Well I have my new Druid to level 50 and I have to say that I am not sure if it the class mechanics or just the heirloom gear but single target nuking is easier with Balance than with any of the other casters I have leveled to date.
My cast sequence is the following:
- Insect Swarm
By this point 90% of the mobs I face +/-2 levels of me, as long as all spells hit, are dead. I remember having to run around like an idiot or take a bunch of damage in the process on every other caster class with a few exceptions with warlock. With warlock the pet or fear replaced the root. Now for fun I also made a video of it just to show but have not yet had a successful upload to youtube.
Now with video!
This second part got me thinking that I may with assistance of Lissanna make a video guide to the various classes demonstrating various techniques for when Cataclysm launches or at least shortly thereafter. I remember and really liked the BRK video guides on playing a hunter in different encounters and so will most likely not wander into hunter land but most of the others I may experiment with.
Also anyone reading this that may be interested in collaborating on the whole L2P video initiative let me know.
