Welcome to our resto shaman leveling series. In this article we discuss the spells you gain during level 81-85 (Cataclysm).
This is the expansion with the least number of levels and the least number of changes. In fact, the changes to the healing game are so minor, that we will only discuss the (two) additions to the spell family.
Unleash Life. In Mists of Pandaria, this spell was really exciting. It was possible to unleash your Healing Rain. However, in Warlords of Draenor this spell no longer is able to unleash your Healing Rain. It still empowers your next direct heal with 30%, consider this a nice bonus.
Spiritwalker’s Grace. Every two minutes, you can move while casting for 15 seconds. There are many glyphs that modify the way this ability works. Either the cooldown is decreased, the duration of the ability prolonged, or you become immune to silence. Being able to cast while moving is a direct boost to your output. Try to use it as often as possible.
