sigh. I'm really tired of druids (moonkin in particular) being the redheaded stepchildren of Warcraft.

Now you see if you were a mage I could understand why you'd want that gig, especially if your stepfather was Knaak.But ya, seeing as you're a druid and what not... tough break brah... sucks to be redhead, yo?

Just because DOTs aren't a major part of the balance druid's damage doesn't mean the druid itself isn't going to do decent damage. Don't forget both Insect Swarm and Starfire now work kind of like Death Knight diseases (improving our direct damage from our main nukes) via the Improved Insect Swarm Talent. Glyphs haven't been revised yet and we could see that sort of thing (or other DOT buffs) go into Glyphs.

Well, depending on the player and with the sole exception of some seriously high end raiding (hard mode LK level players) moonkin are on a pretty even playing field with mages.A great moonkin can out damage even a solid mage. The issue is more that as the spec gets further and further in to content it becomes *less* interesting.As it stands, I'm using a single dot for the purpose of a small buff to my nuke I'm using with Eclipse and to keep a crit buff. Where as the spec used to use DoTs as a regular part of the rotation, they're just afterthoughts now.This isn't quite as bad as BC, where we just cast Starfire over and over again, but it still is a sad state to see what're currently talented spells fall off of use due to poor scaling.
