Best Gems for Balance Druids
Because of the different stat values, as discussed in our stats page, the value of each gem varies, depending on the stats they provide.
The red gems are usually the most valuable, granting a lot of Spell Damage. Blue gems have Mp5 or Stamina and Yellow gems have Spell Crit or Spell Haste. Typically the value of just stacking red gems is such that you will want to ignore socket bonuses, unless you can get them with one split gem and they offer a strong stat such as bonus spell damage.
TBC Balance Druid Meta Gem
Chaotic Skyfire Diamond is the best overall meta gem for Balance Druids, increasing your damage substantially and making your frequent Spell Critical Strikes deal even more damage!
TBC Balance Druid Red Gem Sockets
The Runed Crimson Spinel is the main gem that you should be putting into your gear, regardless of socket color in most cases.
TBC Balance Druid Blue Gem Sockets
Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst is the best blue gem, and you need two of them to unlock Chaotic Skyfire Diamond. Try to put them into blue sockets in order to get some socket bonuses as well.
TBC Balance Druid Yellow Gem Sockets
Potent Pyrestone is the best yellow gem. Use them on yellow sockets with good bonuses.
TBC Classic Balance Druid Complete Consumable List
Because of their expensive spells, Balance Druids can be quite Mana hungry. You can prolong your Mana bar by a lot by using consumables, which is recommended when min-maxing or progressing new bosses, as the alternative of downranking your spells leads to a large DPS loss.
TBC Classic Balance Druid Flasks
Flask of Blinding Light is the recommended flask for Balance, and is about on par with using double elixirs, while potentially being much cheaper for progress on hard bosses because it does not get removed on death.
TBC Classic Balance Druid Elixirs
Adept's Elixir is the best Battle Elixir, while Elixir of Draenic Wisdom, or Elixir of Major Mageblood for Mana, are the best Guardian Elixirs.
TBC Classic Balance Druid Food Buff
Blackened Basilisk, Poached Bluefish and Crunchy Serpent all give Spell Damage, and are the best foods available.
TBC Classic Balance Druid Weapon Oil
Brilliant Wizard Oil or Superior Wizard Oil are the best oils available in TBC Classic.
TBC Classic Balance Druid Potions
Destruction Potion is the best DPS potion, although you should use Super Mana Potion instead, if you have Mana issues. If you use the potions quickly enough, you might be able to use multiples of them in a single fight, as they share a 2-minute cooldown.
Other TBC Classic Balance Druid Consumables
- Drums of Battle give Spell Haste to yourself and your group, as long as they are nearby. Make sure to use this on cooldown if you are a Leatherworker!
