Restoration Druid Stat Weights and Gearing

Updated 3 weeks, 5 days ago for patch 8.2 by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers the stats that are relevant for a Restoration Druid and what kind of things you should look for when gearing up. As a general rule, it’s almost always better to go with the higher item level piece of gear. Feedback is always welcome. You can leave a comment at the bottom of the page, contact me, or tweet @PrestonDvorak.

Stat Priority and Weights

The priorities below correspond to the different builds on the Talents and Builds page. Where are the stat weights? Now, more than ever, generalized stat weights are unnecessary. I made a case for them in Legion due to the high value of secondary stats, but in Battle for Azeroth item level is really the sole indicator of an upgrade outside of some Azerite Armor Traits (something stat weights won't factor in). If you want stat weights for yourself, I recommend the Additional Resources section below.

Raiding

Cooldowns Build

This build favors talents that don't add extra heal over time effects, making Mastery slightly weaker than all other stats.

  1. Intellect
  2. Haste = Critical Strike = Versatility = Leech >= Mastery

Heal Over Time Build

This build facors talents that add more healing over time effects, bringing Mastery back up the list.

  1. Intellect
  2. Haste = Mastery = Leech = Versatility = Critical Strike

General Raid Gearing Notes

  • Always use your highest item level piece while trying to keep a relative balance between secondary stats. Use enchants, gems, and consumables to help keep the balance.
  • Leech is worth about 5 item levels when comparing pieces.
  • Using better Azerite Armor traits can also be worth 5-10 item levels (i.e. comparing a piece with mostly above average traits to one with mostly average or below average traits).
  • Reference the Best in Slot lists below to see which Azerite Armor pieces you should be looking for.

Mythic+

The Mythic+ priority will favor Mastery slightly over other secondary stats, but you should still use your higher item level pieces or best Azerite Armor Traits. Leech also loses a bit of its usefulness in Mythic+ as a lot of your healing will be going into the tank and the need to save mana overall is much lower.

  1. Intellect
  2. Mastery >= Haste =  Versatility = Critical Strike >= Leech

Additional Resources

Use the tools below to get stat weights specifically for your current gear and item level, which will be more accurate than the general weights provided above.

HealerStatWeights - An addon that shows real-time stat weights based on the current encounter you're fighting.

Twig It - A robust spreadsheet that allows you to get stat weights based on your current stats and healing breakdown for different fights, using WarcraftLogs data.

Stat Explanations

Intellect increases the power of all your spells. This includes how much healing your spells heal for and how much damage your damaging spells do.

Haste decreases the cast time of your spells, increases how frequently your heal over time effects heal, and decreases your global cooldown. Your global cooldown affects how quickly you can cast spells that have no cast time, such as Rejuvenation. Getting a low global cooldown is essential as a Restoration Druid because our main healing spell does not have a cast time.

Critical Strike increases the chance of both your healing and damage spells being critical strikes. A critical heal will heal for twice as much as a non-critical heal, this includes heals from healing over time effects. This equates to free healing, but you can't reliably control when it happens.

Mastery increases the amount your heal over time effects heal for based on the total heal over time effects you have on the target. For example, if your mastery is 10% and you have one heal over time effect on a player, that heal over time will be healing for 10% more. If you have two heal over time effects on a player they will both be healing for 20% more. There is no cap on this effect, so the more heal over time effects that are active the more powerful it will be.

Versatility increases all healing and damage you do by a flat percentage. It also decreases all damage you take. This is similar to our Mastery, but without the chance to multiply with more healing effects on a target.

Best in Slot List, Bosses to Bonus Roll

With the changes to power gains between item levels in Battle for Azeroth, item level should once again be the primary indicator of an upgrade. This will make Best in Slot lists slightly more useful than in Legion, however, there will still be situations that stray from this list. Always use your best judgement when picking gear!

Raiding - +

The gear below is relevant for all builds when raiding, except where noted in parenthesis. The talent builds noted correspond to those on the Talents and Builds page. Gear from your weekly Mythic+ cache should be 5 item levels lower than the current Mythic-level raid, and Azerite Armor from the weekly cache will be the same item level as the current Mythic-level raid. This is why you see some dungeon items as best in slot. I've tried to always include one Mythic+ item and one Raid item to keep things more flexible.

Information on selecting Azerite Armor Traits can be found on the Azerite Armor page.
