Azerite Traits

Spec Specific Azerite Traits

Azerite traits rotation changes

Rampant Growth - This trait applies the Regrowth hot effect to the target with Lifebloom on them so you should be attempting to place your Regrowth onto other targets for maximum value.

Recommended Azerite Traits

Raiding Traits

Autumn Leaves - This is a potent trait that doesn’t require any focus or maintenance aim for only one of these for raiding.

Rampant Growth - You should aim for only one of these as it drops off in power heavily after that.

Lively Spirit - Another trait you should only run one of as the mana return doesn’t stack.

Treacherous Covenant - This trait drops from the Battle of Dazar'alor azerite pieces and is currently our best trait. Aim for this where possible.

Bonded Souls - Used to be the monster trait for us but following the 40% nerf it’s now just a filler once you have the traits above.

Dungeon Traits

Grove Tending - Really strong tank healing, also applies a hot which gives you an additional mastery stack on the target. Only take one of this trait.

Incite the Pack - Good mastery proc also buffs two of your party members.

Tradewinds - High mastery proc, the best stat for strictly healing in M+.

High Noon - Sunfire is usually our highest damage in M+, increasing the radius will allow you to save GCDs applying it to those adds you missed.

Treacherous Covenant - Slightly weaker than the traits above for M+ but still a decent pick.

Bonded Souls - Used to be the monster trait for us but following the 40% nerf it’s now just a filler once you have the traits above.

Lively Spirit - Now innervate no longer affects cat form abilities you’re able to use this trait to get a huge intellect buff.
