    Default Resto Druid 4.0.whatever they add on

    Hey guys i've been tinkering with new builds for Patch day and Cata builds for a while now and for those of you unsure about what you're gonna do without your lovely treeforms heres a nice little site to help you on your way.

    I've decided on a variation of the 3rd build here taking the point in remove magic as will be more than beneficial when theres not another class that can do this. Also Mana should not be a problem as i personally cant get below 38k in 5 man hcs at the minute.

    Hi Doom. Did 9/12 bosses in LNICC healing on Ermintrudie(who has virtually no T10 gear) I used the second restro build from [url]http://treebarkjacket.com/patch-4-0-guide/[/url] i did have some mana issues in the upper spire, along with Sid on his pally, but overall things went quite smoothly. Its difficult unlearning a rotation.

    I also very rarely went into treeform kept forgetting.

    But i think mana may be an issue in longer fights, off to find some more spirit gear.

    All healers now have a selection of very mana efficient spells. The idea behind this is that you will have healers using these and the raids health will slowly trickle down. As it goes down you will reach a point where you then want it to go back up, at which point you throw in a few of the less mana efficient spells with higher throughput.

    From the point of view of a druid I know that nourish and lifebloom are very efficient, especially lifebloom due to talents. Regrowth seems to be your fast heal, and healing touch is still the slow heal bomb. Rejuv and wild growth fill much the same role.

    The general strat seems to be that you MUST always have at least 1 fully stacked lifebloom going. If you aren't having revitalize proc every 6 seconds you will have mana problems. It's worth noting that lifebloom no longer gives mana when it blooms, it's just a cheap spell now. This means it's no longer your go-to spell for clearcast procs. Spend these on something expensive. A 3 stack lifebloom costs about the same as a single rejuv. You will probably want to keep lifebloom rolling on multiple targets as once lifebloom is up it only costs 1 spell to keep that 3 stack going and is only marginally shorter in duration that rejuv.

    Swiftmend is amazing, swiftmend the tank on cooldown.

    Wild growth is also amazing, but don't use it if you don't need it to heal people back up. Wild growth is probably a better first spell to apply than rejuv now. Only rejuv people that aren't sorted with wild growth. If everyone has a rejuv, don't wild growth unless they're dropping fast.

    Innervate MUST be kept on cooldown. A superb strategy if you have 2 druids in the raid is for them to both glyph innervate, and innervate each other. This will give each druid 1.5 innervates per cooldown. Even if you're the only druid, it's still a great glyph as you have to think about healer mana as a whole now, rather than just your own.

    I'm probably going to respec to [URL="http://cata.wowhead.com/talent#00oZcZrczIuc0uoGo:cVmbVmzc0"]http://cata.wowhead.com/talent#00oZcZrczIuc0uoGo:cVmbVmzc0[/URL] when i'm next on. This is assuming I fill a raid healer spot in raids anyway. Druids are now excellent tank healers as well.


    A final note regarding healing. Perhaps consider going back to having assigned groups for each raid healer. Due to the much shorter duration of hots if everyone is taking damage you can no longer blanket hot anywhere near as many people. The trade off here is that the hots you do have up seem to have a much higher throughput.

    Just keep in mind that you can only apply Lifebloom to 1 person when you are not in treecow form. Best to keep it on the tank, but you can spam it in treecow.

    I never went OOM at any time in LNICC just came close a few times.

    Default Resto Druid Build 4.01 Revised

    Ok so this is my final build for 4.01

    [url]http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-talents.xml?r=Steamwheedle+Cartel&cn=Doomcluck&gro up=2[/url]

    We seem to be the most overpowered healing class at the minute the numbers in raids speak for themselves

    I decided not to take empowered touch as some time letting lifebloom drop off kicks in a massive crit heal, plus its so quick to reapply. Also revitalise procs quite a lot so was no need to go 3/3 in it plus with some of the classes crazy mana regen its not a massive difference (except Holy Paladins whose mp5 sucks).

    For some reason armoury is not showing my prime glyphs but Glyph of Swiftmend, Glyph of Rejuvenation and Glyph of Lifebloom are ones i'm currently using (I think not online so may re-edit).

    Haste

    1015 is the current target for Rest Druids and 1400 ish been hard cap if i remember correctly so gemwise Reckless ametrine is your best friend even though i've been a scrub and stuck a few Quick kings amber in just to reach the 1015 mark. [url]http://www.wowhead.com/item=51407[/url] is virtually a free off-hand at the minute only costing 70 honor from goblin in sewer in Dalaran plus the former boomkin idol [url]http://www.wowhead.com/item=50457[/url] is slightly better than [url]http://www.wowhead.com/item=50454[/url] due to the haste as the mp5/spirit does not make a vast difference to us as we regen mana so quickly at lvl 80.

    Gear /sigh

    4 piece T10 is a must as the set bonus is great ,think of it as a free heal you dont even have to cast yourself. Plus its so easy to gear a character now there is no reason why everyone should not be properly kitted out

    And remember we wear leather not cloth like those Dirty little shield monkeys i mean Priests He He. No seriously vendor your cloth stuff as soon as possible its of no use
    and effects our Leather Specialisation (check passives in spellbook).

    Healing Stratagies

    This one's simple, practice on healing self for 5 minutes especially getting used to using Efflorescence (Yes the big green circle thing which is still see melee running out of)

    Lifebloom tank (if he's picking a mob up hold off for few secs healing aggro is silly atm)
    Rejuv at this point swiftmend becomes available so you can use efflo is they melee taking a lot of damage (looks at warrior and pallies)
    Then if needed Regrowth Rinse and repeat.

    This is only a rough guide i mainly spend most of my time Rejuvenating as most guys out there pretty tough and can play.

    Anyhoo enough from me Happy Healing

    Default Lvl 85 Resto Druid

    Hai Guys


    So what new well Big dragons broken loose we got to kill him or find a way of stopping him and our spells hate us. Well not too much, the biggest thing since we hit 85 is that our spell heal for roughly the same but cost a hell of a lot more mana.

    Solution:-

    SPIRIT its your bestest buddy in the whole wide world if you are haste capped (1015) and the piece of equipment has no spirit on it then REFORGE it. Usually reforging the mastery as mastery is only any good if you have a heal on the target already, which 9 times out of 10 is the tank or ocasionally one of the dps who just had a major brain fart.

    Ok build time

    [url]http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/steamwheedle-cartel/doomcluck/talent/primary[/url]

    I've changed a few things around for example i took a point out of [url]http://www.wowhead.com/spell=17059[/url] and lost points in [url]http://www.wowhead.com/spell=17074[/url] to put into [url]http://www.wowhead.com/spell=16845[/url] . The reason well its obvious mana conservation ,my spells cost me less.

    Also dont forget to watch for your omen of clarity proccing as it means a mana free heal.

    Gems well you should go for Intellect gems as that is Main Stat for us as Oztree reminded me spirit and hast should come from gear

    A couple of trinkets to watch out for as well Rainsong [url]http://www.wowhead.com/spell=91142[/url] this is very good because when it procs it enables the 9th tick on wildgrowth which is very nice.
    And the second one is [url]http://www.wowhead.com/item=55995[/url] kinda awesome as it gives you loads of lovely spirit on proc.

    Anyway Happy Healing

    In tis the best stat for resto druids stack int above all else, int trinkets, in gems, int everything. When it comes to gear take spirit/haste above anything else.
