I have a concussion….so this really isn’t finished. Therefore, it is part 1!

Shaman leveling.

If you’re not Restoration, I really don’t know what you do.

But as a restoration shaman, I made it to level 34, around, before the dungeon finder came out. If you make through Stranglethorn Vale on any character, you know you probably stick with them, by the way.

If you’re leveling as a restoration shaman, then you’re probably leveling through the dungeon finder. You’re going to need to know the basic spells and when to use them.

15-19

Let’s say you have the fire and earth totems. After all, the earliest you can use the dungeon finder is 15, and by then, that’s all you have. What should you use? If you want to be more defensive and reduce the amount of heals you will need to use, then you should drop a Stoneskin totem and a Searing totem.

You have: Lesser Healing Wave(LHW)

Healing Wave.  (HW)

Unless a lot of damage is being taken, then just use LHW to top everyone off. ALWAYS. If for some reason you need to heal a lot of damage and the damage coming in should be minimal, that is where you should use HW.

20-29

! HEALING STREAM TOTEM! WATER SHIELD! WOOOO!

Always put down healing stream until you get mana spring, and then put that down unless there is a pally who will wisdom you. Keep water shield up AT ALL TIMES. It will help with chain-pulling tanks who apparently believe we can run on no mana. With Healing Stream Totem, you don’t have to heal as much because the totem will be healing it for you. Other than that, there’s no major changes or cooldowns you’ll have to juggle except for Tidal Force, the 11-point talent. It gives you crits, basically. Use it with LHW if you need big heals in not a lot of time.
