Just wanted to start a thread for people to suggest best talents / pvp talents / artifact weapon building etc. for Restoration Shaman.


Curious to get everyone's thoughts/ideas.

How viable will Resto will be in Legion?

I expect resto to be quite strong, possibly one of the best pvp healers along with druids this xpac.

Cheers

I see resto's build as not having many PVP options with the standard talent tree.

Earthgrab could be ok depending on what comp you are playing with and against.

No idea how the ancestral protection totem goes in arena (seems weird and probably not viable)

I don't think cloudburst can compete with Echo either

The last lot of pvp talents i think is too hard to call at this stage.

I also like Voodoo Mastery and will depend on who you are playing with or against

The tier 3 talents will depend on comps as well

Ive played a hell alot of beta, mained enhance since TBC, and fuc'ked that idea right off, enhance is unbelievably bad, you die before you even get flametounge frostbrand up. Played some resto and you die instantly but live far longer than all the other specs, the most enjoyment I got was from ele but you still did 0 dmg cause they nerfed the hard casting talent, I feel ele will be good with caster cleaves such as LSD. I feel resto sham will be mediocre and stronger later on. It literally all depends on how good rogue mage is and cleaves as to what makes resto

I have been using this in Skrims, if you are about to die, drop it and then reincarnate with 20%HP, its basically like a battle rez that you need to get off before you die.

I feel Skyfury may be good and could be used like a mini heal boost.

Also after watching Cdew play on beta Swelling Waves seems insane, it basically doubles healing surge healing on yourself, which obviously with the cleave meta that will no doubt exist, that should make it a lot easier to deal with.

Also I feel Earth Shield would have to be the go too, 20% DMG reduction is basically a permanent barkskin.

Earthgrab has actually been working wonders for me against melee cleaves. And you will get trained a lot, as always, by melee teams.
It's also much more reliable for assisting with gap closers.
I've played RLS and RMS a lot and the Lightning Surge Totem messes up stun DR for the Rogue. You want the Rogue to be able to get full CS/Kidney and focus CS/Kidney off.

(Although the Surge stun -> Hex combo is obviously strong.)

I think Gust of Wind is very underwhelming. Been using Graceful Spirit over it. A stronger talent overall.

I think Earth Shield is always the best, 20% dmg reduction is just too good.

Keep in mind that Skyfury totem gives u 30% more critdmg AND critheal which boosts ur healingoutput by a lot, with healing surge having more than 50% crit chance.

Lightning surge totem is really good right now but will get worse when people adapt to it. Earthgrab Totem is a decent alternative against some comps. Voodo totem is insanely bad for cc'ing people but i wonder if it could be useful against meelecleaves when u just put it down on you and the meeles are just hex'd if they want to hit u, but i still have to test it.

I really like Earthen Shield totem, u just have to explain it to your mates so they dont run out of it, i'm not a huge fan of the Ancestral Protection Totem, if u know u gonna die the next seconds (which is most of the times only against meele cleaves) i dont think u are fine when u get ressed with 20% its more likely that u just die instantly again.

Not sure why u pick torrent, riptide is really underperforming right now, i think unleash is way better.

Vim and Vigor is always better i think when u know they wont go on you (e.g. against godcomp), because 20% more healing is better than 20% more haste imo, if ur not sure if they hit u defender of the weak is your choice
