TBC Classic Feral Druid Tank Phase 5 / Tier 6 Gear and Best in Slot

Last updated on May 05, 2022 at 01:43 by Seksixeny 1 comment

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


Feral Tank Druid Phase 5 / Sunwell Plateau 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 Tank, as described in our guide below.


Other Feral Tank Druid Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Feral Tank 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.

To check out our recommended Pre-Raid best in slot gear, head over to its list below. If your character is still progressing through the content of older tiers, then you may wish to consult their best in slot lists instead, but keep in mind these older lists do not include new dungeon and badge gear, which are often equivalent or even more powerful than old tier gear!


TBC Phase 5 / Sunwell Plateau Feral Tank Druid Tier Set

Feral Tank Druid Tier 6, the Thunderheart Harness, is obtained from the following bosses:

Its set bonuses are:

  • 2 pieces — reduces the energy cost of your Mangle IconMangle (Cat) ability by 5 and increases the threat generated by your Mangle IconMangle (Bear) ability by 15%. This is a strong threat increasing bonus which will make it even harder for other players to pull aggro from you.
  • 4 pieces — increases the damage dealt by your Rip IconRip, Swipe IconSwipe, and Ferocious Bite IconFerocious Bite abilities by 15%. While the effect for pure tanks is small, it is a decent damage increase whenever you can go Cat and also provides more AoE threat with Swipe.

Phase 5 / Sunwell Plateau Best in Slot Table

Leatherworking is a great profession for instant drums and special crafted gear in Phase 5, and Engineering still provides useful Stamina trinkets to a gearing Druid, but these can easily be replaced, making Enchanting stronger. Jewelcrafting also has slightly better gems if you have it.

Finally, it is worth noting that Idol of the Raven Goddess Icon Idol of the Raven Goddess is taken for its group benefit, rather than your personal benefit, as it can grant up to 100 Critical Strike rating across an optimized group which is a huge raid benefit.

Braided Eternium Chain Icon Braided Eternium Chain provides a strong party buff, which makes it worth using when trying to maximize raid damage. Make sure to get a new one whenever charges are expended so that you can keep using its secondary effect.
