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.
Hey guys! Murilo back again with a few Tips & Tricks for Siege of Orgrimmar. I’ve been looking forward to transferring all these notes to a post for a while now. I apologize for not finishing last tiers T&T article, I only did part 1. Mixture of RL and our guild just killing Ra-Den a few weeks before 5.4 launched (blame roster issues and the “stable internet boss” aka Comcast).
Anyway, as with the T&T article for T15, these are resto shaman specific things on each encounter that can help murder the boss & hopefully improve your personal performance. As always, this is all from a 25man perspective; sorry 10-man raiders. The strength of glyphs can vary greatly between 10&25 man, especially something like Glyph of Chaining that has to do with distance between players. I only have heroic experience this tier on 25 sadly.
Hands-down my favorite part of contributing to this site is writing articles like this. It’s also the type of thing I search most for when I look at other blogs & online resources for healing. It’s nice to read about general things like boss mechanics, what classes are strong at a given time, how you should weigh your stats, and all that stuff, but I really like getting & giving feedback about heroic fights from other resto shamans. Always great to read something someone did, and have that “Of course, why didn’t I think of that?!?” moment.
