Eclipse is a level 11 Balance druid passive ability. It provides a pair of empowerment effects that are interlinked with two of their casted spells, [Wrath] and [Starfire]. In addition to that relationship, both types of Eclipse also increase a type of spell damage according to [Mastery: Total Eclipse].

Casting two non empowered [Starfire] grants Solar Eclipse while casting two non empowered [Wrath] grants Lunar Eclipse. After gaining one type of Eclipse it cannot be granted again until gaining the other type.

Tips and tactics

  • Because of the mechanics of astral damage, either type of eclipse will provide the full Mastery damage bonus to abilities with that type, which includes both main Astral Power spenders.
