Now that I've gone resto (as of last night, actually), one of the best pieces of news in feral history (okay, in a while)... On the PTR:
Swipe: This ability will no longer strike any secondary targets which are under the effect of crowd-control spells that break on taking damage. i.e. Polymorph, Sap, etc.
This will be absolutely amazing for feral druids, and give those of us (-coughs-me-coughs-) a fantastic reason to use swipe more! This also applies to Multi-Shot (hunters), Avenger's Shield (paladins), Chain Lightning (shamans), Felguard Cleave (warlocks), and Cleave (warriors). Which means, as BBB has pointed out, no more mages (again, such as myself) hating the group because SOMEONE broke their sheep on accident! Okay. It'll probably still happen as there are still idiots out there, but... Less so! Oh, happy days for the druid AND the mage!
And the best thing that has come to the land of WoW music for a while has to go to BBB for his adaptation of a Johnny Cash song... (Click the link to his site to hear!)
Right. Enough with the Big Bear Butt. Really. Just because I am missing my own (although the tree is very pretty!) doesn't mean I have to haunt BBB's blog!
A-yup. That's right. I am a tree now, and am slowly starting to realize that I can heal heroics. (Something I should have known ages ago, as my gear hasn't improved too much since I last was resto, but ah well). Here are my stats as a resto druid:
Mana Regen: 341
With Mark of the Wild and my [Nightstaff of the Everliving] (the enchant is 30 intellect) on. With my [Gavel of Pure Light] (and +81 healing) and [Windcaller's Orb], it would be:
Mana Regen: 321
So really, the Nightstaff is better, and would be even better had I enchanted it with healing, but lack of materials for that, and now, lack of actually being able to farm well as a resto druid... well. It probably won't get done. Besides. I worked hard for those two exalted items...
