Hmmm... This is what I have to say (bear in mind that everything I say is NOT meant to be taken as if I was being a dick, just trying to help you in my own way):

1) I noticed that occasionally you backpaddle (might be wrong, not sure, can't tell with accuracy). If I was you I would firstly get rid of that since this movement command works nothing but downhills in PvP and it can free you some good extra binds like S, S combined with Shift/Ctrl/Alt.

2) I opened the video called "FDK WW RDRU" in the "Wins" link. Open it, and pause it at 0:56. I do not think that this UI is helping you in any way. At 1:18, you are literally unable to see where ANYONE is just because you turned around. But UI is 100% a preference thing so let's move past that.

3) GladiatorLosSA. Opinions may differ here, but I would advise you to remove that addon. Not because of matters of "principle" on AJ, but because in my experience it does not help you become a better player. I used to have it as well back in MoP, but I had it at a point where I wasn't even looking at my enemies' position anymore because I was so used to hearing everything and tunneling my target. After I removed it, it was way easier for me to focus on visual cues, and thus slowly learn to recognize patterns, predict movements, etc.

4) You have way too many distracting sounds. This is personal opinion once more, but I would not be able to play to my fullest with so much going in the background (visual noise + these sounds).

5) At times, you really need to revise your positioning on certain maps.

That's all. Hope I helped you somehow.

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.

using those addons probably cripples you more then having them... they're practically playing the game for you,can barley tell whats even going on,as any healer, positioning is most important, have ur team play off you and hump the pillar, all ur heals are instant so you really weant to use that to ur advantage, when u see some CC coming at you and its sometihn you cant prevent just iron bark them before u go into the cc and they're 100% fine,lining up ur iron bark on better burst would help to, or spamming clones helps even more

 

 

right now in my opinion rdruids suck, they might be meta but they arent healers to me, were just bark skin bots, so u want to play around ur iron bark, cuz ur heals are shit.

 

 

add me in game if you want ill help more

also- i never go relentless on my druid, like ever.

I don't think the UI is really that bad. All the important info is there, it just looks a bit wacky at first. Clearcasting sonar ping and the sheep spam can work as well I guess... but you should really look into your gladiatorlossa settings.

 

Do you really need it to spam "BIG HEAL, BIG HEAL, BIG HEAL" just because the hpala is casting holy light? Do you need to have both interruptbar and gladiatorlossa to track windshear? Do you need it to actually tell you that you've feared yourself by dispelling vampiric touch? Now I think it's a fantastic addon for healers to track and trade big cds like vendetta, counterstrike totem, ascendance, berserk, touch of death, pillar of frost, avatar, battle cry, serenity, etc, but I don't know how much it helps you there.

 

As for the actual gameplay... you're getting ccd a bit much vs crappy teams and if they're decent at kicking, you're instantly in trouble. Pushing a lot for risky bash-cyclones as well and you could be better at maxranging stuff like windshear, mind freeze and deathgrip. You could probably also fakecast cyclones into rejuvs when you don't actually want to clone, just to be more unpredictable and bait an interrupt here and there. But oh well, I haven't even leveled my main, the druid, to 110 yet...

I think power auras used to have these kind of sounds, but I don't think you can link it to jumping. :P

First of all you're pretty brave to come here with such a question.

Second, as others have already commented, this UI is a mess. Your bars are so small that you apparently can't see your cds because you have them double right besides your character - where's the sense in that? I'd suggest clearing up your UI so you have more room to see what's going on in the arena. I would turn up the opaqueness of the powerauras so they'll give a visual indicator without blocking your view, getting bigger bars (and macroing abilities that don't have a cd to show the cds of the abilities you want to know) and getting rid of stuff that's directly in the middle of your character (that may be personal preference)

 

Another thing: I don't know if you guys play forever with each other and know your comp inside out, but you should talk way more. Enemy cds, what you intend to do, what's happening, everything important should be called out so that you can play as a team. You have periods of prolonged silence that could be used better. Telling them to play defensive, that they should interrupt something or use deff cds and so on. (Also during your first 3 losses your enhancer didn't use his deff cd or it isn't shown) (And reducing the audio spam would help with that too. I don't really know why you have such a big poweraura with a sonar ping for your freecast)

 

And in general your playstyle is a bit lacking: You sometimes waste a lot of time chasing someone trying to cc them, you don't seem to fake or be comfortable doing it at all. Also something to keep track of dr timer would be good, you tried to cyclone the enemy druid during full dr in your last loss. Honestly I'm a bit surprised you're at almost 1900 in 2s after what I saw.

 

Good luck!

man. I know it's been said, but really consider playing without addons. just stick to the "basics", such as omnibar and gladius. at the most I'd add in "moveanything" to the mix. 

 

 

your addons / sounds likely distract you more than they help.
