Hi to all shaman-forum residents, nice to meet you. I'm Redd, a fire mage. Why is that important? It's the only class I really know anything about. Why is that a problem you ask? Well, I've set up a casual guild a few months ago and we starting raiding a bit. On a casual level. However, my knowledge about most classes is well below par so I'm not exactly your perfect RL.
I have done quite a bit of research in hopes of being able to give him tips based on that, but as I've never even touched a healer, it's pretty hard to make good calls and be confident about my suggestions.
On to the matter at hand: Our resto shaman. He's been with us for quite a while and we love having him as a raider. However, his performance changes quite a bit from night to night, and from boss to boss. Basically, he goes from around 20k Hps to around 40k-45k on different nights.
The bottomline of the issue:
Is it possible for Shaman healers to perform very differently on varying bosses?
Next to that, as I'm accustomed to people wanting that, I have quite a few logs from the last few nights online. It would be absolutely awesome if you guys can look over his performance in general (not necessarily on a specific pull) and give me your verdict. Any tips I get I can pass on to him in hopes of improving or stabilizing his HPS would be immensely welcome.
Please do keep in mind that we're pretty casual. We like doing normal modes, but that's challenging enough for us. I don't expect our shaman healer (or anyone in our group) to perform on a 'top10 eu rank' level. As a last sidenote: Our last raid (friday march 1) was awful. We had pugs, a few trial members... it was just a train-wreck all over the place. We ended up deciding not to 'waste' our 3/6 lock and called it early.
Thanks a million in advance.
A completely lost "RL".
I'm not singling out our shaman healer. I'll be making a few of these topics where needed, and will be judging the rest as well. Including myself!
