Noobkin to Boomkin: Pre-Cataclysm

>>>This guide has been updated for level 85! Please see Noobkin to Boomkin: Cataclysm!<<<


This guide is now outdated. Please refer to Noobkin to Boomkin: Cataclysm for information pertaining to level 85 raiding.

Patch 4.0.1 is the topic across almost every blog this month, and for good reason–this patch is going to dramatically change our specs, stats, glyphs, gems, and rotations.

Note: Sometimes you just want the basics. “What can I do to walk into this raid tonight prepared on my boomkin alt?” or “I don’t really know the class well yet, what can I do to survive until I have more experience?” That’s what I’m all about here. If you’re looking for the straight facts–what spec, what enchants, what gems–you’ll find that information in the blue text.

A Smattering

Smattering: a small scattered number or amount.  That’s what this blog is; a smattering of information.

First:  Progress.

We made a few passes at Mimiron last night, and it’s safe to say Phases 1 and 2 are pretty well under our control.  If we can figure out exactly what works for us when it comes to the bots, we’ll have it.

Second: The Forums

I actually contacted WoWInsider about it, because let’s face it, they have a lot more influence than I do.  I haven’t heard anything back yet, but I’ll certainly pass along what I find out, if anything, for my fellow (and now, sadly, former) forum people.  Wow, that was some serious alliteration.  Go me.

Third:  Solar vs Lunar Rotation Stats

While rolling through Elitist Jerks this week I stumbled on an interesting conversation about Solar vs Lunar rotation.  Supposedly, if you choose Solar (that is, casting SF to proc Wrath), you need to stack crit over haste because Wrath haste caps at 400.  Are any of you trying out the Solar rotation?  What have you found?

I doubt I’ll be switching to Solar myself unless there’s a significant change.  I prefer the way Lunar rolls for me, and I’m pretty attached to my haste right now.  The fact that my Wrath cast matches the GCD makes me crazy hot.

Fourth: State of the Battle Chicken

We’re kind of in stasis right now.  I’ve fallen in love with the game again, which means (not surprisingly) I’m playing more than I’m writing.  I promise not to neglect the few of you who still wander over here, though.  I appreciate it more than you know!  In the meantime, here are some things to check out:

Fifth: A Chuckle at My Expense

I’m not going to give you the background information; it’s neither here nor there.  Here’s the conversation on vent last night:

“Well, someone broke the sheep that time…

Someone with moonfire…



Happy Hunting, Everyone!
