Title: A small tutorial for New druids of VannilaGaming-By Anotherday
Post by: Arsa/Cosmar on May 13, 2012, 05:02:11 am
I'll start with some advice of  what kind of gear and from where you could/should get it,this is for anyone who just dinged 60.
On head slot it goes :http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18490 Because we druids will never need hit spell,and as you can see you get exacly what you need in the begining Mana+a bit of regeneration+High healing spell and crit.
You can loot this from Cho'Rush the Observer(Dire Maul-North )
In the neck slot it goes :http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18723
You can loot it from :Ramstein the Gorger Stratholme(UD side)
In the shoulder slot it goes : http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22234 Extremely high healing,mana and some mp5 which is most important for druids
You can loot it from :Lord Roccor BRD (near arena)
In the chest slot it goes: http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=13346
You can loot it from :Baron Rivendare Stratholme (UD side)
When it come to Back slot:Here you can choose to get : http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18389 Looted from Immol'thar Dire maul again,or farm a bit some mats and get  http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18510 Look for a leatherworker.
In the wrist slot it goes: http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18525
You can loot it from King Gordok Dire maul.
In the weapon slot it goes: http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=11932 But it's up to you if there's something better as MH+OH for you.
Here's the fun part :90%OF ALLY DRUIDS MISS  http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22398 which it goes to relic part.
Looted from: Mor Grayhoof -LBRS!easy kill!!
In the Hands slot it goes:  http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18309
You can loot it from :Alzzin the Wildshaper Dire Maul(as you can see,with 1 full DM run you can get like 80%of your gear)
In the waist slot it goes:the World BoE http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=14553 mostly you'll get it while leveling
In the Legs slot it goes: http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=20665 You'll have to look for the 33 healing legs,you can find those on AH at a low price.
In the Feet slot it goes : http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18322
You can loot it from:Hydrospawn Dire Maul.
In the ring slot it goes :2x  http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18395 But there are lots of others ring to choose from
It's looted from :Prince Tortheldrin Dire Maul
In the trinket slow it goes: http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18371+http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18470
That's all you'll need enough to do some healing +have some mana and regeneration,and you can get this gear from 5-10 man instance.
As for your Pve restoration spec you'll be forced to use :
http://www.wowprovider.com/?talent=11215875_11_8512ze505503145315051
Because due to your lack of gear your spells shouldn't be delayed either get agrro.
As for bad boys,who are pretty much OP geared,there's actually a hybrid spec which will allow you to keep Hot's up all the time and actually cast Healing Touch pretty fast if Nature's Grace proc.
http://www.wowprovider.com/?talent=11215875_11_85c30032020513s505103105313d
As for potion and elixir which every gleader suppose to make his members to have it are:
-http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=8423-->Quest in Blasted Lands
-http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=16971 or any others food buff which give you spirit=regeneration
-http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=13447 +http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=9179  Alchemist
-SCROLLS r4,intellect+spirit is all you need.
-http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=20007 Alchemist,you can buy those at low price or farm the mats for them and ask an alchemist to make it for you.
-http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=20748 Enchanter,buy some from AH,or ask an enchanter.
-http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=13931 Cooking,you need lots of mp5 as druid
As for your Spell on pve,in Wow Classic,druids do the most healing on a raid if he know how to do it
WE never do Healing Touch unless  Nature's Swiftness is on cd and the tank is under 20%HP.
All we do is to  keep Hot's up ,try to never use Regrowth due to mana burning +lots of agrro if you're 51 resto!
If you really want to do a Healing Touch,makes sure it's a 2.5 sec cast or lower.
Your innervate it's one of the most important spell you got,use it only on critical time or help a guild mate if he needs it .
Remember this Topic was for new members of VG community,if you got something to add do it,and hope we'll see more druids on this server.
If you need some more informations about Restoration druids /w Anotherday in-game,see you!
P.s-this was a short introduction about how to play druid restoration when you just started.

Hey Anotherdayonforum,
nice to see someone make a Druid guide. Here are some suggestions to improve it:

- use some more structuring elements in your postes. For example

  • line feeds
  • bold text
  • lists
  • links with hidden URLs (http://www.wowprovider.com/?talent=11215875_11_85e5c1h505050130302215105002k)
  • font size
  • color

- separate the topics: "skill tree", "equipment" and "general tips for playing a druid".
- mention that your equipment is only meant for healing and maybe list gear for the other druid builds

I could post some druid Tank gear suggestions later on if you want. I have a feral Tank myself.

I think you should rather write a guide about the class in general in which you point out which stats are important on the gear and why.
This is hard to read... lots of links, you have to search for the actual information why you should use the items which are also quite superficial.
Nice to see that you're trying to help but you should make it easyer to read.
I don't really know how to play a druid and this guide didn't help me since it just demotivates the reader :(

As for you,i don't really know you,but i'm a great druid on this server and i have lots of respect from lots of people,i know how to play my class don't worry.
And yes,u should never use healing touch,that because if u ever dueled a restoration druid or you have played 1 you'll see their main talent is HoT'S and NS is for HT connected.
Don't know if u have readed all the topic,but you can use 2.5 Ht's low ranks but not so much,druids=Hot's ,that's why Flash heal from a priest has less then 2 sec cast+they got renew too.(If u got my point )
If there is anyone willing to help me to0  improve much better this topic PLEASE do it,i'm actually looking forward to help any new druid on this server if he's willing to listen and want to.
Thanks again for reply's:D Best of luck to all of you.

Anotherday was prob one of the hardest druids to kill during battlegrounds and 1v1's. And yes... he is a great druid on the server. But i disrespect him because he's so hard to kill  :'(         was kidding.. gawsh

Healing Touch is the most efficient druid heal...
THIS TOPIC WAS ABOUT TO GUIDE AND NOT START A WAR ABOUT SKILL'S LEVEL!
Healing touch is not your most efficent heal because,here's an example:
Healing Touch (Rank 11). 800 Mana, 40 yd range. 3.5 sec cast
Rejuvenation (Rank 11). 360 Mana, 40 yd range. Instant cast.
My Rejuvenation does 500 hot/3 sec,over 12 sec that's 12:3=4 hot's ,4x500=2000 healing in 12 sec with 360 mana
Healing touch =3.6 Hit(normally)with a 800 mana req
Now do the math,360+360=720 Mana that's for 2 Hot's ,2000+2000 4k healing with just 720 mana and it's over time,means i won't have to cast it over and over again.
With my 2 reju's of cost 720+in this 12 sec i get atleast 150 mana back,i'll be able to do a Healing Touch rank 4 =880 healing
You do the math now and see who wins,reju or HT?

The issue with your calculation is that you are not making the distinction between pvp healing and pve healing. In Pve healing the vast majority of our HoT is going to be overheal after the target is topped off by a priest/pala/shaman.
