Skilltree Resto Shaman

Now this is the part where it gets really tricky, there are a lot of different speccs u can go as a resto shaman, depending on your setup, depending on wheter u like to use LHW, HW or even Chainheal, ive seen top tier players usin the most different speccs within the same mmr in, so our main Rule should be:

Whatever works for you, works.

But nontheless there are a several must have skills in the Shaman Healtree.  BUT as a Shaman you are very adaptable to every encounter, Windshear, Grounding Totem, Around the corner in Ghostwolf against Casters. U can kite several melees with Ghostwolf, Frostshock, Slow totem, Hex.

Adaptable Playstyle - Adaptable Healspeccs

So as u can see there are many ways how a heal shaman could Roll. Even I am not sure if my specc is currently the best for my playstyle, but there are several Questions u could ask yourself, and with a  little bit of WoW Gaming Sense and alot of PLAYTIME, you should be able to find your "Best" Shaman Specc.
The Questions:

- Is Mana an Issue?
     - HELL NO  -> more crit, more purge!
     - HELL YES -> less crit gear,more mp5, try HW with Shield Orb Proc, effetive purges, Watershield up?

- Am i playing a Comp with alot of defensive skills i.e. Warrior, Deathknight, etc
     - maybe u can go for a HW build . i.e. Meleecleave

- Am i getting hardbursted  by alot of comps? 
     - Defskills i.e. Absorb Totem, Natures Guardian, alot of around the corner -> LHW more CRIT!

-  Does my spec fit my playstyle?
    - i.e. your using a HW specc with a LHW heavy playstyle

I will ad more Questions over time that should do for now, feel free to post a comment below.

Resto Shaman Arena Basics

So you want to start playing Arena/PvP as a Resto Shaman.

At first you have to cover the Basics
Gear, Stats, Skilltree.
I wont cover the possibilty of a second Specc as eleor enhancement yet, i will mainly focus on a healing spec.

Here this is my Shaman Another, as u can see im playing on a German Server, EU-Proudmoore. Realmpool: Blutdurst.

 Must have Stats for PvP

Hit 4%, u can go for more, bt as far as my experience goes u should be just doing fine with 4% hit
u will need hit as u want to shock or hex ur enemies in PvP. U can get hit however u want, im rolling with hit ring and amulet.

More Hit? A Caster should definitly have around 6% hit because of some Racials: 

4% Hit + 2%  on Bloodelves
+ 2% Draenei/Undead on Shadowspells
+ 2% Gnome on Arcanespells
+ 2% Dwarfs on Frostspells
+ 2% Tauren/Nightelves auf Naturespells


Hands Down 130 Spellpen or more, Shocks and hexes can be and will be game winners, u dont want ur enemies to Resist ur spells.
