that it's helpful smile.png

 

HEALING WAVE

Modified by:

Tidal Waves*: reduce cast time of HW by 20%
Unleash Life: Increases healing done by HW by 30%
Unleashed Fury***: Empowers UL, increasing healing done by HW by additional 50%

                             Does not work without Unleash Life
Earth Shield: Increases healing done by HW by 20%

 

HEALING SURGE

Modified by:

Tidal Waves*: increases crit chance of HS by 30%
Unleash Life: Increases healing done by HS by 30%
Unleashed Fury***: Empowers UL, increasing healing done by HS by additional 50%

                             Does not work without Unleash Life
Earth Shield: Increases healing done by HS by 20%

 

CHAIN HEAL**

Modified by:

Riptide on the primary target: Increases healing done by CH by 25%
Unleash Life: Increases healing done by CH by 30%
Earth Shield on the primary target: Increases healing done by CH on this target by 20%

 

RIPTIDE

Modified by:

Unleash Life: Increases healing done by Rt by 30%
Unleashed Fury***: Empowers UL, increasing healing done by Rt by additional 50%

                                  Does not work without Unleash Life
Earth Shield: Increases healing done by Rt by 20%

 

 

* Cause of Tidal Waves effect: Riptide or Chain Heal. 2 charges.

 

** Chain Heal healing modification from High Tide:

TARGET       HEAL W/O High Tide       HEAL W/ High Tide

Primary                     150%                          150%

2nd                            90%                           100%

3rd                             81%                           100%

4th                             73%                           100%

5th w/ Riptide             N/A                           100%

6th w/ Riptide             N/A                           100%

 

*** Unleashed Fury is multiplicative with Unleash Life, giving 130% x 150% = 195% of normal healing amount. This applies to Healing Wave, Healing Surge, and Riptide (both initial and heal-over-time effect).

 

**** Cloudburst Totem does not collect healing from other totems but only from your healing spells: HW, HS, CH, Rt, HR

_________________________________________________

 

TL;DR:

Cast Rt or CH for Tidal Waves

Cast HW (same healing, faster cast) or HS (30% increased crit chance) with Tidal Waves

Cast UL before HS or CH

Always start CH from Riptided target

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.

      I'm a ilevel 870-ish resto druid.
      In order to help my lazy DSPers in M+ man5, I more or less started to dps when there's no healing to do, also to keep me busy.
      The question is rather simple and is in 2 parts:
      1/ I'm using a stupid dot-as-musch-as-possible + solar wrath "rotation" . Is this correct ? the restoration guide is missing a dps section :o). I have the guardian affinity, I find the dps bonus in boomkin affinity way too low for the trouble. Switching forms costs one GCD which I find deadly in M++
      2/ I usually end up at most with something around 140k DPs on some packs, more likely to be around 90K dps average, maybe 60Kdps on boss fights... Anyone has some reasonable DPS target available or want to share their experience ? I'm no elite so I cannot pull off elite magic stuff but I'd still be interested in anyone feedback on that subject.
       
      Note: I'm no elite player in the sense that I probably will never be able to switch to cat form to do some melee dps, way too dangerous for  me :o)
      Note2: I cannot exactly remember but I think I can raise up to 250 Kdps but that means that no healing is required, which does not happen in M+
