Leveling a Resto Shaman: 20-29

Ok, let’s get back to the resto shaman leveling guide.  My own momentum in leveling another resto shaman has it a brick wall, somewhat predictably.  I think this is due to several primary factors: (1) I already have a level 80 restoration shaman who rocks, (2) I’ve been distracted by leveling alts of other classes […]

Pimp My Resto Shaman: Katyberry

Before we get to Katyberry, a reminder that if you’d like to see your resto shaman featured here, you can leave a comment providing the same information that Katy did, or you can head over to the original post here.  Ok, let’s see what we can do for Katyberry.  Here’s what she has to say: Overall, […]

Resto Shaman UI and Addon Advice
