Interview With Conspiracy Resto druids

So, today is the return of my interview series with Conspiracy’s druids. Last time, I interviewed two feral druids. Today we have two Resto druids: Angsinyl & Chapel. Happy Tuesday maintenance day!

1. What is your druid character’s name?

  • Angsinyl

2. What is your druid’s main spec?

  • Restoration 18/0/53.

3. How long have you been playing WoW?

  • 330ish days

4. What has been your favorite part of the game in WotLK?

  • Playing my Deathknight. Seriously though, I loved the additional healing functionality WotLK gave Restoration Druids. The AoE awesomeness of Wild Growth made me smiley and giddy, and the single target goodness of Nourish made me more confident when paired with a tank. Perhaps it made me overly confident at times. Regardless, my tankers did not die as much!

5. What has been your least favorite part of the game in WotLK?

  • Banging my head against a wall

6. What do you like most about the druid class & your spec?

  • The shape shifting ability. It is what drew me to the class. Also, the ability to melee while healing. It is just fantastic being a Whomping Willow right in the thick of battle (during farm content, of course). I like the play style of the Restoration Druid most. I have multiple targets to monitor in addition to the NPCs and myself. My spells are green and pretty; you know, all naturey. I enjoyed showing people back in the day that Druid healers are worth their mana.

7. What do you like least about the druid class & your spec?

  • Not having increased Tree of Life melee damage from Brambles. That and not displaying my armor in any way during combat. Beyond the cosmetics, Tranquility’s lack of practical use disappoints me. It is such an awesome spell that I never used. Other than those, I am not so picky to dislike much about my class and spec.

8. If you could change one thing about the game, what would it be?

  • I wish druids had more shape shift functionality. Some kind of incentive to be in multiple forms within an encounter would be super cool. Perhaps a Resto’ Bear could offer temporary and situational buffs to a tank. A Resto’ cat could do the same to melee dps, while a Resto’kin would be the caster version. Damage would not be the purpose of such functionality. It would be about group support in an unorthodox way.
  • How about a Resto’Feles distributing damage across the raid or through certain classes/roles? Maybe all of a sudden, a RestoUrsus could provide a damage soak (that doesn’t kill the Ursus…or does /shrug) or transfer incoming damage to a second or third NPC? These would still be ‘Resto’ abilities. They would just be wholly different from what we know now.

9. What raid instance from WotLK was your favorite? What was the best part of the instance?

  • I liked Ice Crown Citadel a whole lot, but I think I would have to say Ulduar. The lore behind it grips me more than that of ICC, and Ulduar has a summonable boss in addition to its legendary. The best part of the instance is difficult for me to pick, but I loved the train ride to Mimiron.

10. What is your favorite instance of all time (either raid or 5-man)?

  • Dire Maul, the set of them as a whole is my favorite instance. I love that place. At the time it was vast, secretive and effing hard. One did not just waltz in and complete a tribute run on a whim.

1. What is your druid character’s name?

  • Chapel

2. What is your druid’s main spec?

  • Resto

3. How long have you been playing WoW?

  • Since 2004

4. What has been your favorite part of the game in WotLK?

  • I would have to say the cross server dungeon finder feature, by far the best thing about wotlk.

5. What has been your least favorite part of the game in WotLK?

  • How quickly Tier sets go out of date. I remember getting [Epic] and was so happy….that was i226. Going from T7 to T10.1, T10.2, T10.3…. srsly?

6. What do you like most about the druid class & your spec?

  • So many things to choose from. Diversity of shape shifting, Instant Flight Form. Tons of instant heals for on the run.

7. What do you like least about the druid class & your spec?

  • Tree form. The day it came out I wanted to cry. Thought it was soooo stupid. Looks horrible, cant see gear, use to move at half the speed (Thank God they changed that!) I mean if they could at least make us look badass like the tree off Poltergeist, coming thru the window or sommin!

8. If you could change one thing about the game, what would it be?

  • Make resto druids more versital in raids. Like our Rejuv spells cast on enemy targets would apply a poison debuff or the ribbons would have thorns and act like a saw of thorns on them with bleed damage….. that would be awesome.

9. What raid instance from WotLK was your favorite?

  • Im a fan of the collisium. Not that it was difficult but was done well and giving us players something to do as they work on the Icecrown content. The Faction Champions was my fav part. Most unique to anything else in the game.

10. What is your favorite instance of all time (either raid or 5-man)?

  • I will say the 5man i232 content was brilliantly done. All 3 of ‘em and how well the player interaction was done and leaping from one instance to the next untill we actually got to see Frostmourne.
