Predatory Strikes: This talent now also causes the druid's finishing moves to provide a 7/13/20% chance per combo point to make the next Nature spell with a cast time below 10 seconds instant cast.

What non-instant nature spell might a kitty be casting these days?

I know I was never much of a kitty DPSer, but the only spell I ever cast was "Rebirth" which I don't think is considered "Nature".

I reckon finishing your opponent in pvp by casting instant starfire would add insult to injury :) is that classed as nature?

but probably cyclone, roots and heals is what they are aiming for

Well originally I was assuming stuff in the Resto tree was not considered "Nature", but now I think that assumption was wrong.

yea, cyclone, or even better, regrowth to make pallies, rogues, warriors, and DK's cry

i LOVE it! it works pretty well in BG's so far... I'm looking forward to more survivability in arena, too.

/happydance

edit: i actually got to use it for regrowth a couple times in Vault10 and Ony10 last night.
yea, i shouldn't have been standing in the fire, i know i know... but it makes all the difference in the world when healers say that they won't heal you if you're standing in the fire.

Oh, and yea... Starfire is arcane... that would be sweet though

Thottbot is idiotic and i won't go there anymore. They're classifying all Nature school spells as "Restoration"

if it's resto, it's in the Nature school.

I was using the "old school" mentality when healing was...healing, and nature refered to nature damage.

I haven't played around with this, but does it work on both balance and resto spells?

Wrath, Entangling Roots, Hibernate, and Cyclone are all in the Nature school, and these are affected by the new talent.

Most Balance damage spells are in the Arcane school like Moonfire and Starfire.
