Hello, have any of you broccolis out there been playing some PTR lately? I'm just wondering cuz I havent played it myselfe and I havent heard alot of talk about resto druids in 5.2.

How are we looking for the upcoming patch? Any special comps that stands out for us as the superior one?

Personally I wanna see MLD be good again as it's by far my favorite comp to play.

My friend was playing MLD and it looked pretty good, they beat hydra/braindeadly playing thug so it must be somewhat strong

honestly I think the nerf to displacer beast is pretty crippling. i'd happily trade a second off cyclone or a nerf to that mush room thing for a buff to displacer

how is it a nerf exactly? if the point of the spell is to escape melee that are cleaving on top of you its a buff, presuming the melee used their gap closers to get to you in the first place. my druid cant wait to get a free sprint on top of the leap, at the expense of the free pounce every 30 seconds

My personal opinion about why PHD/ATC/Beastcleave are not being that succesful on Tournaments is that in many cases it relies on the enemy making an error...In a sense, that makes them the underdog...Hunter's have never really been that OP. People just have the image that hunters should be something to be stomped over

It was OP cause it dropped target meaning you could dummy people for 1-2 seconds as to where you were. Also, the stealth component means that you can't pounce>clone anymore which was pretty huge. Both are worth more credit than you're giving them I think

It's definitely a nerf, but giving us the sprint was pretty nice, meaning (as you rightfully said) you can kite round pillars better after the displacer.

I've played on ptr rather extensively, and at the moment, resto druids are absolutely crippled by monks due to ring of peace preventing almost all abilities,including shifting. Outside of that however, the class is looking quite good. I feel that people haven't really explored the power of mushrooms either. Fully stacked from rejuv, which takes no more than a minute, is around a 600k heal.

Isn't it bugged? or did they fix it

I don't understand why Ring of Peace behaves like this. The tooltip reads "silence and disarm" which is fine, but preventing all escape mechanisms, cc's, and defensive cooldowns is absolutely stupid.

No. It caps at you max health in addition to regular healing. So roughly 600k is what will go live. The biggest problem is globals

^This,

Target dropping and ability to go offensive with pounce into clone is underestimated.  When I need to "speed up" to get away, I feel like sprint and stampede are usually up.

I can't even guess how many times I displacer when silenced to avoid a swap burst from spell cleaves.

rdruids will be a more viable target than pre-5.2 that's for sure.


On Topic:

I'm sick of resto baby heals and going boomer for my +25% hybrid healing.

problem w mushrooms is the same problem with efflouresence

its a fucking circle on the ground. efflouresnce was HUGE last season but was so hard to utilize because it forces your team to reposition.

i've always thought efflouresence should follow the target you swiftmend on. if mushrooms would do the same thing i would be so d

600k heal on a person would be retarded. The way it is now, for the amount it heals for, has the proper advantages and disadvantages.

Efflorescence was annoying because it was a HoT on the ground, this is a burst heal on the ground.

Just put it on a pillar or your locks portal and pop it when you need a big chunky ns-type heal.


edit: plus mushrooms have the awesome thing of being able to wild charge to them, it'd actually be annoying as fuck if they 'stuck' or followed people. I like leaping up z axis or leaping to LoS with them.

yea wild charge and 3 mushrooms around the map for 5min is pretty nice 15sec defensive onto a potential mushroom bloom. Displacer beast utility will be missed. Get your wildcharge macros working prepatch imo, sounds viable

This one works perfectly for me:

#showtooltip Wild Charge
/target Wild Mushroom
/stopmacro [noexists]
/target=target
/stopmacro [noexists, harm]
/cancelform
/cast Wild Charge
/targetlasttarget
