Hey all -
So as the title says, I'm struggling with healing numbers at the moment in LFR. I completed the Garrosh fight in SoO with ~ 35k hps. One or two people died in there but we managed to get it done without much sweat. My armory link is here:
Sitting at ~ ilvl 500 I was told earlier on that I should be pushing ~100k hps. I know my gear isn't exactly optimised in terms of enchants and reforging. I'm quite low on gold so don't want to be busting on gems and the like on gear that I will be getting rid of shortly. That being said, I doubt it'll alter my stats too much to boost my hps to that level. I do realise that aiming for about ~100k is quite high and I'm not expecting to just hit that number. I've seen other restos hitting ~75k so I reckon that's a more reasonable target. I want to go for a mastery build, so will be switching my gems around accordingly. I don't intend to do higher difficulty raids, perhaps some Flex later on.
IMPORTANT - MY MECHANICS
What am I meant to be doing? I normally earth shield up a tank, then unleash elements before putting a riptide on him right at the pull. I keep healing rain up on the melee as often as I can notice. I drop my hst as often as I notice as well. I think the struggle is at this point, what am I meant to be doing between cooldowns? Should I be popping riptide on other members? I don't think that's the right option since I'll burn my mana fast. Should I be spamming healing wave on the tank? Most of the time a lot of the raid are fairly close to full health. So I don't see a slow chain heal being very productive.
