1. Trinkets for Restoration Shamans

We are currently unsure how powerful some trinkets are in Battle for Azeroth. For now, we have listed all of the trinkets that go towards improving your healing and where they drop.

1.1. Dungeons

1.2. World Bosses

1.3. Crafted

1.4. Uldir

2. Best in Slot List for Restoration Shamans in Uldir

Below are the recommended items from each boss in the Uldir raid, accounting for balanced stats and recommended Azerite traits. This does not take into account gear from sources other than Uldir. There might be better pieces of gear available from other instances, especially with the potential for titanforging.

The trinket selections are present to give you an aim within the raid, but separate BiS trinket builds will be presented separately once more testing has been done. For now, these are the best choices within Uldir-only loot.

We have also indicated which bosses you should use your bonus roll on.
