Foreword

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.

Best Gems and Enchantsfor Restoration Druids

You should use Leviathan's Eye of Intellect Icon Leviathan's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Quick Sand Spinel Icon Quick Sand Spinel (or the cheaper Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye) in all other sockets.

Consumables for Restoration Druids

4.1.

Best Flasks and Potions for Restoration

Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used for raids along with Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment as your potion of choice. You can also use Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury to pre-pot at the beginning of the fight for damage since none of the potions provide any reasonable healing benefit. Coastal Mana Potion Icon Coastal Mana Potion can also be used once per fight as an instant Mana restore if the fight does not allow for usage of Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment.

Abyssal Healing Potion Icon Abyssal Healing Potion should be used alongside Healthstone Icon Healthstones for emergency healing.

4.2.

Best Food for Restoration

You should eat Haste food (Baked Port Tato Icon Baked Port Tato) or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts).

4.3.

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.

Starting in patch 8.3 you can also use the re-usable Lightning-Forged Augment Rune Icon Lightning-Forged Augment Rune to increase your primary stat by an equal amount.
