Riptide is a shaman ability learned at level 10 for those with the restoration specialization. It is an instant cast healing spell with a heal over time effect. If the shaman casts [Chain Heal] on the target while the Riptide buff is still up, it gives the chain heal a 25% increase in healing.

    Removes the cooldown of Riptide, but reduces the initial direct healing by 75%.
  • Sell Price: 1Silver


  • Similar to a druid's Regrowth spell, Riptide is both a direct healing spell and a heal over time spell. The direct healing part of the spell can crit, but this will not increase the healing done by the HoT component.
  • Being instant, the spell cannot be interrupted, which makes it a very powerful ability in PvP
