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.

Best Gems for Balance Druids

Use Quick Sand Spinel Icon Quick Sand Spinel or Masterful Sea Currant Icon Masterful Sea Currant for multi-target. You can also use cheaper options, such as Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye, if you are short on funds.

Best Enchants for Balance Druids

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon
3.1.

Weapon Enchants

All weapon enchants are extremely close in value and should be simmed using Raidbots.

4.

Consumables for Balance Druids

4.1.

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.

There are a variety of potions you can use depending on the content or battle you are fighting.

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.

4.2.

Best Food for Balance

You should eat from Haste or Mastery food depending on the type of fight encounter (Baked Port Tato Icon Baked Port Tato or Abyssal-Fried Rissole Icon Abyssal-Fried Rissole).

At our current gear levels, an Intellect feast buff gets outclassed by most secondary stat foods.

4.3.

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.
