If you’re a Balance Druid in World of Warcraft Classic Season of Discovery, there are certain Runes you need under your belt, and Eclipse is one of them.

Optimize Your Balance Druid Rotation with the Eclipse Rune in WoW Classic Season of Discovery

The Power of Eclipse

Eclipse is a powerful Belt Rune that enhances your Balance Druid rotation in WoW Classic Season of Discovery phase two. It increases the critical strike chance of your next two Wraths by 30 percent. Additionally, it reduces the cast time of your next Starfire by one second. These effects can stack up to four times.

Compatibility with Starsurge Rune

Eclipse works excellently with the Starsurge Rune. The Starsurge Rune benefits from talents and effects that influence Wrath or Starfire. This combination is mandatory for your Balance Druid.

Obtaining the Eclipse Rune

To obtain the Eclipse Rune in WoW Classic Season of Discovery, follow these steps:

  1. Travel to the middle of Desolace and locate the Extinguished Campfire northwest of the Kodo Graveyard at coordinates 47, 54.
  2. Interact with the Extinguished Campfire to receive the quest called Highway Robbery.
  3. Turn in the quest at Bibbly F’utzbuckle northeast of your location at coordinates 63, 39.
  4. Bibbly F’utzbuckle will give you another quest called On the Lam.
  5. Head over to the inn in Booty Bay and find an Orc NPC named Tokal.
  6. Tokal will give you the quest called Cherry for Your Thoughts?. Purchase a Cherry Grog from the bartender and bring it to Tokal.
  7. After completing Cherry for Your Thoughts?, Tokal will give you another quest called No Honor Among Thieves.
  8. Follow the quest to the waterfront between Arathi Highlands and Wetlands.
  9. Locate the rowboat at coordinates 53, 90 in Arathi Highlands and interact with it to teleport to the shore east of Arathi Highlands.
  10. On the pier in this secret area, you’ll find Illari Duskfeather. If you’re a Night Elf, there’s a dialog option to agree with her and avoid combat. Otherwise, you’ll have to fight her. She’s level 40, so consider bringing friends if you’re underleveled.
  11. Once you’ve spoken to Illari or defeated her, you’ll receive Illari’s Key.
  12. Use Illari’s Key to open Illari’s Loot Cache by the nearby shack.
  13. Inside the Jewel-Encrusted Box found in Illari’s Loot Cache, you’ll discover the Rune of the Stars, which teaches you the Eclipse ability.
