Cat Nap #7 – Final Boss TV Talks Guardian Druids

While I have been predominately in a DPS roll as of lately, I still tank from time and time and try to stay up to date on all things Guardian. As such, Final Boss TV episode 33 will feature Guardian Druids Arielle and Buraan from The Inconspicuous Bear. The episode will air on March 16 at Final Boss TV and I have some questions I have sent into the show for them to discuss.

Final Boss also did a Feral Druid episode. I sent in some questions and you can view the episode on YouTube. Most of my questions were answered in the after show.

Unfortunately my questions were not directly answered. However they were used to build the show notes and are answered during the main show and after show. I Tweeted @FinalBossTV and they explained what happened and all is good.

Final Boss TV’s reply to my question on Twitter.

1. How much utility would you like to be able to cast in form e.g Tranquility in Bear Form?

2. Suggestions to smooth our rage generation? Currently it’s tied to crit and very spikey. Poor generation at low gear levels, crit capping at high gear levels. Soul of the Forest helps with this now but are there any changes you would like to see for “smoother” generation?

3. Button bloat – I feel that Bear Hug is “useless” and unnecessary. Thoughts on this spell and any others that may contribute to button bloat / spells that could be removed e.g. Innervate.

4. Thoughts on Symbiosis? I found that Bone Shield was probably the best defensive CD. The Monks dodge one felt like it made no difference. Consecration was good for adds and DPS and we all know lightning shield was the best passive dps increase. Suggestions to make it more appealing to Guardians? Should Guardians receive a defensive CD from all classes? Evasion would have been better than Feint, especially given its rage cost from Rogues for example.

5. Are there any abilities you would like to see baseline? I would like the Glyph of Stampeding Roar baseline – It seems stupid that a raid wide CD has such a short default range and that we have to use a glyph for it to be effective. Combining this glyph with the spell to be baseline (probably Feral and Guardian only) would free up a glyph slot for more interesting choices.

6. New mastery. Thoughts on what we might see? Something that interacts with Maul or something that scales / interacts with SD or FR? Additionally, do you think that the Tooth and Claw proc will stay in or be removed?

If you have questions you can submit questions through their website or email questions to them at

Hope you are feeling refreshed after our Cat Nap.



Cat Nap #3 – Waffle bites with Jarre

Hey everyone. Sorry for the lack of content as of late, I’ve had a busy schedule. However it appears that I am not the only one. There hasn’t been much content from anyone over the last month.

Just letting Druids out there that a fellow blogged named Jarre from Rank 4 Healing Touch was recently featured in a Team Waffle Cast, mini cast called Waffle bites. Jarre and Arielle have a small discussion on resto specific changes coming in patch 5.4 (Sorry Ferals). They also cover items, talents, spec changes, glyphs, and more! The audio can be found here: Jarre also has some extra comments in this blog post of theirs. Check it out, it is interesting.

Hope you are feeling refreshed after our cat nap.


Team Waffle Cast Talks Feral and Answers Questions

Before I get into this weeks post I have a few shout outs. A podcast that I listen to called Darkmoon Herald was talking about different strategies and methods to get the guild achievement for killing 50,000 critters. I sent them an email with a suggestion that my friends and I did in order to get the achievement which they discussed in episode 25. You can check out episode 22 of The Darkmoon Herald for more information on this achievement. If you would like to know what my friends and I did exactly, leave a comment or send me an email.
