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 Gems are usually the most valuable, granting a lot of Spell Power. Blue Gems have Mp5 and 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.
Wrath Balance Druid Meta Gem
Chaotic Skyflare Diamond is the best overall 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 is the main gem that you should be putting into the Red Sockets on your gear, with Veiled Monarch Topaz also being worthy of consideration if you need extra Hit.
Wrath Balance Druid Blue Gem Sockets
Royal Twilight Opal is the best Blue Gem, and you need two of them to unlock Chaotic Skyflare Diamond. Try to put them into Blue Sockets in order to get some socket bonuses as well.
Wrath Balance Druid Yellow Gem Sockets
Veiled Monarch Topaz is the best Yellow Gem. Use them on Yellow Sockets with good bonuses if you can use the extra Hit, or Reckless Monarch Topaz / Potent Monarch Topaz if you are already Hit capped.
Wrath Classic Balance Druid Complete Consumable List
Because of their expensive spells and frequent Starfall uses, Balance Druids can be quite Mana hungry. You can prolong your Mana bar by using consumables and dropping Moonfire completely from your rotation.
Wrath Classic Balance Druid Flasks
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 is the best Battle Elixir and Elixir of Mighty Thoughts is the best Guardian Elixir.
Wrath Classic Balance Druid Food Buff
Fish Feast, Tender Shoveltusk Steak, and Firecracker Salmon all grant 46 Spell Power, and are the best food buffs available.
Wrath Classic Balance Druid Potions
Potion of Speed is the best DPS potion during a fight and should be used during Lunar Eclipse with trinkets and Hyperspeed Accelerators. For pre-potting purposes, use Potion of Wild Magic, instead.
