  • Empowered Touch (2 ranks)

Points required


Talent required



Empowered Touch is a talent in the Druids Restoration tree. It requires 17 points to max out. This talent will increase the benefit of [Healing Touch], [Regrowth] and [Nourish].


  • Can refresh Lifebloom, but with the current mana cost, it is more efficient to refresh Lifebloom via manual refresh.

Tips and Tactics

  • With Empowered Touch and [Glyph of Healing Touch], [Healing Touch] becomes a very powerful tank heal.
  • With the current cast time, this is a viable heal on the tank when the raid damage is not heavy.
