Primary uses

The Resto tree transforms a shaman into a highly effective healer. Chain Heal is arguably the best raid healing tool in the game and talents in the resto tree make the spell even better. While it is certainly possible to level up using a resto spec it can be quite slow so most choose to level as enhancement at least part of the way to 70.
