==Improvements==
 
* [[Purification]] increases the healing done by the spell by 10%.
 
* [[Tidal Focus]] reduces the mana cost by 5%. [[Improved Water Shield]] returns mana every time the spell crits, further increasing mana efficiency.
 
* [[Tidal Mastery]] increases the critical effect chance of the spell by 5%. [[Thundering Strikes]] increases that by another 5%. [[Blessing of the Eternals]] adds a further 4%.
 
* [[Ancestral Awakening]] allows the spell to heal a secondary target for 30% of the initial heal if the spell crits. Note that this only affects the direct heal and not the heal over time part.
 
* [[Ancestral Healing]] causes the spell to increase the target's armor when it crits.
 
* [[Tidal Waves]] causes Riptide to decrease the casting time of your next two Lesser Healing Wave or [[Healing Wave]] spells if cast within 15 seconds.
 
* [[Healing Grace]] reduces the threat caused by the spell by 15%, and gives a 30% chance for the heal over time buff to resist [[dispel]] mechanics.
 
 
* [[Glyph of Riptide]] increases the duration of the heal over time effect by 6 seconds.

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.

Notes

  • 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

Patch changes
