Welcome to Healcraft.net’s patch 6.0.2 survival guide for the Restoration Druid! This guide will briefly cover all the major changes from the recent patch as well as give you insight into how to optimally perform as a restoration druid in the new healing model. As always, if you ever find out of date information (or just wrong information) please leave a comment below and we will amend it as soon as we see it! In addition, we cannot cover every aspect of the class in this guide, so be sure to click on the Raiding Guides and Theorycraft links above to read all of our information on healing classes!
Officer Chat is a weekly column by Lavathing that discusses the trials and tribulations of performing a leadership role in a Warcraft raiding guild. We attempt to tackle the tough problems that arise from this job and present advice on how to move your guild forward.
This week we take a look at recruitment. It is every officer’s nightmare, but also one of the most essential parts of maintaining a productive raid team. Below I will address why it is so important, the problems you might run into, and solutions for being as effective of a recruitment officer as possible. If you have any questions of comments regarding this article, please comment below or tweet us @Healcraft!
Welcome to Healcraft.net’s new weekly column on leadership in World of Warcraft. These articles will include, but are not limited to, raid leading, being a guild master, various officer roles in a guild, various leadership roles in a raid team, and more. I’ve been a raid leader, GM, and/or officer on-and-off for nearly 4 years, and if there is one thing I’ve learned, it is that you should always be looking for new ideas on how to improve the way you lead your team. Admittedly, I still have a lot to learn and have room for improvement as a raid leader, but hopefully some of my experiences and lessons learned will help out some readers. For this first article, we will briefly go over some of the topics I will be covering over the coming weeks, what I expect out of this column, and just some other general information.
Welcome to a new article series on Healcraft.net! Rather than writing large text guides for encounters, we will be doing a very brief overview of fights each tier. We realized that text guides are a dime-a-dozen and writing another carbon-copy guide will not really contribute anything meaningful to the community. So, we are going to try to steal some of the thunder from the “Raid Guide in 60 Seconds” videos on youtube. Essentially, we will try to mimic the premise of 60 second raid guides in a text format. Finally, we already cover a lot of detailed encounter-specific stuff in our popular Tips & Tricks series (long text guides for each encounter would contain a lot of overlap). We hope our readers enjoy this new format, but it is not set in stone. Let us know what you think! Great idea, or cop out? Comment below or tweet us @Healcraft.
Welcome to my first tips and tricks article for heroic Siege of Orgrimmar! Remember, these tips and tricks articles are not encounter guides. Rather, as the name suggests, we offer unique insights on particular fights. As always, feel free to reply to this article with any comments and questions or shoot us a tweet @Healcraft.
UPDATE: These tips and tricks were written early in the Siege of Orgrimmar tier. The tips assume you are at the 3043 haste breakpoint and have a low item level. With today’s item levels, even for progressing guilds, you’ll likely want to take Soul of the Forest for all encounters regardless of what is mentioned below.
Well, it’s that time again, a new tier means a new BiS list! And this tier, in a new & exciting change, everyone should be able to gear for output and not be relegated to Mana Battery status (as in T15, due to being the healer with the lowest throughput by a large margin). So hooray for being a resto sham in T16.
Welcome to the second installment of our Tips & Tricks series. We tested the waters with it back in Throne of Thunder, and we were met with a lot of positive reactions. Due to this, we plan on rolling out a Tips & Tricks segment for all healing specs! Remember, these tips and tricks articles are not encounter guides. Rather, as the name suggests, we offer unique insights on the fights that you may not have previously thought about. Also, remember that these are tips and tricks for normal mode Siege of Orgrimmar — our heroic tips and tricks guide will be out soon!
Welcome to World of Healcraft’s raid guide for the Jin’rokh the Breaker encounter in the Throne of Thunder instance! Please note that this guide was written during the 5.2 PTR test period, so everything you read below is subject to change! With that said, we will be updating this guide with each build of the PTR, and eventually when it is released on live servers. However, if you spot anything that appears to be false or outdated, please leave a comment below and we will fix it ASAP! Finally, since we are primarily a healing resource website, the majority of the following will cover what healers need to do in this encounter (although we will cover the basics which effect all roles in the fight).
