Moonfarespam: The Moonkin PvE Guide
Also god forbid you die and get brezzed, its nice to be able to innervate to 50% mana.
I think graylo said it best in his blog:
"In a strange way patch 4.2 showed us how poor a talent Lunar Shower has been all along. Prior to the latest patch we always picked it up because there was no reason not to. The other options we had were fairly poor, and it did provide a nice utility. Once Blizzard added a downside to picking up the talent, we had to reevaluate it's benefits and the truth became clear. The main thing people were using Lunar Shower for was to delay Eclipse transitions. Since that was being removed as a possibility in 4.2 then Lunar Shower didn't provide a whole lot of value."

I don't understand either, because it's not considered a mandatory talent...
Although shown in the spec (in order to advance down the tree), the following talents are NOT mandatory:
About regen talents:
Euphoria, Moonglow, Dreamstate and Furor (in the feral tree) are the 4 'regen' talents. Euphoria also has a throughput component, with the extra eclipse energy proc, and is therefore a mandatory talent; in essence, we get the mana return for free.
Dreamstate is now the strongest regen talent, since you are very unlikely to give your innervate away anymore. Furor still has good synergy with Dreamstate, so if you find yourself routinely going OOM, grab Furor in addition to Dreamstate. Moonglow can actually be a good option if you are normally good on mana, but run into trouble while multidotting.
08/06/2011 09:25 PMPosted by Lifelighthow is it a dps loss what else can I put it in, I never drop below 70% in any boss fight
You can put in a lot of effort and make it not be a loss in most situations, but the benefits you get from the talent are so small that it's honestly not worth the effort to put that much thought into AoE. Our AoE is already a lot more complicated than most classes.
And, honestly, if you're not dropping below 70% anymore, you're probably doing something wrong on fights like beth'tilac and rhyolith. In both those fights you should be spending all of P1 in solar eclipse, which means you're not getting any mana from euphoria.
Fiery Quintessence.... 1.5 min CD
Rune of Zeth.... 1 min CD and more INT
does the 383 spirit outweigh the 383 crit (both going to haste assuming) and increased INT on use?
Zeth = 319.25
quit = 319.17
with more int coming out of the rune the longer the fight goes... (assuming im thinking clearly)
(obviously im assuming i get horribly unlucky with bale and Loot Council)
Hey! I read if we needed advice/help to post here wait a bit and what not so here's my question.
I leveld cat way up to 80 and I've healed somewhat too, decided to try boomkin out and so far it's pretty fun. Probably a very nooby question, but the eclipse bar and such...Do we need to swtich back and forth or can we stay at one the whole time, I don't really understand why we have two sides. Is it because of procs making us do more damage then another school of spell or?
So, the solar side will increase the damage of your nature spells, and the lunar side will increase the damage of your arcane spells. But when you're in the solar side, casting wrath (our nature damage nuke) will move the bar towards lunar, and when you're in the lunar side, casting starfire (our arcane damage nuke) will move the bar toward the solar side. So simply by taking advantage of the damage increase of the side you're on, you'll end up moving the bar.
Anyways...My guild and i are working on Ragnaros, and i am here to plead for a couple of tips from much better Boomkins than i..I think i will drop the current spec i have and pickup Dreamstate, and change my Starsurge glyph with Wrath..are these changes warranted, or are they bad?
Even though i rarely post i am a avid reader of your post's/guide's Eluial, and iu want to add you do a great job with them. If i could get a quick reply to this it would be great considering we pull at 8:30 ^_^..
