I dropped out of the guildraids due to lack of time, so I occationally run BGs to get the honor for some nice PVP gear for my Rogue..
Have some really crappy daggers on him, going for 2x Gladiator mainhand daggers for my mutiliate build
Well after all this, he started doing Arathi Basin BG's and now he has found a new love!

Dva, the game only starts at 70. Actually its kinda sad, 1-60 is now a PITA solo fest cause the population is just to thin. Pre BC, the game didnt have a whole lot to do once you hit 60. You could raid sometimes, but there wasnt much to do outside of that, so leveling alts was a popular thing. Now when people hit 70, the game dosnt stop there. not only do you have raids, but you have heroics, you have a plethora of factions to level up in and obtain rewards from. You have tradeskills that can only be obtained from camping. You have dalies to do and when you finally make enough cash, an epic flying mount to buy. And there is a ton of PVP options to play with now.

These days getting to 70 is the rush, and then the real game starts.

I moved all my toons to a new server. Am dedicating my warrior to PvE tanking and my Druid to PvP BGs and PvE DPS.

If I ever get my Shaman to 70 (63 now), then he will be assigned to healing duty.

Yeh...and because its such a rush to get to 70, I do wonder what the calibre of the new 70's will be like.
I dunno.....I dont mind levelling at all.

My coworker just recently got me started in WOW. Been playing for a while and so far the game is OK but not something uber special. I think I need more PvP in a game like this.

My thing in MMO's is building exotic GvG or PvG character specs and then going in large RPK (random player kill parties) that just arbitrarily raise hell in enemy cities. Just doesn't seem like that is very viable in this game, this game seems mostly about PvE and nothing else.

FWIW I am building a nightelf druid right now.

Yeah I originally wanted to go horde on a PvP server but my coworker talked me into alliance on a RP server (scarlet crusade to be specific.) I even started with a rogue too but I hated that after like level 15 because it doesn't seem to go anywhere interesting. Plus something tells me that a rogue isn't the best PvG class. Possibly PvP solo but I think druid would probably be better.

in a situation where nobody has gear, feral druids can be rather nasty. Once you add in gear, druids tend to start to suck in PvP.

Ferals hit their stride about 20 for ferals with cat form, however bear can be ez-mode low level grinding if you know what you are doing.

Chicken feathers is only for the masochistic and don't become viable for anything other than pain until around 41.

In a PvP situation, a supported resto druid is God. Check the druid forums and see how may QQ threads are in there, its all because of resto druids.

PS: if you want spec ideas, let me know

Why would nobody have gear? Is that some kind arena thing or smth?

How would druid be in GvG?

What kind of toon would be better for solo PvP if not feral druid?

Yeah I might hit you up on that. Right now I have only a narrow understanding of how different build configurations work in wow. In fact I barely even know what is meant by "feral" druid. Only been playing for about 5 days now.
