Cataclysm healing academy: Part 1

August 7, 2010 Leave a comment

Cataclysm Healing Academy, it’s a new initiative of SpamHeal blog. I’ve decided to start such actions becouse of Blizzard blues and they statements. Ghostclawler with his blue friends few times announced changes about healers mana, and about, endless mana poll. In Cataclysm it have to change, blues said that healers will have to manage their mana like old times, there were blues where Devs saying even about “Soft enrage” in fights which will happen when healers mana is out, lets call it “Mana starvation enrage”.

Don’t be naive, in this envoirment alot of us (healers), specially this one with lower experience┬á will be just lame, totally noobie when after 2 min of fights they’ll be Out of Mana. Yes, im hoping that’s possible.

For now, we have to wait for new mana regen mechic, atm on beta mana regen formula is totally broken (yes?) and your mana is just infinite (sitting with 3,000 mn5 isn’t intended seems like) so i can’t you tell about mana management or right spell usage.

So far, in beta we’ve got 3 instances and 1st part of academy will be about one of them, about Blackrock Caverns, lvl 80-82 instance. “Read more” for … yy … MORE!

Still no BETA :<, Shaman changes build 12644++

Yes, i still doesn’t have beta, it’s a fairly good reason why you don’t have beta streaming, impresions, other stuff.

Ok, we’re 3 build ahead then last post i’ve made. At least we’ve got some nice changes in our restoration build.

More on this changes tomorrow.

Cataclysm Beta – Build 12604 and previously.

More then two weeks ago last post were made, im sorry for that but all of the beta information makes me mad, everyday new build, new stuff, etc.

Last build, 12604 introduce brand new Armor Specializations, we, resto shamans are focused on:

Tribal Mail SpecializationIncreases your Intellect by 5% while wearing only Mail armor.

With this change Blizzard wants to make our BiS list with Mails, but im not 100% sure that 5% of intellect will be enough when itemization will be fucked ­čÖé

From class changes, Ancestral Swiftness is back as a Tier 2 talent in Enh tree, this is only noticeable change for our Resto tree.


Our possible Restoration builds at them moment:

This (3/5/31) is core of our build in my opinion, with 3 points in Ancestral Knowledge in Elemental tree and 5 points in Enh tree with points in Improved Shields 3/3 and Elemental Weapons 2/2.

Now, we’ve 2 free points to spend, and 2 “moveable” talents in Restoration tree, in my main build atm i’ll spend thoes 2 talents in Ancestral Swiftness (reminder: Ghostwolf will be useable indoor) which makes my final build like 3/7/31.

You can move 2 talents away from Ancestral Swiftness, 1 from Ancestral Resolve and put thoes 3 points into Focused Insight if you like to play more offensive (possible Flame shocking boss). You can take aswell 1 point more from┬á Ancestral Resolve and 1 from Elemental Weapons and put 2 points into Telluric Currents if you like to play more more offensive to gain some raid dps and probably good mana gain from “bolting” boss.

So far, our Restoration tree is still dissapointing for me at least. There is lack of new good healing utility.

Aditionally there is highly possible that i’ll have beta acces in next week, so stay tuned with news and previews.

Prolly everyone noticed that World of Warcraft: Cataclysm beta has started. Alot new stuff has come out, alot will be out in next days / weeks.

I’ve decided to pass all beta information, all except Shaman’s one, so you won’t notice zone change / other classes changes etc. All that stuff you can find at MMO-Champion for example. So far there isn’t much shaman new stuff.

Ghostwolf indoor is confirmed, Unleash of Rockbiter won’t makes us tanks, that’s confirmed by blue aswell, it’s more for situational usage. Talent trees isnt much changed so far. Anyway, keep in touch with us to be fresh with beta news

3.3.5 release date, Ruby Sanctum shaman drops.

3.3.5 this week? No, yesterday PTR Maintance is done and Public Test Server is prolly going up again becouse there is more work to do as Blizzard devs noticed. That’s mean that new content patch won’t be up this week, personally i doubt it will be on next week, more likely we need to wait 2-3 weeks more.

That’s good for me, becouse i have time to look into drops there, so:
