@4 "given current itemisation"Yes. It does indeed suck that Kara does not drop more +dmg leather, which would benefit boomkins, elemental shamans, and resto shammies and droods who need to solo.People who insist that balance druids "should just wear cloth" need to STOP thinking about moonkins, and elementals for that matter, as mage wannabes. Our crit output is NOT intended as nuke damage, but aggro maintainance.We have amplified crit aura when we are also have 360% armor, melee summonables, and the ability to switch to staves that increase that armor as well as our attack power in cat, bear, dire bear, and MOONKIN forms. People who insist a druid's role is simply to spam starfire aren't paying attention to how all the pieces fit together. Other classes can dump aggro, druids do not. There's a reason. Moonkin are the last line of defense if the caster group pulls aggro off the tank. We need the armor of leather, and value +crit to maintain the next highest number in KTM. I know it sometimes means the moonkin dies, but I prefer the death of an owl over that of a priest.Bring on Zul'Aman.
