TBC Classic Restoration Shaman Guide

Introduction

    Restoration Shamans excel at raid-wide healing thanks to the power of
    Chain Heal
    . The utility provided by
    Mana Tide Totem
    and the rest of their totems is a great addition to a healer and caster groups in raids.

TBC Restoration Shaman Rotation

    One of the unique things about healing is downranking heals. We mention some specific ranks of certain heals below as a starting point, but finding out which ranks work best will be up to you. The ranks you choose will change based on each boss depending on the situation and length of the encounter, as well your target and how much health they are missing.

Single Target

  1. Maintain
    Water Shield
    .
  2. Maintain
    Earth Shield
    on one of the tanks.
  3. Maintain totems that will benefit your group the most.
  4. Use
    Mana Tide Totem
    when everyone in your group will benefit the most from it.
  5. Cast
    Chain Heal R4
    or
    Chain Heal R5
    . This is your spam heal.
  6. Use
    Nature's Swiftness
    with
    Healing Wave R12
    for a big instant heal.
  7. Cast
    Lesser Healing Wave
    if you need to heal someone faster than a
    Chain Heal
    cast (2.5 sec).

AoE

  1. Same as single target.

TBC Restoration Shaman Aldor or Scryer

    We recommend going Aldor as a Restoration Shaman in TBC Classic. The Aldor shoulder enchant,
    Greater Inscription of Faith
    , is considerably stronger than the Scryer
    Greater Inscription of the Oracle
    . Scryer does provide an early weapon, the
    Seer's Cane
    , but it falls behind in the long run.
