Balance Druid DPS Season of Discovery Best in Slot

We recommend using the gear listed below for Phase 2 as your main goal in the current phase of Season of Discovery. Also, as many people still run Blackfathom Deeps regularly to level up and are likely to have a lot of good gear from there equipped, the Phase 1 list can also be found below for reference.

These lists assume a stat priority of:

Spell Hit > Spell / Nature Damage > Spell Crit > Intellect > Spirit > Stamina

Take note that there is very little gear with pure damage stats accessible at Level 40, and thus in practice you will have to use a lot of Intellect gear, even though Wrath Icon Wrath is free with the new Fury of Stormrage Icon Fury of Stormrage Rune.

For more information on the stats that you should be looking for, check out the stats page listed below.

To help with presentation clarity, items that have Alliance and Horde versions with similar acquisition methods but different names will only have one of the versions listed in the tables below.
