On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Restoration Druid in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Best Gems for Restoration Druids

In general, you should be using gems and enchants according to the stat weights shown to you by HealerStatWeights Addon or https://wowanalyzer.com. However, if you do not have spare items for both Mythic+ and Raiding, Mastery enchants and gems are a good compromise and will never be bad for either content. Use Masterful Tidal Amethyst Icon Masterful Tidal Amethyst (or the cheaper Masterful Kubiline Icon Masterful Kubiline) in all sockets.

2. Best Enchants for Restoration Druids

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon

3. Consumables for Restoration Druids

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Restoration

Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used for raids and dungeons. Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect, Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment and Coastal Mana Potion Icon Coastal Mana Potion are your potions of choice.

Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect should be used right before the pull to last you through the start of the fight. Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment is a one-time usage potion per fight where you can restore Mana at the cost of not being able to cast or move while the effect lasts. Coastal Mana Potion Icon Coastal Mana Potion can also be used once per fight for cases where you can not stand still for 10 seconds.

Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion can be used together with Healthstones.

3.2. Best Food for Restoration

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Haste food (Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts).

3.3. Augment Runes for Restoration

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
