Last updated on Oct 31, 2020 at 23:21 by Seksixeny 17 comments

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Pre-Raid content for your Shaman Healer in WoW Classic. For more gearing advice, please refer to our Shaman Healer Gearing and Best in Slot guide.


Restoration Shaman Pre-Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List

This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for Restoration Shamans, setting you up to tackle the most challenging content in Phase 5, AQ40. While gear from starter raids will help you be even more prepared for the challenges of Ahn'Qiraj, you should be perfectly fine going in with our suggested pre-raid gear.

While we list both +Healing and Mp5 gear, go with +Healing gear when in doubt, as it will serve you better in the short fights that characterize WoW Classic's metagame. The value of Mp5 increases alongside fight duration, as longer fights allow you to regenerate more Mana from its effect.

You can find gear from dungeons, blue PvP sets (up to rank 10), quests and reputation gear in the list below.
