So, I'm not posting on my druid because his gear is kind of embarrassing, since I'm transitioning from balance to resto, but I have a question. I keep reading about moving the shroom, but how do you do it? Do you just recast it or am I missing something painfully obvious? Also, I remember way back when I healed Kara that resto had an actual tree form. Why did it get removed?


You can glyph to get a cosmetic tree form that's the old tree form graphic (if you want to look like a tree all the time).

For the shroom, you can just re-cast it to move it.

You may not know that there is a minor glyph for the mushroom that allows you to place it where ever you want.

I don't know why tree form got removed, though it was at the start of Cataclysm. When they re-did all the talents to a 41 point system, they put it as a 3m cooldown.

And I figured out the mushroom thing. I should probably start reading my spell descriptions, huh?

I can't post in the Alpha forums, so I'm posting to you here.

Thank you very much for your Alpha feedback post, they are excellent reads.

Since I don't feel like making a new thread just for some general questions I'm sure I should know the answer too, here it is.

This is my new druid, basically boosted him this past weekend. After reading this guide and given my gear, I should be gemming for a lot of spirit and mastery right? Until probably Flex gear then go for the 13k haste breakpoint? And I want to do CMs on this guy for the awesome transmog, is there a particular gear set or talents that are preferable for CMs? Or should they be doable in normal raid gear without changing gems? provided you have enough spirit through trinkets and stuff.

If you're just going for gold, normal raid gear with normal gems/reforging should be good. As for spirit, you really don't need spirit in CMods (Amber FTW!).

Fun fact.
if you use a SoF juiced regrowth to refresh your LB stack it gives the SoF haste buff to your LB tick = moar omen of clarity procs!

Basically what druidboii said about CM's, I know I did all mine perfectly fine in my raid gear, and since it all scales down in ilvl anyways you can even farm LFR/flex/etc for the pieces you want. Go for the most gems you can since those don't scale down. Amber is your friend, very important.

As for your other part of the question, you're mostly right for the basic foundation. I'd go for the 6652 breakpoint haste at least, then go for as much spirit as you feel you need, then stack mastery. Once you get to the 550+ or so range (this'll depend on the stats you've managed to get on your gear too. Ex: All optimal gear stats will enable you to go for the 13163 breakpoint sooner than if you've only managed to scrape half your gear with crit b/c thats all you could get your hands on), you can head for that 13163 point whilst sacrificing some other stats, but if you feel like you're sacrificing a lot more mastery/spirit than you feel comfortable with, then you could possibly wait a little longer.
Thats the thing with healing (at least for druids atm), only the haste caps are set in stone, how much spirit/mastery you go for is more flexible to how much you feel is needed, though don't go way overboard with spirit (like the 21k spirit druid I saw once, lol), chances are at that point you need to reconsider your playing style. Though I saw a 580+ resto druid once with only the 3043 haste cap.... don't do that =P

So druids blanket the raid with Rejuvenate right? But does the druid have to maintain them or not?
