View Full Forums : Feral to Balance swap

05-10-2007, 10:21 AM
I guess the topic says it all. What would I need to do to swap between Feral and Balance? I've pretty much got some of the best tanking stuff in the game. However I'm interesting in doing better in arenas. I find feral just doesn't cut it. I'm curious what gear and specs I should be looking at in a balance lay out? Pretend I know nothing... I honestly don't know anything about playing a Balance druid.

Balance really doesn't cut it any better than feral in the arenas. Resto's not much better either.

Ah so as per pre BC, we are pretty much weak sauce in PVP... I guess its time to level my mage up to 70.... get off my lazy butt.

Just as druids said from the beginning, we were very powerful leveling from 60-70. But once the leveling game is over and the gearing game starts, we fall rapidly behind the other classes - once again (feral at least, I can't speak for other builds). But our biggest problem in the arenas appears to be the min/max mentality, and however you look at it teams at the top are better served bringing a pally or priest over a resto druid, and just about any class over a feral or balance druid.

I hate to admit it but Druids probably have the hardest time in the arena. Not saying were doomed but we're going to have to work that much harder to be as effective as some of the other classes.

That being said Swiftmend Resto Druids seem to be best off for Arena. However Balance might only be useful for 5v5 imo.
