ToL nerf sucks. The only way to make it semi-ok in my opinion is to make boomchicken a CD as well. It's not fair that just one of the specs gets the nerfbat. The reason I say only boomkin is because it's a talented thing that only balance druids get, unlike bear and kitty which everyone gets.
Yes its a buff, but it looks very situational. As put by someone else its a "glorified trinket" Powerful but still situational, why not just keep tree form and make this new talent the "oh snap" button they so wish it to be.Changing the talent because they wanted to makes no sense, I don't think I have heard of them doing something like that. As for the PvPers whining about getting focused, now its just as worse if not more. Players will know to focus on the huge tree (which they should be able to see from far away) or the caster which won't still hide very well in the crowd, since they will be the only kind druid that is not attacking but is switching forms to keep distance. Right now being in tree form gives both sides the same info "Healer : Kill or Protect"Also tree form dance FTW. I hope they let us keep it.
Meh, made a druid for treeform, now this is going to happen in cataclysm, if i wanted to show off my gear i wouldn't have rolled druid, in my opinion this is just lame. Really lame. Which forms are going to follow?And also : Tree form casting emote > Horrible night elf casting emote.Yes, i know it's kind of a buff, but still.
Pally healz get a "pet" and aoe healz "whoot"Shammy healz get an aoe hot and can run while casting "WHOOT"Priest healz get Leap of Faith a "life grip" "WHOOOOT"Druid healz ..... well they get ToL form on a cooldown i see where people wanna see the gear thats fine but when im healing a 25 man icc run im not lookin at who is wearing what im looking at who is needing healeg. tree form was the reason i rolled a druid the ear is nice to look at and normally i dont run around everywhere as a tree so i do see it as far as seeing gear theres that option to not show a helm or cloak on any toon so some stuff wont get seen. with druids not really getting ne new healz and stuff in cata the least that could be done is let us keep our ToL or get a glyph that keeps it. Ill be keeping my druid resto though i know alot of people will respec. the whole wonder of the druid is the fact that we do go around in forms of nature which is what i see in the gear that they come out with. gonna be a different game with all the trees chopped down
Does Exotic pets have a cooldown? No!Does Moonkin form have a cooldown? No!Does Metamorphosis have a cooldown? Yes, but i'm pretty sure most demonology locks would rather be in the demon form all the time.. this change is just stupid. Give us an "in tree" cooldown instead.
Have you seen most of the Druid tier? They are wearing leafy rubbish!j/k...kinda.Anyway, Cataclysm is still months from being ready, and it's obvious very few players, if any, are in favor of having twist-machines on cooldown. So... hopefuly... Blizzard will hear us, and also realize that it'd be unfair to punish just one specialization for something that all Druids uh... miss... out... on... ? Trees 4 lyfe!
Blizzard does have a point about not seeing the gear but on the same note people who have the gear and want to show it off often do in the cities. during a raid when the forms come into play i hope that no one is looking at how good my resto druids armor looks. some of the tier armor does look cool, i have several lower tier sets in the bank ill put on and show off in Dalaran. But i also agree that the whole reason i rolled a druid was to be a tree. I mean how may people can say "Im a tree that runs around like a chicken with my head cut off tossing HoTs on a raid of 25 people, AND THEY LOVE IT" And getting into a random the first words "yay a tree XD" its just the thought of a tree running around.With the cooldown im thinking its gonna be "oh noes she hit tree form raid must be going bad" then ppl will panic and thats when mistakes i think will be made = less then a happy raid.
goddamned stay off treeform! why the tree? ... go afther the moonkins not the trees!
Dose this mean there's going to be armor customization art design coming in Cata? That would be soo cool^^ Its going to bring a tear to my eye to see Quel' delar become junk compaired to a lv 81 green weapon ;_;
