Last updated on Jan 08, 2022 at 20:55 by Seksixeny 1 comment

On this page, you will find the best Tier 5 PvE gear and best in slot items for your Feral Druid DPS in TBC Classic Phase 2.


Feral DPS Druid Phase 2 / Tier 5 Best in Slot List

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.

The list will focus on gathering the best stats for Feral DPS, as described in our guide below:


Other Feral DPS Druid Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Feral DPS 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 your character is still progressing through the content of Tier 4 or is ready to take on Tier 6, then you may wish to consult their best in slot lists instead.


TBC Phase 2 / Tier 5 Feral DPS Druid Tier Set

Feral DPS Druid Tier 5, the Nordrassil Harness, is obtained from the following bosses:

Its set bonuses are:

  • 2 pieces — causes your next Regrowth IconRegrowth to become an instant cast after you shift out of an animal form. This can be used for emergency healing, but using Regrowth will eat into your Powershifting Mana pool.
  • 4 pieces — causes your Shred IconShred ability to deal an additional 75 damage and your Lacerate IconLacerate ability to do an additional 15 damage per application. This bonus gives you a great DPS increase and makes Tier pieces worth using over the best off-set alternatives.

Phase 2 / Tier 5 Best in Slot Table

Leatherworking is still a fine profession, both for instant drums in later phases and for Boots of Natural Grace Icon Boots of Natural Grace in Phase 2, but is outshined by the AoE potential of Engineering explosives, Enchanting ring damage enchants, and Jewelcrafting gems.

Finally, it is worth noting that Idol of the Raven Goddess Icon Idol of the Raven Goddess can be taken for its group benefit and is the recommended choice when in a stacked Physical damage group, but it is a high personal damage loss to skip Everbloom Idol Icon Everbloom Idol which makes it not recommended in the default setup listed below.

Braided Eternium Chain Icon Braided Eternium Chain is very strong on its own due to Cat damage scaling well from Weapon Damage modifiers, and is especially recommended for physical group buffing. Make sure to get a new one whenever charges are expended so that you can keep using its secondary effect.
