My guild is currently recruiting ranged DPS and a healer for 25-man progression! We are a semi-hardcore guild that raids Wed./Thurs./Sun. from 8-11 EST on Elune-US. We are currently 1/13H and we are serious about progression, but we know how to have fun along the way! Realm/Faction transfers are half off this week, so if you are looking for a friendly, active guild to call home please apply in our forums at undyingresolution.com!
I have updated my Resto Druid Gear Guide for 5.2 and have included boss drops in the new Throne of Thunder raid and the new world boss Oondasta. Take a look!
A fairly large 5.2 PTR build just dropped with a complete list of weapon options. I’ve been using Wowhead’s comparison tool to calculate which weapons will be BiS for Resto Druids. I’ve tinkered a bit with the stat weightings and made them as realistic as possible.
The picture above lists our available 1-hand Spirit options (these are 522 ilvl which are Normal-mode versions). In the Throne of Thunder we will have 2 Mace options, 1 Dagger, and for the first time in QUITE a while, a FIST weapon (hooray!).
*Be aware there is a non-Spirit Dagger that is available, but the tooltip for the Normal version is not accurate to the stats of the Heroic and Raid Finder versions. I’ll have to research this at a later date.
The stat weightings I used were:
Haste (pre-3043 BP)- 80
As you can see Torall, Rod of the Shattered Throne comes out ahead of our other options which are actually all quite even in stat allocation. It has significantly more Intellect while our other options have more secondary stats.
Personally, I think the Fist weapon has the best-looking model with Torall coming in second. The lightning they emit would look great with our T11 gear if you have a set laying around. I’m not really thrilled about the other 2 models.
One of my favorite things to do in WoW when I’m not raiding is Pet Battles. I have literally become obsessed with them. The “Gotta catch’em all!” concept is really strong with me as I usually won’t leave a particular area until every single pet (that is obtainable through battling) is caught. Today I want to go over some basic info, some cool Pet Battle Addons, and some of my favorite pets to battle with. Continue reading
