General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Balance Druids in World of Warcraft Legion 7.0.3, how the class benefits from each of them.

The statistics priority is important as it influences itemisation choices (gear, enchants, and gems).

The other pages of our Balance Druid guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Gapezilla, one of the best Balance Druids in the world, who raids in Encore, and whose stream you can watch on Twitch.

1. Basics

The stat priority for a Balance Druid depends on whether you are gearing for a single target or multiple target encounter.

1.1. Single Target

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Mastery = Versatility.

1.2. Multiple Target

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Mastery >= Critical Strike;
  4. Versatility.

These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using Simulation Craft.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

2.1. Statistics Priority

Intellect is your primary stat. You should look for this stat in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Spell Power, which increases the damage of your spells.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.

Mastery, through Mastery: Starlight Icon Mastery: Starlight, increases the damage of Starsurge Icon Starsurge and Starfall Icon Starfall, and increases the effects of your Lunar, Solar, and Stellar Empowerments.

Haste increases your casting speed and your Astral Power generation (as a result of you being able to cast more spells).

Versatility increases all your damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.
