Best Gems for Balance Druids

Because of the different stat values, as discussed in our stats page, the value of each gem varies, depending on the stats they provide.

The Red Gem Socket Icon Red Gems are usually the most valuable, granting a lot of Spell Power. Blue Gem Socket Icon Blue Gems have Mp5 and Yellow Gem Socket Icon Yellow Gems have Hit, Crit or Haste, which are also very valuable.

Phase 2 introduces the Stormjewels epic gems as a small drop chance from the daily Fishing quest. You can use one of these to gain a minor stat bonus over regular gems, but they are likely to be expensive. If you want to use one, we recommend a Runed Stormjewel Icon Runed Stormjewel.


Wrath Balance Druid Meta Gem

Chaotic Skyflare Diamond Icon Chaotic Skyflare Diamond is the best overall Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem for Balance Druids, increasing your damage substantially and making your frequent Critical Strikes deal even more damage!


Wrath Balance Druid Red Gem Sockets

The Runed Scarlet Ruby Icon Runed Scarlet Ruby is the main gem that you should be putting into the Red Socket Icon Red Sockets on your gear, with Veiled Monarch Topaz Icon Veiled Monarch Topaz also being worthy of consideration if you need extra Hit.


Wrath Balance Druid Blue Gem Sockets

Royal Twilight Opal Icon Royal Twilight Opal is the best Blue Gem Socket Icon Blue Gem, and you need two of them to unlock Chaotic Skyflare Diamond Icon Chaotic Skyflare Diamond. Try to put them into Blue Socket Icon Blue Sockets in order to get some socket bonuses as well.


Wrath Balance Druid Yellow Gem Sockets

Veiled Monarch Topaz Icon Veiled Monarch Topaz is the best Yellow Gem Socket Icon Yellow Gem. Use them on Yellow Socket Icon Yellow Sockets with good bonuses if you can use the extra Hit, or Reckless Monarch Topaz Icon Reckless Monarch Topaz / Potent Monarch Topaz Icon Potent Monarch Topaz if you are already Hit capped.


Wrath Classic Balance Druid Complete Consumable List

Because of their expensive spells and frequent Starfall IconStarfall uses, Balance Druids can be quite Mana hungry. You can prolong your Mana bar by using consumables and dropping Moonfire IconMoonfire completely from your rotation.


Wrath Classic Balance Druid Flasks

Flask of the Frost Wyrm Icon Flask of the Frost Wyrm is the recommended flask for Balance, and is much stronger than using double elixirs, while potentially being much cheaper for progress on hard bosses because it does not get removed on death.


Wrath Classic Balance Druid Elixirs

Spellpower Elixir Icon Spellpower Elixir is the best Battle Elixir and Elixir of Mighty Thoughts Icon Elixir of Mighty Thoughts is the best Guardian Elixir.


Wrath Classic Balance Druid Food Buff

Fish Feast Icon Fish Feast, Tender Shoveltusk Steak Icon Tender Shoveltusk Steak, and Firecracker Salmon Icon Firecracker Salmon all grant 46 Spell Power, and are the best food buffs available.


Wrath Classic Balance Druid Potions

Potion of Speed Icon Potion of Speed is the best DPS potion during a fight and should be used during Lunar Eclipse with trinkets and Hyperspeed Accelerators Icon Hyperspeed Accelerators. For pre-potting purposes, use Potion of Wild Magic Icon Potion of Wild Magic, instead.
