If it were to be anything specific, I'd only be able to say a well rounded buff to all rotations spells, slightly heavier w/dot buffs....and turn that starsurge up, wayyy up, its lvl90 time, the room should shake now w/our wonderful starsurge crits....I may not get full BiS b4 this tier is over, but I do try :)

We don't need a buff as much as we need a better way to maintain our dps on high movement fights as that's usually what drops our dps.

On most other fights I'm plenty competitive with the other classes around my gear level and on a few I either am top or very close to top of the meters.

Just because we're not FOTM super amazing without trying dps does not mean we need to join some of the other classes on the buff>nerf>buff>nerf cycle. :P

It would have to be good enough as is to warrant being nerfed, if anything DOTS need to be buffed.

cant buff starsurge alot. it has a chance to become instant cast. and it hitting for alot will cause problems in pvp. yes yes i know, i dont pvp myself either, but u cannot just ignore one side of the game to balance the other side.

we need a fix on our aoe. its far too clunky right now. and our multidotting is not so bad but needs polishing. Polishing as in the theme is present but not well planned out, our dot times are fairly lousy right now. in an ideal scenario (starsurge crits) we can make it to another eclipse in 1 dot application other wise we have to dot twice. mashing it in with natures grace which procs moment you gain eclipse. you are looking at 4gcds within the span of 6 to 5 seconds, just to redot. pretty painful imo.

Perhaps if shrooms spread dots, like pestilence or blood boil does.

and lastly, astral communion needs to be castable while on the move. shouldnt just be a pvp 4set bonus.

Boomkins are in no way terrible right now, but I think there is a lot of mini-fixes that we could for both QoL changes and a small improvement to damage.

Lunar Shower as movement DPS is dull. That's really the only complaint I have. From a PvE presepctive, most movement does not last 4 GCDs (3 casts of MF/SnF to stack to max, 4th is using MF/SnF at max stacks). Moonkin is extremely unforgiving, especially with DOTs. Putting forward twice the effort for half the result isn't ideal gameplay; though, I'm fine with this notion. Personally, Lunar Shower needs to be scrapped for a Malefic Grasp/Lightning Bolt copy. A short-term buff like Spiritwalker's Grace would be fine, given it last only 6 seconds with a 30sec cooldown or so.

In 5.1 the damage and spell power coefficients of wrath, starfire, and starsurge were all increased slightly. It's not a big dps increase but it is something.

Movement is the biggest issue. The single target isn't that bad and aoe feels clunky but doable. Movement is the overwhelming problem and the only spec that comes close to the same impairment seems to be Spriest, but boomkin also has to deal with issues of not moving eclipse while losing natures grace and hasted dots.

Ok, so yes, the main thing that I have seen mentioned by others is, Balance DPS on the move is no fun, the main part of wanting Dot buffs is to help maintain DPS on the move, I had to kite for garalon last wk and it was pretty much MF/SF spams w/WE SS procs happened. ANd look I'm last dps, previous Garalon fights I did not have to kite and maintained my #s ok...Mainly for me, it has been having to watch my #s plunge as soon as I have to move, I've tried and tried to keep them up, but they plunge no matter what I do, when I have to move, take the 1st boss in HoF, Attenuation, til that part of the fight my #s are great but when the only up keep I have on that part of the fight is MF/SF and SS procs. I once again find myself fallin to the bottom of the pack for DPS. I am starting to become more aware of people wanting constructive ideas for issues w/WE spec you are talking bout, for me at the momment, conveying my frustations constructivly, is a little bit difficult, being so new to using the forums, I have been running Balance for a cpl of yrs, but I was not as focused on PVE as I am now, so I've learned to Luv forums for any info that I may want to look up about what is currently happening in WoW. And I do appriectiate the feedback. But I am wanting to be heard and see what I am doin right and what I am doin wrong on any OP that I put up.

While we are at it, can we get something a little more entertaining then spamming hurricane/astral storm over and over again in AoE situations? It's seriously the reason I quit trying to gear this guy.

Bring back shrooms + sunfire spam and I'd be one happy boomkin =D

My main in Wotlk was a druid. When we were raiding 10 man heroic icc working on getting bosses down in 25 man heroic icc. I was in all 251 gear with some 264's. I loved my boomkin, one of my favorites ever, but compared to my guilds mages and shadow priests the boomkin (in similar gear) could never come close on single target bosses.

That was in Wotlk so take it for what you will.

If I play a druid anymore its in resto.

Nerf moonkin multidotting.


What?? Why? Moonkin multi-dotting is nowhere near what it was last expansion. In every situation I've been since 5.0, I find that Warriors, DK's, and Hunters all do considerably more damage/DPS than I can on a pack of trash mobs. In fact, I do better DPS just chain-casting Hurricane than I do with multi-dotting. It's actually a complete reversal from last expansion - my single-target damage is pretty darn good now, but my multi-target damage is sub-par.
