TBC Classic Balance Druid Guide

Introduction

    Every raid will want at least one Balance Druid because of the utility provided by
    Improved Faerie Fire
    and
    Moonkin Form
    . While the rotation is very straight forward, they can run into mana issues which can be mitigated through the use of consumables.

TBC Balance Druid Aldor or Scryer

    We recommend going Scryers as a Balance Druid in TBC Classic. The Aldor shoulder enchant,
    Greater Inscription of Discipline
    , is slightly better than the Scryer
    Greater Inscription of the Orb
    . However, Scryer's has the advantage of providing one of the best trinkets in Phase 1, the
    Scryer's Bloodgem
    and a powerful ring, the
    Seer's Signet
    .
