Nov 11th 2009 5:12AM I am main specced as a bear tank. My off spec is Resto. This article resonated with me on lots of points. It does get boring tanking as a bear, you don't look cooler than a lvl 10 90% of the time, and when you are in caster you look like a circus character. At least all that dumb melee DPS gear I'm forced to tank in gives me higher DPS that other tanks in the guild. I can easily pull 3k DPS on a single target in bear form, and when I go kitty I do around 3.5k or so.
I didn't realize how neglected bear druids have been until I read this though. The amount of neglect bears get makes me frustrated...butI think I'll keep tanking as a bear though, just because I'm too lazy to level a paladin or warrior, which would definitely be a better tank. I am beginning to understand why lots of people I know stopped playing Wow recently for other games. Blizzard has made a reputation for themselves since Wrath came out of not really ever getting anything right. Horrid looking T9 gear, classes have become less special than before, too much competition for gear, class favoritism, and being forced to offspec waaay too often if you are a hybrid class, especially druid.

Mar 9th 2009 1:26PM i agree with huey2k2...
while all the ideas in this article are great...in the end....I'd probably just end up telling people that I'm gonna find people who want to do the hard mode, and that they will be invited over people who want to just skate by on easy mode. Of course, if it's a gear issue, then easy mode is mandatory until everyone is geared enough for hard mode. But if thats not an issue.....they can feel free to find a different guild that meets their laziness if they like, other people want to actually have a challenge and they are hindering progress.

You tell them dude. I totally agree with you....and if ppl are too short-sighted to see your point, then they can feel free to play other games....or *gasp* go outside.
Feb 4th 2009 1:08PM Well, I don't to arenas....but from the way you explain it.....it certainly does sound like the new system of arenas is a big bucket of Kentucky Fried Fail.
Jan 21st 2009 5:38PM Robert M is sooo dead on, imho.
Blizzard seems to focused on more subscribers to actually focus on game quality these days.
Jan 21st 2009 5:26PM my trinket is bugged. the Majestic Dragon Figurine. It's is supposed to add 18 spirit per cast and stack 10 times....and keep refreshing every time i cast again.
However.....it doesn't. It worked BEFORE the patch, but now it's broken. All in all, i'd say this patch made WoW less fun to play, rather than a better game. I'm sure someone at Blizzard is taking heat, or (hopefully) getting replaced with someone that knows what they are doing.

" Now that EVERY warrior will be DPS/tank specced, who's gonna want a PUG tank when one of their Fury warrior friends can just switch specs and jump into tank gear? Nobody. That's who. QQ for me and the rest in my boat."
dude I understand what you mean, but you really have no reason to be concerned. Just because warriors will be able to switch between dps and tanking now, doesn't mean that all warriors are gonna WANT to do that. Tanking is boring for lots of people believe it or not! The thrill of maximizing dps is MUCH more appealing to lots of people! I personally don't think you have any trouble finding a group as a tank. There is SUCH a HUGE shortage on tanks right now (depending on time of day/server), I'd be surprised if there are ever too many tanks to go around lols.
