Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Restoration Shaman

This guide covers the best enchants, gems, and consumables you can use in Dragonflight.

For a better understanding of why these specific enchants and gems are recommended, check out detailed stats guide below.


Best Gems for Restoration Shamans

Gems are crafted by Jewelcrafting and you can use as many as you have sockets in your gear. You can guarantee sockets in your necklace with the Tiered Medallion Setting Icon Tiered Medallion Setting, also crafted by Jewelcrafters.

You will always want to have one Primalist Gem, ideally the maximum Quality Inscribed Illimited Diamond Icon Inscribed Illimited Diamond, but the baseline Inscribed Illimited Diamond Icon Inscribed Illimited Diamond is still worth using over any other gem.

Radiant Alexstraszite Icon Radiant Alexstraszite is the best gem to stack on the other slots, especially if you are using the Jewelcrafting-produced trinket Idol of the Lifebinder Icon Idol of the Lifebinder, which scales with the amount of Alexstraszite gems you are using.


Best Enchants for Restoration Shamans

Dragonflight reintroduces Leg enchants from Tailoring, which have cheap (Vibrant Spellthread Icon Vibrant Spellthread) and expensive (Temporal Spellthread Icon Temporal Spellthread) versions.

The rest of the enchants are produced by the Enchanting profession and typically have a cheap version (Enchant Bracer - Writ of Leech Icon Enchant Bracer - Writ of Leech) and an expensive version (Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech).

They are also affected by Quality, with the best version (Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech) being expected to be much more expensive than the baseline version (Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech).

We will be listing only the best versions of each enchant, but lower versions can be used to save gold.

Slot Enchantment
Cloak Enchant Cloak - Regenerative Leech Icon Enchant Cloak - Regenerative Leech
Bracers Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech
Boots Enchant Boots - Plainsrunner's Breeze Icon Enchant Boots - Plainsrunner's Breeze
Weapon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion

Consumables for Restoration Shamans


Best Phials and Potions for Restoration Shamans

Phials are the new Flasks and persist through death for 30 minutes. Potions are short duration powerful effects. Both are crafted by Alchemy and affected by Quality which increases their effects.

Phial of Elemental Chaos Icon Phial of Elemental Chaos is the most consistent phial, and you can use its baseline version Phial of Elemental Chaos Icon Phial of Elemental Chaos to save gold if needed. Phial of Static Empowerment Icon Phial of Static Empowerment is even stronger if the encounter has low movement.

Use Potion of Frozen Focus Icon Potion of Frozen Focus to regenerate Mana if you can afford the downtime. Otherwise Aerated Mana Potion Icon Aerated Mana Potion or Potion of Chilled Clarity Icon Potion of Chilled Clarity (with Chain Heal Icon Chain Heal spam) are better. Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power or the cheaper Elemental Potion of Power Icon Elemental Potion of Power can be used for throughput if you are fine on Mana.

Residual Neural Channeling Agent Icon Residual Neural Channeling Agent and Delicate Suspension of Spores Icon Delicate Suspension of Spores can be used while dead and be the difference between victory and defeat in an encounter.

Refreshing Healing Potion Icon Refreshing Healing Potion does not share the same cooldown as Healthstone Icon Healthstones and should be used for emergency self-healing.


Best Food for Restoration Shamans

Food is crafted by Cooking and has no Quality, which means all versions of a food item are equal.

Eat from the Dragonflight feasts, Hoard of Draconic Delicacies Icon Hoard of Draconic Delicacies or Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak Icon Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak, if possible. Otherwise, eat Fated Fortune Cookie Icon Fated Fortune Cookie, Revenge, Served Cold Icon Revenge, Served Cold, or the cheaper Filet of Fangs Icon Filet of Fangs.


Other Consumables for Restoration Shamans

If you are not using Earthliving Weapon Icon Earthliving Weapon, use the Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Rune Fauna Rune, crafted by Inscription, on your weapon.


Augment Runes for Restoration Shamans

Draconic Augment Rune Icon Draconic Augment Rune are incredibly expensive but can be used for an additional stat boost during progression raiding or the toughest Mythic+ keys.
