3. Consumables for Restoration Shaman

Before every fight, you should use Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power as your pre-pot, as it helps with throughput healing and DPS and lasts a full minute. You should be using Ancient Mana Potion Icon Ancient Mana Potion during the fight as a means of restoring Mana, as it will greatly assist your ability to sustain through a fight. If Mana is not an issue, you should instead use a second Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power.

Flask of the Whispered Pact Icon Flask of the Whispered Pact should be used as you flask of choice.

You should eat Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the +22 Intellect buff (or the cheaper Hearty Feast Icon Hearty Feast if you cannot afford the +22 food).

Since Patch 7.3, Healthstones now heal for 25% of the user's maximum health. This means that players should always use Healthstones over Astral Healing Potion Icon Astral Healing Potions whenever available.

If you can afford it, you should also use augment runes (which work in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons). Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune is the cheap rune with a one-time use. Lightforged Augment Rune Icon Lightforged Augment Rune costs 40,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
