Yellow Beorning

Healing Beorning Roar Build

Table of Contents


Welcome, here you will find up-to-date and most current Yellow Line build for healing Beornings. This is one of my most favorite specs in the game, because Beorning healer is so versatile, it isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill healer, where they just stand in one place and spam healing skills without running into any resource issues. Beorning has a lot to do and a lot to offer to the group, which makes it challenging, but fun.

Beorning is a heavy armour healer, which allows it to be in melee range, to keep its debuffs going and to make up for their lesser radius on majority of their healing skills, not to mention their wrath generating skills, which are mostly melee. A well played Beorning will always keep moving around with the melee DPS, and to the person which needs spot healing.

There is a lot of ‘Form’ switching in this spec, and this is something which takes time and experience to get used to.

Stat Goals

*This applies to all levels, from 0 to 130.

Your primary job is to keep your Tank alive and the group to the best of your capabilities, while also keeping your Beorning Debuffs active, which are very important. For this, you need specific focused stats.

Critical Rating > Outgoing Healing > Finesse > Vitality

I find Critical Rating to be the most important Stat for healers, this should always be capped first. After that comes Outgoing Healing. With correct gear and essence placement, both can be easily capped on Beorning. After those 2 stats are capped, you need to take your Finesse to 270K, this will make sure you get 0 resists on your debuffs on T3 difficulty. Remaining stats should be placed on Vitality.

  • Critical Rating at ~630K
  • Outgoing Healing at 70%+ (can be checked in Tactical Mastery tooltip)
  • Finesse at 270K+
  • Morale at 300K+ (unbuffed)

** While you are gearing up, remove all Essences from your current Gear, and then slot Essences as per the Stat goals. After you have met the Stat goals, then place the right Virtues (more down on that down below). This way you can plan your setup better, and utilize Essences perfectly, and can dump the remaining Essences in Vitality or other Stat of your choice after meeting Stat goals mentioned above.


The new Armour Set from Remmorchant Raid is current Best in Slot (BiS). It is called the ‘Exhilarating Change’ set. It gives the Beorning, +10 Wrath every time they transform between Man and Bear Form. I would rate this set as excellent, as it solves a lot of Wrath problems which Beornings face while healing. I would recommend that you go for all 6/6 pieces of this set, as they give Outgoing Healing stat also.

If you don’t have any Raid pieces, go for the T1 Heavy Armor with Mastery/Crit until you get the Raid set. Use Essences till you meet the Stat Goals, as listed above, 630K Critical and 70% Outgoing Healing (Capped Virtues help a lot).

Unbuffed Stats.

This is what I use, 4x Yellow Line Set, and 2x Red Line Set from Remmorchant Raid.

(Click for larger picture) – This Set drops from the T3 Difficulty of the Remmorchant Raid, and also has a small chance to drop from T1/T2 Sidebosses:

This is my Armour and Essences combination. By using this setup, I reach my Stat Goals, while having a very nice Morale pool.

Here are the Jewels I use.

Necklace, Pocket, Earrings, Rings & Bracelets.
  1. Earrings: Shadowed King T5
  2. Pocket: Thrang T2
  3. Necklace, Bracelets and Rings: Amdân Dammul (New WotTP Raid)

Special Trigger Essences to use:

You need all 4 of these, you can place them wherever you like. I keep them on Rings, so I can easily share them between my Alts.

Trait Trees

This is the Tree I use for Healing. I take everything important from Yellow Line and important utility from Blue and Red.

Yellow Tree for healing.

This is my most perfect setup. To start with, I have the stacking 5% outgoing healing buff from Slash, max Bees Debuff potency, max Armour Crush, and maxed out Sacrifice.


These are the virtues I use to reach the Stat Goals. You can play around with these to get the numbers you want, but I would not recommend using any Mits virtues (apart from Fidelity) as you don’t gain much from them. You can swap around, depending on the fight, can swap in more Morale ones in for example, it just depends on the fight.

Virtues for Healing

By using these Virtues, I reach my Stat Goals, while still maintaining a good Morale pool.

  1. Valour (I take this for Finesse and Critical Rating)
  2. Zeal (Mostly just for the Critical Rating and the Outgoing Healing I get from the Mastery) – Can Swap this for Loyalty for harder fights.
  3. Confidence (Best Critical Rating virtue for all classes)
  4. Honesty (For Outgoing Healing and Critical Rating)
  5. Wit (For Finesse and Critical Rating)

If you don’t have these virtues, here are some alternatives:

  • Loyalty
  • Fidelity
  • Honour

Legendary Items

These are pretty straight-forward.

Dual-wield, Carving and Bow Setup

I find these legacies to be the best for Healing/Support Beorning.

Swap Legendary Items

I use 2 Swap LIs on Beorning.

  1. Weapon is used as a swap for the following skills:
    • Bee Swarm Debuff (This is an important skill to swap for, it increases the debuff duration, which gives you time to do other things)
  2. Carving is used as a swap for:
    • Rush Duration (Pretty nice to have and useful)


Here is what I do on Healing Beorning:

  1. To begin with, always start the fight with max Wrath. You can use Biting Edge, Hearten and Ferocious Roar to fill up your Wrath pre-fight.
  2. Put the Mark of Grimbeorn on your top DPS player in group to give them a buff of +15% damage for 12s, whenever you use Vicious Claws. However, you will lose out on some healing on tank if you do this, so if your Tank needs more heals, switch the mark on the Tank.
  3. Always start the fight with your debuffs right away, Bees first (don’t forget to swap to unimbued weapon if you have, for the debuff duration). Also put the Mark of Beorn on the target you want to use Bees on.
  4. Ideally you want to use your Armour Crush debuff when Oathbreakers are on target, so you can coordinate that with your Captain, but if your group is not using Oathbreakers at start, use your Armour Crush right away after you use your Bees.
  5. Now that both of your debuffs are on the target, go in Man Form and use Slash. Ideally you want to use this skill 3 times every 20 seconds, so whenever you go in Man Form, use Slash. It gives a nice outgoing healing buff. It helps if you can track this buff via a plugin.
  6. After these 3 things are done, you want to start using HoT (Hearten) on your tank, or whoever that is taking heavy damage.
  7. Rotate around Slash – Hearten – Nature’s Mend – Slash
  8. After you have finished your Man Form rotation, your debuffs will be coming off, go in Bear Form and Refresh them.
  9. Stay in Bear Form and look around who needs heals. At this stage you can also start building Encouraging Roar stacks on your tank, just to be safe, it’s a very strong HoT.
  10. If group needs an AoE heal, use Rejuvenating Bellow, your 2nd biggest AoE heal.
  11. You also have Relentless Maul, your biggest AoE heal, use this only if your entire group needs some form of a heal.
  12. After your group’s morale is stable, switch back to Man Form and start the rotation again, Slash – Hearten – Nature’s Mend – Slash
  13. You also have some other emergency skills, such as Nature’s Bond, which transfers almost all the healing you receive, to the person you use the skill on, it’s very effective, use it on the person (usually the Tank) to bring them back up fully.
  14. Another important utility is the skill called Sacrifice. If you have used up all your heals and cooldowns and have nothing left, use Sacrifice on the target. But be careful with this, if you receive too much damage on yourself after using that, turn it off fast).
  15. There’s also another important skill to keep track of, called Piercing Roar, it reduces target’s damage by 20% for 12s. Ideally, this skill should be used before a big incoming hit. If you know the mechanics well, you can use this skill well and take advantage of it. However, if you don’t know the mechanics, keep this skill on cooldown.
  16. To summarize, you need to keep Armour Crush and Bees (with Mark of Beorn) full time 100% on the DPS target. After that, it’s all about using Man and Bear Form heals and HoTs, when they are on cooldown, switch to other form and use heals from there. Keep Slash buff up, it’s very potent, and Hearten HoTs and Encouraging Roar HoTs on your Tank as best as you can. Use Biting Edge/Slam/Ferocious Roar/Nature’s Mend also in rotation, so your Wrath doesn’t disappear.


There are the consumables I use on Beorning:

These are great to generate Wrath when you need it urgently.

That is the food I use on Beorning.
