i've just started leveling a druid (22 now lol), and i'm planning on turning him into a boomkin from level 46 onwards.
i just have a few questions before i blow a wad of cash for gear and a re-spec...
1. what do you guys use a main nuke? starfire or wrath?
2. from a raiding standpoint, is it ok to use cloth (from 46 onwards)?
1&2.2 if starfire's your main nuke, is it ok to use 3/3 spellfire?
3. is this build ok for raids? http://wowhead.com/?talent=0t0r%
4. do i use Force of Nature the same way frost mages use their elem (practially each time it's up)?
5. what's the trent's dps and health based on?
any tips would be greatly appreciated :D

edit: aw wth...all the links i make are broken...
thanks for your feedback.
hmhm...it's just that leather spell gear is tough to find..oh well, the +400% armor puts them on the same footing in terms of defence with shammies anyway...
but what about or raiding? what's the standard nuke? wrath takes less time and mana, but does less damage, but starfire does more, takes more, and takes longer to cast... and the fact that starfire benefits more from spell damage comes into play too....hmhhm >__< i can has halp? :3 or may be even a spell rotation?

Here's a good resource for help : http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=2215646573&sid=1&pageNo=13
Main nuke : starfire
Main rotation : MF, IS, SF*3 (or IS, SF*4 when having mana problems).
While levelling, i used 2 starfires, and then either wrath or moonfire/wrath depending on the life left on the mob. I rarely used roots as it wasn't really worth it except against elites (i had moonkin gear from raiding at 60 though which certainly helped a lot)
Raiding starts at 70. For levelling especially but also instances, it's somewhat usefull to be more solid since there are risks of agro (especially in pick-up groups), though not absolutely required.
For raiding, take whatever has the best stats.
Anyway, you won't find many leather items before entering Outland. There you'll find several very good moonkin item, until you're 70 where the dearth hits again. (well, bage gear alleviated this problem a lot)
Spellfire is OK to use, though i personnaly didn't bother. Picking up tailoring just for that and since it's useless against arcane immune mobs (not many, But you'll encounter one or two). If you want a crafting gear set, Windhawk might be a better idea (less dmg but better suited for us globally).
(i didn't get it either :p)
Treant's life is probably based on your stamina (unsure), and their dps is based on your spell damage. Use it whenever you feel like, if you keep it only for urgencies you will end up never really using it at all.
Build : look at the link you are trying to copy paste, the profanity filter is what's screwing it up. Alternatively, using a more elaborate link like this
might fool it.
