    • Fixed an issue where the Treant Sprout summoned from Treecorn was missing all of its attacks.

    Quests

    Those are the wrong hot fixes. The ones from today have a bunch of Mythic+ and Class changes with restarts

    Where are the heal druid buffs? Blizzard really thinks this is balanced? Kinda zero or just 1 or 2 heal druids on first 5 sites in top rankings for m+. Heal druid kinda becomes useless for >=m+15



    Also heal druids kinda not allowed in mythic raiding.

    I guess you had no problem with Druid being by far the best M+ healer in BFA?

    There are plenty of Druids doing +20 keys. You make it sound like they are broken but they are not. Stop crying.

  10. #10
    But heal druids are lacking useful cooldowns so their heal should be buffed IMHO.
    If there's 2 disc priests in the raid there's almost nothing to heal for the others. And the barrier is awesome for raids and m+

  11. #11
    Tyrannical change is welcomed but I would like more something like 20% more hp and 20% more damage instead of 30-15.

  12. #12
    Very welcome tank changes. Probably doesn't do much for DH meta, but other tanks are way better of.

  13. #13
    Sure every dps got buff but noooo not ret why im not surprised

  14. #14
    OK another +5% to assa - and already is decent. It will be again top rogue spec in middle of exp.

    Ret is already middle of the table the specs that got buffs were the lowest performing specs

    This. And heal druids give ZERO support to the group, also it is hard for them to top tank if he drops a few times to low HP, you have one emergency heal thats it. Also if entire group gets lots of dmg income over some time it is also very hard to top them all. Just having this stupid barkskin 1 time is a total joke to what other healers have. And they do even worst DPS while healing compared to pala and priest. And have to shift into moonkin form wasting a cd then shifting out to heal again. Ok. Then having no big cds like bubble or shielding or some kind of invincible mechanic. And theyre worst in PvP right now too.

    Agree heal monk is same as shitty as heal druid right now.

    So you have to get like 99.999% of the best heal druids on the planet to get 20er keys done, mostly also in combination with the best dps and best tanks. Ok dude.

    Look at higher raid heal contribution, no heal druids, enough said.

    Already decent? The spec has a total of 543 mythic parses in the last two weeks and over half of that is shriek plus huntsman. Of the remaining 150ish another 70 is hungering.

    https://www.warcraftlogs.com/zone/ra...=Assassination

    There is literally one assass parse for council zero for sludge zero for slg zero for denny all time not just past two weeks

    Are you trolling? Druids have brez they have typhoon they have ursol's they have roots they have soothe in some cases hibernate. You can complain about healing output but claiming you can't support a group with utility is just wrong there are better options currently but it's not like druid was suddenly stripped of it's utility.

    Now youre the one trolling, right? You have always a Boonkin in the group, battle rez. Root is redundant and same is typhoon. Hibernate. Rofel. Do you even play top m+ like >=15? Compared to what other healers bring to the group and also mechanics like invincible, mass dispel, group shielding, damage mitigation and emergency cds?

    There is little or non parse because no1 plays assa. Every1 play popular spec, gear it, chose propper convent ect. Transition to another one will be hard and timecomsumming. BUT it will be best spec like always.

    It's literally not the best spec or anywhere near right now. Sub is superior for specific burst and outlaw is superior for cleave.

    Hibernate is sometimes useful I didn't say always but it certainly made underrot a joke. Also of course the top groups are fully optimized it doesn't mean druids utility suddenly doesn't count because you say so. Druids have 19 healers over 2k Monks have 2 Priests 24 Pallys 42 Shamans 71 it's almost like it's a super super small population whose players tend to play the best spec available. You want to see what one spec truly overshadowing the others looks like. Look at tanks DK - 5, War -1, Pally - 6, Druid - 13, Monk - 8, DH - 124 now that right there is what an actually massive imbalance looks like. Shamans have a decent edge but priests pallys and druids are all decently represented over 2k for healers. For tanks it's just a lol to play anything other than dh.
