Season 3 has introduced many Class Changes, aswell as a new Tier Set, new Embellishments and more.

  • Healing Stream healing increased by 20 percent.
  • Healing Surge healing increased by 30 percent.
  • Healing Wave healing increased by 30 percent.
  • Primordial Wave replicates Healing Wave at 40 percent effectiveness (was 60 percent).

  • Riptide’s initial heal increased by 30 percent.
  • Unleash Life healing increased by 40 percent.
    • Developers’ note: With Riptide, Healing Surge, and Healing Wave doing a lot more healing, Ancestral Awakening’s power was increased beyond intended levels.
  • Ancestral Awakening heals for 10/20 percent of healing done (was 15/30 percent).
  • Ancestral Awakening now prefers to heal injured players instead of always healing the lowest health player.
  • Primordial Wave can no longer be used to damage an enemy target, it is now only a healing spell for Restoration Shaman.
  • Chain Heal healing increased by 20 percent.
  • Chain Heal now costs 5.6 percent of base mana (was six percent).

Stat Priority in Patch 10.2

General Stat Priority for Restoration Shaman with our Build is:

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


  • Intellect is your primary stat, meaning that Itemlevel is superior in most cases. Higher Itemlevel will also increase your Stamina and Armor that you gain.
  • Critical Strike increases the chance for your abilities and spells to deal double damage.
  • Haste reduces your global cooldown, your time to cast spells, and reduces the cooldown of many abilities.
  • Versatility grants you a flat damage increase, but also a damage decrease for half of its value.
  • Mastery increases your healing from your spells, depending on the missing health of your target.


The further we are getting into the expansion, the effects of diminishing returns start to limit your effective gain of your secondary stats. After reaching 30% (by rating) of any given stat, you will start to receive a penalty that reduces the gain from more of the same stat over this treshold.

Stat priority can differ on every character. Make sure to simulate yourself on Raidbots get the perfect results for you.
