For arena, would you agree to always using FB/FT running warr/enhance/xx? or would u say it's situational?

ALSO THIS IS JUST MY OPINION(WHICH I STRONGLY SUPPORT)
One thing that always bugs me about playing enhance is our lacking in stuns. The only stun we have is the 2 second baby stun from our wolves which I feel isn't enough and only supports lava lash so that it can't rng miss and interrupting juked cast or shear on cd. My ideas on how they can change that is by adding 2 more seconds on our puppy stun or a proc on earth shock to stun the target for 2-3 seconds. Please comment with opinions, ideas, ect.

Why not resist totem instead? Also if u run with a warrior u can replace strength with just earthbind totem y'know?

I almost never drop wf/ft. The damage to me is worth it. You should be keeping frost shock up pretty much all the time and your warrior should have piercing / hamstring up constantly.

Anyone remotely serious about arena is spell pen capped anyway. The vicious spell pen cloak/neck (every caster has one) will negate your resist 100%.

Absolutely not. Why would you waste one of your valuable SNARE BREAKING COOLDOWNS with your 4 totem drop? Use SOTE and he can use commanding.

Does 195 spell penetration for Enhance do anything for us besides just a hit cap for resto druids?

Just curious because I'm on the edge about getting it.. thanks in advance!

A good chunk of your damage comes from spells. Then you have hex, windshear, totems (don't think they get your spell pen though) that can all be fairly game breaking.

You just want to make sure you never get resisted. It is essentially just an extension of the hit cap in pvp though.

Clous, do you still consider DMC:H to be better than Fluid Death or the on-use Agi trinket?

Just get 2 Stormy Ocean Sapphires, one Vivid Dream Emerald, and the +70 cloak enchant.
