Improving your mana management is one of the number one ways to improve as a healer and you’ll notice your numbers skyrocket if you manage it correctly. We’re going to look at how efficient each of our spells are so we know which ones to cast more and which to cast less. We’ll also look at mana restoring trinkets, traits and potions.
Last updated July 1st for Patch 9.1. Conduits are similar to BFA’s Essences, but much easier to obtain. You can get them at multiple levels and they drop from a variety of content types. Each soulbind tree has a multitude of slots to put them in and they come in three types. Potency, Endurance and Finesse. Niya, for example, has slots for all three early […]
Last Changed: 20 July One of Shadowlands major features is the addition of craftable legendaries using mats pulled from the depths of Torghast. This time around you only get to wear one at a time. We discuss each in some detail below. In addition to the Druid legendaries listed we can pick one of several “neutral” legendaries that are available to all classes. These aren’t […]
Those looking for corruption vendor recommendations might find the following more up to date as this was written as a PTR preview. Titanforging is dead. In its place, Corruption. Every season 4 piece of gear you get in 8.3 will have a chance to roll one of eighteen different “corruption affixes”. They range from stat increases to fun cooldown-reduction to huge damage procs. We won’t […]
Patch 8.3 adds The Formless Void, Unwavering Ward and Spirit of Preservation to our Essences collection along with a minor Essence slot. The rank threes appear to be time-gated in various ways so these might not feature heavily in the opening weeks of the raid but you’ll want to get started on them early. Recommended sets for each of the healing specs covered will be […]
Healing trinkets in Eternal Palace were a blessing. Jellyweed and Deferred Sentence add incredible healing; Leviathan’s Lure and Aquipotent Nautilus put out excellent DPS and Font of Power was a fantastic stat stick (if a pain to use). We… won’t mention Za’qul’s Portal Key. Ny’alotha adds a lot of new trinkets including a two set with a seemingly massive set bonus. A lot of them are […]
Update: On the 19th November Glimmer was nerfed by an additional 12% on top of the target cap. It is discussed below. Glimmer of Light paladin in the Eternal Palace has been ultra powerful to the point where it quickly overshadowed other specs. We always knew nerfs were coming, but we weren’t sure what form they would take or if they would be significant […]
You can find part one of the Essence article here and part two here. Today we’re going to lead with powerhouse The Ever Rising Tide and then for completions sake take a look at the final three which are mostly stat procs. All data is from the PTR and can change before Live but if they’re going to make changes they should really move that […]
We continue the Essences article series with part 2 featuring Vision of Perfection, Conflict & Strife and Crucible of Flame. Fistweaving, Paladins with 40% wings uptime and so much Tranquility it’ll feel like Uldir. Read more inside.
8.2 adds a new type of power in Azerite Essences. A new path in the Heart of Azeroth itself. Read through an in-depth look at the first half of the healing Essences.
