wotlk classic pve balance druid rotation & cooldowns

Balance Druids have a fairly simple rotation, anchored around our 2 Eclipse procs: Eclipse (Solar) & Eclipse (Lunar).


When to use DoTs

Balance Druids have 2 DoT spells: Insect Swarm & Moonfire. They contribute a good bit of damage, but you need to be careful with how you use them.

  • Refresh your DoTs when out of Eclipse. If in Eclipse then use Wrath or Starfire
  • If Eclipse just proced and DoTs are down: refresh Insect Swarm for Solar, Moonfire for Lunar.
  • If Eclipse just ended and DoTs are down: refresh Insect Swarm if you just came out of Lunar, and refresh Moonfire if you just came out of Solar.
  • The best time to refresh your DoTs & Faerie Fire is when you need to move out of a mechanic (like fire on the ground!) or move to a certain spot. You cannot cast Wrath or Starfire while moving, so this maximizes your damage output.
