I have been a warrior tank since vanilla, and recently I was challenged with getting all the tanking classes to 85.
I have a DK, Warrior, and Paladin accomplished. I am now working on the druid and have a few questions,
1) from first appearances a druid can do all three roles with two specs. I cannot seem to find any feral cat talent that would appear to dramatically impact a MT bear from simply going into cat form and doing very respectable DPS, which frees up your dual spec for a healer spec. Am I wildly wrong in this?
2) I am level 58 on my druid and am having some difficulties. The warrior, for instance, has an instant attack (devastate) which I can spam as long as I have rage, plus several attacks on various cooldowns (Shield Slam, Herioc Strike). At level 58 with the druid, all my attacks are on various cooldowns. I have basically Mangle, Maul, and Feral Faerie Fire. I have come to the conclusion that Feral Faerie fire is actually a core part of a bear tanks rotation, am I wrong? Obviously Maul does not trigger the global cooldown so that is a great ability and unlike the warriors cleave/HS on same cooldown the bears swipe and maul do not share one, so that is interesting.
I am having some problems with holding pack aggro with only Demo Roar and Swipe since swipe seems to take forever to cooldown heh. I have glyphed Maul and that seems to help quite a bit. Any advice on pack tanking would be most appreciated.
Thanks for reading!
