My very first character ever back in vanilla WoW was a druid. I loved the class, even though it took me a while to get the hang of it. But once the whole aspect of being able to shift in and out of various forms to survive darn near anything kicked in, I was relatively unstoppable. I switched from Alliance to Horde after hitting level 60, and from druid to priest. But I still loved druids, and I loved raiding with them. One of the top druids in my vanilla raiding guild was simply brilliant; he was a healer, but he’d swap between forms all the time if there was something he could do to help.
And that was the druid class to me, in a nutshell — the extreme versatility of being able to do just about anything because you could simply shift forms. I loved it. I still love it, and I have two druid alts, though I rarely play them these days (not enough time in the day). There’ve been some pretty interesting conversations around the blogosphere about the state of druids in the upcoming expansion, however, well worth reading.
- Falling Leaves and Wings points out exactly what the resto druid community is concerned about.
- Restokin has a two-part post detailing what exactly is wrong with having a melee moonkin.
- Tree Heals Go Woosh calmly tells druids not to panic. In large, friendly letters.
