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.

2h Guardian druid dance mage tower I know this isn't a big priority over everything else but if they do eventually get a dance what would you guys like it to be?Lyana2 2h
2h resto in pvp i've started low-level pvping as a healer, and am considering making a druid for a change of pace. so, are resto druids fun in pvp?Brightglow1 2h
6h Bear threat in BFA This isn't a thread complaining about threat in BFA or about bear being bad/good. It's about a noob needing a little advice about becoming a "better" tank and dealing with the changes. With the threat changes coming in BFA I've heard a lot of people talk about how "bad" tanks are goingto be affected the most. I wouldn't consider myself bad exactly but I wouldn't say I'm good either. So in preparation for the changes I've been trying to pay way more attention then what i was before. In example: focusing on my mangle procs more and tab targeting instead of just swiping everything to death. As of right now I'm really only using moonfire to either pull further off mobs or when it procs for the extra rage. I feel as if I would get more dps if I tab target moonfire onto the different mobs in the pack as filler instead of swipe. At least for the start of the pack I could hit thrash and mangle followed by getting moonfire rolling on the mobs until a mangle proc or CD's are done. Am I on the right track or is swipe a much better option for threat generation and I'm overthinking it?Fuzz0 6h
7h Resto Challenge Staff appearance is... I'd think that once completing a challenge and you'd feel good about yourself "accomplishing" something, you'd get a weapon skin that would let others know "LOOK I DID MY CHALLENGE" like cats have/bears/mages/locks and other classes. When I look at Restoration staff skin's it's pure ugly non attractive garbage. Heck even completing "Balance of Power" looks better!!! When I look at Mage's staves how it animates, colors I go "awww" when I look at resto's challenge skin I go "ugly time to transmog this dull, ugly non animated stick". Please, Blizzard for future challenging modes, please have skins for weapons, so people would feel proud showing off their accomplishments rather than transmog it or hide it. Thank youElvinna15 7h
9h Why is artifact MOG so complicated? Just came out how BFA will be handling druid mogs of artifact appearances. Seems unnecessarily complicated. Mogging into the form but have to carry around artifact wep outside of form. Forms only showing in spec. Staves looking like daggers, etc. it just all seems weird. If there is technical aspects as to why its done this way i can get behind that, but why they didnt just add a new drop down menu for druids only called "Forms" or whatever and you choose what you want? Seems so much simpler and gives Blizz the opportunity to add more forms later to be earned and mogged in and out of. Would also love all forms to look how we want regardless of spec. Fire kitty for cat and were bear for guardian regardless of your spec. Just seems uneccessary to make only guardian druids have the cool bear models when you can switch to bear in feral spec. This just feels like rules for the sake of rules and no real reason behind it as it is all simply cosmetic. PS: Make the Fandral Scythe from Firelands available too with this system.Grayhorn7 9h
11h Balance notes Am I reading correctly that Balance Mastery now buffs Moonfire and Sunfire directly? Starfall no longer required for the extra damage?Skyfury3 11h
11h Feral Druid (Cat) vs Monk in PvE Farming? I was planning new character for the new expansion. I was thinking Kitten Druid or Monk (not sure the DPS one is called sorry). I played the Druid in the past and it was not too bad though not always a fan of the dot based DPS but outside that not bad. Overall I'm just wondering if anyone has played both and can help tell me their strengths and weaknesses between the 2. Also how well they one on one soloing mobs like grinding / farming a mob for a drop of equal level, etc. Thanks :)Discharge2 11h
15h Level as Feral or Boomkin? Just wondering which is faster/easierDecimator4 15h
20h Rate the tmog!! You know what to doDagimar0 20h
20h Druid forms in BFA I think this has been said already, but will we be able to keep our artifact skins in bfa since were losing our weapons?Cryis11 20h
20h I need some feral assistance Feral druids I need your aid!! Going feral in bfa and I have a few questions 1) aoe seems kind of weak but I'm newish, in bfa will feral aoe be competitive assuming the numbers are balanced? Do we have aoe tools? 2) does the spec feel okay going into bfa? A lot of specs have complained they got destroyed in the transition, I'm wondering how feral feels. 3) transmog... Do you get used to not really having any transmog to speak of most of the time? A big part of the game for me was xmog farming and going into a class where you spend most of the time in cat form is kind of jarring. Thanks!Phonebooth2 20h
1d BfA: 100% Travel Form: War Mode Only? Hey all -- I finally got around to looking at war mode talents, and I saw Malorne's Swiftness: http://bfa.wowhead.com/spell=236147/malornes-swiftness ... It looks like only Feral and Guardian get access to this talent. Is this the only way we're going to get 100% speed Travel Form in BfA? Will Balance and Resto not have such a thing?Monza3 1d
1d BfA Balance Talent Builds! Hey all -- I know its early, but we just got a big round of changes to our talents, so I figure we might be "done", at least up until 8.0. Any ideas on what the best ST build will be for Balance? How about M+? (etc)Monza6 1d
1d Feral PvP looking stale in BFA? Seems that way unless someone can point out otherwise. It doesn't seem like we get cyclone even though resto/balance still have it. In Legion we were super squishy damage bots that brought the ferocious wound debuff (is this even around in bfa?) and it doesn't look like it's changed. We're very squishy as a dps spec unless we can pre-emptively bear. I actually prefer this playstyle, but other classes have to be brought down to the Feral level of the playing field. Things like IBF are detrimental to the game. But seeing as it's highly unlikely Blizzard would touch their other precious specs in pvp I was hoping that Feral at least gets barkskin - but we don't. Our healing is exactly the same, mediocre - while Enhance & Ret seem to have better heals, better defensive cd's, better burst and be less squishy. If this has changed on the beta please let me know. Overall it's looking like a repeat of boring Legion style pvp for Feral yet again. Someone please tell me I'm wrong.Beerhaus11 1d
1d How are druids looking in BFA? I hear that there are some issues with all the specs. Is that true? I've only been following shaman changes so far and am probably maining druid in BFA.Kozz35 1d
1d Artifact Appearances Has Blizz figured out how we will be able to use our guardian/feral forms without daggers or fist weapons yet? Cause at this point if we can't use them it feels that all the effort put in to unlocking them was a huge waste.Cadenzia21 1d
1d Mage Tower Guardian So my ilvl is 916, which people have said should be enough. But I'm struggling more than I did on my brewmaster, which seems insane to me. What's up? Any tips?Otakka46 1d
1d Feral Legendaries. I've been working on my Feral Druid, and I've been using Soul of the Archdruid and The Wildshaper's Clutch (Along with 4pc LFR). Today I got Behemoth Headress and I'm wondering if I should replace one of the other two with it.Riverbrooke3 1d
1d DOT classes Hi all, I am trying to decide on a DOT class to main and am trying to decide between Feral or warlock. I would like to know what you guys think would pick. I’m wondering for this current expansion but also bfa for anyone who knows the changes. I think feral seems more fun but I’m worried about how hard I hear the spec is to play.Midgitt5 1d
1d bfa and tauren herbing Heard a while ago that they nerfed the flight form herb farming for taurens. Just curious if this is still the case in the current build. As it is one of the few reasons I still play tauren.Beastmàn4 1d
2d Which spec will you roll in BFA That is if you remain to be a druid and not re-roll. I myself might keep being a Boomy but feral feels tempting.Owlcatraz31 2d
2d im contemplating main swapping Feral seems like the ideal choice, its close to the dot spec i play but more high pace and thought provoking. i'm very hesitated about it... can you guys sell me on it?Demontune8 2d
2d Stealthed Shred Every time I shred from stealth my melee swing hits before shred does thus negating the crit/damage bonus. This happens on both of my druids. I don't right click, i'm tab targeting, and i'm not pressing shred before i'm in range. Rake works fine as I always get the stun/extra dmg, but never shred.Moonloop5 2d
2d Balance Rotation Fairly new Boomie here, leveled an HM Tauren from scratch. I fairly get single target rotation, but I really struggle with multiple targets. Per Icy Veins ... I understand all that, but between the GCD on Moonfire and Sunfire, and the long cast times on New/Half/Full Moon, I never feel like it's optimized and I'm always stuck somewhere in between. So many choices like: - If I'm at max Astral Power, wouldn't I prioritize Starfall over New Moon? - it doesn't seem logical to prioritze Moonfire dotting over Starfall, with all the GCD's it takes to cast Moonfire - Do you never Starsurge to generate a better Lunar Strike? Its seems like there are so many factors (amount of Astral Power, # of mobs, how long they will live, what form of Moon is ready, if an Empowerment is up, mob spacing) that it's the combo of all of those that determines the next spell to cast, not really just a priority system. Any better guides or words of wisdom?Auriga0 2d
2d Tauren or Troll? Which should I level? So I recently came back to this game and noticed the economy on my main server was bad (Pre-expansion, it gets that way), with items all in really low value, so as a gatherer, I decided to make a Tauren Druid on another server, where the economy is at a decent rate. Anyway, I've been playing it the past two weeks, but I don't know if I care about economy anymore, because even if prices are better on that server, it may be harder to sell things. My Tauren is level 62 now, but I also have a level 95 druid on my other server (The main server) which is a troll.. I like Guardian druid, but I'm open to the idea of playing the other sub-classes(Specs?), so my question is, what do y'all think I should do? I was going to farm herbs and sell them on the other server, that's why I went Tauren, but their racials overall benefit guardians.. Would a troll druid be viable for tanking? I'm just unsure what to do, cause I want to make gold, but if leveling is going to take forever, I don't know the point, plus that server may not have anyone buying the herbs. I was planning to transfer my Tauren to my main server, once the value of items went back up anyway, so I don't know. Maybe I can level both and just have one for two different servers? In case the economy doesn't go back up?Wràthful1 2d
2d BFA Resto Druid Got the Alpha Invite. Went for Resto druid first. So we lost Nature's touch...we just spam regrowth. Feels bad, but my mana was doing ok in runs, so I guess they accounted for the mana difference. Tranquility not being use-able while moving feels real bad. Tranq has always been a bit weaker I feel than other cool-downs because of their instant cast (monks come to mind) but their power was usable while moving. Our DPS seems very low while questing/assisting dps in 5 mans'. Over all it felt ok, but didn't feel as clean as live. Obviously because no artifact and PRUNE..but at the moment I'd say it feels worse than live.Defy26 2d
2d Guardian mage tower I only have Luffa's on this alt. Would it make a night/day difference if I had Ekowraith also? I'm not rushing on this particular skin since I'm also currently working on other alt challenges so I'm open to try for it later if I happen to get it through essences.Tellus27 2d
3d Guardian Druid Op 3v1ing melee dps in PvP. Needs a survivability nerf please...or damage too.Volksworgens9 3d
3d Target iLVL for Balance Mage Tower w/ Sephuz? Good day, I am dusting off this early Legion 896 iLVL guy for BFA, and thought I would gear up some and maybe shoot for getting the Mage Tower appearance before it was disabled. I have read that Sephuz (which I have) is the best leggo for Balance MT attempts, but the guides are all over the place (probably because they were written for various patches) about the iLVL bar. Having limited time left and mostly playing alone I wanted to get a good idea of that target. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.Xevestial4 3d
3d BFA Feral is it worth it Im very excited for bfa but will feral be good in wpvp and rbg's. What do u all think its looking like. i know or i heard displacement will be taken out in bfs not sure tho. What made ferals good to me was the balance affi. xtra 5 yards was great so all the melee and range ppl that ran away all the time i cougd still catch. stealth a + and just the quickness at times was better than average. survivability was equally good to me with renewal and quick Regrowth ..for a zerg party i specially loved Brutal slash and yes with the luffas that gave xtra 75% in damage and radoius was super... so the Question is What do u think Bfa will look like for us ferals any chance at worst we stay the same specially with bleed buildsWarrbeast7 3d
3d Spam Rejuv still a resto option? I'd like to heal in some 5 mans maybe up to heroic at best. Is rolling a resto using primary rejuv still a good way to do some easy healing for my kind of situation? I don't plan on running mythics and don't plan on using the druid as my main. Just want to mix things up with an alt with some easy healing. Thoughts?Sylocke3 3d
3d Another expansion of being benched inc. Why would anyone take a feral druid over a rogue, in any sort of content. This was the same question asked last expac, and rogues are looking just as strong this expac. Makes no sense to take a feral druid in any case. Prove me wrong. Assassination's dot's hit harder, provide healing reduction amongst other effects via poison, and rogues in general have more utility, ferals still have no cyclone, no barkskin, wont be getting MOTW, not single one of these things. And survivability is better on rogues as well. SOMEHOW? Sub spec provides insane amounts of burst while also giving you control, if you are feral, or pretty much any class thats not plate you will pretty much die in stun lock if not drop to extremely low hp, by which point you can forget fighting back, becuase bear form is garbage, and got hit with even more nerfs. Our healing is also most likely gonna heal for 2% of our hp per cast this expac too. Outlaws 'rework' is actually quite good, and even from a pve standpoint they bring insane amounts of aoe now, and ferals dont have any sort of aoe finisher for some reason, but abilities that generate combo points on aoe. This makes no sense to me. It's not like our single target is going to be so amazing that our aoe makes no difference, and we won't be wanted in mythic plus or arena's becuase all 3 rogues specs bring more of everything then feral. I am pretty convinced this is going to be ANOTHER expac where feral is left to its own devices untill its 3 months till the end of the expac until it get "fixed" whatever blizzard's definition of that might be. ' Not like this random rant is gonna change anything anyway, just frustrated beyond belief.Hydroxine19 3d
3d Best way to gear up for Guardian Mage Tower? I'm not sure what kind of content I should try doing to beef up my stats to try again for the mage tower. I don't tank normally, so I'm hoping to buff up my gear as much as possible . I've got three of the recommended legos, the chest, luffa, and legs. But the videos I've seen are recommending higher ilvl than i'm currently at 930, and are saying they have more than 1million health. (which my druid currently doesn't have) What would be the fastest route to better gear? I normally use Balance for group content, and atm because I've been focusing on gearing up Guardian, my stats and legos aren't as great for my moonkin spec, so I'm not sure I'll be able to do end game content on more than Normal. Would that even be the best thing to try?Lykhanis7 3d
3d Big tree raiding dummy attacking was this a new change or a bug? if you attack the big tree raiding dummy he attacks you back. i noticed watching a boomy hitting the dummies to the side then an aoe hit the big guy and he walked out and killed him. so i tried in bear form and yeah he attacks like a boss hitLolwtfnoobs7 3d
3d [beta] Guardian = worst tank Low damage, rotationally boring, no dmg CD... Instead of some changes for the betterment of the spec they have time to nerf bear form stam bonus from 30% to 20% http://www.wowhead.com/news=284935/battle-for-azeroth-build-26812-class-changes-talents-abilities-azerite oi.Gahru22 3d
3d Rip and Tear The pvp talent "Rip and Tear" fails to work sometimes. Please fix bug! Thanks :)Talason0 3d
3d Druid idle animation leaves, resto only? So this whole time I've only gotten the idle animation leaves in resto spec. I just assumed it was a resto perk or something to do with G'hanir. Then on BfA beta my boomkin spec was doing it so I reported it as a bug and someone informed me that ALL specs have the idle leaves. I am in denial here. I just spent almost an hour idling in different specs and it only happens to my resto spec. But my guildies can get it to work in any spec. I'm main spec boomkin for this entire expansion and only went resto for pvp. I'd have noticed it by now if it were happening to my boomkin spec as well. My worgen druid doesn't get the leaves at all ever. What's the secret behind these leaves? How do you make them appear besides being idle? Like is it some perk you have to choose? A glyph?Bolmung3 3d

4d Feral haste Does anyone know the haste cap for feral? I'm at 34% I'm cat form which puts my cat attack speed at .75. I'm curios if I enchanted ring to mastery or crit if that would squeeze a bit more dps. Thanks in advance for the help.Funkzilla5 4d
4d Healing Woes I'd like to play a healer during BFA so I've been lvling this druid through mostly dungeons to get some practice in and I've been struggling quite a bit lately. Granted I'm not yet max level and I'm new to healing so I'm sure that's the main cause, but I was trying to run cata dungeons last night and it was a disaster. The dps was taking huge chunks of damage at a time and if I switched my attention to them for more than 3 seconds the tank would drop dangerously low even though I was maintaining rejuv,lifebloom, and regrowth on the tank and casting wild growth on cd. I guess I'm just looking for tips or suggestions from more experienced healers. ThanksMoonmoon10 4d
5d Highmountain forms? Any update on if our forms are going to get a little bit more love? Not expecting much, but can we at least get antlers on our moonkin? An updated aquatic form would be nice.Shartah5 5d

6d Random mage tower guide (Bear druid) I'm feeling pretty good right now boys, I just completed this for the very first time. Seeing as how the mage tower is up right now, I just thought I would drop some random tips / pointers for anyone who might still be struggling out there. The following is what "worked" for me, enjoy! Druid alt's stats 932 iLvL from lots of Argus world quests, veiled argunite gear, and LFR runs - about 9.3 million hp - 70 traits on the artifact - 30% crit - 26% haste - 13% mastery - 11% versatility - 23% dodge Leggos used I didn't have any of the "recommended" leggos, so I used these instead: - Prydaz (for absorb shield / survive-ability) - Soul of the Archdruid Macros used 1. Tormenting Eye "easy mode" button: ... 2. Generic boss interrupt macro: ... Bind the macro to an easy-to-reach button for your fingers, it automatically targets the current boss and interrupts their cast. It is crucial that you be able to push this button on-demand even if there's chaos all around you. You must have Skull Bash off cooldown when the boss begins to cast, cannot stress this enough!! Talents 15 - Brambles 30 - Guttural Roars 45 - Balance Affinity 60 - Mighty Bash 75 - Incarnation: Guardian of Ursoc 90 - Guardian of Elune 100 - Rend and Tear Consumables used - Flask of the Seventh Demon - Drums of Fury - Bear Tartare Phase 1 - Inquisitor Variss This is a "rinse and repeat" phase that is actually super easy once you get used to it, it follows a simple, repeating pattern of (a) hitting the boss until 4 debuff stacks (b) killing the "Nether Horror" adds as soon as they pop (c) going back in on the boss until another 4 stacks. Very repetitive, but also easy once you get the hang of it. - I start the fight in Moonkin form from max range, to make Velen aggro the boss. Velen does noticeable DPS on the boss. - Only stand in "Aura of Decay" hitting the boss for 4 stacks, maybe 5, and then GET OUT until the debuff expires. This is literally rinse-repeat for the entire phase. - "Eye" adds are a non-issue if you just spam the macro whenever you see one. - As for the "Nether Horror" adds what I did was wait for them to gather up close to me (or around Velen) and then Thrash > Swipe > Swipe, when they start to cast "Nether Storm" I simply pop Incapacitating Roar. Rinse-repeat every time they spawn. - "Smoldering Infernal" adds can mostly be ignored, just keep kiting them and *always* stay away from them. I'll hit them with Moonfire if there's downtime. - As tempting as it might be, do NOT waste any of your "major" cooldowns such as Survival Instincts and Incarnation: Guardian of Ursoc in this phase. Using shorter cooldowns (Barkskin, Rage of the Sleeper, etc) is fine though. - Try to save the Velen orbs for when it's a "chaos storm" and a bunch of stuff is happening all at the same time, the Velen orbs are your "reset" button. Phase 2 - Highlord Kruul If you saved all your "major" cooldowns?? This phase will be a cake-walk, it isn't hard at all... just LOTS of incoming damage and some dicey moments at times. As with Phase 1 you gotta keep moving at all times, do not just stand around, kite kite kite. - Strategy for "Nether Horror" adds is unchanged, try to kill them asap. - Strategy for "Smoldering Infernal" adds is unchanged from Phase 1. - As soon as Kruul lands I pop Drums and Incarnation and *go all out* on him, mash your buttons for max DPS here... it is a DPS race as soon as he lands. Pop anything else that can boost your DPS such as racials, pop everything!! - Interrupting "Twisted Reflection" is your TOP priority, and you should watch for it at all times! No matter what else is going on, he must not complete the cast. - For "Annihilate" you need to pop defensives each time he casts it, what you choose to use is up to you. For me what I did was 1st cast - Survival Instincts + Ironfur, 2nd cast - Rage of the Sleeper + Ironfur, 3rd cast - Survival Instincts + Ironfur. And of course, always pop a charge of Frenzied Regeneration right afterwards. Set up a little "rotation" for yourself ahead of time so you're not panicking in the moment. - A very helpful tip is to just *keep jumping*, jump constantly because being "off the ground" when he spawns his "Netherstomp" fel flame circle will prevent you from being slowed. This can literally save your life given how much damage the ability does. - Use the Velen orbs liberally in this phase, if you feel you are in trouble or in danger of being overrun, just run over and pop a Velen orb to give yourself a breather. Keeping the fight *under control* is more important in this phase than "saving" the orbs for emergencies. Conclusion That's basically it boys, just get Phase 1 down and you'll have your gorilla bear form - Phase 2 is just an extreme DPS race that should only take 5-10 tries to get down once you are getting to Phase 2 consistently. Like 90% of my wipes were in Phase 1, I think I got Phase 2 down in only about ~10 tries... Phase 2 went real quick in comparison. Feel free to comment, like, share, etc =)Gdtroll8 6d
