Resto Shaman help me improve plz - updated logs for BRF

Recommended Posts

Would appreciate some log review and feedback on our recent 6/10 Heroic BRF run last night 



Now please dont look at the Kromog fight - you can but, for whatever reason my laptop hates this fight. I always lag heavily resulting in stupid deaths to things I cant move from when my screen freezes. This fight was the worst its ever been. Ended up changing my settings to Fair instead of Good and the rest of the night went alright. Still random lag, I think I might have to uninstall and reinstall every addon. Never had this problem until a few weeks ago - not the slightest clue what's causing it, my FPS is usually very high. My husband doesnt have a problem at all and we play together. 


You're welcome to look at the day before when we cleared Normal and got 2 H BRF bosses down https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kw3xRM4J2KH7L1Yr#fight=41&type=healing


I just got my 2pc set bonus on Sunday, 1 piece is normal 2nd is heroic. Here is a link to my armory http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/turalyon/Toulip/simple


I really dont seem to have a mana problem, I've gotten really good at using EB all the time so I can honestly CH/HS quite often. My rings and trinkets are the only pieces with Spirit. I was considering rolling on the H/Ma cloak instead of the Spir/Crit cloak. Replaced my Spirit neck with a H/Ma one and I still seemed fine.


Any feedback appreciated. And remember I have to save my HTT for when the RL calls out for it... I know on Maidens last night I could have fit 2-3 in when I only got 1. Least when we run Normal I try to HTT as much as I can. Thx

Week later, more new logs, taking the new EotE talent - yay more SLT!!! 


All normal BRF bosses (4 healers in 20man raid) , 3 H kills (5 healers in 20man raid)  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/V3xMkTNfLz9GKqPb#type=healing&fight=34


All Heroic BRF (5 healers 20man raid) https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/HwzLXYcVJxaZBv79#type=healing&fight=2


I'm starting to get really tired of being on the bottom all the time...Even joked with our Monk tank about wanting to play my Disc priest, but there are so many things I like better about the shaman tho. I think one of my problems is that I'm CH too much and wasting Tidal Waves. I'll RT, then usually UL-CH. I tried this week to pay attention more to use at least more HW when Waves is up instead of overhealing with CH. 


None of the 5 healers really wants to go dps...Had to twist the arm of the druid to go balance for normal. I  think we could 4 heal most of our Heroic kills, but I dont want to offer to go enhance unless asked, I'd rather improve my healing.


Suggestions please on anything.  Sorry I logged out in dps gear, I'll be able to fix armory in 7 hours.

There's literally nothing to say except that you have too many healers in raid - on every fight every healer has more than 50% of overheal.


I had exactly the same issues, being far behind in fights with 5 healers. I was so frustrated that even went to PuG BRF for some tier pieces. Surprise - 3 healers of the same ilvl as mine, no overhealing and I'm always at 1st place with 5-9K hps more than others and 90-92% percentile in rankings. I'm talking here about rankings to show that it wasn't the situation when I was a good healer while the others didn't have a clue. It's just that in a right setup, resto shamans healing is extremely more efficient and counted to the actual heal, not to useless overheal.


What I can say - resto shamans can't shine when there is more healers than a minimum required - sad but true.

You did everything right, using right spells and CDs, but this is the mechanic.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.

      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.

      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!!

      Hi all, long-time lurker, first time poster. So I'm a bit of a new 110 Paladin player and I've been interested in the reason why Justicar's Vengeance is only good for solo content. I've been using it in dungeons and it works like a charm. I'm a bit of a selfish DPS, but I've seen an increase in using it compared to the other two talents in this tier. The reason: Crusade.
      When I run my rotation and Crusade is ready, I build up 5 Holy Power the normal way and then after using Crusade, I use Justicar's Vengeance to spend it all. After that, I use Wake of Ashes for another 5 Holy Power and a second Justicar's Vengeance. At this point I have 10 stacks of the damage/haste buff and it's only taken a few seconds to do.

      I don't really use any of the other talents, so I feel like it'd be a waste to choose them in this tier.

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.
