0 / 31 / 30 - Feedback desired
Return to board index
I'm looking to get feedback on the recent respec of one of my guildies. He came to the guild as Resto, but decided that he needed to do more damage, so he went 0 / 31 / 30.
While I understand his intentions, it appears to me that his follow through ended up lacking. In my eyes, it appears that all he has done is gimped his healing by large amounts for very mediocre melee DPS, even disregarding gear loadout of any sort.
I'm not a great theorycrafter or any sort, so would appreciate general feedback on the positives and negatives of his spec.
As a note to those attempting a troll, yes, my own shaman can use a lot of improvement.
Thank you in advance, folks.
I guess it mostly depends on what his role is. Is he trying to heal in raids? PvP? 5 mans? Raid dps (I hope not :)? Questing? Grinding?
Well, I'm just a 47 enh shaman myself but from what I can see I'm not sure flurry would be of much use to him with 2h...? I think your first assessment is right in that he gimped his healing for dps that's lacking.
Typically if he wanted to increase damage while still doing decent healing, elemental spec with resto is the way to go, something like this:
Although, I'm skeptical about resto builds without the healing focus stuff in there. Still, that hybrid spec would allow for good dps while combining the typical combos of nature's swiftness and elemental mastery.
Thanks, guys. I wanted to see if there was something I was just completely oblivious to.
We brought him in as a healer, so I may have to request that he return as such.
Myomer: Ele / Resto is nice, and how I have my shaman specced presently (40 / 0 / 21). Good DPS, decent pickup heals when needed or if someone face plants.
40/0/21 can easily build into decent spot healing as needed, though due to high crit % it works better for spot heals and not main healing.
Yeah, if he's trying to be a primary healer, there is no reason for him to be doing any damage at all. But like was posted above, if he isn't mostly healing there is a lot of good synergy between the ele and resto trees and I would have him put more points into the ele tree like 40/0/21. That will crit your spot heals a lot, but it's not very mana efficient at all trying to do sustained healing.
