Nice article. Although, in regard to improved barkskin being mandatory for BG's, I have to disagree. Once you get better geared, survivability is not a problem at all in BG's.I'm specc'd and glyphed for PVE raid heals, and I'm way too lazy to respec everytime I PVP in WG or do the daily BG. But survivability is never an issue for me since getting a high level of resilience (i'm about 900 now). The only time I ever die is when significantly outnumbered. Yesterday I had a warrior and rogue chasing me around at a flag for several minutes before my mana bar got low and I had to dash away. No class (not even a well geared rogue) can consistantly kill me by themselves if I have my CD's ready and plenty of mana.Here's some PVP tips for other PVE specc'd druids w/o improved barkskin:-If you don't have the improved barskin talent, then a HUGE help is an idol you get from reg TOC: the black heart. Aside from the stam, it gives a nice 7k armor bonus when you start taking melee damage, which is huge if you're caught out of ToL form, esp by a rogue.-If you get snared (or death gripped) by any melee class, don't shift to travel form right away to escape. Pop nature's grasp and switch to bear form to get some distance b/w you and the melee class. -Don't pop your pvp trinket the second the rogue saps you (duh), and don't do it the second you start taking damage either b/c they have a second stun waiting for you. Hit barkskin, then be ready to pop your trinket and immediately warstomp afterward. Unless they have virtually no latency that usually gets them. Then you distace yourself and root/FF/MF them. At which point everyone and their cousin will enthusiastically start dps'ing the hell out of the vulnerable rogue.
