For most people, the only debate left in the stance issues is when it's offically going to be pulled. Since this process is taking longer than expected...

After 1.5+ years of debate and bickering, I hate seeing the word "stance." I'ld like the devs to say -offically- that druid stances, as they were proposed during class re-envisioning, will never go live.

If stances were added in the near future, it'ld be like the devs saying "We considered your class under-balanced for the past 1.5+ years while you were paying the same account fees as people with balanced classes, but...." I'm not saying I think our class was out of balance for 1.5+ years (only since TSS imo), but if the devs intended to add stances this entire time and took this long to happen, that'ld be the messege I get.

y final word on the subject is...

There are druids who like to nuke more than they like to heal and vice versa, but the bottom line is that there isn't any such thing as a 'healing' or a 'nuking' druid, there is only one type of a druid - A Druid. To be "A Druid" you need not to go into a 'mode' or label yourself to your prefered ability -- you need to be able to do what is of most effectivness at the given moment. There are druids who enjoy doing a certain side of class more so than another side, but any skilled druid is expert at all aspects of the class, and doesn't go through a single play session with out using both healing and DPS extensivly. Druids are likely the last class to be considered one-sided, and promoting one-sidedness over ability-concurrentcy will do nothing but hurt the class.

Definaly won't be the last thread, but it's the last issue up for debate at this point.

I am disappointed with Sony.
I don't care about stances. I don't want stances. What I want is someone, hell ANYONE from Sony to post on these boards and acknowledge they even read what we post anymore here. I can't remember the last time I saw a reply from one of them.

I miss Absor and Brenlo :(

At present Sony has said nothing about it. It is the belief of many druids that this is a dead issue and they have not addressed it in a very long time.

I think that since we as a druid community over several years of complaining that we did not have a group heal and finally got one that the stances is a dead issue. WOOHOOO
