On this page, you will find the best PvE gear and best in slot items for your Balance Druid in WotLK Classic.


Balance Druid Wrath Phase 2 Best in Slot List

While a clear best in slot list is always available in Wrath 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 Balance Druid, as described in our guide below.


Other Balance Druid Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Balance 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:


Wrath Phase 2 Balance Druid Tier Set

Balance Druid Tier 8, the Nightsong Garb, is obtained from the following bosses:

  • Helm — Thorim in 25-man Ulduar or Mimiron in 10-man Ulduar;
  • Chest — Hodir in 25-man Ulduar or Yogg-Saron in 10-man Ulduar;
  • Legs — Freya in 25-man Ulduar or Hodir in 10-man Ulduar;
  • Shoulders — Yogg-Saron in 25-man Ulduar or Thorim in 10-man Ulduar;
  • Gloves — Mimiron in 25-man Ulduar or Freya in 10-man Ulduar.

Its set bonuses are:

  • 2 pieces — increases the bonus granted by Eclipse IconEclipse for Starfire IconStarfire and Wrath IconWrath by 7%. This is a very strong bonus overall and should be a priority to obtain;
  • 4 pieces — causes your Insect Swarm IconInsect Swarm damage ticks to have a chance to make your next Starfire IconStarfire cast within 10 sec instant. This bonus is also very strong on heavy movement fights, but less so when stationary.

You will want to get the 2-piece bonus as soon as possible, with the 4-piece bonus also being recommended for most fights. For fights where you can stand and cast for most of the time, having extra Hard Mode loot is preferable.
