Restoration Druid Healer Season of Mastery Phase 1/2 Gear

Last updated on Dec 17, 2021 at 07:48 by Wrdlbrmpft 1 comment

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair for your Druid Healer in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery. For pre-raid gearing advice, please refer to our Druid Healer Pre-Raid Gearing and Best in Slot guide for the Season of Mastery.


Restoration Druid Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List for Molten Core / Onyxia's Lair in the Season of Mastery

This is the gear we recommend you to chase while doing the first raids in the game: Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair. If you are instead progressing through Tier 2 / Blackwing Lair, Tier 2.5 / AQ40, or Tier 3 / Naxxramas, see our updated lists for later phases instead.

Druid's Tier 1, CenarionRaiment is a solid set, and while not BiS in most slots, does provide a good source of Healing Power, mp5, and Intellect. This is an excellent set to pick up if you are just beginning the gearing process at max level since it is usually uncontested. Most of your BiS setup in this phase will come from off pieces from Molten Core, or even just dungeon gear in some slots. Make sure when looking for upgrades that you consider cloth pieces as well as leather since you do not lose anything other than some armor from using different armor types.

Please note that this list avoids using caster DPS items, as content in SoM moves faster and makes gearing casters much harder if healers get their items as well.

The list below contains gear from: raids, 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 Restoration 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 addition, because 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.



  • 17 Dec. 2021: Updated for World Boss Loot.
  • 15 Nov. 2021: Guide added for the Season of Mastery.
