Decent post with some flaws:"- The problem atm is that Balance druids don't get any love and cannot find heroic/raid spots. No cc, lower dps and oom are just a few of the reasons moonkins are denied spots."Mostly true"- oom: can anybody tell me why we 're the only class that has to farm demonic runes from Dire Maul (lvl 60 dungeon) in order not to go oom at Lvl 70 raids?"Not true at all, I've played up to mid Tier 5 content and I've never farmed Demonic Runs and barely ever run out of mana during boss fights."- utility: moonkin aura is ok at best, everyone would prefer mage food to a small plus in crit."I think if it was a pick between +5% crit and water most people would pick the moonkin, but simply because mages do more DPS than moonkins would they bring the Mage along.You forgot to mention rez, Innervate, Off-heals as well as the aura."- utility: moonkin aura is ok at best, everyone would prefer mage food to a small plus in crit."This has happened to me countless times as well unfortunately."- our dps is again lower than mages/locks, that is what people in beta say"Don't base anything on what people say in the beta, hardly anyone has done level 80 raiding content yet not to mention they probably haven't finished balance all of the classes" for moonkins LW is nothing more than a money sink"With Leatherworking you can use Drums of Battle, War and Restoration to increase mana longevity or yours and your group's DPS, but I do agree with the Windhawk set comment. Blizzard has apparently been balance professions in the Beta as well though so don't worry."mages and locks don't shift into McDonalds clown form when they want to dps."lmaoWould like to reiterate other posters and say this:Druids CAN do Ranged DPS, Melee DPS, Healing AND tanking.Druids CANNOT do RDPS, MDPS, Healing AND Tanking with the same spec... competitively. It is NOT possible.Moonkins and Feral Cats are horribly sub-par at what they do in raids and Feral Bears aren't so great either.We are not asking to be better or the same as mages, warlocks or rogues but we want to be a valid choice for raids, not just for our utilities but for our personal skills and knowledge of the class we play.
