THIS THREAD IS NOW POST CAPPED!
If you wish to discuss moonkiny things and don't wish to make a separate thread, you may do so in the soon-to-be-new-sticky (which also includes the level 85 survival guide) here:
The main body of this guide has not been updated to reflect 5.0 stuff. There will be a full and complete guide for level 90 PvE once MoP is released.
How to get advice/help
1. Read the entire guide, and make sure that your armory reflects that you have done so (have generally correct gems, enchants, reforges, spec, glyphs).
2. Make a post on your druid (or provide an armory link) while logged out in your balance gear and spec.
3. Give information that is relevant to your problem. Descriptions of your rotation, raid make ups, combat logs, extenuating circumstances... the more you tell us, the better our advice will be.
4. Be polite to the people helping you. Even if you disagree with them, they took time out of their lives to help. Being rude or defensive will make it less likely that people will want to help you.
If you, for whatever reason, wish to contact me privately, you may send me a PM on either themoonkinrepository.com or theincbear.com/forums. My user name is Eluial on both sites and I check both every 1-2 days. Please do not send me an in game mail asking me to add you as a real ID friend or to find you on your server - I likely won't do either.
As World of Warcraft is an ever evolving world, all the information in this guide is subject to change. As gear, encounters and game mechanics change, so will numbers and assessments of talents, items, etc. I will be updating this as much as possible when new information comes out, but if you find anything that is inaccurate, incomplete or simply missing, please let me know in a reasonably polite way. I am not attempting to misinform anyone on purpose, but it's very possible I missed something, or even that I just mistyped it, or that the scary real-life-monster has delayed my updating of the guide. Feedback is always welcome, but trolling is not.
