Patch 9.2.5 Last Updated: 2nd Aug, 2022
Dorullkjell Balance Druid Author


Hey I am Doru, or Dorullkjell. I have been playing Balance druid on and off since Wrath of the lich king. I am a multi class player, but my heart lies with balance. I am a prior MDI champion, where I played mostly balance druid. I have also raided with Pieces for couple of years.

Balance Druid is a really versatile utility spec due to its shapeshift ability.

Strength: Balance offers strong single target damage, good spread Area of Effect (AoE) damage and good stacked AoE if you play Soul of the Forest talent. Balance has a really strong spell which is called "Celestial Alignment", it is one of the stronger cooldowns in the game, but it's a 3 minute cooldown.

Weakness: Need to ramp before you’re able to blast. And if you are a Venthyr druid, your burst ramp will take a while, but in the end you get rewarded with the strongest burst in the game.

What has changed

Season 4 Balance Druid Changes

There are some changes to different covenants in this patch, and I will go through the meaningful ones.

Besides that, we are also getting double legendary and tier sets.

The biggest changes from patch 9.2.5 for Balance are:

Inscrutable Quantum Device (IQD) is now no longer a trinket that you want to use.

There are quite a few new trinket options going into this patch; Scars of Fraternal StrifeMoonlit PrismCabalist's Hymnal, and Shadowed Orb of Torment.

Starfall has gotten a 15% damage buff. This is a pretty significant buff for Starfall and will make Balance AoE stronger.
