We have a wide range of spells and tools to do our job, most of them being more effective when the group stacks closely together. We have some supportive Healing over Time spells, and decent single target heals. This is accompanied by strong cooldowns which can get you out of dangerous situations easily, quite a bit of utility, and the ability to restore
to ourselves and allies.
Restoration Shaman aren't very mobile and love to just plant on a spot, spamming healing spells, especially because of our long cast times. When we do have to move though, we can shift into

Best Races for Restoration Shaman
Although some races are better than others in terms of raw performance or overall utility, it is worth noting that the power benefit of each individual race is incredibly small. If you really do not like the aesthetic of a race, or prefer to play something else by all means feel free to choose that. You won't see a significant difference in performance. Unless new Allied races add something that is noticeably stronger, this list will concentrate on useful things beside throughput.

Need to fix something. Shaman used to be a Horde-only CLASS, not race. Last I knew, I couldn't play the shaman race.
Shaman can use daggers, one-handed maces, one-handed axes, two-handed maces, and staves.
I want to take a moment to say thank you. I've been playing WoW on and off since Wrath. Having taken a break during Legion and coming back at the end of BFA in preparation for Shadowland, I can say that I've felt a excited but a little hazy about some of the Shadowlands mechanics. Your guide is certainly detailed but very simple to understand.
Thank you for taking the time to make it. I look forward to using some of your information as I progress in Shadowlands!
