Secondary Stat Choice for Balance Druids

Mastery is Balance Druid's highest simming secondary stat for most players. It is recommended you sim your character on Raidbots to get accurate results. Depending on your gear, you may want enchants, gems, and other player enhancement items that are not listed as recommended on this page.

Use the information from the Stats page to better understand the reasoning behind each choice.

Balance Druid is a user of the infamous Inscrutable Quantum Device Icon Inscrutable Quantum Device. This trinket can drastically change your stat priority as the order of your top two stats are important. Gem and Enchants can change drastically with any gear swapping that does not maintain your stat equilibrium.


Best Gems for Balance Druids

Masterful Jewel Cluster Icon Masterful Jewel Cluster is the top choice for Balance Druids in all situations. Use the Masterful Jewel Doublet Icon Masterful Jewel Doublet as a cheaper option. There are no Intellect gems in the Shadowlands as of yet. You can use Leviathan's Eye of Intellect Icon Leviathan's Eye of Intellect for a very small upgrade in stats as you get more gear.

Best Flasks, Potions, and Oils for Balance

The basic Intellect flask, Spectral Flask of Power Icon Spectral Flask of Power, should be used as your primary flask, and flasks from Eternal Cauldron Icon Eternal Cauldron are equal in strength.

Potion of Spectral Intellect Icon Potion of Spectral Intellect is the overall best potion to use. Shadowcore Oil Icon Shadowcore Oil should be on at all times, but does not affect your potion choice at this time.

During encounters, you can heal yourself using Cosmic Healing Potion Icon Cosmic Healing Potion and Healthstone Icon Healthstone. Make sure you use these when in danger of dying. If you have not, make sure you get the new Patch 9.2 Healing Potion.

For close progression pulls or for pushing your damage, you can also use a Veiled Augment Rune Icon Veiled Augment Rune. Once you hit Exalted with the new The Enlightened faction, you can purchase the new Eternal Augment Rune Icon Eternal Augment Rune for 40,000 gold. This is a permanent Augment Rune and you can sell your old ones.


Best Food for Balance

Mastery food should be your personal food (Iridescent Ravioli with Apple Sauce Icon Iridescent Ravioli with Apple Sauce) but use an Intellect feast (Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism Icon Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism) if it is available.
