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.


Best Gems for Balance Druids

Masterful Sea Currant Icon Masterful Sea Currant is a good choice as well as a single Leviathan's Eye of Intellect Icon Leviathan's Eye of Intellect. Even the lower item level Kraken's Eye of Intellect Icon Kraken's Eye of Intellect can be used.

Best Flasks and Potions for Balance

Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms is the main flask for all raid and dungeon content. You can fall back onto Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Flask of Endless Fathoms when looking to be more thrifty.

Superior Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Superior Battle Potion of Intellect as well as Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury are both viable choices. With more than one target, Intellect should outweight the flat damage.

During encounters, you can heal yourself using Abyssal Healing Potion Icon Abyssal Healing Potion and Healthstone Icon Healthstone. Make sure you use these when in danger of dying.


Best Food for Balance

Mastery food should be your personal food (Abyssal-Fried Rissole Icon Abyssal-Fried Rissole) and an Intellect feast if it is available.


Augment Runes for Balance

Lightning-Forged Augment Rune Icon Lightning-Forged Augment Rune is purchasable by earning exalted with the Rajani and should always be used when you can afford to buy it for 50-thousand gold.
