The Egregious Guide to Classic Resto Shaman
@Egregious Hi mate, i was wondering what your thoughts on tailoring and enchanting are for a resto shaman? Seems that we use a bit of cloth armour, so it seem to make sense. Plus getting lots of drops from dungeons as i level could be a good way to help with Enchanting.
@Kachin25 Hey, man. Both of those professions would be fine for a Resto Shaman. Professions in Vanilla are all about accessibility to resources and your personal interests. I personally go Herbalism or Enchanting and Engineering for PvP. Herbalism is a great money maker, most gathering professions are pretty solid for that, and Engineering allows me to do some PvP stuff. Honestly, any profession you pick up will have value to you. Tailoring will have less of an impact on your gameplay than I think you're expecting. From my experience, no profession in Vanilla has a high impact on your play as far as Resto Shaman are concerned.
*Edit: Enchanting is a great profession especially if you intend to do a lot of dungeons.
@Egregious Thanks for that, i pretty much have my professions decided now (tailoring/enchanting).
now i just have to wait till 27th of August to play, only ten weeks...........
Thanks for the great guide!
I have several questions. First, wtf is that thing you recommended as ranged in you phase 1 pre raid bis?
Second why don't you use the totems from the second list in the first one too? Scholomance is available in P1, isn't it? And the last one, do you use the same talents for pvp and if not, what would you change?
- Egan's Blaster is a meme item but the only item you can put in that slot until Phase 5.
- Because totems/relics will not be available until Phase 5.
- 30/0/21. It's a fairly common spec you should be able to find by Googling 30/0/21 Resto/Ele Shaman.
Also, please join the Resto Shaman Discord for future questions, comments, concerns: Shaman Discord
@Egregious First off, amazing guide. I plan to get all of the pre-raid BIS items for phase 1 and use it for MC to get the earthfury set. When phase 2 comes around will the earthfury set still be good or will the pre-raid BIS items for phase 2-6 be better?
You only break T1 when you get 3pc T2 and only on fights in BWL where you're going to utilize CH over HW.
@hep links should all be working now and images are updated
hey man was just wondering what consumables you'd recommend taking to raids in P1, since most of these aren't available until ZG. Thanks, love the content!
Is deep resto (mana tide) absolutely necessary for raid healing, or would you be able to get away with 30/0/21 (pvp spec)?
@Rain-Himebauch Hmm, I currently use these:
Flask of Distilled Wisdom x1
Major Mana Potion x20+
Dark or Demonic Rune x15+
Mighty Troll's Blood Potion x15
Rumsey Rum Black Label x15
Nightfin Soup x20
Restorative Potion x5
Greater Arcane Protection Potion x5
Fire Protection Potion x10
Greater Fire Protection Potion x5
Free Action Potion x5
Limited Invulnerability Potion x5
Noggenfogger Elixir x40+
This is an exhaustive list of what I'm currently using. After Nightfin Soup the consumables listed are to solve encounter mechanic problems like magic and curse on Luci, Gehennas, and Baron, arcane explosion on Shazz, etc. Hope this helps.
@pwnmachine If you want to have the most impact in your raid, yes. If you want to conserve on gold for respecs and have some outworld questing/grinding ability, no. I'll leave answering that question up to you and your raid.
