WoW Druid Class Guide
Druids are great characters for players that like to play lots of different classes.
Druids are shape shifters so you could potentially play as a caster so that you can heal and cause damage with your spells or you could become a warrior, a rogue, or some other type of character class.
It is important for you to remember that regardless of what you choose, you need to pay close attention to your talent tree because it makes quite a difference in the effectiveness of your character.
Druids are great characters but a lot of groups shy away from them because the changing characters can make it difficult for the other group members to know how to act. The uncertainty of a druid’s spec can cause some problems, but there are also advantages. Some groups use a druid as primary healers, but more probably use them as secondary healers. Druids also make good DPS attackers. They can also be good primary tanks and offtanks. If you want to join a group, you just have to know how to market yourself so that your positive attributes seem to outweigh your negatives.
You should also mention to the group that druids buffs add thorns as a damage shield. They also add a bonus to all stats, resistances, and armor. If you are certain to approach the group by mentioning these extra buffs, a lot of them will be willing to accept you. After all, you can’t have too many.
Items and Equipment for WoW Druids
Druids are allowed to wear cloth and leather. They can use all of the maces, daggers, fist weapons, and staves. Many druids prefer the staves because they add bonuses to their caster attributes. The bonuses that come with other weapons are typically more appropriate for other forms. If you are in animal form, you can’t use a proc weapon so you shouldn’t even weaste your time and money getting these items.
You should, however, be concerned with your armor. Bear and dire bear form will multiply your armor bonus. You might not have the money to buy a really powerful enchantment, but an even a simple armor patch can be really effective.
Professions for Druids
There are a couple of combinations that work well for druids. Skinning and leatherworking is good for players that are new to the game because they won’t have the money required to purchase equipment. These professions allow you to make your own equipment.
Herbalism and alchemy is also good, especially if creating equipment doesn’t bother you. These professions can make you a lot of money because you will be able to sell herbs and potions. You will also be able to use those potions on yourself.
The talents that you choose to purchase can really affect the way that a druid character plays. You should try out new ones to see what kind of an effect they have. When you get the right one for your character it can make all the difference.
