Best Gems for Restoration Druid in MoP Remix

Gems are one of the unique ways to augment your character in MoP Remix, offering offensive, defensive, and utility benefits. On this page, we list the best gems for each type. To learn more about Gems in MoP Remix in general, check out our dedicated page below.

  • Meta Gem: Ward of Salvation Icon Ward of Salvation, Tireless Spirit Icon Tireless Spirit, Funeral Pyre Icon Funeral Pyre, or Locus of Power Icon Locus of Power.
  • The best meta gem will come down to whether you prefer buffing your allies, increasing your own stats, or gaining extra utility to make healing easier. It is recommended that you play around with each and find out which one you enjoy using the most.
  • Cogwheel Gem: Blink Icon Blink
  • Blink Icon Blink will be the best Cogwheel Gem. The other choices are not particularly useful for Restoration Druid.
  • Prismatic Gems:

    You will gain a lot of amount of stats as you start unlocking gem slots, and there is no single best stat to stack. You probably want Haste and Crit while you are leveling. You can later swap to Mastery, if you need healing, but that is unlikely to happen.

  • Tinker Gems:
    • Righteous Frenzy Icon Righteous Frenzy
    • Sunstrider's Flourish Icon Sunstrider's Flourish
    • Ankh of Reincarnation Icon Ankh of Reincarnation
    • Brilliance Icon Brilliance
    • Vampiric Aura Icon Vampiric Aura
    • Searing Light Icon Searing Light
    • Freedom Icon Freedom
    • Warmth Icon Warmth
    • Deliverance Icon Deliverance

    These Tinker Gems will mostly provide you with healing increases or buff other players in your group. If you instead want to do more damage you could opt for gems such as Enkindle Icon Enkindle, Windweaver Icon Windweaver, Lightning Rod Icon Lightning Rod and any of the other damaging dealing gems.

Leveling Rotation for Restoration Druid

When using our slider, note that some talents may appear sooner than you expect them to in the rotation. This is because we have two recommended builds above, each taking talents at slightly different times, and sometimes entirely different talents.

  1. Adaptive Swarm Icon Adaptive Swarm should be used on cooldown for healing and damage.
  2. Convoke the Spirits Icon Convoke the Spirits is a great spell to damage an enemy and heal your group quickly, if you are specced into it.
  3. Rake Icon Rake a single target DoT that you can only cast from Cat Form.
  4. Moonfire Icon Moonfire is a great damage over time spell that you should use against any enemy you are fighting.
  5. Sunfire Icon Sunfire deals damage to a target, similar to Moonfire. It will also apply a damage over time effect to all enemies within 8 yards once you are specced into Improved Sunfire Icon Improved Sunfire.
  6. Ferocious Bite Icon Ferocious Bite deals damage based on the amount of combo points spent. The damage is increased further for each Energy point used beyond 25, up to 25 extra.
  7. Use Rip Icon Rip instead of Ferocious Bite if you expect the enemy to live long enough for the DoT to do all the damage.
  8. Cat Form Icon Cat Form. You move 30% faster in Cat Form. This also unlocks Shred Icon Shred, a single target attack only usable in Cat Form and awards 1 Combo Point.
