Class Overview

Currently, Restoration Shamans shine when it comes to healing grouped up or stacked players. They are also very good tank healers. That said, they lack the necessary tools for healing spread out groups as efficiency as other classes do.

Restoration Shamans make a worthy addition to any raid, thanks to their abilities to complement other healers. Also, they bring a wide array of useful abilities, through their many totems (Mana Tide Totem Icon Mana Tide Totem, in particular).

In order to properly play a healing role, you will need more than just class-specific information. To better understand healing in general, we recommend that you read our healing guide.
