Druid Tips & Tricks
I remember a long time ago I was in an instance with a PUG and I noticed a little gleam every once in a while on the end of one of the warrior’s weapons. Kind of like that little white starburst the toothpaste commercials show on your teeth. Anyway, at the time I thought it was just a cool visual effect Blizzard had added.
Fast forward many months and I create my Hunter alt. For professions I choose Mining and Blacksmithing. Well it didn’t take me too long to figure out that little gleam is the effect of sharpening your bladed weapon with a sharpening stone. If I hadn’t taken blacksmithing as a profession, I probably won’t know about sharpening stones to this day.
That’s what I love about this game. There are all kinds of little tricks that while not major by themselves, can add up to give you a definite edge. Some are just general, some you come across based on the professions you choose, and even others you just figure out on your own.
I had intended to put a couple of the little tricks I’ve figured out along the way in this post, but let’s try something different. I know there are a few of you out there now reading this blog on a regular basis. I’m further assuming that most of you are Druids (or druid sympathizers). So I’m going to leave this post open-ended and ask you all to post your favorite Druid tip or trick that you use on a regular basis to give yourself a little edge.
My personal focus is PvE not PvP, but feel free to post any and all suggestions. If I get enough feedback, maybe we’ll start a separate Tips & Tricks page on this blog.
This is dangerous territory here – calling out for feedback. I know there is a tendency for the Internet to be more vouyerism than participation. So come on, take 2 minutes to post your thoughts – I guarantee it won’t hurt and it might even be fun.
