PVE Restoration Druid Healer Guide WotLK 3.3.5a

Game: Wrath of the Lich King
Content Type: Gaming Guides

Welcome to the Restoration Druid Healer guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Restoration Druid in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, BiS Gear, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

This is a core build. You have 4 points left which you can use anywhere you see fit: Nature’s Grace, Empowered Touch, Natural Perfection and Tranquil Spirit are good options.

The first two are a must-have, the last one you choose yourself

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.

If you choose Insightful Earthsiege Diamond, you will need one Purified Dreadstone to activate it.

Haste -> Spell Power -> Spirit -> Critical Strike -> Intellect

Improving Haste reduces the cooldown of Rejuvenation to 1 second. We need 856 Haste rating combined with Gift of the Earthmother to do it. Next, we have Spell Power that increases the power of our healing spells. Stack it as much as possible.

Not only does Spirit increase our mana regeneration, but it is also partially converted into Spell Power (15%) via the Improved Tree of Life talent. Critical strike rating is a nice thing to have after we have enough Haste since it contributes to our healing with heal crits and via the Living Seed talent. Natural Perfection will provide you with an additional 3% if you choose to take it.

There is definitely a lot more to learn since healers don’t have a strict rotation. These are the very basics that will get you started.

Use Rejuvenation and Lifebloom on the tank from the start. Maintain Lifebloom on the tank and refresh it. If the tank is taking a lot of damage, then let it work its full duration.

Standard AoE combo: Wild Growth -> five Rejuvenation -> Wild Growth -> five Rejuvenation and so on…
Add Regrowth if some players are receiving too much damage and use Swiftmend for instant healing.

Tranquility is used after a massive AoE or when the raid is about to die (combine it with Barkskin if necessary).
