Dreamgrove Beta Key Giveaway -- Results Summary

in
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!

BFA Guardian - Talents Feedback

in Guardian Guardian
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.

The Best of Legion Boomkin: Part 3, Starfall Single Target

in Balance Balance
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.

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.

The Best of Legion Boomkin: Part 2, Moon Moon & Radiant Moonlight

in Balance Balance
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.

The Best of Legion Boomkin: Part 1, The Emerald Dreamcatcher

in Balance Balance
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.

BFA Guardian - Gameplay Issues

in Guardian Guardian
This is a mirror of the post I made on the Alpha Class Development 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. 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.
