PVE WotLK Restoration Shaman Healer Guide (Short)

Wrath Shaman Guide


Welcome to our PVE Restoration Shaman guide for WoW WotLK. This guide will show you what you need to know to play the Shaman class as Restoration. If you follow this build you should be at the top of the Healing meters in no time!


This is the standard Restoration Shaman build. If you have another Resto Shaman or a Holy Priest with Ancestral Healing, then you can drop it for Elemental Weapons and Cleanse Spirit.

Resto Shaman Build


Major Glyphs

Other viable options depending on your gear.

Minor Glyphs


Gems can change based on your build, equipment and caps. You may need to adjust your gems to account for your gear.


You may need to adjust your enchants based on your gear but these are the standard enchants.

Stat Priority

  1. Spell Power
  2. Haste
  3. Critical Strike
  4. Mp5

Spell power is your main stat because improving it significantly increases your healing.

Haste can reduce your global cooldown to 1 second. The haste soft cap for a resto shaman is 38.7% (1269 rating). This will reduce the cast time of your Lesser Healing Wave to 1 second. You shouldn’t go over 1400 haste.

Critical Strike rating actually does a lot more than just increase your chance to crit with healing spells. It regenerates mana thanks to Improved Water Shield it also increases your chance to proc Ancestral Awakening and improves the chance of 4pT10 with Chain Heal.


Setup before the pull

Healing during the fight

Low on mana

If you find yourself out of mana, cast Mana Tide. You can also ask a Priest for Hymn of Hope or a Druid for Innervate.
