Manaflask has outdone themselves this time with an excellent and in-depth interview about the resto shaman class, both past and present. The interview features:
Some of the more interesting parts of the interview are their thoughts about the changes to resto shaman, especially the new totem cooldown format from the previous “drop them and forget them”. Consensus seems to be that Firelands was the worst tier for resto shamans – while some fights were stacky stacky, others were just a mad chaos of run around with your Spiritwalker’s Grace on CD otherwise riptide and hope for the best.
They also discuss Deep Healing (aka resto shaman mastery) and they definitely aren’t fans of it. However, the implications a change could have on PVP is noted.
If you are a fan of weak auras, they talk about weak auras usage (and here is the link to Sonie’s resto shaman weak auras)
If you are a resto shaman, or just want to see where the class is these days, this is a must-read. They really nailed a lot of the thoughts I have had on this class, and I loved the trip through memory lane from where resto shamans started.
