General Information

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Balance Druid in World of Warcraft Dragonflight 10.0.2.

If you were looking for WotLK Classic content, please refer to our WotLK Classic Balance Druid gear and best in slot.


Gearing a Balance Druid

A large portion of gearing is reliant on item level. Try not to overthink gearing as most upgrades should be easily identifiable. After item level, you can further scrutinize the Secondary Stats looking for Mastery gear and items with sockets.

For more information on stats you can check our comprehensive Stats page as well as our Gems and Enchants page.


The Importance of Simming

It is important to use Raidbots to get an accurate idea of what gear is good and what gear is bad. There are so many variables that can change which pieces you would equip. While a cursory glance can be enough to determine what is usable, deciding what is best among what is good is a more nuanced decision.


Early Gearing in Dragonflight

Once you hit max level in Dragonflight, it is time to get some gear. Start by doing Heroic Dungeons and World Quests to upgrade your Questing gear and then see if you can group up to do all of your Mythic 0s before the weekly reset.

You should try to supplement your items with crafted pieces. It is unrealistic to be fully geared after one full run of Mythics. Professions offer access to some amazing crafted gear you can use to bolster up your item level and clear the dungeons more easily.

The best crafted items are locked behind Spark of Ingenuity Icon Spark of Ingenuity. One is available in the first week and the second is available in the third week.


The Great Vault

This weekly loot system remains the same and will unlock with the activation of Mythic +. You can loot one of nine total pieces depending on how many raid bosses you kill, how many dungeons you do, and how much Honor you earn. All rewards scale off of the difficulty of your content.

You can learn more about this system on our dedicated Great Vault page.


DISCLAIMER: Please take this loot list with a grain of salt. Simming and item level are more important than following a loot list blindly. Many trinkets especially have not been fully implemented. This will be updated as more accurate data becomes available.
