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 Earthen Shield Totem? With the debuffs that go out during Annihilation (there can still be DoT’s on the raid), it helps to mitigate that damage while you are moving. The other choices were underwhelming. There was nothing in particular that triggered me to swap from my default EST.

Can you describe the type of fight?  Heavy movement, low damage. You end up focussing on DPS and mechanics as a result. I was actively dealing with scrubbers. During manic phases the boss does Mana Rupture, I would counter that by healing actively.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? During maniac phases.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? The annihilation phase. There is stuff on the ground, stuff coming from the boss, cakes slices being eaten. Then we’re moving and it [SLT] helps to keep people stable as they are running. I would drop it ahead of our path, so I could keep them stable as long as possible.

Usage of Ancestral Guidance? Combined with Spiritwalkers’ Grace and SLT while we were running.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? My cooldown pattern would look something like this: at the start of annihilation SLT +HTT on the first, AG+SWG on the second, HTT on the third again.

What talents did you use? Torrent, Graceful Spirit, Lightning Surge Totem, Ancestral Guidance, Ancestral Protection Totem, Cloudburst Totem, High Tide.

Why did you pick Torrent? I have no idea why I swapped to this. I think because most of this fight we just spend running around and picking up the cakes. So I figured I needed single target healing for the people picking up the cakes.

Why did you pick Ancestral Protection Totem? It is a failsafe. He does the laser, it worked to ress people in heroic, it is possible in mythic as well. It might not always work (twice you max health is the limit-ish, including buffs).

Can you describe the type of fight?  It is a clownish fight. People run all over the place. You fight slightly spread. You just have to heal the priority targets. When he jumps to the middle it becomes more of a stacked-AoE-while-moving fight.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? I used HTT during the first laser phase.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? You probably have to use it during the laser phase, otherwise people are too spread out. Or maybe on the tank as an external.

Usage of Ancestral Guidance? It was nice during the laser phase. That is what I did both times.

Usage of Spiritwalkers’ Grace? During the laser phase. Move and heal, it is pretty good.

Guild: Ecology (Kazzak – EU) / Current world progress rank of the guild: 30 / World rank of the kill: 288/ 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: one-shot / Logs: not public / Video of the kill: not available / Number of healers used: 4 / Setup: 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 Totem, Ancestral Guidance, Ancestral Protection Totem, Echo of the Elements, High Tide.

Why did you pick Ancestral Protection Totem? I didn’t pick APT because of a useful moment. I expected there to be constant movement from everyone. It [APT] is a large circle, padding. Earthen Shield Totem is more difficult to position. The beam might do too much damage to ress you though.

Can you describe the type of fight? The ranged camp is super spread, the melee camp was Healing Rain sized.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? The cooldowns weren’t predetermined. I only got one HTT off, on a fight of 5 minutes. I just dropped it in the middle of the fight somewhere. If you don’t let any cake or robots explode, there is no raid damage. Only a DoT from eating the cake and the tank.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? I didn’t even use it. Didn’t find a place for it since it was a one-shot. I held onto it for in the case we needed it.

Usage of Ancestral Guidance? I blew my AG whenever there were as many cake debuffs up as possible.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? There was not a lot to heal. So Healing Stream Totem and Riptide are going to shoot up significantly. There was a fair bit of single target healing (mostly on the tanks). It was not very challenging.

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

Can you describe the type of fight? It was an underwhelming fight. There was no real damage. It took no effort to kill the boss.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? My tide was aweful. It was when our raid took the most damage, and it still did nothing.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? I used link at the end. During the last spinning in the middle, just to be safe. At the end the room gets a bit messy.

Usage of Spiritwalkers’ Grace? I used it when I was running in the middle, dodging the beam. It lines up for that phase all the time.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? You can drop more riptides on the people who eat cakes. But for us, that just wasn’t necessary. We ran with two druids and they are hotting people anyways. I was just spot healing and padding.

 

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: less than 10 / 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.

Can you describe the type of fight? At times it might be bursty. But it is more of a gradual damage taken. You have the ability to stand still for a big part of the fight, aside from picking up cakes and running around during Annihilation. People are stacked for Annihlation, other than that they are spread.

Usage of Healing Tide Totem? When it felt most needed. I usually had CBT and either AG or Ascendance to counter Annihilation (or a druid tranq). So my HTT was just used whenever.

Usage of Spirit Link Totem? I’m pretty sure I used it on the tanks. Or when we were running around for Annihilation.

Any other comments regarding your spell breakdown? My Ascendance was exceptionally weak. I used it twice, but I poorly placed them. Or at least it wasn’t very effective.
