    Very interesting question. I think it depends on the role you want your druid to play. For me, personally, I have my armor statted mostly with Stam/Pdef bolstered with Stam/HP and Stam/Wis. My accesories, however are straight Int/Matt. I do that so she can solo quest, do mini games, and mirror world with ease. One could quite easily just have swap gear to satisfy that goal. For healing, well, you could probably go without statting at all an still produce adequate heals, the Pdef is for when you all the sudden become the tank, Int/Matt is so you can at least do some damage.

    In a nutshell, you would stat with Int/Matt if you feel you need to do more damage, but no need to go overboard as a mage will always out damage you.

    Playing devil's advocate: on the one hand, it sucks that there is no level cap; on the other hand, you have quests to level up your 4th class </sarcasm>

    i am surprised you haven't been able in 1 and half years time to level up your other classes just by doing daily :O

    Cannot check it yet, but the typical procedure lately has been you have to do quest first before daily becomes available. Therefore, need to be able to quest in order to access new dailies.

    The mistake I used to run into is in unpacking the add-on. When unpacking it generates another folder to unpack into. That folder has a name that looks right, and you may think you are done, but it is an extra folder that is unnecessary and can confuse the game. For example, when unpacking wowmaps, it unpacks into a folder called 'wowmaps' that has within it another folder named 'wowmaps' that has within it the necesssary files and folders for wowmaps to work. the first folder is what messes you up, what needs to go into the 'addons' folder is only the one folder named 'wowmaps', with it's associated files and subfolders.

    Now, there really should not be any difference between a person that buys for his own use and a diamond seller. The ratio of diamonds to rubies "needed" should be near the same on the average.

    I am not a diamond seller. I buy diamonds for my own use. For many years rubies were not an issue, as I seemed to get plenty enough for my own needs just from my own diamond purchases. However, just recently, I went to buy a fourth slot for a new piece of armor, and lo and behold, I did not have enough rubies. What happened? Well it is described in the posts above, GF has adjusted the ratio to provide less rubies per purchase.

    The laws of supply and demand would indicate that the price of rubies should increase to meet the demand. This seems obvious, but, there is one problem, it is not a separate commodity, diamonds and rubies are linked. By changing the ratio, GF is attempting to force people to buy with diamonds, things they don't need, in order to get the rubies that they do. Diabolical, but, like most things they do will probably backfire on them.

    Please clarify your goal.

    If all you want is a character that is going to successfully quest, then just about any class combo can be successful. Some better than others; Reynmar's suggestion of Warden/Druid is a good one, they have a white hit similar to the Knight/Mage, so set up correctly can do massive damage. I personally like Warrior/Druid mainly because you can swap to Druid/Warrior for runs if the buff is needed.

    Endgame instances...well the only one I can think of is a Knight/Priest though it is not the top tank it has some decent abilities; but, questing in PvE can be boring. I have heard people say that Champion/Priest makes a good tank, but I have never seen one in action so cannot speak to it.

    There are quite a few guilds that recruit new players. OBG mentioned above, Temperance, Sillyrabbits, Strawhats, Aurora, and Otaktay come to mind. I'm sure there are more. In your 'say' chat type in /join world (small w) for access to a global chat channel that does not cost diamonds and say you are looking to join a guild.
