View Full Forums : Icefall Bear AA

10-14-2006, 04:31 PM
AA Description -

This ability summons a bear from the Icefall Glacier to attack your opponent. Additional ranks in this ability further increase the strength of the bear.
While I can understand Nature's Guardian being a black bear graphic, last time I looked in Icefall Glacier the bears weren't black. Was kinda hoping they would have made it a polar bear.

Just my two cp.

Think mine hits max 425? I Like it. Someone in our guild parsed it at 197dps.

Max hit on final version is 575. Yeah you can see the difference.

The following will up the dps of this pet:

Bard aura - 30% overhaste, will land on swarm/AA/Charm pets if you're grouped with the bard.

Mage Aura - 10% dmg mod for pets only, AE effect around the mage's pet. This is what made you're pet hit for 633 seeker, champion will not land on swarm/AA/charm pets (or boo boo for that matter since druids don't have pet buff AA.)

And maybe circle of power, but I'm not sure if pet can crit hit even with this effect on it.

I want a polar bear pet. :(

/agree Naeyene

Would it be so hard to just change the colour to white? =P

12-21-2006, 03:54 PM
Maybe all us druids should just provide /feedback a few times a month until it gets changed. I'm all for having a white polar bear pet!!

It's still black, so little hope there as it's already mid february :sleep:

I have Nature's Guardian level 3 and was really disappointed that it is just a timed animation and not a real "pet". I am hesitant to purchase the Icefall Bear because I think it is the same thing but does more damage.

I believe I understand that you can cast this pet and it will attack the target for a period of time OR till the target dies. Is that correct? If so, what is the refresh timer for it? I would really love to have a good pet, but I don't think this is it.

I don't recall exactly, but maxed teddy has chance to triple for around 575 damage and it lasts what, 1 minute? It does not however, change target. When target dies teddy returns back to you and wont attack mobs even if you have aggro. Yeah that kinda sucks. But teddy is still nice added dps and we have lots of fun in raids when we do a "swarm teddy" with other druids :D

I guess you can make a funny hotbutton to "unleash the bear" for raids. I wish it was an upgraded pet, not uber, just useful. Oh, and white in color.

04-04-2007, 03:10 AM
*shrugs* I guess it could be better, but having a similar pet like shammies would be quite overpowerful I think. Teddy does several thousand damage (if AE or ramp doesnt kill it first) and it's somewhat nice burst dps. 5 druids doing this in raid at the same time adds dps for sure.

People laugh at teddy, druids joke about the AA teddy, but I use it. It's free dps.

There is a way to get the pet to attack multiple mobs, but the situations may be limited:

1) Target the priority mob being tanked by someone else and cast pet.
2) Sit down and wait for another mob to hit you.
3) Hope someone else gets agro on that mob quickly.
4) When the priority mob dies, your pet will start hitting the mob that hit you.

I use this when I am farming, or fighting 3 or more mobs that hit kinda hard and I want to get them down a bit faster. Once they are all on me and I start AEing or whatever, I click bear pet on whatever one I am on, and once the mob dies it just goes on to the next until it disappears. It's just like any other aggro pet in that respect.

Beat this! :D
