What talents did you use? Torrent, Graceful Spirit, Lightning Surge Totem, Ancestral Guidance, Earthen Shield Totem, Echo of the Elements, High Tide.

Why did you pick Graceful Spirit? Frequent movement. Frequent enough that Graceful kept Spiritwalkers’ up for when I would move from side to side. I used it pretty much on cooldown.

Why did you pick Earthen Shield Totem? Because of periods of stacked AoE healing when the boss is doing Power Overwhelming. I would drop the totem on the large add, where the biggest cluster of melee’s (and tanks) would be). Just to help them deal with the pulsing damage.

Why Echo of the Elements? Just lots of movement. I actually hearted out after the first pull to pick up this talent.

Can you describe the type of fight?  It is a heavy healer movement encounter. Whenever there is real damage, the raid is in the same place though.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? We held my HTT for a specific moment, so I could only use it once. The boss was doing Power Overwhelming, while orbs were coming from the Nightwell, while the little adds were active (doing AoE damage). That is when I used HTT.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? I used SLT 2 seconds before I popped Healing Tide.

Usage of Ancestral Guidance? I would counter the Power Overwhelmings with AG (the 1st, 4th and 8th). It lines up pretty well with the overall cooldown of AG.

Usage of Spiritwalkers’ Grace? Mostly when the orbs were coming out. There’s one moment when you are slowed, you’re moving from side to side, and there’s orbs coming out at the same time. I popped it at that point so I could keep the tanks alive.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? We moved the boss around, we didn’t keep him on one side.

 

Champls

Guild: Pieces (Draenor – EU) / Current world progress rank of the guild: 35 / World rank of the kill: 26 / World rank mythic Helya: 10 / World rank mythic Xavius: 12 / Raid days: first mythic day 15 hours (split runs), first two weeks 7 days per week at least 5 hours per day / Split runs: 3 / Number of pulls: 5 / Logs: not public / Video of the kill: available / Number of healers used: 4 / Setup: druid, paladin, disc priest, shaman / Set bonus active: none / Legendaries: Prydaz + Tidecallers / Trinkets: Urn 875+S + Map 890.

What talents did you use? Unleash Life, Wind Rush Totem, Lightning Surge Totem, Ancestral Guidance, Ancestral Protection Totem, Cloudburst Totem, High Tide.

Why did you pick Unleash Life? I’m still casting Chain Heals, so this is still my preference.

Why did you pick Wind Rush Totem? For the team! But graceful is also a good pick for yourself.

Why did you pick Ancestral Protection Totem? When we stack up and the boss does AoE, APT’s 10% health is so much better than EST (which is eaten up quickly).

Can you describe the type of fight?  The important parts of the fight is healing off the healing debuff and managing to stay in the AoE phase as long as possible (AoE heal a lot also). And that can be hard if people don’t know how to stack up. Especially as a shaman.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? We used the first one to heal off two applications of Time Release in the first slow phase.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? I definitely should use it when we stack up. But what I think that happened was, we never got in danger of dying during our stack up. So I didn’t end up popping it. You definitely want to use it during Power Overwhelming.

Usage of Ancestral Guidance & Gift of the Queen? During Power Overwhelming is a good time to use it.

Usage of Spiritwalkers’ Grace? There are times when the balls come from the center, and you have to step through. That is a great time to use it. People are probably going to get hit and you can quickly heal them up.

Usage of Windrush Totem? The adds spawn on different sides, I used my Windrush to quickly get to the other side.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? Nothing very exciting, other than the missing SLT, only 1 AG and 2 GotQ *giggles*. The focus is on healing off the healing debuff, and I really struggled with that. So you could go Undulation or Torrent as well if you struggle with that.

 

Dunderz

Guild: Ecology (Kazzak – EU) / Current world progress rank of the guild: 30 / World rank of the kill: 307/ World rank mythic Helya: 22 /  World rank mythic Xavius: 46 (Dragon) / Raid days: first week 7 days per week, 4 hours per day / Split runs: 3 / Number of pulls: 4 / Logs: not public / Video of the kill: not available / Number of healers used: 5 / Setup: druid, druid, monk, paladin, shaman / Legendaries: Prydaz + Jonat / Trinkets: Urn 890 + Map 890 / Set bonus: 4p.

What talents did you use? Torrent, Graceful Spirit, Lightning Surge, Ancestral Guidance, Earthen Shield Totem, Echo of the Elements, High Tide.

Why did you pick Earthen Shield Totem? We weren’t expecting a lot of pulls, so there wasn’t a lot of thought behind my talents. It could have been more effective (twice), but I think I would go APT here instead. There are points in the fight where you would prefer mitigation over throughput. We wiped because we didn’t balance the DPS on each side properly.

Can you describe the type of fight? Adds spawn on two different locations. We split the raid to deal with them. Then you stack back up. The stacking up is not Healing Rain sized. His hitbox is so big, that even melee’s are so spread that they don’t fit into HR. There isn’t consistant damage during the stackuppart. There are a lot of things that keep you on the move and that prevent you from having a constistant stack up.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? We had a rotation. My Healing Tide on the speed up part and the normal phase (not during the slow), so that was pretty nice. We saved Revival for the slow phase, because it is instant.

Usage of Spiritwalkers’ Grace? Mostly on the fly. When we were splitting up, I used it to pad the group during movement. But you can also use it when you get to your side, during dodging.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? I panic-placed SLT at the end.

Usage of Earthen Shield Totem? I put it down, the raid walked out of it.

Usage of Ancestral Guidance? The first AG during the first split (when the mob started pulsating), after that I yolo’d.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? I like Torrent and Echo on this fight. There is a debuff called Time Release. If you don’t heal these up before they explire, they will explode. So Riptide / Echo / Torrent was handy here to snipe those people. My AG could have been better. I shouldn’t have played with EST. HR placement was poor. It was still a yolo fight.

 

Halucinogen

Guild: ScrubBusters (The Maelstrom – EU) / Current world progress rank of the guild: 10 / World rank of the kill: 52 / World rank mythic Helya: 4 / World rank mythic Xavius: 123 (Enraged Revolution) / Raid days: 7 days per week, 5.5 hours per day / Split runs: 4 / Number of pulls: 7 / Logs: not public / Video of the kill: not available / Number of healers used: 4 / Setup: druid, druid, paladin, shaman / Set bonus active: none / Legendaries: Jonat + Tidecallers / Trinkets: Urn 875 + Brine 895.

What talents did you use? Undulation, Graceful Spirit, Lightning Surge Totem, Ancestral Guidance, Earthen Shield Totem, Echo of the Elements, High Tide.

Why did you pick Undulation? Because of Jonat’s.

Why did you pick Earthen Shield Totem? We didn’t really need a ress totem or a cooldown, so I just use this all the time.

Why did you pick Echo of the Elements? It was underwhelming how my CBT performed on the previous kill (one-shots). So I swapped to Echo.

Can you describe the type of fight? It felt like you just take damage when you are killing adds and the boss does AoE. First there is nothing going on, and then there is a LOT of damage. Shaman felt very weak here. Especially during the slow phase, with moving and healing.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? I used it once on the third wave of adds of Temporal Rift Adds (at 3 minutes). That was preplanned.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? Around the same moment as HTT.

Usage of Ancestral Guidance? On the first set of adds, and then at a later point as well.

Usage of Spiritwalkers’ Grace? We had to walk to and from the adds. That’s where you would use SWG.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? I used Healing Surge a lot because of people failing and taking damage from the explosions (not moving away from the circles).

 

Keehn

Guild: Ðanish Terrace (Sylvanas – EU) / Current world progress rank: n/a (veteran main team, raiding in team 2) / Raid days: Wednesday, Sunday, 3.5 hours per day / Split runs: none / Number of pulls: one-shot / Logs: not public / Video of the kill: not available / Number of healers used: 4 / Setup: druid, druid, paladin, shaman / Set bonus active: 2p / Legendaries: Elemental Rebalancers + Roots of Shaladrassil / Trinkets: Brine 880 + Spine 885.

What talents did you use? Undulation, Graceful Spirit, Lightning Surge Totem, Ancestral Guidance, Earthen Shield Totem, Cloudburst Totem, Ascendance.

Is this selection of talents your baseline pick? It is.

Can you describe the type of fight? You move around a lot. You should save your Spiritwalkers’ for when you have to move to the adds or dodge orbs. You don’t take much damage outside of Power Overwhelming. You need to be prepared to single target burst heal when Time Release is placed on people.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem, Spirit Link Totem, Ancestral Guidance, Ascendance, Earthen Shield Totem? All when we were stacked up and taking the Overwhelming hits.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? I was send to the add to interrupt it with three other people, without the rest of the raid. I may have done more with Healing Rain and some other spells had I been at the side with most of the other people. [The Demon Hunter ability] Darkness was used in combination with Spirit Link Totem during Overwhelming attacks.
