That leaves me in a situation where I have like 2 or 3 seconds left to cast something with the extra haste from sotf, but the warrior still has 2 interrupts, shockwave, stormbolt and charge to prevent me from casting.

You're not doing anything extremely wrong, and yeah you're right about good players watching for sotf buff.  You know what that means though?  If they ARE watching for your sotf buff to interfere with landing cyclones....and you aren't keeping track of when you'll be able to get a sotf clone off (when stormbolt is on CD, not being in range of shockwave/pummel/disrupting shout) then they deserve to win that exchange.  They are doing something extra that you are not doing.

I find it more reliable to bait out the reflects with a normal cast time cyclone.  Unless I know my opponent is capable of reflecting/rupting the .7s clone, I'd rather just get the reflects out of the way early when I'm not under pressure to heal then my next sotf clone cast is more reliable since I don't have to worry about the reflects.  Situationally dependent of course.

I've watched a little bit of pojke's stream when I started focusing on how to best use sotf (had taken tree form more during the beginning of the season).  The play is so different, I have always played rdruid really offensively but that positioning puts you in danger of eating all the instant CC that is currently in the (meta)game and then falling behind.  Pojke on the other hand, from what I've watched plays more defensively, uses sotf for regrowth when a cyclone cast isn't a high probability.  If you think about it, it saves globals doing this, you're not wasting time or wasting the buff.  I'm not 100% sold on that method being better, but it is easier and teaches a good overall lesson.  If you can't get the clone cast off effectively at that moment, just use sotf for healing and keep going.

I don't typically use heart when say...a warrior pops his CDs.  I will if I feel like I need to but I don't like to feel like I HAVE to use it every time some CDs are burnt.  Depends on the comps and the moment and what other CDs your team has up.  Always save skin/ward for the first set of DPS cds, and usually the person getting trained can help mitigate some of the damage too.

I know guys like Mes are playing Scleave with rediculous W/L ratios so I am sure we are doing something wrong.  I am currently playing with a HPal healer which may be part of the problem. Please help!

Uh ya...you are doing some stuff wrong, here ya go.  Mes is not playing scleave....not rly doing 3s at all since the first few weeks.  You spelled ridiculous wrong.  Shaman better than hpal in that comp.  gl!

Scleave (sham or rdruid)

ew yuck I would definitely take rdruid scleave out of T1 and drop it way down.  rdruid + warlock with anything other than a mage or maybe ele is pretty garbage if you ask me

Yeah...I want to say the same thing to my DK friends -_-

Its a legit question.  But if you check the ladder over there, or better yet play on ladder over there (thank you friends teaching english), you'll see its a different world.

So you're implying you're playing over there or am I misunderstanding?  If you're playing there...what's the deal with their ladder?  The ratings are a lot lower than US/EU?  Did their season start later?  What comps are DKs playing?

After looking at EU ladder it looks like they have a decent number of DKs on page 1 of 3v3 also.  I guess it could just be that no good DKs are playing on US right now.
