He asked me what spec he should be playing as he's leveling, and I'm completely clueless as to what I should tell him. I'd hate to give him the wrong advice. I explained to him the druid abilities, and what each spec does at end game, and he was very interested in playing a druid. He liked the ability to switch between every role. He's more-so interested in playing as a feral-tank or feral-dps on the way up to 80.
I will not be leveling with him, as he wants to experience the game 1-80 by himself, without a veteran (if I can call myself that) catering to all his needs. I want to at least help him start out. I would like to give him an idea of how to spec up to 80, and what spec out of the two: feral tank or feral dps would be best for him. Remember, he has never played an MMORPG before, and thus he MIGHT not be very good. I don't know how well he'd do as a tank, but I figured instant queues might be a good thing for him.
So druid friends, what would you suggest to YOUR friend if he was interested in starting up his first MMORPG as a druid? Feral DPS or Feral tank? With that said, what would be a good leveling spec for either of those? Please give me your true opinion, I hope that I am not teased or what have you. I'd really appreciate your help, and so would my friend!
