3.3.3 is live today. Visit the 3.3.3 recap for a detailed break down of the balance druid changes.
I’ve been asked a few times what glyph and talent changes should occur in 3.3.3. I personally do not see any talent changes specifically because of the patch. As for glyphs, you should now be replacing [item]Glyph of Insect Swarm[/item] with [item]Glyph of Starfall[/item]. I am not bothering with [item]Glyph of Focus[/item] because it’s been nerfed.
This should have you using:
[item]Glyph of Moonfire[/item]
[item]Glyph of Starfire[/item]
[item]Glyph of Starfall[/item]
How will this affect your rotation? If you were keeping insect swarm up for DPS, you no longer need to. You may wish to keep it up on certain fights if your tank is getting rocked as you now have the boss hit debuff component back. Personally I really only use it for a few heroic hardmodes and during movement. I also do not concern myself with 100% Moonfire uptime, I just aim to keep the idol fully developed at all times. If you need to refresh it during a solar eclipse, do it in the tail end so you can hopefully let the moonfire carry over into lunar eclipse (where it’ll extend).
Starfall does it’s most potent damage between two or more targets. While you should be using Starfall on every cooldown, if you’re in a fight where there are adds and you’re only a few seconds away from encountering them, you will see the most damage output by waiting.
