Mangle has a 100 yard range. 100. I laughed when I saw that on my baby druid in the beta. I do really like that it is available immediately at level 10, though. The trees mostly seem lackluster, so far, but they are not final and will very likely see a lot of polishing before everything is said and done.

From a Feral who was raided through icc25 hms the new tree look incredibly bad for feral dps in general, from the current setup ive had to put 17 points into utility, out of 41 points that is truly bad lol, here's my current build going into the beta...http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?druid#f1uhNG7Z,,12479

BM Hunters Frenzy is weird too. Rank 2 and 3 is 2% respectively 3% attack speed. I'd just keep it on rank 1, for 100% attack speed :P

That is pretty much the build I am working on for my baby druid in the beta. I'm not going to say I'm bitterly disappointed, not unless they do not change.

@TankizgayI agree. In building a feral dps build I found myself being forced to take talents that, while I think would be very useful in leveling and PvP, had little (not zero, just little) raid utility. I would be severely disappointed, especially since I want to go cat this expansion, but it's the first iteration of this new design... so I'll not be disappointed just yet :D

What I found interesting is that the classes I was quite familiar with (dk is main and priest is main-alt), I found the talent trees mildy underwhelming as well (and yes I know dks aren't done).But then I went to a class I wasn't as familiar with and found them to be quite a breath of fresh air. Instead of looking at these massive trees with all what seemed like 2000 buttons, everything was concise, and every talent seemed to have some meaning and purpose.I think in the end, people who have been playing certain classes a long time will probably find the new talent system fairly lackluster, (though I'm sure we'll see more ways to deviate from the cookie cutter build in newer beta patches) but for people rolling alts on classes theyve never played, this will surely be a godsend.

Oh, good I am not the only kitty that was a little disappointed that bears got more love. It is early though, so hopefully feral will be more balanced at release. I will say though, nom nom nom makes me smile. That talent wins best name, hands down.

I would have taking nurturing instincts instead of Thick Hide - If you're going for a pure cat PVE raid set, how often are you going to get physically hit that you need the armor vs the extra healing coming in? The extra healing helps with any sort of damage as well, the armor only helps with physical

The Druid talents need a lot of work. You can get all the useful pve cat AND bear talents and still have a point left over. But, maybe they don't want ferals to have a seperate cat and bear spec after all?http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?druid#f1tYYx3z,,12479

@tankizgaySo basically we have a Kitty Druid whose name is "tanking is gay", and we are supposed to consider anything you say? Wow.Are you stupid, homophobic, or both?Good job WOW.com, nice user names. If tankizgay is doing it, then I guess I will come up with a cool handle to let every know how rad I am. Maybe I will name him "healingizwomanswork" or how about "goblinzBthenegoresofazeroth". Since anything goes? Right wow.com? Right?

@ Ezek, I agree that the user name shouldn't be allowed, but it's hardly wow.com's fault. Just report it, and be done with it. Raging achieves nothing.

@ grothOkely. Sounds like a plan. Now if I only knew how to report these things.......

@EzekAt the bottom of the comment where you see the red and green boxes for rating a comment up and down, there is an exclamation point. That's how you report things. :)
