Daily Crusade

30 06 2009

Well, if you’ve been doing any work to save up gold than you have more than likely been doing the dailies that take place at the Argent Tournament Grounds. Blizzard figured that they needed one spot to group their dailies [much like Shattarath and the likes] And they decided that Icecrown would be the perfect location to host their island of dailies. But a lot of folks still aren’t able to do them in a timely manner due to a couple of things. First and for most most folks have trouble fighting the champions in the ring. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen the words “Perhaps you are not ready” while fighting in the ring, which leaves me to wonder if its Lag or if folks really don’t know how to do it. If its lag I can completely understand, because of the weird way these mounts / vehicles work, I’ll get massive lag spikes that have me off position so I can’t charge / shield break the enemy but they can constantly charge me.

What to do with all those flowers?

Wordpress, Now Feature A WoW UI

Well, if you’re anything like the rest of us, and you started on all those quest for the Midsummer Fire Festival, than you have collected a large assortment of flowers, and you’re really not sure quite what to do with them. If you started on Sunday Night, and managed to get all the Bonfires in Azeroth before the Reset, you could very well be looking at having a 1100 flowers to plow through just from Bonfires alone, this doesn’t include the 100 extra that you could get from doing the quest involved in stealing the flame from the Horde cities, and the close to 200 you could get from doing dailies, and all the other quest that are involved with the MidSummer Fire Festival so far. All in all you are looking at so many flowers that it might just make your head spin. And this really begs the question of “What in the world do I do with these flowers?”

Solo Ahune

26 06 2009

About 3 post back, when the whole “Mid Summer Fire Festival” thing started, I said that I would take a shot at actually solo’ing Ahune, this is so you guys out there can get the achievement and not worry about having to find a group to do it in. I assumed it would be easy to do given the whole nature of the Druid class, and in addition to that we can nearly solo every opening Northrend Instance that is out there. I should note that while I wasn’t able to get Ahune down in a single surfacing, that it was a pretty easy fight overall, and for most druids this shouldn’t be anything to worry about. Thanks to our “Leader of the Pack” and “Savage Defence” ability with bear form, this is a pretty easy fight. I would note that while I don’t advice it in resto [that would take forever], that doing it in Feral as DPS spec was easy enough.

I know I'm a clicker =(

New Idol with the 3.2 Patch for Resto

26 06 2009

There are several idols for Druids out there, and most are aimed at 3 of our 4 possible job rolls [there are 3 trinkets, 1 for each level (ie 7.0, 7.5, 8.5… 8.0 went missing as it needed to cry). The newest set appears to be coming out with the tier 9 gear and may or may not be part of the Colosseum [It looks like it was data mined, and not found on the PTR yet, so I’m not sure where it is actually at]

[The Idol of Flaring Growth]

The idol is interesting for several reasons, the first of course that it seems that Blizzard would like to make it quite clear what direction they are pointing us. Somewhere like this:

This is your new bar, and you'll like it

Healing in Ulduar

25 06 2009

I see a lot of guides on line about how to tank, or how to DPS a boss in Ulduar, and while this helpful for the DPS and tank, it doesn’t do much to let you know about the kind of damage that you can expect from a boss. I also have a lot of druids that I’ve seen ask for what the approximate level of spellpower you need before you can step into an instance.

The following is a start of a series to provide a handy guide to both, and hopefully someone will take interest and I can answer some questions for druids out there.
