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.
