With 5.3 on the horizon, I thought it was time to write about the expected Resto Druid changes. All of the changes will have a net positive effect on our healing (nothing is getting nerfed); however, are these buffs enough to make druids competitive with the other classes? In addition, please be aware that all the topics below are based on PTR patches, and thus can be changed or removed at any time. Pay attention to the date that this post was published and keep that in mind when reading. Also, I’m very interested in talking with the healing and druid community, so please comment below with your thoughts!
Some more great news from the PTR Dataminers! The map image for Isle of Giants has changed very slightly, however, very significantly. Take a look for yourself:
Over the past few days dataminers have been having a field day looking through the new 5.2 PTR build’s code, and they just found something very, very interesting. The following spell/tooltip was dug up from the code:
Awhile back I posted some 5.2 PTR footage from 25m normal mode testing, with the intention of editing in the final few bosses I have recorded in the near future. However, the past few weeks have been crazy, between slamming my head into Heroic Sha then 5.2 dropping! Although, I finally uploaded the Primordius and Dark Animus footage for those interested in seeing some PoV footage with strategy discussion with a Top 100 US Guild.
As I previously wrote about, I have been super busy with PTR raid testing and creating some solid video content for everyone! As of right now, I have several hours of trash, boss, and strategy footage. Currently, it is just raw footage with mumble audio included, nothing fancy. However, if there is enough interest for me to edit them into video guides, I’ll do it. So, let me know in the comment section if you are interested in that! Without further ado:
Don’t worry! We are not quitting so soon after just starting! I have just been extremely busy with the PTR 25m Normal Mode testing the past few days. It typically takes like 8+ hours a day, so it leaves very little time for posting here. However, that is not to say I have not been working on content for WoHC. I have been recording all of our boss kills, attempts, strategy discussion during trash, etc! I am currently uploading over 5 hours worth of PTR boss footage for you guys, so stay tuned, and check back tomorrow! I will have all the videos posted to our frontpage within 24 hours!
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).
