View Full Forums : Some not so quick questions

I have always been intrigued by the Druid class in WoW. I started one some time ago and took my time playing him and grew to love the class. One of my favorite things to do in games in PvP, so I took the big guy to the WSG BG. Now I realize this is only level 19 and perhaps this is part of my problem. But boy I just got stomped. I found myself only able to run around root people and pop off heals where I could but with both having such slow casting times I was toast fairly quickly a lot of the time.

I check my server rankings and sure enough there are 2 level 60 druids in the top 5 for HK's.

So here is the question part. Am I missing something? Am I just too low level? Is there a secret ingredient for druids in PvP? Balance? Feral? Resto?

I appreciate any helpful responses even if they say go read so and so's post.

Thank you for your time.

Here goes,

Chances are you were dealing with some serious twinks in the lvl 19 bracket. At lvl 19 all you have is Bear >.< and unless you have some nice twink gear you're going to get stomped on.....a lot.

I pvp'd heavily for a while and hit rank 12. I was NEVER that high for HKs b/c I was busy running the flag, or stealth capping a node in AV or AB.

Since that time I have re-geared and re-spec'd to resto. Now I play full time heal support ( and healing a fury warrior that just mows through people lends to a ton of HKs ). In PUGs, if you heal you'll be loved and protected. In performed groups you'll have decided roles ahead of time.

PvP for druids becomes much more viable in the 30 - 39 backet since we get our travel form and can outrun everyon =D. Before that it is really rough.

In the end though, HKs mean nothing. It's the wins and how you play as a team that will get people respecting your abilities. A good team player is 100x better than an amazing go it aloner.

the lvl 10-19 and especially the lvl 20-29 are all about the twinks. and now with cross-realms, this is doubly extra so. and not just normally twinked, they will be twinked for nothing but WSG. heck, a lot of these guys will even have the arena master trinket, which lets face it, no one 29 or under can realistically get without a guild backing them up.

Twinks make you cry.. I did WSG at level 15 once...and never set foot into a BG until level 49 (which I stayed for about 2-3weeks) doing mainly AB.
