Well since my DK's already 80, I can take him pretty much anywhere to farm. That won't be a problem. It's just the getting up of effort enough to actually log on him and farm mining while still working on my shammy. I picked up a couple pieces last night in naxx, though we got a lot of crap we ended up DE'ing >.<.

Ran at about 2.6k overall for the run, hitting up to 3.2k on boss fights w/heroism.

Anyone here use bartender? What's the general consensus on it? I'm going to switch to it from Dominos because every time I looted a badge off a boss last night, my top bar flipped out and wouldn't come back so I had to relog each time, which messed up my WWS report >.<

I use bartender, much cleaner configuration than dominos or bongos in my opinion. Makes it easy to configure a lot of different bar behaviors.

I got Bartender too. Works like a charm, imo.

Maybe you don't have the last version? Similar bugs happened to me before when an add-on was a bit outdated. :/

I use Dom and have never had that issue. They do have a lot of switches though so who knows.

Well, I got Cosmic Lights and Cape of the Unworthy Wizard out of naxx last night.

Still no god **** ******* starfire idol. I also fell short by 43 dps of making 5k on patchwerk. I have a feeling that if I had starfire and insect swarm glyphs instead of my pvp glyphs I probably would've broken it. The fun part though in the first part of the fight I'm pushing like 7k dps :D

And Horsemouth I've finally got a day of ease at work where I can cruise the boards.

Someone in another thread mentioned the lack of good sticky in this corner of the forums.

I'd be willing to do a bunch of it but my knowledge isn't perfect, especially with the caster side of druid life.

Who else would be willing to help with such a project?

I know the mages had a similar issue as the poster who made the sticky was no longer active; much like us. I think Pold and Anobix made a sock puppet to make the actual post. I like the idea of using a sock puppet for it as then if the poster is no longer active the site admins can have the user password and give it to a current poster to redo the thread. Given the forum's support of course.

So ya who else is interested in this?

I'll give it a few days to cook. Then see who is interested, make a sock puppet and give the password to interested parties.

Had to clean out a old co-worker's PC and move it/get ready for the new lady.

The old guy had nasty web links involving raunchy *** acts and what not and a heap of excess files. Not to mention 2 different games installed on the PC.

Gross but an easy way to kill an hour or so.

Best part the other PC that was in the office I was moving the PC into, which is going into storage, had a wireless keyboard and mouse.

Those are now mine. Score one for Horsemouth. Especially nice as my old keyboard was a bit roughed up due to me getting angry at it and exacting my vengeance physically.

Keyboards everywhere fear the wrath of THE HORSEMOUTH :P

I'll help on a sticky. I've been feral dps, tank, boomkin and pve Resto since the x-pac.

I think the easiest way might be to give those who're going to help a format and then we can break it down by sections and each do our part, bring it together, edit for a week or so, then post it up. We just have to be careful we don't run into problems with 3.1, because that will be cause for a lot of editing.

Arex, do you have any top notch elemental shammies in your guild? How are they stacking up as far as dps on boss fights vs you if you do? Just wondering. We have a really great ele shammy that I'm trying to catch up to on my alt and it makes it so much easier to do Kel on my shammy than stand in melee range with a 2 stack of melee at each spot.

im guided out. ive written something like...eight? nine? i dunno how many anymore. ill contribute if need be, but there isnt really anything i know that others on this baord dont.

unless you want a section about "ye olde skoole" and how it was done back in the day. i still have yet to see the vast majority of druids execute a proper 180, or do anything remotely resembling effective kiting since BC launched. and no, pillar humping doesnt count. thats not kiting; thats being a @#%^ *** *****.

but yeah, just call me quor. some of the kids at school asked if they should call me mr...i told them to just use my first name. mr sounds too teacher-like and im not a teacher. ****, half my facebook friends are the 6th graders i work with. which caused a funny situation after the first week or so, when all these kids started friending me and i said to myself "hmm, i wonder what the parents of these kids think about the 27 year-old dude thats friending all of their kids on facebook." thankfully nothing came up, because apparently the kids talk about me in a very positive light to their parents, so thats good. but for one weekend there i was kinda panicking lol.

i find it endlessly ironic that my line of work largely involves me teaching kids life skills and how to interact in a socially appropriate way. i mean...socially appropriate? me? hah! i scoff. but there it is all the same.

Yeah we do actually, his name is Spander and he's pro. Ever since elemental had its tree redone his dps has gone up considerably he's usually on par with me or a little less.

We also had another elemental shammy, Lygo. She was elemental all throughout BC so she was sort've the blacksheep with me as boomkin but I remember her putting up 1k dps+ in za back in the day.

It's good dps there is no doubt. I don't know though how gear dependant the class is though.

Just a spot to start organizing information.

Will try and start adding stuff over the weekend. Going to read over the current sticky and see what is reusable.

Will make a DruidSock poster in a few days.

I put down a basic moonkin overview with a bunch of crap that I'm sure will eventually need to be filled in and gone over.

The one thing is does anyone have a stat ranking table for boomkins I can get my hands on?

Well Arex and Galen have signed on. Quor is excused, for now. Anyone else interested in helping? We using Friar's numbers as they are sweet and well then we don't have to do math. :)

Anyway, I plan on catching up my druid readings over the weekend. EJ and a smattering of o-boards.

I don't work tomorrow so will do taxes, laundry, cleaning and maybe some Naxx25. I'll read up in between though and start writing up more stuff on Monday when I go to work.

Looking over the page I added a few more things and I figure I can get started on a moonkin overview tomorrow at work. I'm going to assume we're just gonna do a little "This is what *insert moonkin/cat/bear/tree* is all about. Boomkinz is 4 lazerz." type thing.

I'm hoping work is slow tomorrow morning, as it usually is and I can get a good start going.

Also, even though gryphon has a compendium up I don't think links to certain boards and what not would be bad, namely EJ boards for breakdowns and what not of the math.

Hot Sig.

I added in some stuff stolen from the previous FAQ and updated.

Will keep working on it. Was busy all weekend.

EDIT: Here's your Druid History Thread Quor

Enjoy

Bahahahahaha my guild has downed all content in wrath now.

My guild was able to down 10 man sarth 3d last night. All melee group, so it excluded me, but they did it finally.

With the collapse of one of the other raiding guilds in the server we've now absorbed three or four more people to our pool of raiders. We FINALLY have a blood dk and 2 feral druids, one of which has a 25 man sarth 3d tank set.

Ulduar, you better be ready you son of a *****!

Achievement shot.

Took a few wipes but was a lot of fun.

Lost armor, lost HP, regemmed gained HP back, lost a bit of dodge. But not really that much. Will be less when I run dailies for money and get the 8/12 gems instead of the 7/11 ones I had.

UI is in progress. Have some things I like fix with the frames. Also have to get mob that does cast bars working. Want a new buff system as well.

Overall am pleased. I like Pitbull better than xperl I think.

SD is... I don't know yet. Still studying my combat logs to decide.

Working a new rotation. FFF does a crap load of threat/damage now. Well enough to work into standard rotation at least.

6 second CD on FFF.

4.5 on Mangle, talented.

Might spec out of Imp Mangle to make it easier. Not sure yet. The rotation would be way cleaner with out Imp Mangle. Will have to compare the threat and rage usage difference. Could easily put the 3 points into KotJ which would increase cat power by a good amount. Still Mangle spam but I imagine a huge cat DPS boost.

I'm in the process of making a new UI as well. Still trying to figure out which addons are actually working still.

How did you feel your rage generation was? Were you still pretty much full at all times and able to spam Maul/swipe as before?

I ended up having to heal a 10 man naxx last night for a group of guildies we're trying to keep up to speed on gear so they don't fall too far behind.

Healy spec I'm still in. Here is my tank spec. I went ahead and bought dual spec last night. I figure, I only dps from time to time on this toon and now that I have my Shammy, I can take him to dps instead, so I'll go with a Tank spec and a resto spec. My Tank spec is built around maximizing damage to maximize threat. I never really need OoC as tank since I always have rage and like you said, I think it'll be easier to rotate FFF into the rotation without IMP mangle.

I DE'd all my boomkin stuff I'd gathered and sold the Abyss crystals on the AH to fund my epic flyer that I need to get around to doing. I'll never go boomkin. I like my shammy for ranged.

I'm interested in the Savage Defense stats. Can't wait for you to post up what you saw. I'm going to attempt to do some testing in the next couple days. Real life is weighing me down this week. Not sure I can get much done on the FAQ either, we'll see.

That is why I have to fix up my UI, I had no rage bar easily visible. The rage bar shows in a party and solo but in a raid it was hard to tell.

I was still spamming abilities so I don't think rage was an issue.

As for PG vs MS. I don't know yet. There is barely any trash in VoA. I want to get a better idea of the damage from Mangle, FFF and Lacerate with PG so will try and remember to run WWS while doing an instance tonight.

MS might be better damage and threat.

Tell me how your tree plays. Especially the no OoC.

Either way I have to start running dailies and finish up Ice Crown for money as I can see a series of respecs coming up in the next few weeks.
