Restoration Druid Guide

Updated 17 hours, 45 minutes ago by Preston.

Welcome to my Restoration Druid guide! To give you a brief background on myself: I've been raiding as a Restoration Druid for over 13-years, since the days of Rank 4 Healing Touch and Decursive mashing! I enjoy Druid's heal over time centric style and their high mobility.

This guide is targeted at new and intermediate players. I will try to lay everything out in plain words while leaving the math and theories to the people that want them. Feedback is greatly appreciated! Feel free to leave comments at the bottom of any guide page, contact me, or tweet @PrestonDvorak.
