"Restoration: Disentanglement (new specialization): Causes shapeshifting to remove roots in addition to snares."As a resto druid, all I can say is thank god Blizzard decided to exempt us from this MASSIVE nerf intended for feral druids.

As I resto druid too, I wholeheartedly agree although I am a but curious about why Balance didnt get this too, they need the mobility more than us resto druids.

Edit: I meant bit not but in the sentence, "... a bit curious about..."

The loss of being able to remove a root in PvE as a Balance Druid is the second to last straw (along with the convoluted Eclipse/Mastery changes - having to now re-gem and re-enchant for Mastery versus Crit - and possible loss of immunity to polymorph - or did Blizzard enable this nerf already) that I actually stopped playing my Druid(s) and started to level my DK and Pally instead. Right now, being a Balance Druid is so out of balance that it doesn't feel fun to me anymore. It bothers me that PvP mechanic balancing affects PvE so much when I don't PvP.

Guess were going back to TBC with one viable PvP spec; resto.

@Xesar, I completely agree, that oomkins need a buff in mobility and mana management (euphoria isn't that great in PvP because of the eclipse mechanic) as far as PvP is concered but in PvE they really arent as bad as some say. While I am not some amazingly geared oomkin (its my OS, MS resto) and not skilled for sure, I have seen oomkins in heroic gear pulling #1 dps in heroics - Granted, that could be simply because everyone else sucked but I dont think they are THAT bad off.@ManadarThis is not TBC at all, feral druids can tear their opponents to shreds easily and while resto druids are strong they are not at all as they were in TBC. Pallies are still top dog and I have heard too that shamans are significantly stronger then druids too. Balance is the only bad spec right now and really, that isnt new.

Uprating for the sheer win of your profile pic. That was a GREAT game.

Manadar... Just because you can't get out of roots, the other specs aren't viable?

Take heart, my owlbear friendsWith all the changes to wild mushroom, you're getting an instant cast aoe snare. You better get it hotkeyed soon because if you're not using it after 4.0.6, you're doing it wrong.
