What type of content do you focus on? [PvE/PvP/Both]
90% PVE & 10% PVP (both mainly as Balance and sometimes Resto)
If PvE, what type of PvE? [Heroics/Raids/Other]
If PvP, what type of PvP? [Arenas, BGs, Rated BGs]
I play casual world PVP and regular BGs.
What are your biggest quality-of-life issues? For instance, no longer requiring ammo could be considered a quality-of-life improvement for hunters.
--Setting up Mushrooms.
--I love the new Tree of Life, but it needs to be permanent again. Seriously, Druids are supposed to be in forms, not putting on a fashion show in raids/parties. You want to show off? Go hook in front of the Bank or the AH in towns where the purpose is to relax, socialize, trade, run errands, etc..
What makes playing your class more fun?
I can sum that up in one word...Doomkin! Nuff said!
...Ok Ok, Typhooning people/mobs off ledges, finally having a silencing spell and the ability to fill any role necessary and shapeshifting.
What makes playing your class less fun?
Innervate sucks and isn't worth casting without Dreamstate or at least Glyphed. I have no issues with mana regen on single target fights and generally save it for the healers, but long AOE fights don't move the Eclipse bar towards the other end to compensate for the high mana cost with Euphoria.
Wild Mushrooms are a fun idea and can do some major AOE dps while Eclipsed...provided that the person kiting the adds, has the luxury of time to find the shrooms in the midst of 10-25 people plus their pets (combat and vanity) and/or that I have the time to predict the route of the kiter, so I can drop the shrooms in their path and hope that the person drags the parade of adds into the shrooms' tiny effect area. It just needs a little work (see wish list).
Thorns and Cyclone have become kinda, meh. I rarely use Cyclone because of diminishing returns. I still throw Thorns around on tanks and kiters, but not like before the change.
Nourish needs to be a shorter cast than Healing Touch please.
Regrowth needs a to have a little longer HOT effect to make it worth casting.
How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
Rotations for Balance and Resto feel fine to me.
What’s on your wish list for your class?
--Updated Moonkin model would be nice.
--Bring back Starfall's splash damage PLEASE.
--Make Solar Beam effect ALL applicable non-boss mobs, not just a few types of casters sprinkled around Azeroth. A Silence should mean a Silence for ALL, not a Silence for Some and Vibrate for Others :P (raids / 5-man heroics...some casters keep casting)
--Ability to run indoors like Shammies.
--Vanish ability for Cat Form (I don't care if we have to use Ghostshrooms as a regeant).
--Ability to pick herbs in Vial of the Sands mount form (requiring the profession as well)...I'd be totally down for passing this on to other races/classes as a unique perk of the mount itself as it is rather expensive to make.
----------I don't want this post to seem like mostly just QQing in the LESS FUN section, so here's some suggestions in hopes that they'll at least give some ideas.----------
--Balance needs some help from Mastery. Instead of having Mastery be completely dependant on Total Eclipse, how about splitting it up so that we get a constant buff (like other classes) from mastery of say 20% [that's only 4% more than current] and WHEN we reach either side of Total Eclipse, we get another 1 - 1.5% [that's .5 - 1% less than current] bonus damage for the duration of the Eclipse per point of mastery. ...This would help our dps be more constant.
--If the cost of Hurricane can't be lowered, can we at least have it Unleashed like the Shammies' Unleashed Lightning Glyph?
--Innervate sucks so instead, from a Balance perspective, can we have our AOE spells effect our Eclipse bar? Say each mob struck by the aoe (whether Hurricane, Starfall, Wild Mushrooms) would generate 0.5-1.0 Solar/Lunar energy per strike to helps us get to Euphoria faster?
--Wild Mushrooms Would it be possible to make it keep the aoe, but be targetable? Like throwing them onto a tank or mob that's in the middle of all the action and THEN hitting detonate?
What spells do you use the least?
Thorns, Cyclone, Regrowth, Soothe, Entangling Roots (because it breaks after like one hit).
I didn't read all 70+ pages, so sorry if there's repetition in this post. Just wanted to finally write something from the 7 years of wonderful WoW time.
