Restoration Druid 8.3 BiS List (Top Picks)

Last updated: October 28, 2020

Welcome to our Restoration Druid BiS List, or as we also call it, Top Picks. This is a page where you can find the statistical distribution of gear, talents, and other choices among Top 1% of the best performing Raiders of this class and specialization in World of Warcraft. This page is updated for the latest Battle for Azeroth (BfA) Patch 8.3 “Visions of N'zoth” and the newest Raid – Ny’alotha.

We use services like Warcraft Logs and Raider.io to look up the list of Top Restoration Druid Raiders as of this moment. Then we cross-check these players through Official Blizzard API and find out what each of them is using because statistically, they are very likely to already have BiS gear, talents, etc. at this point. We parse these enormous amounts of data into useful and easy to understand charts and rankings that we show you on this page.

You can quickly find out what is the current Restoration Druid BiS (Best in Slot) gear just with the data we provide here. You can also see the best combinations of Talents, Azerite Powers, etc. This is always useful for optimizing your Restoration Druid character because acquiring these BiS options for yourself will obviously improve your performance in Raids and PVE content in general.

Be sure to also check out our Restoration Druid PvE Guide and Restoration Druid PvP Guide!

Frequently Asked Questions

🏆 Is this BiS List reliable?

Yes, it is reliable. We use a very sophisticated statistical method to constantly dig through tons of data which is received from Top 1% Raiders (using services such as Warcraft Logs).

🎯 How is this different from BiS Spreadsheets?

We think our approach is better because we utilize statistics and Big Data approach. Also, most hand-written Spreadsheets show only single BiS item for each slot and they do not cover Boss-specific BiS, while we show multiple options for each equipment slot as well as for every Raid Boss.

🤔 Why are there separate BiS Lists for each Raid Boss?

We show data for each Raid Boss separately, because quite often some items perform better than others if we look at particular PVE encounters.

🙄 Are lower-ranked items unviable?

Of course not. Every item that we mention here is decent enough to be considered, it's just that the first one is obviously the most beneficial.
