Druids, just a public service announcement thing - if you bump posts with "bump" or repeats or quotes, you can be reported as spamming/trolling and get banned. Bumping is against the forum rules, and if you constantly bump, you run the risk of getting yourself banned, and getting the whole thread deleted.

If you want to bump a post, you need to post something legitimate. Use your post to ask a question, leave a comment, or give a compliment. Don't make it an obvious bump.

So, I won't need to update this too much for level 85, since most of my specs already go to 85. I'll add in talents for ones that don't.

How hard is it to think of random things to say that aren't "bump"? :P

It's not super helpful , but you can see it here:

Updated balance spec, so that all 4 talent specs will carry you all the way to 85

So, I can't link spells with the new wowhead thingy. Bummer, that would have been a super nice feature. *runs off to the suggestions forum*

Nicely done. Leveling a feral druid is so amazingly easy now, barely have time to follow the guide. My troll druid hit 70 this morning, total /played time on him was 3 days, 19 hours, all by questing, except for 3 UK runs at 68. That included lots of time wandering around looking at the new world, leveling 2 professions and all three secondaries and lots of time spent doing Orgrimmar dailies. Looks like I might just be able to hit 80 by Tuesday - 2 weeks real time to level 1-80. Great guide!

I'm glad I could be helpful, and I'm glad that cat leveling is so much fun right now. :)

Thanks so much for doing this, Lissanna! Could someone possibly add the recommended glyphs for Resto Druid? I apologize in advance if I missed them, but they don't seem to be here.

A slight correction, in your Balance section you state spirit increases regen. It actually does not anymore.

I would also argue against Moonglow and Gale Winds for leveling. Moonglow doesn't give significant regen at lower levels when mana costs per spell are rather low, and buffing Typhoon/Hurricane damage is mostly pointless. Genesis is a MUCH better talent than both no matter how you dice it, and Dreamstate is very good after 83 or so.

Spirit should still increase out-of-combat regen for balance druids since that's the base function of the stat. It just doesn't increase in-combat regen. Though its use for balance is obviously as hit rating (with the side benefit of out of combat regen)

When I talk about spirit, I say it provides regen out of combat (which it does).

In addition, mana management at low & mid levels is still important, because it reduces downtime. It may not be as big of a deal for the first handful of levels, or if you have heirloom items, but across time it saves you in the long run.

Genesis really doesn't do something useful for low-levels because you should blow through mobs fast enough that you shouldn't need an increased duration/effect on your DOTs. I get a lot of reports of some people not using DOTs at all as they level up (or at least not treating them as important). The value of genesis is tied to whether or not you rely on DOTs, which I don't at the lowest levels. I think genesis is actually what the guide has people go & pick up in the 80 to 85 grind where it would be more useful.

You are welcome to deviate from my leveling specs and level up however you think best fits your style.
