About Our Reviewers

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Babàyo, one of the best Restoration Shamans in the world, who raids in From Scratch, and by Stoove, our in-house Restoration Shaman theorycrafter and occasional blogger.

Class Overview

Currently, Restoration Shamans shine when it comes to healing grouped up or stacked players, particularly during periods of extremely high damage, thanks to Spirit Link Totem Icon Spirit Link Totem and Healing Tide Totem Icon Healing Tide Totem. Moreover, Spiritwalker's Grace Icon Spiritwalker's Grace allows Restoration Shamans to retain their healing while moving, which is very useful.

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 (Spirit Link Totem Icon Spirit Link Totem, in particular, but also stuns, spell reflection, removal of fear and movement-impairing effects, AoE slow and snare, etc.).

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.
