TBC Classic Balance Druid Phase 1 / Tier 4 Gear and Best in Slot

Last updated on Sep 19, 2021 at 02:04 by Seksixeny 1 comment

On this page, you will find the best Tier 4 PvE gear and best in slot items for your Balance Druid in TBC Classic Phase 1.

1.

Gearing Strategy for Balance Druids

While a clear best in slot list is always available in TBC Classic, the items contained might be extremely hard or expensive to get. Thus, we will try to give at least one alternative, for most slots in the list, so that you can pick where and how to farm them.

1.1.

Other Balance Druid Best in Slot (BiS) Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Balance Druid, our pre-raid best in slot list is meant to give you an idea of non-raid items you can chase as a solo / pug player in preparation for raids.

Do note that items from Heroic dungeons or that require Primal Nether Icon Primal Nethers (which are obtained from Heroics) can be harder to get than raid items due to their daily lockout. Some Heroic dungeons are also harder than most of Karazhan.

If, however, your character is ready to take on the content of Tier 5, then please utilize our updated Phase 2 list instead.

TBC Tier 4 Balance Druid Best in Slot (BiS)

Balance Druid Tier 4, the Malorne Regalia has gloves, chest, head, legs, and shoulders. Its set bonuses are:

  • 2 pieces: your harmful spells have a 5% chance to restore up to 120 Mana. A small bonus that improves Mana management.
  • 4 pieces: reduces the cooldown on your Innervate IconInnervate ability by 48 sec. A very minor bonus, when you consider that Innervate has a 6-minute cooldown baseline.

We recommend using Tailoring crafted gear (Wrath of Spellfire and Spellstrike Infusion) alongside the best off-set pieces available in the rest of the gear slots.

Tier 4 is generally not strong enough to be at the top of our lists, but Antlers of Malorne Icon Antlers of Malorne can be very good when using Chaotic Skyfire Diamond Icon Chaotic Skyfire Diamond, if it is available on launch.
