    Yo I need some enlightment.

    What role as a druid is the best at 29 in classic? Or are they complete trash?

    Is mana a big issue and does someone have a clue on what gear to get?

    Thanks

    I could see it being fun because of the stealth mechanic and the breadth of kit, but vs any higher lvl char you'll struggle because of resists and such. Keep that in mind.

    The 20-29 bracket is most likely the weakest bracket for druids compared to others as well. But some people really enjoy the challenge.

    You're pretty much going to be an FC. We ran a healer back in the day and it was awesome, but more due to the excellent player than the class really being amazing at 29. Every healer has mana issues at 29 (other than paladin) but I wouldn't say it's worse for druids.

    Yeah usually FC tier list goes like this:

    1. solo q; no healer? - mage
    2. have healer? especially pally? - druid and mage equal
    3. full prem? - warrior/druid

    pretty accurate.
    every class can do every role better then a druid could.
    only roll druid if you love fcing and duo que /premade

    First post for me, but since BGs just opened up I've started leveling a druid to 29 (on horde side this time) and have extensive experience and almost 50 days played during vanilla and TBC on a 29 twink druid as the main FC for our fairly large twink guild on Magtheridon.

    As others have said, you have plenty of utility but shouldn't really expect to be blowing up other twinks 1v1. I was specced for, and mainly focused on, flag running for WSG and node capping in AB but could still put up decent DPS and excellent survivability and utility with over 4k HPs fully buffed. You also have Abolish Poison to rid yourself of pesky Rogue poisons without wasting mana on a shift, Natures Grasp to root Warriors/Rogues/Palys, Feral Charge to for movement/root/interupt, Bash for stuns, Feline Swiftness allowing you to outrun everyone consistently, and obviously shifting for all it's benefits!

    Gear-wise, I focused on stamina > int > agility/strength > spirit but these priorities could change depending on what spec you are planning on running. The BG rep rewards from WSG (ring and staff) and AB (waist, boots, and trinket) are great items but will obviously take time to earn, while the standard 29 twink rogue items (Triprunners, RHT, Razerics, etc) are good to fill in the other slots.

    Overall, I thought druids at 29 were very fun to play and gear tends to be fairly cheap so you don't need a huge gold investment to make them viable!

    Has anyone tried a full dps build with crowdpummuler for the on use effect of 50 percent attack speed? You would nuke and fc wouldn't you?

    Druid is fun. Flag carrying is a blast. Stam/Int up and go to town!
