Looking for Guidance

6 posts in this topic

Are there any guides to the druid at various lower levels I seem to only find things covering 85-90. If you can point me to some of them it would be very helpful. Currently at lvl 30 and just want to make sure I'm getting things right before I get to far along.

Main reason for asking is that while my range/cast abilities seem good, I seem to struggle when enemies are right on top of me.

First off, Grumbachr, welcome to the Icy Veins forums!

I'd like to say that, at level 30, you're probably not doing anything wrong simply because you do not have enough abilities for a "wrong" rotation of sorts.

Depending on the spec you chose at 10 depends on how your combat will typically go. If you've selected Balance then you will have more advantage with your ranged abilities that come with the spec. If you've selected Feral (Cat) or Guardian (Bear) then your combat will be in melee range.

If you are balance and find yourself in melee combat I would recommend simple things such as starting the fight off with spell_nature_stranglevines.jpgEntangling Roots and throw your first DoT at maximum range. This will give you a little bit more time to cast and not suffer a push back on your casts.

As far as specific guides go for lower levels, I do not know of any as of this point. I do know that Icy Veins is working on such guides, however. For now they simply recommend Feral or Balance as your leveling spec and not much more.

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask. I'm sure someone else, if not myself, will be able to lend more help if you should need it.

Again, welcome to Icy Veins!

Thanks Sajakain that does help.

I've been using Icy-veins to fix my Pally, he was so awful (beyond awful). I figured out I somehow managed to get him to Lvl90/iLvl 470+ and i didn't understand the basics. Using this site I made some vast improvements to the pally almost doubled my DPS output.

I'm just hoping to not make the same mistakes with the Druid as I did with the pally. I'll give Feral a try and see if the malee has more familiar play style.

I'd also love to see some lower level guides as I have other toon i plan on leveling up and help at lower levels would always be welcome.

What spec are you? Balance, Feral, Gaurdian, or Resto? If your're Feral I can help you a lot.

      So I need some help to improve my dps! I just started playing wow again after a year break and hoped right back into raiding! My gear is farely decent since we have been farming heroic HFC however we are starting mythic progression and my dps isnt up to par! I relaize i am still missing some key trinkets as well as the leg ring! Do these really make such a gap in dps? Looking for any tips and advice you can provide. Logs are below!

      Here is my Simple Armoury view.  In this particular instance, I am not using a specific rotation I guess (I'm also weak on the jargon). I have no logs to share at this time.
      I am getting stuck on Waves 5/6 because of the Mystic heals.  I have been searching Google for days now trying to find something that is not Hunter videos or DK/Frost Mage recommendations to help me solve this problem.  It is VERY frustrating that the whole bleeding Internet can't come up with good advice on this.
      I am indeed using Solar Beam, but apparently I am doing so at the wrong time, not knowing when the right time might be.  My Typhoon seems to have no effect.
      I did get past a Wave 2 hump due to another Druid suggesting some Haste enchants and a Tier 7 Talent adjustment, but even with those and the Yak Broth buff, I'm only getting to Wave 6 maybe 1/3 of the time, and then losing at one of those two points because I can't get those Mystics down fast enough.
      All I want to do is have a chance at Hatespark and the Core Hound.
      Please help?

      Hey guys, 
      I've been a boomy for almost all of MoP and I'm at my wits ends trying to figure out why my dps doesn't match my ilvl (as are so many others, i notice).
      I've been following Icyveins for a while and been researching a few different stat weights for over a month now and I just can't seem to raise my sustained dps above 180-190k. I can burst our best dps out of the water at the start of each pull (around 600k) and then I just watch in horror and my dps drops to something around 180k (depending on boss). 
      I use Elvui, WeakAuras, and AffDots (just got it). I currently raid Normal 10man but my guild has started doing Heroic and my RL has pulled me up saying that i'm not doing the dps that i should be (when simulated). 
      Here is my armory:
      And logs:
      (I have linked Juggs fight, but you can hover over the name of the boss fight and it will show a drop down - check the other logs too if you wish)
      *Click on 'Lovecomplex' and it will show a breakdown of the spells used etc.
      Could it be my talent choice? Would picking up DoC help at all? Am I doing something ridiculously stupid?
