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


Restoration Druid Phase 1 / Tier 4 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 Restoration, as described in our guide below:


Other Restoration Druid Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Restoration 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 Tiers 5 and 6, then please utilize our updated lists instead.


TBC Phase 1 / Tier 4 Restoration Druid Tier Set

Restoration Druid Tier 4, the Malorne Raiment has gloves, chest, head, legs, and shoulders. Its set bonuses are as follows.

  • 2-piece bonus — helpful spells have a chance to restore up to 120 Mana. While the proc rate is only 5%, because it can proc on all spells this increases your Mana sustainability by a good amount.
  • 4 pieces — reduces the cooldown on your Nature's Swiftness IconNature's Swiftness ability by 24 seconds. It is not the most impactful of bonuses, but it does increase the uptime of your emergency heal.

Our recommendation for Tier 4 is using the full Tailoring gear sets, Whitemend Wisdom and Primal Mooncloth, as well as the best off-set pieces available in the rest of the gear slots.
