1d 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.

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.

Dec 31 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). Table of contents (v 6.0) Level 1 to 10 (all specializations) & how to choose your specialization. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20747334536#2 Feral (cat) Leveling. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20747334536#3 Balance (moonkin) Leveling. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20747334536#4 Restoration (healing) leveling. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20747334536#5 Guardian (bear tank) leveling. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20747334536#6 General FAQ.

3m Thinking of rerolling to Boomy - thoughts? Hey everybody, Been trying to play my hunter in raids and not really happy with our recent class changes. Even if the damage gets buffed, the rotation feels clunky and tedious. I'm thinking of re-rolling a different ranged dps (guild has too many melee) and Boomkin seemed like the best choice for me. Things I'm looking for: -Fairly straight forward rotation with impactful abilities and room for mastery -Ability to switch targets quickly -Focus on single target, but passable AoE/cleave -Fun to solo/quest with Seems like Boomkin's are in a pretty good spot and won't be nerfed. I'm afraid to roll an S-priest because I feel like they'll be getting hit fairly soon. If anybody would be kind enough to share some of their thoughts on the current state of balance - I'd really appreciate it. Is it fun to play? Does it play well in Nighthold? Do you have to swap talents mid-raid to be competitive? Thanks!Kobesnipes2 3m

But since the launch of 7.1.5, I have only one plot. The other plot is never available to plant nor harvest. I waited for a while wondering... But... It's been quite a while now.

5h Make [Maul] Great Again Maul sucks. No one is using it because: Cost too much rage. Does less damage than an auto-attack. Has no utility over Iron Fur. Oh, and it's boring. Fix it plz, k thx --------------------------------------------------- This is Pumps: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmourne/Pumps/ Pumps is what you would call a "tryhard," but b/c he's a tryhard he places as one of the top DPS Guardian Druids. Pumps uses [Maul] whenever he can to increase his lead as a top DPS Guardian Druid. B/c he's trying so hard. These are percentages of Pumps' damage done by [Maul] on, Mythic Nythendra (Catweaving): 1.88% https://tinyurl.com/zbxjana Mythic Il'gynoth (Catweaving): 0.99% https://tinyurl.com/zvrse32 Mythic Ursoc (Not Catweaving): 0.96% https://tinyurl.com/gpbmtyj Mythic Xavius (Not Catweaving): 0.36% https://tinyurl.com/zbdm2af I could go on, but instead let's take a look at the percentage of damage Pumps' damage done by [Maul] was doing on comparable bosses during HFC: Mythic Xhul (Catweaving): 5.11% https://tinyurl.com/ho37npo Mythic Tyrant (Catweaving): 8.61% https://tinyurl.com/zk9x3ds Mythic Mannoroth (Catweaving): 5.55% https://tinyurl.com/hsc8l32 Mythic Archi (Catweaving): 7.61% https://tinyurl.com/gs99jll It should be clear that [Maul] sucks and we need to Make [Maul] Great Again.Nickymoonaj157 5h
5h Travel Form Yesterday I was running at 200% in travel form. Today it's 183%. What's up with that? Stealth nerf?Skruffles52 5h
5h State of Feral and Nighthold Look Blizzard, I know Feral rotation was already considered difficult, but I need to applause for the amazing balancing act that was placed upon its difficulty level. I'm fully aware that Feral isn't designed for AOE fights like many classes, however to say when a spec struggles to maintain a steady single target rotation with little to no room cleaving outside of combo gens, then you release a raid full of fights with tons of AOE and nerf that said spec. It baffles me that feral is even still a spec with as little attention as it's given. Please Blizzard, I want to play feral, Switching specs in this expansion alone is one thing but switching to a ranged caster from an agi melee just doesn't belong. Ok done with the rant now onto the more important words. Druids have always had the unique option of choosing so many different ways to play their class, having a tank, healer, ranged caster, or melee agi. That was fine back in the days when stat weights were less important or artifact weapons didn't exist. Being a spec these days means that you ARE that spec. I could switch to a completely different play style but, i don't want to, nor can i without effectively resetting all my gear and progress on my weapon. This expansion is about spec, not so much as your class. I just want that to be clear. Current problems with the spec: Cleave: Currently Feral is in a bad position for beyond one target. The rotations energy regeneration does not offer a satisfying amount to feed any form of cleave outside of using your combo generators, and you might say Moonfire (if you took it, please take it's best atm) and rake are plenty of damage for cleave, and normally you'd be right, however in practice with our combo points desperately being needed to maintain even a single target rotation we need to crit as much as we can with Shred. not to mention being able to fit an extra 2-3 casts of moonfire and rake on another target along with rake on the cleaved target not having a proc of blood talons (unless you catch it with a savage roar rebuff which you are usually scrambling to get anyway and don't care about anything but that 25% doooeee) Cleave just doesn't exist, you have no extra combo points for a Rip maye able to cleave off a peasant Rake upon your extra foe and a Moonfire, but it just doesn't compare when most of your damage comes from Bloodtalons procced bleeds. Single target : It's been said before in a dev video that feral is meant to be high on the single target meters yet somehow we've found ourselves even under performing there. I'll be honest even the single target rotation is punishing. you mess up a Bloodtalons here to a savage roar there and BOOM there goes about 20s of your rotation down the drain to catch back up. The fact that we have to Bloodtalons every Rip and Rake is fine. In fact i love that game play, but when you suddenly don't crit 3 times in a row, no omen of clarity procs and your Predatory Swiftness is about to run out? burn it hope for a crit it doesn't and your left with 4 combo points and needing a moonfire to flesh out the rotation. Which should no be the case, the point of a Dot is to apply it and leave it, i shouldn't need to use a talent such as moonfire to keep the rotation moving smoothly. A specific situation, but after the crit nerf it happens a lot more than you'd think. The single target rotation is stagnated when your just trying to regen energy to get a Shred off every 4 seconds which doesn't feel like a cat is all. also at points when you have a Bloodtalons proc and are unwilling to spend it on a shred seeing that your rake WILL need to be refreshed with it, leaving you to..... Moonfire the boss? Yeah Moonfire it to death, build them non Bloodtalons using combo points /.o. / Savage roar: At the Beginning of this expansion i was thinking that this was going to be the worst thing that's happened since Feminism. I was right, This right here is a large part of the beauty that is tearing feral apart. moving it to a talent that was obviously going to be the correct choice was one thing however then taking the duration down to 24 seconds was completely ignorant to where Feral needed to put its resources. While energy regeneration at the moment plays a large part in Ferals clunk savage roar needing to be maintained every 20 seconds (give or less its good to refresh for that xtra time ^W^) for 5 combo points is, awful. It's really just awful. Sure you can go Incarn and pretend your a bad paladin for half the time they get wings, or sure omen of clarity, even more RNG for which abilities get the damage buff try snapshotting now!!!!Horticulture39 5h
8h Balance Hidden Appearance Credit Question: While in Balance spec, IF I wield the artifact appearance: Sunkeeper's Reach, "Complete 200 World Quests..." red scythe am I getting credit for the hidden appearance progress? I use the Feral and Bear hidden appearances when I am in those specs. I've gotten lots of progress with them. But now I'm switching to Balance for content... I have read that Archdruid Glaidalis, drops the Pure Drop of Shaladrassil's Sap in Darkheart Thicket. BUT I no longer remember if I got that or not... It could have been months ago at this point.Zoopagoo1 8h
8h Feral Artifact Traits Oh man guys, check out the artifact traits we're getting... tiger's fury will now generate an additional 40 energy when all traits are filled. http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/2155458-Patch-7-2-PTR-Build-23436-Artifact-Traits THRASHING CLAWS (new)- when filled, Thrash damage will be increased by 40%. Sharpened Claws- swipe increased by 56% not to mention all the ST buffs. We are going to be great again =DAllesaria3 8h
8h Please help me improve. Balance dps. ***Outdated*** - Scroll down please ^_^ I'm pretty new to this spec, so I think I might miss something important. I joined a guild progression pug tonight, to do the best dps I could, and I think it's pretty low, at least warcraftlog says I should be pulling around 300k dps. My alts did better dps at this ilvl, my spriest did around 260k single target without stm and my ww monk could hold 300k+ dps on any fight. Those characters had much higher AP at that point like 26+ and my monk had his BiS legendary. My boomy is at rank 15 with no legendaries yet. http://imgur.com/a/UzsRn I dinged 110 on my boomy 5 days ago, so there isn't much I can do about AP at this point, but maybe there's something else I can improve on? Like stat cap. Should I work towards Crit/Haste until 30% and then dump everything into mastery/vers? Or how does it work on Balance? What are BiS trinkets should I be fishing from M+ and EN? BiS relics, I guess it's dots and starsurge crit? Deadly Grace or Prolonged Power? Any great theorycrafting sources are very welcome. I'll dig deeper into warcraftlogs and google tomorrow, but for now any advice from a real player would help me a lot. Here's my logs from tonight pug EN heroic: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fhVwJrNgXmz24npk/#type=damage-done I'd highly appreciate any help ***Outdated*** - Scroll down please ^_^Ríãs16 8h

12h Resto Druid stat priority? Is there a change to our stat priority in any way? All of these guides I read contradict themselves. And the WA keeps saying mastery is more valuable right now. I mythic heal for raids. I am generally in the 80th percentile, but am trying to improve. I believe it is because of my mastery. I read on one site our stat priority is int, haste, crit, mast, vers. And on another I read that we are supposed to average our builds across at 20%. I have 2 builds and am looking for advice from an experienced resto druid healer on what stat build is more optimal for the new patch. I have done research on a lot of sites and resto druid discord but cannot find the "right" answer. Please help. Crit 20% Haste 22% Mastery 17% Versatility 3% Crit 25% Haste 31% Mastery 8% Versatility 4% Thanks for your time.Anieren3 12h
13h It's do or die for Feral. First logs are in! Feral parsing within the bottom quarter of 200 on single target dominant progression fights. Now is the time to barrage the devs with complaints in an attempt to get Feral fixed before Mythic opens up and those poor Mythic Feral raiders get benched. According to the logs, about a 10-12%% buff is needed for Feral to be able to break top 50.Rhahen9 13h

17h (Feral) Kicked out of raid for low dps I've never been kicked out of a raid for low dps ever, on any toon, in all my years of raiding on WoW. Never. I know this spec, I love this spec, I'm good at this spec. Yet no matter what I do I just fail. Ret Paladins, Spriets etc just blow past me doing 500-600k dps and I could never do that, especially considering how many ad fights are in this new raid. I'm really, really hoping something changes for feral soon. Feeling awfully discouraged.Vail6 17h

18h Guardian Bugged in PvP and WPvP our spells are very buggy I'm guessing when honor talents come into play lots of spamming a keybind for a spell like swipe and thrash and nothing happening and I don't think malornes swiftness is working as intendedFunny6 18h
18h New to balance Hey guys. Im fairly new to balance Druid and the guild I'm in needs range. How are Balance? Is the rotation difficult? Any suggestions and advice I should Need to know?Jonteshifter0 18h
19h (Feral) ST. What is it going to take for us To be competitive on a (Max) ST basis? In other words, what changes can be done to raise the ceiling on the amount of DPS we can pull in a given fight? 4 days later, our max feral parse on ST bosses in NH is 593k. Krosus, a fight that 'should' favor us, we sit at 572k DPS max. And I'm talking about 890++ level ferals out there. You're telling me that when I go from 885 to 895 ilvl, my DPS will increase by about 30-50k with 'average' RNG? that's ridiculous.... improve bleed scaling? Improve dmg on ferocious bite and shred significantly (4set takes care of that, I suppose)? Have our trinket work with incarnation for that+4pc tier make us shredders?Xinlul11 19h

23h Kicked for low dps on my druid Blizzard has nerfed my class so much that I'm the first one kicked for low damage when we wipe in a heroic or LFR. I'm disgusted with how this game has come down to, "Pull 400k dps or you are worthless!" I don't even know what's good for 840 ilvl but I clearly missed the train now that everyone is 880+/50+ traits and expects 400k single target. I wonder what I should reroll to because I don't want to be stressed out over a damage meter on a video game. I can't get gear to raise that number if I'm kicked constantly and can't get a legendary to drop.Gandryna11 23h
23h Feral pvp fights Just wondering what my fellow druids think concerning what classes they crush in pvp (includes wpvp) and what classes they don't. I'll start. I personally hate fighting affliction locks. They're squishy but their damage and healing is insane. I love fighting warriors. All my bleeds + thorns = no more warrior.Desaroot1 23h

1d Guardian in NH so I'm here to get some opinions on a couple of things. 1. the lack of vers/mastery gear in NH I believe its 1 piece not counting the tier chest. 2.tier set bonus seems underwhelming 3.Trinkets/I have the Stam trinket from the first boss the !@#$ ton of HP is nice but the effect seems underwhelming was wondering if M EN trinkets will still be BIS until mythic NH comes out I cant imagine ever using the Gul'dan trinket and the Crit and prevent death trinket effect seems very good except its crit which is weak IMO.Funny10 1d
1d which legendaries? (tank) hi all, I am struggling to decide which 2 of the following 3 legendaries to equip for the purpose of mythic+ runs. Prydaz - the downside is no versatility on it. but the amount of incoming damage it blocks is quite substantial so I'm almost certain I want to stick with this as 1 of the 2 I equip. Skysec's Hold - I love love love having a failsafe to Frenzied Regen. my healer says it makes his job easier. however when using the boots, I am seeing more overhealing from the added healing as well as from my healer (despite having an ability macro telling my healer when I'm healing myself). I did install a weakauras for FR % this morning that may perhaps help me to improve my timing on usage. Elize's - I feel these would give my group a little extra dps on trash (which we struggle with, we excel at boss dps) which could help. I take Rend and Tear instead of Pulverize when wearing the pants, which gives a little bit more dr on the tyrannical bosses this week. dps-wise when NOT wearing the pants, I take Pulverize. because Pulverize is not off the gcd, I feel I'm losing globals maintaining the buff that I'd otherwise be using to swipe and help aoe trash mobs down. granted this isn't a lot, but I feel anything even a tiny bit extra dps wise will help us on trash. some of my issues can very well be player error related (I admit I am not perfect and do make mistakes). if anyone has further input on positives and negatives of these choices that would greatly help me, as well as if there is a for sure above and beyond definite "pick this!" option. I do not as yet have the legendary bracers or this would be an easy clear-cut pick for me. lol I do have the logs from our m+ runs last night, using a Prydaz + Skysec's Hold combo. we did not have our assassin rogue available so instead brought a guildy dk for our first 2 runs and a pug shaman from our friends' list. if any comments for dps, Tristañ and Lunatide are our 2 regular dps. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pBT6WMaf74dGPkH2Lilywind3 1d
1d Druid Healing Sites The Resto druid healing guide. When I look at the stat order for raid healing it lists Haste number one and goes down the order, then it references Mr. Robot as a good reference. When I go to Mr. Robot for Max raid healing it Reduces Haste to 8% and crushed Mastery saying mastery is number 1 stat. I have looked at virtually every guide this expansion and all of them are all over the place. Does anyone have a very accurate site they use. I for one stack Haste, Crit, then mastery and I am getting crushed by Shammy healers and most others. Not used to being in the back of the pack. Also BIS gear I look at sites and they are also all over the place. Mr. Robot doesnt even list any tier for bis while wowhead lists most of it being the best minus the chest. But when I look at the tier gear it goes against our supposed stat priority too. Almost every piece of tier has a crap ton of versatility on it. I believe this tier is the most confusing ever for resto druids. Ive been a resto druid since Naxx and this is by far the worst time I've had. So if anyone can link me some sites that Don't contradict each other it would be greatly appreciated.Geomas3 1d
1d We trust /simc? I tried it out for the first time last night in conjunction with Pawn. It wasn't impressed with some of my gear choices. It told me several items I have in my bag were upgrades. The problem is that it dropped my haste from just under 30% to 25% in lieu of mastery and, in some case, versatility. I have read several comments from people saying something to the effect of "get your haste to 30% and you'll be good". Simc, even after making the changes it suggested, still weighs haste as one of my lowest stats, if not the lowest. It now feels that I should be doing 377k in it's 5 minute "Patchwerk-style" fight, up from 340k. What's the story?Dirtyboi8 1d
1d Owl Glyph & Owl Mount. Am I the only person who thinks blizzard cheaped out with our class mount since a lot of people have been flying around as the sentinel owl since the beginning of legion(outside of legion zones obviously). In my opinion the druid class mount is basically the sentinel owl made a bit bigger with sparkly wings, little extra hair on the head and a druid symbol... ohhhhh soooo creative there blizz, really. When every other class gets this crazy new thing to ride on(obviously besides warlocks and paladins but I think their remodels are cooler then the owl), we get to turn into a bigger version of a glyph that was already in the game, seems a little lackluster to me. I was hoping that they would have it look a little different for the different races but I seen the finished products and I'm not totally impressed, changing the colour don't make it look any less stupid.Leska4 1d
1d Gear Sharing Between Specs? Which two specs are closest as far as gear sharing is concerned? Boomy+Resto? Bear+Feral? I'd like to focus on two specs without having to have two completely different sets of gear.ßulletprüf3 1d
1d sotf + stellar drift st? if im running these 2 talents for boomy mythic+ should i be using starfall or starsurge single target aka bosses? the tooltip for starfall shows it doing nearly 100k more dmg than starsurge but you dont get the empowerments you get from starsurge... BUT you do get the dot empowerments from starfall, should i be spamming starfall single target or keep with starsurge?Alex8 1d
1d Feral Hidden Artifact Ok guys I heard the "screech" today as I ported from the Eye of Azshara to the emerald dreamway. It came up as an emote saying "You hear a strange feral screech coming from the Hinterlands portal." I went there and looked around at each location was shown online but after 30m of searching nothing was found. If anyone has any help that would be appreciated but that is all I have at the moment to help anyone else who is completely in the dark about how to start it.Thell453 1d
1d Feral Druid Insight and Suggestions I was just in another forum post about feral druids and posted this, but the title seems to be a bit offputting for Blizz so i fear they may not see it. Feral is low in terms on Utility/ST damage/Aoe damage balance. I would say one of the bottom 3 out of all spec. Feral does not perform in their "Niche" as well as they should and I also am not a huge fan of the fact blizz is trying to make them viable for AOE, but it is not working. Mostly because to do meh aoe we have to sacrifice talents/energy that we should be dumping into priority targets. Personally i think blizz should scrap alot of the AOE idea they have with Feral and put them back on Priority damage. Because plain and simple as it sits now there are many other specs/classes that do EVERYTHING better than a feral. Atleast if we were kings of priority target damage we would have a secure raid spot. SUGGESTIONS: (Because feedback is important) 1. Scrap the Feral 2pc in NH, Thrash combo point does very little for us. (Here are some replacement ideas) - Bleeds do 2% increased damage per missing 10% of targets hp. - Ferocious bite reduces the cooldown of Ashamane's Frenzy by X seconds per combo point. - 1-3% chance to Reset the cooldown of tigers fury per combo point spent. 2. Jagged wounds wins the talent row to hard in all situations, and it also makes it increasingly difficult to maintain Bleeds on multi targets. - Maybe a talent that increase energy regen per bleed up? would make it so a lot of bleeds would mean a lot of energy regen, which would help maintain more bleeds. 3. Make Brez instant cast and not take MOC proc, Probably should of been done long ago if i'm being honest. 4. We lose out on Single target and AOE damage to many other specs, and its hard to even name a spec that can't do either better. Ferals in my opinion should be one of the top single target damage (with 100% uptime on target) Granted this should come with good play, which means maintaining buffs and bleeds well and snapshotting correctly. Not the easiest of things to do.... But it feels so bad when you play Feral really well and you know your doing well on a pull. And you see other classes who have 3-4 button rotations smoking you on single target fights. - Bring Feral up on bosses that they can maintain great bleed uptime on. We dont need aoe as much as we need Single target priority damage. Granted aoe is nice but at what cost? Long post i know but i hope people get a good read. And maybe blizz will get some incite. Also for those of you still reading, I'm from a top 25 US guild Carebears so this is from someone who sees a lot of classes played well together and gets comparison from there.Itzwoodybear33 1d
1d I just got to 98 Boomkin I kept myself away from this class because I don't like orange color and the class icon(That's dumb? Yes) but heck, Boomkin is so nice and sweet to play, it's the most versatile caster at least at this level. How is it at cap? Does it scale well? I heard it stacks mastery, does the artifact Moon skill scale with mastery?Sietten5 1d
1d New Boomkins models?? Hey Blizzard, You seem to have plenty of time on your hands to create new models such as DK minions for 7.2. When are you going to "Make Boomkins Great Again" with new models for us? We only been asking since CATA and I am sure the DKs didn't even ask for those new models for their pets. PS, not that anyone ever uses the Force of Nature talent because it is so underpower and lame, but are you ever going to update that model?Fenril4 1d
