Balance Druid Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List for Molten Core / Onyxia's Lair

This is the gear we recommend you to chase while doing the first raids in the game: Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair.

Druid's Tier 1, Cenarion Raiment is not a great set for Balance druids since it lacks spell power on most pieces. Most of your BiS in this phase will come from a combination of Molten Core loot and specific green items, specifically "of Arcane Wrath" items that gives lots of bonus arcane damage. Arcane damage is your primary stat, so a green item that gives a large amount of it will easily be better than most dungeon and raid gear that you will find for awhile.

The list below contains gear from: raids, epic PvP sets (above rank 11) and world bosses, as well as some gear from dungeons and quests, when warranted.
