To fuck with making it a glyph. Why not just make it something accessible on the action bar that you can still pick if you want to use the form? It could have no effect except for cosmetic reasons, but look at the class already. Does anyone really use seal *cough* ugly *cough* form that much? I mean it's useful for those rare times you are swimming but you don't see Blizz taking it away cause of its limited utility. They could just tie tree form to whatever new bark-skin talent they end up keeping or just leave it on the action bar as is without tying all the extra utility to it, sheesh.

Excellent article and thank you for the last paragraph / trying to be impartial.I can afford to be emotional because #1 I have nothing to lose, #2 I don't care what anybody thinks.I LOVE my Tree: When you see a Tree, you know it's a Druid and you have one of the best raid healers in the game. You know in PvP when you see a Tree it must be your focus because left alone your team is at a huge disadvantage. The Tree is a Druid form and what exactly is the gain for removing this Symbol of Nature.I can't help but feel that this is once again a PvE nerf to placate the crying of PvPers that can't kill a Tree in 3.3 seconds due to the armor bonus, high survivability, and immunities. I do not know for sure, but I am almost positive that all 3 of these traits will be removed with TOL, Blizzard will probably talent the +raid healing and spirit conversion, but any other benefits that we recieved in TOL will be pulled from the game.This change totally breaks my heart and one thing that I have learned from the Wild Growth and Circle of Healing nerfs is that once Blizzard makes an announcement they will go through with the plan and ignore any pleas from the community.RIP - TOL (December 5, 2006-November 14, 2010)

Um, Wild Colors, you quoted Big Bear Butt at the end, not yourself. Sweet plagiarism! Your post.>>What it brings is Treeform itself. What he just doesn’t seem to grasp is that Treeform, for a Restoration Druid, is a goal in and of itself. Not something to be pity Glyphed, but an outwards symbol of a Druid Healer’s resolve.">I know that Ghostcrawler seems to feel that the Treeform mechanic doesn’t add anything to the game, it doesn’t bring anything special to the Restoration Druid’s table.It does.What it brings is Treeform itself. What he just doesn’t seem to grasp is that Treeform, for a Restoration Druid, is a goal in and of itself. Not something to be pity Glyphed, but an outwards symbol of a Druid Healer’s resolve.

I have played every form of duid in end game content. I started as a moonkin back in BC when I could off tank in that form. I then switched to resto for wrath to fill in healing roles when I was recruited for my ability to heal heroics (in pre Naxx gear) without having the resto talents at all. I ended my playtime as a feral druid that could be top three dps in a 25 man PUG that would often end up being the main tank at the end of the fight (gotta love PUG tanks) My love of the druid stemmed from the ability to be diverse without having to retalent. The truth is, for a druid to really be what they are supposed to be, blizzard needs to implement talents in each tree that allow ALL forms to be used in a strategic manner. I agree with the cooldown polymorphs, I also agree that it wouldn't be TOO far fetched to do it to all forms. In summary, if you feel removing persistent forms takes from the class because you are a "shapeshifter" you are lying to yourself. Because, being a bear 24/7 isn't shifting shapes at all. It is simply being a bear.
