Improving your mana management is one of the number one ways to improve as a healer and you’ll notice your numbers skyrocket if you manage it correctly. We’re going to look at how efficient each of our spells are so we know which ones to cast more and which to cast less. We’ll also look at mana restoring trinkets, traits and potions.
Note: This was a preview article, but has been updated for the current patch. Some references will still read as originally written, but information is accurate. It’s time. The Shadowlands are here. Grab your 34 slot bag, delete the last corrupted items from your inventory, pick a levelling spec and join us. The following FAQ will focus on quick, accurate answers. There’s more depth to […]
Last reviewed 23 February. Shadowlands has a lot of new systems that we’ll be interacting with from day one. Conduits are similar to BFA’s Essences, but much easier to obtain. You can get them at multiple levels and they drop from a variety of content types. Whichever Soulbind Tree you choose (we’ll get to that in a different article) will have a number of different Conduit […]
Corruption is dead. Bring on the Shadowlands. Resto Druid is set to receive some moderate changes in 9.0 but the spec mostly plays the same and you shouldn’t feel in unfamiliar territory when the patch drops. In raid we are still cooldown focused, with incredible versatility. Our strengths around 1-2 target healing are also exemplified by upcoming legendary effects. It’s too soon to see where we’ll […]
Last Reviewed: 23 March. Last Changed: 9 March for patch 9.0.5. One of Shadowlands major features is the addition of craftable legendaries using mats pulled from the depths of Torghast. This time around you only get to wear one at a time. We don’t have precise details on how long they’ll take to craft just yet but given the large power increases they offer you […]
Patch 8.3 will not go down in history as a hall of fame Druid patch. Our raid azerite is poor, a justified Mythic+ nerf takes ~2% off our raid throughput and the Disc / Glimmer front-runners were barely touched. More positively, our utility will see some use in Ny’alotha and the damage patterns suit Druid well. They also do a round of tuning after Heroic […]
8.2 is upon us. Find out which Essences are best, how to get started in Nazjatar, what the professions update means for you and how the new trinkets fare. Quick-fire FAQ included for all of those small questions that have been eating away at you.
Read about the Resto Druid 8.1 changes including spell tuning, new azerite traits and more.
2k20 Update: This article was written almost two years ago now. Before Azerite had more than one outer ring, before Essences and Corruption, when our Regrowths averaged 20k a piece. G’huun was our end boss and Infested plagued every dungeon. Hell, the Germination build wasn’t even quite dead yet. Requirements change over time and in the case of healing we usually end up facing burstier […]
