Druid: Full Guide!

Hey guys! Tristie here, and in honor of our 100th follow, we'll be giving away a Razer Carcharias headset!


Now I know audio equipment isn't my specialty, it's actually Mac's, and you can follow him here at:

But it's patch day, I'm in a great mood, and this headset is completely bad ass. You know how things work, leave a comment, and you're automatically on the list to be randomly chosen.

In other news, Druids have been, in my boy friend's words, "Anally reamed." I'm just going to assume that means nerfed, but that's no reason to not put up a guide! 

There are typically two ways to build healer talents. You can go into a more damage-centric build, where you retain your high end healing abilities, but are able to spam low damage spells. Take for example Wrath.The talent: Fury of Stormrage reduces the mana cost of your Wrath spell, and gives you chance per damaging hit, to make your next Starfire instant. So, why is a damaging talent, as good as this, not in the Balance tree? (Druid Caster DPS specialization) Simple, so healers now have an opportunity to specialize into damaging spells, and actually deal out some hurt.

These new damage talents are excellent for any 2s or 3s teams that need that extra push to down an enemy. The unfortunate side effect of most of these are, you sacrifice important healing perks, and in the end, get so caught up spamming, you lose your partner all together. So in my personal opinion, do not specialize into these, unless if you're leveling.

Talents: 7/3/31 





Advantages: This is your premier mainstream restoration build. Only minor tweaks, depending on your team composition, and damage talents, should be changed over all. My favorite part about this build has to be Furor (Allows you to shape shift into a form with energy or rage already gained). Furor is an amazing talent to get that quick bash off on a target, when you need to help your partner out, and stun a healer or DPS. It could mean the difference between a win or loss.


Disadvantages: As mentioned before, you do lose out on those damage talents, but they are NOT recommended. 


Glyphs: Druid glyphs are extremely situational. Choose them based on what you are doing at that specific time. But remember, as a Druid, survivability and healing (In that order) are always your first priorities, which is the reason behind choosing Barkskin.




As always, have fun, play to win.

I've been slowly leveling a druid since most of the time I am raiding knocking out the last few heroic bosses we have left to kill(9/12h). Maybe I can use some of this info when I finally hit 85 lol :)

I usually do not create a leave a response, however after browsing a few of the responses on this page "Druid: Full Guide!".

I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not
mind. Is it just me or does it look like like a few of
these responses look like they are coming from brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I
would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Would you list of every one of your social community pages like your Facebook
page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
