Restoration 25man Raid Build for Patch 3.1 (with glyphs)

This post is the ultimate result of beta, ptr and live testing over months now. I guess most of you will have their leveling speccs already. The following specc represents one of the best speccs for healing easy to medium difficulty content.

Note that this specc already has some mandatory glyphs attached. Feel free to add the Glyph of Earth Shield or a situational one to the set, e.g. Glyph of Healing Stream Totem.

Restoration PvE 25 Raid Spec 3.1
Advantages: Maximized healing throughput
Disadvantages: Only moderate mana regeneration and single target healing capabilities. lacks devensive talents, too.
What do you need: Gear featuring lots of crit, haste and +spower
Group requirements: Healers for the main tanks and replenishment
Summary: This will most likely be the best pve restoration specc for large raiding groups in easy to medium difficulty content.

*UPDATE* As some readers have mentioned: This specc is NOT suitable for raiding Ulduar hard mode encounters! The use of a slightly adjusted glyph set and adding survival talents such as Nature’s Guardian is highly recommended!

    Better Glyphs, HS actually ends up more hps than earthliving, the es/ch are an ez pick for anyone.
    Nature Guardian>elemental weapon with 3.1.
    Ulduar promises alot of challenge, having a “HO SHIT NG SAVED ME” proc will save the day more than having +45 healing on the rng proc earthliving which ends up in overheal 80% of the time.

  3. time will tell if the HS glyph may be used so efficently that it will overthrow the EW one. i see positioning problems in most fights because the raid is spread out widely.

  4. I’m really just a earthliving hater, they’ve been getting rid of most of the rng procs, am hoping they see the light and rework it too.
    It’s just an awful heal mechanic and ends up with ridiculous overheal %

  5. sadly this is is very true. if the incoming raid damage is peaks and not constant most of the heal will tick into nothing. time will tell if HS totem is of any use in ulduar.

  6. mm… cognitively :)

  7. If you want more survivability move the 3 points from weapons to nature’s guardian!

  8. [...] Talent build improved and added mandatory glyphs. For a 3.1 build check this newer post! Restoration PvE Raid Spec Advantages: Very high crit percentage and nearly maxed throughput [...]
