Can druids carry a bow or any other type of ranged weapon?

No. No bows, guns, wands or throwing weapons of any kind.

I wish.

New question - would you rather have a bow, be able to use axes or carry some sort of leather shield (with less ac, but some +block / +def)

I had some hope that it would make us more powerful. lol

I would say bow. We are able to equip things in the other slots. For now our ranged slot is 100% wasted space. Even if you never fired one shot with it, you could at least get some stats you normally couldn't.

Although I really miss wearing a shield. I just like the look of it.

What are you wanting to use a ranged weapon for? What would be its purpose?

We already have ranged abilities that do alot better job than a bullet or arrow.

Actually my choice would be a wand.

I would have to agree with Anubrim and say that I would like to see Druids use wands, from the selection above. Even if we could only use Fire, Nature and Frost wands... no arcane or shadow wands.

I wouldn't mind seeing us able to use wands either, However I would think we would only get to use arcane and nature since that is the discipline of our spells.

Wands weren't a choice or I would definitly pick those. I think we should get something like charms or totems or something. As stated before, we don't really need a ranged attack weapon, but anything in the ranged slot that could add stats is better than an empty slot.

One of the blues on the WoW forum made a post awhile back saying that the devs were aware of the imbalance of losing stats and were looking into giving druids/paladins/shaman some form of range item. They didn't say, but I wouldn't expect it to be a useable item like bows or wands, just something to balance out the loss of a stat slot. I'm guessing we'll see it added in the expansion.

Anything to add stats would be nice. My opinion on all three is

Paladin: Bow or gun
Druid: Wand
Shaman: Should all die! bahahahaha........ok tough call on shaman, cause you know they have it so rough :P. Maybe wand or throwing weapons.

All your more powerful druids have Egon's Blaster... who wants anything more?

Make the ranged slot also a trinket slot. Those who can use ranged items may choose. The rest of us can equip an extra trinket. I know for me it would be a permanent carrot slot.
