To Heilig:You have clearly never fully leveled a Druid and tried differing talent specs. As a resto Druid shifting into Dire Bear is not like tossing on Plate all of a sudden. Dire Bear for a resto or balance Druid does not suddenly turn me into a viable Tank. It is more like putting up a Priest's PW:S to reduce incoming MELEE damage (emphasis on melee as armor only mitigates physical damage) when running away from unwanted or unmanageable aggro. Effectiveness in forms is largely spec and gear defendant. To be remotely effective in bear or cat you need to wear Rogue leathers, not caster leathers required for balance or resto specced Druids. Note also that to heal ourselves we can only be in our standard race form or in Tree of Life form. To cast balance damage spells the druid can only be in standard race form or Boomkin form. The Boomkin and Tree of life forms are part of their respective talent trees and require deep enough commitment that they do not allow very much cross-over utility if multi-speccing with another talent tree (i.e. restokin).In the future please try to garner a full and complete understanding of a class before commenting on it. Just cause when you PvP the "kitty says BOOM" and you roll over and die does not mean that Druids are OP. Learn to play your class and get some better gear while you are at it. If you want to QQ about healers that are hard to kill then QQ about the healer class that ACTUALLY WEARS PLATE!~Elzreth:Staghelm
