Mage/Shaman polymorphs me. Assuming the nerf applies to shifting out of polymorph as well, I wait until it ends. I spend more mana shifting back into my form (which is essentially required for all types of druid in order to actually use core abilities) than the mage/shaman spend polymorphing me.
He morphs me again. I spend more mana than he spent again.
Protector of the Innocent is now a Tier 1 Holy Talent and has been revamped - Casting a targeted heal on any target, including yourself, also heals you for 1240.83 to 1427.62. (Multi ranks, but currently all with the same value)
I think it will be safe to assume that you will only be able to be polymorphed out of Flight form while on the ground. Think about it, why would that work when no other form of CC works on mounted targets?
Horrible changes: polymorph on feral (lolwhut?!), nerf of hunters (all of them as BM lose arcane shot and 10% rap). Also, to all MM or SV hunters who don't want to be BM in cata: wait and see but it was a pain for us (BM) to have to switch to SV then MM in WotLK to be able to raid. After 2 years, we are more than happy to be able to play again. I hope all specs will be playable, but stop nerfing or crying about BM as we have been waiting 2 years to be able to play.
Relax about your class not getting any changes!!
You have to know that changes are coming and they are working on all classes, Just because they didn't post any or many changes for a class don't mean they are done with them!
Drives me nuts reading the forums, looking for good information, and all I see are people posting that their class isn't getting changes, or what have you...
Games not out yet, still in Beta/PTR. Complain when the patch goes live and there are no changes to your class and you are in the shadow of other classes!
Gosh.. get that stupid "cleanse magick" back but dont touch our class-defining strengths like poly immunity. A shitstorm is coming, i can see that.. F*ck that healing seriously.. It's been screwing up the entire class like a plague since vanilla beta. Like they took Play Dead away and gave it to hunters, because "healer that can drop aggro is op". Screw healbots, really. Honestly, healing is only 1/4th of the class now, why should the rest of 3/4 of the class suffer because of it?
What's interesting about the whole polymorph thing for druids is the fact that I specifically remember blues stating in the past that the reason Shaman would not get a "ghost wolf makes you immune to polymorph" because it was a signature ability for druids.
I know it's mentioned that this is all based off of tooltips, but I didn't see Moonkin form listed there. Is it safe to assume Moonkin was supposed to be included in that as well?
