You're right, druids can't tank, dps, or heal as well as the other classes, and it's like Das said, druids have horrible utility spells. My main is a 67 (come on 68, I want to fly!) druid and I've done the feral and resto spec (moonkin creeps me out, don't know why). As a bear tank, we have good hate generation, more armor and life than an equal-level, equal-geared warrior, but cannot crowd control, block, or generate rage nearly as well. As a cat, dps, crit chance, and dodge chance are on par with an equal-level/geared rogue, but no vanish, poison, stunlock, duel weilding, etc. Again, I've never tried moonkin form, but I can't imagine it being anywhere near the DPS of a mage. As a tree, druids can dish out some serious HoTs, but no burst healing, no threat reduction, poor mana generation while casting, and a 30 min cooldown, reagent requiring rez, FTL. So all in all, we're not really superior at any one thing, but we can do a little of everything, that's the point of a hybrid class. That's why I play one. My main friends in Wow are a fury warrior, a holy paladin, and a destruction warlock, so being able to fill multiple roles really comes in handy. By the way, feral druid + warlock = neverending carnage. After a couple fights I switch out, throw a Rejuv on myself, and then all of my HoT's on my friend as he mana taps, and then it's right back into the fray.
