Ramblings of a resto druid
Tag Archives: update
March 9, 2011Posted by on
I haven’t posted for a few days, but I have been busily updating the blog stealthily in the background.
I’m currently working on a guide to druid healing. Sigh. I know it adds to the huge waving sea of information out there, but my concern is that there isn’t much that’s pitched at absolute newcomers to the spec/class. With that in mind I’m currently shaping up a two part guide:
1. Resto druid healing for absolute beginners: including
- one sample talent build with a brief rundown of talents,
- our key healing spells described in plain language,
- a simple strategy for healing 5 man dungeons, and
- simply key binding and ui tips
2. Resto healing, the details: including
- managing mana,
- tank and raid healing strategies for raids, and
- setting up raid frames/macros
Not surprisingly, this is taking me a while.
I’ll post the first part soon (hopefully over the weekend) as that’s nearly done; I just need to add some screenshots and flesh out the last section a little. Writing this to be as short and simple as possible is a challenge, especially when I love the class/spec and tend to ramble when I let myself loose.
The second section I’m mainly writing for self-indulgent reasons. I know there’s already lots of detailed druid guides out there, but I don’t want my ‘simple’ guide to be seen as all there is, so the need to flesh this out in a second ‘chapter’ compels me.
So in summary: watch this space, especially if you have a friend/alt/offspec interested in dipping toes into the pond of resto druid healing for the first time.
