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 Gem Socket Icon Red Gems are usually the most valuable as they grant a lot of Spell Power, but Blue Gem Socket Icon Blue Gems (Mp5) and Yellow Gem Socket Icon Yellow Gems (Haste) are also very strong, and it is usually worth taking any socket bonuses available.

Phase 2 introduces the Stormjewels epic gems as a small drop chance from the daily Fishing quest. You can use one of these to gain a minor stat bonus over regular gems, but they are likely to be expensive. If you want to use one, we recommend a Runed Stormjewel Icon Runed Stormjewel.


Wrath Restoration Shaman Meta Gem

Insightful Earthsiege Diamond Icon Insightful Earthsiege Diamond is the best overall Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem for Restoration Shamans, granting a lot of Mana over time and benefiting from your constant casting rotation.


Wrath Restoration Shaman Red Gem Sockets

The Runed Scarlet Ruby Icon Runed Scarlet Ruby is the main gem that you should be putting into Red Gem Socket Icon Red Gem slots on your gear. This is because it offers a similar level of throughput increase as the Reckless Monarch Topaz Icon Reckless Monarch Topaz, but without the Mana pressure of having extra Haste.


Wrath Restoration Shaman Blue Gem Sockets

Royal Twilight Opal Icon Royal Twilight Opal is the best Blue Gem Socket Icon Blue Gem and should be used to unlock any Blue Socket Icon Blue Socket bonuses.


Wrath Restoration Shaman Yellow Gem Sockets

Reckless Monarch Topaz Icon Reckless Monarch Topaz is the best Yellow Gem Socket Icon Yellow Gem and should be used to unlock Yellow Socket Icon Yellow Sockets with good bonuses. Once Mana is no longer an issue, Quick Autumn's Glow Icon Quick Autumn's Glow 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 Icon 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

Spellpower Elixir Icon Spellpower Elixir is the best Battle Elixir and Elixir of Mighty Thoughts Icon Elixir of Mighty Thoughts or Elixir of Mighty Mageblood Icon Elixir of Mighty Mageblood are the best Guardian Elixirs.


Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Food Buff

Fish Feast Icon Fish Feast, Tender Shoveltusk Steak Icon Tender Shoveltusk Steak, and Firecracker Salmon Icon Firecracker Salmon all grant 46 Spell Power, and are the best food buffs available.


Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Potions

Potion of Speed Icon 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 Icon Potion of Wild Magic to boost your Fire Elemental Totem IconFire 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 Icon Runic Mana Potion or Potion of Nightmares Icon Potion of Nightmares. Crazy Alchemist's Potion Icon 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.
