General Information

1.

Restoration Shaman Overview

Restoration Shaman is an extremely flexible specialization that shines when healing groups of clumped players. They have a variety of unique tools to deal with otherwise deadly influxes of damage, such as Spirit Link Totem Icon Spirit Link Totem.

Because Chain Heal Icon Chain Heal has no cooldown, Restoration Shamans are one of the few healers that can area-of-effect heal continuously when dangerous, unexpected damage happens, a situation also perfectly suited to their Mastery effect: Mastery: Deep Healing Icon Mastery: Deep Healing, and to external Mana tools such as Innervate Icon Innervate.

Shamans can be quite mobile with Spiritwalker's Grace Icon Spiritwalker's Grace, Spirit Walk Icon Spirit Walk, and Gust of Wind Icon Gust of Wind, and deal good damage when focusing on it, but for the most part, cannot heal at the same time as they deal damage, which is one of the major weaknesses of the specialization.

Also, in order to properly play a healing role, you will need more than just class-specific information. To better understand healing in general, we recommend that you read our healing guide.

2.

Strengths and Weaknesses

V Strengths
  • +Great healing, especially when your group can stack inside Healing Rain Icon Healing Rain;
  • +Can often cast while moving with Spiritwalker's Grace Icon Spiritwalker's Grace and jump around with Gust of Wind Icon Gust of Wind;
  • +Unique, powerful healing tools such as Spirit Link Totem Icon Spirit Link Totem and Ancestral Protection Totem Icon Ancestral Protection Totem;
  • +Excellent survivability with Astral Shift Icon Astral Shift, Earth Elemental Icon Earth Elemental, and passives such as Brimming with Life Icon Brimming with Life;
  • +Great non-healing tools such as Reincarnation Icon Reincarnation, Wind Rush Totem Icon Wind Rush Totem, Wind Shear Icon Wind Shear, Purge Icon Purge, Tremor Totem Icon Tremor Totem, and Capacitor Totem Icon Capacitor Totem.
X Weaknesses
  • -No teleport or immunity capabilities;
  • -No raid buff or significant tank cooldowns;
  • -Cannot deal damage at the same time as it heals;
  • -Loses healing potential in situations that force a group to spread;
  • -Non-cooldown healing is Mana inefficient or tied to high cast times.
2.1.

Is Restoration Shaman Viable in Dragonflight?

While the playstyle in Dragonflight has been enjoyable with the return of Ancestral Guidance Icon Ancestral Guidance, Gust of Wind Icon Gust of Wind, and the new talent trees, the lack of a raid buff and occasionally poor tuning of Restoration Shaman has limited its participation in Raids and Mythic+.

Shaman is currently hovering around the bottom of the pack in desirability and strength when compared to the other healers. You would usually bring a Mistweaver Monk, Discipline Priest and Holy Paladin to a group before considering a Restoration Shaman, at which point it would be a decent final pick.

3.

Leveling a Restoration Shaman

If you want to play a Restoration Shaman but currently do not have one at max level, you can check out our leveling guide for tips on your journey.

Once you reach the max level, it can be somewhat overwhelming to completely change the way you play by suddenly implementing a large number of addons in a short space of time, especially if they have a heavy visual impact on your UI. We recommend using some of the more basic addons recommended on our Addons page below while leveling so that you have more time to get used to them during the easier phases of playing your class.

4.

Basics of Restoration Shaman Gameplay

Restoration Shaman, like any healer, is all about using your abilities strategically. Rather than a fixed rotation, you will be using your flexible spell kit to adapt and overcome whatever the game throws at you.

Cooldown abilities, such as Riptide Icon Riptide, Unleash Life Icon Unleash Life and Healing Rain Icon Healing Rain are very efficient, and thus important to use as many times as possible over the course of a fight, while the likes of Healing Wave Icon Healing Wave and Chain Heal Icon Chain Heal can be thrown in at any time they are needed, as long as you still have Mana left.

If you are an absolute beginner to the spec, but would like to learn the basic fundamentals of the class, we recommend looking through the Spell Summary first, as well as the Easy Mode page linked below.

If you are already somewhat familiar with Restoration Shamans, you can head straight to the Talents and Rotation pages to jump right into more detailed information.

How to Gear Up a Restoration Shaman

Gearing can be hard to pin down due to the huge number of variables that can affect your character's performance. You can find information on how best to gear a Restoration Shaman on our dedicated gearing page, which includes the current Best in Slot from this tier.

Once you have started to gear, you will need to make sure that you have the appropriate consumables, gems, enchants, and more. We have a dedicated page for this, as shown below, as well as the stats page, where you can find more information on the possibility of a changing stat priority and the necessary changes you may need to make for consumables.

6.

Restoration Shaman End-Game

Starting off can look very different from end-game pursuits. Our Mythic+ Dungeon and upcoming Raiding guides can guide you to performing as well as possible, regardless of your favored focus in end-game content.

7.

Restoration Shaman DPS

While you will be primarily focused on healing, being able to consistently deal damage when healing is not required is what separates good players from great players. Learn more on this subject in our specialized page below!
