    Imagine whinging about class balance when there are multiple tuning passes before Mythic raid release in BFA.

    Typical mmo champ tbf, complaining about numbers right now is kinda pathetic, I know that sounds a bit harsh but in every class forum it seems like theres a thread about how bad their class is. Gameplay wise I can understand but if you are staring at skada/details on beta you are doing it wrong.

    Or you know, you could actually read the thread and see the things most people are complaining/concerned about have nothing to do with numbers.

    Ye i get that and I have read the thread, was just making the point cause there have been a few comments in this thread and others about about how people will swap classes just cause there spells dont hit hard enough or their heals dont do enough etc

    Just to followup on that its because I'm choosing between druid and mage for my main next expansion and theres a lot useful feedback for me in this thread, for example about how the class feels unfun without the abilities that Blizz took out and so on or how the removal of this ability wont make much diffenrence overall etc. But when people are just looking at which spec/class does the most dmg/healing its actually not useful at all imo.

    Barkskin is off the GCD, as well. Only thing different in terms of BfA and live with respect to GCD is Frenzied Regen. With the most current build, we're back to 24% healing over 3 seconds, and 2 charges.

    *edit* - Should mention that general self-sustain is a little hard to gauge right now, as there's quite a few bugs going on with Resto Affinity and Nature's Guardian. Azerite traits also affect this, and your mileage may vary.

    Which spec are you talking about for druid? I'm assuming Balance if it's between druid and a mage, and I rather enjoy how Balance plays out right now for the most part with all the changes to the spells and rotation. Only other spec I've played a lot on the beta is Guardian... and despite how much I'll always be a bear at heart, it feels almost exactly like Legion, except with less stuff going on. On the plus side, there's so much you don't have to think about with Guardian that it's pretty easy to raid lead or call out things and not get distracted.

    “Society is endangered not by the great profligacy of a few, but by the laxity of morals amongst all.”
    “It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle.”

    So a small bump for Guardian (and smaller one for Feral) Utility: Soothe is now class-wide (instead of all specs but Guardian) and Soothe can be cast in ALL forms.

    That's... actually pretty fucking sweet, assuming we actually have a fair amount of Enrage buff mechanics.
    Uses the same signature for over a year, just randomly gets infracted for it recently.
    Placeholder signature is placeholder and will hopefully make me finish my shit (lol it didn't).
    Oh yeah, I'm a Druid and I also made a spreadsheet for the Order Hall that will continue in BfA.

    Looking forward to the fairweathers getting off of my class so I can go back to being special snowflake status.

    You should've played survival in Legion if you want special snowflake status.

    There have always been a lot of boomkins around through the expansions. Even through the numerous shitty reworks.

    Druids, just like every other class have good and bad expacs and if you're one of them number pushing top o da meters type people and this isnt a druids expac then just reroll and come back when the buff wheel points at druids again. If you just like the certain playstyle of whatever druid spec you play and you're not too pushed about meter whoring or best possible spec then just keep playing whatever druid spec you like.
    Its been 14 years of whining at every patch but it's not going to change, either suck up the changes or move onto a class thats in line with your goals of the next expac.
    Here here well said!!!!!
