Post-Patch Observations

The dust has settled and we’re getting used to the new normal. Gillir healed a guild run in Heroic Shadow Labs. Healing is 1022 now (was around 1900 pre-patch). I kept with the traditional rotation of stacking Lifebloom, but would throw in a Wild Growth when there was splash damage. I’m still getting a handle on where W.G. fits in: should it be part of a rotation or purely situational? Here are my numbers from WWS (which is a little wonky because it hasn’t been updated yet): (we one-shotted Blackheart instead of the 15 tries listed).

As you can see, Lifebloom made up half of my healing, so that’s pretty much the same as pre-patch. WIld Growth averaged for 353 a tick, a little more than Lifebloom at 318. Living Seed averaged for 1350. Glyph of Rejuvenation averaged for 606 (I should be more mindful of using Rejuv when the target is below 50%.) Moving at normal speed in tree is nice (especially in a fight like Blackheart where folks get out of range a lot). Having roots as a CC indoors=awesome. And Revive: we had two druids and no other rezzes and being able to OOC rez helped out so much, thank you, Blizz! So, my first healing after the patch went quite well.

I got some time to try the hunter out too: I am really enjoying the changes. She’s running with a chimera (named Smaug, I’ll have a screenshot up later). A Cunning pet, which I am liking, DPS looks good, although I do need to get the kitty back out and see how the changes are working for him. No Tenacity pet: BRK is making a strong case for a gorilla, so I might go with that.

And Tsoai has been stuck in the city powerleveling Inscription: he’s at 347, and since 350 is about as high as you can go now, he can start doing other things and try out the enhancement abilities.
