So Druids get a follow-up Q&A while hunters were skipped and still waiting on theirs. Very nice Blizzard.

Druids got a followup here because we had a lot of questions about PvP that were basically answered with 'shut up and spec resto'. Feral in particular wasn't really given any new information in the original post.Honestly, the attitude 'Stop wasting time with every other class and pay attention to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!' is getting tiresome. I'm sure Blizzard is perfectly capable of multitasking.

Hunters were not skipped. They just haven't gotten to them yet. And that follow up acknowledged that hunters lacked a PVP build. Which to me is a positive sign that the Devs are well aware that hunters need some love!!

Except that their answer is STILL "shut up and spec resto". Every single answer in this so-called follow-up could be replaced with "working as intended" and nothing would really change. My favorite part is the bit about positional requirements on Shred. They say that they won't remove them because it's a Backstab analogue, even though they've previously said that Mutilate is a Backstab replacement. Way to double-standard.

Daedelous...Would there be any positional requirements on a Feral Druid if it was removed from Shred? Rogues got one buff when it was dropped from Mutilate, and I believe Druids got one as well. How is that a double standard?Forget about the fact that Druids can tank, heal, cast and melee. Rogues are a pure class and only DPS. Yet I believe Rogues still have more positional requirements (Backstab, Ambush, Garrote, Gouge). If anything there should be more restrictions on the hybrid classes, not less. And I'm guessing that any Feral Druid gets the Cat Charge? Interesting, since Rogues have to spec deep into the Sub tree for the same ability. Nice that Druids get it just for being Druids.

lol doth mine eyes decieve me? A hunter QQing? I cannot believe it, that never happens.

I agree a bit with Arlen, although I acknowledge that Blizzard has mentioned in this followup that Hunters have no real decent PvP spec (Survival is the closest we have to one whilst the others suck a bit, and even then Survival isn't that good).

@Daedalus4096Ok so atm druids have to respec resto which you obviously don't want to do. Understandably that's annoying but what you're saying to all the hunters and locks and shammys is basically "screw you guys I know you can't pvp at all atm but I wan't to pvp as feral not heals" which is blatantly selfish QQ.Secondly what's with all the feral druid QQ about how rogues are easier to play/get better abilities. The really important thing is that so far noone has claimed feral dps is below rogue dps just that rogue dps is easier. Basically it boils down to "QQ I didn't roll a face-roll class make it easier for me GC" which is just childish if you can't play your spec/don't like your spec then just go reroll already stop whining about it.

Thanks for the down-rating.Yes, I've found that not EVERY Feral Druid gets the Cat Charge.I've also found out that it's actually Feral Charge, and is used by bears as well. And I've found that it's a 21 point talent, not 41 like in the Rogue's Sub tree.So... yeah... I'm pretty sure my baby Druid will spend the point on this one.

Daedalus4096: Total /sign. I could even agree with Arlen in the point that this followup was unneccessary, as GC basically just said "feral DPS is fine, L2P"

Look at all these Druids QQing more than the poor little hunter.Just QYB and be happy that you have identical stuns as rogues, shadowstep as a 21 talent point, 60 energy every 30 seconds with Tiger's fury, fear breaker and immunity with Berserk, polymorph and movement effect breakers, and you can heal.I'll enjoy it more next time I stunlock a feral druid to death before he even has time to shift into Flight form. What a bunch of cry babies.Thanks for the down-votes.
