View Full Forums : Good times for h00tkins ahead

08-31-2008, 02:15 PM
Hello h00ts,

I has good news. My guild's main raid leader, who knows the game inside and out, has made a very firm prediction (and provided evidence to back it up) that Moonkin will be the single most important dps class to have in a raid in WotLK - he has basically said that will need to have at least 1 moonkin in it.

What with Starfall and a host of other really cool new h00t talents, it looks like there are going to be a lot more feathery druids about soon :>

i could be convinced to spec oomkin.

resto i dont want to ever be again having been forced to be resto rep bc when i did the 40 man raids.

i'll certainly be looking to put together some oomkin gear whilst levelling towards 80 and may give it a try as a levelling spec in WotLK ?

we've had the same oomkin with us 3 times recently in heroics and despite mainly having blues with the odd purple and a green or 2 he can seemingly keep up with much better epic geared people !

I'm completely guessing... BUT!!!! if I were to hazard a guess.... Boomkin will share itemization with druid healers.... Soo.... in theory you could get a jump start by stacking healing gear... however I'm not sure where their spell crit will come from unless lifebloom and other HoTs will crit now too....

I'm pretty much set as a feral with possible dabblings into resto, but christ Starfall makes me want to respec boomkin (even though I'm pretty anti-caster).

I just remember WC3 and having the Priestess of the Moon drop Starfall hell on armies and it was awesome. :O~

well all this oomkin talk got me looking at what gear i've got that i could use for a quick respec to oomkin for a week !

not a lot is the answer !

i can get o +400 damage :( although a few items need gems so i can increase that a bit.

i'm also down on spirit which i assume is needed for oomkin?

quick question as can't see a thread or link there a good site for trainee oomkins along with basic info on talent build ?

I know there are a couple of nice blogs, let me look around.

Here, Phaelia has a nice list on her blogroll site...

I never looked specifically for +spirit stuff as a moonkin, I would just focus on +intel as that also gives you +damage.

If you're looking to switch to moonkin for solo quests and stuff, remember that you have your innervate that restores your mana over time (though its a six min cooldown). I never had mana issues leveling back then. I think I would pull with starfire, root, insect swarm and moonfirex1 wrath until dead. That gave me at least 6-7 kills before I needed to innervate or drink..

Raiding moonkin have more mana issues just to the duration of boss fights, so ask to group with shadow priests if possible (they wont mind due to the +crit you'll bring the group)

Priest mp5, spirit trinkets alway help if you're damage is good enough

hope that helps (I think I went a bit off topic, sorry) :-)
