I feel the same about hotw/doc.
After playing a lot of wargames, I definitely still prefer HotW over DoC. DoC just feels too clunky, and heart gives that amazing life-saving utility that can completely change a game. I feel the loss of damage reduction, but the gain in resil + getting cenarion ward is at least something to help make up for it.
My complaint so far is that I actually do the worst damage right now. I know that everyone is doing reduced damage because of the resil increase, but even relative to other classes I am finding that I am the lowest damage dealt in almost all arena matches that I have played. To be fair, a lot of my arenas played so far in 5.4 have been against a dk or warrior team (or both) that trained me for most of the game, but that probably won't be different with live queues.
I have about 25% crit with the 5273 haste breakpoint and I feel like I am never getting any procs, and even when I do they don't hit hard enough to matter. Are other moonkins having this problem right now? I know gear scaling will help us a lot, but gear scaling is going to improve damage across the board for every other class too and right now it feels like we are near the bottom of the totem pole. Last week I felt like I had enough damage to solo an enemy team, and now it feels like I can't provide enough damage to get a kill even with another dps going all out on the same target.
Also, what do you guys think about glyph of guided stars vs glyph of omens? I'm pretty locked in to barskin/cyclone but I'm not sure how i feel about the 3rd. I feel like omens is pointless, but I'm not really sure that guided stars is any better if I'm dotting multiple targets.
I have a lot of procs tho. But they do hit small, starsurge can HIT as low as 20k without eclipse, thats laughable. In an 1v1 situation it's really difficult to bring a warrior from 20% to 0%, they heal more than we damage.
I can't say anything about guided stars. I was already thinking of Fae silence instaed of that if there's a caster. Or nature's grasp, but i love treants too much and with them its just pointless.
I'd love to see what others think as the 3rd glyph after cyclone/barkskin, i have no idea what to pick yet, there arent a lot of options, and none of them seems so awesome for me.
