@Sterb, that talent is in the second tree of the Resto tier. As such, bear druids will not be able to put a single point in it until 81. We don't get to fill it out until 83. I know these changes don't happen until 4.0.3a, which is the Cataclysm patch but still.... while levelling up in dungeons, bears are going to be squishier to magical attacks.So now that Survival Instincts is basically Shield Wall, where's our Last Stand? Oh. We don't get one of those. Hrm.I understand that this change is supposed to make damage more equal across all tanking classes so bears are not the de facto tanking class. I don't want that. No one wants that. But I can't help but feel like this is instead going to make bears dead last in tanking like we were all through Wrath, whether it was justified or not. Whenever I'd queue up for a dungeon I always got "Oh wow, a bear!" or some surprised comment to that effect.I just feel like bears are getting the short end of the stick, again. I have faith and hope that Blizzard will be able to solve this but well. We'll see.
