The Resto Shaman T16 tier bonuses have been announced, and Shamans are getting their first healing absorb.
- Item – Shaman T16 Restoration 2P Bonus (New) When Earth Shield heals a target, the target will gain 100% of the amount healed as an absorb.
- Item – Shaman T16 Restoration 4P Bonus (New) Spiritwalker’s Grace will also summon a spiritual version of yourself that will mimic all cast time targeted spells for 15 sec.
The two piece bonus will likely start Earth Shield Wars again (why can’t Blizzard allow double Earth Shield on a single tank, as it allows a resto Shaman to Earth Shield a Shaman who already has a personal Lightning or Water Shield.) The absorb though will be pretty small (8-10k-ish depending on gear level) but it is a resto Shammy absorb.
The 4pc bonus does seem to have some buggy issues on the PTR or there are exceptions to the spells it will mimic, since it doesn’t seem to mimic Healing Rain.
