Updated Mists of Pandaria gems and enchants
Other Shaman Guides
- Primary: Int & Resilience
- Secondary: PvP Power > Spirit* > Int > Mastery
- Weaker: Haste & Crit, Hit
PvP Power, point for point, might be nearly as good as Int, but since gems with it have 2x the value as gems with Int you should gem for PvP Power. (EG: 160 Int Vs 320 PvP Power.)
Spirit depends on your mana usage. If you’re fine then get more PvP power.
Haste and Crit aren’t bad stats, it’s just that the others are generally better. Hit is bad unless you’re DPSing for some reason.

Gems for the Resto Shaman
You will want to match socket bonuses, unless the bonus is for a weak stat, like Hit. It might be worthwhile to put the purple (Mysterious) gems in your red slots and the green (Vivid) gems in the yellow and blue slots.

Restoration Shaman PvP Videos
There are three videos here. The first covers Resto PvP basics, the next your build and glyphs, the last goes into more advanced topics. If you need more gold to pay for expenses, then go here.
Resto Shamman PvP Basics
An overview of the Shaman and what they can do. Does not cover builds or gear. While it’s not a Mists of Pandaria video you should still be able to get some useful “how to” info from it.

How to Get your Shama to the Level Cap, ASAP
With the thousands of quests to 90 and a bazillion mobs to kill (not to mention other players, but they don’t count here) the task of sorting out which quests are best and which series of quests will get you to 90 the fastest is important, not to mention knowing exactly where to go and what to do, which is why we highly recommend Zygor’s Guide.
Zygor’s is an in-game guide and it nearly automates the whole leveling process: you just pick your starting point, at any level, and the guide tracks which quest you’re on, tracks the quest objectives, and automatically advances and updates as you complete your tasks and quests. In addition, a waypoint arrow is set automatically, so you never have to wonder where the goal of your quest is located. All of the important quest info is included in the guide so you never have to wonder what to do. You’ll find that it’s vastly superior to the in-game questing help.
Playing with Heirlooms and/or Recruit a friend? Gaining a few levels in the dungeons or in PvP? Zygor has your back. The guide knows what level you are and will correctly suggest where to go next and will let you dump all of your obsolete quests. You will probably never need to look at your quest log again.
