View Full Forums : You are a bear. Roar.

As a druid, you aren’t really better or worse than a protection warrior, just different. Warriors are highly skilled soldiers with years of training. You are a large bear. Warriors use precise weapon strikes to hold the attention of enemies. You are a large bear. Warriors posses magical weapons and armor. You are a large bear. Roar.

Want to know know more? Avearis was kind enough to copy over a couple old posts created by Tyral a long time ago (3 weeks long time in online market, right? Okay, maybe it's older than 3 weeks). There are two posts in total. First one details the basics of being a Bear ( while the second one details the cat form ( (same thread).

A bit of warning for you veterans: these posts are designed for the newly feralers. You might get some value out of them (if you're a real newb) but they are targeted to our newer, younger druid brethren.

Shouldn't this be in the new "Seedlings forum"?

This tis the news posting (it shows on the front page). I have moved the original post to the Seedlings forum.

OK. I didn't catch that. I never see the front page. I use the direct link to which shows new posts only.

Actually, Tyral only wrote the original tanking piece and I amended it. The cat DPS post is entirely my own.

I'll work on recreating the links since they didn't copy over.

OK, so I am 69 ATM- have most of the 70 wowikki druid guide for basic tanking items in the bank. I would like to start tanking normal instances- I have not ran any thus far. SO my question is this- mixing and matching gear- I have about 11.5k health, 16.5-17k armor, dodge is just above 20, and depending on gear defense rating is at about 356. I know the defense is low but with the 2 additional clefthoof pieces sitting in the bank that should come close to the 415 defense rating required; figured I would gem the remaining as required. I know that reputation is everything in so far as getting invited to groups and didn't want to run anything until I was well prepared. so with the stats listed above should I start tanking or wait?

Nevermind-tanked all but one quest(fire lord) in SMV and had no toruble- got a guild invite following
