I've been playing balance since BC (back when our only AOE had a cooldown) and I'm pretty bored of the form. Unless they're gonna refresh it, they should make it so you morph whenever eclipse procs. It'll still be up a lot I suppose, but at least I can check out my pimpin gear every once in a while in combat.
Improved Tranquil + upgraded Barkskin = immortal ? :oOh yeh, and I wonder if it will be any use of haste gear for resto druids in pvp from now on, cos Naturalist will reduce nourish cast time for 0.5sec and 10% haste from GotE will make casting pretty fast imo
are you F'n kidding me? feral gets a decent boost, balance gets a huge boost, and resto gets heavily nerfed, WTF?
Para as far as the zerk +12 energy goes... Do you think this might be extra fudge room due to haste's effect on energy regen?
I for one am pretty stoked about Druid changes (and Cataclysm in general) and will surely return to check what's going on.A few observations/thoughts:Balance
im gonna love feral bears >=D
as a resto druid myself i am relay worried about the changes to tree of lifeit seem to be a longer cd, less powerful vision of Avenging Wrath with a slow debuff and i know it lasts longer but the longer cd makes it less useful (i realize that u can get it down to 4:30 with imp tree, but it doesn't seem worth it for the extra 15% damage, damage is not my biggest concern as a healer that is not hit capped) if a fight lasts 10 mins :-Avenging Wrath is 20% for 20 secs and 3 min cd = 1min up time tree of life is 15% for 45 secs and 5 min cd = 1min 30 sec up time not a huge differencebut u also have to factor in the -50% movement speed so on fight were the raid has to move out of things ie fire, Well of Corruption, void zones the druid in tree form will take twice as long to get out there for taking twice as much damage but his healing is only increased by 15%
Tree of life... Damage? WTF? Really? TOL going back to BC with the 50% movement debuff, they make it a cd AND add the little note about damage? Who in their right mind would blow a 5min cooldown to give a boss splinters? This is retarded, the idea of druids is that they Shape Shift! Druids are NOT Shamans! SAVE THE TREES!
