I leveled my druid to 90 as feral/restoration, but I've gotten pretty bored with both specs so I decided to switch to guardian/balance. Bear form tanking seems very straightforward and I've had no problem with that, but I'm having some more trouble as a moonkin. I read the basic rotation sections of the guide on icy veins, and that's helped some. Does anyone have some more advice on how I should be doing stuff? I've never done this spec till now, so I don't really have a good handle on all my spells and passive abilities.

i wouldnt mind hearing some tips myself..
i have decent gear, ilvl 476 but lack in the dps i should be doing.. (should be doing about 50k dps with my gear, finding it hard to maintain around 40k)

i dont think my rotation is the issue so would like to hear other peoples advice also

reroll back to feral. Boomkin is awful. It's clunky, and doesn't have the levels of crit or haste to be useful this patch.
Even addiction has diminishing returns.

i've seen plenty of boomkins top dps in alot of raids so rerolling back to feral, whilst an option, isn't necessary.

Please change your vector and move to a different coordinate because this quadrant is off limits.

I am doing resto/balance (Healer in pvp/dungeons and balance in solo leveling). I recommend this one addon Boomkinator. It really helps with cool downs and rotation

Though I do agree the class feels clunky. Imo its a odd mix of every caster class.

Here is what you do as a Boomkin.

1. You re-roll either Feral or Resto. Maybe Guardian but they are kind of crappy too right now (kind of for the same reasons that Boomkin are).

2. You become a world top 20 player who can excel in multi-DoT fights and be sat for every single other fight.
