    I am a tree, really? (resto question)

    Quick question.

    Will i have to use the tree form if i'm gonna play a resto druid?
    I'm about to create my first druid but i absolutely despise the tree form.

    I remember the tree form used to have some healing buffs that made it sort of mandatory to use.
    Is this still how it is? i've been away from wow for some time.

    Thanks for reading!

    Its a glyph and a talent. You can use the glyph to remain in tree form indefintely, but it provides no benefits. The talent is a cooldown that you don't have to take.

    In other words, no you dont have to be in tree form at all

    Its still a cooldown which you will have to sue from time to time to play optimally; but you only have to be a permanent tree if you buy and activate the glyph, there were too many trees fed up with never being able to ese their lovely gear.

    I loved to be a tree but rigth now its impossible if you want to be a good healer, i just can't spend gcd an mana everytime after using displeacer beast to become a tree again. It should be a permanent buf while not dead so people like me can be a tree again without beeing a worse healer

    So go with Glyph of the Treant. It's an automatic thing that applies whenever you're in resto spec.

    To the original poster: As others have said, no, you don't have to be a tree at all to be a good resto druid. There's the glyph I just linked for those who do like the look, and there's the level 60 talent option Incarnation that gives you the bigger, ancient-like tree form for a few seconds every few minutes. But not all resto druids take that, and there are things to be said for the other options in that tier. So go forth and heal without leaves.

    What he is saying is, that the Glyph of the Treant gives you a new "Treant Form", but it costs 3360 mana, is on the GCD, and will cancel when you Displacer Beast. Which, is rather stupid honestly. I <3 Tree Form.

    You had to use Tree form back in the days of TBC when form was granting you healing and spirit bonus.. Your speed was also reduced by something like 30% and you could be banished in that...I miss it...

    Not really. I can't think of any fight where Incarnation is really that useful. Just stick with SotF if you don't like the form.

    It'll cancel any time you want to use Displacer Beast, Dash, or Stampeding Roar, plus any time you go bear form to soak something (Iron Juggernaut mines, most notably).
    Diplomacy is just war by other means.

    This kinda makes me wish to play this game very laid back nowadays like before. Choosing talents and specs because of aesthetics sounds nice.

    But yeah, like others said, you don't need to be in tree form at all when playing a resto druid. You will be holding yourself a tiny bit back if you don't use the talent but it's nothing major.

    the incarnation talent right now is not as strong as it was on 5.0, with actual ilvl spirit its not an issue and u can use SoTF or FoN, they can be better than incarnation in some situations

    the only form i hate is walrus form.

    Avoid FoN! (except proving grounds I guess..)

    i hate moonkin form with a passion as well. i'd love if you could keep your nomral racemodel and maybe add some feathers growing out of the skin... i dunno.

    There is also a glyph which deactivates moonkin form and instead shows your character model with some stars sprinkling around...

    The talent does have its uses. Thok comes to mind. Maybe not really any other fights, now that I think about it. Nazgrim, maybe? /shrug
