This guide covers all the essential parts of character optimization needed to maximize your Healing in Raids as Restoration Druid.

To navigate between guide sections use the top dropdown or buttons in the bottom.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the data come from?

Our guides are based on statistics. We use algorithms to process thousands of World of Warcraft Raid Logs (from Warcraft Logs) every day. By analyzing this Big Data from top parses we are able to precisely calculate what are World's Best Players using now.

How to use this guide?

We evaluate each item by their Maximum Healing and Popularity metrics. If unsure what to choose, the safest option is to pick the most popular one. Also, be sure to use our boss filter when optimizing for different Raid Bosses.

Why is resto druid so good?

  • Adaptable Healing: Skilled in both single-target and area healing.
  • Mobility: Capable of healing effectively while moving.
  • Utility Skills: Offers damage mitigation, crowd control, and combat resurrection.
  • Powerful Cooldowns: Commands spells like Tranquility for intense healing scenarios.

What is the best embellishment for Druid resto?

Enchantments

Prioritize enchantments that amplify your primary stat, Intellect, as it directly escalates your healing abilities. Enchantments focusing on mana replenishment or increasing haste are also advantageous.

Gems

Choose gems that elevate intellect, haste, or mastery (which enhances your healing-over-time spells) for a significant impact on your performance.

Consumables

Employ flasks and potions that either boost your primary stat or offer extra mana regeneration, especially for demanding situations like raid encounters or high-tier Mythic+ dungeons.

Trinkets

Opt for trinkets that grant extra healing power, mana restoration, or provide immediate healing boosts, thereby elevating your role as a healer.

What weapon should resto druid use?

Restoration Druid should select a weapon that complements their healing role. The primary options are:

  1. Staff

    Staves often provide healing bonuses, intellect, and useful stats for healers.

  2. One-Handed Mace with Off-Hand

    This combination offers flexibility in stat distribution. The mace can have good healing stats, and the off-hand can add utility.

  3. Dagger with Off-Hand

    Similar to the mace, a dagger paired with an off-hand item can work well, especially if the dagger has healing-friendly stats.

Always prioritize gear that boosts healing and mana regeneration.

What is the best race for a Druid healer?

When it comes to selecting the perfect race for a Druid healer in World of Warcraft, several factors come into play, including your faction (Alliance or Horde), your preferred playstyle, and the racial abilities that align with your healing style. Here's a comprehensive breakdown:

Alliance
Night Elf
  • Shadowmeld: This skill proves invaluable for evading threats or resetting encounters.
  • Quickness: Offers a slight boost to dodge chances, enhancing your overall survivability.
  • Nature Resistance: Provides minor protection against nature damage.
  • Wisp Spirit: Grants increased movement speed while dead, making your journey more convenient.
Worgen
  • Darkflight: Equips you with a sprint ability, aiding in rapid positioning.
  • Viciousness: Increases critical strike chance, bolstering your healing potential.
  • Aberration: Confers resistance against Shadow and Nature damage, enhancing your durability in specific scenarios.
Horde
Tauren
  • War Stomp: A stunning ability useful for interrupting enemy spells or creating distance.
  • Endurance: Boosts your health pool, increasing your overall survivability.
  • Nature Resistance: Similar to Night Elves, provides minor defense against nature damage.
  • Cultivation: Offers slightly faster Herbalism and additional herbs, beneficial for herbalists.
Troll
  • Berserking: Accelerates casting speed, particularly advantageous for burst healing.
  • Regeneration: Augments health regeneration, providing a passive healing boost.
  • Beast Slaying: Enhances damage against beasts, primarily beneficial for DPS roles but can have situational advantages.
Zandalari Troll (if available in your game version)
  • Regeneratin': Boasts a potent self-healing ability, valuable in various situations.
  • Pterrordax Swoop: Grants a slow fall ability, situationally useful.
  • Embrace of the Loa: Allows you to select a Loa blessing, with some blessings catering to healing needs.

Is resto druid good in dragonflight?

Restoration Druids are considered a strong choice for a healing class. Their performance in raids and overall effectiveness can be summarized as follows:

Performance in Raids:
  • Restoration Druids are ranked as an S-Tier healer class, indicating top-tier performance in raid settings.
  • They are known for their consistent healing output and versatile toolkit, allowing them to adapt to both raid healing and spot healing needs.
Popularity and Meta:

Despite their high ranking and capabilities, Restoration Druids are noted for seeing relatively low play and lower healing numbers compared to their peers in the Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope raiding tier list.

General Viability:

It's important to note that WoW has never been perfectly balanced, and some classes will inevitably be better than others in specific high-end content. However, Restoration Druids' position in the meta can change with future tuning and class adjustments.

In summary, Restoration Druids are considered a top-tier choice for healing, particularly in raids, due to their strong and consistent healing capabilities and a versatile set of talents. However, their actual usage in high-end content like world-first raids may vary, and their position in the meta can evolve with future game updates.
