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!

Be sure to make use of the 'Copy Export String' button to import the build directly into your game!

Gnarlroot

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

  • BgQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQIRSiSCplk0kU0okkSQQJBAINJppkIIJRSQLA

Depending on how much crowd control is required on Tainted Lashers (and Tainted Treants in Mythic) and how much boss damage there is, you may want to spec into Thundershock Icon Thundershock or the regular Thunderstorm Icon Thunderstorm, in order to help CC or group up adds.

3.1.

Tips

  • Make sure you have as many healing cooldowns available as possible for Uprooted Agony Icon Uprooted Agony phases, as incoming damage is very high. Players with the Ember-Charred Icon Ember-Charred debuff will be in particular danger;
  • The number one priority in this fight is using Controlled Burn Icon Controlled Burn to awaken Tainted Lashers to prevent being overwhelmed by them in P2. Gust of Wind Icon Gust of Wind, Ghost Wolf Icon Ghost Wolf, Spiritwalker's Grace Icon Spiritwalker's Grace, and Wind Rush Totem Icon Wind Rush Totem are all helpful, and also while setting fire to the roots in the intermissions;
  • Use Capacitor Totem Icon Capacitor Totem, Earthbind Totem Icon Earthbind Totem, and Thunderstorm Icon Thunderstorm (if specced) to help control adds;
  • Mythic: Make sure you interrupt Tainted Treant, control them as needed, and spread out more due to Pollen Burn Icon Pollen Burn, especially if you get it yourself!

For more information, please refer to our Gnarlroot guide.

Igira the Cruel

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

  • BgQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQIRSiSCplk0kU0okkSQQJBAINJppkIIJRSQLA
4.1.

Tips

  • Blistering Spear Icon Blistering Spear should be placed close to each other, but use a defensive if in close proximity of two or more other players also dropping these!
  • If you are soaking Marked for Torment Icon Marked for Torment in the intermissions, make sure to use Wind Rush Totem Icon Wind Rush Totem and Spiritwalker's Grace Icon Spiritwalker's Grace as you will need to continually move away from the swirlies on the ground;
  • Use healing cooldowns to heal through Umbral Destruction Icon Umbral Destruction and Heart Stopper Icon Heart Stopper's absorbs;
  • Mythic: The same mechanics apply in Mythic, but in a much more deadlier fashion, as you will be dealing with two weapons every phase instead of one.

For more information, please refer to our Igira guide.

Volcoross

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

  • BgQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQIRSiSCplk0kU0okkSQQJBAINJppkIIJRSQLA
5.1.

Tips

  • Avoid getting hit by the boss' tail slam (where the big shadow will appear), as it will one-shot you. Make sure you move away from it, as the slam will also send out magma blobs;
  • Use Wind Rush Totem Icon Wind Rush Totem to help your group position for soaking Flood of the Firelands Icon Flood of the Firelands and away from it;
  • Move away from people with Coiling Flames Icon Coiling Flames and away from other people if you get it;
  • Try having as many healing cooldowns as possible for the final part of the fight where Boss casts Serpent's Fury Icon Serpent's Fury;
  • Mythic: Coiling Flames Icon Coiling Flames will now explode and need to be soaked when they are close to expiring, make sure to prioritize this mechanic!

For more information, please refer to our Volcoross guide.

6.

Council of Dreams

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

  • BgQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQIRSiSCplk0kU0okkSQQJBAINJppkIIJRSQLA
6.1.

Tips

  • Considering mass-removing Poisonous Javelin Icon Poisonous Javelin with Poison Cleansing Totem Icon Poison Cleansing Totem, but be careful of using it too fast, as the dispelled targets explode, hitting any other nearby players;
  • Don't stand in front of the bear boss unless you are soaking Barreling Charge Icon Barreling Charge, in which case you should use a defensive;
  • Remember to Polymorph Bomb Icon Polymorph Bomb the bear boss once he gets to 100 energy, as otherwise he will do raid damage until your group wipes. You can safely remove your duck form by soaking any flower patches in the ground, but be careful of doing it nearby other players, as that will convert them into ducks, instead!
  • Mythic: The main mechanical difference is that two bosses use their 100 energy abilities simultaneously instead of one. Overall, you will still handle those mechanics equally, just making the fight more hectic.

Tips

  • Prioritize healing the Charred Treant Icon Charred Treants as they appear on your boss frames, you can use area of effect healing as they are likely to be close enough to all be hit at once;
  • After they are doused and killed, you should heal the Charred Brambles Icon Charred Brambles as well, as that will provide a protection area for Raging Inferno Icon Raging Inferno, You will still want to use healing cooldowns during this ability, regardless, as it does heavy damage;
  • The largest raid damage will come after 3 casts of Raging Inferno Icon Raging Inferno, as the Boss will cast Consuming Flame Icon Consuming Flame to deal huge damage over 16 seconds. Make sure you are prepared with Spirit Link Totem Icon Spirit Link Totem and other cooldowns;
  • After the damage is over, the second phase begins. It is a soft enrage burn phase, and you will want to Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust and use anything left before the raid is killed by the ramping damage;
  • Mythic: Use defensives and go as far from the raid as you can when targeted by Ashen Devastation Icon Ashen Devastation. Wind Rush Totem Icon Wind Rush Totem can help everyone spread out quickly.
