Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Intellect > Critical Strike = Versatility > Mastery > Haste

Stat Outline

Critical Strike: Critical Strikes give you mana back due to the Resurgence passive and also increased output when you land a crit.

Versatility: Increases your healing and damage by an amount and reduces the damage you take by half of that.

Mastery: Increases your healing done to targets based on their current hp, where the lower their health the more healing you do.

Haste: Unfortunately we don’t have many abilities that scale well with haste, which leaves this stat very lacklustre for now.

In Castle Nathria a lot of the gear is Crit & Mastery so you will want to get a lot of Versatility outside of raid gear.


Pandaren - Gives the most output due to the double effect of the food buff.

Goblin - The Goblin racial ability, Rocket jump, can be very good on certain fights, but i didn’t feel that it makes or breaks any fight in Castle Nathria.

Other than the two above; Troll, Orc, Mag’har Orc and Vulpera are also all viable races for Resto Shaman.


Weapon - Celestial Guidance

Chest - Eternal Bounds

Bracers - Eternal Intellect

Cloak - Fortified Leech

Rings - Tenet of Critical Strike


Crit Gem: Deadly Jewel Cluster


Flask: Spectral Flask of Power

Food: If no feast available use Spinefin Souffle and Fries

Mana Potion: Potion of Sacrifical Anima provides more mana back than Potion of Spiritual Clarity if used on 4 Chain Heals.
