Gear Choices

Earthgore: This monster set is incredibly powerful, and the healing proc from this can be the difference between living or dying. This is strong for not only keeping yourself alive, but keeping groups of players alive as well. It received a pretty hefty nerf in Elsweyr, but the set is still absolutely worth using for PvP. It’ll save the person with the lowest HP in the AoE at each tick, so it can save multiple people from certain death over its duration. Another really good option here is Troll King.

Transmutation: Gives a massive amount of critical resistance by healing someone with a HoT, which helps prevent sudden influxes of damage from being put on yourself and others. If someone in your group is already running this, Wizard’s Riposte is another option.

Shacklebreaker: Helps give us strong resource pools as well as sustain them. This is one of my personal favorite sets because of how well balanced of a stat spread it gives your character, and it helps round out the stat pools of this build incredibly well.


All points into magicka.


Healing Springs Radiating Regeneration Living Trellis Nature's Embrace Corrupting Pollen Life Giver
Deceptive Predator Shimmering Shield Efficient Purge Ice Fortress Blue Betty Permafrost

Front bar – Restoration Staff: Healing Springs, Radiating Regeneration, Living Trellis, Nature’s Embrace, Corrupting Pollen, Life Giver

Back bar – 1h/Shield: Deceptive Predator, Shimmering Shield, Efficient Purge, Ice Fortress, Blue Betty, Permafrost

NOTE: You can use Life Giver or Healing Thicket as your front bar healing ultimate – both are very effective options. Also, be sure to morph Blessing of Protection to Combat Prayer and Steadfast Ward to Healing Ward. Even though these skills arent used on your skill bars, when you cast Life Giver, it will cast the morphed versions of the skills instead of the base skill!

Tips & Misc.

  1. Watch your positioning and learn which skills to use in what situation.
  2. Always keep your Blue Betty up, it’s too good not to.
  3. You are not a damage dealer, you are to support those who can dish out the pain.  Maintain your buffs on yourself and HoTs on your ally’s.
  4. Corrupting Pollen gives a massive decrease to the enemy’s healing output. Make sure to maintain this ability.
  5. You won’t need a mount with Nature’s Embrace.  Just find someone in your group and latch on to them to get to where you need to be.  It takes practice but it’s VERY fun to do.  (Note:  Do not latch onto people in stealth to travel, they may get a little annoyed.)
  6. Light’s Champion/Healing Thicket is used defensively for healing, while Permafrost is used offensively for damage and CC – use whichever ultimate is required in a certain situation.
