Really ferals were complaing about this.. I was myself a little miffed when they gave mages my bloodlust but it turns out that its pretty nice. Not having to be the only one in charge of a BL is great if we have a Mage in the run.. if I go down or something having that back up is nice.And if your battle rez is the only thing getting you a spot in the run then you should reconsider the team you run with imo.

Class homogenation can be a good thing.

Personally, my issue is not so much that DKs are getting a battle res. It's that they can use it while tanking, and I (as a feral tank) can't.A Blood DK main tank will be able to say "I'm going to reposition the boss so I can res PlayerX," do so, hit their button, and go on with the fight.A Feral tank has to have an available off-tank to take the boss, or they're almost guaranteed to die in painful and messy ways upon dropping Bear Form and casting Rebirth (boss downtime mechanics and epic healer cooldowns notwithstanding).Ferals have always been balanced around having the great utility that the Druid class comes with, but I've never really seen any admission that Ferals have to work harder for that utility than any other spec/class. The only thing remotely similar had been Warrior stances, but the trend has been to make everything important usable in any stance as of late. Frequently, Bears just get stuck unable to take advantage of the group-saving abilities that other druid specs and other classes can access freely.

@madcobolstudent:Exactly. Blizzard is indirectly making things harder for druids (mostly ferals) with all this homogenizaton. I don't mind that DK's get Brez or that another healing class would get some kind of Tranquility spell. But if that's the case, then let us cast those specific utility spells while shapeshifted (Rebirth, Tranquility, Innervate and Remove Corruption come to mind).I'm sure there's going to be the "PvP, no can do" comment. But let's be honest, what other class that have these kind of spells has to temporarily disable their main abilities to use them?

The closest thing I can think of would be shadow priest being pulled out of shadow if they cast a Holy spell (cure disease counts). But then going out of shadow form isn't nearly as detrimental to the priest, and getting back in is pretty easy too. So I agree. I have a feral druid alt that I'm leveling up, and it is such a pain to cast thorns on myself every couple of minutes. (So I don't.)

RE: DKs getting Battle rez doable while tanking. They can introduce a glyph that lets us Brez while in bear. :D
