How I answer this question depends on the context.In terms of PVE content, nothing will ever usurp my druid; I enjoy healing and tanking raid content on him more than any other class I've ever played. No amount of nerfing, buffing, or mechanics changes will make me give up the cow!On the other hand, in PvP play, and arena specifically (yeah, there are people out there who do both extensively!) I'm struggling to justify continued use of my resto druid in the 3's bracket given my options for who I play with. One of my partners is a Protection Warrior, and the lack of a defensive dispel on our team necessitates the roots-break mechanic currently in place.The Prot Warrior nerf changes all that, so we're going to switch comps. I'll be playing my warlock in arena, my warrior is switching to his rogue, and our 3rd partner will heal on his shaman. I've never QQ'd on forums (here, arenajunkies, or otherwise) about these kinds of changes because I don't find it to be terribly productive. Most of the time it's just an outlet for blown steam by frustrated players, and I'm sure that it serves a purpose for them. I merely face a certain amount of ennui about the prospect of my already uncommon 3's comp being even less viable than it already wasn't. Okay, that sentence might not have made sense. Meh!TL;DR: I'll always play my druid for PVE, changes to PvP might dictate my arena choices without me screaming 'unfair.'
