So they nerf feral druid dps because it isn't fair to warriors... but deathknights get to tank and DPS in any tree at the same time no gear changes?Bow to the will of the death knight now because Blizzard plans on making them over powered.

The article didn't mention anything about not needing gear changes or how tank DPS is. It's entirely possible that Death Knight tanking will require so many talent points that DPS suffers, and/or that it requires tanking specific gear.It's entirely too early to QQ about Death Knight tank DPS.

The plan for ferals is to have the tree viable for tanking or DPS, but not necessarily at the same time. Same thing with DKs: any DK tree can tank or DPS, but no specific build will excel at BOTH jobs at the same time.

Most of my concern comes from what I've heard from my friends in the beta(i wasn't lucky enough) Death knights are currently over-powered. To quote them: "Burst like a frost mage, sustained damage of a rogue, tank like a warrior, and heal themselves for as much a healer" I'm not sure how true these are, but I definitely consider these people very reliable resources. When it comes down to it I guess we will see when it comes out.

Blood is the dedicated DPS tree from my experiences playing so far.And, if you will read back to everything said about tanking in the expansion, ALL tanks will have their DPS increased beyond what it is currently. The druid problem isn't going to be DPS, it's going to be itemization.

Cameron, that's exactly what I'm worry they will be here, my suspicion is since they are the shiny new character on the block they'll be getting a lot of love so will be overpowered.I'll have to wait and see, since things are dead at the moment since the guild can't even get enough I'm getting deep into old EQ2, so far it feels more traditional fantasy, if when WotLK comes out my warrior tank is second rate I think he'll go into permanent retirement, I really have no interest in grinding through the solo fest levels of WoW again to pick a new main.I'm hoping here that WaR delivers the PVP fix that a protection warrior/shadow priest/affliction warlock in BG's failed to deliver.(And yep - those are all three of my alts and I'm not grinding for 50g a time to pay to respec to a completely different spec in BG's just to PVP since I think its retarded game design that two DPS spec's can't pvp thanks to the resilience/dot nerfing).
