On this page, you will find the best PvE gear and best in slot items for your Restoration Druid Healer in WoW Classic - Season of Discovery.

1.

Restoration Druid Healer Season of Discovery Best in Slot

We recommend using the gear listed below for Phase 2 as your main goal in the current phase of Season of Discovery. Also, as many people still run Blackfathom Deeps regularly to level up and are likely to have a lot of good gear from there equipped, the Phase 1 list can also be found below for reference.

These lists assume a stat priority of:

Spell Healing > Mp5 > Intellect > Spirit > Stamina

Take note that there is very little gear with pure healing stats accessible at Level 40, and thus Intellect gear will feature prominently in this list, which is helpful as Mana is likely to be a major issue at low levels.

For more information on the stats that you should be looking for, check out the stats page listed below.

To help with presentation clarity, items that have Alliance and Horde versions with similar acquisition methods but different names will only have one of the versions listed in the tables below.

Damage Focused Gnomeregan (Phase 2) Restoration Druid Best in Slot

This list is made up of Gnomeregan raid drops, world drops, profession gear, quest rewards and dungeon drops.

As Restoration Druids are often finding themselves as damage dealers who press Wild Growth Icon Wild Growth on cooldown, this is a gear list aimed at making your hybrid damage and healing capabilities as good as possible, focusing on Spell Damage and Healing gear, rather than pure Healing.
