Jul 13th 2009 7:15PM Amazing overview...
I've played a druid for over 4 years. I leveled balance (because I was crazy and stupid?) to 57...Was resto for raiding and only raiding...hell I never could have killed anything as resto if I wanted to...speccing for innervate.../ugh. I remember raiding and never being able to heal for crap as you could only have one kind of HoT spell on the target at once ...4 druids? the highest +healing would be the only one ticking...Thus I spammed healing touch rank 4 like it was my day job. I don't miss these days of attempted healing...other than I wish I could do them all over (legit) as feral. I raided BWL once innervate was trainable as 0/30/21...being sure to avoid leader of the pack so people didn't catch onto why my mana pool was 2K higher than every other druids. TBC gave me a shard of hope of being able to be compete with other classes as feral...but I must say...WoTLK gave me my shine...I've raided all the 25 mans being able to switch to whatever I please based on the needs of the group. My main job is to be feral dps...But I've tanked 25 naxx, I've Boomchickened it up...I've even healed. The class takes a lot of work if you want to be proficient and actually not suck...but being able to play all 4 roles...(better than the pure classes generally) gives me great enjoyment in the game. Roll a druid if you don't want to be bored or don't want to level alts...I'm just glad other people no longer have to go through the hell I did in leveling...those were dark times indeed.
