Warlords of Draenor Approacheth

I’m so glad I started out with Monk.  If I had done it as an alt, I probably wouldn’t have gotten around to it.  It’s got completely different mechanics and the dual resource system is quite the challenge.

That said, not sure I want to raid with mistweaver.  Some classes just click and others not so much.  I like monk, but I wonder if I could be any better than average at it.

So I am trying Druid again, since I haven’t healed on a druid since Lich King, and I remember why I liked it, and why I stopped playing one.

One of my beefs with Druid in cata was the loss of tree form.  Yes, it’s just sentimental and stupid but goddamnit you cannot take my tree.  Now there’s a glyph.  When I realized this, I was a little too excited.  I grabbed that sucker and I’m back, like retro style, healing stuff with my branches waving in the air (like I just don’t care).  I know the glyph does nothing substantive.  I don’t care.  It’s so awesome.

It's OK to be jealous.

So far, I’ve noticed that druid flows better than monk in terms of when you get abilities.  Mistweaver Monk is horribly gimped in the leveling process. The only thing I’m missing right now on Druid is an aoe.  I feel weird without ANY aoe, not even an oh-shit button.  When do I get Wild Growth? Not soon enough.

You’re probably wondering at this point why I don’t just use my 90 boost.  The answer is that, even though I know how 2 druid, it’s been so long that I didn’t want to boost to 90 and then go duhhhhh.  Right now I’m learning, getting a feel for new abilities, glyphs I like, etc.  It’s funsies.  Also, it will be super-crowded leveling 90-100 anyway, so why the rush?
