Introduction

Hey it's Thaner, a healer main for the Method raid team. I've been playing WoW since late vanilla and I have raided ever since then. Outside of raiding I love to play high end mythic plus keys on whatever class is meta for the current season. My personal motto is to do dmg first then heal!

What has changed

9.1.5 Restoration Shaman Changes

Going into 9.1.5, resto shaman has not received any class/tuning changes except for one conduit buff.

Conduit changes

Kyrian Elysian Dirge effect increased by 50%.

This change mostly affects the M+ environment. Thanks to the conduit buff, I expect a 5-10% ST DPS increase but it depends on the fight.

Class strengths & weaknesses

Strengths

Weaknesses

  • Have to sacrifice healing in order to deal damage.
  • Mediocre tank healing and no external cooldowns for tanks.
  • No immunity available.
  • Loses a lot of value if the raid can’t stack up.
