Topic Easy mode Yor'shaj for resto druids.
So I got bored and went to kitty dps Yor'shaj in LFR. It was easy we all know.
But I found something interesting, when the mana void spawned and I was in Kitty form my mana did not drain. This means that potentially resto druids could shift to bear or cat and avoid the entire mana drain when they are healing, as opposed to say saving innervates for that part to have some mana.
I haven't yet tested this on normal/hc modes (will do that tonight!) but I would guess it to work the same, because that's how all mana drains in the games have worked thus far.
Anyway hoping some resto druids find this info useful!
Yeah I tried it out was a total waste of time. I was so hopeful too. I think you may have been right Una and it drained mana based on spec, although I don't know how enha or prot palas are affected.
Either that or the shift needs to happen before the cast happens, as in it may focus on players to drain at the start of the cast as opposed to at the end. But then would healing gained from having mana = healing lost from not being able to cast for so long? Possibly in normal, but I don't think so in Hc.
