Balance Druid

Patch 8.1.5

Written by Lørgok Last Updated: 18th Apr, 2019

Introduction

Welcome to the Balance Druid DPS guide for patch 8.1.5, written by Lørgok.

Balance druids excel at single target and target swapping when they are able to pool resources for Starsurge. We also have decent multi-target DPS thanks to our dots and have overall great utility spread throughout our toolkit.

Our main weaknesses are our cooldowns not being the strongest and lack of strong AoE abilities. Starfall is very under-tuned and we have too much ramp up time with it taking a significant amount of time before spreading moonfire on all targets.

What has changed

The last class change we received was Celestial alignment and Incarnation to give 40 astral power on use and 12 on a proc of arcanic pulsar (since 8.1.5).

With the release of Crucible there will be nothing new.
