Forum Guidelines - Please Read
Welcome to the World of Warcraft discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/blog/930468) can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (http://eu.battle.net/en/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked.

Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.2
Doomsen's Legion PvP Restoration Druid Guide 7.1.5
Hey there fellow druids! My name is Doomsen and I happen to be a multiple times Rank1 Restoration Druid / tournament competitor! I've decided that I would like to provide a guide that covers more than just the baseline of Restoration Druid in Legion. Guides for PvP are fairly rare these days, so I thought I may aswell create one and help people out. This guide only helps to a certain level so if you are an "advanced" player, most of those information may be nothing new for you. Table of Contents 0. PATCH UPDATES *NEW* 1. Talents 2. PvP Talents 3. Artifact Weapon Talents 4. Healing 5. Survival 6. Druid Races for Horde / Alliance 7. Addons 8. Macros 9. Final words LAST UPDATE 22th February: Patch Updates with the Hotfix ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 0. Patch Updates - Going through Patch changes for Druid ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 22th February Hotfixes Our Abundance/Nourish specc just got heavily nerfed and probably means we're going back to the former builds with Prosperity/Cenarion Ward aswell as Revitalize and Fortified Bark which are all very viable options. Some are testing out Incarnation as of right now but I'd still not recommend that under other occasions than the ones mentioned in the talent description below PATCH 7.1.5 Overview Displacer Beast:The sprint after activating now only lasts 2 instead of 5 seconds. Focused Growth: Now also reduces the mana costs of Lifebloom by 50% Nothing really has changed for us Resto Druids. Displacer Beast will stay the best choice aswell as Focus Growths buff isn't really doing anything at all. Lower mana cost on Lifebloom really doesn't do anything because that is not our main concern at all. It seems that another set of talents with Abudance, Nourish & co may come to shine with this patch but I personally need to test it before introducing it. More to that soon! PATCH 7.1 Overview Thorns: Redesigned and are an option now. Beside dealing damage they also apply a debuff on hiting enemies that their physical damage is reduced by 25% for a few seconds which does get reapplied. Recommended against enemies with atleast one meele that do not prioritize you as their kill target because incase you are trained all game, Druid of the Claw should still be ahead. Disentanglement: We didn't really have an option against pure caster teams in that talent row. With Disentanglement we do and it works like a charm to remove snares from mostly our melee friends. Still not recommended to spam because of the mana costs, unless you really want to give as much uptime as possible in that moment. Cultivation: Received a 20% buff and definitely stays the talent to choose against teams that hit more than one target. Currently mostly used against Ferals, Shadow Priests, Affliction/Demo Warlock & Balance Druid. Also by far the best choice in Battlegrounds Fortified Bark: Puts your ironbark to 41% damage reduction (with Artifact Traits) on 45 second coodlown. As of right now, I'd recommend taking it against any comp that is not double melee where Revitalize comes in. Check below The minor nerfs to Relentless, Prosperity and Living seed aren't too big of a deal. Overall I would say Druid has gotten alot stronger this Patch. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. Talents (Not mentioned talents simply mean they definitely are no option for PvP) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Tier 1 Prosperity: This is currently my favourite choice. With Nature's Swiftness & Genesis gone we are lacking instant healing. Now Swiftmend isn't the biggest heal of all time, but it'st still decent especially with the 30% healing increase from our Artifact talents. It also goes really well with Soul of the Forest, incase we chose that as our Tier 5 talent but more about that later! Cenarion Ward: It does quite a lot of healing overtime and doesn't require to procc in order to start it's Cooldown. Sadly does not have an initial heal. It's defnitely a talent that can be chosen, especially in combination with Cultivation to get as many hots rolling to benefit from our Mastery:Harmony. Tier 2 Displacer Beast: Has been our to go talent since it's first been released. An instant 20yard teleport that also gives use a 50% movement speed is nothing we really wanna miss out on. Wild Charge: It's a really fun talent but I don't think it can compete with Displacer. Travel Jump is a way worse version of it and the shorter cooldown does not make up for that. I still use it sometimes for fun in Battlegrounds, but not in competitive, ever. Tier 3 Guardian Affinity: I have used this talent throughout my entire time playing Beta. A passive 6% damage reduction aswell as a life regeneration with Frenzied Regeneration in Bear form makes it to a talent that you can pick in every situation. Also Ironfur can come in quite handy sometimes (More about all that in the Cooldown Category) Balance Affinity: The reasons for choosing Balance Affinity is the longer range on Cyclone aswell as being able to deal with dispelling Polymorph without running into the dilemma of landing into one ourself while doing so. The only times you wanna use it is, when you are very certain that you will never be the target of choice for your opponents because not having the Guardian Affinity effects, does make a big difference surviving wise. Making use of Balance Form: All of us got turned into a Sheep while trying to dispel our friends out of them and with Balance Form you can avoid that because Purify Spirit does not shift you out of it, so there's no worry about that. Balance Form does have a global though and obviously not required everytime dispel a Polymorph. Getting used to it will take you time, quite a bit of time even but it's good. It also allows you to cast Regrowths or Overgrowth without making you leave the form. Any other healing ability will though. Tier 4 Mighty Bash: As we have no other stun it comes in very handy in a lot of situations. Taking out a target for 5 seconds can be game changing and offers other follow up, such as Cyclone, without having to worry about being interupted by that player. It will stay as the main competitive talent. Mass Entanglement: With Legion being fairly meele heavy right now, being able to root targets off you can give you that extra space to get to safety in a lot of situations. Does sadly break from damage. With Iron- &Barkskin no longer rooting targets, they are never on a diminishing return, atleast not caused by us! Also there seem to be fairly less roots in the game as before. Can be taken situationally Typhoon: It's something I would almost consider not worth mentioning. Since WoD this ability has lost alot of its power. It's fun knocking people off the Blades Edge Arena bridge for example (if it even does succeeds) but does not give generally close to as many possibilities as the other two. Tier 5 Soul of the Forest: With Legion they've again changed the ability but buffed the Rejuvenation & Regrowth bonus by another 100% which really does make those to very powerful spells and even those 75% on Wild Growth can be great sometimes. You also gotta keep in mind that a larger heal of Regrowth does also include the healing the target will receive through our Living Seeds. Also as mentioned in Tier 1 - With Swiftmend having 2 charges and a shorter cooldown it just has the perfect synergy. Tree of Life: I know that ToL is a fairly common talent, especially in casual / lower rated brackets but it generally does very poorly. Throughout it's duration it's great:30 seconds of immortality and instant rooting but at the end it's a 3 minute cooldown and you will lack sustain healing before and after using it in a lot of situations. I would go with the talent in a situation where you really feel like you just die too fast and would like to just give your team (arena that is) a tiny bit more time to maybe get control in or the victory. Cultivation: Can be seen as an additional Rejuvenation that is applied at 60% health. Received a 20% buff in 7.1 and definitely stays the talent to choose against teams that hit more than one target. Currently mostly used against Ferals, Shadow Priests, Affliction/Demo Warlock & Balance Druid. Also by far the best choice in Battlegrounds Tier 6 Germination: It just is the Tier 6 talent to go for. An additional Rejuvenation on a target is always good and being able to have two Soul of the Forest enhanced ones on one friendly player does heal quite a lot of damage away. Spring Blossoms: It's the to-go talents In PvE but that is because Effloressence just simply has a way higher value there. It may still be a cool thing to go for in Battlegrounds when you have those well placed Effloressences with teammates staying inside of those. But not sure how valueable that really is at the end with people constantly moving. Tier 7 Stonebark: This is sadly the only talent in that Tier that is good for PvP. But it's a great one so it's fine. Having Ironbark on a 60 second cooldown and the additional 20% healing done by our hots is good..91
Therapy Lounge for Healers - The Legion Edition!
On the 14th of March 2012 Valonia made the longest running topics on our beloved Healing boards. I don't think anyone could have imagined that at the present day, this topic would still be active. And since I can't decribe it better then Valonia did, I'm shamelessly going to copy / paste her welcome post as it describes the Lounge perfectly. ... Ladies and gentleman! I bid thee welcome to the new Therapy Lounge for Healers - The Legion Edition! Lets keep this awesome place going, and see how far we'll get this time :D.

Looking for advice on a second spec
Hi guys, Wondering if you could provide me with a little advice (or to spark a discussion that may lead me to make my own decision): I've pretty much solely played Boomy so far (used my legion 100 boost on this druid), but I'm kind of getting a little tired of being a turret o' death, and specifically, the cast times. I'm looking to branch out onto another Spec, at least so I can get another style of play out of it. I'm kind of new to the game (2 and a bit months (this isn't my "main", that's a character I'm actually levelling properly), and was just wondering what you'd recommend as a solid second spec? I'm kind of thinking resto or guardian, I'm open to the idea of Feral, but have heard it's a little more complex and that if you don't get the rotation right you'll suffer. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.2

Feral Druid - Heirloom Gear List
Hello, I would like the list of a Feral Druid Heirlooms. I plan on leveling a Fire Mage and a Feral Druid in the following months. I've found a list of heirlooms for fire mages, which is pretty straight forward (Critical all the way), but I'm still in need of Feral Druid Heirlooms. Apparently they need Critical, Mastery and Versatility as stats priority, and, of course, Agility. Some help in choosing the gear? :D3
Blizzard please fix DPS Druids in Mythic+. Petition?
Both druid dps specs are by far the worst ones for mythic plus dungeons, period. It is a large part of the game and many people focus on them for many reasons, for example: - Good gear alternative for people who do not have time for dedicated raiding. - The challenge to push it as much as possible. It has been around 2 months since the expansion released? And druids cannot have their fun in that big part of the game. They are plainly too weak; bad AoE, no utility (Reality is any class with an aoe stun is better despite what blizzard wants to think in their Q&A), mediocre single target damage (moonkin), hard ST rotation compared to all other specs (feral). I guess we have to shout loud and strong to get our way as logic clearly is absent here. Warlocks got their buffs by crying loud now i guess its our turn. So leave a sign or approve below and with enough pages maybe we get noticed. Mythic+ logs - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/statistics/9#metric=dps. (credit to Ceai for posting) ! 7.1 Edit ! DPS druids get basically nothing (no global cd on incarn. lol). Guardian and resto get nerfed. Best spec in the game, fire mage gets AoE buff. Some more "positive" info, 7.1 sims - http://www.simulationcraft.org/reports/Raid_T19P.html (credit goes to Joppenpuhh for posting). Spoiler alert both druid dps specs are bottom, there goes feral incredible ST. Blizzard hates druids :)495
Boomkin DPS help needed!
Okay, so despite my Main Spec being resto, I am currently using my Boomkin spec in raids (NH Normal and hc) more frequently, and I've noticed a distinct lack of DPS on my end. I am currently doing around 350-400K DPS on the average boss, perhaps a little less depending on the fight. But I am usually quite far to the bottom of my guild's charts. I don't know whether or not to attribute this to a lack of legendary items for my Boonkin spec or if it's something else, but despite my gear level it just doesn't seem to be improving much. Is there a problem with my talents, or does a legendary item for any given spec really make THAT much of a difference? I also have a big issue with AOE, as by the time I've built up enough astral power to use Starfall, most of the mobs are dead and so it doesn't make very much difference. Fury of Elune doesn't seem to help either. Any advice on why my DPS is so low and how to improve it?1
Druid's Feral on LEGION: 7.1.5
Thanks to all DRUID comunities of all servers, around Druid Feral's to put this thread up!! Perhaps a day in 2017 a DEVELOPER see that's some players play this spec!!! Do not let this thread fall into oblivion! Make it the biggest thread with some hundreds of pages! We need yours FEEDBACK! We need people! We need MVP! We need SOME BLUE! We need it to be read by DEVELOPER PLEASE! PLEASE Blizzard or community Manager give them DRUID FERAL FEEDBACK' s PLAYERS.. Because this specialty is played by few players, it is very little watched by the developers. And yet it deserves several improvements... AOE ( Mechanic, Damage, rotation...) = mythic + .... Mono (The worst rotation of all spec with to many spells and timers) Bonus PART T19 (AOE spell on it...) Please just read DRUID forums. I specify that this post is not a post to petition but a post that is intended to be read by developers a day so let your feedback please!384
Feral Goodbye, goodbye Warcraft
I read on the forum developers reply feral state. http://blue.mmo-champion.com/topic/798749-do-u-get-insulted-for-playin-ur-spec/ It is sad because in reality you are not working on it. You alone are responsible, you know, you see, are working on this. But I'll tell you that feral degrades gradually since the Cataclysm. And here you can see the natural ending. You are invited to play a healer or another class. I have an account on the characters of different classes, but only like a feral. It happened. Do you think it's OK, because should someone be at the bottom. It is true, if there are leaders, then there are outsiders. My choice is a feral, but to play an outsider, I do not want to. For myself, I see only one way out. Stop playing. After reading the opinion worker Blizzard realized that most of the game waiting for nothing. I played without interruption from the start of Cataclysm. It's time to say good-bye to all.37
Beginner to healing LF help
Hey Druids! I've recently switched mains to this Druid (leveled to 60, then boosted). I intended on playing Balance but after looking over the Restoration spec I've found I actually really really like healing. Obviously I'm a complete noob to this and I'm wondering what are some good resources for learning how to heal for someone who has been exclusively DPS for like 8 years. I've got to 9/10 on proving grounds gold (keep failing to a huge spike), done about 30 battlegrounds, and stepped briefly into a 5 man dungeon. I was fine in the battlegrounds mostly, but the dungeon was AWFUL, I couldn't keep up at all and I am 100% sure this is a L2P issue. If anyone could help me get started, that would be great! I've read over the Icy Veins guides, watched quite a few YouTube videos and I'm using Vuhdo and DBM for addons if that helps!3
Resto 4piece T19 casting animation weirdness
I've only recently started running with the 4 piece set bonus: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=211170/item-druid-t19-restoration-4p-bonus It's kind of hard to spot, in the heat of raidhealing, just how many bonus rejuws pop up out of the blue. So this is a bit speculative because of that. Here's the thing, I started noticing that sometimes when I was not actively casting anything, my toon would throw a rejuw casting animation. This got me wondering if this random animation was directly linked to the bonus rejuws from 4 set pieces, and more omportantly, if I have to be NOT casting anything else, for the bonus to proc? Anyone else noticed something like this, or can clarify how this works?4
