PvP Best in Slot List for Healing Shamans

This is the gear we recommend for PvP encounters such as World PvP, Battlegrounds, and Arenas. In PvP you need less Spell Hit from you gear to maximize your odds at hitting enemies; only 3% is needed (or nothing, assuming you have maximized Nature's Guidance IconNature's Guidance). Make sure you do not go above your Spell Hit cap with your gear, to avoid wasting stats!

You can learn more about how to leverage your unique skills in the Restoration Shaman PvP guide below:

The list below is meant to provide general pointers of what to use on each slot. Feel free to use any other high Resilience / Stamina and Intellect / Spell Power / Critical Strike / Armor pieces you find, as they will serve you well while climbing through the ranks.
