Aug 20 Moonfarespam: The Moonkin Guide (7.2.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.

Jun 15 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 15 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.

1h Still no Ashenvale portal? I couldn't find a topic on this that wasn't a year or more old, so I wanted to ask... am I missing something or did we really not get an Ashenvale portal in the Dreamgrove? With the class campaign supposedly over, we still don't have it? Anyone know what's up?Thallia18 1h
1h Alternate cat skins? I'm clearly not an avid druid player, I've been seeing people with different cat skins than the normal ones and I'm wondering how I could get them as I want to make a druid myself.Valériana7 1h
1h Single Target Incarn + Brutal Slash Is it worth using Brutal Slash during Incarnation or should I just Shred spam? I'm currently blowing all of my BS charges before my "true" Incarnation opener, but I'm not sure if this is the optimal rotation.Rhahen6 1h
1h Highlord Kruul So, I'm trying this thing out I got 1.7k nethershards let so 17 chances, uh, I'm having tons of trouble most of it because I forget mechanics and get kicked off, but most of it is in phase 2 where the boss will have killed me with more hp than he started off with, I'm 920 ilvl and dont know what I should be doing, I've gotten luffa's wrapping and some ring, which the wrapping alone def help with P1, but in P2 Kruul will jump and chunk me out of nowhere with no cast to show whats about to happen and when he does do it, he's generally right on top of me where I can't even guess on what do do. any tips?Garisian4 1h
2h Pvp feral help Hey guys! so a little about me ive played the game since LK and mained a feral from the start. played feral til WoD where i hated blood talons and savage roar. fast forward a bit to legion 7.3 when the talents all changed and i can play without using those now! thinking about picking feral back up again but its far diff than what im used too. i feel ultra squish in pvp even though i see alot of people say feral is broken what am i doing wrong? i go bear when im getting focused but still feel weak. i also take guardian affinity in pvp as well. my heals feel like trash as well. any help is appreciated!Greénlee6 2h
3h How bad is haste for Feral? Reason I ask is because of the amount of haste gear I get on my feral... I could be 10 ilvls highr equiped if I was wearing all the high ilvl gear I get with more than 2k haste each... I can't take this anymore...Birubiru5 3h
3h The Fangs of Ashamane Quest issue I have opened the door cleared the room and there is a gate and a door, neither of which I can open. I watched some video's there is a pedestal in one from beta but its not in here. Is anyone else stuck ? Thanks in advance.Cavalierish7 3h
3h Best trinkets for guardian druids I was wondering if the new alchemy stone is worth it for guardian Druids? It has versatility and the agil boost. Any thoughts?Doomchuckle0 3h
5h Snapshotting/pandemic window for rip Ok suppose that my opening sequence was Rake -> moonfire -> shred until 5 CP's -> ferocious bite-> shred/ moonfire refresh until 4 CP's -> cast regeowrg using the predatory swiftness proc/gain two charges of blood talons -> cast tigers fury -> rake to 5 CB's -> Rip Now also suppose my talent selection is bloodtalons and sabertooth Would the rip that I applied at my opening sequence, given that it never fell off and was always refreshed by an application of ferocious bite continuously be under the "snapshot" of the bloodtalons+tigers fury boost or would either part fall off after the first full rip duration had been reached? If it does, then I believe the sabertooth/bloodtalons build is not only really powerful but also going to pull ahead of any other build for ST. Suppose you take savage roar and BT or savage roar and moment, these builds would be inferior because not only are you using combo points for a 15% non snapshot buff, but you're also not getting that damage from the ferocious bite. With these assumptions and perfect/optimal use of predatory swiftness (using ST and bloodtalons) you'll always be getting a 100% uptime on a 35% increased damage on rip and playing around with behemoth headress, you might get a near 85% uptime on a 35% increased damage rake (assuming BT and TF buffs upon application) and a near 100% uptime on at least a 20% increased damage rake (BT proc alone which is easy to hold onto long enough to reapply rake when needed) I ask this question because I am not 100% sure about how the Sabertooth talent impacts this snapshotted rip and want to verify with fellow theory craftersAldehyde3 5h

7h Most fun/engaging druid spec? So, I love the lore and aesthetics of druid and as such I want to make one. I just don't know what spec to play.Koadhiro7 7h
11h a small tip for flight form out of buildings I know we all hate that long delay of not being able to activate flight form when recently exiting a building or cave of some sort. I have gotten into the habit of tapping my S key when walking out and it helps with being able to instantly activate flight form. I think the game will immediately recognize you are outside doing this so you can flight form right away. The coding must be borked on this i dont remember this delay a few expansions ago but its really annoying. Hope this helps!Frankspencer0 11h
12h New druid flight form is so dissapointing... Just putting out my opinion on this, I am keeping my crow form as the owl face is the weirdest and positively stupidest thing i have ever seen Blizzard create...Mooganhearst17 12h
15h Unable to empower other artifacts? How do we empower our other Druid Artifact weapons? I don't remember getting an option to choose which Artifact weapon I got to empower. I was in Balance spec, loot was set to Balance and following the quest lines gave me the Feral Empowerment quest. I did that quest since I couldn't see any other way to start the other ones. Now that I have completed that quest line and gotten the empowerment for my Feral Artifact weapon I cannot find a way to start the quests for the other Artifact weapons. This is a problem because I am a Balance Druid, not Feral. Anyone else had the same issue or found out how to get the empowerment quests for the other Artifact weapons?Slimrage14 15h
16h Kruul advice Greetings, I have tried the mage tower challenge for the first time today, having watched several videos and read quite a few guides. I am aware that my gear and legendary combination is more than enough to beat him, but I still struggle in some annoying mechanics. After 88 tries, I managed to reach phase 2 in a solid number, though inferior to what I would have liked. In sum, I have detected three leading causes for my failures: dying to smash knockback, Velen getting wrecked by adds in both phase 1 and 2, and chaos during Kruul landing (dealing with green puddles, annihilate and nether adds aoe, which might be on Velen). My questions are two: Is it worth having Velen on melee range to strike Variss and speed things along? On one hand, it is nice to have a shorter phase 1, but whenever the adds gang up on the Prophet, I have to enter the boss' DnD aura to pick them up, and often take the infernal damage. How to deal with the beginning of phase 2? Far too often the nether adds are alive, and Kruul jumping on me with the green crap makes for desperate times. Not to count when they spawn right after I am on Kruul, but move for Velen instead. Since Kruul is huge, it can be hard to spot that and act accordingly. The same goes for finding Holy Orbs amongst the chaos.Nairenar9 16h
16h Artifact with Old skins? Heyyy fellow dr00ds. Quick question: Is there a way to keep my Artifact weapon equipped but still have the old Feral Cat Form skins?Greenshroom3 16h
16h resto okay in bg's? currently lvling a new resto main and doing some bg's at low levels but the hots are ridiculously healing for low. i don't expect it to be amazing at these levels due to lack of spells and balancing issues at low level but at end game are they okay? by okay i mean they are not healing for what feels like 1hp per tick and constantly spamming regrowth only to have that person die. feels like a joke that people won't even train me because they know my heals suck and they can just burst through it.Astura4 16h
17h Your Class Fantasy I would just like to ask the community how you feel blizzard did creating and enforcing the class fantasy of your preferred specialization. If you don't have experience with one of the specs feel free to only comment based on the one(s) you are experienced with. Do you feel they lived up to what the class fantasy has been represented as and do you feel the gameplay of the class is able to keep you involved and further increase the feeling that you are the spec you chose? What did they do good? What did they do alright with? What did they do bad/ leave out? Please list which specialization(s) you are speaking on. Thank You in advance for your responses. :)Curtens4 17h
18h Guardian Mage Tower So last night I killed Kruul on my Paladin and got that out of the way. Took a few test swings with my Druid and I can't even get to Kruul. The Inquisitor phase is kicking my butt. I must be doing something very wrong and maybe obvious to some of you. Trying to tank it like a Paladin some of you might think but I am keeping my stacks low and 4 or under. I am interrupting Drain Life. I have all the recommended talents. So I pull with Moonfire, step back to let Inquisitor stack with Velen. Do the dance. Should I be able to maintain Iron Fur 100%? When I am doing damage as well it feels kind of low compared to what I believe I am able to do. I use Potion of Prolonged Power or Potion of the Old War. I have been trying both but I believe Prolonged Power in the end provides the Druid more overall damage. I could be very wrong. Now if you inspect me I have the chest and bracers for legendary items. I think I have all the right enchants. So minus the few times smash has punted me off the side I seem to be dying to damage. Just too much incoming damage. Is there anything anyone can suggest to help mitigate it during the Inquisitor? This fight is supposed to be easier then the Prot Paladin and I just can't seem to slip into the groove that would have me believe that. I must be doing something very very WRONG!Refixed7 18h

20h So, about Rip and Tear... Has anybody played around with this PvP talent since the 7.3 update? Last time I checked I was told that this ability tended to bug out and not work reliably. I'd be interested in hearing about players that have used Rip and Tear and made it work for them. That aside, it seems to me like its a deeply flawed ability that is acting as a placeholder until they come up with something better. In any case, the talent Elune's Grace does a better job at achieving the same effect. So, rather than having a dead talent I would rather have them replace it with something that is worthwhile and competitive with the other talents on that tier. A couple of ideas that come to mind: - Thrash stuns enemies when used from stealth. - Ferocious Bite applies a debuff that decreases healing received for 2 seconds per combo point spent. - Your attacks do additional nature damage to targets afflicted by your Infected Wounds. - When you activate Berserk or Incarnation, all enemies within a 10 yard radius will cower in fear for 3 seconds. Your thoughts on this? Like I said, at the very least I would like to ensure that the current PvP talent, Rip and Tear, works properly so we can either provide feedback to fix its shortcomings or if ultimately deemed unsuitable, suggest alternatives to take its place.Khatos3 20h
20h Are Resto Druids Being Sat? An ongoing debate in my circle of friends is whether Resto Druids are currently viable in this tier (ToS) as we have one among us that struggles to pull "good hps" in our heroic raids even while 3 healing 15-20 folks with myself (MW) and a Holy Priest. I put "good hps" in the special quotes as I know healing is largely dependent on the amount of damage taken by the group as well as the amount of healers keeping the group up. I predominantly play with this group of friends and rarely pug anything nor do I really keep up with what mythic guilds are doing nowadays (not to mention resto druids in general). So without further blabbery, is the hot healer struggling in this tier?Clashe8 20h
21h Mage Tower Healer Challenge If someone from Blizzard could please explain how the "Healer" challenge is a legitimate gauge of ones healing ability? I'm a 930 Resto Druid and I have no issues up until Phase 5. The spirits can't be healed until they've been moving toward Erdris for a few seconds. Even using every cooldown I have and trying multiple combinations of gear/talents, this particular phase just seems cruel and designed to cause a player to go OOM. It puts you into a situation in which you will never find yourself in normal play. Also if any fellow Restos have some tips they would be appreciated, just know I've read multiple guides, watched multiple videos, and read multiple forum posts. This whole "challenge" just seems like someone pitched the idea, "How can we make every healer hate life as much as possible?" I've tried to remain calm when doing the challenge but really just feels like it's designed to be a test of your will to live.Flüttershy10 21h
22h Mage tower bug (guardian)? Last night I stated trying the mage tower, slowly getting it. But I seem to be running into a bug today? Last night if I incapacitated the horrors or the orb blind I could do damage to them iirc, but today when I do they wont take any damage from swipe or thrash. Is that normal and I just didn't see it last night or is it bugging out on me constantly now?Haxir18 22h
1d tips for shape shifting? not new to druid but since i mained one back in MoP all i have been doing is clicking my forms to swap. currently got into PvP as well and trying to learn more but all the keybinds i am comfortable with are in use. anyone have tips for keybinding for fast swaps? literally all my keys are bound to something that might serve use for pvp purposes. my reaction is pretty slow when it comes to clicking them as well the GCD helps but not by much in pvp.Astura7 1d
1d 3s RDruid help Anyone know a good guide or got some tips to playing RDruid in 3s? I was searching for my favorite healer out of mw/disc/rdruid I love rdruid the most but to put it simple I am !@#$ing garbage at it. I know I will get better with practice, but I want some sort of short cut haha, Healing in pvp is just so much more exciting than dps, but its so difficult. I went 10/28 so far. Its frustrating losing so many games as to when I was dps I can do way better. Edit: my ratio is actually 12/29Tuchanka1 1d

1d Second Artifact Weapon issue.... Ok this is gonna be long, So I started legion when it first came out and I did feral DPS as my spec. I got my fangs of ashmane and then i went awol for about a year and a half 2 -3 patches came out. So now i want to start playing around with different specs with this druid. I cannot get access to my second artifact weapon. There is no quest. My order hall is completed and I am maxed on my fangs. Now in the adventure guide it says that I need to switch to the spec I want and then the quest should happen. It does not. Rensar Greathoof is supposed to be the quest giver and he only says his generated crud. HELP.Kiravend0 1d
1d trying to kill agatha I'm a terrible player with guardian and I'm a feral main, I did the questline for the guardian challenge skin and i simply cannot do anything to the inquisitor or even get past the first phase. so i tried to skip it by doing the feral questline next and i did the questline, i killed agatha in her weak form as a succubus, i turned it in and then i received the gift from the council. i went to the deliverance point and i still have to do the guardian one first. am i forced to kill kruul first or can i skip him and do agatha? if i have to do him first i will end my lifeItslitmang4 1d

2d Druid Offspecs Hi all, thanks to a free level 100 boost from buying legion I now have a level 100 druid. Given the versatility of the class, how do you guys handle off specs? Do most druids have one or two or even three?Nixtran1 2d
2d Balance Druid Stat Priority I have seen three different priorities from three different sites. What is the correct answer on this?Nixtran2 2d
2d Reasons to play as a Druid I have recently transfered server+faction as a priest (this is whyI can't post here with him this week), and I could only afford to do that with one toon. Thus, I have the current need of having at least one more lvl110 toon for me to have some diversity in this game. As I had leveled a bunch of them in the last year (I kept having that feeling that X class would be better than my current one), I have decided to level up a Druid this time, and stick with it, since it is one of the classes I have least played recently. I have always envied how, across expansions, Druids are always remembered fondly by Blizzard, who keep on using them in lore, and also giving them nice things. They have always at least two really good specs, while some other classes might end up being forgotten by developers. When healing with my main priest, I always see those resto druids on my raid apparently having a good time, nice HPS output, and without starving for mana all the time. They have nice AoE healing too. I also notice those Balance druids being loved, always in demand for taking care of priority targets, and yet capable of doing decent damage overall. Ferals are also admired, since they are seen as having a complicated spec but with high rewards when played correctly. They seem also to have fun with all the skin options their artifact is giving them. Guardians are viewed as God tanks, but since I'm not a tank player, this is a neutral zone to me. However, checking out this forum, I can see SEVERAL reasons why I shouldn't give having a druid another chance, like: 1. They got a new glyph for flight form, not a mount, on 7.2; 2. Resto healing is the most boring thing; 3. Resto struggles with M+ and random BGs for their lack of decent instant healing (3.a. Pretty sure I had read on an icy veins guide that Healing Touch shouldn't be casted at all); 4. Balance is terrible at surviving high end PvE solo content; 5. So is Feral; 6. Rogues can avoid fall damage thanks to their Cat-like reflexes, but if a Feral jumps down 70 yards, be ready for having that nice whispwalk all the way from the graveyard These are the arguments I remember, and I agree to some of them as I have already experienced druid gameplay at 110. What I want to kindly ask you, brave Druid players, is for you to tell me the reasons why you love your class. I really want to enjoy playing a Druid, as it is one of the only classes I haven't really given a chance to, and the ones I have ended up disappointing me. But some of the cons I listed are too big for me (like the healing being boring or Balance struggling to survive in Argus while watching warlocks and DKs go over them and pick those treasure chests first). Are you doing it for the instant flying form? For aesthetic reasons (you like shapeshifting/astral form/the artifact appearances)? Out of loyalty, since you have played Druids since Vanilla or something like that? Is that enough?Spellman17 2d
2d Guardian stats haste/versatility I dont know if this has been discussed or not. But im currently clearing m5 pretty easy. Im currently building my gear mastery/haste with a little bit of versatility (7%). Should i be getting more vers for higher mythics or keep my haste for the cool down reduction on frenzy regen and other skills?Bubbs22 2d
2d Guardian druid bad at killing explosives? I find that I have a hard time killing explosive orbs. Mangle has a fairly long CD and Maul costs rage that can be used on ironfur. Moonfire is too weak outside of procs.Unlivable5 2d
2d Nerf Moment of Clarity Why are they making all the entry level, basic, passive, feral abilities the strongest in the game? I'm looking at the top mythic parses, and a moment of clarity feral did 1.6 million DPS on Goroth. In pvp, all the alt feral are topping dps meters as Moment of clarity spec. They are making our class a 3 button shred spam class! Our bleeds now last twice as long, and get auto-refreshed just spamming shred and bite! :(Talason30 2d
2d Seal / Killer Whale request Hello, I would really love it if our water form had fast travel like our land based fast travel. Also, can we be a little bit bigger and allow people to ride us? Thank you!Suul6 2d
2d Soul of Archdruid vs Chatoyant - feral DPS? I am feral DPS. I never raid, and I never do PvP. 90% of my game-time is spent doing WQ, story quests and Mythic/Mythic+ dungeons. I had been using Chatoyant for the past few months. The SOTA fell into my lap last week. With the above info and looking at my gear, which ring should I wear and why? The Soul of the Archdruid or the Chatoyant Signet? For the sake of discussion, let's assume I can only wear one or the other. Please no replies stating I should wear both. I am trying to get to the bottom of which one is better for my toon. http://www.wowhead.com/item=151636/soul-of-the-archdruid http://www.wowhead.com/item=137040/chatoyant-signetSwampclaw26 2d
2d Why is the resto challenge staff... Not for moonkin! Seriously that thing is beautiful! Carved wooden owl with a glowing moon on top. Perfect for moonkin. The scythe is cool and all but that staff is so damn cool.Antarris1 2d
2d PTR restoration tier 19 4p nerf I posted this on the PTR forum too, but: Does this nerf need to happen right away? Could it not wait until Antorus or a little bit after? With the exception of mistweavers being a bit weak right now, healer balance is not in an awful place and I'd rather not take a nerf while still working through ToS instead of just letting it be more straightforward at the tier 21 release as a cutoff point. I know this patch is labeled as changes to prepare for Antorus, but I'd rather not lose ability to perform currently in ToS because of it. As at least as far as I am aware, this is an actual nerf and not a tooltip fix.Shaso2 2d
2d Help me choose an Alt. Im leaning towards feral because of the options to go boomkin and resto, (both fun). But I'm stuck with this question. As far as pvp effectiveness, what does a feral bring that a rogue doesn't? Other then shifting out of roots, which was nerfed and also I believe sub rogue can shadow step out of roots? I could be wrong. But is rogue stronger then feral in pvp? And if not what can a feral do that a rogue cannot in pvp? Also I think rogue is equally fun.Xaroe5 2d
2d rdruid or rshaman currently? looking to main one but i can't decide which. i used to main rdruid it was fine back then. currently im looking to heavily get into progression content like high mythic+ keys, mythic raiding, rated pvp. which would you suggest to for these types of content to push? also i am wondering which of these 2 classes has the better AoE heal potential?Astura1 2d
