I guess my real complaint is the difference, usability and convenience of Warstomp when compared to the Night Elf Racial: Shadowmeld. I have both a lvl 80 Tauren Druid, and a lvl 80 Night Elf Druid. When I discovered what exactly Shadowmeld did for you in various occasions, I nearly crapped my fur; you go invisible even in combat, and not only that - you drop combat altogether. That means in combat you hit Shadowmeld, flight form, and float away scott free. In a boss fight - The feces hits the fan: everyone is down and you as the druid tank are the last one standing - you find a corner, hit shadowmeld, the boss says "wtf?! oh well I guess he was never here. I'm going to despawn" and the encounter resets. !!!!!!!!!!!!! The best racial EVER (imvho) !!!!!!! Upon rolling a tauren on another server I somewhat expected the racials to be comparably useful as Druids because "why wouldn't they be?". In Bear Form Warstomp shifts you out of Bear form, drops all of the rage you had previously built up, requires you obviously, to switch back into bear negating the benefits of using the warstomp in the first place to a certain extent. 2 sec stun, diminishing returns, and 2 minute cooldown. I realize this is a wall text crit, and may be perceived as a mass QQ explosion. But this is my point of view from both sides of the Druid Tank Racial abilities. If I'm wrong or I'm the only one who feels this way please vote it down.
