PvP, Spells and Talents
One of the techniques demonstrated by Gronzy in his Restoration Druid Arena Video was the use of Cyclone spam. Assuming your chosen target won’t or can’t use his trinket to dispel the effect, you can effectively lock a caster out of play for 10.5 seconds (6 + 3 + 1.5). This sort of efficiency takes some time to intuit since you have to begin your recast before the target has broken free, and can easily lock you out of play for the duration. However, you can set up a macro that will allow you to divert your attention to other tasks (such as healing your teammates) rather than solely keeping an opponent incapacitated:
/cast [target=focus] Cyclone
The first time you target someone and press this button, it will set them as a focus. What this means is that you can perform actions upon them without having to switch back to them as your target, allowing you to target someone else for another purpose. Pressing this button again will recyclone your original target (the one you set focus to) without changing your current target. To change the person with whom your button is associated, target someone else and right click the button (this refers to the “/clearfocus [button:2]” line). Your focus will automatically clear should your focus die or leave your arena instance.
This macro (adapted from one of those listed at WoWWiki.com) can greatly enhance a Restoration druid’s efforts to assist her team with crowd control while not hindering her ability to heal teammates (or herself).
