Feathers, fur or fins
Feathers, fur or fins
If it walks on legs or flies on wings
If it runs or crawls or slithers or swims
It’s got its place in the scheme of things
Feathers, fur or fins-
We have a Kids singer on Oz called Don Spencer, and he has an appropriate druid theme song called Feather, Fur or Fins ( especially now I have flight form. Feathers ! Yeah!) The song is from the 80’s when I was growing up ( showing my age here) ( not to be confused to with Feather, Fur and Fins) – I cannot find you a Youtube clip of Don’s song however if you really want to listen on his website you can listen to an extract of the song – so I got to practice the tune :) I guess the need to identify with trees now are a little less so I still think the song fits even though there is no bark in there.
I think I am kind of in love with my Druid. She is well on her way to being my 6th 80 – and is 63 at the moment.
I thank Elune for catform and Dash so I can run faster to catch up to you when you don’t give me enough time to drink. I thank Elune for Innervate so I don’t have to do that often.
I thank Elune for the thorns I can place upon you so you hold threat
I thank Elune for Barkskin, and Natures Grasp and Shadow Meld so that I may protect myself when you can not
I cannot stress how useful thorns have been for keeping agro off me, the healer. I have only really been smashed once because tank lost agro , and inbetween being beaten upon by mobs, I managed to snarkily say ” its ok .. you don’t need a healer.. “

It gets used on cool down/saved for the right pack. Eg if its off cool down, and only one mob, I’ll save it for the next pull. Though it does highlight why some healers have “Barkskin used” macro’d to appear in Party chat. I think its annoying. Theoretically I can see that its a useful poke “Hey…. healer in trouble.. help.”
I should set up a macro every time I get meleed for something higher then say 20% if my health. ” Save your healer” “Get them off me” “Halp!” I do try and do all my best to keep myself alive. Barkskin, Shadow Meld, Natures Grasp – then a shuffle out of the mobs melee range.
Just in case you don’t believe me on how good thorns have been ( for someone else s damage !! ><
and just in case it was a fluke or a bad DK tank.. here is another one
I haven’t got all the yummy healing spells yet, but so far I feel I have one for all occasions. The lots of little heals, Swiftmend, and Wildgrowth are easily able to top off people who when healing as a priest (pre Circle of healing ) required a dedicated flash or renew.
I have also been using most of my innervates on myself. Though if its on cool down and I don’t believe I will need it, and someone else does I will cast it on them. I don’t have it macro’d telling them they are getting it, so maybe they don’t even realize. When I was leveling my hunter through dungeons with a friend’s druid he used to give me Innervate. – and I can’t reciprocate to other hunters now because they don’t have mana anymore.
I am slightly resentful that Natures Cure in my talent tree allows me to cleanse a Magic affect as well. So I have been a bad Druid and not taken it yet. Of course I will, but Poisons and Curses AND magic. That’s not fair. I am not a dispel bot. I probably will pick it up next talent point, I have just been holding it off a little. It’s usually disease that people scream to have cleansed off them anyone, so no one has noticed so far . Shhhhhh
I shall not become the pugnacious Druid, though 3 hours wiping on a LK normal 25 kill as a holy priest did make me triple think the idea that I might want to be healing more in Cata
