About the Author
My name is Guiltyas, I raid in Pure on Turalyon Horde, where I recently passed Trial. I've played feral since Wrath when I picked it up as main. I'm well respected in the Feral community and you can find me talking about Feral (passionately) in a few different places,
, and of course the
I enjoy walks on the beach and this is really what makes me reliable on the subject of Ferals! I do not own a cat :(
Recommended Feral Druid Gear
What is the BiS Feral Druid gear?
With many different sources of gearing and loot scarcity in Shadowlands, targeting your absolute Best in Slot gear isn't entirely realistic; instead, we've created a Best in Slot list from the ideal Feral Druid raid drops found in Shadowlands, from Mythic Dungeons, to help you decide what to prioritize.
While raid drops are generally the most reliable way of getting high item level gear, many other items can be just as good if not better, so you should reference the stat priorities listed on the
to help determine your own BiS gear based on what is available to you.
Castle Nathria Best in Slot Gear for Feral Druid
Dungeon Best in Slot Gear for Feral Druid
Based on the gear that you actually have, what is optimal may vary quite significantly. I strongly recommend that you
sim your own character
to make gearing decisions.
There is also a variety of crafted gear that you can pick up to enhance these pieces.
Legendaries are powerful items in various slots that will grant you with an additional bonus. You will currently only be able to use a single legendary. Check out the
for more information on those and what to choose.
Best Feral Druid Trinkets
There aren't really any particularly special trinket combinations. Just target the best trinkets you can pick up. Sims will help address which options are best for you.
The Darkmoon Card
will likely be a solid choice early on as usual. It will give you a (deck of cards) randomized boost in Haste, and is typically a solid choice. It may be an even better choice if you can pick it up for a reasonable price.
As far as dungeon trinkets go,
are both fine choices that you can pick up among others.
For a comparison on damage contribution from trinkets, check out these simulation data:
Best Feral Druid Weapons
Feral uses two-handed weapons, so you'll only need a single weapon. There are a variety of weapons you'll be able to pick up from dungeons, with the best options being
. Ideally, you'll want to target a weapon with crit; however, it won't be a huge margin between each weapon, so pick up the highest iLevel you can.
In Raids, Druids share a weapon token with Hunter and Mage. The token for Castle Nathria is
, which can drop from
(Huntsman Altimor) and
which drops from
at a higher item level! With the token, you'll go to your covenant sanctum and pick up a weapon that matches your covenant.
Best Feral Druid Weapon Token
The clear best token is
due to it's higher item level and the importance of weapon damage for feral (basically all melee specs).
Best Items to Upgrade with Valor Points in Shadowlands
Points is a returning currency brought back with Patch 9.0.5. With this new currency, players are able to upgrade items from Mythic+ Dungeon, either from running Mythic Keystones or from the Great Vault, up to item level 220. Similarly to
, Valor has a cap that is increased every week during the Season.
You can obtain Valor by completing Mythic+ dungeons or completing daily callings. You can learn more about Valor in our in-depth guide.
Earning and Spending Valor Points
With Valor added in 9.0.5 there's now a solid way to fill in slots through PvE content. Ideally you'll want to target and upgrade your best trinkets or weapons and then fill out any holes in your gear with other slots.
One of the best trinkets available to Ferals, there's nothing complicated in it's use it just adds a lot of damage on proc.
Another good trinket that just boils down to a good damage proc.
While in some situations this trinket can be a bit of a simbait it's by far the best option when it triggers optimally, and competitive even wh en it does not.
This is the best itemized feral weapon available from dungeons.
This is the 2nd best itemised feral weapon from dungeons.
Alternatives to Castle Nathria Pieces
Castle nathria doesn't have the MOST well itemized gear, so you can fill out some slots with valor. It's not worth replacing higher item level pieces so if you're raiding mythic it might not be worth it , but if you do have some lower ilvl slots you can fill it out
The only helm in Nathria drops from Sire and also happens to have pretty bad stats, This helm has a very solid stat profile and allows you to fix that hole in your gear.
While there are two chests from Nathria they both have fairly mediocre stat profiles, These are the best alternatives you can get from M+.
All the rings in Nathria have awful stats, these are your best two options from M+ (conveniently from the same dungeon).
Best PvP Gear for Feral Druids in PvE
One of the most popular ways of gearing in Shadowlands is PvP. Unlike raiding and Mythic+, PvP provides players with a deterministic way of obtaining gear, making it more streamlined and less random than the other two high-end gearing options.
There are two main currencies for PvP gearing:
is used exclusively to purchase the base items at ilvl 200, while
is used to upgrade those base items to higher item levels based on your highest current rating in Rated PvP.
has a cap on how much you can obtain, similar to
, which increased every week during the Season, while
has no cap.
Learn more about PvP gearing in our in-depth guide, including ilvl brackets and item upgrade costs.
Conquest and PvP Gearing
Feral likes crit, a lot. Fortunately a decent amount of PvP gear has crit on it, even if it's the lower weighted stat. PvP is an all around solid way to fix holes in your gear with minimal stress or fuss.
Is one of the best on use trinkets, easy to obtain, lines up with just about everything on the planet. and it has CRIT. easy piece to pick up.
With PvP’s unique ability to offer a max of 233 item level weapons without defeating the end boss of a tier on Mythic, those weapons are always going to be worth acquiring if you can earn the rating. Below 226 ilvl, however, there are better itemized options from the Valor System and Heroic Sire Denathrius.
Best Legendary Items for Feral Druid
In Shadowlands, players are able to craft customizable Legendary Items. In order to craft these items, players must collect tradeskill materials and
from Torghast and bring them to the Runecarver.
