Restoration Shaman Pre-Raid Best in Slot List
This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for Restoration Shamans. That does not mean you are required to have this gear to start raiding, but instead that this is a list of non-raid items that are strong choices, and thus that you should use to make your gear stronger while not raiding.
The gear choices in the tables below follow our stat guide priority.

Some of the listed gear can be expensive to get, or time consuming to obtain in the case of dungeon gear, so do not be afraid of going straight into raiding at 80, as entry raids are extremely easy, even when done with questing gear!
In Phase 4, Titan Rune Dungeons bosses drop Emblem of Triumph and Defiler's Scourgestone, which can be traded for Sidereal Essence on a one-to-one basis. With these currencies you will be able to get some incredibly powerful gear relatively quickly, such as the 245 item level version of Solace of the Fallen and 252 item level Show of Faith, or as many Trophy of the Crusade for 245 item level tier 9 pieces as you wish.
Wrath Classic Restoration Shaman Tier 8 Set
Restoration Shaman Tier 8, the Worldbreaker Regalia, can be obtained from a combination of badges and Titan Rune Heroic Dungeons.
Its set bonuses are:
- 2 pieces — reduces the cooldown on Riptide by 1 sec. This can be a small healing increase, depending on how much you use Riptide;
- 4 pieces — reduces the cast time of Chain Heal by 0.2 sec. This is equivalent to a lot of Haste for your most valuable spell, and a very strong set bonus!
You will want to get the 2-piece and, especially, the 4-piece bonus as soon as possible, as the strong bonuses more than make up for the weak stats on the individual pieces.
