ROTATION

Unlike DPS, your rotation as a healer is very flexible and largely determined by how much healing you will need to have going out. But in general, focus on the following:

  • Try to keep Combat Prayer uptime near 100% to keep the Minor Berserk buff up
  • Keep an Energy Orb in the air at all times for the huge healing it provides and the synergy it provides your team
  • When you have time, spam Illustrious Healing to proc your Master’s restoration staff
  • Ensure your Olorime’s ring is being placed when possible (proc with Elemental Blockade)
