Ya and he is talkin about "played" time, as in 26-48 hours. Not someone sitting down for a few hours for 2 days and getting to 70....

Druids are still insanely overpowered especially in 2v2's.
  1. Pounce stun 3 seconds.
  2. Feral charge 4 seconds.
  3. Bash Bash 4 seconds.
  4. Cyclone 6 seconds.
  5. Entangling roots 6-10 seconds immobilized +dmg tick.
  6. Nature's grasp 35% chance to cast entangling roots on target when struck (talents it can be 100%)

That plus fast movement and impossible to keep snared/rooted?

Not to mention they can heal up while beat on in bear using rage!

Then switch out and throw hots up while your stunned and switch right back!
Why should the game be balanced around Arenas (especially 2v2) when that is less then a 1/3 of the game? I'm sick of classes being nerfed or buffed because someone got owned 1v1 or 2v2.

And its not likely an Druid is going to be pulling off all of those abilities you mentions. Not while having mana left to heal (which is their purpose in Arenas).

So I start out in cat form stealthed (which everyone can see from 10 yeards away), and I pounce you, then what, I shift to bear form and run away so I can Feral Charge you? Then, I shift out of bear for then back into bear form so I can Bash you? There's 2k mana gone and all I did was stun you for 3-4 secs. Bash and Pounce share a diminishing return. Plus, during this time I'm not healing. Feral Charge isn't a stun, you have full control of your character, same with Entangling Roots (which does what 600 damage over 20 secs?) and Nature's Grasp which shares a diminishing return with Entangling Roots. Cyclone isn't a guaranteed 6 secs, I've had it drop in less time than it took me to cast it. My bear form heal is a not a life saver. A 250hp tick when I'm getting hit for 800-1200 white damage? And while the healer (me) is sitting there meleeing someone as a Resto, who is healing my partner?

I don't really play WoW anymore, mainly because of all the whining. Funny someone saying that Fear is fine while complaining about Druid CC. Even, Warlock's hate Fear, they just don't have anything else. If you find yourself being stunlocked by a Druid... you have issues.

Indeed. In any case, some of us stopped playing WoW when BC was released, but some didn't and it's obviously the majority that liked the BC changes...

It's been done in 1 day and 2 hours, completely legit. There's just a certain trick to doing it.

Haha! Sweet...here we go.

10: Patch 2.4 took out almost all atunements. This game PvE wise is SO FREAKING EASY. Stop crying, in my opinion.

9: See the above crying comment. Druids were so OP before those nerfs.

8: Again, it is so easy to get gear in this game (every tried playing EQ??) Be happy that your class can do more then one thing... Although, I would love free respecs

7: This guy loves druids...I don't know about you, but I have been two shotted by a 'boomkin'. Learn to Play...or try to play a warrior after being chain rooted...

6: Perhaps...but do be honest...Battlegrounds aren't the only form of PvP. Go out and PvP outside of BGs...you'll see a lot of new places, I'm sure.

5: Money is so easy to get now. I can get hundreds of gold a day in like two hours or less. The guy even has a warlock. Learn to freaking play.

4: LMAO. Wow...I would actually love to destroy gnome healers.

3: Fear is not OP. For christ sakes, it is so easy to get out of. People just panick when they lose control of their character for a few seconds and give up. I have a 70 warlock as well, and I don't know how many times I have been horribly maimed after fearing and seeing immune, or having it break a second after it works and getting an axe to the face. AND, immagine how bad locks would be without fear. (and death coil...)

2: ....Does this guy want to have everything handed to him? You can level a 70 in two months of casual play, easy. I just did it in like a month and a half and I work quite a bit and go to school full time. Suck more.

1: Let me get this straight, you think leveling an alt is difficult, but wouldn't mind getting camped by a rogue in the middle of a city... If you want world PvP, go get a group of friends, go to some random little town...and camp it...70s will come within 30 mins. I have started mini-wars in STV with my rogue single handedly...you can get some cool skirmishes going...you just have to piss some people off.

....oh boy.

This guy made me lol...


10) Attunement is neccessary to keep the nubs out of raids.
9) Take a Druid into arenas, then tell me they got nerfed.
8) Call the whambulence, seriously.
7) I have a moonkin friend that out dps's his entire guild.
6) PvP maps? Maybe he has a point there. I personally would rather see Blizz concentrate on improving the game in other aspects rather than adding new maps.
5) At 15g per quest in outland a flying mount is not hard to get. Could you imagine Azeroth with flying mounts, what a joke.
4) GNOMES LOL. Why not let Orcs be priests, same concept.
3) You don't like fear? Play a warrior.
2) What do you want? Free 70's for all!!
1) This guy should probably come to a real PvP server. He probably plays on Malfurion and doesnt even know it.

Money quotes:

Quote:
Now why did Blizzard decide to screw over druids? They did it because of the whining on the part of various other classes in the World of Warcraft discussion forums.
Quote:
But is Blizzard listening? Not according to much of the talk in the World of Warcraft general discussion forums.
When other players bring up issues, it's whining. When he wants to moan about something, it's talk.

Typical WoW Forum troller.....Just like me
