Best Gems for Restoration Shaman 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: Funeral Pyre Icon Funeral Pyre
  • Cogwheel Gem: Blink Icon Blink for mobility or Dark Pact Icon Dark Pact for survivability
  • Prismatic Gems:

    Due to Resurgence Icon Resurgence you will want to stack Critical Strike for the most part, with a healthy mix of the other stats being recommended beyond that, although Mastery will naturally be worse if you are focusing on damage during the easy encounters, where Haste is better overall.

  • Tinker Gems:
    • Brilliance Icon Brilliance (Personal Vers and Group Mana)
    • Lightning Rod Icon Lightning Rod (Group Crit)
    • Windweaver Icon Windweaver (Group Haste)
    • Enkindle Icon Enkindle (Personal Haste)
    • Righteous Frenzy Icon Righteous Frenzy (Group Haste)
    • Ankh of Reincarnation Icon Ankh of Reincarnation (Cheat Death effect)
    • Searing Light Icon Searing Light (Healing + DPS)
    • Deliverance Icon Deliverance (Healing)
    • Tinkmaster's Shield Icon Tinkmaster's Shield (Healing)
    • Vampiric Aura Icon Vampiric Aura (Healing)
    • Cold Front Icon Cold Front (Healing + Enemy Reduction)
    • Static Charge Icon Static Charge (Healing + DPS)
    • Slay Icon Slay (DPS)
    • Fervor Icon Fervor (DPS)
    • Sunstrider's Flourish Icon Sunstrider's Flourish (DPS)
    • Explosive Barrage Icon Explosive Barrage (DPS)
    • Storm Overload Icon Storm Overload (DPS)
  • You will be unlikely to loot the best gems right away, so make sure to experiment with whatever gems you get while leveling. Gems such as Fervor Icon Fervor are especially powerful for healers due to their damage abilities being inherently weaker, and you will also have an easier time keeping yourself above 80% health, especially in combination with Vampiric Aura Icon Vampiric Aura.
