Hey guys, this is Mithrill, level 48 (49 by the end of the night) Nelf Druid from the Lightbringer server. I just wanted to thank you guys for the fun podcasts you put up every week! I just started playing wow 2 months ago and had been listening to tons of podcasts to catch up on the wow culture, but most of those got pretty boring pretty fast. Your podcast remains a weekly treat for me as you guys clearly put so much focus on the FUN in playing, and it comes through loud and clear with your playful ribbing of each other over in-game events, and the pleasant laughter that ensues =)
Keep up the good work!
High Five from canada, may Elune light your way always, Mith.

Hey El and Sal,

Awesome podcast, you do a great job of keeping it interesting and fun.

Sal had asked about respecc'ing to Feral for leveling. Do it!! Feral is a very good spec for killing things fast. Mangle (41 point talent) rocks! Don't worry about the healing skill you will pick it back up fast and may just decide to stay Feral for tanking.

Keep up the great work!

I agree with the above poster, feral is just much faster for leveling. There is little downtime (even less than a rogue due to not needing bandages) and the damage you do is great. Dire Bear is wonderful to deal with adds, also.

However, the balance tree isn't too shabby either. There is much more downtime due to stopping to drink a lot (similar to a mage) but the damage is quite good. Plus, as balance, you have the mana pool to heal anyway, it's only a matter of (maybe) replacing certain items for +healing items. Then, if budget allows, carry around a "feral" set for solo grinding. It won't be quite as powerful as a feral spec druid, but it's still useful.

Leveling resto isn't really that important, according to the tree. It mostly cuts down on casting times and threat generation and things like that. You can heal perfectly fine without being full resto (my druid is only 43, so take any 50+ stuff that I haven't done with my druid into consideration) and since there's almost always a lack of healers, you can get the practice that way.

In reality, you can't go wrong with any tree. Druids are great. :)

Hello,
This is Waisup a 70 shadow priest on Farstriders server. I enjoy your podcast. Just wanted to shair the macro I use for the Kara Moroes fight.

/stopcasting
/clearfocus [modifier:shift]
/clearfocus [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,noexists]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]
/cast [target=focus] Shackle Undead

Just pick the target you are given. start a cast from out of range to set the focus (or just do it on the fly) if you pick the wrong target just hold shift and recast to clear the focus and set a new one. once set as long as you are in range. you will never have to worry about where your target is just click and reshackel.

I highly suggest you go where test this out like darkshire where there are some low level to test it on, untill you see you it works and can change your target without to much effort.

Good Luck in Kara, and love the show. Keep it up.

Waisup.
