On this page, you will find the best in slot items for your Restoration Druid during the pre-patch of the Burning Crusade.


Gearing Strategy for Restoration Druid in the TBC Classic Pre-patch

While this list focuses on the best gear possible for established players, the time available to gear up within the pre-patch for newly boosted or leveled characters is extremely short, and as such your best bet if you are part of that group is to spam queue PvP for good gear that is also easy to get.

You may also want to complement that gear with our Classic era pre-raid best in slot list, which has plenty of strong options that do not require a large raid group to obtain.


TBC Classic Pre-patch Restoration Druid Best in Slot

This is the best gear available for Restoration Druids in the TBC Classic pre-patch. Naxxramas is the final destination of WoW Classic, and as such carries the best gear and the most difficult bosses.

Druids Tier 3, Dreamwalker Raiment is perhaps one of the most iconic Druid sets of all time, and has good set bonuses, especially now that Rejuvenation IconRejuvenation can be used without the fear of pushing out more important buffs.

In order to make the best use out of long cooldown trinkets, such as Zandalarian Hero Charm Icon Zandalarian Hero Charm and Hibernation Crystal Icon Hibernation Crystal, swap them into your gear set when they are off-cooldown and replace them with others during their cooldown.
