As Azeroth’s noble guardians of nature and protectors of the Emerald Dream, druids have a unique aesthetic. Their gear sets usually feature green and brown earth tones and are adorned with vines, branches, horns, feathers, fur, or astral imagery. Which transmog sets you prefer may depend on the type of druid you are. Feral cats and guardian bears may prefer fur, balance druids may feel better in feathers or crescent moons, and restoration druids might want something that features wood or leaves. Whether your druid loves the primal nature of Feralas or the tranquility of Moonglade, we have something in this list for you!
Best Druid Transmogs in Dragonflight, Ranked Good to Best
Let’s dive into the list. We’ll be ranking these from our least to most favorite set.
Valorous Dreamwalker Battlegear
To start our list we have an elegant gold and green set from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. The Valorous Dreamwalker Battlegear set, or Tier 7, comes from the Naxxramas and Vault of Archavon raids. This version of the set drops in 25-man while a copper and purple version drops in 10-man.
This set will appeal to druids who want a more noble look as opposed to the primitive appearance of most druid sets. Its detailed filigree patterns are dressy enough for any occasion while the green color scheme makes clear your affiliation with the Emerald Dream.
The Raging Tempest set is new with Dragonflight. Earned through Primal Storm events, this set lets you display your support for the Emerald Dragonflight, who have close ties with druids.
The dragon skull helmet is the most interesting feature here. Just try not to think too much about where it came from or why you’re wearing it.
Stormrider’s Vestments, or Tier 11, comes from the first set of raids of the Cataclysm expansion: Bastion of Twilight, Blackwing Descent, and Throne of the Four Winds. The blue version pictured drops from Normal mode while a more muted brown set drops in Heroic. There’s also a red recolor with flaming orange shoulders available from Battle for Azeroth‘s island expeditions.
The feathered shoulders are the showstopper, featuring a crackling lightning animation. The bird helmet will especially appeal to moonkins. If you’re not fond of skirts, there’s a matching chest piece that can be crafted through Leatherworking that will let you wear the leggings instead.
Here we have a particularly primal looking druid set from the Warlords of Draenor expansion. Oathclaw Wargarb drops in the Hellfire Citadel raid, with the fel green version pictured above appearing on Mythic difficulty. There are multiple recolors in more natural and muted tones which drop from the lower difficulties of the raid as well as PVP.
The leather and fur will appeal to feral and guardian druids in particular while the horned helm and shoulders send a clear message that you are not to be trifled with.
Obsidian Gladiator’s Leather Armor
Now we have our second set from the current expansion, Dragonflight, and the newest set on this list. Obsidian Gladiator’s Leather Armor is the Season 2 PVP set. There are multiple recolors of the set available, with green and blue coming from PVP and orange, brown, red, and purple versions dropping in the Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible raid.
The colorful feather-like leaf motif is unlike anything else in the game and is accented by interesting wooden vine patterns that culminate in the large horns on the helmet. The strange dark mask evokes an owl peeking out from a hollow tree, making this set especially well suited to a moonkin.
Conqueror’s Nightsong Battlegear
Taking a break from feathers and leaves, we have something a little more celestial from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. The Conqueror’s Nightsong Battlegear set drops from Ulduar, with the glowing version pictured above dropping in 25-man and a less impressive version dropping in 10-man.
With its glowing crescent moons and orbs, this set makes particular sense for a balance druid, especially one who uses Glyph of Stars to run around in Astral Form.
Vestments of the Haunted Forest
And now for something a little creepier from the Mists of Pandaria expansion. The Vestments of the Haunted Forest, or Tier 15, drops in the Throne of Thunder raid. A moody blue version drops in Heroic while a red version drops in Normal and a green recolor could be obtained through Raid Finder.
The gnarled branches and dangling insects of the helm and shoulders offer a unique variation on the common forest motif for druid gear. The skeletal appearance of the rib cage and glowing open-mouthed mask give the impression of an undead treant, which could be an interesting twist for a restoration druid.
This animalistic set originated in the Burning Crusade expansion. Thunderheart Raiment, or Tier 6, drops in the Mount Hyjal and Black Temple raids. There is a green recolor of the set available in the same raids, and a blue version from PVP season 3 which is no longer available.
The helm and shoulders resemble a totem carved in wood, lending this set especially well to a tauren druid, although any moonkin may also find the bird’s head appealing.
Primal Gladiator’s Dragonhide Armor
The second set on our list from Warlords of Draenor, the Primal Gladiator’s Dragonhide Armor set came from PVP season 1 of that expansion. In addition to the green color shown above there is also an orange recolor as well as a vivid red one featuring a much scarier looking mask.
The verdant green colors of this set bring to mind a lush but poisonous forest, with the spider-like belt forming the crown jewel. A great set for a restoration druid or anyone looking to cosplay as Poison Ivy from Batman.
Most of the class order hall sets from the Legion expansion are underwhelming to say the least, but the druid set is actually quite appealing. Collecting all of the pieces requires completing your class order hall campaign, which is a fun way to explore the druid lore a little more deeply. There’s also an impressive recolor available through Challenge Mode dungeons.
This set deviates from the typical green and brown color scheme with a red and orange one that is complemented by white fur along the seems of the garment. If you like this set it will be for the simple hood and the crescent moon accents.
Continuing with the Legion expansion we have a set from the Antorus, the Burning Throne raid. The green version of Bearmantle Battlegear, or Tier 21, drops from the Mythic difficulty of the raid. More muted recolors without the glowing green accents are available from the lower difficulties and through PVP.
This set is fully themed for a guardian druid, with bear claws on the feet, hands, shoulders, and knees and a bear’s head for a helmet. Ursoc himself would be proud.
Now we’re going all the way back to the beginning with the first raid set from vanilla World of Warcraft. Cenarion Raiment, or Tier 1, dropped in the Molten Core raid. A yellow recolor is available from dungeons in the Burning Crusade expansion.
It may not look like much, but this was peak druid in the early days of the game. The leafy shoulders and horn-like branches on the helm are still the quintessential druid look.
Garb of the Astral Warden
The Legion expansion is known for having some of the best gear sets, and here we have yet another one for druids. The Garb of the Astral Warden set drops in the Nighthold and Emerald Nightmare raids. The version pictured drops on Mythic difficulty, and six different recolors are available from the lower difficulties and PVP.
Night elf and druid lore are intrinsically linked, and this set has a very strong night elf vibe. The helmet is similar to those worn by the Wardens, who are the night elves’ special police force. Crescent moons adorn the shoulders, whose feathers make it look like you could take flight at any moment (and you can – you’re a druid, after all).
Living Wood Battlegear
Second in our list is this set from the Warlords of Draenor expansion. It drops in the Blackrock Foundry and Highmaul raids, with the green version appearing on Mythic and some less interesting orange and purple recolors dropping in Normal and Heroic respectively. There’s also a version of the chest that will let you wear pants.
The helm looks like something out of the Thor movies. But the big draw here is the dragonfly wings on the back. There’s nothing else like them in the game.
And now it’s time for number one! The Nordrassil Raiment set, or Tier 5, from the Burning Crusade expansion is obtained through the Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep raids. A recolor was also made available from PVP season 2 of TBC.
This is a simple and straight-forward set that is instantly recognizable as druid gear, with its carved wooden detailing and horned crown. It’s a universal set that can work for any druid, but especially a restoration druid. The restoration artifact weapon, G’Hanir the Mother tree, matches this set perfectly.
