At least they're -thinking- about a minor glyph. I like the new talent for Regrowth, and the CD for ToL is okay and all ,but what really peeved me is they were taking the form away and giving into the people that screamed "TREE OF LIFE IS TERRIBLE OH MY GOD GTFO"(I know this'll get me a downrate, but, really, that's most likely the reason, contrary to what they said).If i had to give up my Glyph of Aquatic Form just to stay in ToL; so be it. 100% increase in water < Tree of Life. I hope others feel this way, and, again. I'm not that mad at the Druids not getting new heal-y spells, I'm just mad about my little tree being taken away!

Thank you Sargenus...I just got my Tree to level 60 and I love it. The tree was the specific reason I leveled a resto in the first place...first time I ever saw one /dance or /cower...I fell in love!I could play a healer in quite a few other classes, but I chose a Druid because of the fact I get to have a different form. Priest healer? Same. Pally, same. Druid is the only class that gets to LOOK different than any other NE or Cow out there (not counting Metamorphosis, since I didn't level that class specifically to look like a demon...)

Technically, they've been consistently been giving in to the players that wanted to constantly be in tree form. Originally, of course, there was no moonkin or tree form. Then they added them both. Tree form was only able to cast hots and regrowth, and had a movement speed decrease.They later added Remove Curse and Abolish Poison, removing a reason for caster form, and finally killed caster form altogether with Wrath, by allowing all restoration spells to be used in Tree Form (namely Healing Touch and later Nourish), and removed the slower movement. This took away any negatives that Tree Form had, while still allowing it immunity to most cc and giving extra armor.The way I see it, they're finally breaking away from catering to the "full Tree Form" crowd.

I don't wamt to lose my main's defining form. I put up with hell being a huge cow in tiny cramped dungeons like Stockades where you couldn't see what was happening around you. I levelled up through Mara dodging slimy slugs knowing that my tree form was getting closer.Then, in Dire Maul I dinged 60, stopped the party and quickly spent my point just to become a tree.From that first time I saw one jumping around throwning heals I fell in love.Making it a glyph? No, that is second rate and I like swimming faster.Hmmm, GC says he tested the water and (implies) a few people liked the idea of getting rid of the form. I don't recall anything like that being asked. Was it a forum thing only? Maybe done by other classes and also kitties and bears?All around a huge BOO for destroying what I found the most fun and defining. Makes no sense that bears, spirit wolves, travel form, kitties, boomkin stay. Lets all look like cows.

@Jay And yet, ironically, when Blizzard was discussing druid changes oh so long ago, in very general terms, I remember quite clearly plenty of druids saying that they didn't like that they never get to show off their armor, that upgrades aren't reflected in what they look like, that some of them were tired of seeing the same thing all the time.The problem is, there are people on BOTH sides of the issue, which is basically what the CM has said, and when a decision is made, you hear the complaining from the side that doesn't like what's happening. You're not going to hear people who like the change complaining. They're sitting at home going "FINALLY, thank you!" and don't feel the desire to post about it.I don't care about the tree form one way or the other, to be honest, but I think it's unfair for people to think that Blizzard isn't looking at everyone's opinions. Like they said, you have the right to not like the change and be upset, but don't think that everyone feels exactly the same way.
