Welcome to Healcraft.net’s Restoration Druid Guide for Best in Slot gearing selection! My name is Lavathing, and I will be this guide’s author. As always, some of the selections below come down to very small mathematical differences, so some of the choices are based on gear availability and my personal discretion.
An In-Depth Look at Haste Breakpoints
There are a lot of choices when it comes to our secondary stats, and many different ways to approach shaman healing. One of the most important is which haste breakpoint you want to sit at, and which of the tier 60 talents you choose. How much spirit to roll with, and how to balance your crit VS mastery are separate issues, and depend on many different factors. For haste however there definitely seem to be a few sweet spots in the haste breakpoint chart. These can drastically change your performance and testing out different setups is one of the best ways to improve as a healer in Heroic Throne of Thunder and beyond.
