Raid Talents for Restoration Shaman

In a raid setting, you want to prioritize raid healing talents, which often means taking Chain Heal Icon Chain Heal talents, such as High Tide Icon High Tide and Tidebringer Icon Tidebringer. Feel free to experiment with builds, as the current tier set provides general buffs which will work fine with any talent build.

Support talents such as Wind Shear Icon Wind Shear and Gust of Wind Icon Gust of Wind will be recommended on a boss-by-boss basis below, so make sure to check out our talent import strings if you are struggling with a specific boss!

  • Rionthus will spawn orbs around the room that will shield the boss for a huge amount if they reach him. You should run into these orbs to push them away from the boss;
  • When Rionthus is casting Deep Breath Icon Deep Breath, you will want to figure out where he is going and move away, as it does one-shot levels of damage. He will pick 1/3rd of the room to fly down and kill anyone in that area. Always be safe and move as far as possible to one side.

  • Casts of Echoing Fissure Icon Echoing Fissure in phase 1, Umbral Annihilation Icon Umbral Annihilation in phase 2, and Sunder Reality Icon Sunder Reality in phase 3 all deal increasing amounts of raid damage and warrant healing / defensive cooldowns, especially if you are deep into a phase;

You can import our recommended talent tree for this Boss directly into the game by copying the following string:

  • BgQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQIRSiSCplk0kU0okkSQQJBAINJppkIIJRSQLA
11.1.

Tips

  • Phase 1 is where healing is most intense, especially when yourself and others are removing Oppressing Howl Icon Oppressing Howl by standing in damaging abilities! Make sure to rotate your cooldowns accordingly, with Spirit Link Totem Icon Spirit Link Totem being ideal for the final Glittering Surge Icon Glittering Surge;
  • Get 10 stacks of Astral Flare Icon Astral Flare before coming up in Phase 2 start;
  • Dispel Infinite Duress Icon Infinite Duress when the affected person is standing at the correct position for the raid knockback to have little impact, and preferably also after everyone is brought out of dangerously low health values;
  • People with high stacks of Oblivion Icon Oblivion will need extra healing, consider telling them to go all the way to 10 in order to reset their stacks if the healing is becoming too overwhelming. Also, make sure to go over any pulsing Void Bomb Icon Void Bombs on the ground, as those give stacks and deal high damage very quickly!
