My druid is almost 90 and I have capped JPs and almost capped Honor so once I hit 90 I can cash it all in on a few pieces of PvP gear. I might hold off until 5.2 but which is currently better in BGs? I enjoy playing both of them but would rather focus on getting one spec geared first before trying another one. Is one spec currently stronger in BGs than the other at 90? I have played and really enjoyed both while leveling but we all know if its not level 90 it doesnt matter. Also is 5.2 going to drastically change either spec to make them worse or better? Without working BGs on the PTR its kind hard to test anything.
You don't need to really free cast often as a moonkin in random bgs. I usually top the damage meters even if I solo que. it really depends on which playstyle you prefer, since both feral and moonkin are vastly different.
I like both. Feral is fun sneaking around and ninja capping nodes while some dude is 5 feet in front of you drinking. Its also fun to find people at 25% health drinking and 2 shot them. Been watching some Moonkin videos and they look like a load of fun. All I see are numbers scrolling across the screen. I guess you just DoT everything in sight and then spam instant Starsurges? I will admit though my skillcap is kinda low. Im not terrible and I know all BG objectives but Im not into rated stuff so I guess that means Im not that skilled. Have tried to do rated but no one ever lets me join cause I have never had a rating so i guess that does make me bad. So just wondering which would be easier to play as a bad PvPer?
For BGs I would actually go Boomkin. I can do top damage in regular BGs if I try to as feral but it takes a lot more effort to do that. Feral can also pretty much 1v2/1v3 bases (random bgs, lol) but Boomkin easily has a lot more damage especially when geared. It depends what you want to do. As a boomkin you really have to go around with the group as it has poor surviability and the effect of HUGE damage in group fights. I play feral as more of a "lone wolf" solo attacking bases etc while they are busy at another base.
