T17: Restoration Druid Best in Slot List

druid brfWelcome to Healcraft.net’s Restoration Druid Best in Slot Gear List! My name is Lavathing, and I will be this guide’s author. As always, some of the selections below come down to very small mathematical differences, so some of the choices are based on gear availability and my personal discretion.

Introduction

As I stated above, some of the gear choices come down to very little differences in stats mathematically. In addition, pay attention to which list you are reading below, as we have a few different ones.  Mythic Progression Best in Slot indicates your Best in Slot list for progression, taking gear competition and gear placement into consideration. Finally, the Absolute Best in Slot indicates your absolute Best in Slot list which disregards the competition and placement of the gear.

Finally, if you believe that one of the pieces I listed is “wrong” feel free to comment below or tweet us @Healcraft! We strive for 100% accurate and up to date content, any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Mythic Progression Best in Slot

Head:  Living Wood Headpiece (Kromog / Blackhand)
Neck: Gruul’s Lip Ring (Gruul)
Shoulders: Flamebender’s Shoulderguards (Flamebender Ka’graz)
Back: Flame Infusion Drape (Beastlord Darmac)
Chest: Unrendable Wolfhide Robes (Beastlord Darmac)
Wrist: Squire’s Electroplated Bracers  (Operator Thogar)
Hands:  Cannonball Loader’s Grips (Beastlord Darmac)
Waist: Girdle of Unconquered Glory  (Hans’gar and Franzok)
Legs:  Living Wood Legguards (The Blast Furnace / Blackhand)
Feet: Sandals of Mycoid Musing (Brackenspore)
Finger#1: Spellbound Soliumm Band of the Immortal Spirit  (Legendary)
Finger#2: Golden-Tongued Seal (Twin Orgron)
Trinket#1: Everburning Candle (Bind on Equip)
Trinket#2: Ironspike Chewtoy  (Beastlord Darmac)
Main Hand: Inferno-Flame Staff  (Gruul)

Once again, this Mythic Progression Best in Slot list is comprised of all non-warforged mythic gear.  The major difference between this list and a typical Absolute Best in Slot list is that we take gear location into consideration.  Nothing from the final mythic bosses is on this list, as it does not help you during mythic progression.  Additionally, some consideration is given to loot competition.  This is primarily the case for weapons and trinkets that caster DPS also use.  For your absolute best in slot list, review the following:

Absolute Best in Slot

Head:  Living Wood Headpiece  (Kromog)
Neck:  Gruul’s Lip Ring  (Gruul)
Shoulders:  Flamebender’s Shoulderguards  (Flamebender Ka’graz)
Back:  Runefrenzy Greatcloak  (Kromog)
Chest:  Living Wood Raiment  (Flamebender Ka’graz)
Wrist:  Squire’s Electroplated Bracers  (Operator Thogar)
Hands:  Living Wood Grips  (The Iron Maidens)
Waist:  Girdle of Unconquered Glory  (Hans’gar and Franzok)
Legs:  Living Wood Legguards  (The Blast Furnace)
Feet:  Treads of the Dark Hunt  (The Iron Maidens)
Finger#1:  Spellbound Soliumm Band of the Immortal Spirit  (Legendary)
Finger#2:  Uk’urogg’s Corrupted Seal  (The Iron Maidens)
Trinket#1:  Auto-Repairing Autoclave  (Blackhand)
Trinket#2:  Darmac’s Unstable Talisman  (Beastlord Darmac)
Main Hand:  Inferno-Flame Staff  (Gruul)

Above is the absolute best items for each slot of gear. There is no consideration of what boss each item drops from. Finally, we assume that all the items above that can be warforged, will be warforged.  Finally, we assume that this list is being used for once progression is over and “loot competition”, or stacking loot on certain roles, is no longer a concern.

Conclusion

I hope these Best and Slot lists have been helpful for you. Once again, if you spot any potential errors or have a different opinion on any of our choices, please comment below or tweet us @Healcraft! Happy Healing!
