Mar 20 Druid leveling guide for Legion (v. 7.0) The 7.0 Legion leveling guide is available on my blog: http://www.restokin.com/druid-leveling-guide/ Druid Leveling Guide v7.0 Originally, v.1.12 was posted by Jaegor, Feral Druid, Dark Iron<US> Updated and maintained post-2.1 by: Lissanna, balance/restoration druid, Elune <US> Druid leveling guide – Feral and Balance are recommended as solo specs for questing. Introduction: This guide is for new druids starting out at level 1. It is specifically geared towards build construction for PvE leveling from 1 to 100. The first thing to understand is that feral is the most efficient talent specilaization for solo leveling, especially early in your leveling process with a new character. Feral druids level in cat form, and attack their opponents up close in melee range using attacks with Energy as a resource and combo points for big finishing moves. Balance druids can level solo perfectly fine, even at lower levels before you get access to moonkin form. However, you will have to drink more often. This is still a good option if you enjoy being a caster, where you can hit them with damage spells. Group leveling: If you are leveling up in instances, sometimes you want to be a tank (a guardian druid focusing on bear form), or a healer (a resto druid focusing on using healing spells). Keep in mind that it will be significantly more difficult to solo quest as a resto or guardian druid. Keep in mind that you can have more than one specialization that you play. After level 10, you can freely change between specilizations (such as swapping between feral for solo questing and guardian for tanking in dungeons).

Mar 6 Moonfarespam: The Moonkin Guide (7.3.x) ... ... ... Please “Like” ALL the pages of the main guide! (Helps the guide stand out in searches.) How to get advice/help: 1. Read the entire guide! Make sure that your armory reflects that you have done so (have generally correct gems, enchants, talents and glyphs). 2. Make a post on your druid (or provide an armory link) while logged out in your Balance gear and spec! 3. Give information that is relevant to your problem. Descriptions of your rotation, raid make ups, combat logs, extenuating circumstances... the more you tell us, the better our advice will be. Be sure to provide specific examples. 4. Be polite to the people helping you. Even if you disagree with them, they took time out of their lives to help. Being rude or defensive will make it less likely that people will want to help you. General Notes: As World of Warcraft is an ever-evolving world, all the information in this guide is subject to change. As gear, encounters and game mechanics change, so will numbers and assessments of talents, items, etc. I will be updating this as much as possible when new information comes out, but if you find anything that is inaccurate, incomplete or simply missing, please let me know in a reasonably polite way. I am not attempting to misinform anyone on purpose, but it's very possible I missed something, or even that I just mistyped it, or that the scary real-life-monster has delayed my updating of the guide. Feedback is always welcome, but trolling is not.

Mar 15, 2017 Resto PVE Healing Guide for Legion (v 7.0) Restoration PVE healing Guide – v. 7.0 - Based on Level 110 end-game for Legion. A short ‘survival guide’ designed for level 100s on patch day available at: http://www.restokin.com/2016/07/resto-druid-legion-survival-guide-for-7-0/ 7.0 Spell Changes for resto druids New Mastery: Harmony • The Draenor mastery ability was removed & replaced with a new mastery for Legion. • This new mastery instead increases your healing done by ALL spells for each HOT on your target (e.g., rejuv, lifebloom, wild growth, regrowth’s HOT portion). So, having 2 HOTs on the target will heal more than 1 HOT on the target. Then, 3 HOTs heal for more than 2 HOTs, and so forth. • SEE section on mastery (LINK HERE). Spell and Ability Changes Removed abilities: • Nature’s Swiftness, mark of the wild, soothe, and genesis are gone. • Dramatically reduced access to baseline off-role damage/utility abilities (NOTE: see the section on level 45 affinity talents for how you can get access to damage abilities for soloing via talents!). • Cyclone: Now only available as a PVP talent at 110. • Most “major” glyphs have been removed (instead, these effects have been baked into abilities, changed into talents, or removed). New abilities: • Innervate has returned. Now allows all spells cast for 10 seconds to be mana-free (usable on yourself or others). • Revitalize: This is now a mass resurrection spell available to healers. Returns all raid or party members out of combat (revive is 1 person out of combat, rebirth is 1 person in combat). This basically replaces Mass Res, which was taken away from non-healers. Modified abilities: • Swiftmend: longer cooldown & larger effect. Swiftmend also no longer requires a HOT for you to be able to cast the spell (though due to interactions with the new mastery, HOTs on the target will make it heal for more). • Teleport Moonglade: Will eventually be replaced with Dreamwalking as you level in Legion (gives you access to a larger set of portals to various places). • Efflorescence: Wild Mushroom has been renamed Efflorescence – place a mushroom on the ground to heal targets standing nearby. • Lifebloom is no longer refreshed by direct heals. • Note that minor glyphs (largely impacting cosmetic appearances) are still available as either glyphs or tomes. You apply minor glyphs to the spells themselves, or learn shapeshift forms such as tree form, rather than using the old glyph system. Table of contents: 1. healing part 1: Description of spells 2.

43m 8.0 Guardian tank huge nerf? According to WoWhead: Current : Frenzied Regeneration: Heals you for 50% of all damage taken in the last 5 sec over 3 sec, minimum 5% of maximum health. 8.0:Frenzied Regeneration: Heals you for 25% of maximum health over 5 sec. 36 second cooldown. 2 charges. 10 rage.

1h Druid class flavor idea This just popped into my head. This isn't a game changer type thing. Just something small to do out in the world. You know how most beasts drop meat or eggs? What if druids could eat them raw (only while in cat or bear form so balance and resto can take part too) and gain a fun buff or debuff. It wouldn't work inside dungeons, raids, or instanced PVP. A buff could be something like making us grow larger in size for a short period of time. A debuff example would be increasing our aggro radius to beasts after eating meat because they can still smell the blood. What do you think?Ashaszun0 1h
1h Are Druids just bad now? So i played a druid back in Wrath and then i left for a long while, back in wrath i was mostly resto BUT i leveled through cata (for the short time i played it) to max level as feral and i never had any problems. But since starting legion i have just struggled to level my druid up and hitting 110, i quickly felt things go from difficult to nearly impossible. Trying to go through brokenshore, and get my basic questing done while grabbing a few dailies for the 850ish gear, i thought things would turn around. But moment i tried to dive into the weapon scenarios i found myself hitting a wall. Either i cant do enough damage, or i am so squishie i just die in seconds... So what the hell am i missing? Druid use to be one of my favorite classes and while i wouldn't call myself a druid expert by any stretch i never had issues with my druid, but now in Legion i feel like i cant even do basic questing with them... without either half dying or just getting steam rolled... Did blizz ruin the druid or is it me because honestly... i cant figure out how to make my druid fun, i keep trying and everytime i end up dropping them for another class as its such a frustrating experience...Kalisa7 1h
1h So resto druids, what will you reroll in BFA? Now that resto is being severely nerfed in surviveability, cooldowns, and healing (rejuv duration and good talents cosolidated into tiers) while at the same time disc is being buffed and the top dog hpal is largely untouched, are you going to reroll to another healer or keep at the resto druid? Druid has been poor in pvp for a while compared to rsham, is 2nd to hpal in m+, and 3rd (2nd tier) in raid. I can't decide if I will reroll hpal or just unsub.Torros7 1h
6h Tome of the Wilds: Stag Form I have a couple questions about this 1. Reading wowhead about the treeant tome they said it changes position on the stance bar so there for it messes up macros that refer to [stance 4] or something like that because the numbers are reordering when changing specs. Has that been fixed and if not does this tome suffer the same glitch. 2. Travel form cheetah glyph. If I learned this tome and then used the glyph on travel form to be a cheetah (which I like better but want to keep the utility of being a mount). Does it effect the time also ? Like can I hit travel form to be a cheetah and if I need to be a mount I hit the time spell to be a deer?Botany1 6h
8h Guardian Dual Weapons I did search and see there are some threads on this topic but wanted to start one as a specific request to Blizz to allow Guardian Druids to dual wield fist weapons in the future. Simply, if we were given an artifact weapons consisting of dual fist weapons then it seems as if it's natural that 'bears' be able to use 2 fist weapons as tanks...we've been doing it for almost 2 years now. So, if we could get some traction with this thread by just posting "yes" as a comment maybe this would happen. I just re-rolled a druid on what will be my new 'home' server and had completely forgotten that I could not equip my newly acquired Heirloom fist weapons. Please and Thank you, Blizz.Tupi4 8h
9h BFA Feral future So is feral in BFA just getting an exact copy from Legion? Other than bleeds scaling with haste? I am all for that but I hate how Elune's Guidance remains as a talent when its very uninteresting and useless in every situation. It does nothing flashy, the spell isn't flashy, I just don't get it. I've never understood why bad talents stay in place just to create the illusion of choice. In actuality even though I am very much so enjoying feral at the moment, "took a break from havoc because current Antorous Havoc is cancer" I believe there is absolutely nothing aesthetically pleasing about feral whatsoever. I read Incarnation and thought to myself "duuude a super improved feral cat form? So I'm going to take the appearance of Ashmane and start ripping people to shreds for a few moments???!?" Or something along that line.. nope... nothing... Lol I get a little baaaarely visible blood puddle underneath me on absolute max particale density and graphic detail. Very lackluster when it comes to the eye pleasing department. And honestly, why isn't Incarnation a final talent row and currently somewhere in the middle? I feel like the final "BIG" talents should be game changing, big playstyle changers. Not boring like "after casting regrowth your next 2 attacks deal 20% increased dmg" Lol, while that one I believe could/would be useful in a bleed centered build. But things like sabertooth that just flat increase bite dmg and always refresh rip... they are so BOOOORRRRRING. With BFA Void centering can't feral tap in to some sort of Void energy hunter prowler kind of stuff? I mean it would make sense beings there literally are void prowlers shifting in and out of phases and lashing their prey with void energies, tearing great wounds.. I mean come on.. lol where is the idea department because I feel devs could use some neat WOW factor, some SPIZAZZ! :DSeruvim40 9h
10h Where is the mythic plus chest in hall? I can see on my warlock where it is, but I just did 2 of them and I can't find it in the Druid hall?!Irunbru31 10h
12h Underwater Travel Form I feel like this form needs abilities. This is a very important form. Please add new abilities for pwning noobs underwater. Thank you.Earp7 12h
23h Druid Herbalism On the alpha and continuing onto the beta, druids have lost the ability to harvest herbs in any other form other than basic. You can’t farm in travel form. The sky golem still allows you to,harvest herbs while mounted however Undocumented stealth change or oversight? I haven’t been able to get any comment from blizzard. Just thought the Druid community would like a heads up.Xandrigity2 23h
1d 8.0 Displacer Beast Removed It is now replaced by Tiger Dash, Activates Cat Form and increases movement speed by 200%, reducing gradually over 4 seconds (45s CD). Designwise it overlaps with Dash and goes against your very own fake design philosophy. Functionalitywise it breaks the RestoD in PVP. In PVP this ability is part of the backbone of the RestoDruid, just like Cyclone. Without Displacer Beast in PVP you cannot shift out of Bear Form without near certain death. Funwise you removed the only fun thing about RestoD in PVE. Displacer beast was a fun ability for PVE players because let's face it, in PVE every button that does not tank, spank, or heal is just there for fun. Looks like somebody on your design team is still getting ganked by Druids and is not going to stop until there are none left playing the game.Leorox50 1d
1d Void Elf Druid for the love of god There are SO many people who want Void Elf druids and I don't understand why we can't make this happen. I know the lore surrounding the druids and their affinity with nature vs. the Void Elf's affinity with the void, but you could make it work with a slightly altered story line unique to the Void Elves giving them an altered path towards druidism. Void Druids would be AWESOME.Skatch34 1d
1d New Moon Replacing Astral Communion ... Slightly disappointing New Moon didn't just become baseline. As a result our Solar Wrath and Lunar Strike are going to have drastically lower astral power generation. I would of liked to have seen it placed in a different tier. Not to mention our level 100 talent tier is a complete joke.Legacys19 1d
1d Restro Druids, What are your key bindings? Hello all! I'm trying to optimize my keybindings to allow me to more easily heal my group. My keybind setup is focused on having all my major spells easily accessible on my right hand, while keeping my left hand free to use the mouse. My current setup is: WASD - Movement ` : wild growth 1 : Regrowth 2 : Rejuvination 3 : Lifebloom 4 : Healing Touch 5 : Swiftmend 6 : Renewal 7 : Solar Wrath 8 : Mass Entanglement 9 : Prowl 0 : Shadowmeld - : Dash = : Tranquility backspace : Essanse of G'Hanir Q : Nature's Cure E : Effloresence T : Rebirth G : Travel Form [ : Trinket 1 ] : Trinket 2 numpad 0 : Healthstone (warlock's) Looks a bit confusing wrote out, but it feels pretty natural once ya get the hang of it, since most of the 'use every pull' spells are easily reached with my right hand, without awkward hand movements. Please share yall's so might be able to make mine better! Thanks all!Melanaes7 1d
1d Druid race you play As the topic says, what druid race do you play (and why), is it lore? The forms? Min Max? I prefer Night Elf for mine simply because I liked the lore and also WC3 Druids.Barkfeather45 1d
1d Why bring a feral? Let me preface this by saying that I do not think we are doomed by any means. Everything I am going to discuss,while there may be some PVP applications, is strictly from a PVE perspective. I, like many others, have been debating on what to main for BFA. I have been contemplating Windwalker Monk, Havoc Demon Hunter, and Feral Druid. One of my deciding factors is "what would I be bringing to the table?". When looking at WW, I see that they now have a 5% physical damage taken debuff. Similarly, Havoc DH has a 5% magic damage taken debuff. Without having to change talents significantly, these two classes have good to superb aoe/cleave and single target damage. As a raid leader I could justify bringing a demon hunter for their sustain through leach and ability to soak with netherwalk. Windwalker is losing traits that allow ToK to heal and teleport no longer provides any healing. If all damage is equal, demon hunter would appear to be the stronger melee dps. Now, my issue. Where does feral fit in? If battle res were a premium utility, that alone could be a reason to bring one. However, if we look at how accessible this is going to become, I feel like this utility is not so unique anymore. The following classes can battle res. -Hunter (Spec/Pet dependant?) -Druid -Death Knight -Warlock -Isn't there rumor of a new item being introduced to allow anyone to battle res? Gift of the wild is our other class unique buff. However, given the popularity of druids there is a low probability that this will not already be provided by another druid. Now, the same could be said of the new 5% debuffs. Is it likely there will be more than one monk or dh in a raid? Yes, I'd say it's quite possible. However, I would be willing to say there is an extremely high likelihood of a raid having at least two druids. Druids have four specializations, therefore, the representation has been and will be very high. The last thing that I can think of that could be potentially useful is stampeding roar. Could this be the thing we are brought for? At one point we offered 5% crit and every 6 seconds someone gaining our aura would heal themselves for 2% (iirc) of their max hp on crit. This may be deemed too powerful, I don't claim to know the answer to that. A buff such as this made me feel really cool as a feral. I'm well passed TLDR for most readers at this point. If you read this all, thank you! Does anyone else have concerns such as this? I'd love to main feral but might end up choosing something else because I will most likely pug a lot more in BFA and I want to be desirable. I feel like this issue is not exclusive to druid. Please do not take me the wrong way. My concern is simply that some specs may be overlooked because they don't do anything unique and beneficial for the raid. I don't want to have specs looked at as either you have buff/debuff "X or Y" or you don't. Those that don't tend to be heaped into a pile of yeah lets just fill up now since we have our 5% debuffs. Doesn't everyone want to feel not just viable, but maybe even sought after? Warlocks must have some semblance of this feeling due to summons and cookies/gateway.Cambrady15 1d
1d Fluid Druid Did the fluid druid site get moved? I am just coming back and really enjoyed those forums quite a bit.Bushbrow10 1d
1d BFA Balance Druid So have they decided or told how the damage and playstyle/mechanics will work? Will it be the same with the artifact moon spells and empowered solar wrath/lunar strike, or are they gonna remove the moon spells and buff sw, ls and ss? Or do they perhaps might have a whole different mechanic/playstyle they're adding to druids in BFA?Garrakdek29 1d
2d Will Druids ever get vanish Do you think Druids (even just Feral) will ever get an in-combat restealth ability that's not both a) a talent b) our 3min DPS CD I have 2 rogues and I don't want Druids to become rogues, but an in-combat restealth just seems like something a sneaky cat should be able to do.Breanni18 2d
2d Falling out of stealth I'm not sure if this is a bug or some internal....thing...that is happening but during pvp, while playing feral, I will randomly fall out of stealth. I've taken no damage, hit no abilities, just boom...out of stealth. For a while I attributed it to some fat fingered error that I did, but it keeps happening consistently. Upon talking to other druids I play with, some...well most...much better than me, they have had it happen to them as well. Is this happening to any of you?Stroganof3 2d
2d Shapeshiftlore question Hello.I just completed my Lunarwing owl form quest.After completing it.I have a question.How exactly do druids shapeshift.I thought it was inate ability to them.But acccording to the quest the flightform is tied to the shrine of avania and when that was destroyed. The druids could no longer access that form.So does that mean all forms are tied to shrines or do the forms just come naturally as long as you master druidism?Thanks in advance for clearing this up for meVensdom2 2d
2d im having a hard time as feral leveling up im dying... a lot. my damage seems very low compared to the other classes ive leveled, which is almost all of them. are ferals just trash in legion? i really had an easier time leveling my allied druid as resto with the feral affinity talent chosen.Fuze4 2d
2d BFA balance druids Has anyone and I mean anyone do any testing on balance druids in the Alpha. Are they good, bad, or don't even bother playing one, with the removal of moon moon and the expansion announced for august 14th (which I think is way to early) I'm concerned for the class.Leafmealone30 2d
2d Photosynthesis? Thoughts on this? New 100 Resto talent on Alpha in place of Omen of Clarity: While your Lifebloom is on yourself, your Rejuvenations heal 20% faster. While your Lifebloom is on an ally, your periodic heals on them have a 5% chance to cause it to bloom. Useful for tank healing and maybe for keeping yourself alive in pvp? Think I would still prefer Germination or Flourish, generally.Slipnfall8 2d
2d Difficulty picking an alt. ((First off as a disclosure, I'm sorry if this post upsets anyone or annoys anyone. I understand that picking a class should be a solo-able activity but I'm having quit a bit of difficulty picking from those I've narrowed it down to, and Druid is one of those. Any advice or wisdom concerning the Druid class would be greatly appreciated ! :) )) TL;DR I can't decide between a Druid, Warrior or Hunter. The rest below is simply more detailed and if you're struggling to choose a class as well it may assist you. Hi. So I recently came back to WoW after a very long break, and I'm having problems picking an alt. My main is a rogue (specifically sub) and I love the fluidity it brings to the table as well as the extra utility. I've narrowed the classes I'm considering to three at this point, which are Warrior, Druid and Hunter. Below is just a general synopsis I've gathered of each of the classes. It goes from least amount of interest to most. Demon Hunter- I tried it, just didn't like the feel and having only 2 specs felt like I was getting ripped off. Priest- I really don't like healing, the mix of pressure, not hitting things and the cloth armor tear it all apart for me. Shadow looks cool, but I don't want to limit myself to one spec Mage- It feels great, but I REALLY don't like cloth. I love the feel of getting awesome gear, or a cool weapon and I feel like mage misses out on this rush Shaman- Eh, I don't like the alliance races very much and it just doesn't vibe with me well. They do have awesome looking transmogs and weapons though, mail ftw! Death Knight- Unholy is fun for me, I like the whole necro feel but the eyes and the general feel throw me off a bit. Also the lack of mobility bugs me quite a lot. Monk- I tried a class trial, I have no experience with this class to be honest. It looks fun, fluid and I'm probably missing out, I'm just not much of a martial arts person. Paladin- They have a flail now... I tanked as prot back at the start of WoD really felt good, but then Legion reworked them quite a bit. I really don't like ret and holy just isn't my thing. Warlock- New demonology looks really interesting in BFA, and I was super stoked to see soulfire return to destruction, despite this being a cloth wearer it was a hard contender to remove from my list. _____ Hunter- I really love how the bows look, so many transmog options, it looks really good. Funnily enough I've never played this class past level 70 and that was back in Cataclysm. Because I main rogue I think some ranged variation would give me some flavor, on top of that I've played rangers in quite a few other games and I've found it enjoyable. My biggest concern is everyone says how terrible they feel and how watered down they are, the class trial didn't feel that bad to me and the biggest concern I have with this class is that I may burn out due to lack of variation. If this is my alt I'll have a rogue with 3 melee dps specs and a hunter with 2 ranged dps specs and 1 melee dps spec. Warrior- The biggest thing that attracts me to warrior is the weapons, I love "The Black Hand" weapon from Blackrock which is reference to Diablo 3's "The Furnace". I think that the uniqueness that comes from the weapons really makes Warrior stand out to me, + they have a flail now! I've played this class at max in cata and I did enjoy it, but it always felt like something was missing. It felt very bland after I'd play on it for a patch or two and I'd end up alting something drastically different like a rogue, or a warlock. I do think that the BFA mechanic of stacking your mortal strike damage is awesome and I think that brings some unique flavor to warrior, I also love that if I want to I have the ability to tank! My biggest two concerns for warrior are it's lack of utility and the fact that paired with my rogue I'd be locked in to two Melee only classes. Druid- So I played a druid at my friends multiple times back in Cata, It didn't really do anything for me. I can't remember why I didn't specifically enjoy it but I think when I looked at my rogue and then this druid I felt the difference was laughable (it was an under-geared feral) I didn't get to try it's other specs but I remember after playing it briefly I had no intentions to do so again... Until recently. So, I saw that guardian and feral specs were separated which I love. On top of that they get awesome appearances from their artifact weapon that sort of compensates the fact that they don't get those awesome warrior weapons. (owlkitty) On top of that leather isn't anywhere near my favorite type of armor but it's workable and I love the fact that I can be a ranged dps. a melee dps with combo points and try out tanking; I even find it nice that there's a healing spec just in case I want to try something new. Overall the uniqueness of the different specializations and the ability to make a complete play-style change without logging out makes this feel like a smarter pick as an alternate character. My biggest concern with Druid is that feral may just make me want to play my rogue and also leather would be the only armor I stare at when I play.Itslippy10 2d

2d RBG Build Hey y'all, looking for suggestions on 2k+ rbg build for this resto alt. I see some people playing abundance + flourish + nourish but I didn't really care for it like I used to and found I wasn't doing much healing on the charts (im more of a CC / objective player anyways) and I was so busy focusing on trying to rejuv everything for instant healing touches than I was actually playing objectively. Which build is the way to go for rbgs? Talents + Honor talents please Edit: looking for advice from 2k+ players in rbgMøchå1 2d
2d Moose Antlers on the Highmountain Moonkin? Please Blizzard ive us our own model for Moonkin. At least some antlers instead of cow horns. I like all the new models and i like that there making each new race feel unique. But it kills me that my horns look like a normal tauren.... at least give us the troll/NE model of moonkin so we have some kind of antlers.Korvar1 2d
2d Druid Animal Form Systems Anyone know exactly how Blizz will be handling the animal form mogs in BfA? Will it be just a mog option from basic menu (drop down box for "forms" like daggers, swords, etc.)? Or perhaps talk to some NPC and choose form or even some hashed together glyph deal? Hopefully it will be the first option. Not that theres any time pre-expansion to create this and it probably has been brought up 100 times before, but sure would like to vary our forms within the factions. Be a tauren druid with a troll feral cat. Especially with Zan and Highmountain druids, would love to see some questline or just flat out purchase of other forms to add to a druids collection much like weapons. I'm way too attached to my tauren to racechange it, but those zanda forms look KEWL. Really, since we dont see our weapons, our forms are our only distinguishing aesthetic. Would like to see lots of new variations to add spice and variety instead of just 3 different color pallets.Grayhorn6 2d
2d Feral Druid alpha Hey guys anyone play a max level feral on alpha? If so is their survivability better than on live?Lothenar8 2d
2d Legion Druid Forms in Battle for Azeroth Anyone know if we will be able to keep our Druid forms in the expansion. They are doing away with artifact weapons in the new expansion I think and many of our new druid forms are wrapped around the artifacts. Just wonderingAmateurhøur19 2d
2d Guardian Artifact Weapon Appearance Transmog Have we ever gotten official word that we will be able to transmog our forms? I don't mean transmog weapons to access forms, but the forms themselves. Unless we get the ability to transmog our forms directly, every Guardian Druid can kiss their appearances goodbye because I don't remember ever seeing a Guardian Druid using fist weapons before Legion. To make matters worse, fist weapons are their own weapon class, successfully gating them away from ever being practically used. I know that before Legion I only ever used a 2H Mace, but maybe that was just me. Can we get some info on this? I'd hate to go through the trouble of beating the Mage Tower just to never get to use my Grizzlemaw appearance in actual combat (who am I kidding, I'll get it anyway because it's awesome). I mean, I know Blizzard does whatever they want, like removing the Saberon appearance completely and not even turning it into a glyph. I hope that they have something more accessible planned than "you can only ever use fist weapons ever again if you want to use your special forms".Ursarex15 2d
3d How Alts Get Druid Class Mount Druid ALTS Class mount.... Ok, after earning this class mount on my druid I was frustrated trying to figure out why my alt druid lvl 100, could not use or see the class mount in the mount journal. I have the class mount on my hunter and my lowbie hunter can use it just by going to the mount journal and selecting it, so figured the same would be for my alt druids. Per blue post, the druid class mount was removed temporarily from the mount journal while correcting some issues. For those that are lvl 100 and have received the Dreamgrove teleport which replaced your Moonglade teleport, just go to dreamgrove and go outside where all the portals are and take the portal to moonglade. Once in Moonglade, go to where Loganar the druid trainer is standing , then look up on the roof of the building behind him for Starcaller Faeb. She is up on the roof, because you have to know how to fly in order to use this mount. Once you enable the class mount with her, it will replace your flight form. I hope blizzard corrects this, because this is not a "mount" it is a flight form. Some of us paid a lot for the glyph of the Sentinel & may still want to use it. You can return here and enable/disable this flight form appearance at will. Also worth noting that the druid class form, can carry a passenger. Blizzard is aware of the issue here, and claims to be working on it. ~per blue post. Hope this helps those of you Alt birding! Happy Questing.Elfinzat10 3d
3d Fix Ferocious Bite I don't understand why nobody cares or complains or why anybody thinks it's good to have this ability SO RNG focused. This one ability has TWO levels of RNG you need to overcome in order to DPS ON PAR with others, not outdps them, just to match them. The first: This ability SHOULD be - it will do 100% more damage WHEN YOU USE 100% MORE ENERGY. It should NOT BE 'UP TO'. So you can use 50 energy and not get the full 100% bonus. The second: It doesn't always use 50 energy even if you have it. It should ALWAYS use the maximum amount of energy possible. I should NEVER have 100 energy and ferocious bite uses 25. That should NEVER happen. But it does. Often. This is why Ferals feel so weak. This is why they feel so inconsistent, because consistency is not a possibility. This is why it feels like they need to work 2x as hard to be AS good as others. This ability is bunk. And if you find ferals outdps everyone when this change happens just lower the damage but keep the consistency.Khuldo8 3d
3d Balance Druid Challenge When the hand from beyond spawns I don't see them anywhere. I usually hover over the magic twin but I don't see them anywhere. I looked at videos and they are obviously giant hands. Sometimes the melee guy is half under the floor too, does anyone know what to do about this? I've tried /target [exists] Hand from Beyond but it didn't work.Inanis4 3d
3d Miffed about the mage tower I completed all the Druid mage tower challenges a couple months ago and the Guardian challenge was really hard for me. I put in over 50 attempts before beating it. This past weekend I leveled up a DK and did Kruul... in two attempts. It wasn't even hard. I only failed the first time because I forgot about twisted reflection, and even then I didn't die, Velen did. It just seems unfair. I heard DH is even easier.Breanni5 3d
4d All Druid raid tonight 8:30 est Hi druids! Looking for some druids to join in on our all druid raid tonight at 8:30 est. Currently need all specs for tonight. We will be doing progression on heroic Varimathras and Coven. Add me on btag to chat - Badkitty#11222Badkittycat0 4d
4d OoC Proc Addon Not sure if this has been touched on before, but is there an add on to help us watch when Omen of Clarity procs? Since basically we only cast our mana intensive heals on OoC, I keep having to stop what I'm doing and look for the small little buff that Blizz gives us. Thanks guys! :)Agoron18 4d
4d Dance Animation So what's the deal with the dance animation for the Mage Tower Challenge appearance? Why my Harambear don't dance? Did someone forget? Were they too lazy? Did they not care? Just curious.Poohpei7 4d
4d Epic Druid Names Give me some epic druid names.Bloodrain66 4d
5d Can We Solo Ra-Den? As the title says. I'm trying to take care of old, unfinished business in Pandaria, now that I outgear the place. However, I can't figure out how to survive Ra-Den's Fatal Strike... I've tried using the active mitigation talents I know of as a bear, and none work. Any advice or experience on how to do this? Is it even possible as a bear? Thanks.Taleranor36 5d
5d Where are the bear hulk animations? So I got my bear hulk today, yayyy me, and I don't know about anyone else, but these animations are so bad. The only one remotely cool is the maul animation and tbh that looks more like a happy accident than anything. Wanna swipe? left hook. Wanna thrash? Left hook again. Wanna mangle? Oh !@#$ here comes the right hook. Cast moonfire? Back to left hook, but this time with a glowey paw, oooooo The Rage of the sleeper wasn't even changed to be on the back of the new bear, it just sorta cuts through our mid section creating a fiery diaper. The orb from ironfur flies through our pelvis like a %^-*! caught in orbit and some skills(typhoon) don't even have animations at all. After countless hours of grinding this skin, I have to say I kind of feel cheated. I know all new animations take a huge amount of time to create, but at the same time that's exactly what we were promised and just having two, incredibly bland animations for a whole spec just feels wrong.Ashclaw9 5d
5d Feral Hidden Skin - Help! Hi everyone! Since i got my feral to 110 and my AK>4 (now at 55) i was trying to get my feral hidden skin... with no success. I never heard any screech, nor read any emote saying something. And its been a while, almost a month (entering once a day to the dreamgrove just to check). Am I doing something wrong? Do i have really bad luck with the RNG?Aiwendill3 5d
5d Dreamwalk? By far my favorite change and addition to the druid class has been Dreamwalk. Now I feel even more like Azeroth's immune system by having an access point to almost every major continent and location on the world. Are there plans to expand on this with the next expansion and add another access point to the future isles of BFA?Seitheach2 5d
5d Question about quirk in balance opener I understand what you're supposed to do for the typical opener: prepot, x2 wrath, new moon, dots, CD, half, full, SS etc. ...but sometimes you'll be starting a fight with either half moon or full moon. Is there anything that you're supposed to switch up for this scenario? Do you just straight up skip using a moon?Boxworld5 5d
