As a disc priest, I really enjoy healing bear druids, because of the way my heals work and the synergy they have with the talent rapture. The more effective my heals are, the more mana I get back. Hopefully this buff will make for more feral druids, specifically the tanking kind. Plus fairly geared druids in epics are hitting 50k health raid buffed, which honestly, makes them fine in my opinion. The extra damage they take isn't very bad when they have such a health buffer.

50k is an impressive number but I can tell you with much confidence that this druid is probably stacking the wrong gems/enchants. Druids don't take more damage thanks to SoTF, high armor, barkskin. I, personally, stack agility to help mitigate all damage possible. I'm sure if I threw in +24 stam gems I could get close to 50k raid buffed but that's not the point of druid tanks. Our health pools are very large but it's the armor and dodge that make us effective tanks.As to feral tanks overall, I find that I have absolutely no problem with threat at all. I was tanking heroics about 2 hours after I hit 80 and I still to this day have not had a problem once with 1 pulls and 6 pulls. The swipe threat increase is a joke, and unnecessary for good bears. I've MTed Naxx 10 and OTed Naxx 25 and I can't say that I've let anyone die due to threat issues besides an overzealous Warlock or Mage every now and again. Feral is not the easiest tank class to play, but by all means, it's not hard.
