Bear formI've decided that I'm going to get [Reins of the Raven Mount] as my primary land mount.
My main spec is and always will be resto and my comfortable offspec is Balance. I leveled as resto and did some [0/30/31] in TBC pre heroics but I have never ever played as fully feral and I'm not updated with all feral changes in Wrath but now I've changed my secondary spec into some custom 'I have no clue' feral bear spec which looked ok to me for my purposes (0/55/16). I spent quite a bit of gold on enhancing my feral set with the intention of being able to solo most TBC heroics and especially Anzu. The gear is a mixture of Naxx, heroic and Ulduar pieces with 2 T7 and a T8 head. It's my offspec offspec set, I mean give me a break if it wasn't enchanted or gemmed! ;)
I've easily soloed Anzu twice now with no mount so far and I've also soloed Mana Tombs, Auchenai Crypts and Underbog heroics and it's really awesome. Playing bear is very fun but I'd never dare to tank an instance for real. I'm not updated on numbers like defense and expertise etc.
Here are my numbers in bear form self buffed with no food or elixirs/flasks:
29 377 health
27 351 armor
5576 attack power
135 hit rating
Doing ok for TBC heroics but probably a way to go until raid capable. Sorry all you true ferals if I let you down. I guess I'm critable and have too little avoidance and need more hit and defense.
Hard modesThree new 10 man hard modes completed tonight:
Orbit-uary. First time for me in a Siege engine so that was fun. I died right before the kill but it wasn't hard to complete it.
Heartbreaker. We tank him to the west as you can see in the picture. Everyone clumped up, Death knight tanks adds, gravity bombs go left, light bombs go right. Easy.
Stokin' the Furnace
I also went and got [Leading the Cavalery] done. 50 seemed like a nice number.
