this is going to seem like trolling but that isnt my intent, i just have to state some frustration with statements like this one:"As I've written previously, the druid functions as the proverbial canary in the coal mine as a harbinger of class balance concerns"as a hunter, i have to roll my eyes when i see other classes, especially a hybrid, complain about balance issues when they are clearly ahead of the curve in many instances (i would rather have a tree than any other healer, feral dps can be absolutely insane and though maybe less popular druid tanks are reliable). i have a hard time looking at a class like druid or pally and taking any complaint about anything they say seriously, its the king complaining about the filet mignon being a little rare for their taste to a peasent who is eating semi-raw chicken off the bone. my goal isnt to turn this into a discussion about hunters, but consider the abuse other classes take from patches before making statments like "trees are second banana healers" when in my years of playing i havent ever encountered that. a good druid can top charts in whatever roll they choose, at that point, your ability to complain about anything goes right out the window.

I think what he meant was that, owing to the ease with which one can respec a druid from tank to healer or dps, when there exists an imbalance of classes at endgame (e.g. when there are a shedload of tanks wandering around), druids are likely to respec away from tank to something more in demand.He wasn't in any way complaining about the state of the druid, merely commenting on the fact that owing to fluidity of purpose trends in druid specs give a good indicator of more general problems of class distribution. (i.e. the bear is disappearing not because it's bad, but because healers are much more in demand than tanks at the moment).
