View Full Forums : That blue post...

Can anyone link me up with that blue post where blizzard stated they wanted to allow more specialisation in the feral tree, so dedicated cat druids would be more on a par with rogue dps but lack the ability to tank as well, and the other way around for bear druids?

Someone linked it somewhere on TDG but I can't remember where. :>

This what you're referring to?
Someone reference the druid nerfs in BC. I think this was partially the reason for them (as well as bears being able to do a lot of dps as bears, IIRC). We don't think druids NEED to choose bear or cat. But it would be nice if you had the option of choosing bear > cat or cat > bear. Going that route lets us justify your being an awesome tank (because you're giving up some dps) or vice versa. I don't think anyone is arguing (I hope) that all Ferals with any spec need to be as good at tanking as prot warriors and as good at dps as rouges just by shapeshifting and swapping gear. I think we all know the outcome of such a design. But there is a difference between "as good as rogues" and "worth bringing on a raid."
