Resto Druid Enchants, Gems, Consumables

Patch 7.3.2 Updated
November 24, 2017

Below you'll find information on the gems, enchants, and consumables you should be using as a Restoration Druid. Most of them are straightforward and align with our Stat Priority.

If you have any questions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or contact me on Twitter @PrestonDvorak.



Mark of the Trained Soldier best for high-mastery builds (T21)
Mark of the Ancient Priestess best for non-mastery builds (T20/T19/other)
Mark of the Claw can be nice if you're also needing to DPS a lot
Mark of the Quick is a cheaper alternative


Binding of Intellect
Word of Intellect as a cheaper alternative


Raid Healing

I recommend these enchants if you're primarily healing raid content.

Binding of Mastery
Word of Mastery as a cheaper alternative


In all cases, you should use one Saber's Eye of Intellect. The epic gems that grant 200 of a secondary stat are good, but still weaker than 200 intellect for Restoration Druids.

Raid Healing

I recommend these gems if you're primarily healing raid content.

Masterful Argulite
Masterful Shadowruby as a cheaper alternative
Masterful Queen's Opal as the cheapest option



Flask of the Whispered Pact


In any situation, the following feasts are best, but if you don't have access to the feasts, I've included individual options further below.

Lavish Suramar Feast
Hearty Feast as a cheaper option

Raid Healing

I recommend this food if you're primarily healing raid content.

Nightborne Delicacy Platter
Barracuda Mrglgagh as the second cheapest option
Pickled Stormray as the cheapest option

Mana Potion

Leytorrent Potion on encounters with enough downtime to make full use of it
Ancient Mana Potion on encounters with no reliable downtime, or as a cheaper alternative

Health Potion

Ancient Healing Potion
Healthstone (created by Warlocks)

Augment Rune

Lightforged Augment Rune / Defiled Augment Rune


Use a Potion of Prolonged Power ~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.
