Balance Druid Pre-Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List

This is the gear we recommend for Druids in TBC, before setting foot in Karazhan. Essentially you should be following the basic stat priority of capping your Spell Hit, while also getting lots of Spell Damage and other useful secondary stats.

Some of the gear listed can be expensive to get, or hard in the case of heroic dungeon gear, so do not be afraid of going straight into raiding at 70, as it should be easy enough to do most of the bosses in questing gear!

Also, the listed Season 1 PvP weapons are much easier to obtain in Season 2, as they no longer require any rating and are offered at a steep discount!
