I bind it to Inc+NV+OnUseTrinket+Synapse; in addition, it's on my bars. I typcially use it with Starfall exclusively.

Can't get my hands on a Jade Spirit enchant yet, I assume Windsong is what I'd go for in the meantime?

Personally I use a similar macro which I find infinitely more useful than your use of "Nature's Swiftness" and I thought I would share it:

/cast Nature's Swiftness
/cast Rebirth


You can add any modifiers you want to it, it's just a basic instant battle rez which saves you some down-time and allows you to quickly get up another person. Personally I value this over the instant heal, but it wouldn't hurt to have both on your action bar.

I take it we still want MH/OH than a 2H weapon?

Preferably, yes.

So, I was weighing my options on this one since I just picked up the LFR 2H from Lei Shi http://www.wowhead.com/item=86893

Here is my current gear http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/hyjal/Rathbreave/simple

I have been holding out hope for this http://www.wowhead.com/item=86865 which does not want to drop either in my first run, with or without Elder coins or subsequent runs with Elder coins.

The reason I had doubts was the difference in DPS between what I have and the new 2H I just picked up. After running wrathcalcs, I see the 2H is better DPS than what I current have, but if I get the MH from Grand Empress, that will better DPS than both my current and the 2H by about 2K DPS.

As much as I would love the 489 items, our guild just isn't that far in progress.

Any other thoughts about this?

If you know you will get a better weapon soon, hold onto your gem. The difference is a small amount, so don't beat yourself up over it. In addition, the Lei Shi staff only needs to be upgraded twice, while the MH/OH must be upgraded 4 times to achieve the same results.

There's a reason I came here and worked with wrathcalcs to see what was better. Knowing the MH/OH is a better combo, I will be saving the gem. I guess if the LFR MH/OH w/ the legendary gem is better than a LFR 2H, does that hold same for the 489+ items? Also, should I replace my LFR MH with non-Sha Touched MHs and then once I get the 10N MH from Empress (thinking way out in the future) then purchase another gem?

Yes, if you can afford it, buy another gem when you need it.

What do you guys use to see which piece of gear is better than the others? I used to use http://graymatterwow.blogspot.com/p/moonkin-raiding-gear-list-as-of-9242012.html

but I don't think that guy is around anymore...

I go off the practical use of an item and it's stats. A little bit of napkin math helps too. Since Moonkin is so rough to simulate, it comes down to your own experience in some cases. I hated the Sha of Fear caster trinket, it was pretty bad to the point I passed it to an OS Moonkin in the raid.

I'm really too nooby in this game to do all that. I need a guide or list to follow pretty much :(

Hey fellow Boomies! Long time reader here.

How is my gear and my reforging? I've gone full crit because I have become convinced that we are a full crit class after seeing numerous guides and quotes from better Balance Druids. Have I gone too far with crit reforging or have I done the right thing?

Also, being a noob poster to the forums I'm not sure how too link but I was wondering if purchasing the blossom of pure snow. Would I be better off with the 15 second proc ability or the passive 904 critical hit?

Cheers :)

Are you sure that hurricane/astral storm is the way to go for wind
Wind Lord Mel'jarak? Also from what I read on http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1204273-Balance-T14H-BiS-list?p=19367488&viewfull=1#post19367488. The Kri'tak, Imperial Scepter of the Swarm is better than Jin'ya, Orb of the Waterspeaker. I was also wondering how you set up your UI? Oh and is WoWreforge working again?

Multi-DOT is better when only 4 targets are alive. Hurricane is better with 5+ targets.

Is it, but only by a little bit. In addition, you'll need to upgrade your MH and OH (4 upgrades) compared to just the 2hd staff (2 upgrades)

There probably are, both on youtube an written guides. I'd do a quick search. But also feel free to ask here about anything in particular you're trying to do and can't get. I use both pretty extensively.
