TBC Classic Restoration Druid Phase 2 / Tier 5 Gear and Best in Slot

Last updated on Jan 08, 2022 at 20:55 by Seksixeny 8 comments

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


Restoration 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 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 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 Restoration Druid Tier Set

Restoration Druid Tier 5, the Nordrassil Raiment, is obtained from the following bosses:

Its set bonuses are:

  • 2 pieces — increases the duration of your Regrowth IconRegrowth spell by 6 sec. This is a minor bonus, as you are not likely to use Regrowth a lot in most situations.
  • 4 pieces — increases the final amount healed by your Lifebloom IconLifebloom spell by 150. Lifebloom is our main spell, but is generally meant to be stacked up and kept rolling without ever letting it burst, in which case this set bonus has no effect.

Phase 2 / Tier 5 Best in Slot Table

At this point you can also safely drop Tailoring and Leatherworking (assuming you are not your group's drummer) in order to get Enchanting and Jewelcrafting or Engineering, which have better benefits.
