Welcome aboard! I also am a big fan of the Fluid Druid :). As of now with the 4.0.6 changes I am thinking if rerolling. Since I primarily Arena, I did some research on what the top 3's teams are comprised of and currently Shamans (resto) is #1 followed by priests, mages, and rogues. While there are some Druids in there I didn't see anything but trees in the top twenty in the three battlegroups I sampled. My questions are do you see a future for feral in arena in 4.0.6? How do we adjust? And if not what class more closely resembles feral? Rogue or warrior or even shammy?

I wanted to add the breakdown from the three battlegroups I counted as of 1/31:Bloodlust, Shadowburn, and Stormstrike32 Shamans, 29 Locks, 23 Mages, 19 Rogues, 17 Priests, 14 Druids, 13 DKs, 11 Palis, 9 Warriors.I did a quick hover over the shamans, druids, priests and palis- and all of them tended to be resto. I went over all the druids and they were all trees except Emhealz and Tensai (though I suspect they were in offspec).

Gerr, My next column will have a bit more about the PvP outlook for ferals. It's not so good.

On the contrary, Alaron. Ferals should be underpowered so when I do eventually make a comeback I get to feel smug and superior every time I actually manage to make a kill in world pvp. Just like the old days. There'll be a "Feral Truce" and we'll meet opposing-faction ferals in Moonglade and /bow to each other.Not joking. I'd rather play an underpowered spec, but I understand that the people who live for arena don't feel that way. To each their own.
