On this page, you will find the best pre-raid gear for Balance Druid in TBC Classic.


Balance Druid Pre-Raid Best in Slot List

This is the gear we recommend for Druids in TBC, before setting foot in raids, such as 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.


Other Balance Druid Best in Slot Lists

If your character is ready to jump into Phase 5 / Tier 6 content, then see our current best in slot list. If you wish to go through the content of Tiers 4 or 5 instead, then please see their respective lists below.


Pre-Raid Best in Slot Table

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!
