Shifting Perspectives: Balance druid leveling in Cataclysm, page 2 {WoW}

Dec 12th 2010 2:57PM Boomkin druids rarely, if ever, should need to single-target grind before 80 once they get out of the wee-druid levels. I leveled my druid from 1-to-80 post-Cata sans heirlooms. I don't know where the author is going saying Lunar Shower is a necessary concern for AoE grinding. It's not. The effect only lasts three seconds. It looks amazing on paper for tab-dotting (probably why it was recommended) but in practice the three second window often expires by the time you've found and tabbed to your next mob since you have to worry about Insect Swarm too.

From 1-80, this should be your general boomkin questing rotation:

Select new target > moonfire > insect swarm > repeat

Situationals:
-Thorns in areas where mob health is higher than usual (the Thorns glyph is amazing for this). The author overstates the effects of the Thorns nerf; thorns is still a great damage spell, especially when you get some spellpower under your belt. The bigger concern is mana cost; Thorns costs a hefty chunk of your mana.
-Shift out of boomkin to cast regrowth > rejuve when needed
-If you need space, cast typhoon to get them off of you so you can heal or kite.
-Once you get Shooting Stars you can use it on mobs later in the dot-chain to bring them down to the HP of the rest of the mobs
-Once you get Sunfire, always try to stay in Solar Eclipse. The only single target damaging spell you should be using is Starsurge off of the Shooting Stars proc. Solar Eclipse buffs the damage of Thorns, Sunfire, Insect Swarm, and Typhoon...pretty much all of your essential spells. Lunar Eclipse will only buff Moonfire out of those.
-Treants and Starfall for overkill or if you just feel like pulling half of the mobs in the zone at a time.

Unfortunately, once you hit Cata content mob health skyrockets. You'll have to stop the tabdot fest and go back to your Starfire and Wrath ways. But as you go from 1-80, this becomes increasingly effective to the point where you in Outland and Wrath content you can chain tabdots until there aren't any mobs within a hundred yards of any given camp. Boomkins are terribly effective at this. We have amazing physical damage reduction, multiple escape options, and heals to get through massive damage.

The Queue: Conclusions {WoW}

Apr 19th 2010 2:15PM "Does the Lich King have amnesia? He has thousands of undead soldiers that could overwhelm the players just in Icecrown but for some reason he's just like, 'Nah guys it's cool, I'm just gonna chill up here for awhile. Wait, what's Tirion Fordring and 10 to 25 nameless heroes doing here?' "

The real reason aside... Yeah, do you remember how well swarming heroes with undead worked in the Battle for Undercity? If Sylvanas can leap from one side of the room to the other launching a pewpewpew arrow storm that would make any touhou character proud, imagine what Tirion MFing Fordring would do to the thousands of undead.

Breakfast Topic: The perfect group {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2008 2:28PM 5man:
Prot Paladin
Shadow Priest
Shadow Priest
Shadow Priest
Resto Druid

We can finish most heroics in an hour or under with this setup. We never have to stop, ever.

10man:

G1:
Prot Warrior
Enhancement Shaman
Feral Druid
Combat Swords Rogue
Ret Paladin

G2:
Fire Mage
Shadow Priest
Holy Priest
Resto Druid
Resto Shaman

25 Man:

*All elemental shamans using spellsurge

G1:
2 Shadow Priests
Elemental Shaman
Warlock
Holy Priest

G2:
2 Shadow Priests
Elemental Shaman
Mage
Warlock

G3:
2 Holy Paladins
Resto Druid
Holy Priest
Shadow Priest

G4:
2 Combat Swords Rogues
2 Enhancement Shamans
Feral Druid

G5:
Prot Warrior
Enhancement Shaman
Feral Druid
Resto Druid
Combat Swords Rogue

With the enhancement shamans spamming Stormstrike, the elemental shamans will start causing massive amounts of damage. Shadow priests keep everyone full up, and Warlocks will take advantage of shadow weaving. Is it practical? No, you'd only have people getting loot once every two weeks. Would it work aside from that? Hell yes.
