I posted this to the official forums as well, but figured i would copy it over here since there seems to be a ton of great advice on these boards
Hey all, got a fairly normal question, but applicable to not the normal circumstance. I am interested in gear needed to make moonkin viable, but not for raiding. I am talking dailies and questing!
I am at about 475 feral and moonkin sets..for Isle dailies, or dominance point, or barrens quests...really anything with actual level 90 opponents. I feel like a naked mage with rank 1 frostbolt when I quest as a moonkin. As feral it goes just fine.
I understand that every 2 or 3 minutes I can pull 10 mobs and unleash hell down upon them, but that doesn't really fit my....playstyle I guess you would call it? I don't like that feeling of being close to useless for 2:45 and then a god for :30.
Now I know in terms of raiding, people always mention that Moonkin is very gear dependent on secondary stats ala starsurge procs, etc...and honestly it feels that way for questing as well. Do any of you high ilvl lazer chickens have any input? like did pulling a 2 pack of mobs with 500k health each ever get any easier? just feels like so much dang work as moonkin.
Thanks all, and I know some of you will say "im ilvl 450 and I solo all the quests in isle without taking any damage". Well obviously I don't posess that level of L2P, so take pity on me and explain.
