Best Gems for Guardian Druids

Professions have changed greatly in Dragonflight, and there are now multiple ranks of enchants/consumables. You may want to consider using lower-ranked consumables in easier content and save the expensive stuff for the hardest content.

1.1.

Profession Consumable Ranks

As part of Dragonflight's overhaul of Professions, many crafted items and consumables may have multiple ranks of quality that impact their effects. For consumables, there are potentially three ranks of an item that may be used, with Rank 3 items (shown as item level 415 in-game and with three gold stars) providing the most powerful bonuses. However, higher quality consumables will generally be more expensive and not always necessary depending on the content you are doing. You should be willing to use whatever rank of an item is most within your budget, and save higher-quality consumables for content where you will really need the extra boost!

If you would like to learn more about quality ranks on profession items, or the overhaul to professions as a whole, please see our overview below.

You should use Energized Malygite Icon Energized Malygite in all your sockets.

Consumables for Guardian Druids

3.1.

Best Phials and Potions for Guardian

In Dragonflight, flasks have been removed and replaced with Phials. There are many phials, and you can change depending on different scenarios. Below, I have listed several useful phials for Guardian.

  • Phial of Tepid Versatility Icon Phial of Tepid Versatility

Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power will generally be the highest DPS potion. For AoE DPS, you may use Potion of Shocking Disclosure Icon Potion of Shocking Disclosure as a cheaper alternative.

In Mythic+, you can use Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power as your potion for the defensive benefit from the agility gained, which will largely increase your armor from Ironfur Icon Ironfur.

As of Patch 10.2, you can now use Dreamwalker's Healing Potion Icon Dreamwalker's Healing Potion as your healing potion. Healing potions do not share a cooldown with Healthstone Icon Healthstones, so you can use both if you have access to a Warlock.

3.2.

Best Food for Guardian

You should eat Deviously Deviled Eggs Icon Deviously Deviled Eggs for the buff to your Agility unless a feast is available.

3.3.

Dragonflight Extra Consumables Guardian

  • Howling Rune Icon Howling Rune
  • Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Rune
