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.

54m Epic Druid Names Give me some epic druid names.Bloodrain62 54m
57m 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.Ashclaw8 57m
1h 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.Inanis0 1h

1h Does anyone have all their Legendaries? Just curious. I think I am up to 23 of 35.Ayleena2 1h
1h Worgen Instead of Cat Form for Gilneans Since so much attention is being paid to druid forms for the new races I really thought this would be a good time to re-suggest this. Give Gilnean druids a glyph or spell that lets them stay a worgen in cat form. There's really nothing more feral than a werewolf, and they're often represented in game as such. Hell the option could be available for bear form, too. This requires no modeling or art work just a simple glyph or spell to maintain your Worgen form.Arilsn10 1h
2h zandalari Troll or Highmountain Tauren Druid? What race do you think will be the better Druid, mostly bear. Highmountain has the better racials for tank but the Trolls looks a lot better. Anyone got opinions on this?Wrathh2 2h
3h Fresh 110 heals Just turned 110 and am at ilvl 833. The heals are very weak in pvp, and I am getting targeted and killed very quickly. Obviously this is because I'm at such a low ilvl and resto druids get tougher and have more survivability as we get to like 930 + right??Sned4 3h
3h BEST Druid Professions Hello, I'm sure this has been discussed more than once. However, it's been a hot minute or two since I have played hardcore (Aka BC days). What professions are best to choose for a Druid these days and for what reason? Please, explain in detail. I am looking do do both PvP and PvE and find a happy medium. I am looking to be Feral/Balance. My main was a Druid back in the day and I had Jewel Crafting / Enchanting. Enchanting felt like such a gold dump- but, I appreciated the benifit of being more self-sufficient and not stressing to find a chanter for my things as well as the added perks. This time around I was thinking Alchemy/ Herbalism. I am not concerned about choosing a profession to make gold here- but to be more effective with my damage. I need expert advice to decide! Thanks in advance! =DLunabell23 3h
3h Dungeon Required? I'm stuck on the class hall quest line. I'm 110. I've done "Gathering the Dreamweavers" and "The Grove Provides". Hamuul Runetotem is standing outside, but I can't generate the quest to talk to him. The only thing I haven't done is "The Protectors", because of the dungeons. Is it required to complete the class hall quests? (FYI - I'm in a tiny guild that doesn't field enough players for a full dungeon party. I've had abysmal luck with LFG dungeon runs, and I tend to avoid them like the plague.) Any help would be greatly appreciated.Cloudcat3 3h
4h Feral macros? I am trying my hand at Feral (actually, been doing a lot of character/spec swapping before BfA hits). Are there any macros you guys may use that help with the rotation?Kiljin4 4h
5h 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! :DSeruvim33 5h
6h 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.Itslippy7 6h
6h 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?Seitheach1 6h
6h (Land) Travel form question What speed is it supposed to be? I've seen a few places mentioning 100% speed, but for me it's only 40%. Is it a glitch or is it intended?Macedolago5 6h
6h New Cat Form Idle Animation Growl So now, when idle while in Cat Form, your character will periodically emit a very loud growl. While in stealth. Seriously, did nobody see this as a problem?Khatos30 6h
7h 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.Leafmealone21 7h
8h Updated Restoration spell effects? Do we know if there are any plans to update the Restoration druid casting effects? I've still got the same 2D leaf effect from over a decade ago on my hands when I cast everything except Wild Growth (which looks amazing). Also, Effloressence is still a mushroom for some reason.Cye1 8h
10h Mage tower help I completed the Guardian, Balance, and Feral mage tower. Looking for help and tips for the restoration mage tower. It mostly comes down to the NPC's kicking the bucket, I get to the 4th or 5th wave and the mage is just ripping my people apart. I interrupt, but it doesnt matter or doesnt seem to matter. Anything would be nice, please and thank you.Atróxis6 10h
10h Feral Druid alpha Hey guys anyone play a max level feral on alpha? If so is their survivability better than on live?Lothenar4 10h
11h Tigers fury on the gcd Was wondering what other ferals think of this change? Also curious to hear from people that have tried it in the alpha. I’ve been playing feral since late cata and this is one change that I do not understand. There are times in my rotation where my rake/rip have 1-2 seconds left and tigers fury is also coming off cd at the same time. Have TF off the gcd allows you to to TF and apply a bleed at basically the same time. Having TF on the gcd seems like it would be extremely clunky and unfun. I don’t mind the other abilities they’ve added to the gcd but I feel strongly that TF needs to stay off the gcd.Grizlee16 11h
12h 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.Defy21 12h
12h 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.Cambrady12 12h
17h Feral in BGs? sooo my highest level toon is a feral druid, but while i enjoy bgs on many other toons i never got into one as feral are they any good or are the bleeds outhealed before it even does anything? idk i haven't seen many in random bgs. the one that actually tried to 1v1 me on this shaman was so bad that i tried to run away (to the objective) until my hp went down to around 50% and i still beat him when i turned around..Zraux4 17h
21h Just a long over due question. Ive played since Nov 2004, I've main as druid and hunter back to back. 1 form that i wondered about was the warrior form, they bear tank among the other tanks, why play bear as a tank, or caster as a space chicken, feral why play rogue as a cat theres 3 specs to choose from, . heals the same.. But warrior wheres it the brute smash and bash fantasy for that, sneaking around as a cat is cool as heck, Leading your team into the fray also as a bear with tatts, tribals markings a great fantasy. So will there ever be a warrior form? Or is it possible to give bear the ability to choose tank or smash. Just a question.Sìlf2 21h
23h Dismount from my back. How? So I’m in elk form person gets on my back and they can’t get off of me till I switch forms. How do they dismount without me switching forms?Takeluck1 23h
1d Anyone else not having screech RNG luck? Good morning fellow Druids! = ) I'm at AK6. Last week, I got the Feralas screech on Wed and found the stone no problem, but got nothing the rest of the week. So far this week, no screeches. I ported to the ED this morning. I run the dump commands to confirm that I didn't miss any. Am I the only one not getting multiple screeches in the same week? Thanks for your time. <3Tarmoch53 1d
1d 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".Ursarex4 1d
1d Nythendra Frustration LFR on raid, 4 times in a row, and Nythendra had already been killed when I got into the raid. BLIZZARD, this is not nice, and reeks of poor code and design ... so you set up a quest that is not doable many times for ALCHEMY, and this is frustrating. I do not like to complaint about raids and such, but this is bad. It is bad enough that you can not force a group to do Grimoira, then you create another raid that the mob required for some loot, is already dead and done ... you could AT LEAST state that 1 mob had been killed in that RAID, and it would be obvious the 1st one was done and gone, and I would drop the raid request ... instead I get punished for 30 minutes! Al__, plz help get rid of this crap. This is not right!Guruguru3 1d

1d Heart of Zin Azshari I have done Eye of Azshara like 6 times on mythic difficulty without using keystones and I CAN NOT get the heart of Zin Azshari to spawn so I can pick it up. My understanding it is really close to the last boss. I have looked all over the fricken zone. I have the quest in my log book but I can not get the heart! Do I have to tank the dungeon to get it to drop since it is for a bear artifact skin? I have been doing the dungeon in boomkin.Laserbear5 1d
1d 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.Breanni15 1d
2d What am I doing wrong? I'm leveling this character with the express purpose of learning how to heal, and it's the first Druid I've ever bothered to level past a specific threshold in the twelve years I've been playing this game. Usually I focus more on DPS or Tanking, so healing is pretty much an entirely new experience - and this is compounded on by the fact that I've just come back from a three or so month break from the game. I decided to run a dungeon while leveling today, just to get back into the groove of things, and I felt pretty confident because I knew what abilities to use, at what point. Unfortunately, the group I was healing wiped three times and members were dying left and right to trash mobs. We wiped the first time to Naz'jar (first boss) and then again to Ulthok, twice. The group blamed me for being a terrible healer and promptly kicked me on the last wipe. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, as I'm assuming I'm doing everything that'd be considered "by the book" for Druid healers - Keeping Lifebloom on the tank, Rejuvenation on everyone, Regrowth on proc and when massive damage needs to be healed, Healing Touch as an extra heal to use, Wild Growth and Efflorescence for group heals, and Swiftmend on emergencies. Any tips or pointers from "career" Resto Druids would be greatly appreciated because I want to keep playing this character, but if I keep getting kicked from groups because they think I'm terrible, then that's going to sap away any motivation.Ishaina7 2d
2d 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?Boxworld3 2d

3d Feral Hidden Artifact Appearance If we get the emote - do we have to go into the portal right away? I teleported, then jumped into a BG - it wasn't until after doing so that I noticed the emote. So if I finish my BG and then jump into the portal - will I still be able to find the stone?Liòn4 3d

3d Guardian Druid Challenge is a Nightmare First things first, I don't understand how to survive Kruul in phase 2. It seems nearly impossible to escape his stomps as a druid. I always freak out whenever the nether horrors pop out of their portals to spam their insanely life-threating ability. I also love how the infernals will use smash right in your direction without you realizing it. Also, Velen is the worst healer known to man and yet he is considered a hero amongst his people. As you can tell, I am struggling with this challenge the most. I keep bashing my head against the wall, hoping for a miracle. I don't understand how phase 2 requires a DPS check to kill Kruul? Sure, DPS is important for tanks but this isn't a DPS challenge. Survivability is extremely difficult because phase 2 is just a mess. It is almost impossible to down Kruul before he absolutely obliterates you with annihilate and stomp. One mishap with him getting a twisted reflection off and you are done for. How do I survive his stomps when my mobility is limited to just dash and stampeding roar when they are used to get out of "oh !@#$" situations. I mainly use stamp and dash for orbs in order to retake control of the fight. The infernals are a huge problem because of their unexpected smashes that catch you off guard when you focus on mangling Kruul to death. Not to mention, the nether horrors trying to make sure you do not exist at all. As for phase 1, I have no problem at all. It is the most manageable phase then 2, but I still end up flying off the platform occasionally from an eye or infernal (mostly from an infernal). I have an ilvl of 930 and a legendary belt with an artifact lvl as high as I can get it. I use pots, bear tartar, and the defiled rune. Also, I'm trying various talents to see if any give me an edge in the fight. If anyone can show me a useful guide or strategy then I would be more then grateful!! P.S they should remove smash as it is just a stupid mechanic. Replace it with a short snare or something instead of knocking you off the platform...Morphèus10 3d

3d Mage Tower 4th Tint unlock broken Update 11/16 Still broken UPDATE 10/5: I now have all appearances unlocked for my artifacts (Guardian, Feral, Balance, and Resto)... EXCEPT the 10 dungeons for restoration. Still bugged, still unable to unlock the appearance. I'll be updating this thread until it gets fixed, since awareness seems pretty low. I want to put this out here for awareness to other druids. I have completed ALL 4 of the mage tower challenges on my druid. After I completed all 4 and unlocked the new artifact appearances, I ran 10 unique dungeons to get the 4th tint. Upon completion of 10 dungeons, the Guardian, Boomkin, and Feral tints unlocked, but the Resto one did not. I reported this 4 separate times until a GM was finally able to reproduce the issue on Blizzard's end. They submitted it as a bug, and I did as well. The first 3 submits were not helpful, I was directed that I didn't unlock it in the first place, that I needed to clear my addons, etc. If this has happened to you, please submit this as a bug.Grakus29 3d
4d Questions About Balance Druid I have a couple of questions about the Balance Druid rotation. I read a guide on Icy Vains and I’ve been playing Balance for 67 levels, so I have some basic knowledge about how this class works but I’m not completely satisfied with the gameplay. I feel like I have gaps in my knowledge of how this class is played. My first question is about the Lunar and Solar Empowerment buffs. The aforementioned guide states that these buffs stack up to three times but whenever I use Starsurge while these buffs are active it just resets the duration and doesn’t seem to stack anything. It seems like a waste of AP, what am I doing wrong? My second question is about procs. I read a forum post that stated the difference between an “okay Druid” and a “great Druid” is knowing when to use what spells when the right procs are active. Which procs are important to know of? The only one that I’m familiar with is Owlkin Frenzy. I’ve renewed my subscription to this game on and off for awhile but this is the first time I’ve actually gotten into it so I’m unfamiliar with some terms, I’d appreciate it if you’d respond in layman’s terms.Alkkal4 4d
4d Hello My feral is 930 and I've stumbled into Some questions! I got the leggo boots. So It seems to make sense to go bloodtalons for tier 100 trait? Does this trait buff any ability by 20%? I was thinking of macroing it to ferocious bite brutal slash and rip to take advantage of predatory swiftness? But not being online or testing on a dummy I am unsure as to what bloodtalons buffs exactly? Next 2 melee abilities? I assume all? Are the boots a good leggo for feral? I think with a macro the constant regrowths wont be such an issue and 20% seems damn good. Any tips and advice are appreciated. I am running about 25% crit 10 % vers 64% mastery and 27 % haste. I am main as restro to get into groups but I moonlight as feral :P Another question/... on sin rogue my 1 combo point rupture bleeds for the same as a 5.. with reduc duration obviously.. is it the same for feral? update- just got helm, so feet n helm, got prydaz also.. but .. ew :PLegendborne5 4d
