New Raiding

Ok so my guild, Is Being Repressed has started raiding again! YAY! And even though I did not go to the first night (as I was not 80 yet), I did go to the second night.

There we attempted the Construct Quarter of 25 man Naxxramas. So I am not going to go through all of the bosses that we did, and if you are curious you can follow the link and look at the different strats for each of the bosses. I found that depending on my healing assignment I could heal a few different ways.

Now I am going to give a little background on my spec and my glyphs. My spec is on the Armory so you can go look under Cusper on Muradin but here it is anyway: Cusper's Spec. The other things that are attributed to my new way of healing are the glyphs that I am currently using. I am currently using:

Glyph of Regrowth
Glyph of Innervate
Glyph of Swiftmend

So while I was healing I noticed a huge difference in the style of my healing as a glyphed Regrowth and with the new spell Nourish.

So my rotation ended up being throw a Lifebloom and Rejuvenation on the tank for some first heals, then cast Regrowth and spam Nourish with some more LBs still in there to get to the 3 stacks. I use grid with colors that change depending on how much time is left on a HoT so I can time my casts so that Regrowth is never off the tank.

And now with the Glyph of Swiftmend I can have some burst healing without having to recast on of my other HoTs. Something to also mention is that Swiftmend can use any Druid's spells not necessarily your own. The other resto druid in my guild, Kelar and I figured that out one day when we both realized that we had probably been Swiftmending each other's spells. So now that they do not consume a HoT, then we both do not have to reapply our spells.

So in a nutshell, I use my instant casts, Rejuv and LB first, then cast Regrowth, LB, Nourish, LB, and continue with each spell when they run out until burst healing is needed then and then I can use Swiftmend, or Nature's Swiftmend, Healing Touch.

So now that I have done my main tank healing spell rotation, the only thing you really need to remember
for raid healing is Wild Growth. You can rejuv and swiftmend for quick heals, but mainly Wild Growth.

So continue questing, and raiding, and have a Delicious Day!

Cusper when I get Finn up to 80 (lord knows when that'll be with my schedule these days) I'm going back to my roots baby! Resto all the way. This is a great concise summary for MT healing and I'll be using it as I run 5s & 10s on Finn.

Good luck in Naxx25! We should be starting on it tonight as well.
