Hi everyone! I have a few things to cover today.
First, I was featured on WOW Insider’s 15 minutes of fame blog series. You should read the article about my experiences with WOW, my real life research, and more!
There are a couple of other things for druids I’d like to cover, as well, since I haven’t said a lot about druids lately.
- Team Waffle Cast episode from Friday wasn’t recorded live, but you can catch the recorded episode here!
- In addition, with 5.1 out now, there weren’t really major changes for resto or moonkin druids, except for swapping around a couple of symbiosis abilities. I have heard from various restoration druids that there are still some weaknesses in druid healing, especially in the case of dealing with burst damage. Posts about restoration healing problems, especially in 25-man progression raiding, have recently come from Beruthiel (Falling leaves and wings), my guildie Juvenate (WTS Heals), and Alison Roberts (WoW Insider). All of these druid bloggers are essentially saying the same thing: Blizzard didn’t solve resto druid healing problems in terms of how we scale from 10-man to 25-man and handle incoming burst raid AOE damage.
Fortunately for Juvenate, we’ll likely keep him around in raids, especially since we can lite his tree form on fire with our campfires.
