On this page, we will go over the best in slot gear for Restoration Druids in PvP.


PvP Best in Slot List for Restoration Druids

This is our guide for gearing in PvP as a Restoration Druid. This gear will improve your odds in World PvP and Battlegrounds, but skill is still the most important factor in determining the winner of each match.

You can learn more about how to leverage your unique skills in the Restoration Druid PvP guide below:

It can be useful to have up to 4% Spell Hit (PvP cap), in order to reliably land your Cyclone IconCyclones and Entangling Roots IconEntangling Roots, but do not get it at any cost!

Using PvP gear with Resilience is generally the way to go, but it can be useful to also use some PvE items for increased DPS, especially if you have access to strong Raid gear and no Gladiator gear for that slot.

Any piece you lack from the best in slot list below can be temporarily replaced by Honor gear or whatever questing or crafted gear you have.

Spell Penetration is a noteworthy stat for countering the small amount of resistances awarded by Mark of the Wild IconMark of the Wild, Mage Armor IconMage Armor and similar buffs. Fortunately Restoration Druids use Nature school spells, which have no Paladin aura counter, so a small amount of Spell Penetration is more than enough, which will typically come from Enchant Cloak - Spell Piercing IconEnchant Cloak - Spell Piercing and Wrathful Gladiator's Grimoire Icon Wrathful Gladiator's Grimoire.
