Feb 6th 2007 7:56PM You're right, druids can't tank, dps, or heal as well as the other classes, and it's like Das said, druids have horrible utility spells. My main is a 67 (come on 68, I want to fly!) druid and I've done the feral and resto spec (moonkin creeps me out, don't know why).
As a bear tank, we have good hate generation, more armor and life than an equal-level, equal-geared warrior, but cannot crowd control, block, or generate rage nearly as well.
As a cat, dps, crit chance, and dodge chance are on par with an equal-level/geared rogue, but no vanish, poison, stunlock, duel weilding, etc.
Again, I've never tried moonkin form, but I can't imagine it being anywhere near the DPS of a mage.
As a tree, druids can dish out some serious HoTs, but no burst healing, no threat reduction, poor mana generation while casting, and a 30 min cooldown, reagent requiring rez, FTL.
So all in all, we're not really superior at any one thing, but we can do a little of everything, that's the point of a hybrid class. That's why I play one. My main friends in Wow are a fury warrior, a holy paladin, and a destruction warlock, so being able to fill multiple roles really comes in handy. By the way, feral druid + warlock = neverending carnage. After a couple fights I switch out, throw a Rejuv on myself, and then all of my HoT's on my friend as he mana taps, and then it's right back into the fray.

Nov 30th 2006 9:22PM I have the N52 gamepad, and I've been nothing but pleased with what it can do. Programmable macros, FTW! I have a laptop and the keyboard isn't exactly ergonomic, so I went out and got the N52. It works perfectly for anything I might be doing. First Person Shooters, WoW, I even have a profile saved for Windows that has "copy" and "paste" linked to single buttons. Plus with the blue, green, red, and standard modes, you have a lot of programming options. My main is a Druid and one of my buttons casts MoTW and Thorns on everyone in my party, individually/automatically, while another shifts into cat form, stealths, and tracks humanoids. Very cool. Also, the included software is easy to use and switching between profiles can be done by right-clicking the icon in the task bar. If you're looking for a gamepad I highly recommend this one.
