#Restoration Druid PvE Healing Rotation & Cooldowns

Below is our guide for prioritizing your abilities optimally. This should help give you a basic understanding of what to do and what's most important to focus on. Each rotation list is more of a "priority list"--in real-time, you'll constantly be determining which ability to use next. Out of all abilities you have available, use the one highest up in the priority list.

#Healing Priority List / Rotation

  1. Lifebloom (Keep on Tank or player taking heavy damage)
  2. Efflorescence (Keep under group of damaged players [typically melee players])
  3. Wild Growth (After/during AoE damage)
  4. Swiftmend (Use on severely injured players)
  5. Cenarion Ward (Use on severely injured players)
  6. Regrowth (With Omen of Clarity procs on severely injured players)
  7. Rejuvenation (On damaged [or soon-to-be damaged] players)
  8. Tranquility or Incarnation: Tree of Life (When highly damaged raid/group)
  9. Flourish (When needing your HoTs boosted. See Note 1)

When not needing to heal, you can unleash your anger on the enemies damaging your dear friends by blasting them with Moonfire, Sunfire and/or Solar Wrath. Rawr.

Note 1: Casting Flourish after Tranquility is ideal as it'll also extend the HoT from Tranquility.

#Important Cooldowns

  • Ironbark Used as major defensive cooldown on targets receiving intense damage.
  • Rebirth Bring back the dead!
  • Tranquility Major group heal. Use at the discretion of your raid/party leader.
