Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Feral Druid

This section specifically covers your character's optimal gems, enchants, food, and phials. To get a more detailed rundown of the different stats for Feral Druid, please visit our dedicated Stats page.

For all consumables excluding food in the lists below, you should utilize lower ranks of the same rank 3 options listed if you are looking for a cheaper alternative. The price difference is often significant for a small loss in stats gained.

Best Gems for Feral Druid

Due to secondary stat diminishing returns, your gems will fluctuate significantly depending on your current gear. Keep this in mind as these are very loose recommendations for quick gem options.

You should make sure to have one Skillful Illimited Diamond Icon Skillful Illimited Diamond as your single unique Primalist gem. To fill the rest of the slots, you will want Sensei's Neltharite Icon Sensei's Neltharite or Sensei's Alexstraszite Icon Sensei's Alexstraszite in all other slots. Alternatively, if you find you have enough Mastery but not enough Haste, you can use Keen Neltharite Icon Keen Neltharite or Keen Ysemerald Icon Keen Ysemerald.

Remember, though, especially at higher gear levels, your stats can and will alter depending on your current gear set. This means you may see more benefit from different stat distributions, so you should always aim to sim your character if you are looking for the ideal picks.

Best Enchants for Feral Druid

Slot Enchantment
Weapon (main-hand)
  • Enchant Weapon - Wafting Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Wafting Devotion*
Helm
  • Incandescent Essence Icon Incandescent Essence
Cloak
  • Enchant Cloak - Graceful Avoidance Icon Enchant Cloak - Graceful Avoidance
Chest
  • Enchant Chest - Waking Stats Icon Enchant Chest - Waking Stats
Belt
  • Shadowed Belt Clasp Icon Shadowed Belt Clasp
Legs
  • Fierce Armor Kit Icon Fierce Armor Kit
Bracers
  • Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Avoidance Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Avoidance
Boots
  • Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam Icon Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam
Rings
  • Enchant Ring - Devotion of Critical Strike Icon Enchant Ring - Devotion of Critical Strike

In Season 4, Enchant Weapon - Wafting Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Wafting Devotion has outpaced alternatives in single target and keeps up in AoE. Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion is still very close behind, and your decision here is mostly down to preference.

The Incandescent Essence Icon Incandescent Essence is acquired following a quest chain that begins after defeating Gnarlroot within the new Amirdrassil raid. This grants the Igira's Cruel Nightmare Icon Igira's Cruel Nightmare proc effect and can be re-used, so use it as soon as you get one on your head.

Cloak, Bracer, and Boot enchants are personal preferences as they have no direct impact on performance, but we recommend Avoidance and Stamina for the extra survivability.

Due to the huge rise in secondary value at high-end gearing, if you are willing to give up the Stamina then Lambent Armor Kit Icon Lambent Armor Kit is an alternative leg enchant for slightly more throughput.

Consumables for Feral Druid

4.1.

Best Phials and Potions for Feral

Currently, there are 2 options available based on the situation worth considering for different reasons:

  • Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage Icon Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage — this is generally the strongest option available, giving a large amount of bonus Critical Strike. The downside, however, can be quite dangerous and reduce its uptime, so be wary of using this if you are uncomfortable in an encounter.
  • Phial of Tepid Versatility Icon Phial of Tepid Versatility — numerically weaker than the alternative, but comes with the advantage of being more consistent, alongside providing a small damage reduction benefit. It is also much cheaper!

Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power (or the cheaper Elemental Potion of Power Icon Elemental Potion of Power variant) is your recommended potion in all situations. These potions can also be obtained from a Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power/Potion Cauldron of Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Power, so long as you have five Primal Chaos Icon Primal Chaos to convert into potions.

Potion of Shocking Disclosure Icon Potion of Shocking Disclosure has some niche benefits for mass AoE situations in Mythic+ if you do not want to pay the high price for other potions but is generally weaker.

Dreamwalker's Healing Potion Icon Dreamwalker's Healing Potion is the healing potion of choice. Using this has a 5-minute cooldown, but multiple can be consumed in an extended boss fight should it go on long enough. You can also use Potion of Withering Dreams Icon Potion of Withering Dreams in emergencies, but be wary of how much damage it deals after being used.

Additionally, Warlock's Healthstone Icon Healthstones do not share a cooldown with other healing consumables. Remember to use it as well if you are holding one!

Lastly, Alchemy has some more niche potions that can be used even if you are dead. Keeping some Residual Neural Channeling Agent Icon Residual Neural Channeling Agent handy in case you need to wait for a battle resurrection can be useful to still get value out of your potion cooldown should you die early.

4.2.

Best Food for Feral

Ideally, we use Thousandbone Tongueslicer Icon Thousandbone Tongueslicer at higher gear levels, however other stat combinations can also work depending on your gear. Alternatively, you can use feasts provided by your group (Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak Icon Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak, for example).

4.3.

Weapon Enhancement Consumables for Feral Druid

Your weapon enhancement consumable of choice is Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Rune or Hissing Rune Icon Hissing Rune for Critical Strike or Mastery respectively. Your choice will come down to your current stat distribution on your gear.

4.4.

Augment Runes for Feral

In addition, if you can afford it, you should use Draconic Augment Rune Icon Draconic Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of the consumable runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.

Through the Patch 10.2 Emerald Dream Zone and its Dream Wardens Faction, you can also obtain the Dreambound Augment Rune Icon Dreambound Augment Rune, which is permanent!
