If this was indeed nerfed, and you didn't see it coming, you need to open your eyes and mind a little more. Most people saw a nerf coming since day 1. Enjoy it while it lasted.

- Moonkin Dance: It's better than yours
Uh.... Boomy's are better than ever. Like op.
It's a talent for utility and support, with a small, passive, throughput buff (the +6% Primary Stat).
If you aren't a Guardian and pop it, it should let you tank equal to a Guardian-spec Druid, not tank better than any tank existing in the game.
If you are Balance, but want to avoid some form of a silence effect for a period, it should let you go Feral and do COMPARABLE DPS, not 2-3x as much.
If you are Feral, and a boss has a phase that only ranged can reach, it should let you do comparable damage to a Balance Druid for the duration, not 200k DPS.
Do we see where it was horribly imbalanced now folks?
Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.
For guardians it's a nice talent. Long duration, OK heals. Heals could have been stronger tho, They heal me sligthly over 20k/tick and with 480k that's not very good at all. But i's 80k Every 12 seconds, with a 45 second duration it can heal you 15 ticks, that's 300k over 45 seconds. So roughly 60% of my hp over 45 seconds. Would help out healers a tiny bit but it's nowhere near justifying the 6min cooldown it has. Any other Defensive CD i got helps healers alot more.
Guess it has to be like this because of the pvp aspect. Not to mention any guardian would just pop this and heal himself. No one would have another person tank and spam some healing touches.
It could be better for guardians since it does not help us at all being stand ins for a healer. And for a tank to pop dps isn't really an option. If you're not going a Festergut type boss that is.
Based on what the OP said it doesnt seem like it.
Also take into mind people that if your not of that spec, you dont have all the bleeds, or dots. So ofc to have comparable dps ferocious bite and wrath are going to hit harder then they would in boomy/feral.
So little actual information in this thread. Anybody have any hard data on the actual nerf? Massive amounts of damage on a 6 minute CD sounds like an obvious PvP balance problem. It would be nice if they kept the throughput the same. One third damage on a 2 minute CD or half damage on a 3 minute CD.
I'm actually glad the nerf was sooner than I expected, how can you be a balance and dps as cat , is just ridiculous to me.....it might be fight qq'ing in pvp, but in pve its not really ideal.
As a Guardian, my wrath is still hitting for 78k (12k without HotW up). So good enough. Seems to have little effect on my cat form however. Not tried healing.
Update: Healing Touch, 37k without 140k with. And something I dont see mentioned here is that this talent lets you cast Rejuvenation while in bear form (15k a tick). However it does NOT seem to effect Healing Touch from Natures Swiftness while in bear form.

Well atleast I had fun today with it (If europe gets the hot-fix soon) as feral druid DPS.
90k DPS on HC dummy during the CD with 22 non-crits, 1 crit #Check
2 warrios killed that didnt get shit what happens while doing daylies #Check
No complanining here trough, just saying Im missing it, if nerf is out
One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
Since today I am not getting 230k wrath crits anymore as feral but I do think it still does good dps but is not worth going out of catform anymore to get extra dps
Right now it does still allow you todo ranged dps at the cost of no dps loss or it lets you tank or heal
TREE DURID IS 4 PEE
I'm very surprised no one brought up Shadow Priests yet.
You are missing the point of the entire skill. The skill was not designed to give you the power to two-shot people. The skill was designed to give you utility in dungeons and raids. The 6% increase to all stats is great withinitself, but throw in the ability to do things outside of your spec, and do them well, and you have a great talent.
If you're crying because they didn't announce the nerf, then welcome to WoW. This happens almost every hotfix. If you're crying BECAUSE they nerfed it, then just stop, please. The skill is not useless by any means.
Why is it that performing the other spec has to go from OP dmg to crap. It should be comparable, you know, so you " can perform roles outside your normal specialization".
Im frustrated when this gets a stealth hotfix and hunters are still 2 shotting people. Warriors are killing everything in sight in a shockwave/blanket silence.
O and locks can soulstone in arena..
