My Life As A 75 Resto Druid, In A Nutshell

  • Cast ALL THE HOTS

  • Shadowmeld!
  • CAST ALL THE HOTS

This is how bear became my off spec. It might be time to revist that…

Um, how do you bear tank again?

    Ashwalker just hit 71. We should figure out a way to let me tank for you if I can catch up.

    Here’s how you bear tank:

    RAWR!
    o hai danger bunny!
    mangle

    o hai!
    omnomnomnom

    and just repeat that until someone’s dead.

    I stopped healing tanks that can’t get aggro til someone has aggro on all the things. I healed dps most of the way through drak’theron (I think, the one with the giant raptor boss). I even just told the hunter in a whisper that it is fine for him and his pet to tank. Because the ‘tank’ would grip one mob from a group of 4, and tank that.

    HOTs getting me aggro -_-

    Oh, good. I’m not the only one. I was really afraid I was doing something WRONG with healydrood…

    My solution: I’ve got Threat Plates set up… and as soon as I see the nameplates change color, I pop bear form and run at the tank as fast as I can.

    Thankfully my main tank shares the same room that I do, so I can scream at him and he taunts.

    It’s really quite comical. My guild finds our little dance quite amusing.

    (And I really miss fade as well. And Power Word: Shield. And Desperate Prayer [for when I decide to run Holy for better numbers].)

    You need better tanks. My druid is at that same level and, unless the tank is really derping, I’m fine with aggro (and I’m really fond of my HoTs :P). I used to grab aggro even in raids (erm, my main is also a resto druid), but since the threat buff that hasn’t happened.

    I would say those tanks must be really, really bad to lose aggro even with the buff… but then again, my one attempt at bear failed miserably.

    This reminds me of a guild priest that had taken to leveling a druid healer and was having healing aggro issues while leveling.

    Druid: I keep getting aggro, I wish there was something I could do, I am so used to fade.
    Feral Druid: Shadowmeld can work.
    Druid: I am a Worgen, don’t have it.
    Druid: Do you know of any aggro dump? (asking me)
    Me: Sure, druid healers have a fantastic aggro dump, drops all aggro.
    Druid: What is it?
    Feral Druid: Really? Can I do it on my cat?
    Me: Sure.
    A few minutes pass.
    Druid: Well… what is it?
    Me: Death, drops all aggro, every time.

    It took everyone by surprise, about 6 of us where on vent laughing, it has now become a meme in my guild when someone dies they are dropping aggro. When I die when tanking I yell, crap, I lost aggro.
