Changes in Season 3

Season 3 has introduced many Class Changes, aswell as a new Tier Set, new Embellishments and more.


  • Innervate duration is now eight seconds (was 10 seconds).
  • Heart of the Wild has been updated – Now additionally reduces the cast time of Balance spells by 30 percent and increases their damage by 20 percent (was 30 percent) and generates one combo point per two seconds while in Cat Form and increases Physical damage by 20 percent (was 30 percent).



  • Developers’ note: In Guardians of the Dream we’d like to diversify Balance’s talent builds in different content and provide more viable options. Wild Mushrooms was too expensive to compete with other talent options, so we combined it and Fungal Growth into a single point. Wild Mushrooms is now a choice node with a revised Orbital Strike that is no longer tied to Celestial Alignment – you can choose the steady damage of Wild Mushrooms or a less frequent, big burst of damage with Orbital Strike. We also removed the conflict between maintaining Rattle the Stars and maximizing Starlord – we like the “save resources and spend during Eclipse” gameplay of Balance and feel Starlord epitomizes it better.
  • Damage of all abilities increased by two percent.
  • Nature’s Grace now grants 10 percent Haste (was 15 percent).
  • Power of Goldrinn damage increased by 20 percent. Moved to where Starlord was located in Fractures in Time.
  • Starlord has moved to where Power of Goldrinn was located in Fractures in Time.
  • Rattle the Stars has been redesigned – It is no longer a buff that stacks when you cast Starsurge or Starfall and is now a passive bonus that always reduces the cost of Starsurge and Starfall by 10 percent and increases their damage by 12 percent.
  • Fungal Growth has been removed. Wild Mushrooms now includes the effects of Fungal Growth.
  • Wild Mushrooms’ damage has been reduced by 20 percent and the Fungal Growth damage over time has been reduced to 60 percent of Wild Mushroom damage (was 70 percent). Fungal Growth’s damage over time now deals damage over 10 seconds (was eight seconds).
  • Mastery: Astral Invocation has been updated – Your Nature spells deal increased damage and additional damage to targets affected by Sunfire. Your Arcane spells deal increased damage and additional damage to targets affected by Moonfire.
  • Friend of the Fae’s tooltip changed to “When a Faerie Dragon is summoned, your spells deal 10 percent increased damage for 20 seconds.”
    • Developers’ note: This is a tooltip consistency change, not a functional changes. Balance spells whose tooltips say they modify your Arcane and Nature spell damage, like when you get the benefit of both Eclipses during Celestial Alignment, provide double their bonus to Astral spells. Friend of the Fae does not.
  • Orbital Strike is reverted to its original design and location in the talent tree.
  • Wild Mushrooms damage increased by 10 percent.
  • The positions of the Aethereal Kindling and Lunar Shrapnel talents have been swapped.
  • Starsurge damage increased by six percent. This does not affect PvP combat.
  • Shooting Stars damage increased by 15 percent.
  • Fixed a few issues with Balance’s Mastery. Mastery’s default damage bonuses now correctly increase the damage of Wild Mushroom, Power of Goldrinn, and Orbital Strike.

Stat Priority in Patch 10.2

General Stat Priority for Balance Druids with our Build is:

  1. Intellect
  2. Mastery
  3. Haste
  4. Versatility
  5. Critical Strike


  • Intellect is your primary stat, meaning that Itemlevel is superior in most cases. Higher Itemlevel will also increase your Stamina and Armor that you gain.
  • Critical Strike increases the chance for your abilities and spells to deal double damage.
  • Haste reduces your global cooldown, your time to cast spells, and reduces the cooldown of many abilities.
  • Versatility grants you a flat damage and healing increase, but also a damage decrease for half of its value.
  • Mastery increases your Nature and Arcane damage during either Sunfire or Moonfire.


The further we are getting into the expansion, the effects of diminishing returns start to limit your effective gain of your secondary stats. After reaching 30% (by rating) of any given stat, you will start to receive a penalty that reduces the gain from more of the same stat over this treshold.

Stat priority can differ on every character. Make sure to simulate yourself on Raidbots get the perfect results for you.
