For those new or coming back for Warlords of Draenor, stat Reforging has been removed! Yay! Move onto the Resto Druid Professions and Consumables…
The method of Resto Druid reforging includes visiting a Reforger in your major city and basically changing less useful stats or attributes into more useful stats. As a Resto Druid this is useful to change such stats as Crit or Hit into more effective stats like Spirit, Haste or Mastery. Reforging gives you that little bit of wiggle room when you’re trying to get the most of out of your gear. It can also help you if you happen to only have a damage-based piece of gear and you need to change it to a more healer-centered piece of gear. When starting out we recommend enchanting your gear using our Resto Druid Enchanting recommendations, gemming your gear with our Resto Druid Gemming recommendations and then using these Reforging recommendations to get the most out of your stats for healing purposes. You can find the Reforger NPC that you need to interact with in one major city for each faction. Stormwind for Alliance and Orgrimmar for Horde or in the Mists of Pandaria factions hubs – Shrine of Two Moons for Horde or Shrine of Seven Stars for Alliance. To find the Reforger you can always ask a city guard and they will place a flag on your map/mini-map. To interact with a Reforger, simply right-click on them within range of them. Right clicking on them will open the reforging window. Now the window is open, make sure your character window is open. It’s now a matter of dragging and dropping items from your character window into the reforging window, selecting which stats you’d like to change, what stats you’d like to change them to, and pressing Apply. Now it’s just a matter of knowing what stats we need as a Resto Druid. You can always refer back to the Resto Druid Stat Priority page. Like with gemming, it’s best to ask ourselves questions before reforging… Have I enchanted my gear yet?
Yes: Go to next question.
No: Go to the Resto Druid Enchanting page. Have I gemmed?
Yes: Go to next question.
No: Go to the Resto Druid Gemming page. Do I have any hit or crit on my gear?
Yes: Reforge it to a more useful stat like Spirit(for more mana regen), Haste (until haste caps) or Mastery. What should I Reforge my stats to? Well, am I having mana problems?
Yes: Reforge to Spirit. Well, have I reached the 12.51% haste rating?
No: Reforge to Haste.
Yes, I already have 12.51% haste rating. Well, can I reach 21.43% haste rating?
No: Reforge to Mastery keeping haste over or as close to 12.51% without going under.
Yes, I can reach it: Reforge haste up to 21.43% then Reforge to Mastery. This should give you an idea of what to aim for with your stats. Again, this is merely a guide and is dependent on many things. But reforging is quick, easy and often the cheapest way to change stats. Now you’re all reforged, you’re almost ready for healing. One more thing is left to gain more stats to benefit your healing.
