My guild Resurrection tries to run 25 mans with just one RestoDruid, sad I know. I think it’s because most of the boss guides out there recommend 2 Pallys, 2 Preists, 2 Shaman, and 1 Druid, with more Pallys or Priests on healing heavy fights. Because of this Uni-Tree approach I frequently compete with another Druid for my spot (until one of the slacker pallys is a no show then we run two). Unfortunately for me the guilds other raiding druid Xupiter is a golden boy, perfect attendance, better gear, nicer smile… So lately I’ve been put into a situation where I get to raid on the bosses that he doesn’t need anything from. Not the best situation to be sure but I can’t dedicate the time to get a primary spot anyways. On the plus side I get to raid mostly on farm bosses, so the repair bills are lower.
In order to facilitate this arrangement it has become necessary for me to generate a list of which bosses I need gear from. So lucky you I’m doing a 25 Man Resto Druid Gear Guide, for now I’ll stick with the content that we are currently working on.

Due to some technical difficulties and lack of raid spots I have not been able to raid since well before Christmas, with the exception of one quick run into Gruul’s Liar. Located in Blade’s Edge Mountain, Gruul’s is a 25 Man instance with two bosses and minimal trash. My guild Resurrection has had Gruul’s on farm for a few months now and I have picked up a few items, most recently Pauldrons of the Fallen Defender, which gets me Tier 4 Shoulders my first Tier piece since Molten Core.
The first boss In Gruul’s Lair is High King Maulgar. This ugly bugger is only about 5 trash pulls into the instance. Continuing the multi-tank theme that pervades the BC expansion this boss has 4 servants each of whom requires a tank. Besides standard tank classes (2 or 3 Warriors, maybe a Druid or two), you will need to use some less typical tanking classes, a Mage will definitely need to tank, and you may use two Hunters or Shaman as well.
