Balance Druid DPS Simulations — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2.5
On this page, you will find a number of useful simulation results for your Balance Druids in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2.5.
With the advent of certain tools such as Raidbots, simulating your character has now become simple enough that we can recommend even the average player to sim their own character. It is through advanced simulations that many of the recommendations in this guide are found, and by doing your own you can easily figure out what talents you should be using with your particular gearing combination, what gear to equip, which Azerite Traits to use and more. Below there is a video guiding you on how to sim your character. Underneath that, you will find some generic simulations that apply to most people.
Balance Druid Racial Bonus Simulation

Balance Druid Azerite Trait Simulations
Below are the simulations of Azerite Traits under varying circumstances.
Single-Target Azerite Traits
Single-Target Outer Ring with 1 Arcanic Pulsar Trait
These simulations only have one active Arcanic Pulsar trait and five empty slots to show how other traits react to our best value Azerite Trait. The first link is using Vision of Perfection and the second is using Condensed Life-Force.
Single-Target Outer Ring with 1 Arcanic Pulsar Trait and 3 Streaking Stars
Single-Target Third Ring
These are the third ring Azerite Traits, which provide minimal damage increases.
These are single-target trinket simulations using a single base stat-stick trinket to not affect other trinket procs too severely.
Balance Druid Azerite Essences
Here is a link to all Azerite Essence combinations given a Major and one Minor slot with all Essences at Rank 3.
The remaining simulations are on the Balance Druid Azerite Essences page, as well as more in-depth explanations on all Essences.
