General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Restoration Druids in World of Warcraft Legion 7.0.3, how the class benefits from each of them.

The statistics priority is important as it influences itemisation choices (gear, enchants, and gems).

The other pages of our Restoration Druid guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Sonie, a Restoration Druid who raids in Serenity, one of the best guilds in the world. You can follow him on Twitter.

1. Basics

The stat priority for a Restoration Druid is:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Versatility.

It should be noted that Haste and Critical Strike are very close to each other in value, and the choice, especially during progression, would depend on the encounter.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

2.1. Statistics Explanations

Intellect is your primary stat. You should look for this stat in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Spell Power, which increases the power of your heals.

Haste is important because it lowers the cast time of your heals as well as your global cooldown.

Mastery (Mastery: Harmony Icon Mastery: Harmony) increases the healing you do to targets affected by your HoTs by an amount (determined by your Mastery level) for each active HoT.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.

Versatility increases all your damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.
