On this page, you will find the best pre-raid gear for Balance Druid in WotLK Classic.
Balance Druid Pre-Raid Best in Slot List
This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for Balance Druids. That does not mean you are required to have this gear to start raiding, but instead that this is a list of non-raid items that are strong choices, and thus that you should use to make your gear stronger while not raiding.
The gear choices in the tables below follow our stat guide priority.

Some of the listed gear can be expensive to get, or time-consuming to obtain in the case of dungeon gear, so do not be afraid of going straight into raiding at 80, as entry raids are extremely easy, even when done with questing gear!
In Phase 4, Titan Rune Dungeons bosses drop Emblem of Triumph and Defiler's Scourgestone, which can be traded for Sidereal Essence on a one-to-one basis. With these currencies you will be able to get some incredibly powerful gear relatively quickly, such as the 245 item level version of Reign of the Dead and 252 item level Flare of the Heavens, or as many Trophy of the Crusade for 245 item level tier 9 pieces as you wish.
Wrath Classic Balance Druid Tier 9 Set
Its set bonuses are:
- 2 pieces — enables critical strikes from the damage over time of Moonfire. This is a strong bonus which also leads to a rotational and recommended glyph change once you have it;
- 4 pieces — increases the damage done by Starfire and Wrath by 4%. A good and straightforward damage increase.
As the individual gear pieces are already strong for their stats alone, these bonuses make them the best pre-raid options.
