Below you'll find information on the gems, enchants, and consumables you should be using as a Restoration Druid. In most cases, you should be using whatever corresponds to your lowest secondary stat, but you can find more details below.
If you have any questions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or contact me on Twitter @PrestonDvorak.
The weapon enchant you pick should correspond to your lowest secondary stat.
Early on in the expansion, I expected Siphoning to be the go-to enchant, but after testing in raids that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm keeping it here as a possible option in the future.
The ring enchant you pick should correspond to your lowest secondary stat.
The secondary stat gems you pick should correspond to your lowest secondary stat.
Much like with gems and enchants, you should use the food that corresponds to your lowest secondary stat.
Use a Battle Potion of Intellect ~1 second before an encounter starts to help DPS before healing is needed. Alternatively, you can also use this during an encounter for a boost to your throughput if you won't need to use a mana potion.
