    I had assumed previously that IWT wouldn't be available, since it wasn't in the original game, so casters would be the only viable option. With IWT available I much prefer melee. Casters are still...

    The same holy/prot spec is fine for your main healer: https://classicdb.ch/?talent#sVxurg0xVGLI0z

    While it's true you do lose XP from green mobs, they also deal a lot less damage to you so you can pull them a lot quicker. As long as your tank can maintain decent threat and you have good AE damage...

    Don't forget to pre-HoT yourself, too. Regrowth/rejuv before a pull helps quite a lot to pick up initial threat.

    Since you have a main tank you could probably even go ret on one of your paladins....

    Your HoT's won't be enough to keep you alive through any dungeon fight unless you're just farming very low level mobs and if you try to shift out of form to heal yourself during combat as a druid you...

    People often overlook improved thorns in vanilla. It's actually pretty solid threat builder as a tank....

    Ah I misread your question. Swapping a warrior for a druid would reduce your overall damage a little in PvE but you'd still be able to clear fine. In PvP 2 warriors with freedom will still wreck...

    Problem is almost every dungeon has mobs that stun, interrupt, knockback, etc. Even low level dungeons like Stockades the mobs will kick you and stun you.

    Voidwalkers are actually reasonably good...

    Engineering seems like it would make more sense. Run in with invisibility pots, pop goblin sapper charges, frost nova and arcane explosion and you could probably wipe a raid if they were stacked and...

    Warrior/paladin is definitely a stronger team all around.

    You wouldn't play the druids the same way though. Druids would just be for stealthing around enemy cities ganking people while they're...

    Rogues require too much micro to be effective in PvE or PvP IMO. I wouldn't want to try boxing one.

    I'd just keep one set of feral and one set of spell damage on each of the druids. Go 4* feral...

    Yeah, the HotW/NS spec is pretty much best all around for PvE/PvP. I'd probably run in spell damage gear and just swap into form for stealth.

    Actually, in spell damage gear you probably wouldn't...

    Substituting arcane explosion for hellfire makes things a little bit more awkward but overall it's pretty much the same. Nice thing about arcane explosion is you can ignore knockbacks and interrupts....

    It really depends on the situation. If you charge into a raid with 4 warriors you're probably going to die. If you're part of a zerg vs zerg fight though where you're not the only target, you can...

    LBRS is pretty simple with 5. UBRS is much more challenging. It's possible with 5 characters but you need a specific composition and decent gear to manage it. Probably easier just to pug a few more...

    My plan at the moment is to level the paladins as holy and the warriors as 2H fury until I get enough hit rating to DW. Whenever necessary you can switch to a 1H/shield and go defensive stance on any...

    Some of it probably doesn't translate but that doesn't mean people haven't acquired a lot more knowledge about the game in the past 15 years. If nothing else, the tricks with particular items or raid...

    I'm just curious if [@player] works. It would make things a lot easier to macro when you're mindlessly grinding dungeons.

    Another use I can think of for two warlocks over two mages is having different pets. One could have an imp out for blood pact and fire shield and the other could have a felhunter for interrupts and...

    Warriors have stronger AE on standard mob packs (4-6) with cleave/whilrlwind. Mages and warlocks have stronger AE on larger packs because their AE skills have no cap. However, you only really utilize...
