Resto Druid Enchants, Gems, Consumables

Patch 7.1.5 Updated
Feb 22, 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 Ancient Priestess currently the strongest option all-around after 7.1.5
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

Binding of Haste
Word of Haste as a cheaper alternative


Use one Saber's Eye of Intellect and then Quick Dawnlight in other sockets.

You can use Quick Azsunite as a cheaper alternative.


Flask of the Whispered Pact

Azshari Salad 
Suramar Surf and Turf  as the second cheapest option
Deep-Fried Mossgill  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
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.
