Balance Druid Class Overview

PVE Balance Druid DPS Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to my Balance Druid DPS guide for World of Warcraft WotLK 3.3.5a. This will be a short guide describing what Talents, Glyphs, Gems and Enchants you will need in order to succeed in a raid. In the end of the guide there are also some tips and basic rotation for the class.

Balance Druids have a fairly challenging rotation. Their single target DPS High, but they really shine in multiple target fights. This class is valuable in raids because of his buffs. The only drawback is that the true damage is done while under Eclipse and sometimes you might just be unlucky and loose DPS.

Talent Tree

The first build is for new players with low gear. Involves a lot of mana-related talents

Second build is all-around raid build, for players with better gear. You might make some tweak according to your raid needs.
