On this page, we will go over the Phase 2 best in slot gear for Restoration Druids in PvP.


PvP Best in Slot List for Restoration Druids

This is our guide for gearing in PvP as a Restoration Druid. This gear will improve your odds in World PvP and Battlegrounds, but skill is still the most important factor in determining the winner of each match.

You can learn more about how to leverage your unique skills in the Restoration Druid PvP guide below:

You need 3% Spell Hit to be capped in PvP, which is of importance in order to reliably land your Cyclone IconCyclones and Entangling Roots IconEntangling Roots.

Using PvP gear with Resilience is generally the way to go, but it can be useful to also use some PvE items for increased DPS, especially if you have access to strong raid gear and no Gladiator gear for that slot.

Any piece you lack from the best in slot list below can be temporarily replaced by Rare-quality Honor gear or whatever questing or crafted gear you have.
