Here’s our WoW Shadowlands Druid Speed Set for level 60! We’ll show you all of best gear and requirements to have a speed farming druid.
If you’re looking to farm old-world raids and dungeons for gold, transmog, or even just for fun, then druid is your best pick. Equip a speed set with it as well, and you’ll be clearing dungeons faster than Usain Bolt on Azerite juice.
Speed Farming Addons
Here’s some addons related to speed farming.
Monkeyspeed is an addon that will show you your current speed as a percentage of your run speed. It’s a fun and useful addon to use while running a speed set.
LootAppraiser makes farming infinitely more fun by calculating the total value of items that you’ve looted in a specific time period. You can even race other people and try to loot the most gold value.
Best Covenant for Speed Farming
Night Fae is generally the overall best due to the Soulshape ability. This grants you 50% movement speed for a short period, with a low cooldown.
Best Druid Conduit for Speed Farming
There’s one relevant conduit, and it’s called Tireless Pursuit (Finesse). For 3 seconds after leaving Cat Form or Travel Form, you retain up to 40% movement speed.
Best Druid Race for Speed Farming
These are the top four races for druid speed farming
For raw speed, Zandalari Troll is the best due to it having the racial Embrace of Gonk that increases movement speed by 5%.
Night Elves are the best race for the alliance overall, and have a few advantages. Firstly, their racial Quickness grants 2% movement speed. They also have another racial called Touch of Elune that increases their crit rating during the day. This will be useful for the Longstrider azerite armor trait as we’ll be aiming to stack crit for the effect.
Lastly, Night Elves possess possibly one of the most useful farming abilities; Shadowmeld. There are many times when you’ll be stuck in combat, and this will allow you to get out of it instantly.
Dark Iron Dwarf
Dark Iron Dwarves can be great for farming dungeons due to their Dungeon Delver racial, which increases movement speed by 4% while in dungeons. They also have the Mole Machine racial, which can be used as a teleport to a huge amount of places in the world.
Worgens have Darkflight, which grants them 40% speed for 10 seconds on a 10 min minute cooldown.
Best Professions for Speed Farming
You’ll need Northrend Jewelcrafting to craft the Figurine – Ruby Hare trinket, which has 2 sockets for movement speed gems.
You can also make Jeweled Lockpick from Legion Jewelcrafting, which can lockpick chests in dungeons.
Battle for Azeroth
Heart of Azeroth from BFA is required for this speed set. You might also want to unlock world quests for the azerite armor and to level up your necklace.
BFA world quests are unlocked by completing the quest Uniting Kul Tiras (Alliance) or Uniting Zandalar (Horde). If you have BFA world quests unlocked on another character, then the rep requirements can be avoided. Otherwise, you’ll need to get to friendly to complete it.
Head to Earthen Guardian to start the BFA questline, and you’ll unlock the heart and world quests in the same chain.
WoW Shadowlands Druid Speed Set Gear
Now we get to the all-important part; the actual speed set gear! Patch 9.2 made this much easier due to crafters now being able to add speed to crafted gear via Pure-Air Sail Extensions.
These azerite amors have Longstrider, which is a core part of the speed set.
Heart of Azeroth – It’s from the BFA intro questline and is required to activate the azerite gear and Longstrider trait. Level it up by collecting azerite as much as possible for the extra crit. Try to get the Stalwart Battlefield Memento azerite essence power: it increases movement speed by 5%.
You can obtain it from:
- Rank 1: Complete the Quest Drowning the Horde or Drowning the Alliance in Nazjatar.
- Rank 2: Complete the achievement Fighting on Two Fronts and purchase it from the vendor for 20 Nazjatar Battle Commendation.
- Rank 3: Learn Rank 2 and then complete 10 Weekly Call to Arms quests to collect Call to Arms Distinction. Then purchase it from the vendor for 50 Nazjatar Battle Commendation.
Benthic Spaulders is BoA, so if you already have the pearls on another character, you can buy it and send it over to your speed farming druid.
Benthic Chestguard is BoA, so if you already have the pearls on another character, you can buy it and send it over to your speed farming druid.
Oath of the Elder Druid – Shadowlands legendary. Memory of the Elder Druid can be bought for 1500 honor from the PvP vendor in Oribos. You’ll want to apply it to the highest rank of Umbrahide Armguards with crit and haste. Also, socket it with Straddling Jewel Doublet.
Any boots level 50 or below for Enchant Boots – Minor Speed.
Muirnne’s Stormforged Signet – Shadowlands BoE if it procs +Speed.
