Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

Talents depend on your covenant, as seen above. This is an AOE fight and ST nuke fight towards the end. You want to save your second set of CDs if you play venthyr for lust to nuke the boss in 2nd phase.

Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

This is a simple single-target fight where you want to stack and nuke. There is a little bit of movement at times where it is good to have your Starfall up and running. 
Use your cooldowns on the pull with Blood Lust, and again when they are back off cooldown.

Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

This boss fight is all about coordination as a team and placing traps in good spots. I would recommend playing Night Fae on this fight as it lines up well with the intermissions where convoke comes in handy. Due to the rings, your utility spell is also pretty handy in this fight.

Venthyr Trinkets: Scars of Fraternal Strife and Moonlit Prism, Shadowed Orb of Torment or Cabalist's Hymnal

Notes:

As a Balance Druid, you nowadays play Stellar Drift instead of Stellar Flare most of the time due to nearly the same damage, and you gain a lot of mobility.

Focus on the add on this fight when it spawns. Put up Starfall and Sunfire, Moonfire. Do not Sunfire/Moonfire The first add as it will disappear too quickly. Same with other adds that dies too quick.

Door of Shadows is an excellent utility spell for this fight as you can Door through the rings into a safe space. It makes it easier for both you and your teammates.

Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

This is a hard on AOE/Cleave fight where Venthyr is really strong. You want to play towards the middle for the add spawns, so your Starfall can reach the whole room. Be careful, though, as you will have less space as longer the adds are alive. Keep dots up on all targets and make sure to have good uptime with Starfall. Make sure to read up on kill timings for the fight to know when you can use your cooldowns. You want your cooldowns ready for the last phase and Blood Lust.

Notes:

This is a boss fight where you and your team probably will have a set time to use cooldowns. Here you choose your covenant depending on what you need. If Night Fae, you will have convoke for every add intermission if needed. If you play Venthyr, make a plan for when your team needs it; if it is farm kill,  have some fun with the timings :)

Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

This boss fight is pure single-target with loads of movement and coordination. I would play Night Fae on this fight since it is a more durable covenant that gives you better sustain and leeway. Remember to have Pulsar proc ready for when convoke comes off cooldown again. You will also most likely be a bomb carrier on this fight.

Important note for Night Fae players. Do not use Convoke from max range as it will only heal if you do. Stay closer to boss when using it.

Notes:

This is a long boss fight where Venthyr is the go-to covenant. You use your cooldowns on pull and then in the first Lich King intermission on this fight. You will need to blast hard in this intermission. Hold your cooldowns until the second Lich King intermission to blast once more.

Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

This fight is a constant 2 target cleave fight. Here you want to use your cooldowns at around 45 seconds when your guild will use Blood Lust. A trinket you can play in this fight is The First Sigil, which is pretty good at a hard burst on 2 targets in Blood Lust. You use your IQD first with Frenzy in Blood Lust.

Then Sigil when it is ready. When you reach the end of the fight, your 3rd set of cooldowns is ready - Pop Sigil 4 seconds after Frenzy, and IQD when it is ready. You will secure a high amount of damage in your cooldowns. No RNG with IQD giving mana, healing, or wrong stat.

Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

This fight is a race from start to finish. You will use your cooldowns on the pull with Blood Lust in this fight and then just off cooldown. You will most likely be cleaving a lot with starfall on the Collapsing Quasars. Make sure to not burst them too hard if you have cooldowns up since it might wipe the raid. You will also probably have a little role in helping on the Unstable Matter before Massive bang comes to an end.

Venthyr: Endless Thirst + Precise Alignment + Wasteland Propriety or Fury of the Skies + Primordial Arcanic Pulsar and covenant legendary

Notes:

This fight is a hard single-target fight with a little bit of cleave/AoE. The fight has a lot of movement involved. So starfall timings + having some Astral Power saved for movement is very good. You will use your cooldowns on pull, and then save for around 3.30 min into the fight for good timing. Then your next set of cooldowns will be at about 7 minutes for the Incarnation of Torment. And then at the end in the last phase with Blood Lust again.

Notes: Talents depends on your covenant as seen above. This is a pure ST fight where you have Anima powers you pick up before the fight starts. You will mostly just stand still and do damage on this fight. Stampeding Roar being baseline in every spec will help a lot during Hungering Mists, making it easier to get to safety.

Notes: This is a cleave fight with a little bit of spread 2 target AoE. You can Door of Shadows through the beam or Soulshape, but it is safer to take the chain over :)

I would recommend to use your burst in the intermissions and keep starfall up at all times as long as there are 2 + targets up.

Notes: This fight starts with being a 2-3 target fight and transitions into a 1 target fight after 1.5 minute. I personally use cooldowns on pull, but if you are lusting at 1 minute ish to push the first phase, you can also use cooldowns at this point. Though it is not worth it if you lose a whole use during the fight.

Notes: This fight is a bit different then it was at the start of the tier due to the HP nerf on the Orb of Torment. I would still play Stellar Drift on the fight due to all the movement and some cleave damage onto the orbs.

Notes: This fight is all about surviving. Having stellar drift helps a lot when it comes to the movement of this fight and also to cleave onto the boss when the spiked balls spawns. As a balance druid in this fight you either have Door of Shadows to get over the spikes/spiked balls or Soulshape. Main priority is to survive, positioning with chains and killing the assigned spiked ball.

Notes: This fight is a pure single target fight where your goal is to put the Threat Neutralization onto the pillar (Mythic) and just zerg the boss down for a Balance druid. If you have Chaos Bane set, I would hold your second cooldown until around 12 stacks of Chaos Bane and then go blast and pray to the RNG gods for a proc at the end.

Notes: This fight is all about the RINGS. Do the runes properly and the boss is dead. Other then that focus on killing the tank add, dodging the beam (you can survive it if you bear with full health + barkskin). Ursine Vigor is very good for this fight.

Notes: This fight is all about management of the boss hp, healing cooldowns and add management. As a Balance druid you probably wanna go inside The Phylactery to kill the Remnant of Kel’Thuzad and this is where you use your cooldowns. (Mythic) The fight is pretty straight forward when you get to it. It is basically just a control fight which is kinda boring for a Balance druid.

The talents above are for the Night Fae covenant. If you play as Venthyr you want to pick: 1 3 3 3 3 2 2

Notes: This is a long fight where Balance druid shines. You use your cooldowns as NF on pull, but as venthyr around 6-7 seconds into the fight so you have your end burst at the time the first set of chains spawns. This is where you wanna use Starfall during this burst. Do damage and control adds. Always use Barkskin when you get Shadow Dagger debuff. 

If you are assigned to use cooldowns in intermission, do so when the veil hits as Venthyr. Start building stacks of Ravenous Frenzy by healing or dispel corruption. Then when the chains spawns you put up starfall, sunfire each wave and blast them all :).

Second phase is all about killing the right adds and keeping your team alive. Decurse if you are on the right side, do damage or heal if you are on the left side. If you fight the colossus just blast damage if that is what you are assigned to do. 

Third phase is a nuke phase, but keep in mind you can proactively use wild growth when the veil hits and do some rejuvs when she goes up. This removes a lot of stress from the healers. That is mainly the difference from Balance druid to other classes/specs in this phase.

Notes: You can stun or Ursol's Vortex/Typhoon the shades of Barhgast to stop their cast. The shade will also receive the damage taken debuff if you use Hibernate, but in theory the shades should be far away and trapped by hunters or polymorphed by Mages until they are ready to be killed.

Notes: It is not worth moonfiring the two other bosses because of the time spent on it will give you less AP than using playing normal rotation on main boss. So keep you moonfire on primary target only. Furthermore, try not to enter a new eclipse before the dance phase.

Talents: On this fight you can also play with Stellar drift (if you play Night Fae) and Fury of Elune. This is good for the burst phase.

Conduits & Legendary:

Use Fury of Elune instantly on pull, and save all damage cooldowns for the first pillar. Then the next set of all damage cooldowns for the 4th pillar.

If you play Shadowed Orb of Torment on this fight. Use it 20 ish seconds before he slams the pillar (when you or other players gets taken by the slam) so it lines up with first pillar
