Memoirs - Heroic Elegon 10 Man

Sweet DK... um I mean druid last man standing Elegon.

A Real Nature's Swiftness Macro!

#showtooltip Nature's Swiftness
/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",0)
/cast nature's swiftness
/cast healing touch
/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",1)

Thanks to Williee on MMO-Chamion <3

Just a note: I've also worked this in to Clique. 

1. Open the Clique options from your spell book.
2. At the bottom click Bind other and select "Run custom macro"
3. Click "Set binding" and hit the key you want to bind it to.
4. In the text box put:

/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",0)
/cast nature's swiftness
/cast [@mouseover] Healing Touch;
/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",1)

This just runs the same macro you would use for yourself but casts it at your mouseover target.

Bear Weapon Enchants

Just a quick post on weapon enchants now that we have access to Living Steel. Windsong is still our better enchant.

Dancing Steel - Permanently enchants a melee weapon to sometimes increase your Strength or Agility by 1,650 when dealing melee damage.  Your highest stat is always chosen. (12 second buff)

Windsong - Permanently enchants a melee weapon to sometimes increase your critical strike, haste, or mastery by 1500 for 12 sec when dealing damage or healing with spells and melee attacks.  Requires a level 372 or higher item.

At first glace, to the average druid who HASN'T been reading along, (jk) Dancing Steel looks to be the better choice.

Windsong (2RPPM)
Uptime 40%
Ave Stat Weight 0.0243    (Crit+Haste+Mastery)/3
Enchant Weight 14.56

Dancing Steel (1PPM)
        Agi         1650             %Uptime        >14.56

This works out that Dancing Steel needs to have a 30.23% up time.

Time to start watching logs, I will update you guys as I see more actual uptimes from mine and other bear logs.

Note: Basic math:
 Enchant Weight = stat weight * amount * % Uptime

Flawless Bear Dance

Finally Will of the Emperor didn't bug for me! I got to dance dance party!

Heroic Stone Guard

I've been trying to keep on various forums to see how the bear community is doing and there has been tons of questions and discussions on heroic Stone Guard. Just thought I'd blog our kill video and just give a few tips that really helped us.

- Four healing ten man made this incredibly easy to manage the damage. With the tile buffs there is just so much throughput due to so much mana and damage has no problem beating the enrage with one less dps

- This is a clear case where FR shines (SD vr FR Post)

The Bear Necessities - Macros

Complete Macro List and Description

Start Attack and Cancel Auras
- Keybind: 4

/cancelaura Parachute
/cancelaura Hand of Protection
/cast Mangle

Note: Removes unwanted [Blessing of Protection] or I delay hitting it to sit in it as well as cancels the parachute for Spine. Also /startattack on every attack.

AoE Rotation
Simple cast sequence with everything I use in the 6 seconds of my total aoe rotation.
- Keybind: Mousewheel Down

/castsequence [stance:1] reset=6 Thrash, Swipe, Mangle, Swipe; [stance:3] reset=6 Thrash, Swipe, Swipe, Swipe;

Note: This is one button aoe for both bear and cat. Keep in mind in cat with normal energy regen you can Swipe three times before the Thrash dot falls off.

Simple mouseover > target priority on my taunt.
- Keybind: 1

#showtooltip Growl
/cast [@mouseover, exists, harm][exists, harm] Growl;

Note: I use this for:

[Skull Bash]
Stance adjust with focus > mouseover > target priority
- Keybind: Mousewheel Up

/cast [nostance:1/3] Soothe; [stance:1/3, @focus, exists, harm][@mouseover, exists, harm][@target, exists, harm] Skull Bash;

Stance adjust with mouseover > target priority (no focus)
- Keybind: Shift Mousewheel Up

/cast [nostance:1/3] Soothe; [@mouseover, exists, harm][@target, exists, harm] Skull Bash;

Note: Both of these will [Skull Bash] while in [Bear Form] or [Cat Form] and [Soothe] otherwise. Mousewheel Up to interrupt focus and if I have a focus shift mousewheel up to interrupt my target or mouseover target.

Focus Macros
Useful for everyone. Mouseover or target set focus with a quick clear focus bind.

Focus - Set
Shift Mousewheel Down

/focus [@mouseover, nodead, exists][@target]

Focus - Clear
Ctrl Mousewheel Down
