Restoration Druid Mythic+ Rotation

While there is no specific rotation you should follow in Mythic+ content, itis important to know which spells are most efficient to cast or do the mosthealing so that you can make better-informed decisions.

First thing you need to do to be effective in Mythic+ healing and damage istomaster Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (1) Adaptive Swarm usage. The easiest way to do that is to installAdaptive Swarm WeakAura. Your goal willbe to stack Swarm higher so that splits also give more stacks, thus increasingthe total number of stacks long-term, improving your heavily DoT and HoT-orientedplaystyle significantly.

  1. Prioritise casting Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (2) Adaptive Swarm. Very important to keep thiscooldown as much as possible.
  2. Keep Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (3) Efflorescence down. This is by far the best spell both interms of Mana efficiency and healing output per global spent. This is especiallyimportant with Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (4) Verdancy.
  3. Keep Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (5) Lifebloom on a tank by default. Put it on yourselfduring group damage; otherwise, put your second Lifebloom on whoever is takingdamage.
  4. Use Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (6) Grove Guardians often. Do not sit on 3 charges often.
  5. Use Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (7) Cenarion Ward on cooldown if you are using the talent. Use iton the tank since it is a poor method of catching up.
  6. Use Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (8) Regrowth with Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (9) Rampant Growth talent to put 3 RegrowthHoTs up.
  7. Use Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (10) Swiftmend to activate Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (11) Soul of the Forest. Mostof the time, you will be using this to buff Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (12) Wild Growth. However, do notbe afraid to use it on Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (13) Regrowths to keep your group alive.
  8. Keep Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (14) Rejuvenation on an active tank and any players withdebuffs. Avoid casting too many unnecessary Rejuvenations. A lot of small damagecan be healed passively by your AoE healing or even self-healed by playersthemselves.
  9. Use Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (15) Regrowth as an emergency heal.

If you look at the priority, you should notice how far down bothRestoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (16) Rejuvenation and Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (17) Regrowth are. Your first instinct in mostsituations should be to use more efficient healing spells, which are listed atthe top. Once all of them are on cooldown, you can go back to Rejuvenations andRegrowths. Your overall recap from any dungeon should never feature these twospells at the top by healing done, least of all Rejuvenation.

Restoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (18) Grove Guardians is a good spell to have for low to medium damage. Youcan use them in any form, and the cast itself is off global cooldown. Sometimes, during very low damage, you can get away with just using them andRestoration Druid Healing Mythic+ Tips - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (19) Adaptive Swarm to heal all the damage.

During downtime from healing, you should be actively looking to deal as muchdamage as you can. The rotation might be complicated to master fully, but youshould still learn which spells to prioritize to time more keys.
