    Heart of the Wild Question

    Hey Druids,

    I'm looking at getting my PVP weapon and I'm a little bit stuck. Everyone I've looked at goes for the mainhand/offhand for the following reasons:

    1. Faster weapon swing speed (hitting totems etc)
    2. Offhand enchant means more total intellect

    Now, my question is, does 1h/oh reduce the damage done in cat form and damage done in cat form while Heart of the Wild is up?

    I use Heart of the Wild -a lot- in 2s / 3s for scoring kills and helping out on damage, and if the damage is reduced using a 1h/oh then i'd rather take a drop of 100 int for the extra burst.

    Thanks. x

    Mainhand = Malevolent Gladiator's Gavel
    Offhand = Malevolent Gladiator's Reprieve

    Staff = Malevolent Gladiator's Energy Staff

    Stat Difference:
    From MH/OH to Staff:
    +21 Stamina
    -151 Intellect (including enchant)
    +283 Spirit
    -274 Crit (some of that could've been reforged to spirit on the MH)

    So you can see, a drop in crit and int, but a gain in spirit going from MH/OH to 2h.

    Don't most do a weapon swap to a agility weapon when they HotW into feral?

    Not in PvP, unless you can afford 2 PvP-weapons.

    Yes , 1h+oh gives lessed dmg output in cat form than Staff.

    Staff is my choice because of this (and looks good)

    With the nerf to agi scaling for non feral when using HoTW, I thought it was better for resto to just stick with SP weapon and moonfire+wrath spam.

    For boomkin using HoTW, yeah i'd prolly swap to an agi staff.
