If you were looking for WoW Classic content, please refer to our Classic Restoration Shaman Healer enchants and consumables.


Best Gems for Restoration Shamans

You should use Leviathan's Eye of Intellect Icon Leviathan's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Versatile Dark Opal Icon Versatile Dark Opal (or the cheaper Versatile Royal Quartz Icon Versatile Royal Quartz) in all other sockets.

If Versatility's damage reduction is irrelevant to you, you should use Deadly Lava Lazuli Icon Deadly Lava Lazuli (or the cheaper Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze), instead.

Consumables for Restoration Shamans


Best Flasks and Potions for Restoration

Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used for raids along with Superior Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Superior Battle Potion of Intellect. This last potion should be used just before pulling, so that you can also use Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment during the encounter itself.

Abyssal Healing Potion Icon Abyssal Healing Potion should be used alongside Healthstone Icon Healthstones for emergency healing. Coastal Mana Potion Icon Coastal Mana Potion can be used instead of Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment during the fight if you need instant Mana restoration.


Best Food for Restoration

You should eat from the Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table (or the cheaper Sanguinated Feast Icon Sanguinated Feast / even cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Mech-Dowel's Big Mech Icon Mech-Dowel's "Big Mech" is the best individual food (Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches and Kul Tiramisu Icon Kul Tiramisu are cheap alternatives).


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.
