So far I have been very entertained by the WoW.com 101 guides but this seriously left a bad taste in my mouth. I feel Rossi would have done a far better job making a guide for Resto Shamans. First of all regarding glyph choices. Healing Stream and Water Mastery are horrible glyphs. Glyph of Earth Shield is a required glyph for resto (unless you already have a resto shaman in the group who have glyphed earth shield for each tank in which case healing stream is indeed the correct choice). Glyph of Riptide is also very powerful especially when used in tandem with on-proc enchants and trinkets (Riptide + Earthliving Weapon + Ephemeral Snowflake = all the mp5 you will ever need). The third glyph slot should either be Chain Heal for raid healing or Glyph of LHW for tank healing. Glyph of Healing wave is situationally good (Dreamwalker fight). Glyph of Water Mastery is just flat out horrible.Regarding the enchants, you do not want the SP + mp5 head and shoulder enchant. Most shamans prefer the SP + crit versions of them simply because crit is so much better than mp5. As a matter of fact, I would go on to say that crit IS mp5 (Improved water shield gives you mana back and ancestral awakening saves you that extra spell).Tl;DR this resto shaman guide is horrible and should be deleted from this site ASAP
