Which one's really OP? Warriors are in like 6/9 of the top team combos.

Exactly! The druid forums are constantly barraged with "nerf druids" threads because of 2v2 but what these people seem to forget is druids are horrible in 5v5 and just OK in 3v3. And yet Warriors are good in every bracket.

The game should not be balanced around how good the top 50 are, a more proper representation would be top 100, or just teams over 2200. There is some bias in the fact that, there are a higher percent of warlocks in the top 100, or in 2200+, but this guy decides to use top 50... I guess I understand that, him playing a warlock as his main and all.(just don't take everything he says as fact)Here are a better representation of how wow is balanced.*~_TOP 100 ARENA PLAYERS IN THE WORLD_~*24% Druid (used to be warrior for the longest time)19% Warrior17% Warlocks (2% lower than Warriors(was 19% last week))16% Priest12% Rogue6% Hunter4% paladin1% Mage1% Shaman http://www.sk-gaming.com/arena/player/all/all/all/all/As you can see Druids AND Warriors need a nerf, and even though MOST warlocks don't admit it they do also.Heres another set of data to further my point.2v2 Teams over 2200Warrior/Druid 25.8%Warlock/Druid 16.2%Rogue/Priest 11.6%Hunter/Druid 6.5%Rogue/Druid 5.8%Warlock/Priest 5.1%(Just top 6 combos)http://www.sk-gaming.com/arena/2/all/all/all/all/So just taking into calculation the top 6 class combosDruids are on 53.4%+ of 2v2 teams over 2200.Warriors are on 25.8%+ of 2v2 teams over 2200.Warlocks are on 21.3%+ of 2v2 teams over 2200.So warlocks are fairly close to warriors as far as being "Over powered", while druids blow both of these classes out of the water.If this data isn't enough to sway your mind and your argument to this is that I am not showing the amount of each class at level 70, here they are.Warrior 14% (I hate warriors, but most played should probably be top if balanced)Hunter 13%Mage 13%Rogues 11%Warlock 11%Priest 11%Paladin 10%Druid 10% (almost at bottom, yet top of arena???)Shaman 8%http://www.warcraftrealms.com/census.php?PHPSESSID=88735710d2d54405d613cf18804233e9&serverid=-1&factionid=-1&minlevel=70&maxlevel=70&servertypeid=-1

I don't see why people say Druids need a nerf - I play one (as an alt - my main is a warlock). They have several weaknesses - people complain about their hots - you know their dispellable/stealable right? Even if you trigger lifebloom by doing so they are wasting mana. Even innervate is stealable, dispellable - yes you read correctly.The more you can make a druid change forms the better - even with talents that a bunch of mana each time it happens.So the strat is simple - spam them with coe (druids always shift if they have a slowing effect on them), silence effects, mana burn and keep dots up at all times = dead druid.And remember - even though its mildly hard to kill a druid I'd honestly like to see one thats good at offense ability. All boomkins I've run into were a free hk, same with feral druids.

Druid's are NOT OP!Think about it, 5vs5 arena gives more arena points, and all classes (exept rogues) have more % in the 5vs5 arena fights.Btw, since when does it means that, coz some class gets to happear more frequently on a arena team means that its an OP class?

I play neither a warrior or a druid and I wouldn't say it is overpowered. Every combo has its countercombos and as a SP/rogue we generally beat warrior druids. It's never going to be perfectly balanced and I don't see how anyone can expect it to be
