Okay, so this week, I spent a couple hours digging through the druid list of questions in the post on the Druid forums.
I thought it would be a fun exercise to dig through the list of questions and see some of the most frequently asked questions for each spec, that I thought were good questions I would want to know the answer to. I tried to limit it to just a couple questions for each of the 4 talent specs. So, here’s what I gathered from the posts. Each of these is a question that someone asked in the thread, that I copied & pasted (with some editing) here.
I wanted a good list compiled to highlight some of the common themes of people’s questions – so we could get a feel for what types of things druids are still struggling with, or want to have clarified. If you have other things you’d want to add, you can feel free to post them. These are what I thought were some of the more urgent questions that people asked, that I’d like to see the answers to. I avoided any question having to do with the form graphics, since we’ve heard a little too much about them lately. I really care about the gameplay questions that would be interesting to hear more about. I also limited it to just a couple questions for each spec, so that it would have a reasonable number of questions, so there were some things that didn’t make my cut.
Druid questions compiled:
General druid questions:
- Do you have any plans to revamp the idol system? Or, Is it possible to allow more than 3 types of druid idols per tier upgrade? Why do idols generally only effect one spell/ability when we are supposed to be using more than 1 spell/ability?
- Is the Blizzard team concerned with how complex Moonkin and feral cat dps rotations are?
- Why feral druids have been moved away from a hybrid playstyle? It seems that with every expansion feral has lost some of it’s caster viability.
Bear tanking questions:
- Is Blizzard pleased with the itemization that Feral tanks have? Why do I have to do Arena to get the best gear for PvE?
- Is Blizz happy with the implementation of Savage Defense?
- Any chance of getting Berserk off the GCD?
- Why doesn’t bear form get attack power from agility?
Cat feral questions:
- Can we get the positional requirement removed from Shred?
- Will there be any tweaks made to Cat feral charge to better align it with its cooldown?
- Are there plans to improve feral gear itemization? Why are ferals so singled out by the ‘clean up the loot tables’ policy?
- Any chance cower could be made a little more useful?
Restoration tree questions:
- Will tranquility ever be useful at level 80?
- Are you satisfied with the role that lifebloom has taken with its most recent changes, in both PvE and PvP?
- Are the devs happy with Revitalize?
Moonkin balance questions:
- Is there any plans to change eclipse into a more consistent proc? Or, to make moonkin DPS less reliant on Eclipse random procs?
- Are there any plans to address Moomkin PvP problems?
- Are there any plans to get some more spells into our moonkin rotation?
- Any chance of owlkin frenzy being a damage reducer, or something to help while stunned?
