5. Gameplay & Rotations

Use Water Shield on yourself before the fight, this will be your main mana regeneration source. Apply Earthliving Weapon on your weapon and choose 4 needed totems depending on the classes you have in your party. Also, apply Earth Shield on your Tank.

The fight started. Use Chain Heal, and Healing Wave on those who got very low on their hp. Don't forget to use Nature's Swiftness and Tidal Force if the raid has taken a lot of damage. Properly replace your totems if needed. Update shields on you and the tank.

If low on mana - then use Mana Tide. Or you can ask for Hymn of Hope from a Priest or Innervate from a Druid.

6. Add-ons

Add-ons improve your gameplay by a lot. It is necessary to utilize add-ons, since they play a vital role in your performance, whether you are in a raid, arena or at the auction house.
