I mean yeah, its biased obviously, its based on my opinion what of it. I’ve played this game longer than you were in diapers for, I’m pretty old & Jaded when it comes to wow knowledge, but still more up to date than your average joe by every means and any means and thats all that matters (to me). You’re welcome to disagree, I’m just giving my opinion.
I was just contributing to the Original poster, idc what anyone else has to say. I’ve seen the game at its best and its worst, druid is a sleeper class. Its never doing poor and always eating better than what people realise.
People choose not to look at it, cause its not running a mock like it was when it was buffed by 33% during Legion and people were running double ferals. Shocker.
To my knowledge, if you’re not having to spend mana to cast a spell, its instant and doesn’t force you to even shift, thats sounds pretty rewarding, if you ask me.
As someone who has to spend energy to heal, take a very minor amount of damage reduction or even get attack speed. I would happily trade my tool kit, for yours. Every day of the week. Last thing I want to do, is have to afk wait for energy cause I decided to play defensive.
If feral, boomie and shaman want to be treated like a dps spec maybe they should have the same amount of healing as a monk or rogue or arms warrior, one button every half a minute or little heals you can actively use for a resouce which you rely on to dps–Maybe also be possible to disarm or smth or atleast do reduced damage when disarmed, yikes.
Not to even go into discussion about how you cant root druid full stop.
Druid will always be eating good and the class design will always be borderlining degenerate, but that can be applied to most melee and wizards in 2023, its just smash face on keyboard and do 120k dps sustained for 30 seconds through CC / Disarm.
Same for wizards with kick being pseudo meaningless, you basically have to line incarn vs boomie too like its a BFA destro or smth.
Comparing druid healing or druid anything to dk / warrior is like comparing apples to oranges, sure they’re all melee, but warriors and dks can be shut down more pro-actively by a singular player, than a druid ever can, even if its just little things. Like Roots.
Druid has very prominent uptime with a wide selection of defensive options even in its “pety” state as it stands right now.
Druid is more comparable to a monk / dh unironically with how frequent they can be up in your grill and they way those are designed isn’t any better either. A class which is better off dead than viable just for mental health’s sake.
Thanks for coming to my ted talk
Also don’t you have some hill to afk on in a pvp wq area so you can meld shapeshift / goblin glider in a loosing situation?
