From what I've read there is a bit of a gearing gap in MC and BWL. Warriors are already seen as better tanks and they get real tank gear in all the raids, but you won't get feral druid gear until AQ. Supposedly you can work around lack of MC gear by working harder and stacking a shitload of consumables and stock up on as many https://classic.wowhead.com/item=9449/m ... r#comments as you can carry.

But I've never done it so iono. I'm going to try and see how far I can take a feral tank this time around. It seems viable but it also seems like more work.

Overall since it's alot harder to get raidspots as Feral, it's usually faster to stick with the guild until you start farming and then use your DKP on Feral while playing Resto.

As with most classes, alot of the best gear is not always from raids. But alot of "Feral gear" is not used by other classes, such as https://classic.wowhead.com/item=19358/draconic-maul / https://classic.wowhead.com/item=19146/ ... -stability / https://classic.wowhead.com/item=19405/ ... ed-bulwark / https://classic.wowhead.com/item=19396/ ... nhide-belt . So you will have easy to get pieces, maybe not the pieces other classes needs. But you should look at ( linked in viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1091 ) to see good pieces for feral druid.
But a pre-bis druid + some pieces from MC, BWL and ZG should easily get you AQ ready.
And ofc https://classic.wowhead.com/item=9449/m ... d-pummeler is bis on bosses but items like https://classic.wowhead.com/item=19358/draconic-maul are better for trash.

Druids can be competitive in MC + BWL. But the biggest problem with cat is, when other melee dps get new wepons, increasing the damage. Druids don't.
You will be able to find a raiding spot as druid. Alot of raids will just take what they can, so just be a good and nice player. That is most important in Classic, a good "name".
But as i said, you will fall of the damage meter, quickly. And when some people see that a pre-bis rogue does the same damage as a BWL geared druid, some guilds will drop you. Or you might have a guild that gets stuck in BWL, not able to progress AQ. There are alot of things that can and will happen.
So play, have fun, and be fun to play with. And you'll be just fine.

No boomkin is not a better choice. While feral DPS gear has a slump before AQ40, it's certainly not as bad as boomkin.
