WotLK Classic Restoration Druid Spec, Builds, Talents, and Glyphs
On this page, you will find out the best PvE talent choices and builds for your Restoration Druid in WotLK Classic, as well as advised glyphs.
Restoration Leveling Talents
Restoration has several viable builds for endgame PvE content, as you can opt into a pure heal-over-time-focused Celestial Focus build with a lower Haste cap for your Rejuvenation blanketing or a build that invests more into the Restoration tree to empower Nourish with talents such as Empowered Touch and Living Seed.
If you were looking for leveling builds, please refer to our leveling guide for Druids.
Wrath Restoration Thicc Resto PvE Talent Build
In this phase it is easy to get 856 Haste required to be capped due to the increased overall power of gear and availability of epic gems.
Wrath Restoration Celestial Focus PvE Talent Build
If your gear has not hit 856 Haste yet, you might want to stay with this build which picks up Celestial Focus in order to hit a lowered Haste cap of 735 where you can optimally spread out Rejuvenation and Wild Growth.
Regardless, Glyph of Nourish is still taken to cover the high tank damage in Wrath PvE content.
Wrath Restoration Glyphs
In Wrath you will be able to unlock Glyphs that improve your abilities and can be swapped around freely as long as you have the consumable glyph item on your bags.
Notable Restoration Druids Talents
Nature's Grace increases your casting speed by 20% when you critically hit with a non-periodic spell, but only for 3-seconds. This can occasionally be useful for single-target heal spamming.
Nature's Reach affects Cyclone and Entangling Roots, which gives it some PvP value, as you will be able to crowd control from a longer distance, which is especially valuable for Cyclone due to its 20 yards baseline range.
The Feral Tree provides no real benefits to Restoration and should be ignored.
Omen of Clarity is a good Mana-saving talent, especially as you can use it to cast the expensive Lifebloom and still get 50% of its original Mana cost! Try to melee enemies when you can do so safely for extra procs.
Natural Perfection increases your Critical Strike chance and makes you take less damage for 8 seconds after you take a Critical Strike, stacking up to a total of 12% damage reduction, which makes it great in PvP.
Revitalize helps the targets of your heals by granting up to 15% chance that your Rejuvenation and Wild Growth will restore their class resources (1% Mana, 4 Rage, 8 Energy or 16 Runic Power) on each healing tick.
Tree of Life is your main shapeshift form and reduces the Mana cost of heal-over-time spells by 20%, as well as granting a 6% healing taken buff to everyone around you.
Improved Barkskin is a strong PvP talent that makes Barkskin have a stronger damage reduction effect and be more difficult to dispel. It also increases your Armor when in Travel Form or not in a form.
Wild Growth is a smart heal that hits the most damaged allies near the target you cast on with a powerful heal-over-time effect that diminishes in potency over time.
