On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Balance Druid in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Secondary Stat Choice for Balance Druids

Haste 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.

2. Best Gems for Balance Druids

You should use Kraken's Eye of Intellect Icon Kraken's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye (or the cheaper Quick Golden Beryl Icon Quick Golden Beryl) in all other sockets.

4. Consumables for Balance Druids

4.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Balance

Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Flask of Endless Fathoms is the main flask for all raid and dungeon content. Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect is the main stat potion and Potion of Rising Death Icon Potion of Rising Death is the damage proc potion. Use the Intellect potion for almost all situations.

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

4.2. Best Food for Balance

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Haste food (Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts).

4.3. Augment Runes for Balance
