This section of the Resto Druid guide covers everything you need to find the best Resto druid best in slot Druid gear and Resto Druid Tier sets.

The Drape of Shame is an exceptional healing item due to it’s unique effect. 1, Karazhan was updated as a mythic dungeon with some very unique gear.
The Drape of Shame drops from Maiden of Virtue, and despite it’s low item level and ability to drop for all players not just healers, has a very unique effect valuable to most healers. While the value of the effect depends largely on your Critical Strike, the Drape of Shame is valuable beyond what it’s ilvl would suggest beating out ilvl. For example when running the macro in my raid healing gear, I receive the message: “Effect: 27 Total: 937”.
This suggests that my 910 Drape of Shame is roughly equivalent to a 937 ilvl cloak. Tier bonuses have been expanded to 6 items beyond the 5 that we’re used to in previous expansions while the tier set bonuses are still given at 2 and 4 pieces.

Item – Druid T21 Restoration 2P Bonus causes targets of Ysera’s Gift’s healing to also receive Dreamer, a small 8s HoT.
Dreamer will scale with our haste, versatility, and crit. In addition, Dreamer will count as an additional HoT for the sake of mastery as well as benefit from the increased healing from mastery.
5 seconds after casting Wild Growth. Each of these more frequent heals of Ysera’s Gift, also applies Dreamer from Item – Druid T21 Restoration 2P Bonus. Item – Druid T21 Restoration 4P Bonus for it to prioritize anyone except the Druid while Ysera’s Gift is healing much more frequently. If only the Druid is injured, it will still heal the Druid.
