Is Glyph of Barskin useful as a bear tank?

5 posts in this topic

hey guys,

thanks again for the help with my balance druid question. Ive recently gotten started as a bear tank and I dont see Glyph of Barkskin (wow! cool feature with the links) mentioned in the guide.

this looks like a very important glyph to me, so why is it not mentioned?

cheers!

From what I remember, tanks are naturally crit-mitigated on raid bosses as baseline. It's something like a 6% chance to be crit by a lvl ?? boss, and all tanks have the mitigation for that as baseline - your chance to be critted by a boss (as a tank) is zero. This may well be why there is no mention of it in the guide.

That glyph is more of a PvP glyph because, as Stoove mentioned, you area already crit-evasion capped as a bear for raid bosses.

      [US-Trollbane][H]<Penance Reborn>All Roles
       
      Our goal is Full clearing heroics and pushing into mythics to make rank on our realm!
      Tuesdays and Thursdays 8pm est to 11pm est.
       
      We are recruiting the following:
      All roles
       
      What We Expect Out of Our Recruits:
      First, we expect our recruits to know their class fairly well. They should also have a good grasp of the encounters. Knowledge is power as the saying goes.
      Second, we expect almost perfect attendance and punctuality from our recruits. Recruits can miss 1-2 days out of the month. They shouldn't be late though, we strive to start raid at 8:00 on the dot.
      Third, we expect our recruits to be able to take criticism without making a fuss. We won't ever attack recruits for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders.
      Finally, our guild/raid chat can get spicy sometimes, its very adult oriented, we expect our recruits to be able to handle our conversations and not become offended.
      *We expect all our raiders to be on our realm in our guild to get priority looting.
       
      Addons we require:
      RClootcouncil
      Vent
      DBM
      Exorsus Raid Tools

      I'm totally ecstatic for the progression potential of mythic 5mans in Legion, and want to master the changes to prep. So I ran some Mythic dungeons tonight and would be eternally grateful for any advice from any of the experts out there :)
      Here are my logs:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/wCfk4zX8m3AZJP7g/
      And Armory, definitely not fully geared, but pretty decent for mythic dungeons: 
      http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Ziltana/advanced
      Overall, how are my numbers looking? Decent for this gear and content? 
       
      Some specific things:
      Am I casting Regrowth too much? It feels much more important now with the mastery stacking, but I'm not sure if it's worth the mana especially once fights start getting longer.
      I also feel like I'm replacing HoTs a little too early. Should I basically be aiming to recast Hots as late as possible, or is it more important to keep their durations high at the cost of efficiency?
      And lastly, should I worry about my overhealing? If so, what can I do to try and lessen it while maintaining hps?

      Hey, 
      I read the feral guide of Pawketsz as well as the guardian guide of Noawh. Pawketsz mentioned, that it would be beneficial to use a spellpower weapon, while beeing a moonkin as a feral druid. 
      Naowh doesn't mentioned that in the guardian guide. So I was wondering, if it really would be beneficial to use a caster weapon.
       
      Therefore I made some assumptions:
      Guardian and Feral "Balance Affinity" Talents behave similiar (-> Test as Guardian) Spellpower weapon means caster weapon (since there is no more spellpower in the game) Only wear the staff while testing - nothing else Cast 50 times Solar Wrath, which comes with the affinity and does not have any other effects, then direct damage In fact I had only a 710 caster staff, while having multiple agi staves, but none with item level 710. So I decided to test it with a 700 agi staff and a 735 agi staff and then use linear interpolation to get an estimated value for 710. 
      Test results Main Value Item Level Average Damage Agility 700 5.3k Agility 735 6k Intellect 710 4.4k   
      In fact there was no need to linear interpolate the agility results, because the intellect's average damage was below the agility results.
       
      So does the "Balance Affinity" Talent works different for feral druids? Did I oversee something?

      I don't really like my class changes to my mains. I've decided that I am going to do a last minute re roll as a caster / rdps and get into the raiding scene in Legion. I initially thought about a hunter or a mage, but there are already a million of those out there, which means it may be harder to get into a guild as a hunter or a mage because most guilds likely already have a few on there raid teams. After a little bit of reading about Legion class changes and looking at a few different class/spec rotations on Icy Veins, the balance druid started to peak my interest. Which brings me to my question: Are balance druids (boomkins) good in raiding? Are they sought after (are guilds always recruiting them)? Or are there a million of them so there will never be openings for that class in most guilds. Basically are they a viable raiding spec. What is their role in a raid? Are they a pretty simple class to learn or is there a high learning curve? 
      Anyone who has raided around balance/boomkin druids or even has or does raid as one, could you please give me some info. Thank you!
