Updates will be made after raid progress is finished and more accurate information is available.

Interface

An interface is extremely personal but I highly recommend the addons below.

  • Grid2 / Vuhdo - This is vital as a resto druid as you’re able to increase frame size and create additional slots to make all HoTs visible.
  • BigWigs - Boss ability timers - absolutely necessary to perform at the top level.
  • Exorsus Raid Tools - Displays timings for externals and other healers CDs.
  • WeakAuras - Gives you extreme customization over your UI and making information much easier to display.

Macros

Spell Mouseover Macro

All abilities can be used as a mouseover macro. The example below is an Innervate Mouseover Macro. If you replace ‘Innervate’ with any ability name it will cast the ability you have typed on the target your mouse is currently over. I currently have all friendly targeted abilities on a mouseover macro; they are incredibly useful for healers.

#showtooltip
/cast [@mouseover,exists][] Innervate

Efflorescence Cursor Macro

There are also some great cast at cursor macros. If you use this macro instead of having to press the spell and then press again for the location it’ll instantly just summon the spell where your cursor is, so in this example, it would be Efflorescence.

#showtooltip Efflorescence
/cast [@cursor] Efflorescence

Weakauras

This WA package is extremely handy to use with some amazing features in it. https://wago.io/pu2-0x_Aw

As you can see from the picture above, this package has some handy things in it, it has an efflorescence tracker to show when it expires (it will grey out if you don't have one out). It has an Incarnation tracker so you can track how long is left before your tree form runs out. It’ll track and show you when you’re in stealth to make sure you can skip past packs easier.

It also has other stuff like an Abundance tracker to show how many Rejuvenations you have out. You can move each icon and WA in the package as you see fit but this is extremely handy to have.

If this package isn’t your ‘cup of tea’ you can always look on Wago for a great plethora of WA options and needs https://wago.io/weakauras/classes/druid/restoration
