With the Dreamgrove Beta Key Giveaway concluded, many players called for a comprehensive summary of the quiz, including in-depth statistics and a clear analysis of the results.
This is what I wanted to say, but to be honest, I am drowning in the “@Slippykins quiz score WHEN???” pings. Maybe we can get Warden to do that, in pursuit of efficiency.
Regardless, here’s the results summary for the Dreamgrove Giveaway quiz!
Hey all, we are back with another Episode of Moonkin Monthly. We go over the latest Balance changes on the beta with our first guest Davidq of Vodkaz (Zul’jin-US)
Celestial Alignment (Changed): Increases the damage of all your spells by 20% and granting you 15% Haste for 20 sec.
Eclipse (New): Lunar Strike has a 20% chance to grant you Solar Empowerment.
In this episode of CatChat, we go over the current state of Feral on the beta with our first guest! Night of HC (Burning Legion-US)
We discuss (and rant a bit) about the current state of changes, just how much we dislike the GCD change with regards to Tigers Fury, our opinion of Tigers Dash, and much more in the second ever episode of Cat Chat.
This is a mirror of the post I made on the Beta Class Forums. I’ve saved a record of it here in its entirety for posterity when the forums are closed. Feel free to follow along while the thread is open here.
Hi everyone, I want to talk about talents today. For the most part, Guardian talents are in a pretty good spot. But there are some problematic rows that didn’t play out well in Legion and I’d like to address those here, as well as offer some potential solutions to fix them.
Ferals! We have decided to totally rip off the boomkins create an ongoing, probably monthly, chat between Me [Guiltyas], Xanzara and possibly various guests for the Dreamgrove.gg site.
We intend to cover a wide array of feral-related topics and hopefully create good discussion/share our thoughts on any relevant feral news. This is our first episode, where we discuss the 7.3 changes to feral and our thoughts on them, what was good and what was less good.
The Memekin Begins Using Starfall as the single target spender was first experimented with after the 7.1.5 changes that significantly buffed Starfall, taking Boomkin from one of the worst sustained AOE specs in the game to one of the best. It went under the name “Memekin” because it utilized talents that up until that patch had been completely useless. At the time the single target Starfall build was still significantly behind the standard Starsurge build on most encounters but due to the extremely high movement on Helya the Starfall build managed to pull ahead.
New Moon, Half Moon and Full Moon, the Moon spells, the artifact ability or my personal preference: Moon Moon, has been a core part of the Legion Balance Druid rotation. Not only does it provide a significant amount of Astral Power, greatly reducing the amount of unempowered Solar Wraths we have to cast, it also adds an extra button to our otherwise rather boring base rotation of Solar Wrath spam with the occasional Starsurge into Lunar Strike.
With Legion drawing to an end I figured it would be a good time to go over what I think has worked well for Balance Druid during the expansion. While it is unavoidable to not also touch on some aspects that I disliked, I will try to keep the focus primarily on the positives and how some of them might be incorporated into the Battle for Azeroth Balance Druid.

Let’s talk about Guardian Druid. While I don’t think anyone would argue that Guardian wasn’t the king of Legion raid tanking, nobody would argue against it being the most dull either.
Hey all, we have decided to create an ongoing series for the Dreamgrove.gg website. The concept of this series is to give more insight into Balance as a whole for that month. Our hope and goals for this series is to create an long term discussion for Balance as a community. This is the introduction to the series, which happens to be a Legion recap. Hope you all enjoy!
