Best Gems for Restoration Shamans
Because of the different stat values, as discussed in our stats page, the value of each gem varies, depending on the stats they provide.
Red Gems are usually the most valuable as they grant a lot of Spell Power, but Blue Gems (Mp5) and Yellow Gems (Haste) are also very strong, and it is usually worth taking any socket bonuses available.
Phase 3 introduced epic gems from prospecting Titanium Ore. You can also transmute them with Alchemy or buy them with emblems.
Wrath Restoration Shaman Meta Gem
Wrath Restoration Shaman Red Gem Sockets
The Runed Cardinal Ruby is the main gem that you should be putting into Red Gem slots on your gear. This is because it offers a similar level of throughput increase as the Reckless Ametrine, but without the Mana pressure of having extra Haste.
Wrath Restoration Shaman Blue Gem Sockets
Royal Dreadstone is the best Blue Gem and should be used to unlock any Blue Socket bonuses.
Wrath Restoration Shaman Yellow Gem Sockets
Reckless Ametrine is the best Yellow Gem and should be used to unlock Yellow Sockets with good bonuses. Once Mana is no longer an issue, Quick King's Amber can provide even more Haste for higher throughput potential.
Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Complete Consumable List
Because of their expensive spells, Shamans can be quite Mana-hungry. You can prolong your Mana bar by using consumables, which is recommended when min-maxing or progressing new bosses.
Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Flasks
Flask of the Frost Wyrm is the recommended flask for Restoration Shamans, and is much stronger than using double elixirs, while potentially being much cheaper for progress on hard bosses because it does not get removed on death.
Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Elixirs
Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Food Buff
Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Potions
Potion of Speed is the best throughput potion during a fight if you do not need Mana, although you can also try pre-potting with Potion of Wild Magic to boost your Fire Elemental Totem as much as possible if you are min-maxing in a speed run or DPS parsing as Restoration.
If Mana is an issue, then use Runic Mana Potion or Potion of Nightmares. Crazy Alchemist's Potion deserves a special mention as it is likely to be much cheaper while being superior to the Runic Mana Potion, but can only be used by Alchemy-trained players.
