I have a level 73 tauren and a 58 nelf druid and have to say OMG they are fun. The tauren is feral and the nelf is balance. Here is the deal. I have a ton of other characters. My mains before WOTLK were a warlock and rogue. (both 70s all pvp s3-s4 gear)I leveled a DK to 80 just because it was new and he was fun. The druid however takes the cake in pwnage and versatility. There has not been a time playing the game for more then 30 mins where I have not had someone ask me to heal, tank or dps some instance. The "drood" need is unreal. ***As far as pvp***I am overly impressed with our burst damage. In those "I feel like ganking" days, most of my victims are at less then half health before they even get a chance to fight. Most of the time they try to run /grin. Throw a berserk just before the "pounce" and OMG that dead player is now cursing you out in their chat channels!! Why, because they just died in like 10 secs and prolly stun locked from my druid. Pounce and then maim once broken. Its funny dueling a rogue and have them yell cuz you stun locked them lol. Not as well as they can..but good enough to make them panic. Now my 73 druid has 3100+ AP at the moment. How crazy is this? Im getting 1500+ crits with my mangle and my ferocious bite at times crits 4200+.Adrenaline rush????I have been known to take out 2 allies at once ..same level...This is in a gank situation and have gotten kudos a number of times from other players seeing me do this. Beserk pounce take out one then root and heal and come back for the other. There is an ally shammy that seems to level the same rate I do and he has received many of gankings (again /grin) and its at the point once he sees me he now runs. I dont mean to sound pompus but there is this thrill of the hunt being in stealth, sneaking up watching your prey lol. Then pounce!! My brother watched me as went on a ganking spree one night and it changed his mind on druids ery quickly. He now rerolled a druid and is in love as well. You dont get all of the attacks the mimic'd players do, but you do get the "best of" imo. I can tank like a warrior dps like a rogue and when I get into trouble heal myself then come back to fight some more. A Druid would be to OP to have all the same rogue/warrior tricks AND able to heal.***My 3.1 concern****They are making the ticks crit which is nice, however Im thinking they are going to reduce our burst damage. Ive always switched forms during a fight a few times, cuz, well thats what druids do. I have the talents so I get the rage/energy back when I shift which fixed the long term damage issued people will qq about . If there is a nerf thats gonna really throw me as I depend on it and gain it back as I go from lion to bear back to lion to get my energy back. I mean I took the time to learn my class and play him well. But if the originating dps burst is reduced thats going to stink as my game plan is in the scraper!IMO---especially for those in raids, keep the ticks and burst. It would not be OP. It would just give the added long term dps the class needs for raids.****and a BIG fyiYou can drink and eat in animal form. (lion/bear/cheetah)Also in lion you can start to eat/drink then stealth. Just dont move.****Lastly****The Cat/Bear form look....pro---the enemy (players) dont know if you are a lvl 20 or 80 coming at them.con---you look like a level 20 at 80.Bliz really should consider an upgrade on these 2 forms where you can change atleast the color of the animal forms. OR OR ORWhat about animal armor as it levels???Kind of like flight vs epic flight. But we dont want our bear form tolook like the riding mount. Just an idea. Customization is always good and most of us dont like the idea of ever other player looking like us. It can be close, but we all like to be unique if possible.Thats my time thanks!--Ok Im sorry if this is off the wall sometimes but Im at work and typing as I get a chance.
