Balance Druid DPS Season of Mastery Phase 3/4 Gear
On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Tier 2 / Blackwing Lair and Zul'Gurub for your Balance Druid in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery. For pre-raid gearing advice, please refer to our Balance Druid Pre-Raid Gearing and Best in Slot guide for the Season of Mastery.
Balance Druid Season of Mastery Best in Slot (BiS) List for Blackwing Lair / Zul'Gurub
This is the gear we recommend you to chase while doing the new raids in the game: Blackwing Lair and Zul'Gurub.
Druid's Tier 1, Cenarion Raiment and Tier 2, Stormrage Raiment are not great sets for Balance druids since they lack spell power on most pieces. Most of your BiS in this phase will come from a combination of Blackwing Lair loot, Molten Core loot and specific green items, specifically "of Arcane Wrath" items that give 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 a while.
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.
Other Best in Slot Lists
As this list is meant to be used for Balance Druids in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery, we have created separate gear lists for those interested in optimizing themselves for the "main" branch of Classic instead. If you are not playing in the Season of Mastery, it is recommended that you consult this gear hub instead. In case you still need them, we have also included links to other phases of our Season of Mastery gear lists.
In addition, because Blackwing Lair, Molten Core, and Onyxia's Lair may require the use of additional Fire Resistance, we have a separate guide below to optimize your gear for this stat if necessary.
