      Before I start, this guide is mainly for beginners but can be used as a reminder for old players too.

      Races
      Although It's personal preference, this works for me. But, If you are good player this wont have much of an impact on the game

      Alliance:


      • Draenei:Most used race.
      • Gift of the Naaru - Heals the target for 20% of their total health over 15 sec.It is very powerful racial combined with Nature's Guardian talent proc.
      • Shadow Resistance - Increases your resistance to harmful Shadow effects by 85.
      • Heroic Presence - Increases your chance to hit with all spells and attacks by 1%.



      • Dwarf:Second best race in my opinion.
      • Stoneform - Removes all poison, disease and bleed effects and increases your armor by 10% for 8 sec. 2 minute cooldown.
      • Frost Resistance - Increases your resistance to harmful Frost effects by 85.


      Horde:
      • Goblin:
      • Rocket Jump - Activates your rocket belt to jump forward. 2 minute cooldown, shared with Rocket Barrage.
      • Time is Money : Cash in on a 1% increase to attack and casting speed.



      • Tauren:
      • War Stomp - Activate to stun opponents - Stuns up to 5 enemies within 8 yards for 2 seconds. 2 minute cooldown.
      • Endurance - Base health increased by 5%.
      • Nature Resistance - Increases your resistance to harmful Nature effects by 85.



      • Orc:
      • Blood Fury - Activate to increase attack power and spell power by an amount based on level/class for 15 seconds. 2 minute cooldown.
      • Hardiness - Reduces duration of stun effects by 15%.



      • Troll:
      • Berserking - Activate to increase attack and casting speed by 20% for 10 seconds. 3 minute cooldown.
      • Regeneration : Increase health regeneration bonus by 10%. Also allows 10% of normal health regen during combat.
      • Da Voodoo Shuffle : Reduces the duration of all movement impairing effects by 15%.



      Talents


      This is spec I use, mainly because Reverberation talent.
      I like it this way, but u can take what ever suit your playstile.
      Glyphs

      Prime:

      • Glyph of Earth Shield: Increases the amount healed by your Earth Shield by 20%.
      • Glyph of Riptide: Increases the duration of Riptide by 40%.
      • Glyph of Earth Living Weapon: Increases the effectiveness of your Earthliving Weapon's periodic healing by 20%.

      Major:
      • Glyph of Hex: Reduces cooldown of your Hex spell by 10 sec.
      • Glyph of Stoneclaw Totem: Your Stoneclaw Totem also places a damage absorb shield on you, equal to 4 times the strength of the shield it places on your totems.
      • Glyph of Healing Wave: Heals you for 20% what the target when you heal.


      Gems,Enchants and viable PvE items
      Stat priority is:4% spell hit > resilience > mastery/spirit . Will talk more in Spirit/mastery section.
      Gems:

      • Red: Wilful Lava Coral +25 Intellect and +25 Resilience
      • Yellow: Mystic Lightstone +50 Resilience
      • Blue: Turbid Elven Peridot +25 Spirit and +25 Resilience

      Enchants:
      1. Head- Arcanum of Vicious Intellect - 60 Intellect & 35 Resilience
      2. Shoulders - Greater Inscription of Vicious Intellect - 50 Intellect & 25 Resilience
      3. Cloak - Greater Intellect - 50 Intellect / or Darkglow Embroidery if you are having Tailoring as proffesion like my self.
      4. Chest - Mighty Resilience - 40 Resilience
      5. Bracers - Mighty Intellect - 50 Intellect
      6. Gloves - Greater Mastery - 65 Mastery
      7. Belt - Ebonsteel Belt Buckle - Gem slot
      8. Legs - Powerful Ghostly Spellthread - 95 Intellect & 55 Spirit
      9. Feet - Lavawalker - 35 mastery & Increased movement speed
      10. Weapon - Power Torrent - Proc of 500 Intellect
      11. Off-hand - 50 Mastery/40 Intellect choice is yours.


      As I forgot to mention proffesions, I use Tailoring and Blacksmithing for gem slots on bracers and gloves.

      Viable PvE items:
      Main Pieces: As resto shamans we use 4/5 resto gear and ele legs. So best keep it that way.

      Weapons:
      Best option is Maw of the Dragonlord

      Trinkets:
      1. Darkmoon Card:Tsunami- <3 Nothing else to say
      2. Windward Heart- Can proc for a lot.
      3. Heart of Unliving- Why when u have Tsunami :O


      Rings:
      1. Band of Reconstruction

      Spirit vs Mastery

      Ok, this is also personal thing, mastery is rng while spirit is 100% sure thing.
      Lets put it this way, picking spirit will allow you to play more aggresive (purge a lot/do some dmg) and not worry about ur mana so much,while picking mastery you will have to play safer in order to keep up. Its great when u 1% to 100% but its RNG and u cant rely on it always. For me I like having it balanced, not full mastery but not full spirit either. Choice is yours.


      Macros

      First of all I recommend using /target 1,2,3 and focus 1,2,3 macros.



      Focus Hex
      /cast [@focus] hex

      Focus Shear
      /stopcasting
      /cast [@focus] Wind Shear

      Focus Purge
      /cast [@focus] Purge

      Focus frost shock
      /cast [@focus] Frost Shock

      Self cleanse
      /cast [@player] Cleanse Spirit

      Party1 cleanse
      /cast [@party1] Cleanse Spirit

      Party2 cleanse
      /cast [@party2] Cleanse Spirit

      Although I like using swaping party1/2 with names when I play 3s.

      Now 1/2/3 macros

      /cast [@arena1/2/3] Hex

      /stopcasting
      /cast [@arena1/2/3] Wind Shear

      /cast [@arena1/2/3} Purge


      Arena Compositions

      2v2:
      Resto Shaman/Affliction Warlock
      Resto Shaman/Shadow Priest
      Resto Shaman/Balance/Feral Druid
      Resto Shaman/Fire Mage
      Resto Shaman/Arms Warrior

      3v3:
      RLS-
      Resto Shaman/Sub Rogue/Affliction Warlock
      Shadowplay-
      Resto Shaman/Shadow Priest/Affliction Warlock
      LSD2-
      Resto Shaman/Affliction Warlock/Balance Druid
      MLS-
      Resto Shaman/Mage/Affliction Warlock
      Shatterplay-
      Resto Shaman/Frost Mage/Shadow Priest

      Here are few 2v2/3v3 comps u can run and have fun, I dont know what to say more else, play arenas and learn from every mistake you make, none of us are perfect but learning from our mistakes make us better, so dont give up.
      Have fun and WATCH THE
      POSITIONING!


      I hope I didnt forget much.
